SET: An Alternative to NET for Aspiring Teachers

Aspiring teachers who could not clear UGC NET 2018, now have an alternative to the examination. A state level examination named State Eligibility Test (SET) will be conducted by all states separately, to test the eligibility of candidates who wish to apply for the post of assistant professor in colleges and universities in their states.

Prof Ved Prakash, the Chairman of University Grants Commision (UGC) declared that all state governments should conduct SET in their respective states. The same will act as an additional platform to candidates who do not qualify in UGC NET 2018.

This step is taken by UGC to promote education in the country. Former Chief Minister of Punjab, Mr. Parkash Singh Badal is keen on opening UGC constituent colleges in Punjab. However, other state governments have not shown any interest in this scheme yet.

Mr. Ved Prakash has informed that two-thirds of the colleges that are to be established under this scheme will be funded by UGC. There has been a growing demand for autonomous status by many colleges but UGC claims that it will be granting the status to only those colleges which fulfill the specified set of conditions. Maximum number of such colleges have sprouted in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

With increase in the number of colleges and expansion in education facilities, it is important to employ skilled teachers who will in-turn work to improve the quality of education. The same will enable the students to have a shot at better employment opportunities after they graduate from their respective colleges.

Maharashtra state government recently declared that MH SET will be conducted by University of Pune in the month of January. Punjab state government conducts Punjab SLET (State Level Eligibility Test) in the month of August. Similarly, many other states have started with SETs, making it easier for aspirants to get selected for the post of lecturers in colleges and universities within the states.

This type of model is already followed in Teacher Eligibility cum Entrance Test (TETs) and starting with SETs will not only be a good idea, but will also reduce the pressure faced by the candidates when they appear for national level examinations. It opens up more opportunities for them even if they are unable to clear other exams like CTET 2018 or UGC NET 2018.

The educational qualification for SET is very similar to that of NET. Those who wish to appear for these tests must have acquired their Master’s degree or equivalent postgraduate diploma from an institution recognized by UGC. The minimum qualifying percentage for their post-graduation is 55% for General category candidates and 50% for SC/ST//PH/VH candidates. Those candidates who have appeared or will appear for the qualifying examination during their final years or those candidates who are waiting for their results can also apply for the exam.

However, candidates will be granted provisional admission for SET and will need to complete their postgraduate degree or diploma examination within two years from the date of the declaration of results for SET. Failing to do so will result in being disqualified. The examination will have objective type questions and the syllabus will be similar to that of nationalized eligibility tests. Candidates can apply for SET through the official website of the examination.

Why are States Resisting NEET?

National Eligibility cum Entrance Test was first introduced in 2012 by CBSE and Medical Council of India as a single entrance exam for admissions into MBBS and BDS courses offered by the medical colleges across the country. However, due to all the repercussions around the test, it was delayed by a year and was at last conducted in May 2013, for the very first time.

Subscribe Here for More Such Updates on NEET

The rationale behind introducing the exam was to make the whole process more transparent and streamlined, so that unfair practices being conducted by some private players and corrupt sections could be stopped. But, many institutes opposed this new mechanism of admissions and more than 100 petitions were filed against the test. After hearing the petitioners, the Supreme Court announced that the test was unconstitutional and NEET was scrapped. This was done citing the reason that admission to educational institutes should be a matter under decision of the institutes/states themselves, rather than that of centre.

However, NEET was reintroduced in May, 2016 and the test restored itself back as the single entrance examination for medical admissions. In the same year, the test was conducted twice, so that the candidates who missed the test due to all prevailing confusions could secure admissions. The Supreme Court ruled out the pleas of state government and private institutions to conduct a separate exam, thus giving monopoly to NEET.

Tamil Nadu’s stand against NEET

Although the test is being opposed by many states including West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat and Maharashtra, the prime mover state has been Tamil Nadu. It has been speaking against this central testing system right from the introduction of its very idea.

In Tamil Nadu, the admissions (before NEET) were generally done on the basis of marks secured by candidates in Class 12 boards. Even when the state had an entrance test for admissions during 2005-06, marks secured by candidates in their board examination were still considered and carried certain weightage.

The state has been particularly concerned about other states’ students taking away seats from local students in Tamil Nadu’s institutes. Speaking on the matter, AnbumaniRamadoss, leader of PMK said,” We will spend out people’s money, build quality institutions. You will come from other states, take away seats under NEET, study and go back to your own state. Why should we run such institutes and spend our people’s money on you?”

Other concerns and objections regarding the introduction of a single, centralized test included:

Education is a State Subject, not Centre’s

One major reason for opposing NEET is letting states and private institutions have more autonomy on their admission process. The line of reasoning behind this is that if state government or private person is building a college or institute and is spending its time, money and effort on it, then why should not it control its admission process as well.

Even in 2013, the test was ruled out as it infringed upon the right of states to controleducation. The similar line of reasoning still continues in states.

Difference in Syllabus

NEET is conducted by CBSE and thus, it is heavily skewed towards CBSE syllabus. There are differences between syllabi notified by regional boards and that by CBSE, makingit advantageous for those studying under CBSE.However, people in favour of exam say that it is based on NCERT and not on CBSE.

The Language Barrier

Most students studying under regional boards study in regional language, and are unable to perform well in Hindi/English paper. NEET is mostly dominated by candidates appearing for the exam in either in English or Hindi, which makes it difficult for candidates from vernacular backgrounds to ace the exam.

Until last year, the paper was conducted in 10 different languages, which included regional languages as well. But the question papers in regional languages were different from those in English, and many candidates found that the regional question papers were of higher level of difficulty than English language paper. This incident gave the issue new heights and the protests increased further.

But in a recent announcement, it has been made clear that all the papers will be a mere translation of English language’s paper, and thus no difference in level of difficulty will be there.

School grades are a better benchmark

Another reason put forward by states is that the performance of a candidate in board exam is a better benchmark, rather than a single day test. Since a candidate works hard for a whole year to secure good well in Class 12, why have an additional test to test him/her further.

Also, if the candidate is unable to perform well on that particular day, it can ruin his/her dream of getting into his desired institute. Tamil Nadu has been providing admissions on the basis of Class 12 scores and has maintained quality education in its institutes, proving that things can be done well without NEET as well.

Many of the arguments made by states are definitely worth considering. It is always difficult for state board student to quickly adapt himself or herself to this highly competitive NEET environment.

Also, the role played by coaching institutes is also debatable. Many candidates who do not perform well in 12th boards are doing well in NEET just because they have joined a coaching centre. It becomes a little unfair to those students who work hard for two years to score well in boards. Also, since many rural aspirants cannot afford coaching due to economical and logistical constraints, cracking NEET is also becoming a game of the rich.

MCI and CBSE are making changes in NEET to make the exam as fair and neutral as possible. Will it turn out to be a defining move for country’s medical education standards, this question still remains unanswered.

Various Online Platforms to Accelerate JEE Main Preparation

Online platforms have become popular among students preparing for various entrance exams such as JEE Main and NEET. A lot of students now opt for the online exam medium due to its various conveniences and thus online preparation seem to be a better option to get familiar with the online mode and paper pattern ofJEE Main.

A lot of the online study material is prepared by IIT experts, and sometimes by IITians themselves. This ensures that the online content is relevant and of high quality, as the one creating it would be familiar with all the traditional study material and content.

In addition to the above points, by far the biggest advantage of online preparation is the flexibility that it offers. Online material is always available at the click of a button, with some applications allowing the option to download it beforehand, so that material is available offline whenever you need it. There is no crowd to distract you from your studies, no time limit for how long or when you want to study, and nobody will yell at you for having a snack in the middle of a lecture.

In case there is a doubt that needs to be answered, or if you are in need of some personalized advice, you can have live chat sessions with experts that are almost always on standby, offering help and tutoring anyone who so desires.

JEE Main study material would also offer countless practice/mock tests, along with past years’ question papers. The practice material holds immeasurable value and as such should be always had in a deal. As the practice tests and question papers are delivered immediately to your phone, tablet and computer, it makes much more sense to have them online. Even the evaluation of the said tests would be faster as they are checked via software, which completes the task almost instantaneously.

Online Apps

Online study apps offer a complete study package for the students preparing for IIT JEE and other such competitive examinations. It provides free access to a plethora of study content, usually for free. Thus, they make a great alternative to traditional study methods.

Various apps such as IIT JEE Main and JEE Advanced 2018, AskIITians, Aakash iTutor, Khan Academy, Toppr and Prep-Lane offer online study material, along with the option to download it, so that it can be used later.

Aakash iTutor goes a step further by including Aakash Coaching institutes’ huge collection of books and other study materials to students for a little premium. Other than that, all these apps feature 24×7 technical support for students, in case someone has a doubt or needs a more personal touch regarding a few questions. Experts are almost always available at the click of a button.

Some premium apps also feature different online test series for JEE Main and Advanced which a student can attempt to practice the paper as per the pattern of the real examination. It should be noted that premium apps usually also have free versions, but the latter is filled with adds. Having advertisements pop up mid-lecture could be a little annoying, but it is nothing close to a deal breaker.

YouTube Channels

YouTube is a free-to-use video sharing platform. In the recent years, a lot of content creators have turned to YouTube to build a platform for themselves. If you aren’t familiar with how to use YouTube for studying purposes, the easiest explanation is this; go to youtube.com, search for the keywords you want (in this case, it would be JEE preparation), and then click on one of the options that appear below. You can also reach out to a creator for any query regarding anything through the comment section or YouTube’s messaging service.

Channels such as Any Time Padhai Academy, a Kota based online study material and content provider, aims to provide quality content in the form of short video lectures exclusively for JEE. They provide Kota’s famed classroom level education to each student through online teaching methods. Other YouTube channels such asToppr, COACHengg, BYJU’S JEE and Etoos Education aim at providing efficient and effective study material that helps students prepare for both their classes as well as competitive exams such as JEE, NEET and NTSE. These channels have high-quality video lectures for you to choose from.

Then there are also channels such as Delhi Knowledge Track, i.e., channels that create bilingual content, in both Hindi and English, thus bringing the knowledge, which was previously limited to the confines of classroom, into the reach to the masses, absolutely free of cost.

The best feature about learning from a video lecture is that you can pause and rewind at any moment if you feel like, or if there is a step that you didn’t quite understand. The attention to detail coupled with the quality of content makes YouTube a great platform to prepare for JEE.

Mock Tests

Mock tests are perhaps the most important ingredient in JEE preparation. All JEE aspirants should practice with online mock tests to check their level of preparation, get familiar with the exam pattern and witness the exam-like situation, such as working in a time limit. Familiarizing yourself with the real world conditions of the exam will go a long in preparing you for the exam.

Websites such as gradeup.co, eduwhere.in, aglasem.com, etoosindia.com and online test series.in offer a huge collection of online mock tests that mirror real JEE exam. They are the best tools for any candidate to prepare for not only JEE but any entrance exam.

To practice on a mock test, simply go to any of the websites or apps that offer mock tests, and then click on the option that says “Mock test”, “Practice test” or any synonym of these. After clicking on it, you shall be redirected to the mock test portion of that website. Click on “begin” to start the test. A timer will be provided to you for keeping track of either the elapsed or remaining time. Proceed with the test as normal. After completion, the page will display your score. Depending on which website you use, there might also be statistics relating to how well others have performed in a similar test and where you would stand among them.

With the online preparation courses gaining popularity, it makes a lot of sense for you to take the leap into the digital world of studying. Mobile apps, YouTube channels, online mock tests, all help students achieve their aim of clearing JEE, albeit without the inconvenience of stepping out of their house and wasting time in traveling. If you are still shy about trying online study methods, don’t be. Remember, it’s usually free of cost, so even if you’re already using traditional means for studying, you can just use the online material in your spare time.

How to Start JEE Main Preparation from 10th Grade

JEE is completely based on the syllabus of Class 11 and 12. For JEE, most of the students start their preparation during their Class 12 or take a gap after 12th. While there is no problem in doing that, but one can always start early and crack the exam a bit more smoothly. And that is why many candidates start as early as in Class 10th or 9th.

Check Here for JEE Main Exam Pattern

When you are starting early, your plans need to be a bit different from others. Let’s discuss why you should start from Class 10th and how you can go on managing your school with JEE preparation.

Why start early?

The first question that comes in mind of aspirants is, “Why should I start so early. I have 3 long years ahead, I can do it later as well.”

Well, we do not doubt your potential at all, but realize that the competition is literally huge. Starting early is only going to be beneficial. Here are some specific reasons why you should start early.

You Will Get an Edge Over your Peers. Well this is quite obvious. If you are putting in more time, you will definitely get an edge over others. By starting early, you are making sure that you do not have to make sudden shift from ‘only school life’ to ‘school + JEE life’. Thus, by getting early into the arena, you will get a definite edge over your peers.

You Will Get Time to Understand the Exam Better. By being introduced to the exam early, you will be able to better understand the exam. You can watch analysis of actual papers, talk to your seniors, faculties and to people who have cracked this exam. This acquaintance with JEE will prove very beneficial for you.

The Journey Will Get Smoother. When candidates start JEE preparation, they generally have to make a big shift in their time table. This is because they start late and due to the huge syllabus (and of course, competition), they have to work really hard. So they have to give up sleep, outings, movies and all such things. But if you start early, you can do all these things along with heading towards your dream of being anIITian. 

You Will Get More Time to Refer to Secondary Books. NCERT books are the most preferred and recommended books for JEE. While they are very good, but one has to move forward to advanced books as well to secure better scores in the exam. Now what happens with most of the candidates is that due to limited time, neither they are able to do the NCERT books properly, and nor any other book. But if you start from class 10, you will get enough time to go through all kinds of books that are there. Therefore, you can make sure than you do not leave any stone unturned in your preparation.

In Class 10 – What to do?

When you begin your preparation during class 10 or 9, you have got to have a different plan from others. So what needs to be done? Let’s find out:

Focus on Basics: – Class 10th is an important phase of life. Although JEE Main Syllabusis primarily based on Class 11thand 12th, we study some very basic chapters like Chemical Reactions, Acids and Salts and Periodic Classification in class 10th. These chapters are very important and if you get them properly, they can raise your confidence immensely. So do the basics well.

Participate in Competitions: – In this phase, you can take part in various Olympiads, scholarship tests and other competitions that boost your confidence and strengthen your profile. More importantly, you will learn how to face and ace the competition. Some of the exams that you can opt for are NTSE, KVPY, NLSTSE, Indian National Olympiad, Science Olympiad Foundation and GeoGenius.

Join a Foundation Course: – There is always an option of joining a foundation course for JEE as well. A foundation course at a quality coaching institute will make it easier for you to grasp the concepts and get better later on. Many reputed coaching institutes of the country like AskIITians and McGraw Hill Education provide such courses and you can opt for such courses if you want.

Your primary goal should be to score good in Class 10. When you are done with school study in the evening, you can shift to JEE preparation. Also, if you have joined any coaching classes (foundation course), do not miss them.

Remember that NCERT is the best source of preparation and you should solve them by heart.

How to Study From Class 11 Onwards?

From Class 11, you have to be a bit more dedicated towards JEE than Class 10. The study time, practice and focus should increase a little bit more as you are moving closer to your actual test. Let us take a look at the things you need to take care during these days.

If You Have Joined a Coaching Institute: If you have joined a coaching institute, the job is a little bit easier as the ‘guidance’ part is already taken care of. The only thing that you need to do is that you need to attend the classes regularly and solve the question that teacher gives you. Remember that you need to cover your school homework as well, so schedule things properly.

Another benefit of joining coaching is that you get explanation of concept from two places, one from school and other from coaching institute’s faculties. Since you are getting this privilege, make sure that you do not let it go in vain.

Basically, your approach should be first attend the school properly. After coming back from school, you can have a little rest and can move to your coaching classes. Make sure that you stay tentative in the class and listen properly. After your coaching classes, you should first complete your school homework and then any assignments/questions given by tutors. Also, make sure that you get enough breaks in between to keep yourself energized.

 

If You Haven’t Joined Any Coaching Institute: – If you preparing by yourself, then you do need to be a little more disciplined and streamlined in your approach. Since you are preparing from past 1 year, we assume that you already know what the syllabus is.

Now what you need to do is that you need to take classes in school very seriously. Since this is going to be the primary and most probably the only source of learning the concepts, you should not take any chance with this.

So when you come back home from school, the first focus should be on completing all the pending work from school. After completing that, you need to take a little break and start working for JEE. You can revise what you learned from school and start solving Multiple Choice Questions based on that. In case you find it difficult to grasp any topic, you can use YouTube or any other JEE Preparation Apps to your benefit.

The thing to be worked on in this case is self-discipline. You have to keep yourself on track. Also, do buy some good books like Concept of Physics by HC Verma, Chemistry books by OP Tandon as these are very helpful in preparation.

Things To Be Taken Care of in Both Cases

Whether you have joined coaching or not, you need to take care of some things unconditionally. Here are some pointers which you need to take care of, during JEE preparation:

Take Good Care of Basics: – We have said it earlier as well, and will mention again – you need to be good on basics. Now being good on basics does not mean that you need to go ultra-deep into the topic and spend months on a single chapter. Realize that you are just at the starting stage of your engineering career and you will get the chance to pursue research in the future.

Understand the concepts to the level which is needed at the moment and do not dive down too deep. Understand the ‘time constraint’ part and play smartly.

Make Notes: – Since the period of preparation is going to be long (2-3 years), you cannot rely on your brain to remember the formulae for this long. The thing to trust here is your notebook. Do make all the notes related to all concepts and formulas, as they will come very handy later on.

Also, keep the notes concise and relevant. Noting down every other thing will not serve the purpose.

Take Mocks and Tests: – Whether you are taking coaching or not, we recommend that you must purchase an online test series for JEE. The test series generally include all kinds of tests like mid-syllabus tests, full length tests and topic tests, and thus are an important tool for testing your preparation level. The analysis and solutions of these tests will help you improve further with your preparation.

You can refer to Allen, FIITJEE, AskIITians and other such institutes for mock test series.

Take Benefit of Peer Learning: – Your fellow mates and peers are a great source of learning in every phase of life. So for JEE preparation, do not hesitate to discuss concepts with your friends and classmates. You can talk to your seniors and teachers as well.

Some topics like Chemical Bonding, Molecular Structure, Newton’s Laws and Optics do require a little extra effort to understand at the first instance. If you are facing problems in any such topics, do not mind learning them from your friends.  

Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: – Since the preparation phase is long, you cannot keep on ditching your sleep hour continuously for two years. Therefore, get a healthy sleep of 7-8 hours daily. Involve yourself in sports, yoga or meditation to keep you high on energy. Use your time well.

Consistency is a great quality. If you can be consistent enough to keep studying for JEE from Class 10th, you can probably take on any challenge that comes your way. So stay focused, and prepare well. JEE will definitely not be a tough task after such hard work.

TS EAMCET 2018 : 7 Tips to Ace The Exams

Telangana State Engineering Agricultural and Medical Common Entrance Test (TS EAMCET) is scheduled to be held in the first week of May, 2018. Qualifying candidates get admission into various professional courses at engineering and medical colleges and universities in the state of Telangana. Application forms for the same will be made available in the last week of February. Admission will be made on the basis of results for TS EAMCET 2018, to be declared in the third week of May, 2018 (tentatively).

According to stats, 2.5 lakhs students appear for the examination and around 80% of the students qualify for the admissions. Candidates are expected to put in hours of training and tedious efforts in order to ace the exam. Competition is one parameter which moves on an ever rising graph. In this article, we will be discussing some of the expert tips to help you crack the examination with a good score. By the end of this article you will leave with a better understanding of the examination and quick tips on how to give your best.

Understand the Exam Pattern and Syllabus

Understanding the exam pattern will help you get an idea on how to approach the exam. The duration of the exam is 3 hours. It will consist of three sections- Physics, Chemistry and Maths with 1 hour for each subject. Candidates are to make sure that they do not spend more than 1 hour on each subject.

The syllabus for the examination is similar to that of class 12 board exam for Telangana. The syllabus is released every year by the admission authority. One must refer to it and prepare accordingly keeping their target on obtaining maximum marks depending on their weakness and strengths.

Identify Your Strength and Weakness

It is important for the candidates to do Self-evaluation when it comes to the examination. This will help them to analyze the subjects or concepts they are strong in and the ones they need to work on. Solving papers every day and attempting mock tests will help them with identifying their strengths and weaknesses. The best solution is to read up everything but at the same time focusing more on your weak areas to make sure that these too convert to your strengths.

Practice via Previous Years’ Papers and Mock Tests

This is the oldest yet the best practice which must be followed by all the students. Solving papers from past few years will help them gain a better understanding of the paper pattern, important topics, and time management. Mock tests are to be considered as nothing less than trailers for the main movie. The more you go in for these tests, better will be your chances of scoring well in the main exam.

Make a Schedule

To complete a task successfully, it is necessary to make a plan for it. Prepare a daily schedule to prepare for the exam and stick to it. It is an added benefit if mock tests and other papers are a part of your routine. Allocate time to subjects separately and plan out the study hours very carefully. Make sure you have enough time to rest and freshen up.

Decide on Your Attempting Order

Three hours is a long duration for your brain to keep functioning at the same pace. It goes without saying that the first hour of the exam will be less taxing as compared to the remaining 2 hours. It is wise to choose the subject they you are strong in and attempt it first. This helps in boosting confidence as you will be able to solve questions quickly and effectively.

Manage Time Allocation

Deciding how much time should be dedicated to each section and keeping extra time for revisions works wonders for competitive exams. Missing out on this aspect could cost the students more than expected. An ideal state would be spending 45 minutes for each section and keeping 15 minutes for revision for each section. While solving mock tests or question papers from the past years, candidates should set a time limit to a maximum two and a half hours. This practice will help them immensely during the exam.

All Work and No Play Makes Jack a Dull Boy

While it is unavoidable to dedicate a major part of your day to studies, at the same time it is not to be forgotten that physical activity and relaxation are equally essential. It is important to keep some part of your day for some kind of physical activity or meditation. Eating good food should also be a part of the checklist to boost mental health.

Five tips to study well !

Well, this post aims to provide some study tips. Hufff!! Big task guys ?

Since I believe that sharing is caring so I am sharing these tips with you. So cheesy right? hahaha.

Now before reading ahead be absolutely clear that these tips are definitely helpful in your helpless times. I see students from 12th around me so much into study these days, gives me Goosebumps when I think about my time ?.

Alright fellas enough moving around the bush . Let’s come to business.Here you go –

1) Find yourself a partner – Yes I know difficult to do. But if you find one, it can do wonders. Group study also works the same way because you discuss things and then end up memorizing them without even knowing. That’s the best part of it .Now I wrote finding a partner because if you are lucky enough to find a group with same study motives , Great! Otherwise a good partner will suffice.

2)Keep your phone away – We always try to not use our phone while studying but the temptation is so strong .We can’t help it. So instead my suggestion would be-“Keep the phone at an unreachable place”. Sounds weird but can seriously help.

3)Start with something interesting to prep you up – Not for all homo-sapiens out there but for most, the initial hours when you start studying are the most difficult ones. So my suggestion, start with something simple, something that holds some interest and then go for the highest climb.

4)New stationary also works – Yes yes , as weird as it sounds! Good stationary can at least push you up to use them, indirectly pushing you to study. So invest some pocket money to buy yourself a new pen. Be a stationary hoarder.

5)What kind are you? – There are three types of learners namely kinesthetic, visual and listener. Know your type and work accordingly. Kinesthetic ones can’t sit still. They are in active habit of moving around with the book or studying while listening to music. Like one of my friend in school could not do Math without music playing, weird but true. Visual learners learn better by diagrams, graphs and pictures. You got to do lot of writing and drawing if you fall in this category. Listeners learn by reciting out loud. Listening to an answer from your friend might also help. So know your type and go ahead with it!

All the best !
