what is the procedure of the entrance exam in online mode and what are the important things required to keep in mind during the exam
An online exam is pretty much like it's offline counterpart. However, there are some notable differences. You will have a timer at the top of your screen, indicating how much time is left. You can flag questions, mark them to be done later, and change your answers once after marking already. You will be provided with a rough pad to do your calculations in. In the physical sense, the nature of exam remains the same. Some things to keep in mind:
- Often students mark answers to a question, flag it to be done later, and forget about it. In exams where there is negative marking, this can result in loss of marks if the answer is wrong, as a flagged attempted question is considered to be attempted.
- While you are attempting questions, you would know which ones you have no idea about, and which ones you can come back to later and think. Flag the latter category, this will save your time, as when you revisit the questions, you won't have to bother with unflagged unattempted questions.
- Look at the timer, and give yourself adequate time to revisit the questions.
