How to Prepare

Make a proper Time Table:

It is very important that you make a time-table and stick to it so, you will have an exact idea of what you are required to study and the time required to prepare for it.

Get concept clarity rather than rote learning:

It is essential that you have a clear idea of the formulas and concepts rather than rote learning of things. While you might require that for memorizing formulas, it is important that you make sure to clear your basic concepts before moving on.

Prepare Notes:

It is very important to make small notes or a comprehensive list of formulas on each topic and chapter covered, which will come in handy at the time of revision. This will require you to be regular with your work but, will surely make things easy at the time of revision.

Revise Class XI and XII concepts:

Make sure that you revise your concepts from the syllabus of classes X and XII before starting anything new, as most of the engineering exams will be for admission to undergraduate courses and so, the syllabi from class XI and XII becomes the testing ground to check students.

Seek guidance:

It is not possible for you to know everything in your syllabus. At least, not at the time of preparation. Sooner or later, you will run into a concept or so, which will give you trouble and then, it is best you seek guidance from an instructor or a teacher. It is necessary that you clear your doubts at regular intervals and don’t prolong things for long. Getting into a good coaching class is nothing to be ashamed of and, a regular coaching class might enable you to avoid erratic roadblocks in your preparation.

Go through aample papers:

Even though, there may be a complete change in the exam pattern or the expected questions altogether,it is important that you practice on the sample and previous years question papers available for the engineering exam you’d be attempting. You will know the existing pattern and have a fair idea of the type of questions to expect in the paper along with the time constraint.

Solve mock tests:

The paper pattern, duration of the paper, and the number of questions to be attempted in the given amount of time, is not something that you will be able to pick up directly on the day of the examination. A Mock Test is meant to examine your abilities as it provides a similar feel of real exams and it also helps in building your speed and overall confidence to face the exam. Furthermore, mocks can improve your performance to get an extra edge in actual exams. Try to build up an Engineering Entrance Exam Test Prep MCQ Question Bank

Practice time management:

Time management can be learned thorough practice and regular test taking. So it is important that you practice it well.

Prepare for negative marking:

You are advised to stay clear of questions that you are absolutely not sure about. But, if you are confused between an option or two from the answers then you can take a chance, in a few questions depending on how strong you think your assumption is.
