When it comes to the preparation of any examinations, it…
Science has always been a stream sought by in the Indian education system and once a student takes maths as his/her subject, engineering is usually the next step they have in their mind. And they have a good reason to think so, India is the largest producer of engineers every year. But this fact has a dark side to it, various studies have shown that most of these engineers are not worth employing which means that it is important that you get into the best college in the field of your choice if you want to have success in the easier way. The only way to get into one of the top colleges of the nation is by preparing yourself for one of the various B.tech entrance exams that are held for them. But thinking about preparing oneself is just one step on the way, here are some of the tips that will help you in being your best for this highly competitive field.
Time is one of the most crucial aspects when it comes to preparation for B.tech entrance exams. No matter whether you start preparing after class 10th or taking a drop after class 12th, you will always feel short of time for preparation. So, maintaining the time that you have in your hand is very important. Figuring out how much time you need to study a particular topic based on the weightage that topic has in the exam, maintaining a time system for when you start your preparation for board exams without compromising your preparation for the B.tech entrance exam, all of these play a crucial role in determining the final outcome of the efforts you put in.
While planning out a schedule for a year or three is important, it is also vital that you accomplish a minimum goal on a daily basis, to avoid excess work left for later on. The best way to do this is by having a time table, your own which you can create in such a way that you allow your entire day to it, all the activities you do, in order to take the maximum time out of the day for studying and preparation. Remember, Everyone only has 24 hours in a day, the thing that puts you ahead or behind others is how you consume the hours you have.
For good or bad, coaching classes have become a vital part in the preparation for any sort of examination, especially the ones such as B.tech, where over 12 lakh students sit every year to try and get past the others in the race to a nice college. While self-study is very important, it is also important to clear all the doubts you might have, which is possible through coaching classes dedicated to preparing you for the B.tech exam. You can either join local coaching in your city or go to one of the many nationwide recognized names such as Allen, resonance, vibrant to name a few, as the entire city of Kota in Rajasthan is dedicated to such coachings. With these offline coachings, not everyone can go to Kota, so you can use online platforms, apps that provide you with the study material of these coaching, or customized material based on what platform you choose. This helps you in preparing yourself in many ways.
Group study is a very tricky business to deal with. While group study allows you to clear a lot of your doubts, it can even lead to you wasting a lot of time in chatter. So, it is also vital that when choosing your buddies for the group study you choose the ones who are serious about studying, like the toppers of your group and prefer spending more time with them as you can learn a thing or two about how you can improve yourself in your preparation and waste less time in chatter and fun.
One of the hardest things that every student who prepares for an exam like B.tech entrance faces is the urge to control themselves from distractions. Preparation for an exam of such high competition is extremely stressful and you will find the urge to blow off some steam, but this can become a habit really quickly, one that can set you off track from your goal. Even the use of a smart-phone is a strict no during your preparation phase and instead, you should keep a non-smartphone to have a social media distancing. You should keep yourself focused on the one goal of performing well in the exam.
While preparing for B.tech exam one of the things that you will realize very early is that there is no very defined course to it. While CBSE and National Test Agency (NTA) do give a brief about the topics to cover, they don’t specify exactly how deep you need to go in those topics which means that you don’t have an end to your syllabus. But it is important that while studying you don’t dive too deep into any topic, you are not doing a Ph.D. So, it is important that you study it in an exam-focused manner and always have time to revise what you learn so you are perfect at what you learn instead of trying to learn everything there is.
Examination is a very high-pressure situation to be in, especially one that you prepare for with a lot of hard work and dedication. Students often panic in the exam hall and while there is no fool-proof way to ensure that one doesn’t panic in the exam hall, one can surely become a little bit used to the pressure and environment by giving tests under conditions that they might face in their real exams. This will allow you to have a little more control over your nerves.
With all the stress, hard work, and constant studying, students often forget to take care of their health, leading them to fall sick which serves as a big hamper in their preparation. So, while following everything on the list, it is important that you eat healthily and take out some time for exercise from your routine to maintain a healthy body, as a healthy body houses a healthy mind.
With this, we wish you all the best for your exams and hope you perform great.
