The Mathematics Teachers Association of India (MTAI), Indian Association of Physics Teachers (IAPT), and Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research) – HBCSE will jointly organize the Indian Olympiad Qualifier in Mathematics (IOQM), a three-hour test (TIFR). Here are some tips that will help the candidates in preparing well for the IOQM-
- Understand the syllabus well- The first rule to win a war is to know your enemy well. Hence, to crack any exam, teaching or non-teaching, the candidates should know the exam pattern very well. They should understand the weightage of each subject and topic and make a note of it. The candidates must be thorough with the topics so that they can analyze their preparation at the last moment. Having a road map of the exam syllabus is also crucial to avoid missing preparing for any topic.
- Choose the right study material- Choosing the right study material is another crucial preparation tip. The candidates should make sure to research well, evaluate deeply, and then choose the right study material. Since the study material would affect a student’s preparation in the long run, they should surely choose the books or resources that do not have any misinformation or wrong knowledge.
- Give enough mock tests- The importance of giving mock tests is unbeatable. No matter which exam a student appears for, they should surely appear for mock tests. Giving a mock test surely helps in understanding the exam better. A candidate who has prepared for the exams can easily identify the important concepts, questions, or lessons once they start appearing for the mock test.
