Online Entrance Test for Commercial Pilot soon

November 23rd, 2008

Online entrance test for pilots soon reports the Economic Times

You may soon be able to take an online examination to qualify as a commercial pilot, on the lines of TOEFL and GRE. Your medical test could be conducted by private healthcare companies such as Fortis and Max.

The proposed system would reduce the registration and examination processes by a few days unlike the prevailing practice which takes over four to five months.

The civil aviation ministry has already initiated the process of setting up computerised examination centres in the Capital for the prospective aviators. It expects to conduct first online test by the end of the year.

“To begin with, we are planning to conduct online examination for the candidates in Delhi. The proposed system will allow candidates to book a slot for the exam online.

Thereafter, they would be given time and place for the exam. Soon after the test, the candidate would get the result,” said an official in the civil aviation ministry.

“Every year, nearly 60,000 students, half of them from Delhi, sit for commercial pilot test. We plan to put in place the same system for private pilot licence (PPL) as well in the second phase,” he added.

The examination papers for all would be multiple-choice.

A similar examination arrangement would be made later for other tests for aircraft engineers and flight engineers. It takes more than a month from the day of examination to the declaration of results, thereby taking the total time to two-and-half months.

Moreover, the test for commercial pilot is currently held once in three months.

The proposed examination pattern and system would complete the whole process in a matter of few days.

The directorate general of civil aviation (DGCA) prepares 80 papers for various examinations in a year.

With the aviation regulator facing the huge technical manpower shortage, almost all the processes, starting from issue to hall ticket to candidates to the announcement of results, are adversely affected.

Tips to Crack Multiple Choice Questions

November 21st, 2008

Like it or not, Multiple Choice Tests formats are now being universally adapted for testing Student IQ and knowledge in a particular subject. Students fear multiple Choice exams as some find it confusing and tricky. Some feel that the questions are deliberately phrased that the student chooses the incorrect answer. Well, these are wrong notions. While attempting the MCQ’s, we need to relax and attempt the Test without getting jittery. Here are a few tips that may be of help while attempting the Multiple Choice Entrance Exams.

1. Remember to carefully read the directions for the exam before you begin.

2. Attempt to answer the question without looking at the options.

If necessary, cover the answers with your hand.

3. Eliminate the distractions.

Analyze the options as true/false questions. In a negatively worded question (as in “which of the following are NOT . . .”), put a T or F beside each option, then simply select the false statement.

4. Never be afraid to use common sense in determining your answer.

It is sometimes easy to confuse yourself by attempting to recall the “right” answer rather than simply reasoning through the question. Make sure your answer makes sense.

5. Answer the questions you know first.

Often answers to questions you don’t know are supplied in other questions. Go back to answer the difficult questions later.

6. When guessing, do not change answers.

Research indicates your first answer is usually best. However, don’t be afraid to change answers when you have a good reason for doing so.

7. When guessing, choose answers that are not the first or last option.

Research indicates that the option in the middle with the most words is usually the correct response.

8. Answer all questions.

Unless points are deducted for incorrect responses, leave enough time to answer all questions.

9. If the first option is a correct one, look at the last option to make sure it is not an “all of the above” option.

The same is true for the “none of the above” question.

10. If options appear similar, chances are one of them is the correct


The same is true for quantities that are almost the same.

11. Allow time at the end to check for carelessness.


Medical Council of India recognises 17 Medical Colleges

November 20th, 2008

Medical council of India (MCI) has recognised 17 medical colleges with post-graduate degrees and diplomas, with retrospection, bringing respite to a large number of medical students, parents and doctors who have passed out of these institutions.

Along with 17 colleges, four undergraduate colleges have also been recognised. These include MGM at Navi Mumbai, GMC at Latur and Miraj, and NDMVPS Medical College at Nashik. PDMMC, Amravati is the only college from the list that has not been approved for reasons of shortage of teaching staff of up to 15% and shortage of residents of up to 10%.

“We have tried to simplify procedures and have taken efforts to see that colleges comply with required criteria to be recognised. I have done my duty in a hope that now the immense shortage of teaching staff will be filled up,” said Dr Vasant Pawar, member, MCI, representative, Maharashtra Medical Graduates’ Constituency and MLC.
