Clearing JEE exams with flying colors is perhaps the dream of students aspiring to become engineers. However, out of 13 lakh participants annually for JEE (Main), only 2 lakh students are able to make the cut for JEE (Advanced), while majority of them are stumped…Although many students are bright and have put in their efforts, yet they do not make it. The reason perhaps is the lack of clear direction. That’s precisely what analytics does when combined with coach/teacher’s advice. The primary aim of analytics is to give clear direction-assessment of strengths, areas of focus, progress over time and standing.
Most students rely on past papers and patterns and try to cram topics thus falling short in the exam… The best recourse would be to practice on fresh questions, objectively reflect on performance during the JEE practice tests by referring to the unbiased assessment of preparation. Having known how exactly one fares in each of the chapters can throw an insight into focus areas to concentrate efforts. The analytics of self-performance is one of the best strategies for engineering entrance exams as it gives clear direction to improve performance. In fact, taking up JEE practice test at regular intervals with adequate preparation between tests and using test analytics to gauge performance and improve approach to writing papers will help improve scores.
Additionally, the analysis of JEE Main preparation tells exactly how much time was spent on each section, on each question against a reference, number of visits to a question, number of answer changes, degree of difficulty of the question, subject shifts among many others . Armed with these in-depth insights, along with their coach/teacher, students can not only cull out focus areas but also work on exam strategy and time management to help perform better for the finals.
Practice makes a man perfect and this is true for the coveted JEE exams as well. Students must take up as many online practice tests as possible with a reasonable preparatory time in between two tests, study the reports and analytics, discuss with teacher/coach to identify key focus areas and improve exam strategy. This will help students progress positively towards their goal without the unwanted pressures and pleasures of peer comparison which may or may not have relevance on the final result.
Most importantly, when students form a routine of practicing the tests, they are well prepared to appear for the main exam. It will not just help students in time management, exam strategy and subject level feedback, but also instill in them confidence for the final exams.
So, if you want to take your results to the next level towards securing your seat for engineering, it is vital that you make use of practice, focus and analytics. It is not just a tool, but in fact a mirror that reflects your preparations in an unbiased manner and helps you and your coach/teacher to reach the stars.
