- Sections like quantitative aptitude and logical reasoning needs lot of practice so aspirants should keep practicing such questions on regular basis.
- For quantitative aptitude revise maths related concepts up to 10th standard.
- Service aptitude is one section which is important and candidates have no clue about it, so the strategy should be to read articles related to qualities needed to be a part of service industry.
- For scientific aptitude candidates should revise basics of physics, chemistry, and biology.
Careers360 What should be section wise exam preparation strategy of aspirants?
- English Language- Build a strong vocabulary as there are questions on synonyms, antonyms, spellings in the English Language section. So, develop reading habit and learn at least 5 new words per day. Further, strengthen your preparation by learning synonyms, antonyms, and sentence making of the five words recently learned by aspirants.
- Maths- Practice short cut techniques for calculations.
- Logical reasoning- practice variety of questions and puzzles on daily basis so as to improve question solving speed. For questions on quantitative aptitude practice some short cut techniques on calculations on daily basis. Most of the questions in the exam can be solved using short cut methods.
- General awareness & scientific aptitude- Work on daily basis to build current affairs and cover basics for scientific aptitude.
Careers360 Tips to ace general knowledge and current affairs section?
Hanumant Sabherwal: For current affairs a candidate can follow 2-3 national newspaper or news channel on regular basis and maintain notes on important news events. Then, revise the prepared notes every week.
To attempt questions based on general knowledge, I suggest NCHM JEE aspirants to stay updated with high school level syllabus of geography, history and civics subjects.
Careers360 How would you advise students to prepare for the Aptitude for Hospitality Sector section which is not taught to students at school/college level?
Hanumant Sabherwal: Service aptitude is the section which covers carries no negative marking. In fact graded marks are awarded (i.e.0.25. 0.5, 0.75. 1) and the most appropriate answer gets 1 mark.
Also candidates have no clue about service sector aptitude, so the strategy should be to read articles related to qualities needed to be a part of service industry.
Careers360 How many weekly hours do aspirants need to put in for NCHM JEE 2015 preparation?
Hanumant Sabherwal: It is important that aspirants stay in touch with studies on regular practice. Do a bit for each section every day. I believe a dedicated 4-5 hours of study per week is sufficient to crack to exam.
Careers360 What should be the time management strategy for NCHM JEE 2015 exam day?
Hanumant Sabherwal: First, candidates should try to finish GK & current affairs sections because in this section either you know or you don’t know so time taken is hardly 10-12 minutes. Then one should look at service aptitude as this section doesn’t have negative marking but most appropriate answer can give you higher scores. Then, candidates can go for sections as per their own strengths.
