Tips to Score 40+ Marks in WBJEE Physics 2022

"Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day-in, and day-out". The quote fits like a glove for all the students who want success on the grounds of any state-level entrance examinations. Thus, with hard work success can be achieved easily. However, only hard work cannot fetch you the desired success, for this, you need to do smart study.

The article is focused on the tips for WBJEE 2022 examination. WBJEE is a state-level examination for the Beech students who are attempting to take admissions in the WBJEE participating institutions with 1 lakh+ student participating in it to taste success.

Constructing and Executing a Study Plan

By making a study plan and executing it properly with the right allocation of time for each topic will make your study procedure more planned and reconcilable. The most important thing that is to be kept in mind is that you will have to mix up the subjects and engage in extracurricular activities to freshen up your mind so that you do not feel monotonous.

Be Amicable with your Syllabus

Before starting with your preparation, the first thing that needs to be noted is the analysis of the syllabus so that there is an idea of where the questions are to be asked. Being amicable with the syllabus yields greater advantages.

Skilling in the Management of Time

Time management is an important element for any examination. Since only 2 hours are allotted to you for each paper, you need to be very smart in answering the questions.

Solving Previous Year's Questions and Sample Papers

As discussed earlier, for proper time management you need to sit for mock tests. If there is a practice in solving the WBJEE sample papers, previous years’ questions attempting mock tests, will make you efficient in studying the exam pattern. Attempting these papers will make you rectify and highlight the wrong that you have done.

Preparation of Notes

Preparation and following your written notes can be beneficial. In case of any doubt, write it down and revise it until you are clear with the idea.

Persistently Revise & Revise

The formulas should be there at your fingertips and revision of the previously learned topics according to the weekly made schedule will make you remember them and never forget.

With a Healthy Body Comes Healthy Success- Stress levels should be lowered and 8 hours of sleep with a proper diet should be maintained. Short breaks should be given in between the study sessions.

The West Bengal Joint Entrance Examinations were established on 2nd March 1962 under article 162 of the constitution of India, by the government of West Bengal. It is monitored by the state government for carrying out the admission procedures in engineering institutions and other self-financing institutions in West Bengal. It is carried out once every year in the state. It is hinged on the online application and e-counselling process later in 2012.
