Plancess Edusolutions, @plancess on PG, is here to answer your queries related to JEE & other engineering exams, their experts will answer them through the week.

While answering any entrance exam is not easy, some tips and tricks do come in useful when answering multiple choice questions (MCQs). A team of experts from Plancess Edusolutions provides you with some tips & tricks to improve your ability to select correct answers in MCQs.

As we know, the JEE is the toughest entrance test in India. But how many of you know tricks to mark correct answers for MCQs in JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced)? Some of you might not be aware of them. Don't worry, in this post we'll share some tips to select the correct answers in the JEE MCQs.

In JEE, all questions are objective with multiple choices. MCQs have four answers, of which sometimes one and at times two options are correct. Students need to circle the correct option for every question to earn marks. In order to mark the correct answer, you need to understand the concepts from every topic.

Our team of top rankers in the JEE and subject matter experts have come up with five simple tricks to get correct answers in these MCQs. Follow them to score well in the exam:

Discard highest and lowest: For questions with answers in numerical values, discard the extremes. For 60% of the cases, the highest & lowest values are not right. Be careful in choosing these answers.

Choose one amongst two options: If you have already discarded two incorrect answers, choose one out of the remaining options. You can use the previous point to select the correct answer.

Attempt all 'no-negative marking' questions: At times, some questions don't carry any negative marking, leaving you free to take some chances. You should never leave such questions un-attempted. Read the marking scheme properly to ensure you attempt every such question to earn marks.

Memorize the easiest topics: Modern Physics with its atoms, nuclei, and radiation are some of the topics which cannot be ignored during the JEE. In fact, these topics will help you earn about 20-25 marks in the exam with ease. They require not more than a couple of days to understand. Hence, memorize the easiest topics to score well.

Pay attention to diagrams: Even if you are not sure of a topic or concept, you can still score well in the test. Learn to draw an approximate diagram according to the given parameters. It might take a little to draw the diagram, but will help you score good marks in IIT JEE Test, as the solution may be easily visible in the drawing itself.

The Bottom Line

The above five tricks will help JEE aspirants mark the correct answers for MCQs and earn good marks in this highly competitive exam.

Plancess Edusolutions brings to you scientific study skills that can help to crack competitive entrance exams like the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE).

As students, you might know what to study and when to study; these lessons are imparted in every school. But do you know how to study? It is surprising that during our entire school time, we are never taught how to 'learn' effectively.

Create The Right Mood:Repeated actions tune your mind to a routine. For instance, if you wake up at 8 a.m. everyday during the weekday, chances are high that you will fall in the same routine even in the weekends. Once you get accustomed to this, you will mechanically get into the mood to study at that time. It eliminates boredom; and works really well for subjects or topics you don't like.

Synchronize Your College-Timetable with your Personal Study Plan: When your teacher teaches a topic in class, you should try to study, revise or make summary notes as soon as you come home. There are ample benefits of making and using revision notes. When there is a class test, you can refer to these notes a few minutes before the exam.

Break Your Preparation into Shorter Sessions: Many students say they learn as much in a one-hour pre-planned session as they would in a 6-7 hours long unplanned session. Many researchers have found that by using a well-created study plan, candidates could reduce their study-time by at least 20%. It is equally important to take study breaks for your brain to function properly. It also helps you remember stuff. When you are trying to learn dates or memorize important events, you should study for not more than 20-30 minutes at a stretch.

Avoid Studying When You Are Sleepy: Everybody has a time when they just cannot control their sleep. If you take up books at that time, you won't be able to learn anything. Let the phase pass; you should engage yourself in other activities like cleaning your wardrobe, room or any such other things to avoid your sleep.

Schedule Your Preparation Wisely: Researchers have found that it is better to schedule contrasting subjects one after another, rather than clubbing them together. If you have planned studying theory Physics and Chemistry in a day, change your plan a little to maintain your interest level. You can include problem-solving in between; this will help you revise what you have studied and maintain your interest level.

Highlight Important Points:It is always good to colour your book i.e. mark/highlight important points from every chapter you study. You can colour main ideas, dates, and facts for easy understanding. It makes revision easier. Mark the stuff such that the next time you open the book, you'll be able to understand the points marked.

Most of the students inside the IIT campus are students who belong to different states. Food, hence, is their biggest concern. Food served in the hostel mess is not exactly appetizing, and most don't enjoy it. They hence indulge in eating instant noodles, tea and bread, junk food, most of which also takes toll on their body. A dinner invitation at a relative's house (staying nearby) or homemade tiffin service is enough to brighten up their face.


We all know getting into IITs is no mean feat. Hence, IITians are the centre of attraction, in all social functions. Relatives leave no chance to praise their achievement of getting into an IIT. This gives them the much needed dose of motivation.


Nothing can compare the happiness of the last minute cancellation of lectures. Whether it is change in schedule or complete class cancellation, nothing gives the IITians a better high than an off-hand 'chilling out' plan.


Now that's something that every IITians enjoy!  Be it for downloading resources/materials for quiz, assignment or exam preparation, or for downloading movies and having game-athons, high-speed internet connection makes life super exciting for them.


IITians love getting treated for no good reason- grades, birthdays, one off random conversation with the person they like and just about anything else! They always look forward for the treat from someone. Like most of us, 'free-food' is a delight that even these IITians relish.

There have been many start-ups flourishing in the economy. Most of these that have turned to be successful have in fact been started by IITians themselves. And they have been flocking the IITs to recruit fresh talents for their company. Surprisingly there have many takers for the offers made by these start-ups rather than the multinational or established domestic companies.

Let's take a look at the reasons behind this shift:

Exposure and experience

One of the biggest benefits of joining a start-up is that you are handling multiple tasks and responsibilities. You handle several roles at a time, and managing everything in a company provides great exposure and learning experience.

Quick learning

By joining a start-up you learn to do everything in one day- either consciously or unconsciously. An IITian is accustomed to hard work and working at odd times, however there is one more thing which you might not know about these nerds - their thirst for knowledge, it is this thirst that will lead them to choose a start-up.

An energetic and youthful environment

A majority of the employees in any start-up are in their mid-20s, making the environment energetic and exciting. Also, such companies provide a healthy and competitive work environment, which allows the employees to excel.

Scope and space for innovation

Since a start-up does not have a rich history to preserve, every new idea is put to test for the benefit of the company. And as we know IITians do things in a little odd way, thereby making the work culture interesting and every idea creative and innovative.

Attractive salary package

Gone are the days when only an established could afford an eye-popping salary package. These days even start-up offers not less than 10-20 lakhs per annum to an IITian.

Why is that we see very few female faces in the elite engineering institutes like Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs)? What is the reason for the low number of girls in the premier institutions? Asked a few guys in the college, we got some of the most surprising (a few shocking too) and witty answers.

According to a group of guys in IITs, girls resort to by-hearting hence they do well in Class 12th examination, but fail miserably in JEE - where mugging up doesn't work. Some feel girls are not too smart to crack the toughest entrance exam like IIT JEE.

Whatever may be the reason, the fact remains that a small number of girls make it to IITs.

When asked to a group of girls about the poor performance of female candidates in the examination, a few opined that girls are not encouraged by either their family or social system to be an engineer. They generally opt for medical or commerce subjects. That could be one of the many reasons for not having too many girls in IITs.

Not just one, there are several reasons for this-

Reason # 1 - No expectation, no effort

In most middle-class families, where girls are expected to study the same as their brothers, a lot of times, the expectations differ. In case of a boy, there is really no other way out than to study, and get into a good college, as it is not acceptable in India to not become an engineer or doctor (find some Indian parents memes, you will get an idea).

But in the subconscious of a lot of families, the expectation from a girl is to study, have a decent job and get married. (A lot of my female friends in coaching agreed that their parents didn't really expect them to crack JEE, but get into any good engineering college. If the expectation is not there, the effort won't be there too)

While reading through some of the replies on Quora, I came across some of the interesting answers (I'm not saying they are right or wrong) to 'why few girls make it to IITs?'

Reason # 2 - Women all around the world don't do that well in standardized problem-orientated aptitude tests. 
Even in highly developed, liberal countries like US, Germany, Sweden, Norway and UK, not many women are found pursuing engineering and scientific research!It's got more to do with genetics and less to do with society. Generally women are very good at multi-tasking which men can't manage. This is however a disadvantage when it comes to tests like IIT, GATE and CAT which requires complete focus and single-minded dedication to arrive at the only possible solution for the problem! The format plays into the hands of the non multi-tasking male.

Reason # 3 - Lack of financial support and infrastructure (a general perception)
To the boys who say girls have the habit of mugging up or lack analytical ability, my question is "Why are advanced scientific initiatives are largely limited to the west, why are we behind in that area despite having so many world-class male engineers?" Some of you might say that's because our western counterparts have space, financial support and infrastructure.

If you feel our country lack in all of the above terms then why not extend the same theory to girls! All the male members of our country should think over it!

In this article, we are not going to compare Stanford and Palo Alto with IITB at Powai, Mumbai. But yes, we are definitely going to introduce the fast emerging start-up hub - Powai here. According to newspaper reports and official records, approximately 20 new ventures have been established by IIT-B students and alumni in the last year. The number looks so impressive that budding entrepreneurs have already started comparing Powai with Silicon Valley.

In fact, a number of e-commerce ventures started as Facebook pages operated by students from their hostel rooms. Two of the most popular and budding start-ups by IITians from IIT Powai - Ola Cabs and revolutionized taxi booking and house hunting with their innovative ideas.

IIT Bombay acts as a mentor to students in the form of the institute's incubation centre and entrepreneurship cell. These help centres assist in inculcating a strong network among entrepreneurs.

The strong network, support and atmosphere at IITB have helped a migrant from Patna, Saurav Suman, co-founder of to commence a start-up business while still in college. allows one to order timed sessions of professional and specialized housekeeping online.

Like these ventures, there are many students and alumni of IIT Bombay who have initiated successful start-ups, and it is only going to increase in the coming years.

We hope to stand next to Stanford and Palo Alto in the years to come!

IIT JEE aspirants are usually busy with their projects, school, classes and self-study. A candidate usually spends 13-14 hours (6-7 hours in school, 2-3 hours in coaching classes and 5-6 hours in revision) in studying, revising and practicing.

Every JEE aspirants go through this schedule and grind, however not all go on till the end. During the preparation period for the JEE aspirants, it is quite easy to crack mid-way. But to keep oneself going, taking short breaks during studies and spending some time with family and friends is refreshing. But what about the times when there is no one around for the pep talk? It's music then which brings solace, when in the company of none.  Something chirpy, motivating, soothing (shouldn't be confused with sad songs) and songs which boost your mood.

Here is a playlist which the JEE aspirants can tune into.

It's always good to listen to songs which help to bring one in a positive frame of mind. Aaj kal Zindagi from the movie Wake up Sid is one such. For students who are English buffs, Wouldn't It Be Nice by the Beach Boys, is a great track to listen to.

At times when there is no one to calm your frayed mind, soulful songs are the best remedy. Such songs bring peace and the much-needed break to one's mind. They are not as comforting as a mother's love, but they might just help you to calm down. Dil kyu ye mera shor kare from the movie Kites and Que Sera Sera by Sly and the Family Stone are two of the most soothing songs.

Motivation is something which the students need in oodles especially during the preparation time. Songs stimulate our grey cells and help kick off all those perplexing thoughts. Such songs can be very powerful; it can raise your hope even when everything seems lost. Having these on your list is really important when preparing for JEE. Kuch Kariye, Kuch Kariye from the movie Chak de India! And the song Rise and Shine by Raffi does the trick.

There could be more such songs that you may love listening to. Leave your comments and tell us about the tracks that you listen, to keep the midnight oil burning.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducts Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main every year, for admissions in engineering colleges in India. Each year lakhs of students give JEE Main to secure a seat at IITs, NITs, IIITs, and other centrally funded technical institutions (CFTIs), by participating state government and many other institutes.

JEE Main 2016 offline exam is scheduled to be held on April 3 and online test is to be conducted on April 9 and 10.

With JEE Main 2016 round the corner, students must be looking for important questions to bank upon in the remaining days. In this article, Plancess gives you a complete list of important topics in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics for JEE Main.

JEE question paper comprises of approximately 45% - 50% syllabus of Classes 11th and 12th. Based on the syllabus of these classes and trend of past JEE papers, listed below are the important topics for PCM.

Important Topics for Physics

Physics is termed as a difficult subject for some candidates. Revising the below topics might help you score relatively good marks in the final exam. Check below.

Important topics: Kinematics, Gravitation, Fluids, Heat & Thermodynamics, Waves & Sound, Capacitors & Electrostatics, Magnetics, Electromagnetic Induction, Optics & Modern Physics.

Study tips: Conceptual clarity is essential to score well in this subject. Expert suggests practicing maximum problems regularly.

Important Topics for Chemistry

Most students find it difficult to recall chemical formulas. They often gets confused with the reactions. Hence, we have listed few important topics that carries maximum weightage in the exam.

Important topics: Coordination Chemistry & Chemical Bonding in Inorganic Chemistry, Electrochemistry, Chemical & Ionic Equilibrium, Mole Concept in Physical Chemistry and Organic Chemistry.

Study tip: Skimming through the periodic is crucial. Students must read NCERT books for Inorganic Chemistry. In order to excel in Organic Chemistry, develop your basics. In Physical Chemistry focus on numerical.

Important Topics for Mathematics

Mathematics is typically, universally considered as the toughest subject, especially for weak students. For them, listed below are the important topics__.

Important topics: Quadratic Equations & Expressions, Complex Numbers, Probability, Vectors, Matrices in Algebra; Circle, Parabola, Hyperbola in Coordinate Geometry; Functions, Limits, Continuity and Differentiability, 

Application of Derivatives, Definite Integral in Calculus.

Study tip: Mathematics demand for maximum practice. This can be done using previous year question papers and attempting online mock tests. It is important to solve problems regularly to build up your confidence.

Plancess experts recommend JEE Main aspirants to avoid being choosy when it comes to preparing for PCM. It is because the number of questions is more in the objective paper, where the questions come from a combination of concepts from several topics.

5 things to do after writing entrance examination 

Entrance examinations for engineering, medical and management are tough to crack. Aspirants preparing for the tests put in their heart and soul throughout the year to crack the exam with excellency. But their work doesn't stop here. The real toil begins after the examination.


Whether you are appearing for JEE, AIPMT or CAT, knowing the top colleges for the course of your choice is important. Once you have given the exam, start making a list of the best colleges relevant to your field of study. The list may vary for each student based on their location prefer and financial limitations. While listing preferential colleges, students should keep in mind certain important parameters (viz. placement record, courses offered, reviews etc.) to make their choice.


This can be done using an expert tool available online like PaGaLGuY. Rank can be predicted only after you calculate the estimated score, which can be done once the answer keys have been released. Your approximate rank will help you know which college and branch you could get admission into.


One should be mentally and strategically prepared to face the consequences of a low rank. For instance, you may have desired admission in IIT Bombay, but couldn't achieve a rank required to materialise that desire.  Shortlist a backup college so that you don't end up wasting an academic year trying to overcome the disappointment or make hasty decisions in damage control


List out the most demanding courses within your field of study. There are several specialised courses within the engineering domain like computer science, electronics, biotechnology, metallurgy, etc. Weigh your options and level of interest for each specialisation before settling on a college. 


Post examination, students usually feel more stressed speculating their results. Barrage of question and 'what ifs' loom around in their heads. Ideally, students should not scrutinise their question paper after the exam. The moment you finish your exam, think about a bright future.

Follow the above points and craft a better future for yourself.

All the best!

Be it working on projects, preparing for exams or creating presentations, group studies can be fun. Despite all debates that linger regarding studying in a group, many students prefer group studying as it helps to build knowledge and clear conceptions. In this section, experts at Plancess have highlighted the key benefits of studying in groups:

1. Learn Faster and Efficiently

Studying together in groups, students tend to learn faster and more efficiently than self-study. Suppose you have difficulty in understanding one section of a chapter, but it may be quite clear to your fellow student. When you study in group, you can quickly learn the concept by asking questions to your friend. So, you do not have to boggle your mind learning a topic. Likewise, you can help a friend when they face difficulties understanding something where you have a clear concept.

2. Group Study Helps Promote Creativity

Study groups are competitive and cooperative at the same time. Studying in groups helps to promote creativity and critical thinking as questions and explanations arise in debates and discussions. It creates an interactive environment that not only helps to improve knowledge but also reinforces learning. There are several aspects that you can miss during self-study. But when you study in a group, the chance of missing anything is rare.

3. Stop Procrastinating

When you study alone, a sense of procrastination or doing it later might creep in. You might find out several excuses to "rationalise" postponing your study. You might want to check Facebook or take a small nap. All these may actually contribute in breaking your mood rather than making it. On the other hand, in an interactive study environment, there are rare chances of procrastination. Even if you wish to postpone things, there will always be someone who will push you to study.

4. Break the Boredom

One of the biggest disadvantages of self-study is boredom. It is not surprising to feel monotonous when you study alone. However, the problem is that boredom causes you to lose focus and you might engage in some other activities, or again, procrastinate. When you study in groups, monotony and boredom are rare because you have other fellow students to interact and study in a friendly environment that invokes learning.

5. Get Instant Answers to Questions; Resolve Problems

When you study a subject, numerous questions may pop up in your mind. However, you have to wait to ask your teacher or tutor to get the answer for the same. Until then the question will bug you down. Again, imagine a situation when you trying to solve a problem and you get stuck with no one to help you. This can be quite embarrassing and annoying. On the flip side, when you are studying in a group, you have other students to consult when a question arises in your mind or you face difficulty solving a problem.

6. Know New Study Methods

Besides gaining a new perspective to learning a topic, you may also learn new techniques when you study in a group. Most students have their individual study methods and during group study, you may observe different study techniques in action. Consider their pros and cons, and determine whether you want to integrate them into your study method. While your way of study can be excellent, you may always want to sharpen your mind and learn more efficiently by learning new study methods.

7. Improve Your Communication Skills

Studying with your peers is a good way to hone your communication skills. This will help you to work collaboratively with your colleagues during your career.

Before you join a study group, it is important to remember that not all groups are created same. Therefore, it is vital that you choose your fellow students carefully.

What do top rankers have in common? 

Ever wonder what top rankers do differently to achieve those numbers that you thought were definitely within your reach? You studied well, and to the best of your capacity and capability. Then what went wrong and where? What is the missing link that will bridge the gap between your score and the highest scores achieved? Even if every student does not have access to the same study material for the competitive exam, there are certain traits that are consistent with top rankers.

Listed below are the habits that are unanimous to all achievers in examinations. We believe that these simple yet essential techniques will ensure that you get rightfully paid for all the hardwork and diligence you put in throughout the months.   

Consistency - Come what may, sticking to your routine should be your priority. The same schedule everyday may get monotonous, but your marksheet will speak volumes of how you handled this mundane routine.

Strong Fundamentals - The key to a bright academic future lies in the clarity of fundamental concepts. Often these basic concepts lay the base for understanding complicated theories. It is essential to follow the sequence of chapters/concepts laid out in the study material. It is therefore highly recommended that all key concepts are systematically studied.   

Periodic Revision - No matter how committed you are to the routine you have laid out for yourself, there will be days when you won't feel like starting new chapters. Days like these are ideal for revision. Revision is less time consuming and brings a feeling of contentment.

Highlighted Concepts - Identifying important chapters/concepts helps prioritise the syllabus. Just like its vital to lay emphasis on the basic concepts, identifying the chapters that have weightage in the exam will assist you to carefully allocate sufficient amount of time to these important topics.    

Confidence - Confidence for any exam can only be built by solving questions and mock tests repeatedly. Learning and retaining theories is only half the battle, testing your knowledge and applying them to questions, is how you ace all important exams.

Don't idolise the person who has broken records in the educational sector. The top ranker is an ordinary man who has found ways to study in an extraordinary manner. They aren't exclusive to any one - create your opportunity today!

JEE Main multiple choice questions require aspirants to pick the correct answer from a set of options. There are generally four options to every question, out of which one or more than one option is correct. It is usually seen that candidates consider objective questions easy as compared to subjective.

Cracking JEE Main Multiple Choice Questions

Despite of the wide spread liking towards MCQs and JEE Main 2016 paper pattern, multiple choice questions could be difficult to tackle. At times, the choices may appear similar and therefore you might get confused. In order to answer the questions correctly, students need to have deeper insight of every topic in the syllabus.  

Understanding this, IIT JEE Rankers and Subject Matter Experts from Plancess has listed down some useful IIT JEE Preparation Tips to crack IIT JEE multiple choice questions successfully!

Understand the question

Identify the important part of the question and apply your logic. Understand what the question is before marking the answer. Once you are sure, only then tick the answer. Choosing correct answer is really important, since every wrong answer might result in deduction.

Don't be in hurry during JEE

Giving the right answer is very crucial in IIT JEE therefore mark the answers carefully. Don't guess the answer too soon! Take some time to think and make necessary calculations. Stop and read the question and options carefully.

Choose technically correct option

It is often seen that people tend to ignore options like 'all of the above' and 'none of the above' thinking such options are never correct. In reality, these options tend to be right more often.  Don't jump into any option abruptly.

Do a little guess work

Even though guess work is not always the best practice, it might work at times. If you are not sure of an answer, make a guess! Delete some options, which you think is incorrect and try to relate the leftovers with the questions to check what answer you get. Remember, guess work is not always beneficial. So try to avoid it!

Don't change your answer

Avoid changing your answers frequently. Generally, first answer is always correct. Regularly changing the answer might prove wrong at the end. This also leads to confusion. Therefore, stick to one answer regularly.

Move on

Despite of so many attempts, if you are not getting the right answer, switch to the next question. Sticking to just one question will waste your time. Solve other questions, and return to this one once done with all. You can spend the remaining few minutes in solving this question.

The Bottom Line

Students can use the above tricks for both online and offline exams. Candidates should make sure they are stress free and calm before writing IIT JEE test. Since, due to tension you may lose concentration and might mark a wrong answer.
