We can only tell you to excel in your course and seek extra classes from the professor so as to clear doubts, solving previous year question papers, attending seminars and academics related workshop. But you can seek help from the seniors as they might have an insight of the college, and can tell you reliable information and tips to score high grades.
Best of luck!
Its really easy for anyone to get 9 pointer as compared to get admission in COEP if you can get admission into this reputed institutes then you can definitely secure 9 GPA but just you have to keep in mind that you should be regular in your studies and go through almost maximum previous year question before exams and make proper notes so that you can easily revise it .
Hope it helps!!!
Getting a 9 pointer in both the semester of First Year is not a difficult task at any of the college including COEP too for that you just have to maintain the notes what the prof are teaching and regularly practice what they have taught and sometimes refer the books as well in case when you have some doubt in the particular topic. See having a 9 pointer in the academics is good but that doesn't gonna helpful inorder to land at a good job , for that you have to focus on the extra curricular as well in the non curriculum as well such that you will have the 360 degree knowledge. So try to focus on that as well.
All the best
