There are only few days left for different national and state level engineering entrance examinations like JEE Main, JEE Advanced, UPSEE/ UPTU, WBJEE, VITEEE, SRMJEE etc. Students can appear for these examinations through two modes i.e., online mode and offline mode.
1. In online mode, students have to appear for the examination through computer. Students can view only one question at a time on their computer screen. They can view the next questions after clicking Next Question button.
JEE Advanced, VITEEE and SRMJEEE exams are conducted through online mode.
2. In offline mode, students get one question paper along with the Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) sheet. Students have to fill the corresponding bubble after solving the question given on the question paper.
UPSEE and WBJEEE exams are conducted through offline mode.
JEE Main exam is conducted in both online mode and offline mode.
Students always want to know the best way to fill the OMR sheet so that they could complete all the questions before time. Sometimes students solve all the questions but they didn’t get enough time to fill the bubbles.
In this article, we will talk about the different methods used by students to fill the OMR sheet. Also, we will tell you about the best method which you can use for filling the OMR sheet.
The methods used by students to fill the OMR sheet are given below:
Students fill the bubble on OMR sheet after solving one question. It helps students to maintain the accuracy but their speed of solving the questions become very low. As a result they are not able to solve the complete paper.
In this method students fill the bubbles on OMR sheet after solving the complete paper. Here students are able to solve the complete paper but they didn’t get the enough time to fill the bubbles. Despite of solving all the questions they still didn’t score good marks in the examination.
In this method students fill the bubbles after a fixed interval of time. This method does not ruin the students' time and also helps students to maintain the accuracy in the examination. At the same time, students can relax for some time while filling the bubbles.
Students can follow three approaches in this method. The three approaches are given below:
Students fill the bubbles after a fixed interval of time.
Suppose if the time duration to solve any question paper is 3 hours, then students can make interval of 10 or 15 minutes according to their convenience. After solving the questions, they can fill the bubbles corresponding to the respective questions. It will help students to do maximum questions and fill the bubbles on the OMR sheet.
Students fill the bubbles after solving a fixed number of questions.
Suppose there are 90 questions in any question paper, then students can solve 10 or 15 questions in a single go according to their convenience. Thereafter they can fill the bubbles on the OMR sheet.
In this method, students can fill the bubbles after solving all the questions of a page.
Suppose there are 20 pages in any question paper, then students can solve the questions of 2 or 3 pages in a single go according to their convenience. Thereafter they can fill the bubbles on the OMR sheet.
The methods used by students to fill bubbles on OMR sheet in offline engineering exams are:
1. After solving one question
2. After solving the complete paper
3. After a fixed interval
According to us the best method to fill the bubbles on the OMR sheet is the third one i.e., after a fixed interval. This method does not ruin the students' time and also helps student to maintain the accuracy in the examination. At the same time, students can relax for some time while filling the bubbles.
