Every student appears for competitive exams in India, and some really want to crack these competitive exams because these competitive exams are going to clear their path for their future.
India conducts tonnes of competitive exams every year. Some of them are quite popular amongst Indian students.
List of exams for undergraduates.
- IIT JEE.
- DU entrance exams.
- JNU entrance exams.
These are some of the most common exams for which every single student appears and takes chances to crack these exams, but only a few are able to make it possible.
There are so many reasons behind the failure of students; some of them are.
- Lack of guidance.
- Wrong approach.
- Wrong method of preparation.
- Having exam fears.
- Not having proper confidence to crack the exam.
- Never been given an exam like that before.
These are some reasons why. For these reasons, some students are unable to crack these exams.
Before starting this post, I want to tell you that I got a lot of questions on Quora from students about how to prepare for competitive exams and crack competitive exams.
I don't know about the cracking because it's on the students and not all brilliant students crack all the competitive exams. Only students with the right approach and the right mindset crack the competitive exams.
So, I will be discussing viewpoints that can help you with your competitive exams if you're ready to apply them during your preparation.
These steps work for all kinds of exams, from the basic level to the complex level. You know that there are a whole series of competitive exams conducted every year.
There are exams for class 6 students, like olympiads, that start from the very beginning of student life, in class 6, class 7 and class 8.
You are all well aware of that. Most students think that exams are like this.
- Science olympiads.
- Maths olympiads.
- Other olympiads.
- School and college-based exams.
- And other competitive exams.
- Needs coaching.
This is not true; these exams do not require any kind of coaching. You need to need the right guidance and the right amount of practice to crack these exams, plus to get a good rank.
Ways for preparing for competitive exams
There is nothing special that you need to know, and there are no shortcuts at all. You only need to follow the following steps.
- Make a list of exams for which you want to appear.
- These exams must have a similar course and syllabus.
- must know the difficulty level of the exam.
- Check out previous year's papers.
- Solve more and more questions.
- Build a good sitting habit.
You don't have to worry about the number of students appearing for the exam. Usually, students are more worried about the competition than their preparation for the competitive exam. Because of that, they fail to crack the exam.
1. First, the most crucial question that hits every student's mind is whether coaching is needed for any exams? Or is it necessary to take coaching at all?
The answer is straightforward: you don't need coaching at all. It merely depends on what kind of student you are.
If you are a good student and believe in your self-study, then you are capable of clearing any exam. On the other hand, if you are not capable of getting things done by yourself, or if you always need motivation for everything? Then you must take coaching.
Because if you need the motivation to study, it means you don't want to consider it at all.
So, you must join a coaching institute for that purpose, because they push you forward with other students.
2. What is the mindset behind the coaching? Why is coaching not important?
The concept behind any coaching is simple, whether it is for IIT, CAT, MAT or for school level exams, class 6, class 7, class 8, class 9, class 10, class 11, and class 12. They only want students capable of cracking the competitive exams.
As you know, only a few students amongst 100 thousand clear any competition exam and the rest are funders for these prominent institutes.
These coaching institutes discern who is going to provide them with rank because their business works according to that only.
So, you must take care while joining a big institution because they have mountains of fee structures.
So, from my side, coaching does not play a significant role in any student clearing the exam. Only the efforts of the student matter.
WHY DO A LOT OF STUDENTS TAKING COACHING EVERY YEAR? FOR SCHOOL EXAMS AND COMPETITION EXAMS?
If you look at things carefully today, coaching is turning into new schools.
This means there are more students in coaching than in schools. Why?
It's because, for one reason, schools are not providing any guidance to students and even teachers at schools are not adequately trained. Today, every single student is taking coaching from somewhere, from their home tutor, from any coaching institute or from an online source. And even though the students in classes 6 and 7 are taking coaching, these are small classes, and I don't think students need coaching for these classes.
REASONS WHY STUDENTS TAKING COACHING?
- DUE TO INCREASE IN COMPETITION.
- SCHOOLS DO NOT HAVE PROPER TEACHERS.
- THE TEACHING METHODS OF SCHOOL TEACHERS ARE NOT PROPER.
There are others for so many reasons.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR ANY COMPITIVE EXAMS?| AFTER CLASS 9| CLASS 10TH | CLASS S11| CLASS 12|.
1. DO A LITTLE BIT OF RESEARCH ABOUT THAT EXAM YOU ARE PREPARING FOR?
This is very important because you must know the nature of your exam. After all, that will increase the chances of cracking that competitive exam.
I have also mentioned above that you must know the difficulty level, paper pattern and how much time is required to solve that exam. According to that, you can prepare your strategy which will help you to crack your competitive exams in 2020.
2. STICK TO THE TIMETABLE THAT THE EXAM FOLLOWS?
That will include your sitting habits and the time for your preparation. You must have the proper sitting habits for at least 4-5 hours a day, because if you don't have adequate sitting habits, then you'll lack concentration in exams and feel drowsy during the exam.
Because of not having a proper sitting habit, a lot of people lose marks in competitive exams.
3. SOLVE MORE NUMBER OF QUESTIONS?
Cracking any exams simply depends on the number of questions you have solved before appearing for the competitive exams. If it is theory-based, then the case is different, but for all math and reasoning based, you need to practice a lot of questions.
Practice not only makes perfect but also improves your scores. Solving more questions will make your approaches great, and you will definitely get a better result for yourself.
And according to schoolokay, solving more questions is the key to cracking any competitive exam after your class 12th.
4. DO NOT DEMOTIVATE YOURSELF BY LOOKING AT OTHERS.
Most students prepare an excuse in advance for the exam. It's a tough one. I barely have a chance to crack that exam. It's kind of stupid. This simply shows you don't trust your own preparation.
Do not demoralize yourself, keep yourself away from those who demotivate you. And most of the time, demotivation happens by looking at others and by noticing their performance.
So, stop comparing yourself with others, because by comparing you're only reducing your confidence and nothing else.
A piece of strict advice: keep yourself away from toxic people. If you follow all the above in the right manner, you will surely crack any exam.
a few things that you must consider too.
- Figure out your real potential and act according to that. Do not just choose any exam by looking at others.
- Giver your 100%, even if it does not work, keep going until then, you have not achieved it.
- Do not fool yourself that you have your dad's business and all.
- Do not make lame excuses for your failures.
- Keep going until you have finished it.
