Let’s look at a few strategies that students would do well to follow during their 10+2 classes, this is also the time when they are most efficient in preparing for the competitive examinations –
- Keep an eye on online forums that are about preparation for engineering entrance examinations such as JEE.

- Partake in online courses and consultancy sessions to help stay up to date regarding the syllabus and the depth of knowledge required.
Steer Clear of Suggestion Notes
It is demeaning for engineering students to study suggestion notes. After successfully cracking an engineering exam, a student is supposed to study and work hard and hones his skills in the lab. An engineer is supposed to deal with the longevity and sustenance of engines, buildings and construction and thus if a student has prepared from suggestion notes then his learning is severely limited. This in turn can prove to be very dangerous for a student in the engineering line. It is very important to keep your basics strong for preparing for an engineering career. As a student who has chosen to pursue engineering as a career it is of the utmost importance to avoid the easy road and learn without shortcuts.
Just being a good student and completing the syllabus on time does not make you fully prepared for the JEE 2016 entrance exam. To crack the engineering examination JEE one needs to have full control on nerves. Anxiety can be a career destroyer for students who are preparing for engineering career. It has often been seen that a bright student who couldn’t keep his anxiety under control has scored less than a student who may not be as bright but has a cool level head.
