How To Score Top Rank in B.Tech Exams 2021?
Having a great score in your engineering exams is vital as your placements and chances of studying abroad in a good university depends on these scores.
To Help You with the Same, We At Cynohub Are Here With Detailed Information And Tips on how to score maximum marks ( FYI, there are tips which we collected from the first Bencher’s As Well 😂 )
This blog contains tips on how to score maximum marks on your b.tech exams, how to approach each question and learn each question while managing your time wisely
Right from first year of B.Tech everyone will have doubts, On how tough will be correction in Engineering exams ? and How to get top marks in B.Tech or Engineering exams ?
Here are the top 10 Tips and Tricks to clear your Engineering exams:
1 . Write In Points:
Imagine you are evaluating an answer sheet, you need to evaluate around 30-40 papers per hour and around 200-300 papers per day. So, think about the evaluators attention span and the time they spend on each paper.
Whenever you are writing a long answer, make sure you are dividing it into points so that it’s easy for the evaluator to understand and identify key words in the answer.
There’s a myth that filling all the pages with irrelevant information gives you a guaranteed minimum amount of marks in your B.tech exams, but most of the time it makes the evaluators job of correcting harder and you end up scoring less than you hoped for.
For example, when you are reading notes which have large blocks of text, you find it very difficult to read and understand,Whereas with bullet points it’s easier to remember, learn, and revise as well.
2 . Definitions:
Usually, when we write an answer in the exam, we write it in our own words but we shouldn’t do this while writing definitions.
Please write definitions exactly as written in the textbook because definitions contain terminology, keywords etc. so, when we try to write that on our own, the definition may lose its inherent meaning.
This also makes it easier for the examiner to understand your answers, which inturn improves your scores.
3 . Diagram’s:
Whenever you are writing an answer and you draw a diagram related to the answer, make sure that it’s drawn perfectly with labelled parts, clean and neat.
If you learn how to draw diagrams, It makes it easier for you to formulate and remember the answer using diagrams as well. Let me explain what I mean by this. Suppose a diagram has different parts to it and you know the functions and importance of each of them, all you have to do is connect the dots, the definitions and the rest of the information will come to you naturally.
Practice diagrams multiple times until you perfect them, This ensures you don’t miss out any labels and details that the diagram might contain.
Some common advantages of diagrams in exam:
• Diagram’s are easy to understand, usually attention grabbing and impressive.
• You can easily represent various concepts using a neat diagram.
• we can easily grasp the concept and then give a clear representation of the data.
• it saves time and energy to convey large answers concisely.
4. Do not mug up:
Mugging up makes learning more clumsy and difficult eventually.
Always learn answers like a story and understand the concept so that you can remember it when necessary.
When you mug up an answer and you miss a sentence/ keyword, the answer doesn’t make sense. But if you have a clear understanding of the concepts and definitions , your answers will be much more senseful
If you want to learn answers with high quality animated lectures easily instead of mugging up the answers without understanding the concept , head-on to cynohub and spend half of the time it takes to mug up in actually learning and understanding the concepts easily.
5. Always Learn From Fundamentals:
When you are starting a lesson, start with the fundamentals and then go to the Questions
Suppose, when you are constructing a building, if the foundation is not strong enough the building will collapse, the same logic applies to your fundamentals , if they are not strong, you can’t answer hard questions or complex concepts in the exam.
So, whenever you are learning a subject/ concept from scratch, start from the fundamentals and then go to advance concepts.
Adding to that, your units in a subject are also interlinked from first unit to last unit. So, in any subject unit-1 is definitely important.
The first 45-60 minutes of an exam,your attention levels would be at their peak, if you ever observed, the first few pages of your answer sheet are always neat,
Clean,concise and you divide the points clearly but eventually they tend to get scrambled, undivided , shabby etc.
So, in the first 1 hour, attempt the questions which you are absolutely confident about and know the answers perfectly to.
You’ll have two huge advantages by doing this,you will be confident enough to attempt the rest of the questions and you’ll present the answers perfectly.
From the evaluators point of view, he/she evaluates the questions in order, i.e, from the first question, so when you attempt the first few questions perfectly, he/she may be much more lenient while correcting the rest of the answers.
Formulas are very important, Especially when it comes to engineering exams.Whenever You Are Writing a formula, Highlight it.
This makes good impression and could fetch you more marks
Practice formulae as much as you can, they are very important and you should give special attention to them.
Whenever you are practicing numericals and formulae, make a note of every formula you practised in a sheet, so that on the day of the exam, its easier to revise
8. Do Not Copy:
Copying in an exam has all the downsides possible and no advantages,Consider these factors before you think about copying in an exam.
What is the probability that the person you are copying from has written the correct answers?
Is copying worth the risk because if the invigilator catches you doing it, the consequences would be far worse than getting a low score.
Copying is a futile exercise because if you write down the concepts without understanding them, You will fail when it comes to using them in real life applications. Instead, take advantage of online learning platforms like Cynohub, which explain complicated concepts in a clear and easy way and make learning fun.
Practising your questions multiple times is important, Especially when it comes to mathematics
Working on a new problem/concept in mathematics is harder and takes longer when compared to solving a problem/concept that you have already practised because when you are stuck, it’s easier to understand where you’re lagging and which formulae you can use to solve the problem.
So, it’s going to be a lot quicker and easier to answer questions in the stimulated time.
Here are the common advantages of practice:
• It’s the most effective way to learn and memorize something
• Whenever you practice something, it registers in your subconscious mind and makes it easier to write in an exam
• Perfection repeating an activity several times and that’s nothing but practice.
Your seniors, friends say, backlogs are common and btech is meant for backlogs, lol
Backlogs are a very big headache and annoying to clear.
Suppose, you are done with your first semester exams and jntuh says that the exams will be conducted again how’d you feel? So sad right.
Also, the level of interest to learn the subjects, concepts you already learnt again will also be pretty low.
The second consequence, if you want to clear a backlog of the first semester in another semester, is you should write it along with the second semester exams, that make it even tougher to clear them because these are additional subjects and you have double the work and stress.
It also affects your placements, opportunities and further studies.
Backlogs are never a good option, I say never ⚠
Some common disadvantages of backlogs
• It puts a bad impression of you on the teachers’
• sometimes you may feel isolated/ignored by classmates while discussing the subjects.
• your lecturers might assume that you’re an average or below average student, which affects their judgement when it comes to evaluating your practicals and internals and inturn may lead to low scores.
• some companies prefer individuals with no backlog record, so this would affect your career in the long-term.
11. All In One Books:
All in one’s contain only answers, they don’t contain any in-depth explanation of the concepts.
Notes provided by the faculty or by cynohub would be much easier to learn and understand when compared to printed all in one’s which may have vague or outdated answers.
The answers which you get all in one are much more complicated when compared to your notes and the evaluators easily find all in one answers due to their experience and it affects their judgement while correcting your answers.
Please rely on your faculty notes or cynohub notes.
12. Last Minute Preparation:
For last minute preparation, don’t try to learn new things, concepts. It makes things even more complicated and hard.
Make sure you are revising things that you have already learnt, so that you are confident enough in writing those answers.
Whenever you are discussing with friends, discuss the questions unit wise so that you can get an overview of the unit and feel confident about the grip you have on the subject.
Presentation is all about consistency, make sure whatever you work on from the first question to the final one. Makes complete sense and is written in a clean, concise and comprehensible manner. The way you present your answer sheet makes or breaks your evaluators overall attitude/impression while evaluating your answers so be very mindful about your presentation.
