XAT 2016: Negative marking for Skipped Questions

XAT 2016

There has been a lot of fuss over the latest change announced by the XAT conducting body – in XAT 2016. Candidates will have a choice of not attempting 13 questions. Beyond this, for every additional question skipped, students will be penalized by 0.05 marks per question

The negative marks obtained for to not attempting questions, will be divided proportionately across all the three sections. Say for example, if a student skips 33 questions (15/8/10 respectively in the 3 sections) then the negative marking for the students will be 1 (20×0.05 with no negative marks for 13 questions). This negative 1 would be distributed across the 3 sections in the proportion 15:8:10. This works out to a negative marking of -0.455, -0.242 and -0.303 respectively for the 3 sections.

Candidates should not be too much worried about this aspect at all. As seen in the above example, with 33 skipped questions, the impact is an insignificant mark(i.e. only -1). Take the test as if this rule does not exist. Work towards maximizing one’s attempts in each of the 3 sections and in all probability.

Hence sincere suggestion is not get perturbed by this new rule. The mantra is to maximize no. of questions attempted – if the test is on the easier side, student may end up attempting all or most of the questions and if the test is tough, he should not try too hard to skip less than 13 questions and avoid the negative marking.

Tips to write fast in exams

Tips to write fast in exams

Every student struggles really hard to prepare well for exams. Examination hall adds even more to challenge. Students have to reflect all they know about the concept on a sheet of paper but fall prey of time. Their disappointment multiplies when they are not able complete the exam, despite knowing a lot about the concept. In order to write fast in exams, one must be well prepared. If the structure of your answer is very clear in your head, then you are accustomed to write in flow. In addition to that, there are certain practices that the candidates need to follow to be swift and fast while writing exam. Some important tricks to improve your writing speed are mentioned below.

Some practices to increase speed in exams:

    • Practice handwriting on the examination day 15 minutes of practice can be very helpful in warming up and making acquaintance with the pen you are going to use during the exam. This would enhance flexibility in your muscles and help you to use your hands in order to improve your writing speed.
    • Use pens which you are comfortable with & avoid using new pens on the day of the Exams. Since you would have adjusted to the width and length of the pen, catching hold of new pen may turn out to be a wrong choice.
    • Always remember that our brain will recollect the answer for a particular question. So, always go to the examination hall with a fresh mind. Take proper sleep and required rest before going to examination hall. If your mind is totally set, you are able to recall and reflect the information learnt in the most organized manner.
    • Avoid using things which can disturb you in the examination hall like ring, long nails, so that they do not hinder your hand movements while writing.
    • Let your fingers grip the pen properly. Reduce the amount of pressure you apply in order to write. It may feel uncomfortable initially, but in due course of time, adapting to the thicker barrel of a pen, you will realize muscle strain reduces dramatically.
    • Instead of relying entirely on your wrist to write, involve your forearm to guide your hand .This practice will reduce the strain on your wrist and allow you to write more comfortably.
    • Don’t add additional weight on your arms by hunching over the desk. Sit in a way that takes pressure off your writing hand.

Study thoroughly and work on these tips to reflect all information you know in an appropriate manner. Do well in exams.

Ways to Make Your Learning More Organized

1. Review of syllabus and planning: Catch hold of your syllabus and plan your learning accordingly. Find out your exam dates and your priorities accordingly. Pin these dates into your calendar so that you don’t miss out on these. Plan revision sessions at least a week in advance of each exam. Plan several mini-review sessions, well in advance, rather than trying to cram everything in just one mega session.

  1. Pay attention in class: Paying attention while you’re in class will help you to a great extent in exam time. There is no point assuming that you’ll attain all knowledge close to exams. Be an active learner. Listen carefully .Teachers emphasis on certain words and issues with examples which are otherwise not available. They explain that from their experiences. This is the real key to knowledge and gives you better understanding of concepts. The more you absorb the information early on, the less studying you’ll need to do.

3. Take detailed notes: Learning how to take good notes will help you immensely during the time to study. Write down everything your teacher writes on the board or puts up in organized way. Try to record as much of what the teacher says as possible. But don’t take notes to that extent that you forget to listen. Revise your notes daily, right after class. This will help reinforce the information you just learned.

4. Make studies an integral part of your routine: Often, studies is perceived as something that only gets done at the last minute in a huge overnight session. Instead, try setting aside some time every day to study. Scheduling it just like another class may help you stay motivated in learning process.

5. Exam format: Make sure you know about the format the test will be in, how it will be graded, if there are any opportunities for extra credit. This will assist you to lay emphasis on the important topics and study in more detail about the topics which carry more credits.

6. Focused work objectives: Setting a concrete study goal may help you to decide on what you want to accomplish. Create study plans. Finish easy lessons first, so you can spend quality time on the difficult lessons without getting anxious.

7. Write a study guide: Rewrite the most important information from your notes. This gives you a more focused way to study by creating another form of studying.

8. Reinvent your notes (Mind mapping): if you’re a kinesthetic learner, rewriting notes will help you to a great extent. Mind mapping is the most effective way of doing this. It refreshes your memory. Don’t simply copy your notes over and over again. Instead, read and think about the contents of your notes and then write them in your own language. This will give you better understanding of concepts

9. Ask yourself questions about your material: This can help you tell if you have remembered what you just studied. Don’t try to remember the exact wording from your notes in your answer to yourself; synthesizing that information into an answer is a much more useful tactic.

10. Review previous tests and assignments: Catch hold of earlier year news paper. This will help you to be familiar with type of question you get in the exam. This is particularly helpful if the exam you’re studying covers things you also covered earlier in the course.
