Preparation Tips for EAMCET
One month before the examination
- About a month before the entrance exam, start attepting a wide variety of topics to improve your numerical solving ability.
- Focus on objective type questions, both theory and numerical questions and practice as many types of questions as you can.
- Revise all important concepts and formulae, so that they are on your tips and come to you without any effort or thought, be thorough with them.
- Engineering entrance gives equal weightage to all three subjects.
One week before the examination
- Think positively and visualise yourself doing well and reaching your goals.
- Comparing with peers is very dangerous. Concentrate on your performance.
- Calm yourself and take few slow breaths.
- In many cases, most of the questions are repeated questions from old question papers. So thoroughly practice old question papers.
- Make sure you attempt all the questions as there is no negative marking.
- In botany concentrate on morphology, reproduction in angiosperms, cell biology, taxonomic families, plant kingdom, plant physiology (metabolic pathways and intermediate compounds). Always attempt botany first.
- In zoology, stress on rabbit functional anatomy (1,2,3), genetics, annelida, anthropoda, animal association and invertebrate classification. Make a list of all the examples and characters and go through it every time.
- Biology is the scoring subject in EAMCET Medical. A student in average must score 70 marks in biology, 30 marks in chemistry and 25 marks in physics to get government seat.
- Engineering stream students should start with Mathematics only if you are confident enough of solving problems quickly. If not start with Chemistry
- Start with chemistry as it saves time. Concentrate on organic chemistry as 10 to 14 bits are expected from it.Stress on synopsis, formula and conditions of every chapter from Deepthi Series and Telugu Akademi.
- About 60% to 70% per cent of bits are expected from Access yourself columns of Telugu Academy.
- Always attempt physics at the end.
One day before the examination
- Students of your age need atleast 6-8 hours of sound sleep for the brain to work efficiently. So take a good sleep before the examination to keep yourself fresh while solving questions.
- Take a light meal the night before so that you do not feel drowsy or lethargic during the paper.
- Revise only those topics that you have studied earlier. Do not start reading any new topics just before the examination, since this will be a waste of time and you may lose the information you have already grasped.
- You should reach the test center at least an hour before the exam and if you haven't seen the center before, then you must go and visit the center on the day before the exam.
- Choose a corner in the house where there is pin drop silence.
- Never go to the center on an empty stomach. Have something light.
- Due to anxiety, you may have the feeling of nausea, keep a medicine handy.
- Carry a wristwatch to your centre, your admit card, a pen, two pencils, an eraser, a sharpener and other relevant stationery.
On the day of the examination
- Read the General Instructions on your answer script or question paper clearly.
- Keep the admit card ready as the examiner will like to see it when he/ she starts distributing the answer sheets.
- Do not use a red pen.
- Start attempting the question paper only after reading the instructions given on it very carefully.
- While attempting questions, go on segregating them by the A, B, C method, questions which are from topics that you have prepared well, and you can clearly comprehend the meaning of these questions. You have done questions containing similar concept earlier and you are confident that you will be able to solve these. B :You know you can solve these questions but they are time-consuming, however you are confident you will be able to solve or attempt them when you come back to them. These questions should be attempted in the second round of question attempting, i.e. when you have solved all questions marked with a B. C :You don't know head or tail of these questions and you should not waste time attempting them.
- Attempting to solve all questions in a hurry increases the chances of error.
- If you need a diagram to understand questions in physics or coordinate geometry etc., do make one.
- Use the value of constants given in the paper in solving a numerical. If the value is not mentioned, use the one you remember.
- Give all three subjects equal time.
- Never attempt two questions at the same time. Concentrate on one question at a time.
- Carry out all rough work only in the space given in the paper.
- While attempting the answers, do not shade the answer key immediately. Instead, tick your response with a pencil on the answer key.
- Keep marking questions with A, B, C in the first round of solving the paper. All questions should be segregated into one of these three categories. This saves valuable time later.
- Fill out the answer key 30 minutes before final time. Fill out the responses to questions attempted after this directly in the answer key.
- In the last few minutes, fill out all the unattended questions with some random option, preferably a or c for obvious reasons.
