Soon the result will be out and there will be many who would rejoice and simultaneously some will silently either turn their ways or start preparing for the next time. Those who took the exam know what result they are going to get. But ultimately, result is result and until it is declared, nothing can be stated with certainty. There are many who are confident that they will top the merit list. There are also some candidates who know that they will not be able to get their names in the merit list. Others are in confusion whether the result will be positive or negative. Those who are confident, they are now preparing to tread the further road in life. They are busy arranging funds and making preparations to relocate to some new and quaint places. Those who are confident of their failure must start working to mend the ways of their life. They must learn from their errors and resolve not to commit the same mistakes again. Were the questions of JEE Main quite tough? Was it easier than the previous year examinations or more difficult with the increased level of complexities? The opinions vary from person to person. High level entrance-examinations like JEE are always tough and it is the only way that the talent can be identified. Why do you think for some it was difficult? Well, the answer is that they were either less smart or lacked proper preparation. In such examinations, being intelligent alone does not suffice. Often the average candidates score well and the so called intelligent ones lag behind. Tough exams always call for rigorous practice and preparation. So those who consistently work hard, get success and those considering themselves extraordinarily over-smart, regret a lot in their life. There are also some candidates who fail even after working hard to the extent of using all their energy and strength. Why do you think it happens? Isn’t the Divinity with them? You should understand that hard work may be the key to success, but hard work alone is not always sufficient to guarantee success. Hard work is mandatory for success, but this should be guided in the right direction. You may work hard, but the things you exert your efforts on may not be the appropriate ones. You need to press the accelerator and not the brake if you wish to increase the speed of your car. So, you should work hard, but it should also be a smart work. Right thing must be done in the right time and in a right manner. The result of JEE Main will open the door to bright future for many and meanwhile it will also cause tears in many hearts. The result will also compel many to learn a tough lesson to survive and progress in life. Those aspiring to appear in JEE 2014 must not procrastinate to move towards practice and preparation.

Even though the written tests that you need to pass to obtain your driver’s license are not extremely difficult, taking them can be a bit stressful, particularly for young drivers who don’t have an extensive experience in driving. A lot of people are nervous about failing their DMV exam, and having to take it over and over again. But, if you take your time and prepare for the test, by studying the DMV driver’s manuals, and by taking a couple of online practice tests, you will be confident in yourself and your knowledge, which will help you remain calm and not be nervous when taking the test. In addition to the driver’s handbook and practice tests, there is another tool that can help you prepare for the written knowledge test. Various DMVs around the country have developed mobile apps that provide you with information on what the tests look like and allow you to test your knowledge of the rules of the road. One such app is the South Carolina DMV exam app, developed by the state Department of Motor Vehicles, which is intended to teach new drivers how to share the road safely with other road users, and help them pass the DMV exam on their first take. The app has a lot of useful features. For starters, there is the Driver’s License Practice Exam, which includes hundreds of practice questions that are similar to those in the actual DMV exam. It’s a great way to see whether you have learned the material provided in the driver’s handbook, and whether you are ready to go to the DMV and take the test, or you need to study a little bit more. It can also be very helpful to those who have just moved to South Carolina and need to learn the specific traffic laws that apply in this state. Another example of a mobile app that can come in handy to those preparing for their DMV written exam is the “DMV NOW” app, that was created by the California Department of Motor Vehicles. It also offers sample questions that are supposed to help determine whether you know what each traffic sign means and whether you are familiar with the rules of the road. Additionally, it provides DMV educational videos, that offer instructions on how to make an appointment for your DMV exam and how to deal with various DMV-related matters. These videos are also intended to help improve road safety, by providing information about the risks of cell phone use while behind the wheel, which can be of great help to young drivers, as they are very susceptible to distracted driving, as well as by offering safe driving tips and how to avoid aggressive driving and explaining the rules of the road. Considering that taking a DMV written exam can be a pretty nerve-wracking experience, and many people fail their exams on their first take, you have to try and make sure you are well prepared for it, and these types of mobile apps are an excellent tool that can help you with that.
