When it comes to appearing for engineering entrance exams, it becomes a little difficult for students to plan their preparation strategy. Most of the engineering entrance exams take place in the month of April, which is right after the board exams. While there are some students who can handle both entrance exams and boards successfully, there are some who find this scenario extremely challenging. In such cases, it is imperative that students first devise the right and effective preparation strategy and ensure its correct execution. In here, we have some important tips that students may use to boost their study plan.
Proper Time Table
It is very important that candidates make a timetable and follow it regularly for the preparation of SRMJEEE exam. By creating a timetable, candidates will have an exact idea of what they are required to study and the time required for it. Students can also plan short breaks in between their schedule to keep the routine systematic and break the monotony of studying.
Know Exam Pattern & Syllabus
It is extremely crucial to be completely aware of the exam syllabus and paper pattern prior to commencing the exam preparation. By getting a comprehensive understanding of these two things, half the job is done as candidates would know what all topics they have to cover to complete the syllabus, and what all measures they have to take while appearing for the exam.
Clarity of concepts may be one of the most underrated pointers when it comes to preparing for exams. But it could really help boost aspirants' exam preparation and help them score well in the examination. It is, therefore, essential to have a good understanding of all the important concepts to have the best results on exam day.
It is very important to make small notes or a comprehensive list of formulas on each covered topic and chapter, which will help at the time of revision. Preparing notes will make candidates' lives a lot easier during revision. With the help of notes, it will not take too much time to revise the syllabus again.
Revision of Class XI & XII Basic Concepts
Aspirants should have complete clarity of the basic concepts from Class 10 and 12 syllabus. Most of the undergraduate engineering exams require candidates to be thorough with the 10+2 syllabus. This is exactly why parents and teachers insist on studying properly in school as those are the foundation years of a student that can make or break his/her career.
During exam preparation, there are times when candidates run into a concept that they don't understand or pick up easily. In such a scenario, it is best to seek guidance from an instructor or a teacher. Students must clear their doubts at regular intervals and don’t prolong things. Getting into a good coaching class is also a good idea as it will enable them to avoid roadblocks in their preparation.
Sample papers are one of the most important tools during exam preparation. They are easily available at bookstores and stationaries. Even if there is a small change in the exam pattern, sample papers and previous years' question papers at least give candidates a fair idea of what kind of questions to expect in the exam, time limit and marks allocated per question.
There are many websites that offer free online mock tests for students preparing for competitive exams. A Mock Test is an effective tool to test a student’s abilities as it not only provides a similar feel of real exams but also helps in building speed and confidence to face the actual exam.
