This is the biggest problem of all aspirants preparing for competitive examinations like JEE, NEET etc. “The paper comes so unexpected and expecting to complete it in 3 hours, is something rude”. This is what many aspirants thought during the preparation phase. Sometimes the paper comes so lengthy that even after knowing its proper solution, aspirants couldn’t score well because it could not be solved in the time.
Next question that comes to mind is “How do I decide at that moment which subject to do first, which later, which questions to leave and which to attempt later?”. This is a complex situation of choosing what to go for and you don’t have much time to think. Three main things you need to do during preparation are – Practice, Analyse and Gain Experience. Keep practicing papers of previous years. If you are not able to complete the paper, there may be two reasons-First that your solving speed is slow and second your solving speed is fine, but the order in which you do PCB subjects doesn’t suit you.
To solve the speed problem, you can attempt some tests where they give you exact stats of each subject. Like on which subject you are spending more time, which topics are bothering you, etc. That may help you in improving in the areas where your speed is slow.
For solving the second problem, I recommend you to try all the possible orders of solving PCB subjects in your upcoming tests and compare the results. The most famous order of paper solving among medical aspirants – Bio then Chem then Physics, but it depends on individuals. You can start with your favourite subject and end up with a tougher one. Starting with favourite subject help you boost your confidence.
One most important thing – OMR filling! It may seem a small thing, but it is the actual thing that results in all your efforts. Its the image of your efforts and hard work. Try to solve all the questions which you are completely sure of and fill in the options you are confident of. Then, keep doing more complex questions and fill the OMR as you do it. Stay motivated and encouraged and keep practicing and improving.
