First stage: Devising study schedule

NCHM JEE aspirants can prepare a study schedule depending on their weak and strong subjects. A larger share of time should be allotted to subjects, which are tough for the aspirant. Study schedule needs to be crafted keeping in mind ways to strengthen the weak area and numbers of hours to be invested for a specific topic.

 

The study schedule can be divided into 6-month study plan and two short study schedules of three months. The study schedule should also be incorporated with a timetable for revision. The time duration of study hours varies from person to person. However on an average, 4-5 hours of study is sufficient for preparing for the exam.

Second stage: Section wise exam preparation

The second stage of exam preparation depends on several factors including aspirants study curve in accordance with studied or yet-to-be-studied topics and NCHM JEE syllabus, gaining question solving speed, and adopting a smart time management strategy while attempting the paper. Below we have discussed in detail on the three pointers along with couple of preparation tips.

 

A.  Studies- syllabus sync

 

According to toppers, section wise NCHM JEE exam preparation is one of the important factors to score good marks and decent all India rank. Strategy for section wise exam preparation varies with sections. The five sections of the exam are Numerical Ability & Scientific Aptitude, General Knowledge & Current Affair, Reasoning & Logical Deduction, English Language and Aptitude for Service Sector. For example, preparing the first two sections is a bit complex as the syllabus is not well defined. So, to help aspirants crack the exam, we bring plethora of NCHM JEE preparation tips offered by toppers of previous years.

 

1.  Read Newspapers

Read at least 2-3 newspapers every day. The activity can be started a year before the exam. However, preparing 8-9 months prior to the exam is also a safe option for securing good marks in General Knowledge & Current Affair section.

 

Newspaper reading has dual benefits. Besides, updating the reader with latest happenings and news, it improves vocabulary and increases reading comprehension skills. The dual advantage helps aspirants to perform well in English Language section too.

 

2.   Watch a minimum of 10 news stories

Dedicate one hour daily in morning and evening for watching news channels.  Aspirants should watch at least ten news stories per day. Follow important news. Get aware of all the reasons/causes of the happening and its consequences/outcomes. All the dimensions of important national and international news must be followed and understood. Take help of internet and social media platforms to search the related term of important news and events in order to gain in-depth information about it. 

Toppers speak: Soumalya Banerjee, who secured All India Rank 2 in NCHM JEE 2014 shares that watching hospitality and tourism themed television programmes played an important role in enhancing his overall exam preparation, especially for the two already mentioned sections.

B.   Tips to gain question solving speed

Set a deadline to solve a number of questions. Try to solve questions within the set time frame. At initial level, number of questions to be solved within 30-35 minutes can be 15-20.  Gradually, increase the question strength to 25-30 and try to solve the questions within 30 minutes.

 

Question solving speed is directly related to daily practice of attempting questions. Make it a daily routine to attempt questions from different sections. On the examination day, aspirants reap the advantages of gained skill by solving the paper in time efficient manner and saving time to solve skipped questions.

Prantik HaldarTopper speak: Prantik Haldar, who secured All India Rank 4 in NCHM JEE 2014, says that he was able to attempt and solve a lot of questions from his favourite section because he was updated on most of latest news topics.

C.   Tips for section wise exam preparation

Numerical Ability-Scientific Aptitude and General Knowledge & Current Affair: Apart from the above mentioned preparation tips for the two sections, the following simple tips will be helpful to ace NCHM JEE exam preparation –

  • Don’t limit your general knowledge preparation to topics/news/events of past 7-8 months as older important events may also be asked.
