What Is  AIEEE?

The All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) is organized by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). This national level competitive test is for admission to various under-graduate engineering and architecture courses in institutes across India. AIEEE was was first introduced in the year 2002, and the test is generally held on the last Sunday in April and results are announced near the end of May. The Aptitude Test is designed to evaluate candidate’s perception, imagination, observation, creativity and architectural awareness. Performance of the candidates are evaluated and ranked at two levels, first on all-India basis and second on the performance at state-level. The competition level for AIEEE is tough, although the syllabus is almost the same as CBSE Class 11th and 12th.

General information about AIEEE:

* Most of the questions in AIEEE are not difficult but they are just different and they require a different approach and mindset
* The AIEEE question booklet is available in both English and Hindi language. However, you have to make your choice  while filling        the application form
* There is negative marking for wrong answers, one-third marks is accounted for each wrong answer
* Use of Calculators and log tables is not allowed in the test

Tips for preparation for AIEEE

First of all, you must have a thorough knowledge of the syllabus. This will save you from going overboard on a particular topic because you are aware of how much time you can devote to a particular topic. It also helps you in avoiding attention to unnecessary topics. A sound strategy and planning is needed to give appropriate time based on your ability and stick to the strategy as religiously as possible.
These are some strategies which will help you in your preparation

Proper Planning

Long term planning looks at the bigger picture. e.g. when is the JEE exam, when should I complete books/study package, when should I start my revision, what topics should I excel in and how can I excel them, how to work on weak areas etc.

Take Mock tests regularly

Mock Test is all about solving a practice test or previous year paper in exam condition. Practice test will help you to

* maintain your calm and composure during the exam
* inculcates the art of time management
* set your pace for writing the answers and sparing time for a particular question
* analyze your strengths and weaknesses

Give more time to weaker subject or topic

Review your plan periodically to find out if there are any lapses and how they can be covered up. If your learning process is slow, keep studying day after day without getting discouraged. All the subjects are equally important. Devote more time to subject/topic you are weak in. Most of us tend to devote more time on areas we are strong and often shy away from our weakness is never good for competitive exams like this.

Solve problems by your self without any help

While practicing the problem, always try to solve the problem on your own. If you are unable to solve a problem do not hurry to consult the solution. Study the relevant theory again, paying attention to the finer points and the problem in the back of mind. While doing problem solving try to strengthen and develop your conceptual understanding by analyzing deeply and correlating the problem with real life situations. Once you master the concepts and have improved your problem-solving skills, then only learn the shortcuts which will help you save time during exam.

Improve your speed?

While practicing identify your strong & weak areas, you can do this subject-wise, topic-wise and question-wise. Through a structured test you should be able to diagnose which chapter, which concept and what type of problems you need to practice more. One should remember that both speed and strike rate are important for success. Continuously develop the ability to do things fast and accurately. Keep interacting with people who are preparing.

Revision should be conducted on daily basis in a way so that you don’t miss out any things you have already covered. Such situation comes across at the initial levels but regular revision will remove this problem. While preparing the time-line for the preparation, make sure to leave time for complete revision. Do go through last ten years AIEEE question paper. This will help you understand the type and level of questions, and every year there are many questions based on similar concepts asked before.
Question selection

It is very important to understand what you have to attempt and what you have to leave. Selection of question is very important. So success depends upon how judiciously one is able to select the questions. To optimize your performance you should quickly scan for easy question and come back to the difficult ones later.
