VIJAYAWADA: Subject experts at a seminar on `Zoom on IIT-JEE' organised by Nalanda Educational Institutions here on Saturday advised the students to master fundamentals to achieve their goal in the prestigious national examination. They pointed out that students who had received coaching and those who did not, would both enjoy equal opportunity in the changed examination pattern.

D.C. Pandey, who authored physics books for students preparing for IIT-JEE, said that 60 well-prepared students would vie with one another to secure a seat in IIT through the entrance examination. "That is why this examination can be called the toughest one. This kind of competition is not witnessed even in the US universities," Prof. Pandey said.

Stating that IIT entrance examination was more a losers' game, Prof. Pandey said that the less number of mistakes a student would make, the more prospect of he or she succeeding in the examination.

P. Bahadur, author of several chemistry books, said that a student should be strong in basics of the subject. The students should work hard and adopt a disciplined approach in pursuing the examination.
