Let us be really clear and direct. Here are our simple 10 tips and tricks list which you can follow and is elaborated on further below.
Students who want to pursue graduation in the universities or colleges affiliated with the State of Telangana need to appear for the TS EAMCET (Telangana State Engineering, Agriculture, and Medical Common Entrance Test).
Telangana State Engineering, Agriculture, and Medical Common Entrance Test (TS EAMCET) is conducted by Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University Hyderabad (JNTUH) for admitting students in the two major streams – Agriculture & Medicines, and Engineering which is further subdivided into following undergraduate courses –
Students appearing in TS EAMCET can seek admission into courses including B.E., B.Tech. / B.Tech. (Dairy Technology) / B.Tech. (Bio-Tech.) / B.Tech. (Ag. Engineering) / B.Tech.

Admit yourself to what you have already studied
Make of list of chapters on which you have a high grip. At this point, sticking to the knowledge you already possess and sharpening it is the main work to do. Work on topics which you have already studied.
Avoid any new topic unless you haven’t studied any.
When there is very little time left for your examination, avoid studying any new topics. This will create a stressful scenario or there are chances that you might forget the concepts that you have already learned. Therefore, revise the chapters which you have covered thoroughly and if you feel you can handle studying new concepts, then proceed very carefully.
Focus on solving 60% rather than chasing 100%
In the delusion of completing the whole syllabus, you might be left in between walls surrounding you. Make sure to cover only the syllabus you can with perfection.
Stay hydrated and have a proper diet
after all, when you have only 10 days left, you might be left with nothing but panic. Make sure, you are not anxious. Stay hydrated and have a proper diet.
Solve numerical than remembering theory
Numerical questions carry a lot of weight in both Physics and Chemistry. Practising them every day, especially in the last few days will make you better at it. Therefore, thoroughly revise all the formulas and practice as many problems as possible.
Most repeated and easy EAMCET questions
Here’s a list of questions predicted by EAMCET SPACE that you can consider for easy scoring.*
Last hope - guesses
Guesses are the last hope. Kindly do not go to the war(exam) without any weapon(preparation). At least know the rules of guessing or Guessing hacks.
The Golden Rule of Guessing:
This is the most important of all the MCQ hacks: abolish the wrong options first. They help you to narrow the question to at least three or, if you are lucky, to two options. Every MCQ has an option which basically screams “Of course, I’m not right”. Always eliminate the obviously wrong choices first – they help through all the different types of problems there are. For example, if an option is “All” and you know one of the options to be wrong, bingo! You now have to choose from two options.
This is an important life hack too. When confused or overburdened by choices, always remove the ones that you absolutely don’t want. A senior used this to sort out his career. He never wanted to go for an MBA so he eliminated that. He didn’t like corporate jobs. So that was gone too. The options left in front of him were: PhD or IAS. That made his life easier.
Questions with options like “All of these”/ “None of these”:
‘None’ and ‘All’ options are rarely ever the answers to a given question. But here’s the thing: now that paper setters know that students will mostly avoid answering the question with these options, they sometimes do set questions with such answers. To be absolutely sure you must either completely work the question out, or simply try out and check each of the other options – whether they are compatible with each other, whether they are compatible with the question and so on. For instance, if the question goes “The root of this cubic equation is…”, it would be a good idea to simply substitute the options one by one. As it turns out, mostly the answer to such a question would be d) All of these.
Avoid the extremes if the answer is number-based:
If the options are 2, 345, 5 and -74, you can be pretty sure that 345 and -74 are not the answers. The answers are generally between numbers that are close or confusing. EAMCET checks your alertness and smartness. It will give you options like 1441, 1414, and 1144 if the answer is 4141 just to test your alertness. Many students find the right answer but while marking it, they mistakenly mark the wrong one. And then they claim to have made a silly mistake. You didn’t make a silly mistake, my friend, you fell for the question paper setter’s trick.
Check the dimensions:
This is by far the most powerful MCQ hack. Be smart when the paper is trying to fool you. If a question asks for ‘volume’ the answer obviously cannot have the dimensions of ‘surface area’. It can be extended beyond the realm of physics too – a mathematical question with alphabet constants like a, b and c can be thought of as a physics-based question. For example, an integral involving semi-major and minor axes of an ellipse a and b can simply be thought of as an integral involving two things with the dimensions of length. Paralleling the mathematical integral with the now physics-based integral, you can work out what dimension the answer should have and compare the options.
When Two Choices Have Words That Sound Similar, Pay Close Attention To Them:
If two of the choices on the test are nearly identical in terms of spelling, one of them is probably the right answer. Paper setters like to throw two similar options at you in an attempt to trip you up. If you’re guessing, this usually gives you a 50/50 shot.
When Two Choices Are Complete Opposites, One of Them is Probably Right:
If two of your options are exact opposites, then there’s a good chance that one of them is the correct answer. It’s a trick used to throw students off and to make sure that they actually know the material.
For instance, if the options go
a) 0 is neither a real number nor an imaginary one
b) 0 is both a real number and an imaginary one
c) 0 is a real number
d) none of the above
one of a) and b) is bound to be correct.
Sacrifice a Question:
You might find yourself in a position where there are two questions with opposing answers. In situations like this, it can be a good idea to answer the questions so that you’re guaranteed to get at least one of them right.
Don’t read too deep into the Questions:
When you really don’t know the answer to a question, it’s easy to over-analyze. You might wonder if it’s a trick question or if there’s some kind of deeper meaning. Most of the time the question means exactly what it says and you should take it at face value. If you’re already confused, there’s no point in making things even more complicated for yourself.
None of these methods or tips works 100 per cent of the time (after all, you’re guessing). The point of MCQ hacks is to narrow down your options and come up with the best possible guess. Also, remember that there are no patterns in an OMR sheet. The fact that three ‘b’s came in a row before the question you blanked out at does NOT imply that the answer to your mystery question would also be ‘b’.
The best approach, though, is to study and be prepared for the test in order to avoid guessing altogether. If you are a Joker (Batman reference) fan and just want to create chaos, you could also mark all the answers as ‘d’ and score decent marks.
At last, all the best for your EAMCET 2022. —Team EAMCET SPACE
