How to Prepare

Preparation Strategy

Make a proper Time Table

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

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 for the papers. While you might require it for memorizing formulas it is

important that for other stuff you make sure you clear your basics and concepts before

moving on.

Prepare Notes

It is very important make small notes or a comprehensive list of formulas on each covered

topic and chapter 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.

Revision of Class XI and XII basic concepts

Make sure that you revise the basic concepts from the syllabus of these classes 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


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 off and if anything a regular coaching class will enable you to avoid

roadblocks in your preparation.

Sample 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.

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 you will be able to pick up on the day of the examination.

A Mock Test tests a student’s abilities as it not only provides a similar feel of real exams but

also helps in building speed and confident to face the exam. Furthermore, they can improve

their performance to get an extra edge in actual exams. Try to build up an Engineering Entrance

Time management

Time management can be learnt through thorough practice and regular test taking. So it is

important that you practice it and practice it well.

Negative marking

Most the entrance examinations will have negative marking and everyone would suggest you

stay clear of questions are not sure about. But some experts are of the opinion that you answer

the questions in which you are confused between an option or two because there will also be a

chance of getting it right.
