5 Tips to streamline your Engineering entrance preparations

Engineering is contemplated as one of the exclusive career choices across India. And the students, as well as the parents, possess an intense urge to pursue it. This branch of study involves science and technology and concerns developing and creating engines, structure, machines, technologies and others. Courses offered by the different Engineering colleges include Computer Science Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Biotech Engineering and Electronics & Communication Engineering, Mining Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, etc. As an engineer, one holds the essence of developing something meaningful and assisting humans with innovative ideas and machines in several tasks.

If one plans to pursue Engineering career post 12 grade then getting entrance in top colleges won't happen on its own. Along with the good marks in Boards and preparation from different Entrance exams, the student needs to streamline the entrance preparations.

IIT JEE, BITSAT, VITEEE, MU OET, SRM JEE, EAMCET are the different types of Engineering entrance exams. These have varied eligibility criteria, different entrance exam patterns and the subjects involved are Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.

To successfully crack an Engineering entrance exam here are some tips that would streamline your preparations and make you stronger and sharper

Create a timetable

One of the main reasons behind the success of the entrance exams is the timetable. Preparation for most of the Engineering entrance exams starts just after finishing class X and for IIT, sometimes it is even before class X. So, students need to make a timetable before beginning their preparation. This timetable will allocate time for mock tests, doubt clearing sessions and study time amidst the regular day. Once the timetable is made, the only challenge is to adhere to it.

Regular practice session

All the subjects involved in the exam are problem-oriented. Hence, the engineering entrance pursuer needs to practice solving the problems regularly. This will guide them to come up with shortcut methods, which in turn will benefit them during the actual exam.

Include breaks in the timetable

Amidst the intense preparation, it is extremely important to take breaks. So, while preparing the timetable, one must include the break time also and during that time he/she should try some constructive activity like playing chess, cricket, solving puzzles, etc. This will rejuvenate their mind and help them to boost concentration.

Working out on previous year papers

Solving previous year papers will help the student to gauge the difficulty level of the exam. Also, it will guide him/her to understand their level of preparation and the time involved to solve it. Through regular practices, the student will form an idea about the pattern of the papers and can prepare for the final exam.

Properly chose reference and study materials

While timetable and practice session are of immense importance, selecting the reference books and study materials are equally important. For instance, NCERT books are extremely helpful for understanding the basic ideas of the subjects. The student should select proper books to study particular topics. With the facts, the students can avoid confusion and focus on study.


These few tips will surely guide a student to plan and prepare for the Engineering entrance tests in the best possible way. For getting an entry in the four-year degree course in Engineering in Annamacharya Institute of Technology & Sciences, Rajampet, a student must possess the eligibility of 10+2 qualification from Board of Intermediate, Government of Andhra Pradesh with Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry as his/her optional subjects, or any other equivalent examination recognized as equivalent thereto. Also, except for NRI quota, the student must qualify in Engineering, Agricultural Sciences And Medical Common Entrance Test (EAMCET), a State-Level Entrance Test conducted by the Govt. of Andhra Pradesh.
