Let me break the ice for you and just say it. NIMCET is not tough, it is a medium level difficulty exam. Neither is it vast nor is it brain draining. We are going to help you out with all the confusion that you have regarding NIMCET. Before we jump to that, let me clarify some fundamental things that are necessary when you get yourself into preparing for NIMCET.
Students are extremely passionate about their preparations, they craft strategies and design long time tables, decide to put in 4-6 hours of studies every day, to avoid all the distractions, no usage of mobile and so on. Loads of righteous constraints, but sadly this is adhered to only for a short duration. A student who tops the country and secures the best seat, he did a few things differently, one out of those few things is that he was consistent in his plans.
Concentration is a prerequisite of effective learning. This is a factor that a lot of students would agree they suffer in. We understand that in the world of numerous distractions it is hard to pay attention. Getting distracted is your right and you will rightfully claim it, however, when you claim on that right, there’s a corresponding duty that you have. That duty is to not get carried away by that distraction and repeat to your base in a timely manner. Come on guys, it’s not that difficult after all. The simplest ways to improve your concentration is
Having fixed hours of sleep (Usually 6-7 hours)
Have a quiet and undisturbed environment around
There’s something called as superficial learning. Which means “upar upar se padhna”, “ek baar dekh lia hai”, “thoda bohot ata hai, pura nai kia” so on and so forth. Conceptual learning is the exact opposite of this. It means you learn in depth,and never forget it. The crux of the matter is hit and brought under control. Remember how you can now multiply or divide complex numbers? You’re able to do it because you have mastered the concept of multiplication and division. That is exactly the same thing for you to aim here as well.
Revision (Read spaced revision):
Now the next issue that comes into the picture is that “sir I have studied but that was too long ago and I cant remember now”. The simplest answer is revision. You might be wondering, what spaced revision is. Spaced revision is basically that you increase the time between which you revise a particular topic. For example you completed the FUNCTION today. So ideally you should revise it again the next week, then two weeks later, then a month later, then 2 months later, then 3 months later and so on and so forth. Your mind will recognize this pattern, and before or during exams, you wont have to bang your head in going through that entire thing again.
So these are the four pillars around which your preparation should revolve. Slightest lack of effort in any of these four factors will have a significant negatively affect on your preparations.
The next thing is how you should study and manage your time.
So for this, let us bifurcate you readers into two categories, students who are in IIND Year of graduation & students who are in IIIrd Year. Students who are currently in IINd Year , they don’t have to do much now except for the fact that they are rock solid on the basic concept of each chapter c . The complicated sums in NIMCET are based on concepts which you learn in first year. When you enter IIIrd Year and your concepts are strong enough, trust me you’ve saved yourself 2 months of redundant efforts.
So for IInd Year students, take your current syllabus seriously and chill.
Here are answers to some common questions asked by you students:
a. How should I manage my coaching & college?
It’s difficult to manage long hours of college and sit again for lectures on technical subject in your coaching. Its gruesome; but that’s a thing that you can just say but not actually let that grow on you. The simplest way to deal with this is to get little more interactive in both your college and class. Make more friends there and try and make your life revolve around it. This sounds too much to ask, but when you actually try doing it, it makes you more comfortable. You’re more refreshed and enthusiasm is flowing all through you.
b. How many hours should I put in every day?
There is no general answer to this. If you have been consistent from the start and have a good level of concentration, then perhaps 3-4 hours would be enough for securing a decent rank in NIMCET. On the other hand, if you find it difficult to concentrate, then you’ll require more hours to be put in. So you’ll be confused about from where do I bring these additional hours. No you can’t; but what you can do is improve your efficiency and concentration.
c. Is self study important or is my coaching class sufficient.
There is a straight answer to this. Self study is the most important thing that you need to indulge yourself into. Classes is just a facilitator, they won’t give you the end result. Rather whats more important than spoon feeding is taking that extra efforts to learn conceptually and find new ways to learn and memorize your lessons. Invest your time in reading, practicing, and giving tests, such kind of self study will help you to achieve a rank.
