The exam is over. The CIC’s B.Tech Entrance 2018 was the best paper made till now. It grilled the students, to distinguish the innovators from the rest.
Now, you have a month before the session starts, and you can utilize these 25-30 days for a headstart in your first year.
Disclaimer – My personal opinion.
But, chill these days. I don’t think you will be so relaxed in the future, as you are right now.
- Work on everything that you left for JEE and CIC preparation.
You can workout, watch TV series, movies, pursue your hobbies. Anything that you had to compromise during the last 2-3 years.
- Learn programming concepts.
If you are going to join CIC, or any other college CSE, you will have a programming course in the first semester. If you learn about the basics of it, you will be pretty much comfortable the next 7 months.
Unlike other colleges, there will be two courses in the first semester – Algorithms, and Data Structures.
So if you want, you can go though them. (Just an overview, so that you will easily understand everything when the teacher starts from scratch)
If you’re already comfortable with the basics (and an adventurous person), you can jump to the recommend books for the first semester.
And, the best free introductory course for Computer Science –
