The best tricks for passing the JNTU exams

Your success in JNTU examination begins with your goal. 95% of students don’t set academic goals. It’s always wise for you to begin with the end in mind. Imagine how boring and irritating it could be when you should take a journey where you don’t know where it will end. The same goes for JNTU examination, if you go into it without a clear goal, you will end up in the crowd or at best average. Like Steve Jobs said, ‘’If you are working on something exciting that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision push you.’’ Before we talk about the tricks that can help you succeed, I need to prepare you first. In all my years of experience with the JNTU examinations, I have seen students prepare for a long time and still fail and then I have seen guys who just prepare in a short time and succeed. It’s not just about your desire to succeed, having the right information’s could prove the difference. Sometimes it’s just about picking the right sources. Some folks just go from one material to the other and end up being frustrated. Here are a few tips that I believe might help you.

1. Get yourself organized and manage time


Get a place in the library that allows you to be calm and collected. It is always advisable for you to make it a permanent spot for yourself if it’s possible. This allows for more deductive thinking as you continue to study there overtime. Then set a to do list each day to allow you to effectively plan time.

One more thing, how do you meet deadlines? For this you need to use the Cushion principle. It states that, ‘’If you want to do something in future, aim to finish that task in a time before the deadline.’’ If you are to submit an assignment by Friday, aim to finish it by Wednesday.

2. Pick the right material


Using multiple textbooks can improve your understanding of a subject but it could also confuse you. You may get overwhelmed and worst lose interest. Concentrate on using your notes as your primary material and then get a standard textbook for referencing. The course you are preparing also matters. I remember studying Laplace theorem where I had to get more than a textbook to understand it. If you have to do this, make sure it’s not more than two textbook and the other one is there to help you get the central idea.

Another reason why your note is important is that most lecturers in JNTU will form their note the way they expect you to answer questions they ask. Your note will help you get to the mind of the lecturer.

3. Use Jntu world


The Jntu world portal has a rich resource of materials and information for you such as past questions. The forum section will also help you a great deal. You can also get all the relevant past questions including video lectures.

The fastest and best way to prepare for JNTU examination is by always asking questions and answering them. You need past question majorly for two reasons.

•To give you an idea of the type of question and to get an idea of which topic to concentrate on

•Answering past questions also makes reading interesting

To start studying a past question, get a notebook and write on it, ‘Questions and answers.’ Then go on and write both the questions and the answers on it. The idea is for you to keep a record of your solved questions.

4. Group studies might help


Depending on your mode of study, group studies might be very helpful to your success. This doesn’t work for everybody though. Some are better suited studying alone. Group study might reveal to you a part in your work that you have overlooked. Or it might help you especially when you have tried to solve a question and the solution is not forthcoming. Someone in your group may have an idea to solve it. And it is also a good way to revise what you have read especially when exams are close.

5. Study the question well before answering them


This trick will help you when you are in the examination hall. For you to manage time effectively so that you’ll be able to attempt all the questions you are confident about, you should do the following.

•First read through the whole question and begin to grade them imaginatively in order of your competence in them. Then carefully select the ones you can score the most marks in. Don’t worry all questions carry an equal 16 marks.

•Make sure the first question you pick is the one you can answer better. This trick will enable you to impress the examiner from the beginning. And make sure that the answer and the answer sheet is very neat and quite lengthy.

•Become confident
