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.

Summer Marketing Tips for Small Businesses

This is a Guest Post through Postrunner by Beth Longware Duff who writes about small business merchant resources. For more information, click here.

Summer will be here before you know it, which means hot times, cool vibes and unique marketing opportunities for small businesses that are versatile enough to take advantage of them. Latch onto the laid-back attitude that prevails this time of year and use it to your advantage to reach out to current and potential customers.

Regardless of where you do business, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) offers the following five strategies to keep it booming right through to the fall:

  1. Take Part in Summer Festivals and Fairs

Everyone loves a good time, so sponsoring or participating in a local community event not only brings you together with customers in an unpressured environment, but it can work wonders for your brand as well by getting your products or services out for all to see. As an active member of your community, you should be familiar with ongoing events and know which would best serve your marketing objectives. Your local Chamber of Commerce is a great resource, as are the local newspaper, community flyers and town website.

  1. Take Your Customers Out

A long-time common practice in the corporate world, small business owners should consider hosting an activity for their valued loyal customers and vendors. A barbecue in the park, chartered fishing expedition or a visit to a nearby attraction, show or sporting event are all outings that they’ll truly appreciate when you’re picking up the tab. Perhaps best of all, customer entertainment expenses are tax deductible as long as there is a clear business purpose for them and business discussions are held at some point during the event. More information about business tax deductions is available from the SBA.

  1. Take Your Business on the Road

By going where the customers are you can extend your reach, supplement your revenue and increase your brand recognition. Running a concession at sporting events, local carnivals and festivals and other tourist attractions can help you make the most of the summer season, and it’s easier than ever with mobile and wireless solutions that make accepting credit cards quick, easy and secure no matter where the sales occur.

  1. Sponsor a Contest

Everyone loves the chance to win something for nothing, and contests are a great way to raise your visibility in the community and gain publicity. Get your employees involved by asking for their contest ideas. A few suggestions include a cook-off or eating contest sponsored by a restaurant, a yard makeover by a landscape designer, or a pet show by a groomer or veterinarian. Be sure to make the prize(s) something that’s directly related to your business to keep customers coming in after the competition, and promote your contest with a blend of traditional and new media—and don’t forget to post the name and picture of your winner(s)!

  1. Dress Up Your Website

It’s advisable to update your company website on a regular basis to keep it fresh and to showcase your newest products and services. Some summer graphics and seasonal content are simple adds that keep your site relevant to your customers.

Make this summer a memorable one for your business and your customers, and have a little fun while you’re at it!

How To Get The Best Out Of Content Writers To Make Your Website Engaging

Developing web content is completely different from general writing techniques, or writing for the print media. The job requires specific linguistic skills and expertise, and a basic awareness of the important SEO considerations. If you wish to reach out to all your targeted potential clients over the web, smart and engaging content can be one of your best allies, along with user-friendly website design schemes. How can you get the best from the content writers in your business? Let’s take a look:

Train and motivate

Once you have a team of content writers, make sure that they are provided with adequate training. This is particularly important if the majority of them are fresher. Provide them with in-depth insights about the different types of content that are written for the web, like article submissions, guest blog posts, press releases and website content. Smart techniques to search for information online is also something the writers should be made aware of.

Give them a clear idea of what is required from them

Does your client require American English for his/her project, while your content developers are used to writing in British English? Stay away from such probable mismatches, and inform the writers about all the project details, before they start working on them. Just like revisions in website development techniques, re-writing the same pieces of content can be problematic!

Ask them to work in collaboration with the SEO managers/marketing team

Content writers should always be encouraged to interact with the SEO managers and marketers within the company. Ask the managers to provide clearly defined topic themes to the writers, along with the desired word counts, and the keywords to be targeted. If a specific promotional tone is required in the content, inform the writers about the same from beforehand.

Encourage content writers to be creative

Just like your web design & development plans, content writing can also be really catchy and creative. Remember that, unless people find the content on your pages interesting, they will simply flip over to a competitor’s website. Make sure that the creative streak in the style of writing of the content developers is never lost. The content should have the ideal combination of information-richness and imaginativeness. Everyone has information – your website should have it presented in the best way!

Formatting is important

Your CMS website design services might be top-notch, but the bounce rates might still remain high – simply because the content writers are coming up with large chunks of (albeit informative) content. Help them understand the significance of creating properly formatted, scannable text content. The content writers should be using header tags, bullet points and lists, to neatly segregate the different sections of the web content. Learn more about content formatting tips here.

Give them achievable targets

Content writers are supposed to be creative, have a large vocabulary, and quick enough as well. Do not stress too much on the last quality, however, which can compromise the qualitative aspect of the web content. Provide them with rational, achievable targets, and make the writers a part of this decision-making process. If the writers are not pressurized, they will definitely deliver better.

Payments

Even the most dedicated worker can lose his/her enthusiasm in the absence of adequate compensation – and content writers are no exception either. Determine the compensation package of the writers, according to their skill levels and years of experience. Financial motivation can spur on the content writers to operate at their most efficient levels.

Content writers are vital cogs in the overall online operations of your business. Prepare a team of qualified and creative content writers, who would be able to develop web content of all types. When your website design is nice, and the content is fresh, informative and interesting – your business will definitely find greater recognition.

How to Prepare for JEE 2013 After Appearing for 12th Board:Part 1

Prepare for JEE 2013

Prepare for JEE 2013: Time to Work Harder

The restructuring of AIEEE and IIT JEE in 2013 is creating a lot of confusion among the minds of aspirants. It is very important to clear all the confusion. Read my article What is JEE 2013 to clear all your doubts.

Prepare for JEE 2013: Introduction

You should know that to prepare for JEE 2013, the time after 12th board is very precious. It should be utilized in the optimal way to get the best result. The time period is very short and its optimal utilization will guarantee the best rank that you are capable to achieve by giving your best shot. And, you have to give your best shot.

This time period of almost 70 days is going to decide your career’s fate. You will be among elite group of the society or average. All will depend on your performance in these 70 days. Hence, it is very important to take a systematic approach to maximize the chance of giving your best performance.

Prepare for JEE 2013: For Whom

I’m writing this article for those aspirants of JEE 2013 who are appearing for 12th board and afterwards planning to appear for both JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced). This article will not address preparation for paper 2 of JEE (Main) or aptitude test of JEE (Advanced). It will be published in two parts; first part will be about preparation for JEE (Main). Second part will address JEE (Advanced) preparation. Keep almost 15-20 different sets of simulator tests for both JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced). However, before going in detail please go through my article, Most Suitable date for JEE (Main) Online Test.

Prepare for JEE 2013: First Learn Concepts

Some years ago, I had written an article, How to prepare for IIT JEE. The article described three step for IIT JEE preparation. Even though a lot has changed since then in the format of JEE, still first two step are well enough for JEE (Advanced) preparation. I would suggest you go through the article.

I have always told the aspirants of JEE that you don’t need to prepare for the type of the questions asked. You just need to get yourself to the level of knowledge required for IIT JEE. Preparation for a particular type of question  could be done within 20 days.

IIT JEE always keeps changing. Since 2000 I am following it. Every next year there were few changes with respect to previous years. Level of question changed, pattern changed, type of questions changed. This year even the name changed to JEE (Advanced). But, style never changed. IIT always asks tricky questions. An IIT JEE aspirant of year 2000, can appear for the paper of year 2012 and get the same rank, just by preparing for not more than 10 + 20 days (10 days for going through major addition in the syllabus in 2003).

My point in all this is to get the knowledge of every portion of the syllabus before board exam. After board, just prepare for the question type asked in JEE both Main & Advanced. Any question whether, it is asked as subjective or objective is solved in the same way, just presentation of the answer differs. Hence, know how to solve any problem. Adapting according to the requirement of the presentation is not a hard task.

Prepare for JEE 2013: 12th Board is Over

Now, lets proceed to know how to be ready for JEE (Main) once 12th board exam is over. For JEE (Main) or AIEEE, I always feel it is an examination to test your speed rather than intelligence. There would be hardly any tricky questions that would be asked in its exam,. All would be formula based (or memory based). However, JEE (Advanced) or IIT JEE tests your intelligence rather than speed. Moreover, syllabus of JEE (Main) is almost same as that of 12th board. Hence, if someone has prepared well enough for 12th board, he/she could perform well in JEE (Main) after a preparation of 15-20 days.

As I have already told you through my article Most Suitable date for JEE (Main) Online Test, I feel JEE (Main) should be taken online rather than paper based and you should choose the most suitable slot to maximize your performance for both JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced).

Now, once your board exam is over, take a break of one day and do full-day-night fun. This will totally refresh your mind from the stress of 12th board exam. As per CBSE board, I think the last exam for science stream students would be on 23rd March. It is advised to keep a gap of 15 days between the last day of 12th board exam and JEE (Main) test date. I suggested 10th April, 2013 as the most suitable date to appear for JEE (Main). Hence, those who are going to appear for CBSE board would be getting around 15-16 days for preparation of JEE (Main). After refreshing your mind, we are going to use the simulator tests that I have asked you to collect. It would be better if at least 7-10 simulator tests are computer based.

Step 1 (4-5 day):

Now, initially you need to use the paper based tests. For the first 5 days, start solving the simulator test by using all books, notes and all other means available. But, don’t go through the solution before attempting and possibly solving all the problems. Once you attempted all the questions. Check your answers and if any answer went wrong even after using all possible means. Try to understand where was the problem. Time should not be a factor. However, complete one test in one day.

This process will not be an easy one. On the first 2-3 days, it will take away all the energy. But, if done with concentration and dedication. It will work like anything. If one would go through the questions asked by the AIEEE, one can understand that the questions asked by AIEEE are formula based and could be solved easily if formula is known. This step would help you to know and memorize the formula based on the questions which are being asked by AIEEE. Further, it will revise you the syllabus in accordance with JEE (Main) syllabus. You would know the method for approaching a particular type of problems asked. It would be best if you use past years question paper for this step as simulator test. This will benefit you in the best way, as you will learn, what is asked and exactly how to solve them.

Step 2 (6-7 days):

Once you completed step 1, you would be well versed with the question types asked in AIEEE and how to solve them. I expect it would be almost 10 days left for the JEE (Main).

In this step and next, you have to learn how to attempt the questions in a time bound manner. How to manage and approach the test to score maximum? Both speed and accuracy is important. For the next 9 days sit for the test in the same time schedule in which your JEE (Main) test is. It will help your body to get used to the schedule, so that you won’t fill any physical stress on the final day. It would be best if you attempt the tests on table and chair. I recommend to use the computer based test for both this and the final step. If you don’t have so much computer based tests. Last step should be totally using computer based tests. Rests should be used for this step, along with paper based tests.

For the first 6-7 days, solve the question in the stipulated time schedule. Once the test is over, calculate your marks. Now, take a break of around 1 hour. Afterwards, first try to solve incorrect answers and try to figure out, where you made the mistakes. Next, try to solve the unattempted questions. If you gave the test in first half, then try to solve the unattempted and incorrect ones by the end of the day. If you solve it in second half, try to do so by the next day first half. If you need to refer some books or notes, do so. This whole process will improve your latency and no. of questions attempted.

Step 3 (3 days):

Till now, you would be totally stressed with the heavy workout, I suggested in the first two steps. Now, for the last 3 days, you need to give relaxation to your mind. Out of these 3 days, for the first 2 days, solve the test in the normal schedule as per your JEE (Main) timing. Check your score. But, no need to do the whole other workouts. Its time to relax. Watch TV. Play some games. If you want, for an hour or so, revise the formulas and other things which needs to memorized. But, take no stress. All of us commit errors while solving. However, it is minimized if the stress on the mind is less. The success rate of your attempted questions, makes a huge difference in the score.

I prefer the last day before the exam to be free from any study. Don’t worry. If you don’t solve the test for one day, it will not deteriorate your score. But, it will give your mind some peace. You may spend some time to memorize the formulas. Don’t spend time just watching movies or TVs or just playing games. As doing one thing for long hours will give stress to your mind. Go meet your friends. Spend some time with them. Eat healthy food and sleep at usual time.

On the final day. I expect you will be fully ready to appear for JEE (Main) and give your best shot.

If you have any doubts or queries regrading how to prepare for JEE 2013, feel free to ask. The second part of this article will be published in near future. Keep visiting.
