Around 10 lakh students take the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) every year. The competition is tough, so each question that students attempt can make a difference. The paper is primarily based on the physics, chemistry and mathematics syllabus of the class XII board examination conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE). So students need to have their basic concepts clear.
With the AIEEE examination scheduled for May 1, students have hardly a week to familiarise themselves with the paper pattern. So they should focus on revising the topics and solving model test papers. They should also scan the last few attempted sample papers to identify their weak points. Instead of trying out anything new at this stage; students should rather try and strengthen the areas which they still need to brush up.
The paper has about 100-120 questions not divided under any particular section. The paper also holds negative marking, so a question answered correctly has four times the weightage of an incorrect answer. One should identify the hit ratio, which is the ratio of the number of correct answers to the number of incorrect answers. A hit ratio of 5:1 is excellent while 4:1 is the ideal ratio for attempting the paper. If you are able to bring the probability of getting the answer to 50% by eliminating two choices, you must answer that question anything lesser than 50% is a risk and should be avoided.
As there are not too many questions, students get enough time to go through the paper and spot questions they are comfortable with. However, one can decide which subject physics, chemistry, mathematics to attempt first depending on one’s comfort level. Students should remember that the final score will not be subject-specific. The paper has standard questions with a marking scheme of 3:1. In case of questions with differential marking, students should attempt them in the end more the marks assigned to a question, higher the difficulty level. The last 15 minutes of the three-hour-long paper should be kept aside for difficult questions and revising the answers.
