A free workshop for the upcoming entrance examinations JEE and NEET will be organised at Amar Singh College here on 15 February.   

The organizers in a statement said the first-of-its-kind workshop will primarily be about three mainstays of an entrance exam— application of the concepts, accuracy of attempts in the paper and the need to use time in the best way possible. 

The statement said the students will be given a complete analysis of what is expected to come in the papers on the basis of the data from various years analysed.

It said the workshop is being organised free of cost by two school friends, Ehtisham Qalander and Anzar Draboo.

“Ehtisham ended up doing his engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee(IIT Roorkee) and did his internship from NTU Singapore. Anzar Draboo, who was doing his engineering from SSM, graduated with top marks and made a head motion controlled wheelchair for quadriplegic patients for his project that gained massive coverage all across social media,” the statement said. 

“In a recent meeting, it struck us that the students in Kashmir have never been properly guided to deal with the competitive nature of entrance exams. We felt that the focus is mostly restricted to theory of the subject, and problem-solving has never been given the kind of focus it requires,” they said. 

They also intend to start a quick revision cum test series under the name ‘The Exemplar Classes’ which will be enrolling limited students to guide them in the last hours as entrance exams are approaching. 

They said students will be given guidance on the subjects and their sub-topics as deemed fit to maximise their mileage and ability to score marks. The tests shall be taken on regular basis and the students will be exposed to long drawn continuous hours as a rehearsal before the actual exams. “The entrance exams on an average last more than 3 hours requiring rigorous focus. The students from particularly Kashmir attempt nicely in the first hour but as time passes, their accuracy drops down significantly which leads to low scoring,” they said.  

They said that the students will be given a subsequent revision study with the help of problem-solving exercises so that the myth of exam anxiety could be overcome. “We have also come up with idea of teaching students tricks to solve some of the questions having long solutions in a matter of seconds. Since it is a multiple choice exam, the methods matter a little less. If there can be a smarter way to solve a question, why not do it that way,” they said.  

The statement said the first workshop shall be conducted in Amar Singh College on 15th February 2018 from 11 am to 1 pm and from 2 pm to 4 pm to give a thorough insight in the art of taking competitive exams. The second workshop shall be held on 18th February.

“The interested aspirants could contact them at 9796177933 or 7889951159 to register and know more. They can also register for workshop/classes by mailing them at theexemplarclasses@gmail.com,” the statement added.
