Preparing for ACET in one month is absolutely possible.
The reason behind is simple.
25% of the Paper is High School Mathematics which is also the basic eligibility to sit for the exam. = EASY
50% of the Paper is Aptitude, Grammar and Logical Reasoning = EASY AGAIN
10% of the Paper consists of High School Statistics like Set Theories and Probability.
Lastly, 15% of the Paper is New which has topics like Random Variables, Hypothesis Testing, Join Distribution, etc.
But, you don’t even need to study that part if you’re really good with the rest of it.
All you need is a 50% to Pass the Exam.Dibakar Bala, Student Actuary
