## TS Polycet 2017 Result

**TS Polycet 2017 result** will be announced through the official website of the board. The result will be declared in the month of May tentatively. On the basis of the result the counselling will be held. Only those candidates who have scored well in the entrance examination will be called for the counselling process.

## How to Prepare

**Preparation:**

We have to select one topic in any of one subject and complete that topic in one day. Similarly divide all subjects into 15 to 20 topics and complete all in maximum of 20 days. Mathematics subject divide into 10 topics and physics and chemistry into 5 topics in each. Prepare like this math1 -> physics1-> math2-> chemistry1->math3->physics2->math4->chemistry2 ——-

**Practice:**

Gather model papers, previous papers, practice papers from market or from online and practice all and check the answers. Find mistakes and note down them in a note book. This will be complete in 2 to 4 days.

**Revise:**

In revise section we will concentrate on topics where we have done mistakes at the time of practice. 2 to 4 days time assign for this section. Finally 25 to 28 days duration is enough to prepare for PolyCET 2017. Refer NCERT Books too
