From 2013 onwards “One Nation One Test” policy for Entrance into Engineering Colleges which has started getting implemented across nation.
What does this policy mean?
The various state-wise entrance examinations will be replaced by one test for Entrance into Engineering
- Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) (Mains) for Engineering
Let us explain the changed scenario in detail:
|How does it affect students||How to cope with this change|
|Concepts of both 11th & 12th||Preparation for JEE has to start from 11th std.|
|Equal focus on Board Exams||In the case of JEE, 40% weightage is on board examinations marks. Hence, descriptive questions have gained a lot of importance.|
|Shift in approach: from speed to clarity of concepts||You need to have deeper understanding of the concepts. Students need to focus on clarity of concepts more than speed of solving questions.|
|Competition on a national level||As the competition has increased manifold, even a single mark would make or break the chances of getting into a reputed college. Hence lots of practice is needed to prepare students better to face the competition on a national level. (In 2013, 12 lakhs students appeared for JEE (Mains))|
