Are you preparing for an entrance exam (e.g. JEE, BITSAT, VITEEE, etc.)? If so, your aptitude in physics, chemistry, and mathematics problem solving will be tested. JEE is considered to be one of the toughest exams, as the question paper pattern are totally unpredictable. But if you are determined and have prepared well then don’t worry, as hard work is always paid off.
As Mahatma Gandhi once said, “The future depends on what you do today.” Here are some tips by MyEntranceExam for you.
Prepare for Entrance Exams like a pro!
- Make your own notes: Entrance exams questions are designed in such a way that tests a student’s ability to solve problems based on concepts. You can start with NCERT, which is quite enough, but if you strive higher you can refer to several reference books. When you study from your hand notes you tend to remember and understand more precisely.
- Work on your concepts: Mugging up and jotting down things is easy but a sleazy practice. When you understand a concept, you remember it well and thus your problem solving ability becomes more refined.
- Practice by solving previous year question papers: Even though paper patterns are unpredictable, if you practice you not only learn to manage your time, but also learn smart ways to answer questions. There is a saying the best way to learn is from experience. Solve as many as mock tests, sample papers, and previous year question papers.
- Manage your Time: Time management is not only a necessity in exam hall, but even in daily life. Manage your time during the learning phase and revising phase. When your work is on time, your efforts will bring you closer to your target.
- Have a daily target: Time tables are often not followed. If you make a daily target and fulfil it and bring it to habit, your hard work tactics become smart and more efficient.
- Have a healthy diet: A happy stomach leads to peace of mind. Include healthy meals to your eating practice and drink a good amount of water. When your mind is at peace, understanding and learning becomes easier.
- Take breaks: It is good to have an ability to sit and study for hours, but your mind needs break. Working without breaks make things pile up and harder to remember. A good break of at least five minutes will help your mind relax and when it does your memory becomes stronger.
- Relax, meditate and do recreational activities: The hours of study are not directly proportional to success, but the minutes of efficient study are. Continuous study gives you stress and tension, meditate or perform any recreational activity to calm you. The calmer you feel the better you learn and become positive.
- Become organised: Don’t procrastinate when your daily goal is set. Rather than delaying and pushing things for future start when you decided to.
- Revise Revision is very important. Refresh all your concepts and avoid picking new topics at “D-Day”. Picking new topics will confuse you and become a hindrance in recalling. Not just that, it will stress you, it is very important to stay calm, positive and relaxed on the day of exam. Revising what you learnt previously will make it easy for you to recall with a stress free persona.
