SET Preparation

State Eligibility Test is a state level test since it’s conducted in different states of India, like Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, etc. Edu Vidya offers you some of the essential tips for preparation of SET.

While preparation, read the topics as you are reading story as this makes your memory strong and enables you to learn the chapters easily. 
Try to make notes in the form of bullets as this will enable you to revise the topics in lesser time. 
Every topic is important so, don’t try to skip any chapter.
Give more time to theatrical papers than practical papers since this is because practicing the practical papers will be easier than theoretical papers.
