7 Secrets to Crack TANCET (Everything you need to know about the exam)


7 Secrets to Crack TANCET

‘Festina Lente’ is a Latin translation of a classical adage/oxymoron that means “Make Haste Slowly.” It does not make sense, right? Well, I’ll give you another explanation that best suits the phrase. ‘Proceed Xpeditiously but Prudently.’ Still, scratching your head? Some pictorial idea would help you, I guess. Look at the picture below, one with the Dolphin and the Anchor. The dolphin exhibits the meaning behind the word ‘Haste,’ and the anchor signifies the meaning behind the word ‘Slowly.’

There is a whole Historic fable behind this bemusing proverbial expression. The Roman Emperor Augustus advised his soldiers to ‘hasten slowly’ in the war as recklessness would give the enemy an advantage. He also thought that rashness and mindless attacking was dangerous for any officer and taught that diligence is the key. One has to think twice before proceeding with a decision, but at the same time, the thinking process should not slow down the action.

The reason why I am pinpointing this is because the phrase ‘Festina Lente’ resonates with the preparation strategy one has to administer when it comes to cracking an entrance exam.

With tancet exams 2022 coming soon, the candidates have to keep in mind what Emperor Augustus told the commanders,

“That which has been done well has been done quickly enough.”

In this blog, you will discover the secrets one must know beforehand while preparing for the upcoming TANCET exam.

Also, we will provide you with trivia related to the exam, the preparation strategy, the dates to remember for the exam, tancet syllabus 2022, tancet colleges for mba, and many more interesting details for the candidate to delve into. So before taking a dive, I want y’all to read the lines written by French Poet and Critique Nicolas Boileau. It will provide you with the right dose of motivation.

“Slowly make haste, and without losing courage;

Twenty times redo your work;

Polish and re-polish endlessly,

And sometimes add, but often take away”

7 Secrets to Crack TANCET Exam


Time Management is key to Success

  • “It is not enough to be busy… The question is what are we busy about?” said Henry David Thoreau. A Transcendentalist, Naturalist, Poet, and Philosopher, Thoreau’s doctrine on time management would be a lifesaver to all the aspirants for competitive exams. In this quote, the man who advocated the philosophy of ‘simple living’ talks about hustle culture. Today’s digital age breeds an illusion around toxic productivity and pushes people to be on their wheels 24/7. Thoreau asks us a simple question, ‘What makes you busy?’ If you find the answer to this, you can be relieved from a lot of disquietude. You have to set a time frame and work on your tasks accordingly.


So, the first and foremost thing you must do before preparing for any entrance exam is to know the important dates of the exam. That means you must know the date of announcement of the exam, the actual date of the exam, the result date, and the call letter deliverance date. Only if you have an actual date in your hand, you will be able to schedule your preparation strategy.

Here are some points you need to know about TANCET 2022 exam and some to its important dates to note down:

 Don’t Make Silly Mistakes

  • Yes, to err is human and no one is said to be 100% perfect. Making mistakes and learning from them is a part of human life. We are not talking about it now. But absent-mindedness and irresponsibility will cause you serious troubles. When you are doing a task, you need to give your best. Your commitment levels and intent talk heaps about your personality. High concentration skill is the X factor weapon in your arsenal when you attempt for your tancet exam. As the Motivational Speaker and an American Entrepreneur, Jim Rohn puts it, “The best advice I ever came across on the subject of Concentration is: Wherever you are, be there.”

Read the official notification thoroughly and apply for the exam carefully. The application process will be online so make sure that you enter all the required details without mistakes. It is believed that every year 1000s of forms get rejected because of inaccuracies in applying. Your journey shouldn’t end even before it gets started.


Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters. – Albert Einstein


Here are some points you need to read about the application procedure and eligibility criteria for the tancet exam 2022:

Candidates who are appearing in the final semester examination in 2022 can also apply for tancet admission



  1. Don’t give erroneous details of your personal information

 While you are answering the questions given in the tancet application form, make sure that you don’t commit any spelling mistakes. Because each information you enter is important. If it is filled with mistakes then your admission process will get hampered. For example, let us consider a candidate’s name as Ragul who’s applying for tancet mba 2022. In the box where he has to fill in his name, instead of Ragul if he types in as Rahul with an H, he will surely face problems in the cross-checking stage. Don’t be like Rahul. Sorry, Ragul. Enter the data that is registered in your Identity proof. Be it the spelling of your name or your residential address, make sure that it matches your data in Identity proof (Aadhar card, PAN card, Driving License, Passport). So give your utmost attention when filling your tancet application form. Avoid careless mistakes at all costs. Because a single error can cause your application form to get rejected and you need to wait for another whole year to attempt your exam.

  1. Select your test city wisely

 There are 15 cities available from which you can pick your desired exam center location. If a test center is located in your hometown then it is well and good. But if you have to travel to a different city then make sure that you pick a place near to your city. In such cases, it is preferred that you go and stay in the city on the day before the exam. Don’t hustle and travel long distances on the date of the exam. It mounts unnecessary anxieties as you will be faced with exam pressure.

  1. Have all the Documents beforehand

 Every entrance exam asks a certain set of documents to be submitted as a part of the identification process. Make sure that you have it up-to-date with correct information about your spelling of your name and your residential address.

  1. Upload the correct file sizes

Know Your Syllabus

  • “Know your enemy and you can fight a hundred battles without disaster,” said Sun Tzu, a legendary Chinese general, military strategist, and a Philosopher. So you must know what you are fighting for. Never be in the dark when it comes to preparing for any entrance exams. Know the syllabus by-heart. Don’t be in the dark when it comes to exam pattern and syllabus. Also, don’t read new topics till the eleventh hour of the exam. Complete the portions two months or three months before the official exam and revise the entire portions from scratch again. Only then, it’ll be easy to brush up your memory at the time of last-minute preparations. Solve practice questions or quizzes for every individual topic. That way you won’t be able to forget the concepts.

 Study About Your College


  • Let me tell you a jaw-dropping statistic you never heard off. The staggering number will definitely make you think about the reality we live in. 99 out of 100 students never learn in-depth about the college they join in. They just apply with the facts and myths according to hearsay. They never read the brochure of the university, or check their official website, or go through the alumni list, and heck some don’t even visit the college until admission. Don’t be such a nutcase. Know your destination. In this case, the colleges you want to get placed into. Analyse the colleges that accept TANCET and read about its pros and cons. Go through their websites and study about the colleges. Read their prospectus and have a good idea of which college you aim for. It’ll help you in the counseling.

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”  Benjamin Franklin

Practice Makes a Man Perfect



  • “Take your jacket off. Hang it up. Put it back on. Take it off. Hang it up. Put it down. Put in back on. Take your jacket off. Hang it up.” Do these lines take you to a walk down the memory lane? The image of the stern faced Mr. Han giving workout commands to the boisterous Dre Parker. Yes, the scene in the famous movie The Karate Kid acted by Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith is still a fan-favourite all over the world. If you analyse the scene closely, it conveys a hidden meaning behind the specific workout regimen. It metaphorically conveys that practice makes a man perfect. You have to do it, keep doing it, make it your obsession and let every single cell on your body know that you’re committed to achieving it.
  • Plan your study cycle. This is one of the most common pieces of advice you would have come across but it works 100%. Device a schedule and study your portions accordingly. The syllabus for TANCET is vast and you need to cover a wide range of topics to crack the exam. So work out a preparation strategy that best suits you. Be it 3 months or 6 months or even a year. Make sure that you complete the portions without procrastinating. Plan out daily, a weekly or monthly set of topics to cover and complete the syllabus well before the exam time.

“There’s no easy way around it, no matter how talented you are … your talent is going to fail you if you’re not skilled. If you don’t study, if you don’t work really hard and dedicate yourself to being better every single day, you’ll never be able to communicate with people your artistry the way that you want!”

Will Smith.

“The early bird gets the first worm, but the wisest bird gets the fastest one.”
Matshona Dhliwayo


  • Pick the right mentor for you. Let me give you 2 examples. Take the example of JK Simmons’ role in the movie Whiplash (2014). He is an abusive music teacher. He rarely encourages his students but screams at them, yells curses, bullies them, sometimes even slaps them, and worst case scenario, hurl chairs at them. He is the classic example of an egotistical control-freak who shrouds under the mask of ‘extracting the best out of the student.’ It is an anxiety-inducing movie that you shouldn’t miss. Streaming on Amazon Prime.The other example I want to present if of our very own Samuthrakani in the movie Saatai. He was a beloved, empathetic teacher. He understood he needs of the students and helped them in a kind way. He introduced    novel ways of teaching in his methods and found great success. He always is a support system to the students and gives much-needed philosophical insights to boost the confident level of the students


  • The reason I provided you with these 2 scenarios is because, be it studying online, or enrolling in an institute; make sure that you receive A-grade coaching. A good guidance system will automatically motivate to you believe in yourself.
