IMU CET Exam Pattern

different. IMU CET Sample papers are here for you.
There are six separate sections and each contains 50 or 25 questions. The exam is schedule to be conducted on 4th June.

IMU CET Exam Preparation Tips

As you must be aware about that, three general subjects Physics, Chemistry and Math are asked in the exam. Plus you have questions from G.K, English and Aptitude. So you can say that it is a complete package. This will help you in learning for imu cet exam pattern.
1)     As you must be preparing for other Entrance exams also, try to mix your studies, rather than preparing separately for this exam.
2)     Buy Sample Papers, they are available in various books shops. You can even get them through post.
3)     Consult a senior (if you have any), about how she or he prepared for this exam.
4)     The advantage of Sample papers is that, you will get insight of what has been asked in the previous years.
5)     Go through some of the papers and make a plan of progress. You plan need not to be very hard. Just stick to simple one.
6)     First try to solve questions that are given in NCERT books. Yes, you have to practice them and then you can move to other reference books.
7)     First day study for 1 hour, and then gradually increase your time for study.
8)     First see the syllabus that has been given in IMU Brochure and then study it.
9)     Before one month of the exam, try to solve one sample paper each day. Don’t cheat yourself. Try it, even if you get fewer score.
10)Try to keep a watch in front of you, so that you can estimate how much time you took to solve the whole paper.
11)In the end try to cover up the mistakes that you have done. Slowly you will see that, you have started to cover lot of questions.
12)Make notes in such a manner that, you can revise them before the exams. Don’t try to learn everything just before the exam.
13)Try to make two subjects out of three as your strong ones, let’s say Physics and Math.
14)For general knowledge, you can read newspapers every day. It will also help you to build up your English language.
15)Always remember your threshold. If you know that, you are not good at certain topic and you are trying, but not getting the desired results, then better leave it. During the exam When giving exam follow these steps:
1)     Keep a watch in front of you.
2)     First read the paper.
3)     Then open those sections in which you are good. Try to solve maximum questions, but they should be right.
4)     In last cover those topics about whom you are not sure.

Company Sponsorship tests are not that hard to crack. They have psychometric test that judge you mental state. Remember one thing; if you get good rank in IMU CET 2016, then, you will surely get a good sponsorship and a bright future in merchant navy. Start from today and study hard, because this 3-4 months hard work will pay off, when you start earning in Dollars. Best of Luck.

    what is the difference in doing DNS leading to Bsc nautical science vis a vis BSc Nautical science.Which stream of course a candidate should opt for …why have they designed these courses when they are leading to a candidite becoming second offr in same time frame ..

      In DNS leading, you have to work on board after one year of course and then you get the degree. On the other hand BSc Nautical Science, you study for three on land and then go to sea.

      Those who do BSc Nautical Science are exempted from giving written exams for 2nd mate promotion.
