    3. Hello Joyal,

      Yes, since IMU CET is not so big exam in terms of students applying for it, study material is hard to find for it. Right now we are not planning to make one.

      Since you have done B.Sc, you can go for Lateral entry, no need of 12th marks. Lateral entry means, you will get admission in to 2nd year directly. But the clear process for it can only be known by contacting IMU. So, contact with them, and share your knowledge with us, as it will help other students also.

      Thanks and like our FB page for more updates.
