Tips to Improve English

  • What reading does for you might look very subtle on physical levels, but brings about massive transformation in our understanding of the language at the subconscious levels. The more a person reads the better does he understand the correct usage of the grammar. Supplementing this with the knowledge of Grammar rules and a few words of Vocabulary on a daily basis, and you will be good to go.
  • Next you should read at least one editorial passage loudly, add to this another important exercise which is a sure shot way to learn English quickly i.e.
  • To note down an editorial in your notebook daily. We mean copy it down, focus on the lines and grammar formation while doing so. Again this works wonders in gaining a command over the language.
  • Last but not the least, do not fear speaking the language, speak with confidence even if you say it wrong. Only when you speak the language will you know where you are going wrong,Your subconscious will tell you when you go wrong. Supplement this with watching English channels or English movies
  • If you don’t know how a sentence is built up and why two different words combine to give a completely different meaning, you must dive into a different sort of English learning, i.e. the basics grammar. Start from basics. Know what nouns and pronouns and adjectives are. Know how to say of past and present and future in English. Know why a word has many meaning and some words really mean nothing at all. English is fun if you feel it is.

With exam Season about to kick in,we bring to you the intelligent exam strategy that will help you not only in clearing the sectional cut off for English but also help you score well.

Yes we are well aware of a lot of students aversion to this subject. But let us tell you a secret, with smart work and good strategy you can actually manage to clear the cut off quite easily. Remember whatever we share under this point is with special focus on weaker students of English.

Tips to Appear in the Paper:

  1. First things first, attempt only those questions about which you are 100% certain, stay away from guess work no matter what.
  2. Firstly for the students who are weak in English, we recommend that you do not ignore the RC and score maximum from it.But Do it at the end, so as to avoid wastage of time. This strategy increases the efficiency.

Steps For Doing RC:

  • Most of you are confused whether to attempt the RC or not.Well RC can actually be your saving glory in the exams, as it does not require any grammar rules or guess work, all you need to do is to look for the answers. Now 2 rc are expected in the exams, well you obviously cannot immediately read long passages due to lack of time.

So what do you do?

  • Do the vocabulary questions first.
  • For other questions, read one question and then search for the answer quickly, looking for similar words in the paragraphs. But make sure you do it really quickly. Once you get the needed lines of the answer in the RC, then compare it with the options given in the question.
  • If you are unable to locate an answer then move to the next question,but do not get stuck on any question!! Using this method you will be able to attempt the RC in a short span of time and it will help you score well too
  • This method seems odd, but works beautifully in the exams. You still have time before the exams, try it at home as an experiment to see if it works for you.
  • Also stay away from questions like what is the authors view in this passage, or what is the author trying to say, as these questions are usually quite controversial.
  • So basically these exams require you to be really smart . And smartness comes from practice.
  • You can even attempt close tests. If at all you do get confused by the options, start by eliminating the the options that don’t seem to fit in the question. This strategy also helps sometimes in reaching the correct answer. But remember no rule applies to all. So again you need to be smart.
  • Next comes fillers where you can easily attempt 2-3 questions but sometimes the words given are too difficult and the options are too close. So it is better to avoid those and rest you can decide on your own.
  • Next try attempting the para-jumbles as they do not require you to know the grammar well. Even if the para jumble question is tough, even then you can attempt 1-2 questions. So for example the 1st statement, the last statement, the 2nd statement.
  • Rest of the sections go through, but only attempt those in which you are 100 % sure.
  • Don’t forget that there is negative marking, so no point losing marks by guess work especially in a subject which is not your strength.
  • Again the exam is not a test of your knowledge, but a test of how efficiently you score and manage your time. So do not get attached  to any question. Attempt only those questions about which you are 100 percent sure.
  • Lastly for all students – give on-line mock exams if possible as this helps in making strategies, increases speed, and gives you experience for the real battle.
