Avoid Doubtful Questions :
If you get stuck in any particular question, then don’t waste your time trying to solve, leave it and move to the other question. If you attempt a doubtful question and by chance the answer is not correct then you get a negative mark.
Avoid Stress :
If you get stressed then you will mistakes even in the easy questions. Stress can spoil everything and this will reduce the marks.
Some of you get overexcited after reading the question paper and generally do silly mistakes because of the over confidence. Avoid it.
Practice Sample Papers :
Keep practicing the previous year question papers and mock test papers. If you practice mock test daily, then the chances of negative marking in examination will decrease.
Analyse Your Mock Tests Performance :
Analyse the paper after every test, and see that in which topic you are doing mistakes. Again read the topic and try to improve in next mock test.
Be Focused :
While you are solving one question don’t think about any other question which you might have left or want to attempt later.
Avoid answering questions in last few minutes :
Last minute hustle may increase the chances of mistakes and negative marking.
Make a note of your mistakes :
Make a notebook containing your silly mistakes, what went wrong, unnecessary calculations, time spent on solving the question, etc. Revise this notebook every time before a problem solving session or next mock test.
Follow this and your score will definitely improve.

There are multiple articles that focus mainly on the reading strategies, the ways of preparation and the goal is only to clear the exam. But this article is mainly going to focus on the most important thing of all, the mental health of the candidate!
How to improve Mental Strength in Drop Year
Teenagers are known to feel anxious or depressed over the silliest things. When students have a sole dream that is bound to decide their career, a little bit of anxiousness and tension is bound to be present. Mental breakdowns are also common for these students.
The most important thing that the students must understand is that having a trouble-free mind and being happy and relaxed is the key to concentrate and focus on the studies.
Most candidates feel depressed by the fact that they are repeaters and that they are wasting a year of their life. It is OK to take time to achieve the perfect goal that has been already set. People would always try to fool themselves with the notion that they should completely separate and isolate themselves from the rest of the world so that they don’t get distracted.
No one is the exact copy of another person. He perspectives and opinions are going to vary greatly between two individuals. So if one person feels comfortable isolating themselves from the outside world and social interaction and feel like they perform better that way, it is not going to work the same for everyone. If a person has been known to be a “people’s Person” their entire life, isolating themselves will do more harm than good, as they easily get frustrated from being alone.
Sacrifices are important, but the cost must not be the emotional and mental breakdown. It could push the individual away from their goal.
Chilling out with friends is important, relaxation is very imperative after a very serious session of preparation, as it gives time for the mind to process and relax in all way possible. The students often make the mistake of pushing themselves too far out of their comfort zone that they become a burden to themselves.
It is very important for the students to devise a plan which would suit them rather than blindly following what everyone lase follows.
Keeping calm is the only goal here, even when relatives tease and taunt or try to “advice”, or when the test series marks are low. The goal is attainable and the confidence and a calm mind would be the key to success.
Last but not the least, competitive exams aren’t the end of the world and it shouldn’t have a permanent or lasting effect on the students who are attempting them.
The JEE Main 2019 was held in January between 8th Jan-12th Jan 2019. Around 9.5 lac candidates had registered out of which approx. 8.74 lac appeared. The Result of January exam has been announced. However, the Common Rank List for JEE Main 2019 will be available in the first week of May after the declaration of the results of the April exam. The higher of the two scores of candidates who have appeared in either/both JEE Main January and April 2019 will be considered for final ranking of JEE Main 2019. The common rank list will denote the All India and Category ranks of the candidates in addition to the details of the candidates and marks obtained. The JEE Main rank will be the basis for admissions to the NITs, IIITs and GFTIs.
For those who could not do well in the January session need not worry as the April session is another chance for all students who wish to improve their scores. The following points must be kept in mind when taking up the April session of JEE Main 2019.
1. One must NOT repeat the same mistakes committed in January Session of JEE Main. Learning from mistakes is important.
2. Complete your syllabi if not done earlier.
3. Practice questions from Previous Year JEE Main Papers and even from January session of JEE 2019.
4. Use the Gap between your Board Exams to revise and take up Mock Tests on online Mode from reputed source for consistency in preparation.
5. Keep a check on your speed & accuracy as it is also important as to how you solve the paper for a high score.
6. You must have done the Test Analysis of the JEE Paper you took in January and ensure you are confident with each of those questions now.
7. Take help from your Subject Teachers to clear your doubts and speak to them in case of any conceptual doubts or problems which you are unable to solve.
8. Prepare a quick revision plan and categorize the chapters like:
• Easy– generally you can solve any problem from these chapter/topic
• Moderate– you take time to solve but your concepts of these chapters are clear
• Difficult– you have not been able to understand the concepts in these chapter and find questions from these chapters tough
9. While revising ensure you may have to take help from your teachers for the Difficult chapters and get all your concepts cleared as merely devoting time on these chapters may not help. You can join a crash course for these topics.
10. For the Moderate Chapters you will need more practice so devote time daily so that you have completed solving adequate no. of questions from these chapters.
11. For the chapters/Topics you find Easy it is important that you are always able to solve any given question from them. So, you must solve some questions even from these topics but avoid spending too much time on these as you are already good in these chapters.
12. While solving questions keep a check on your time and develop short cuts to avoid lengthy calculations. Use of diagrams/graphs will expedite your answers.
13. Try to remember all important formulae, named reactions as this will add to your speed while solving.
14. Your Speed, Accuracy and Time management will be an important parameter for success in JEE Main (April),2019.
15. Most importantly take care of your physical and mental fitness as there are external factors influencing your performance in the exam.
16. Avoid taking up new books or start any new chapters before the exam as this may spoil your confidence level.
17. Maintain a positive attitude throughout your preparation and remain focused. Staying confident and keeping calm while taking the exam also helps get a desired score.
Remember, it is the relative performance and not just how you have performed on the exam day. So, give in your best shot and you will ace JEE Main.

This exam is the most “sought after” competitive exam for admission to engineering colleges across the country. It is divided into two levels.
JEE Main 2019
Till 2018, this examination was being conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). From 2019 onwards, it will be conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA). This exam is for securing admission in National Institutes of Technology (NIT’s), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIIT’s) etc. The exam notification was published in October 2018 and the exam will be conducted from 6th January 2019 onwards.

JEE Advanced 2019
Students who quality in JEE mains are only eligible to appear in JEE Advanced exam, which is the key to secure seats in the premier Engineering Institutes of the Country, Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT’s).
JEE Advanced 2019 will be held in CBT mode only on May 19, 2019. The Paper 1 will be in the morning session and Paper 2 in the afternoon session. IIT Roorkee is in charge of organising this exam in 2019.
This exam is based on the understanding of the science and engineering courses taught in undergraduate level along with the analysis of the student’s English and aptitude skills. The scores are used for admission to PG courses like M.E, M.Tech and various Ph.D programmes in IIT’s. GATE 2019 is scheduled on Feb 2, 3, 9 and 10 across all the centres in the country and is going to be conducted by IIT Madras.

So, cracking the above entrance examinations with good scores will help the students across the country to secure Engineering and various Science course seats in the prestigious institutes of the country.
There is hardly time left, there should be no delaying further. Pull up your socks because the race is about to begin. Focus and study hard, work on time management and practise more questions for better performance on the D-day.
A quick glance at the opening and closing ranks of the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE Advanced) at the top IITs and NITs in the past few years shows that candidates do have a positive bias towards B.Tech computer science.
The opening and closing ranks (gender neutral) for computer science at IIT, Bombay, this academic year were 1 and 59; 3 and 100 at IIT, Delhi; 51 and 200 at IIT, Madras; 92 and 272 at IIT, Kharagpur; 103 and 213 at IIT, Kanpur; 278 and 416 at IIT, Roorkee; and 333 and 554 at IIT, Guwahati.
At the same time, the opening rank for JEE (Mains) for outside students at NITs in Surathkal and Tiruchirappalli was 278 and 338 and 3,382 for home students at the NIT, Calicut. (In all NITs 50% of the seats are allotted to students of the home State).
However, the opening and closing marks considered at the International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad, were 340 and 260 out of 360 in the JEE (Mains).
Why the top ranking students choose computer science over other disciplines have many factors, including the possibility of better placements. The average annual salary offered for computer science students at the NIT-C, ranked 50th in the engineering colleges category at the national level, was ₹12.5 lakh.
Three students were offered the highest salary of ₹40 lakh and three others ₹33 lakh, all by multinational companies.
T.K. Suresh Babu, head of the NIT-C Training and Placement Cell for 2017-18, said computer science provided challenging opportunities including app development.
Besides, the training period during the post-hiring period is less for computer science graduates when compared to the other engineering streams. Working with multinational companies and the prospects of going abroad also attract the students, he said.
Incidentally, the Analytics Special Interest Group set up by NASSCOM has predicated that there could be a shortage of around 2,00,000 data scientists in India in the next few years.
However, employability factor has also been the biggest issue for companies since data analysts are drawn from different fields, including mathematics, information science, and computer science.
Sanjay Sharma, an IITian and a faculty at a JEE coaching institute, says engineering aspirants choose computer science because of the good departments at the IITs, especially Bombay and Kharagpur. “But many candidates have wrong notions that computer science is an easy branch when compared to the other B.Tech. courses. Many have been compelled to go for extra tuition. Besides, students at IITs face a tough syllabus than their counterparts at the NIT,” he said.
