How to Score M O R E in AIEEE.....

In a way, AIEEE is not much different from your CBSE board exams. Understanding concepts is the key to success in both. Speed and accuracy is yet another aspect. If you can complete ‘most’ of the paper accurately then you surely can expect a good score.
It is the base for both boards and competitive exams. There are trivial questions that can be formed from between the lines that you might miss while giving it a quick reading. Learn “exceptions” by heart, and make a proper note. Revise them before going to the exam as these are favorite questions with paper setters.
Old is gold!
Practice previous years papers. This applied to your boards as well as entrance tests. Also, carefully examine the pattern of the papers. Set the time limit to complete the paper, speed and accuracy, will automatically come over a period of time.
Concentrate on both the theoryand the numerical part to be able to answer a major part of the paper. Focusing on one aspect limits the scoring capabilities giving your competitor a chance to poke his nose ahead of you.
AIEEE and CBSE: Two sides of the same coin
AIEEE is probably the simplest of all the engineering exams held across the country, which makes it tougher to crack. Sounds strange? It isn’t!
Many IIT-JEE (Indian Institute of Technology– Joint Entrance Examination) toppers fail to do well in the AIEEE exam each year. IIT-JEE demands building concepts and proper application of the concept, where as AIEEE demands speed and accuracy in the stipulated time, besides in-depth knowledge of the subject that JEE demands.
JEE requires you to have strong command on fundamentals to be able to crack tough questions that may be presented in an indirect manner, so that it looks more complex than it actually is. Trivial concepts have to be understood, for they are the basis on which questions are being framed.
To clear AIEEE paper, coverage of the entire syllabus, tricks to solve questions quickly and memorising ability, play an important role. Of course, luck matters, too!
AIEEE and CBSE Board exams have a lot in common and preparing for both of them side-by-side helps reduce burden as well as save crucial time especially, when every second counts! CBSE focuses more on theory while AIEEE has a numerical-based approach. It becomes relatively easy to solve numericals oncethe theory part has been understood thoroughly.

What's the Best way to Revise, before facing an exam....??

It's not always possible to find peace and quiet, and a comfortable place to revise. Try to arrange with those at home a set time and space where you can work without being disturbed. Failing that, think about whether you could use other facilities at school, college, or your local library. If you study in a room where you also eat or sleep, try to keep the work area separate, so it's not always confronting you when you're not studying.
There’s no ‘right’ way to revise, it’s largely a matter of what suits you best and the particular exam you’re taking (multiple choice answers, calculations, short-answer questions, or essays). Methods might include making notes from text books, writing quick summaries of topics (in the form of mind maps or spidergrams perhaps), reciting facts out loud, learning dates, formulae or vocabulary by heart, and reading revision books or watching revision programmes. Switching between methods
helps you hold your interest and absorb information better. Mix dull subjects with more interesting ones, for the same reason. If it’s hard to get started, begin with something easy.

Actively think about, sift and question what you’re writing and reading, and test yourself afterwards. Writing endless notes is probably a waste of time. If you come to something you don’t understand, try reading about it somewhere else. If that doesn’t work, then ask someone who knows the subject well.

If you have a problem with concentration, you can improve it by starting with short bursts of study, then adding an extra few minutes to each session. Don’t try to study for longer than 45 to 60 minutes at a stretch.

It may be less stressful to do the work than it is to worry about it. If you find it hard getting motivated, set yourself measurable goals for each revision session, and tick them off when you’ve achieved them. After each session, acknowledge the achievement, and reward yourself with something. Have a break between sessions, or if you find things getting on top of you. Get a soft drink, read a magazine or take some exercise. Bear in mind that drinks containing caffeine, such as cola, tea and coffee, are stimulants, and may make you feel more agitated.
It's worth practising timed exam questions and papers. This can give you some idea of what the real exam will be like, and of how to divide your time between questions. Although exam papers are never the same, they're similar enough to be useful. There's a good quote that goes, "the more I practised, the luckier I got".

It felt OK to be in the routine of working some of the time and then going to the gym or for a run. I was still going out at night, but I was getting home at a reasonable time. I felt as if I'd got it under control, and so when the exams came, I'd done my best, and stayed sane.

CBSE students are now Guinea pigs

Exams are usually conducted to judge the merit of a student after successfully completing a lesson or a course. The Central Board of Secondary Education, in a revolutionary amendment, decided to abolish the compulsory exam after 10th class and to inject the idea slowly, they have made it optional for those who are appearing in the Board Class Exam (10th) in the year 2010. The decision is not praiseworthy as it has lots of drawbacks. A student’s merit can perfectly be judged by the experts of the board and it’s a proven fact. If he is a weak one, he will intend to face the school exam instead of the board exam. His main target, then, is to pass the exam. The school teachers are usually familiar to him or her. Taking the opportunity of it, the school teachers will be inclined towards tuition. Thus maximum board candidates, who fear to face the Board exam, will be capable of scoring good marks by simply taking tuition from school teachers. A survey reveals the fact that, at present, a huge percentage of the students of reputed private schools of NE region including Agartala have taken the advantage of Private Tuition from school teachers for scoring Good marks in summative assessment test. Thus the main aim of making the matriculation exam an optional one, will be spoiled. Poor students, who have no ability to keep tuition, will face hardship in study in near future. It’s a bourgeois decision on he part of the Ministry of Human resource Development, a brainchild of Kapil Sibal..  On the other hand, weak students, who belong to affluent family, can easily score good marks by taking tuition from school teachers. I hope the Govt. should think twice before implementing such a sensitive decision which may mar the entire education system, though provisions have been kept in Right To Education, to ban Private tuition in any form by the School teachers. But, it will definitely take time to implement such a decision.

You will be surprised to know that most of our reputed private colleges show eminent Educationists' images in their magazines or journals. But, to your great surprise, you will rarely find them during your study period. Thus, you can realise that they are bates to catch students or so called customers. It's a popular marketing tricks of many colleges of India. So, it will be better to consult familiar or ex students before depositing your parents' hard earned money into these colleges as admission fees. Avoid Distance Education Courses as mostly they are fruitless. You can't contact your Counsellor. Ya, to increase your educational Qualification while you are in a job, is another thing....
Try to take admission in an UGC recognised University only to avoid any mishap in future...

Influenza is a viral infection that affects mainly the nose, throat, bronchi and, occasionally, lungs. Infection usually lasts for about a week, and is characterized by sudden onset of high fever, aching muscles, headache and severe malaise, non-productive cough, sore throat and rhinitis.
The virus is transmitted easily from person to person via droplets and small particles produced when infected people cough or sneeze. Influenza tends to spread rapidly in seasonal epidemics.
Most infected people recover within one to two weeks without requiring medical treatment. However, in the very young, the elderly, and those with other serious medical conditions, infection can lead to severe complications of the underlying condition, pneumonia and death.

Some Interview Tips for all of You.....

Interview tips you will find handy
Phone Interviewing Tips
An increasing number of organizations are choosing to use the phone interviewing method to screen candidates before calling them for the actual interview. The main thought behind conducting a phone interview is to allow the company to verify the basic details of the applicant while also scrutinizing his/her basic English speaking skills, enthusiasm for the job and also do a check on the details you have mentioned in your resume. Usually the company will conduct a single phone interview but such norms may or may not be followed by very company, so you can expect a second call if they would like to confirm further details regarding your education, work experience, etc.
When you are submitting your resume along with the job application do not forget to mention what time of the day you will be available as the company will call you at such a time. Be prepared for the interview and always have a copy of your resume with you in case you need it.
Exit Interview
Exit interviews are interviews conducted by a company when an employee is leaving the company. The primary reason for conducting or taking such an interview is to know why the employee is resigning or leaving his job at the company. The exit interview is conducted by either the HR manager or someone who is responsible for recruitment in the company. During the interview the employee’s boss or immediate senior is not invited thus allowing the person to be open and candid regarding his/her decision to leave the company. There is also a form that accompanies the interview where in the reasons for the employees departure from the company, overall experience and feedback is noted.
Who is the interviewer?
The interviewer is a person who is responsible for conducting an interview. The interviewer can be an outsider appointed by the company or a person from the HR or recruitment department of the company. While some interviewers may have a set questionnaire for a technical interview, group interview etc, but most interviewers believe in group discussion interviews or one on one interview. The first interview is always a written interview followed by other interviews.
Interviewers have the uncanny knack of being good observers, they precisely monitor your behavior, your interaction abilities, how confidently you participate and answer during a group interview.
The questions that you can expect – tell me something about yourself, what do you remember the most about your college campus, and why do you want to join this company etc.
Technical Job Interview Tips
Technical job interviews are not classified as being amongst the easier of the job interviews conducted. These interviews are conducted for only those who are technically qualified in a particular field say like computer language programming or engineering. The interviewer will have a certain agenda for each candidate usually based on his/her field of expertise. A technical interview can be very tough if you are not sound in the field, the interviewer can grind you extensively till the time they know for sure whether or not you are completely qualified for the position you seek.
On your part you would well to do some research regarding the latest developments in your sector and the latest tools and applications being employed. If you have been out of job for sometime then do brush up and polish your skills wherever needed.
Creating the first impression
A lot has always been said about the ‘First Impression.’ And the fact is that your first impression during the interview can make a world of difference to your job prospects. First and foremost is dressing up appropriately for the interview. Do not dress up loudly, do not wear a jeans and funky accessories just to prove you are in sync with fashion, neither should to dress up in such a way to suggest you have no dressing sense.
Dress up smartly and your body language should reflect confidence and not a nervous persona. Every candidate has interview jitters but those who are able to display confidence along with the correct attitude are always able to create the right first impression. Thereafter the interviewer is looking forward to interviewing you and knowing about the skills, the abilities and a lot more that you may have to offer to the company.
