Mistakes You Should Avoid In Your JEE Preparation

Are you one of those students who has been told that IIT JEE is next to impossible to crack?

 DSC_0027

That it takes years of dedication and exceptional intelligence to crack it? Well nothing could be more wrong and far from the truth. IIT JEE is an exam that can be cracked with the right strategy and Students put in 2 years of tremendous effort to make their ultimate dream of securing a remarkable AIR in JEE exam into a reality. Preparation for this prestigious exam requires meticulous planning and is painstaking.. Hereby in this article we have compiled a list of mistakes that you should avoid during your JEE preparation.

Taking class XI lightly can cost you bigA lot of people pay no attention to class XI syllabus. They might pay a heavy price for this at later stages if they do so. Class XI syllabus lays the foundation for class XII. If your base is weak, there are high chances you won’t get the topics of XII subjects with that ease. So, the conclusion is to take class XI syllabus seriously.

Ignoring NCERT can be a cardinal sin:  Books by NCERT should be the first choice for all candidates who are aspiring for IIT-JEE. Students should focus on clearing concepts rather than memorizing them. JEE, as we all are aware, is an analytical paper which tests your understanding of concepts in subjects Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. So, it is advised do not overlook NCERT topics as they are extremely crucial. Refrain from mugging up concepts.

Spending time on simple topics during revision: In all honesty, topics like complex numbers, matrices, determinants, etc. do not require much revising. The best thing to do is to keep a formula/revision sheet with the major concepts of these topics written on it. Revise this sheet, instead of going for the book time and again.

Over-confidence or under-confidence can ruin your prep: A fine line separates confidence, over-confidence & under-confidence. Students have to make sure they aren’t over-confident about their preparation as it might result in underestimating your competitors. Becoming under-confident will lose motivation. Hence, just be confident and keep practising at your own pace.

Attempting questions with negative marking: You must have surely heard of the negative marking in JEE paper. If you think attempting all questions will win you the battle then you’re wrong. If you aren’t sure of a question, do not attempt it. A lot of students mark all the answers trying their luck. In this way, both the scores as well as results are affected. So, it is advisable not to attempt all questions unless you’re very sure.

JEE Main 2019: This study plan will help you get a good rank

DSC_0020This year, the HRD ministry has announced that JEE will be conducted in two sessions in a year. Students will be able to choose the date of their exam for either one, or both sessions.

Over the years, there have been plenty of articles giving tips and tricks to crack one of the most competitive exams in the world — JEE. Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main and Advanced are the gateways to the top engineering institutes in this country, including IITs and NITs. Some students start preparing for JEE after Class 8, however, most begin after Class 10. By the time they step into 12th standard, they have already completed most of their portion. They start gearing up for the JEE by attempting numerous mock tests and solving previous year question papers.

This year, the HRD ministry has announced that JEE will be conducted in two sessions in a year. Students will be able to choose the date of their exam for either one or both sessions. The first session will be held in January, and the second session will be held in April. Both exams will be held in the computer-based mode.

This new mode of testing can become a little overwhelming and challenging, especially for rural children. Last year, students had the option to take the exam either in the pen and paper mode or the computer-based mode. Of the 11 lakh students who registered for the exam, approximately only two lakh opted for the pen and paper mode. This is because a large percentage of the youth does not have any access to computers.

IIMs, IITs to be roped in for accreditation of educational institutes

iit

Highlights:

  • Education based on learning outcomes
  • Accreditation parameter depend on the quality of education
  • IITs, IIMs Come together& create agency for accreditation.

HRD Minister Shri Prakash Javadekar said that an institute which maintains quality will only survive and those who fail to do so will be out of business. IITs and IIMs will be roped in for the speedy assessment and accreditation of higher educational institutes along with official agencies such as NAAC and NBA, Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Prakash Javadekar said on Saturday.

While the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) will be expanded, the premier Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) could also join hands and form an accreditation agency to expedite the process, he said. At present, only 15 per cent of the higher educational institutes in the country are accredited.

“We have asked IITs and IIMs to come together and create an agency which we can use to expedite the process of accreditation,” the minister told reporters on the sidelines of the 4th World Summit of Accreditation here.

He said accreditation from now onwards will be based on “learning outcome” and quality of education should be the key parameter for determining the standard of an institute. The minister’s comments came against the backdrop of the University Grants Commission (UGC) in August clearing a proposal to allow more accreditation agencies to come into the sphere of accreditation to enhance the existing capacity. Speaking at the event, the minister said 80 per cent of the weightage for accreditation will be given on learning outcome and peer reviews, while the physical verification of the campus and infrastructure could be done through the use of satellites.

“An institute which maintains quality will only survive and those who fail to do so will be out of business,” he said. Higher Education Secretary R Subramanyam suggested that “no accreditation, no admission” should be taken up as a policy initiative from 2022-23 onward in keeping with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of a “New India”.

Meanwhile, speaking at a panel discussion on International Literacy Day, the minister said the government would be rolling out a scheme where school students can engage themselves in the literacy mission and provide education to people who are illiterates. Illiteracy should be eliminated in four-five years.

NTA Proposed JEE (MAIN) Merit List Based On Percentile Score

nta

Highlights

  • The merit list for admission to engineering colleges via JEE (Mains) will be based on percentile scores and not raw marks
  • JEE (Main) is the qualifying examination for those intending to sit for JEE (Advanced) for admission to IITs
  • From 2019, a JEE-Main aspirant will also, for the first time , have the choice of taking the test

NEW DELHI: The merit list for admission to engineering colleges, including Indian Institutes of Technology, through the Joint Entrance Examination – Main (JEE-Main) will be based on percentile scores and not raw marks aspirants scored in the test with the introduction of a two-cycle computer-based examination system from 2019.
JEE (Main) is the qualifying examination for those intending to sit for JEE (Advanced) for admission to IITs. As the formats for engineering and architecture courses have changed with tests to be held in January and April, the National Testing Agency (NTA) announced a new procedure for arriving at the NTA score, which will be the basis of the final merit list for admissions to IITs.
A senior official of the HRD ministry said the “normalisation procedure based on percentile score” to arrive at the NTA score has been based on the format in practice for the undergraduate-MBBS test conducted by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Delhi.

“A core group of experts from IITs (Roorkee, Kanpur, Delhi,  among others have been asked to finalise the process for calculating the NTA score,” said the official. From 2019, a JEE-Main aspirant will for the first time have  the choice of taking the test twice (January and April cycle The format will see the test being conducted over a periodof around 14 days in each cycle with multiple sessions each  day, a device that is intended to significantly reduce the prospects of cheating and manipulation.

Explaining the format, an NTA official said, “Candidates will get different sets of questions per session and though efforts will be made to maintain equivalence among various question papers the difficulty level of question papers in different session . may not exactly be same.” However, the percentile score of each session is based on the relative performance of students in that particular shift. So the percentile  scores of each session will be considered at par.

This, the official said, could be as some candidates may end up attempting a relatively tougher set of questions and are  likely to get lower marks. But to ensure a level playing field, ‘normalisation procedure based on percentile score’ will be used so that candidates are neither benefitted or disadvantaged due to the difficulty level of the examination.

The NTA score will be calculated in multiple steps. Each session will have its NTA percentile score. This means the topper (highest scorer) of each session gets the same percentile of 100 and marks obtained in between highest and lowest scores are converted into appropriate percentiles. Then, apart from the overall percentile, subject-wise (mathematics, physics and chemistry) percentile scores will also be calculated. In order to avoid a bunching effect and  reduce tied scores, the percentile scores will be calculated up to seven decimal places.

Finally, all percentile scores of different sessions will be merged in one list and the overall merit and ranking will be based on percentile score in descending order. In case of two or more candidates obtaining equal percentile, the “inter-se (among themselves)” merit will be decided in order of candidates obtaining higher percentile score in mathematics, followed by physics, chemistry and finally the candidate older in age. If there is a tie even after this, the candidates will be conferred joint rank.

The whole process, the NTA official said, is divided into three steps — distribution of examinees in the sessions randomly so that each session gets approximately equal number of candidates, preparation of results for each number of candidates, preparation of results for each session and finally compilation of the NTA score and preparation of the overall merit/rank list.
