5 Reasons Why You Should Take The JEE Main 2019 April Exam

jee main 2019

National Testing Agency (NTA) has given the candidates one of the best possible advantages. The engineering candidates who wish to take admission in the NITs, CFTI, and IIITs or even the IITs, have 2 shots to crack the JEE Main exam from now on. You did not do good in January attempt? You have another chance to improve the marks.

The registrations for JEE Main April 2019 is starting from February 08, 2019. The last date to apply is March 07, 2019. The April attempt will be held between 06 – 20, 2019. There will be two papers in the exam – Paper 1 (B.E./B.Tech.) and Paper 2 (B.Arch/B.Plan). The paper 2 will have 3 parts, out of which the Part3 (drawing section) will be held in offline mode.

Here are a few reasons that support why you should appear in the JEE Main 2019 April Exam, even if you have scored well in the January Exam.

#1 In the second attempt, there is probability to score more: Since the candidates who have appeared in the January exam have a hold over the exam pattern, type of questions, the difficulty level, the weightage of the subjects in the paper; the chances to perform even better in the April exam increases.

#2 Study Materials Handy: the preparation resources like the question papers and answer keys from the recent exam is available with you. You can utilize the same to prepare for the April exam. It becomes easier to know what to expect out of the second exam as they already have the experience of the January exam.

#3 You know your strength and weakness now: Since you have appeared in the real exam environment you know where you are lacking – Is it speed? Is it accuracy? or is it some other factor. You know it all by now. Thus, you can just work on those points and score even better in the second attempt.

#4 In the April attempt, there will be no major difference: The difficulty level and the exam pattern is not going to change in the second attempt for sure. Therefore the candidates who have attempted the exam in January month can take full advantage of what they have grasped from the first attempt and how can they transform the same into their advantage.

#5 A chance to learn from your mistakes and score better: This is a golden opportunity that the candidates can utilize. They know where they have failed in the first attempt and what had led to any bad score. Also, the candidates who have scored well, they can analyze what can be done to score even better.

Thus, if you have scored really well in the first attempt and are thinking to skip the second attempt – rethink!

There is no harm in taking another attempt, on the other hand, you have the scope of improvement. NTA will take the best score out of both the attempts to prepare the final merit list. Thus, even if you fear to score badly in the second attempt there is no harm. The better score will be taken into consideration.

JEE Main 2019 – How to Improve your Performance in April Session

jee-main-2019

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.

All Important Information about Engineering Entrance Exams 2019

Engineering Exam Important Dates
The budding engineering aspirants are bracing themselves up for the entrance exams for the upcoming academic session 2019 – 2020. All the formalities regarding the application processes have been wrapped up. The exams cover the portions which the students have studied in their 11th, +2 and graduation courses.

The candidates who aim for admission in the top notch Engineering Institutes of the country need to crack these all India entrance exams with good scores. AICTE emphasis on books written by Indian authors whereas UGC emphasis on conceptual learning and development.

Here, we are trying to cover all the necessary information related to Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) (both Mains and Advanced), Graduate Aptitude Test Engineering (GATE) and IIT Joint Admission test for M.Sc., (IIT – JAM) of 2019.

The exam details are as follows:
JEE 2019
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. The paper 1 Exam will be held in Online Computer Based Test (CBT) mode from January 6th – January 20th 2019 in shifts. Paper 2 exam will be held in pen and paper mode on January 8th, 2019, only in one shift. The exam centres have been allotted to the registered candidates and admit cards will be published on December 17th, 2018.

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.

GATE 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. The admit cards will be issued to all eligible students on Jan 4, 2019 on the official website of GATE 2019.

IIT JAM 2019
This exam is an entrance to pursue M.Sc courses, at IIT’s, IISc  Bangalore, IISER’s & NIT’s. This year IIT Kharagpur will conduct IIT JAM 2019 on February 10, 2019 in two sessions on the same day. The exam is in CBT mode and duration of the exam is 3 hours. The admit cards will be issued on the official website from January 4, 2019 onwards.

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.

Many Engineering Hopefuls To Choose Computer Science

Computer science is the most favoured choice of engineering course aspirants at the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and National Institutes of Technology (NITs)
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).

Better avenues

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.

Employability factor

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.
Good Luck Aspirants !

Parenting – An art in today’s highly Distractive & Competitive Era!

Early & Late adolescence can be a tricky time for both Parents as well as Students. It usually involves a bundle of mood swings, the pressure to perform in class, stress and other peer problems. Thus it becomes the sole responsibility of parents to keep them motivated and expose them to a more fascinating world of Science & Maths, inducing them to visualize and dream about the career opportunities after their Higher Secondary.

#Venper Academy lists the below key tasks to be adopted as a Parent!

Maintain a positive attitude @ home.
One of the best ways to motivate your child is imparting positive thinking in them. If your child has a positive attitude towards things, they are likely to be motivated to do better. Positive thinking also improves one’s self-confidence which is highly beneficial for their career. Studies show that, an active participation of Students in Sports cultivates a positive spirit.

Inculcate a competitive spirit
Competition is healthy for students and motivates them to do better. By teaching your children the importance of having a competitive spirit, it will help them to show the best version of themselves. Apart from this, regular test sessions also help students in keeping their competitive spirit high.

Reward him for their performance
Winning a scholarship is one of the best confidence boosters for students. Every parent should motivate their child to appear for scholarship examinations. Make sure your ward appears for Venper Aptitude Test (VAT) on November 25th across any of the 15 Learning centres of Venper Academy in Tamilnadu. The benefits of winning a scholarship will instill a sense of accomplishment in students.

Take up a Personal Counselling session
We at #Venper Academy believe that Personal Counselling is really important to improve the performance of any student, as every student is a case study in itself. Every student has his/her strengths and weaknesses and needs to be polished according to that. A personal Counselling session @ Venper Academy is not just one more interaction, a life changing one!

COUNSELLING-We add Value & Purpose to each letter of the word as,

C-Caring
E-Exclusive
O-One to one interaction
L-Leading
U-Unique
I-Initiative
N-Navigation
G-Guidance
S-Self Realisation

Thus we ultimately we make a tailor made plan as per their school and batch schedule which is important for the student to make his/her self study plan and stick to it for best results.

Maintain a respectful relationship with your child
Building an open and respectful relationship with your child is essential. Try to understand and solve their problems. Never force your child to choose a career they have no interest in, it will backfire in the future.  Rather you should focus on their strengths and push them in that direction. It is now time for parents to start focusing on their child’s strength instead of pushing them to do something opposite.

Punishing and threatening can demotivate your child. It can lead to frustration in your kid. Be on your kid’s side and motivate them to do better every day.

Happy Parenting!

How to Score 180 in JEE Mains 2019 in 75 Days

With the #JEEMains Phase 1 scheduled for Jan 6th 2019, #VenperAcademy wants to share a few strategies to optimise your scores in the next 75days!!

Chemistry is the scoring subject of JEE Mains alike Biology in NEET. 80 out of 120 is quite possible if you master your NCERT followed by a practise of 75-100 MCQs, which should be a combination of Previous Year Questions & Probable Questions alike in Venper’s JEE Test Series.

When it comes to Physics, picking on the relatively easy chapters would be a smart move. Kinematics, Unit & dimensions, Work power Energy & Laws of motion would cover a minimum of 20 marks. Focussing on Modern Physics for Mains would fetch us easily 8-12 marks.

Learn how to solve circuit questions from Current Electricity (12 marks weightage, where atleast 8marks is possible) which is interesting and at JEE mains level they are relatively easy also.  Another 16 marks (4 questions) are usually extremely easy which everyone can solve with the knowledge of their boards as they are usually Theory based. This makes out your total of minimum 56 marks of physics.

When it comes to Mathematics, completing Coordinate Geometry is easy and totally formula based. It has a weightage of 20 marks so that you can make atleast 12 marks for sure. We may focus on the following chapters like Sequence & Series, Mathematical reasoning, Differential equation, Binomial theorem, Sets relation and function, Differential calculus, Quadratic equation & Trigonometry thus fetching atleast 24 marks.

Permutation & Combination plus Questions on Probability many of the times comes easy in JEE Mains. Atleast 8 marks in the Mathematics Paper are easy which is achievable from the board knowledge. Thus it makes around 44 marks in Mathematics.

This makes out a total of minimum 80+56+44 = 180.

We have not touched many topics, but atleast we have to learn all the formulas from those chapters and some of their application, so that you won’t miss out on the easy questions from them.

Another tip is to learn as to how to solve 90 questions in 3 hours by attempting papers regularly as ultimately it’s your Time management skills and confidence on yourself which decides your output on the Big Day!

Venper Academy JEE Mains Extended Short term course for January & April attempt offers a focussed coaching module with importance to the high mark weightage chapters & regular Faculty assisted Worksheet practise with a promising ouput of 200+ in JEE Mains!

Good luck aspirants!

Chapter Based Tips for NEET Physics 2019

As a continuation to our previous Blog on #PhysicsNumericals, Department of Physics, #VenperAcademy wants to enlighten the students on the nuances of preparation for #NEETPhysics 2019.

After an in depth analysis, the very important must know Chapter based tips are as follows,

In the case of Kinematics which can have a 3-5% weightage, a NEET aspirant

  • Must be very clear with concepts like Displacement, Acceleration, Average Velocity & Relative velocity. Try to visualize the problems in the mind to effectively tackle them.
  • In projectiles finding Range, Maximum height, Time of flight, velocity at any point on the trajectory is important. Generally in this area questions are straight and fair.
  • Questions based on graphical data are also important.

When it comes to Laws of Motion carrying a 3-5% weightage,

  • Practice the conceptual questions based on Laws of Motion and application of the principle of conservation of linear momentum. While working out problems related to connected bodies, students should necessarily draw free body diagram.
  • The concept of finding velocity of the colliding bodies in one dimensional elastic head on collision is important.

 In the chapter of Work Power Energy having a 4-5% weightage, Theorems are the main subtopics. Sometimes it is advantageous to do the problem using law of energy. 

In Motion of System of Particles and Rigid Body (5%) the,

  • Questions on vertical circular motion are the expected models.
  • Problems of finding Torque, when position vector and force vector are given are also important.
  • Finding Moment of inertia of regular bodies using parallel and perpendicular axes theorem are important.
  • Also, work out problems based on conservation of angular momentum and rolling motion.

 Gravitation is a relatively an easier chapter with 2% weightage

  • Be clear with basic forces in nature. Simple question on Universal law of gravitation, variation of ‘g’ with altitude, depth, latitude are important.
  • Problem solving technique using energy conservation helps arrive at the answers.
  • Problem on orbital velocity, escape velocity are very important.

 In the chapter of Properties of Bulk Matter with 2% weightage,

  • The advantage with elasticity is limited sub-topics & limited models of problems. The main concepts are with stress, strain related modulus of elasticity and Poisson’s ratio. To answer theory bits, concepts like elastic fatigue & behavior of wire under increasing load must be understood.
  • Examples of surface tension from daily life, surface energy, relation between surface tension and surface energy, angle of contact & capillarity must be mastered. Effect of temperature on surface tension, excess pressure in soap bubble and liquid drop are topics from which we can expect questions. Problems like finding work done to split big drop into number of droplets, work done to blow a soap bubble are important.
  • Try to be thorough with fluid mechanics as it is inter-related to many other topics in physics.
  • Problems based on Bernoulli’s theorem, velocity of efflux are more important.

 Thermodynamics is quite an important topic to be focused with close to 9-10% of mark weightage. Request the aspirants to,

  • Have a clear idea of zeroth law of thermodynamics, Joules law, and the first law of thermodynamics. Principle of calorimeter, problems related to different thermodynamic processes are important. While solving the problems related to work done in adiabatic and isothermal, keep in mind the sign conventions.
  • Do some models on Carnot engine – Efficiency and Coefficient of performance.
  • Be thorough with the concepts on Kinetic theory of gasses.

Kinetic theory of gases is a simple and easy topic with 3% weightage in which conceptual questions can be practiced.

Oscillations and waves (3%) is an interesting chapter where students should understand the term phase and its importance in solving problems. They should know the,

  • Different relations for Velocity & Acceleration. The maximum and minimum values are to be remembered.
  • To solve problems related to loaded spring, students should have clear idea of spring constant, changes in the time period, when it is cut and coupled with other springs.
  • Try to work out more numerical on Doppler effect and pipes

In Optics, Wave optics may be covered first as the content is less compared to Geometrical Optics. Regarding wave optics concentrate on theory based questions.

Theory based questions will be asked from the chapters like Modern physics, Semiconductor devices & the Communication systems. #TamilnaduStateBoard students have an added advantage as their Board exam preparation supports them well for the same.
Another common area is Gravitation, Electrostatics and Magnetism with same principles and applications by chance of variables. Coulombs law becomes Newton’s Gravitational law. The analogue of the Gauss’s Law can be used for evaluation of gravitational field.

Electricity and Magnetism can be studied together. Electric current & Thermal conduction also are associated topics.

Thus by giving top priority to Modem Physics, Electrostatics, Magnetic effects of current and earth’s magnetism, Heat & Thermo Dynamics, SHM and Oscillations, Current Electricity, Gravitation & Rotational Mechanics, EMI, AC & EM Waves, Optics & Kinematics we can achieve a decent score in NEET Physics 2019. These are the Chapters which are given extra focus and practice in Venper’s Crash Course 2019 commencing from 20th March 2019.

Good Luck Aspirants!!
