Tips For JEE Aspirants: How to Utilise Diwali Vacations.

The time is even more important for senior students who aspire to take on competitive exams like JEE Main and Advanced, BITSAT or the likes of NTSE and KVPY. Although it is true that these exams require continuous practice and cannot be conquered in a few days, these vacations offer a golden opportunity to strategies your preparation. As these exams have millions of test takers and a very less success probability, it mandates a sound test taking temperament.

Here are a few suggestions for serious JEE/ BITSAT/ NTSE/ KVPY aspirants which they can follow to utilize their holiday time optimally.

  • Devote few hours to core subjects: For students pursuing science or high scholars aiming for NTSE, science and math are very important and thus their core subjects. Thus, it is very important for students to devote an hour per subject. This does not necessarily need to be reading books or practicing questions. A lot of educational videos and tutorials are present online which can be referred for better understanding the concepts.
  • Balance time between the subjects: As most of the competitive exams have sectional cutoffs, it is important for learners to divide time evenly between these subjects to ensure uniform concept strengthening in each.
  • Focus more on concept tests: As students have not completed their syllabus for the exams, there is no point in rehearsing the exams. Rather, this time should be used to build concepts and students should focus more on concept tests.
  • Track your preparation level and strengths: Being systematic in approach requires being aware of one’s strengths and weaknesses which can be done easily by introspection. During the long break, students can easily track their strengths and weaknesses by merely practicing and taking a note of concepts where they are faltering regularly.
  • Make SMART goals and set deadlines : It is very important for the students to get a nerve of the whole syllabus and chalk out a strategy. The goals should be Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time Bound. If a student understands his core strengths, he/she can easily set realistic goals and then set timelines for their achievement.
  • Devote time to hobby and interests as well: However, a student should also make sure to utilize the time for recreation as well. 

Following this checklist is not very difficult but it requires discipline to sustain the routine. Though the results may not be evident quickly, the practice will pay off with strong concepts and eventually better performance in exams.

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.

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.

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.
