Careers360: If students rely on coaching material, where do you extract that from? Which books are used for the purposeUma Shankar: Every coaching institute have their own academic programme. Identify which institute is the best among them based on their previous results. Most of the coaching institutes are providing correspondence coaching. Enroll in any one of them and try to write their mock tests and solve their rank sure materials for getting confidence and additional practice. Soon Sri Chaitanya which is Asia’s largest Educational Institutions is going to provide online examinations to other institutional students. The above-listed books mentioned under question number 2 are all useful.
Careers360: How do you think preparation should differ for online exam being conducted twice? What strategy should students follow for preparation?Uma Shankar: As, Ministry of Human Resource Development, MHRD had announced on July 7 that National Testing Agency, NTA would be conducting the JEE Main examination in online mode from 2019 onwards in January and April. Now, let’s see how this decision will benefit the students.
Benefits for Students
1) The exam will be conducted as a computer based test twice a year giving an adequate opportunity to the candidates to bring out their best as they will be able to use the best score from the multiple attempts during the counselling process.
2) The twice a year model for the entrance examinations would help students to pace their studies and most importantly give them an additional opportunity to appear without wasting their year.
3) The candidates will also have the option of going to the computer centres from August end to practice for the computer-based exam. NTA is an autonomous body so transparency regarding the examinations is going to improve adequately.
4) Candidates can write either one or both the examinations. Also, candidates have an option of choosing the date of the examination from the given set dates.
In this situation, students have to take wise decision. As far as my experience is concerned better concentrate more on January test only. The reason is simple, for January test you will get nearly 5 months of solid time for preparation, whereas for April you won’t get that much of continuous time. Because from January last week to March third week everybody will be busy with board exams and practicals. And after board exams hardly one can get maximum 15 to 20 days of time only depends upon their slots.
So keeping board exams in mind, first let us start your preparation for January test only. For this
Schedule for preparation
