Every year lakhs of competitive exam aspirants test their luck by taking a series of entrance exams hoping to succeed in one or the other. The peer pressure of delivering exceptional performance under high expectations of parents and cut-throat competition among candidates is definitely not an easy job to handle.
One such entrance exam for which the engineering aspirants prepare by all their heart is WBJEE. The West Bengal Joint Entrance Examination is highly reputed for getting admissions to various institutes in West Bengal. The level of its reputation can be judged by this fact only that 30% of the total applicants qualify to get admissions under the 104 concerned colleges. Aspirants have the option to apply to government colleges, self-financed private colleges and universities in West Bengal which form part of the participating institutes of WBJEEE.
Agreed that it is not as tough as IIT JEE, but WBJEE also demands the execution of an efficient and effective preparation strategy. Read on the preparation tips to crack WBJEE 2019.
- Know each detail
Unless and until you know the detailed exam pattern, marking scheme, syllabus, important dates and other relevant stuff, you will not be able to concentrate in the right direction. There is a common misconception that preparing for IITJEE automatically ensures that you are all set for the other entrance exams, but that is not the case. You need to minutely identify the specific details of every different exam in every aspect.
- Manage time properly
Preparing a strict time table does not ensure effective preparation. Follow it religiously. Even if you fall back on it any day, clear your backlog in a week. Otherwise, you will get used to procrastination and your exam preparation might suffer. Make a list of long term and short term goals which will help you in your preparation further.
- Solve previous years question papers
If you don’t know how the D-Day is gonna be, you will never be able to fully prepare for it. It is very important to solve previous years question papers and take mock tests in the real test environment to ensure that there are no surprises on the D Day. Also, analyse your test results carefully so that you can improve on your weaknesses.
- Give its due importance to all subjects
Everyone has his/her set of favourites, even in subjects. Focusing over your main subject by devoting maximum time to it leads to the ignorance of other subjects. That is one major reason of failure in entrance exams. Make sure you don’t succumb to this. Whether you like it or not, give equal attention to each of your subjects in order to achieve success.
- Revision is extremely important
Once done is not done for forever. Even the toppers emphasise hard on the importance of revision before any exam. Prepare the revision notes while studying any concept and keep them handy. Write down your mistakes in one notebook and the important questions in another. This will help you a lot during the revision phase.
All the best for WBJEE 2019!
