RANKING & SCORING
The candidates who have secured qualifying marks in EAMCET 2014 and candidates belonging to the category of Scheduled Caste and Schedule Tribe, for whom qualifying marks have not been prescribed, shall be assigned ranking in the order of merit on the basis of combined score obtained by giving 75% weightage to the marks secured in EAMCET 2014 and 25% weightage to the marks secured in the relevant group subjects namely Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry of the qualifying examination.
CALCULATION OF MARK IN EAMCET EXAM:
For intermediate weightage:
If a candidate get 580 marks out of 600 marks (only group subjects), his weightage will be calculated as follows:
580/600X25=24.2
For EAMCET weightage:
Total marks of a candidate in EAMCET will be aggregated to 100 and 75% weightage will be calculated from that marks. For example, if a candidate scores 100 marks out of 160 in EAMCET, his marks in EAMCET will be calculated as follows:
100/160X75=46.9
Now both weightages will be added and final rank will be announced accordingly. The calculation will be done as follows:
Total = Inter weightage + EAMCET weightage = 24.2+46.9 = 71.1
Based on this score final rank will be given.
GUIDE LINES TO CRACK EAMCET 2014:
- With EAMCET approaching in a couple of months, students are gearing up to follow few guidelines to relax &overcome stress and concentrate on few important aspects to achieve success in the EAMCET exam.
- Think positively and visualize yourself doing well and reaching your goals.
- Preparation for the EAMCET exams the candidates must have pre planning and should follow a strategy.
- Stop comparing yourself to your peers, concentrate on your own performance.
- Revise thoroughly with the papers of previous exams and grand tests. This helps you understand the pulse of the exam pattern.
- Make sure you attempt all the questions as there is no negative marking.
- About 70-80% of bits are expected from Telugu Academy which all of
- You are accessing on daily basis.
- Since there’s a month’s time before the entrance exam, start getting used to a wide variety of topics to improve the range of numerical you can attempt.
- Keep revising the Formula's every day, which brings you the perfection. Focus on numerical questions and practice as many types of questions as you can.
- Start exam preparation as early as possible so that the candidates can cover all the topics which are taught. Allow space for revision which helps to memorize topics covered so far.
- The candidates, who have started preparation for EAMCET exam, need to manage time in the right manner by allocating the time for each subject in a proper way. And the candidates should make sure that studying too much in a single day can cause a disgusting feeling and they may not feel like studying the next day so divide the time equally for all subjects.
- Visualize everything in a way that all the topics you are going to cover /covered are only asked in exam and nothing Greek and Latin or new is going to come.
- The candidates appearing for EAMCET exam should make sure that they have enough material for each and every topic. Try to read various models of questions appearing in each exam and try to solve more and more problem.
- Remember students,your parents,lecturers,friends and relation will all be waiting as to how you will come out of the exam.It’s your moral responsibility to keep up all their expectations and ensure that you leave no stone unturned and attain best score.
- Painful effort always yields sweet fruits. Soif you are ready for having a sweet fruit, this is the time…show your effort and crack EAMCET with flying colours.
- You have your Lecturers support till the point you are going to attempt the exam,so please do not hesitate to ask any query that’s very long kept on hold .A small point may also prove to important at this time.
- EAMCET candidates should have positive thinking and should be able to visualise themselves doing well at the exam
- Last and not the least your will power, confidence and hard work will pay you .So be it.
DEALING WITH SYLLABUS:
- Concentrate more on the Intermediate IPE syllabus.
- You must be start preparing for the EAMCET right from the Intermediate Ist year itself. As you know, the syllabus for EAMCET includes Ist and IInd year of Intermediate.
- Divide the syllabus into units and start preparation. Splitting things unit wise makes preparation easy&comfortable. At this time don’t go for different types of books. This will kill your time.
- About a month before the entrance exam, start getting used to a wide Variety of topics to improve the range of numerical you can attempt.
- 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.
- Thorough drill down of each topic helps you in identifying your key &weak areas so try to excel in weak areas
- Do not get into new topics and weird thoughts now at this point of time as this may spoil the whole preparation.
- As EAMCET exam is formula oriented , it is very important for the candidates to have command on all the basic formulas and concepts from all the chapters and should concentrate on the intermediate first year syllabus. Knowing formulas is not enough but applying the same in arelated problem is very important.
- While preparing for EAMCET Mathematics exam candidates should practice substitution methods and confirmation methods and also tips and tricks given in all EAMCET materials.
- The EAMCET exam questions are not tricky& that just needs simple basic concepts in each topic to understand. Read each question carefully, sometimes the answers can be identified in the question only without solving the problem.
- The candidates preparing for EAMCET exam should maintain calm and cool mind state. Since they have to cover the entire syllabus, if exam is nearing then never try to learn new topics. Since it makes you loose confidence.
- Assume the exam date for Eamcet has been preponed to 10 days and from then revise the topics covered so far.
- Each chapter has more or less some weightage of marks in exam, identify those and try to giveprority to topics having more weightage and be diligent here.
HOW TO IMPROVE SPEED
Eamcet exam demands the utmost speed of the candidate.The candidate intelligence must be drilled out in the time of the Examination duration.
- Speed and Accuracy are the most important aspects for EAMCET exam. The speed is possible by focusing on shortcuts and direct answers. Sharpness of mind is mandatory for exams that helps in understanding concepts very easily, quickly and can respond to tricky questions.
- Memorize land mark problems/Standard problems. Try to put them on paper& never memorise orally or on mind.
- Remembering standard formulae, concepts so that you can apply them directly.
- Being strong in mental calculations.The more you apply your brain the sharper it turns to be…
- Never use the calculator during your entire preparation, try to do first and second level of calculations mentally, remember as vocalization reduces reading speed, similarly doing calculation on paper reduces the speed.
- Candidates preparing for EAMCET exam should concentrate on Mock Tests which helps to check their mistakes they have done by going through a number of mock tests from previous year question papers, The topics which are same as that in the concepts are to be read at a time s that it lessens the preparation time for the student.
Working with Choices
See all the options and do not go for last digit accuracy unless required by the problem.When you are doing subject wise exercises you can also calculate speed subject wise.
Here we would like to highlight one more point that just good speed is not enough but logically attempting the paper is also equally important.
Strike Rate:
Strike rate means the percentage of correctly attempted questions Strike rate can be improved with the help of intelligent guessing. Intelligent guessing means guessing a question you are not completely sure but have some idea about. Your objective is not to solve the question but choosing the correct option out of the 4 given choices. So always try to eliminate the choices.
Remember that if one choice is eliminated, chances of your guess being right is 33% (in comparison to a blind guess where the chances of being right is 25%) and if two are eliminated the chances of hitting the right answer are 50 %So remember that a good speed or strike rate alone cannot give you success. One without the other is a good way to mess up a potentially good performance. So, what is required is a good combination of both speed and strike rate.
SELECTION OF QUESTION
It is very important to understand what you have to attempt and what you have to leave.
There is a limit to which you can improve your speed and strike rate beyond which what becomes very important is your selection of question.
So success depends upon how judiciously one is able to select the question To maximize your performance you should quickly scan for easy question and come back to the difficult ones later. Always keep in mind that normally questions in any competitive exams can be categorized into 3 areas:
Average type questions |
30 |
Easy and direct calculation type questions |
35 |
Difficult type questions |
15 |
A pie diagram given below can quickly run you through the broad areas of questions covered.
The easy and average questions ensure selection whereas the difficult questions make the merit. You should focus on careful selection of the easy and average questions and avoid difficult questions in the first and second round and come back to them once you have completed the entire paper once.
If you focus on easy and average question i.e. 65 questions, you can easily score 80% marks without even going to difficult question.
Try to ensure that in the initial 2 hours of the paper the focus should be clearly on easy and average question, after two hours you can decide whether you want to move to difficult questions or revise the ones attempted to ensure a high strike rate. Don’t spend much time on difficult questions.

How TO INCREASE Concentration
- Here are some of the bullet points to increase concentration.
- Start practice with a positive attitude toward learning.
- Always start with easy, interesting and important topics. This will give some curiosity and confidence going forward. Do not start preparation with difficult and tough topics.
- Designate a place where you go only to study. Use proper lighting.
- Identify your distractions. Find ways to decrease them likedecrease noises around you while studying. Keep the TV, phone off during the preparation.
- Use "active study" techniques: sit straight in a chair at a desk, start out with questions about the material, outline chapters, underline key phrases after reading section, write notes in margins, ask yourself what you have learned.
- Divide your work into smaller manageable tasks that can be completed in a short period of time. Splitting of work makes study manageable and easy.
- Push yourself to complete one small task, then move on to the next task. Focus on one small task at a time.
- Use times of peak alertness for studying difficult or less interesting topics. When you are tired or hungry concentration will be lowered.
- Take breaks when you have completed tasks or when you feel concentration has decreased. Breaks should be approximately 10-15 minutes.
- If you have other assignments or issues on your mind write them down on a "to do" list or take a small step to deal with them. Then get back to focusing on the task at hand.
Study Time Table:
- A well planned and organized time table as a self-disciplinary action should be set before starting preparation& make sure you adhere to the time table set and are able to finish the scheduled topics in the time lines set.
- Make a realistic time table for your study i.e. the time table should be one, which can be followed. If you have only 6 hours spare for study and you want to devote all those hours for self study or you have made a time table which cannot be followed for a longer time, avoid that.
- Make a flexible time table and schedules for study with some rigidity. For example, if you want to devote 4 hours daily for a particular subject then try to maintain the time of 4 hours every day without fixing a rigid time.
- The time table should be such that it is open to changes with time. After following the time table for few days, if you feel, overall time period or time period for a particular subject are improper then change them according to your requirements.
- Initially, don’t make exhaustive time table for self study. Increase your study timings every week. For example, if you are studying 3 hours in a week, try to increase 15 minutes in first week, 15-20 minutes in next week and so on.
- Things to keep in mind one day before the examination:
- You need at least 6-8 hours of sleep before the examination to keep yourself fresh while solving questions.
- Eat 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.
- Never go to the Examinationcenter 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 exam centre, your admit card, a pen, two pencils, an eraser, a sharpener and other relevant stationary.
Some important points to keep in mind during 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.
- As soon as you receive the question paper do not ponder or run through the whole paper.
- Give a quick glance of the whole paper and start attempting easy questions.
- 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.
- Always attempt physics at the end.
- Try to focus on careful selection of the easy and average questions and avoid difficult questions in the first and second round and come back to them once you have completed the entire paper once or you may mark a guess option.
- Attempting to solve all questions in a hurry increases the chances of committingerror.
- If you need a diagram to understand questions 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.
- 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.
- Fill out the answer key 30 minutes before final time. Fill out the responses to questions attempted after this directly in the answer key.
- Chapter wise analysis in Mathematics:
- Always start math’s preparation with easy and interesting chapters.
- Start your preparation with ALGEBRA because it has independent chapters and you can score 19- 20 marks in EAMCET.
