Tips to Crack WBJEE:

Keep doing your revision

All the topics you studied in 11th standard are going to be the basics of the new chapters of 12th. It is crucial to know your basics if you want to focus on a course like engineering. Not being familiar with your school curriculum will almost definitely be a major disadvantage for you in college. WBJEE focuses its exam on your knowledge.

Practice papers are your friends

You need speed if you want to score well in WBJEE 2016. Revising your books and notes will not help you build speed. That speed only comes from actual test taking. So as the year goes, practice questions from the chapters you have studied on a regular basis. Once you have done all the chapters, before the WBJEE exams, get all the previous year paper’s as well as mock papers, and just attend as many as you can. Time yourself to see how much you score in each WBJEE paper, and keep pushing yourself to do better with each new practice paper.

Learn how to focus better

To crack WBJEE 2016 you need to perform at the best of your capabilities. This means that you need to be clearheaded and focused when you step in the examination hall. Sleep well on the night before, and have a simple breakfast. Moderation is the key to being relaxed, so do not starve yourself, or eat too much.

Have a strategy

Any entrance exam like WBJEE needs a strategy. Will you attempt the questions you know, first? Or will you be going through all of them one by one? Is there a favourite subject that you will lead with? How much time are you setting aside for each question? You’d better have the answers to these questions before you start writing your paper.

Do not guess

Guesswork will get you nowhere in an exam, especially a highly competitive one like the WBJEE 2016. Getting a question wrong will directly impact your rank. With negative marking and direct harm of 33% for every question you get get wrong, you are better off doing what you are confident about, and leaving the guesswork to people who may end up far lower than you in rank thanks to their own folly.

Take care of your health

There are far too many students who fall sick a week before their competitive exams, some times even on the night before. The reason for this is simple, they do not take proper care of their health. Do not make the same mistake. Eat well, avoid junk food, and get proper rest.

Be prepared for the WBJEE 2016 exam day

There are some things that you will need to carry with you on your exam dates. Make sure you prepare a kit in advance so there are no issues on the day of the exam. Keep 2 pencils, 2 black pens, 2 blue pens, an eraser, and an ink remover with you. Do not forget to wear your watch so you do not need to keep asking the invigilator for the time, and carry a water bottle as well, so you do not get distracted in the middle of the exam by thirst.
