Most Suitable Date for JEE (Main) Online Test

You must be knowing, the name of one of the most popular exam in India, AIEEE has been renamed this year to JEE (Main). The pattern for the exam is same. However, the importance of exam has changed a lot. You may read more about the whole exam JEE in my post What is JEE 2013?

how to choose a suitable date for JEE (Main)

Choose Your Date Wisely

AIEEE had introduced option to give the exam either online or offline (paper-pencil based) in 2010. There are various benefits of giving the test online. Like:

  • One can review and change the answer at any point of time
  • The above process can be done numerous number of times
  • No. of questions attempted or unattempted could be find instantly
  • Tougher or tricky questions could be marked for review later
  • Equal time is alloted to everyone
  • No disturbance during the exam for paper work
  • Don’t need any strategy for circling the answer with pencil
  • Flexibility to choose the exam date
  • It will save Rs. 300

If someone is comfortable with computers and can sit in front of computer screen for 3 hours continuously. It is strongly recommended to go for Online Test.

Now, I’m coming to the main point of this article. How to choose the most suitable date for JEE (Main) online test?

The answer to this question is not so easy. It will differ based on your willingness to appear for JEE (Advanced).

Date Selection

JEE (Advanced) is going to be conducted on 2nd June, 2013. JEE (Main) online test is scheduled between 8th April, 2013 to 25th April, 2013. If someone is appearing for JEE (Advanced), he needs more time for JEE (Advanced) preparation. Hence, he need to appear on the earliest suitable date for the exam. Keep no confusion, the bar of 150,000 students eligibility is not at all a test for the students who are serious for JEE (Advanced). So, don’t even think that you need good amount of time to be in top 150,000 students eligible to write JEE (Advanced). If you can’t get top 150,000 for JEE (Main), don’t waste your time for JEE (Advanced).

However, if someone is just going to appear for JEE (Main), not for JEE (Advanced), he need to choose the latest date of all. So, that he could concentrate well for both 12th board and JEE (Main).

Now, if you are willing to write JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced). Don’t go for the First Day First Show. On the first two days there are chances of technical hitches during the exam. The invigilators and engineers at the test center try to familiarize themselves with the whole system of online test. Till the third day, the ambiance of test center becomes normal. Chances of hitches becomes quite less. Hence, it is recommended to choose the third day, 10th April, 2013 as your date for Online Test. However, this date is most suitable for morning slot. If you are willing to take the test in 2nd half, then go for 9th April, 2012 afternoon slot. Chances are very less of any technical problem on the second day afternoon slot. I will discuss about slot selection later.

If you are planning to appear for only JEE (Main) and you have to appear for 12th board also then choose latest dates viz 23rd or 24th April, 2013. This will give you a healthy gap for utmost preparation for JEE (Main). Plus, the pressure on your mind will be less. I didn’t recommended the last date as the invigilators would be taking this day lightly just as last working day before holidays. Remember, they would be busy with the exam for last 13 days continuously with two shifts of exams every day.

Slot Selection

Choosing the perfect slot for JEE (Main)

Don’t Get Stressed

Morning or afternoon slot plays vital role in your performance. Fundamentally, you must be knowing that the mind feels fresh in the morning hours. The thinking and analyzing capability is always higher in the morning. Overall, it is the best time to give your best shot. Remember, even if this would help you to solve just one extra question correctly. We are talking about a rank difference in hundreds to thousands. You have to give exam in the optimal state of time to deliver the best. The best from your capability means the best rank you can get in JEE (Main). However, morning or afternoon slot will not matter, if you train your body for the afternoon exam.

Those who are appearing just for JEE (Main) but are repeaters (not giving 12th board). The choice of date for you will depend on you only. As the date won’t matter for you. You might just feel relaxed from the exam pressure if you appear early. But, still if you need any suggestion, ask your query by the comment section below.

Hopes Beyond IIT

Students of 10+2 mathematics are crazy about IIT. May be you are one of them too who desperately want to be a part of IIT. But, let me tell you. There is life other than IIT which can be as good as a life with IIT.

Here, I’m giving list of some institutes which can be said as alternative for IIT. This list covers those institutes where students of PCM 12th pass can apply. Some of these are very much around or better than IIT. Have a look:

  1. SCRA:
    Special Class Railway Apprentice (SCRA) aka Railway Engineering is an examination conducted by UPSC for selecting candidates suitable for engineering department of Railway. It is a very royal job with large prospects. It is also the toughest exam at 10+2 level. There are just around 10 vacancies each year. Still lot of people sits for its exam. Also, your salary will start just after passing this exam. It is the dream course.
  2. ISI:
    Indian Statistical Institute (ISI) is a very old institute of mathematics, statistics, economics and computer science. It is best institute in India for Statistics and Mathematics and second best for Economics (after DSE). The pass-outs from this institute are very much in demand all over world. Placements are better than even IIMs. Above all there are no fees. Instead handsome stipends each month are given to the students. This in my sense is best alternative for IIT. Obviously, many students come to this institute after getting top ranks in IIT JEE. Some leave IIT after getting top ten ranks for ISI.
  3. CA:
    For mathematics branch students, CA is not the prime choice. Those who opt for CA after 10+2 with mathematics basically, if they don’t get selected somewhere for engineering. But, CA should not be just seen as a degree for commerce students. Mathematics students have high chances to do better in this course. CA aka Chartered accountant is the high earning job. You may work in a company or set-up your own company for auditing accounts. It is just like law. Every company needs service from a CA. As economy is booming and CA course is tough. This sector will be in more demand than else.
  4. Actuarial:
    Actuarial is something very much of same nature as CA. But, have more importance than CA. In India this course is conducted by India Actuarial Society. It is a new field in India. But, demands are very high all over world, not just in India. This course is not for everyone. Only sharp minded people are taken for this course. Basic requirement is mathematics as a subject in 12th with 75% for 10+2 students. 75% marks in mathematics just say the requirement needed for being an actuarial. The most important point, you may study for other course with this. Like engineering or graduation. In fact, if some of your course match with the course of Actuarial. You don’t have to write the exam twice. Your regular course marks are accepted by Actuarial society.
  5. NID:
    National Institute of Design (NID) is not a very common name among general students. But, it is a very popular name among those who know even a little about design, graphics or creativity courses in India. This is the best institute to learn about designing. One may just think the need of the students from this institute in market.
  6. NDA:
    National Defense Academy (NDA) is a very popular exam at 10+2 level. But, popularity of engineering has lowered the no. of quality students for this exam. Yeah, through this exam you may not earn handsome money after NDA. Also, course is physically a bit tough. But, yeah, the proud to be a soldier of India can never be compared with money. Students now a day seek fun and entertainment during course. That fun is not here. But, still here you will get adventure, high esteem and position in society. Pay is not good. But, perks are good. Overall, those who don’t want to traditional, boring corporate jobs can join Indian Army through this course.
  7. NIFT:
    National institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) is a popular brand name. The course here attracts those who want to go in glamor life. No doubt this course needs creativity. Without creativity, you may not perform well. But, yeah this is a high paying and booming sector in India.
  8. NLSIU:
    National Law School of India University (NLSIU) is the best institute in India for Law. As economically, India is developing rapidly. Lots of MNCs are coming each year in India. All of them need law personnel. But, students in India are crazy about engineering and management. Other courses don’t get the best quality. So is the case with NLSIU. Students getting here are good but not the best. So, exam is easy to crack with little effort. But, the money after this course is very good.
  9. IIIT:
    Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) is a project of Indian government to satisfy the demand of IT professionals in India with quality candidates. Courses here are mainly related to IT or computer science. Seats are few in number. But, competition is not as much as for IIT. Some of IIT conduct separate exam. Some take students from AIEEE. This is best course for computer related if you don’t get selected in IITs or few NITs.
  10. NIT:
    National Institute of Technology (NIT) is institutes which were earlier known as Regional Engineering College. These colleges are good, reputed, and old and get good placements too. Earlier, students get admission in these colleges via state engineering examination. Students were not evenly balanced in sort of quality than sorting on the basis of state. Also, as students can’t aim at these institutes directly. Hence, these colleges could not make such a reputation as an IIT. These are premier institutes but not the popular ones. These institutes have infrastructure and all sort of facility to produce best engineers. But, they don’t get the best students.
  11. CMI:
    Chennai Mathematical Institute (CMI) is one of the best institutes in India for Mathematics and Physics. This institute has gained much reputation in very less time. No doubt for research preference this could be on top of your list.
  12. NSHM:
    (NSHM) is the best institute in India for Hotel and Hospitability management. This institute gives you high prospect for success with growing demands of Hospitability in India.
  13. Merchant Navy:
    Merchant navy is a high paying job. It is course for become a crew member of a ship. The best institute in this field is TS Chanakya which takes students through IIT JEE. But, it has a separate selection process. Other institutes of Merchant Navy also have the same prospect. No doubt if you want to earn real money, Merchant navy should be the best choice.
  14. IISER/NISER:
    Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) and National Institute of Science Education Research (NISER) is a project of government to satisfy the scientist need of India. This is a full government funded institutes. You will get handsome stipends to study here. Future prospect is also good. Students from here can easily get admissions anywhere in the world for higher education. Also, prospect in India is good. Scientist are in demand everywhere. Government is thinking to open research gates for private owners in India. So, students from these institutes will be in High demand in near future.
  15. Aeronautics:
    Aeronautics is a high paying field. In India, this sector is on boom and is expected to need three fold more professionals in coming 10 years. Best institute to get in this field is some IIT where this course is taught. Like IIT Kanpur. But, there are other institutes too who can give same prospects as aeronautics from IITs. These are IIA Group of Institutions. Know more about it here.

On the whole, if you look closely at the list above. These are the best institutes of their respective fields. Hence, we could conclude easily each field which have high prospect can come in the list above.

Also, Keep this in mind nearly every field is open for mathematics students (except medical). So, not just IIT should be your prime stop. You may go to any of these and become successful. Some will give you high reputation and some will give you high money. Some even both. But, try to think beyond IITs. There are hopes beyond IIT.

Note: I’ll give detail about all these exam in coming future. The details will cover all aspect institute by institute for each class. Stay in touch.

Benefits of Buying a Product Online Through Affiliates

How to help the Promoter of a product?In the recent times, more and more people are buying a product online. Back in 90′s, people are scary to use their credit card for online transactions. But, as the time progresses and confidence level increased, everyone is doing online shopping.

With development of e-commerce, number of websites, blogs have also increase. Most of these are either selling something or promoting something to earn money. However, it might interest you that only close to 0.1 % of webmasters of these websites are actually making money worth a living.

You must have visited several blogs with excellent articles. Your comments, likes and share to social sites like Facebook and twitter are the biggest reward for the blogger. Your comments and shares always give confidence to the blogger to share more such ideas.

Have you ever wonder how they are earning money? They show advertisements or links within the post to a specific product (called affiliate links) to earn a living. Whenever someone clicks on these links and buy a product, the blogger earns commission.

Whenever I buy a product online. I first try to buy it through an affiliate link. I try to look for my friends who might be affiliates of the product. If none of my friends are I try to find some one and try to buy through their affiliate link.

Is it worth the trouble? Why do I do this?

Help others

I’m sure you do a full research before buying a product either online or offline. Once, you are certain about your product. You can go directly to the webpage and buy the product. However, if you use an affiliate link to buy the same, cost to you would be absolutely same. However, someone else would earn some money which the seller is willing to pay.

For me there is no loss, I’m paying exactly same amount as I was earlier. However, without paying directly I’m donating money to someone. Someone is getting some extra money.

Actually this is not some sort of charity. The blogger whose affiliate link I’m using is already devoting his time to advertise the product. I’m just rewarding his labor.

Discount

Many products have discount coupons. The bloggers or advertisers use these coupons to attract customers. I have made this habit for searching an affiliate link as most of the time I get 5 % or 7.5 % discount. It is very easy to get these discount coupon at an advertiser’s page.

Special Bonus

Sometimes Bloggers give rewards for using their affiliate links. It might be free eBook, access to some special section or something else. Any how you are getting something free.

Company is Anyhow Rich

Whether you are purchasing a product directly or through an affiliate link. The company who is selling the product is going to earn handsome money. You might be amazed to know that in 2005 Google was paying $ 1.00 for every installation of Mozilla Firefox through their affiliate link. Even-though Google pay handsome payouts to its affiliate. The company grew and in fact this campaign help Google grow. As every installation of such Firefox browsers have pre-loaded Google toolbar. Either you use an affiliate link or not, once you have decided to buy a product. The company will earn.

What is JEE 2013?

JEE 2013

Confusion Among Aspirants about JEE 2013

The whole structure of the two major engineering entrance exam in India changes for the year 2013. After much debate, meetings and suggestions, finally ministry of human resource & development have come up with a plan to enhance the importance of 12th board. Now, the marks of 12th board will not only be a cut-off, instead it will impact the rank.

The sudden change in the whole pattern of admission have created an ambience of confusion among the aspirants. The terms has changed. AIEEE name is missing from the whole process. And, importantly CBSE is organizing one of the two JEE exams.

Lets go through the details of JEE 2013

JEE 2013: AIEEE becomes JEE (Main) and IIT-JEE becomes JEE (Advanced)

The most important change which is creating highest confusion among the aspirants is modification and alteration in the terminology. The engineering entrance exam AIEEE that CBSE used to conduct has been renamed as JEE (Main). Similarly, JAB which used to conduct entrance exam for IIT known as IIT-JEE has been renamed simply as JEE (Advanced).

In order to correlate both IIT JEE and AIEEE, the bigger brand name JEE has been used for both the exam. However, the structure of examination is nearly unchanged for both the exams.

JEE 2013: Weightage for 12th marks

This is the most important change that MHRD wanted in the IIT JEE for years. However, still nothing has changed if IIT JEE is taken into consideration. But, a lot have change for admission to colleges using AIEEE score.

The major reason which was cited in implementation of weightage to 12th board result was variance in the pattern and marks of all the 12th board examination bodies through out the country. The suggested normalization process was always seen as flawed and was resisted from implementation.

This year only admission to NITs, IIITs and other institute which were using AIEEE ranking earlier is going to get affected by the marks of 12th board. After the result of JEE (Main) and 12th board, a ranking will be given by the CBSE with 60 % weightage to JEE (Main) marks and 40 % weightage to 12th board normalized marks. This ranking will be used for admission to NITs and other engineering college for counseling and admission.

As for the IIT-JEE, 12th board result will not impact directly on the ranking. However, a student is required to be in top 20 percentile of their board. Now, the group of words used by the JEE (Advanced) for this eligibility citeria is “admission will be subject to the condition that the candidates are in the top 20 percentile of successful candidate of their boards”.

The use of percentile is very tricky and confusing. Let me explain. Percentile means % of students below you. Percentile starts from 0 and ends to 100. Hence, a top 20 percentile means a percentile greater than or equal to 80. Here, the use of term successful candidate of their board is a very important part which many might ignore. Let me give you an example to explain its importance.

In a board exam 11 students appear, and to be qualified to get a scholarship one needs to be in top 20 percentile of successful candidate, i.e. percentile of 80 or above. Now, the last student who passes will be on zero percentile and topper will be on 100 %. As one must have solved in Arithmetic Progression, the rest students will be equidistant from each other in percentile from 0 to 100.

Now, if all of them gets marks more than passing marks say 35. Then, the 11th position will get zero percentile, then the next one will be 10 percentile, then 20…so on to 100. And, the student with 80, 90 and 100 percentile will get the scholarship.

Now, if one of them either didn’t appear or fail in the exam and rest passes in the exam. Total no. of successful candidate will reduce to 10. Percentile of each students will be 0, 11.11, 22.22……77.77, 88.88, 100. Now, as only those students will be awarded the award which would get percentile of 80 or above. Only top two student will be awarded the scholarship instead of three.

This is the most interesting aspect of the words used by JEE (Advanced) as their criteria. As we see in the example above, even if the third student from the top didn’t do anything wrong and may be even he get the same marks as before. He was not awarded the scholarship.

Normally, if a student is getting a top 20 % rank in his school, which is a good school of his city. It is to be believed that he will be well within top 20 percentiler of his board. However, it is not certain as the percentile will depend on the no. of students passed. If a board is very tough and a lot of students fail in its exam. Even a change of 5 – 10 % success rate of students will hugely impact in the top 20 percentile list. I’m not scaring you. But, keep this aspect in your mind.

Further, whether you score 80 %, 90 % or 95 % in your board exam, it will not change your AIR in JEE (Advanced), neither it will effect in your branch or college. It will be just a bar which you have to clear by a good margin to remove any uncertainty.

Finally, what should be the average percentage of marks required for top 20 percentile. If your board result is not fluctuating much the answer of this question could be found very easily. Ask your school teacher to assist in analyzing your school’s last five year’s result in board exam. The result of your school’s student would not be a perfect sample for whole board. But, even if your school is a good school in the city, expect the bar marks for top 20 percentile in your school for last five years will be better than overall board’s bar mark.

JEE 2013: Structure of the Whole JEE 2013

The exam pattern of both the earlier exams AIEEE and IIT JEE are unchanged even though the names have changed. Whether it is JEE (Main) or JEE (Advanced), nothing related to the exam they conduct has changed. However, both the exams are now inter-related.

One have to fill the form for JEE (Main) till 15 Dec, 2012. Then, they have to sit for the JEE (Main) exam as earlier. The score for JEE (Main) will be declared by  7 May, 2013. However, ranking for admission in colleges through JEE (Main) will be declared on or before 7 Jul,2013. The 12th board appearing candidates have to submit their 12th board roll no. before downloading the admit card for JEE (Main).

CBSE along with the score of JEE (Main) will also declare the status of those who qualify for appearing in JEE (Advanced). After this to appear in the JEE (Advanced), the qualified candidates are required to register themselves at JEE (Advanced) website between 8 May, 2013 and 13 May 2013. The exam fee has to be paid through challan at SBI branches by 13 May, 2013. The written test of JEE (Advanced) will be conducted on 2 Jun, 2013 and result will be declared by 23 Jun, 2013.

It is advised to make a chronological schedule for all the events.

Summary

One thing has certainly changed with JEE 2013. Earlier, one could have just sat for IIT JEE. However, now even if one wants to write only JEE (Advanced). He has to sit and fill the form for both the exams.

On a whole I would say even though pattern of the exams have not changed. But, the end result and parameters for selection have changed. The effect of 12th marks may not effect much on JEE (Advanced). However, I expect this year the authorities are trying to assess the impact of 12th marks normalization. It is just a test for the normalization process. If everything worked fine, then I expect from next year or so 12th board marks will be taken into consideration for JEE (Advanced) AIR too.

If you find anything that I missed to cover in this article feel free to let me know. I would suggest to spread this article among your friends or share it on facebook for the benefit of every aspirants around you.
