IES 2019 Tips and Tricks (How to Prepare)

Engineering Services Exam is an exam for engineering students which needs proper dedication and time to study as well as a well-planned strategy. A scrupulously planned out strategy for the preparation of IES  involves many points such as review of previous year question papers, knowledge about the exam pattern, time management to cover the complete syllabus, revision, practice and guidance of experts. Below we have mentioned the points which can help you prepare well in the exams.


Importance of Reviewing Previous Years’ Papers:

Previous years’ IES question papers will help an IES aspirant get an idea about the type and standard of questions asked. By solving those questions in the required time period, you will get to know about their strengths and weaknesses. Your weaknesses can be in the form of making careless errors, lack of test-writing skills, lack of question selection ability, nervousness, inability to concentrate, etc. In short, going through previous years’ question papers will show you the exact mirror, and constrain you to work on your weaknesses so that they do not affect your performance during the main exam.

Familiarise with the Exam:

Try to gather as much information about the exam, the pattern of the ESE exam question papers, for ESE Prelims as well as ESE Mains. The type of questions either subjective or objective would be asked, how much questions might be there, which subject or topic will be given how much weightage, what would be the duration for answering each paper, etc.

Managing the Time in Hand:

It is very important to chalk out a study plan according to the time left for the exam and the subject/topics to be covered. This will save you from unnecessary anxiety and stress as the exam approaches. Prepare a timetable on the basis of the topics or subjects that need to be covered before an exam, sparing enough time for revision of the entire ESE syllabus. Give some extra time to subjects that are difficult. Keep on marking the subjects/topics as you proceed. This will help to boost your level of confidence.

Importance of Revision:

Revision is very important from an exam perspective as it helps you recall the studied subjects/topics, and self-analyse your level of preparation. Time to time revision of what you have learned so far is more effective than cramming the subjects/topics a day before the actual exam. It also helps a student to test himself before sitting in the real exam. Revising the subjects or topics that you have studied earlier helps you to engage your mind and to remain focussed. Revision doesn’t help you remember what you have studied, it helps you to imbibe what you have learned so far.

Practice, and Practice More:

Create an exam like environment at your home, and practice as much as questions to attain perfection, and improve your speed and accuracy. Put all your notes, books, study material, etc. away and solve as many practice questions under timed conditions. This will also help you get rid of the exam anxiety.

Seek Expert Guidance:

To boost your level of preparation, it is highly recommended to take the advice of experts. In the case of ESE, the experts can be in the form of former ESE rankers or past ESE toppers. They can help you with their experience, self-developed tips and tricks to improve your answering speed, and score better. They can help you comprehend difficult and tricky questions. They also come handy when you are stuck while solving a problem, and can clear your doubts.
