This post is dedicated to aiding computer engineering graduates in preparing for the NEC License Exam.
Every academic year, the Nepal Engineering Council (NEC) administers an examination that engineering students must successfully pass. This successful completion is a prerequisite for registration with the NEC and obtaining a license, granting official permission to practice engineering. It is planned to be conducted four times each year. Following is the recent annual timeline for exam as published by NEC.
NEC License Exam Preparation Guide
The following method will help you to manage the preparation for NEC License Exam.
- Review the Syllabus
- Review What You’ve Learned
- Some Questions May Be Unexpected
- Use What You’ve Learned
- Gather More Information
- Practice with Past Questions
- Take Practice Tests
- Study Without Too Much Stress
Review the Syllabus
Look over the syllabus and make sure you understand the main ideas from each topic listed. You don’t need to know everything in depth.
Review What You’ve Learned
Think about the key things you’ve learned in your engineering classes over the past 4 years. Look back at your notes, textbooks, and other materials to refresh your memory.
Some Questions May Be Unexpected
There may be some unusual questions. Don’t worry too much about those. Just focus on answering the questions you know well.
Use What You’ve Learned
Rely on the engineering concepts, basic formulae, and problem solving methods you’ve learned. That knowledge will be very helpful for the exam.
Gather More Information
Try to learn more about the topics you feel less confident about. YouTube videos (like videos from gatesmasher), online websites(geeksforgeeks.org, javatpoint.com), and discussing with classmates can help.
Practice with Past Questions
Look at questions from previous years to understand the format and types of questions. This can be a helpful part of your preparation.
Take Practice Tests
Study Without Too Much Stress
Studying is important, but don’t worry excessively. Start preparing at least about a month before to balance studying and staying positive.
NEC License Exam Marking Criteria
