Humanity is going through a tough time fighting a horrid war against coronavirus today. The lockdown period has pushed the world towards a complete standstill, with doctors and medical staff worldwide fighting relentlessly to stop the virus from spreading. So needless to say, you should also do your part too by staying at home and preparing for your exams which have been postponed.
Looking at the flip side, it can be said that students who are appearing for their board examination have benefitted to some extent, from this international emergency due to coronavirus. Now is the time to strengthen their exam preparation with mock tests online.
You might wonder that after so many months of preparation, what more can mock tests do to boost your exam preparation at home during this lockdown.
Well, even during this phase when you are gearing up for the remaining tests, mock exams online on Eduwhere can bring you a world of benefits, because -
You can test strategies and understand the most effective one
Yes, you are preparing all the formulae, the theories, the concepts and what not? But lapping up the correct strategy is very important, especially with exams postponed. Now in this emergency, due to the Covid-19, a deadly and very contagious virus, you need to understand how much ready you are for the examinations. Mock tests will help you to strategize how to carry out the preparation to score pretty well.
You can learn new ways to solve numerical questions
Mock-tests are usually a little bit tougher than the original exam-papers hence when you are solving difficult problems, you are taxing your brain to find out new solutions. This, in turn, helps you to solve easier problems in no time. Basically, you get seasoned properly. Sometimes you need to think of new ways to solve a problem based on the concept itself.
Learn better time-management
Taking mock tests will be your perfect partner as far as online test preparation is concerned. You will start solving papers under time constraints which will give you a fair share of an idea of how you have to manage your time while solving question papers during the actual examination. You will be able to understand how much time you have to dedicate to each section to complete the paper in time. If you want to perform well, you must also understand the pattern of the question paper and you should be thorough with it and mock-test papers help you with that as well. All this is required to make sure that you are always spot on!
Practice makes a man perfect
Practice is all you need while preparing. This is a good time to practice, you have been given a chance with exams postponed, so do not let it go in vain. Learn the basics, the concepts, formulae and everything else only to apply the concepts while solving mock-test papers. While solving the papers you might face difficulty, you might get stuck but this will help you to understand how much you are prepared and where you are lagging. The more the mock test papers you solve, the more used to you become with the different types of problems. The practice also increases your tenacity to continue studies for long hours at a stretch.
Analyze your performance better by taking mock tests
Every student must solve the question papers and understand the mistakes they have made. This understanding will help them to know how much they are likely to score in the examination. Check your paper, make the correction wherever necessary and remember the solutions.
If you are one of the students who want to score well in your board examination then this is the right time for you to start exam preparation at home with the mock-test papers provided online by Eduwhere.

So stay at home, stay safe, and study well while you still have time because once the Covid-19 emergency ends, it will be time for you to prove your mettle.
Remember, rough times never last but tough people always do!

JEE Mains and board exams are perhaps the most important tests for every student who aspires to study engineering, architecture or planning. Students at this juncture in their lives feel pretty pressurized and they find it difficult to find the balance. But believe it or not, with some proper planning, it is not that hard after all.
The first point is perhaps the most important one and that is keeping calm. Then, start your planning and balance your study time for both the exams.
The syllabus for JEE and your Board exams are almost the same, with major differences lying in the pattern of these exams.
Board Exam pattern
Questions in the Board exam are typically descriptive in nature and you will find questions from chapters included in your Class 12th syllabus only. The level of difficulty is moderate and there are no negative marks for wrong answers.
JEE Mains Exam pattern
JEE Mains exam is a computer-based test that includes only objective questions. There are questions from chapters included in both the 11th and 12th standards syllabus, so the range is wider here.
- For B.E./B. Tech paper there are 75 questions of 300 marks total
- For B. Arch paper there are 77 questions of 400 marks total
- For B. Planning paper there are 100 questions of 400 marks total
JEE Mains is a competitive examination, so the level of difficulty is obviously higher than that of Board exams. 4 marks are awarded for every correct answer and 1 mark deducted for every wrong answer in the MCQ section. There is also a Numerical Value-based questions section, for which there is no negative marking.
How to balance the JEE Mains and board exam preparation?
The best part of the JEE Mains is that it is conducted twice a year, which means you can now concentrate on one exam at a time. The first phase of JEE 2020 was held between Jan 6th and 11th, but if you couldn’t make it then or are not satisfied with how your exams went, there is one more chance for you. Prepare for the second attempt which will be held between April 3rd and 9th 2020 as declared by NTA (National Testing Agency). With regular practice tests online on Eduwhere, you can assess your preparation and go a long way for sure!
But, don’t forget to focus on your board exams preparation, since that does not come in phases!
The ideal way to balance your JEE preparations is to chart out a study timetable and stick to it.
You can follow a timetable like the one below, to effectively balance your JEE Mains preparations and Board examination.
Following this timetable will help you stay in touch with all the subjects. So, studying at least 8 to 10 hours a day will help you immensely.
But apart from following the time table mentioned above, as a student, you must take care of a few other things while preparing for JEE Advanced.
- Yes, JEE preparations take time and you have to be patient and understand the concepts first. Once you get your fundamentals strong, you will automatically feel more confident. This is because if your basic concepts remain clear, you will be able to score well in both the Board examinations as well as JEE Mains. The basic concepts of Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics will not change, after all.
- One habit that you must develop from your practice tests is to start by answering the questions that you are sure about. Never waste your time thinking about the ones you are sceptical about. This habit will save you time and once you complete your answers, you will get time to revisit the questions you are not very sure of.
- DO NOT ignore any part or chapter while preparing for JEE. Certain chapters might be included in your JEE Mains but not in JEE Advanced examination. For instance, Electronic Devices and Communications Systems chapters in Physics form an important part of JEE Mains and the Board exam, but they are excluded in the JEE Advanced Exam. So you must be mindful and go through these chapters well. Solve as many questions as you can from mock tests and previous years’ papers.
While preparing for your board exams, make sure to concentrate more on the exclusive board type questions. These subjective type questions come with more weightage in the Boards exams.
The importance of online mock tests cannot be emphasized enough, because practice will lead you to perfection. You can register yourself on Eduwhere for their comprehensive JEE Mains online mock tests, and strengthen your preparation for the engineering entrance exam.
IIT-JEE is one of the most important and toughest engineering exams conducted for admission in IITs, NITs, IIITs and other prominent technology institutes.

When preparing for engineering exams in India, along with the syllabus of different exams, candidates should also do a comparison of IIT-JEE Mains syllabus with JEE Advanced.
JEE Main syllabus
JEE Main syllabus covers topics from CBSE Class 11 and 12 Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics subjects. Some of the important topics covered in JEE Main include:
- Electronic Devices
- Electromagnetic Waves
- Communication Systems Similarly
- Chemistry in Everyday Life
- Relations and Functions
- Statistics and Probability
- Mathematical Reasoning
JEE Advanced syllabus
Though JEE Advanced also covers topics from class 12 Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, it also includes some additional topics. Some of the important topics covered in JEE Advanced syllabus include:
- Thermal Physics
- Electrochemistry: Equivalent Conductivity, Nuclear Chemistry
The difficulty level of the exam
Although both the exams are difficult, JEE Advanced is considered more difficult due to the type of questions asked in this.
Let's understand this with the help of an example:
Your nephew Amar is a very good hockey player. His uncle Rahul and his mother Rama are very good cricket players and his grandfather Mahesh is a good tennis player. Mahesh loves his only grandchild and feels very happy that his sons Rahul and Mehul are doing well in their careers. He just wanted his wife to be alive to see the wedding of his second son.
JEE Mains question: Which of the following statements is wrong?
- Amar is a good cricket player.
- Rahul plays tennis well.
- Mahesh is good at playing hockey.
- All of the above.
JEE Advanced question: Your name and the total number of members in your family respectively are_______ _______.
(A) Rahul, 6
(B) Rahul, 5
(C) Mehul, 6
(D) Mehul, 5
From this question, you can understand the difference in the type of questions asked in JEE Mains and Advanced. In JEE Main they check your basic concepts and speed while in Advanced they check how well you can apply the concepts in real life.
The difference in colleges that accept JEE Main and Advanced score
This is one of the major differences defining the importance of JEE Main and JEE Advanced. Candidates who want to get admission in IITs and ISM Dhanbad need to clear JEE Advanced along with top 20 percentiles in recognized boards. Candidates who just clear JEE Main can apply for admission in NITs, IIITs and different CFTIs.
Difference between JEE Main and JEE Advanced preparation
IIT-JEE preparation strategies are different for the students aiming to crack only JEE Main and the ones aiming both JEE Main and Advanced. Candidates preparing for JEE Main need to focus on CBSE Class 11 and 12 physics, chemistry and mathematics subjects as the questions in the exam are usually picked from NCERT textbooks. Candidates who want admission in IITs only need to target JEE Advanced and for their preparation, they need to go through some additional topics covered in the syllabus.
For JEE Main, you need to focus on your speed and accuracy, which can easily be done by solving mock tests. JEE Advanced preparation, on the other hand, needs a deep knowledge of the topics and their application. So along with going through the theory, you should also understand the concepts and their application.
If you want to realize your dream of getting admission in India’s top engineering colleges, you must be well prepared for both the exams. Candidates who perform well in JEE Main only get selected for JEE Advanced. So, you can’t ignore any of the exams when targeting IIT-JEE.

Revise the formulae regularly: Solving the Quantitative Aptitude part will require many formulae, and you should remember them perfectly. Also, it is important that you also understand the derivations of the formulae. Make a list of all important formulae from all topics and go through them regularly, whenever you get free time.
Develop your own shortcuts: Do not jump right into solving questions with shortcut techniques. Build the concepts first. You must understand the theory and basics to get proper learning. This will be helpful in sections like numerical ability and reasoning. For example, we know in two arbitrary numbers [(a+b)^2 = a^2 + b^2 +2ab]. You should learn the derivation of this formulae before applying it directly in questions. If you get a question that is different from the one you practised, you will not be able to solve them unless you understand the concepts. Even in English, learn the rules of grammar, so you know why we say what we say. Do not leave loopholes in your preparation. There is a lot of competition in the SBI Clerk Recruitment, and you don’t want to miss the chance.
Develop a reading habit: Reading performs a vital function in the preparation of competitive exams like the SBI Clerk. Your SBI Clerk study plan must have enough time allocated for reading newspapers, magazines, and books. Spend at least 1-2 hours every day reading. This will be of great help for the English language section and general aptitude section in both the SBI clerk prelims and SBI Clerk Mains.
Follow your timetable properly: A good timetable is descriptive and realistic. Give enough time for each topic mentioned in the syllabus. Once you have made the timetable, stick to it. Many students think that once the timetable is made, it will be easy to crack the exam because they just have to follow the timetable. Remember that the timetable is of no use unless you follow it. Give more time for topics that you think you are weak at. Also, consider the weightage of the topic. Also, get enough practice on the strong topics, or you will lose your edge.
Hone your time management skills: Since there are many topics and sections to cover, and you also need to practice and do mock tests, it is important that you divide and manage your time effectively. It is important to cover the topics, but you do not need to solve every single question in the exam. You need more accuracy than the number of solutions in the exam. You must know there is not unlimited time. We need to prioritize things. Do not spend too much time on one topic just because you like it too much. Be sensible.
Revision before the exam: Once you are done with all topics, keep doing revision so that you will never forget them. Go through the formulae, questions, and solutions and concepts. Take out time for regular revision. The last couple of days before the examination must be reserved only for revision and mock tests.
Practice SBI Clerk online mock tests: After you have finished all the topics in the syllabus, take complete SBI Clerk online mock tests and keep track of your performance. Analyze your weak areas and take out time to improve them.
