Candidates with higher ranks and good score will get the college of their choice and the desired course however, candidates with lower rank and score might need to compromise with their course or college.

Preparation Strategy

Pay equal attention and time to each of the three subjects (Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics/Biology).

Get your Chemistry basics right. Go through formulae and remember them.

For a good score in Physics, practice solving problems.

Revise and remember theorems and formulae. Make your fundamentals strong.

Split your daily preparation in such a way that you can study a little bit of all three subjects. This will make sure that you are on track with each subject.

Go through earlier years exam papers.

Take mock tests and check your preparation.

Practice time management skills.

For admission into B. E. course, the candidate should have passed Higher Secondary Examination of the Assam Higher Secondary Education Council with minimum aggregate of 50% (45% in case of SC and 40% in case of ST) in Physics, Chemistry and Biology in the same sitting.

2. Is there distribution of seats in each engineering branch across Government Engineering Colleges in Assam?

Yes!! There is distribution of seats in various government colleges across the state of Assam. The following table explains the allocation of seats in various colleges across Assam against different Engineering courses.

3. How many seats are allotted for MBBS and BDS courses (Medical Seats)?

Total number of Medical Seats 626 (State quota seats 503)

Total number of Dental Seats 44 (State quota seats 16)

4. Will preparation for other entrance exams like JEE, BITSAT, etc. be enough to prepare for the Assam CEE?

With serious preparation for JEE-Mains, you dont have to put in much effort to study anything extra for Assam CEE. But, however some topics are different from JEE-Mains and BITSAT. While JEE-Mains is considered to be tough and concentrates more on the problem solving ability, Assam CEE is relatively simpler and focuses more on time management as well as practical knowledge. Therefore, solve as many old previous years question papers to boost up the confidence level. This will automatically help in getting a self confidence while preparation.

5. How are the seats reserved for B.E/B. Tech courses based upon caste for the candidates of Assam?

6. How are the seats reserved for MBBS/BDS courses based upon caste for the candidates of Assam?

7. If I do not get elected, will all my efforts go in vain?

Success is the sum of small efforts put in day in and day out. Therefore, if one does not clear Assam CEE, all the efforts that they have put in for years will definitely not go in vain as it will bring fruits at the right time and at the right place, in the future.
