Number of Applications Dropped for JEE Mains

Number of Applications Dropped for JEE Mains

This year the aspirants sitting for JEE Mains exam may face less completion as the number of applicants has reduced to 11, 48,000, which is far more less than the previous year numbers. CBSE, the nodal body to conduct the exam has confirmed to the reports.

This declining trend has been emerged since four years. Less number of students registers themselves for the prestigious exam. Here are few facts about the number of applications received in recent years:

Year No. of Registrations
2014 13,56,000
2015 13,04,217
2016 12,07,257
2017 11,98,989
2018 11,48,000

 

This trend might be the result of the decision taken by All India Council for Technical Education or AICTE to shut down the colleges with less than 30% new admissions in past five years. The colleges having less than prescribed number of students will either be closed or merged with nearby colleges to improve the quality rather than quantity of technical education. A wise decision indeed.

This has impacted JEE Mains because it is one of the most sought after exam to get into the technical degree colleges and in the institutions of repute.

But this decline in number of application will not impact the decision of CBSE to close the registration window after the deadline and there is the least probability of extension of last date.

A day before exam – tips

Hello Everyone!

I hope you have done the diligent job while preparing for your exams. Despite hard work and all the efforts you have put into your preparation, you might be stressed on the day before your exam. I have seen many aspirants taking too much stress just before the exam and in quest of this they even spoiled their exam and all the true efforts. If you are on the same platform then you are reading the right post.

Let’s not go into the do’s and don’ts. I will tell you some simple hacks to reduce your stress level and perform well on next day.

First of all you should be clear that you are not going to turn this world upside down in one day if you haven’t done this in past few months. Second, the exam will be based on your accumulated knowledge which you have acquired by burning your midnight oil. Third, nothing will come in exam from the things you mugging up a day before exam.

While keeping in mind these three things, let’s plan a wonderful day which will refresh you altogether and energize you just before the exam.

  1. Wake up on time. Take a bath and have an awesome breakfast.
  2. Speak to your parents or loved ones, especially those who motivates you. Avoid talking to people who bring stress in your life, at least today. 
  3. Go for a movie or you can watch one of your favorite on your laptop or PC.
  4. Have healthy lunch. Take a good nap. 
  5. Revise the formulae or important concepts. Don’t pick up a pile of notes to revise, just few important things. Never start any new topic today as it will not going to take you anywhere. 
  6. In evening you can plan for a short outing. Avoid drinking or smoking. Just a visit to nearby calm and beautiful places. Don’t try to do anything adventurous today as it can put you in trouble. 
  7. Take a sound sleep as you are going to rock next day.

All the best!

An Ideal Exam Routine

 

Image result for exam routine

Dear Aspirants!

Sometimes you might be surprised to see that a person comparatively more hardworking and with brilliant track is not able to achieve the desired result as an average student can.  How that average performing student made it possible? Answer lies in three key: smart exam routine, smart work and smart diet. We must accept that normal routine is different from exam routine. This time is quite delicate and a slight negligence can lead you to worst of the results. You should be careful while planning all your routine. We can help you in this with some suggestions:

  1. Food is First: Your food intake directly affects your memory and performance. So, before becoming anything, develop healthy eating habits. Take vitamin C, B12 and D etc. to enhance the capacity of your brain and nervous system. It will help you to cope up the ever increasing pressure and stress during exam days. Curtail the amount of junk food to almost zero.
  2. Time table: There is a myth among students that their time table should be tight and stringent. It’s not true. There is always a possibility of human errors. Suppose, due to some unavoidable circumstances you couldn’t follow the time table or a part of it. You might be double stressed if it is too stringent. Always keep a margin of time which can be used to compensate such situations. Keep it in such a way that you always get the time to revise what you have done throughout your day. It can be arranged in such a way:
  • Morning: 2 hour sitting>15 minutes break> 2 hour sitting>take a bath& breakfast> 2 hours sitting.
  • Noon: take a nap of 15 minutes> 2 hours sitting> 15 minutes break> 3 hours sitting> now you deserve a break and some recreation for 2 hours.
  • Evening:  Come back watch TV or anything you like for half an hour before dinner> have a healthy and light dinner> 4 hour stretch of revision.

3. Things you should avoid: There are certain things which you should not do during exam time. They can take you in deep trouble.

  • Avoid alcohol or smoking.
  • Don’t waste unnecessary time in social gathering for some time.
  • Don’t plan vacations or holidays as it can affect your studies.
  • Avoid stress. It’s difficult but you can try meditation tricks.
  • Don’t ignore practice papers, mock tests and revision.

Railways Exam (RRB)

Railway Exams: The Ultimate Key For Preparation

 

 

 

We all know that Indian Railways has announced bumper jobs under Government of India. Ministry of Railways is the famous entity which offer best in industry incentives for its employees. In this article we will share the best approach to qualify such exams.

First of all we must know the exam pattern and syllabus for the railway exams . At present Railways Recruitment Board has announced the notification for Group D , Assistant Loco Pilots and Technician exams. We will discuss a common strategy for both the exams as both have common syllabus like every aptitude based exam.

  1. Quantitative Aptitude: This section is most scoring one among all. The best approach to crack this exam is to practice countless MCQs. This will surely make you familiar with different and new question every time, a new concept in itself. You can subscribe for a test series available on www.prepdoor.com or a sectional test package available exclusively for quantitative aptitude. For formulas and conceptual knowledge you can refer any standard book available in market.
  2. Reasoning: If you got the common sense then you can even score 100% in this section. You just have to open your mind and practice as many questions as you can.
  3. General science: NCERT is the best option to crack the tough nut. Study and try to solve questions from class 6th – 10th , NCERT books. You can also study Lucent`s GK for the same. Don’t forget to practice MCQs on the topic.
  4. General Awareness: This is one of the vast subject and cost-benefit ratio is also not that much good. So, without keeping much hopes from this section, try to compensate this from another section which you can handle easily. But never miss on having updates for what is going on in the world around you. 

So, without giving much stress on a particular subject, try to expand the horizon of your knowledge. Specially in general awareness section give emphasis on current affairs as it is clearly mentioned in the syllabus. You can download or buy any good monthly magazine for current affairs and try to cover at least six months current affairs. One thing is most important- practice more and more questions as the questions are likely to be repeated from many other examination question paper.

Good Luck!
