Now that the process for JEE 2015 is over – and all your seniors have taken up admission in engineering colleges like IITs and NITs, you would be wondering if you too have it in you to get into that dream engineering institute. In order to do that, let us take a quick look at what the JEE entails, and how it will affect your studies in the coming year.

In order to reduce the pressure on students who had to give multiple entrance exams as well as 12th Board exams, the HRD Ministry of the Govt. of India came up with the two-tier JEE structure, where students would give the JEE (Main) exam for all NITs & govt. funded institutes, and 1.5 lakh toppers amongst them would give the JEE (Advanced) for joining the IITs. Many states have also joined the JEE (Main) system, doing away with their state-level entrance exams, and instead using JEE (Main) scores for admissions to their state’s engineering colleges. JEE (Main), thus, holds an unquestionable dominion status on India’s engineering ecosystem.

However, doing well in the JEE (Main) alone does not guarantee students an engineering seat. The pattern used to generate the Rank List for admissions utilises the student’s 12th Board Exams’ marks as well as their JEE (Main) score in a predefined ratio. For Centrally Funded Institutes like NITs, 60% of the weightage is given to the JEE (Main) score, and 40% is given to the 12th Board Exam marks. For state-level admissions, the weightage is 50-50. To get into an IIT, while the 12th Board Exam marks will not be a part of the JEE (Advanced) rank generation pattern, students have to score minimum 75% in their 12th Board Exams, or be in the top 20%ile of their respective board. Thus, it is imperative to not only score brilliantly in the JEE (Main), but also do well in the 12th Board Exams too.

What does this imply for students? It means that they need to have a balanced performance and preparation for both, their 12th Board Exam as well as the JEE (Main) exam, and they need to synchronize their studies well. Their preparation has to start well in time so that they cover both areas of study, and be clear in the concepts they need to cover.

In order to tackle these issues, the concept of synchronized learning has been designed. Students are trained for both JEE (Mains) and 12th Board Exams in a synchronized manner under one roof. Relevant and exhaustive learning solutions that are quite engaging are taught by experienced professors using state of the art infrastructure. Thorough practice and regular assessments help improve performance for each student. Since synchronized learning covers the depth and breadth of both the formal Board syllabus and the competitive exam syllabus, it saves time and avoids duplication of effort by students. Over time, this holistic approach gets the students to gain a strong foothold in their studies, helping them achieve their targets with ease.

Since the first synchronized learning started in Mumbai in 2009, there have been a lot of success stories from these batches with a surge in toppers in both the 12th Board Exams as well as the JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced) tests. Thus, synchronized learning proves to be a viable solution for preparing for both 12th Board Exams and competitive entrance exams.
