You can log on any time and spend any amount of time ( from a few minutes to look at the solution of a question, to a couple of hours to take a test, view all solutions and review concepts through Revision Notes) . An effective use of the resources at Meritnation.com to supplement and accelerate your learning will largely depend on your judicious selection of the chapters/topics presented to you and the order in which you choose to review them.
How will the Formative Assessment System help me learn faster?
The Formative Assessment System is an adaptive assessment (test) engine designed to measure a student's understanding of the underlying concepts and uniquely identify every individual student's weak areas within a given topic. The questions that a student sees will be based on his/her response to the previous question, thereby no two students will see exactly the same set of questions.
The three steps in "Formative Assessment" are:
Step 1: Take an assessment (test)
Step 2: View report that summarizes your performance.
Step 3: Get a customized study plan on the basis of your performance
Thus, the Formative Assessment System helps create an environment that facilitates faster and effective learning.
Can I take Formative Assessment for a topic more than once?
The Formative Assessments available on Meritnation.com help in identifying concepts that you are weak in. The adaptive nature of the Formative Assessment system thus begins its process of searching for 'weak links' in your understanding of concepts from the minute you mark your response to the first question. The system therefore does not allow you to re-take the assessment for a given topic once you have completed it.
I am unable to locate certain questions in your NCERT solutions. Why is that so?
We have taken care to ensure that our NCERT Solutions are aligned exactly to the questions in the NCERT textbooks. However, if you are unable to locate a question, please write in to
us with your user name, class, subject, name of the chapter, and the question along with the specific question number as per NCERT textbook. Please send these details at email@example.com and we will revert with the solution.
Are the NCERT solutions updated as per the latest curriculum?
Yes, the NCERT solutions available on Meritnation.com are aligned to the latest curriculum. The end-of-chapter NCERT solutions are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure that students access only updated and relevant content.
While trying to view the free NCERT solutions for my class I am able to view only the question and not the solution. Why is that so and how can I view the solutions for all the questions?
In order to view the free NCERT solutions available on the website you will need to register with Meritnation.com. If you already have an account you will need to log in using your Meritnation ID and password to view the NCERT solutions available on Meritnation.com. Registering on Mertination.com is free.
Where can I view the videos & animations for my class?
The videos & animations are integrated with the relevant study material and are available inside the Study Material organized topic wise for every chapter. To view sample videos for your class, go to 'Demos & Samples'. In addition you may also view relevant videos for your class under the 'Resources' tab. These are videos selected by Meritnation Experts from the web and arranged class-wise.
I am unable to listen to the audio and/or view the videos on your site? What could be the possible reason?
If you are unable to listen to the audio or view the video on our site, please check the speed of your Internet connection and also ensure that your PC has a Flash player. You'll need a broadband connection with at least 256+ Kbps for best viewing experience.
Is it sufficient if I only read the study material?
While 'Study material' is intended to clarify your understanding of concepts, it is equally important to assess your learning through Test Papers, Activities and Formative Assessments. Additionally, you can always count on the 'Revision Notes' to help you immensely as you prepare for your exams.
How do the interactive games and activities help me learn?
The interactive games and activities help to speed up the learning process by providing the learner an opportunity to learn by 'doing'. This active involvement of the learner helps in revising concepts previously learned, while at the same time keeping the fun element in the learning process intact.
I am not able to view the activities on the website. What do I need to do to be able to view the same?
You will need to have 'Adobe Flash' player installed in your system to be able to view the activities. In order to download 'Adobe Flash' simply click on the link below and follow the steps mentioned to download the player. If the problem persists, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How will Revision Notes help me prepare for my exams?
Revision Notes are concise, end-of-chapter highlights that will help you to quickly revise the main concepts just before an exam. These ready-to-use Revision Notes are complete with diagrams and simple illustrations to help in quickly understanding key concepts. You can even print these notes to keep them handy for last minute revisions.
Revision Notes for all subjects are available under the 'Test Papers’ section that is next to the 'Study Center’ tab. Along with Revision Notes, the Test Papers section also contains Model Tests and Solved Board Papers for your class to help you accelerate your preparations before exams.
I am unable to download PDF files, how do I get the same?
In order to download the PDF files you need to have the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed in your system. In case you face a problem while downloading the PDF files, please follow the given procedure:
Login to http://get.adobe.com/reader/ and follow the steps mentioned to download the reader. If you are still unable to download the same, mail us at email@example.com with the details of your login name, class, name of the chapter and name of the revision note that you wish to download.
Is studying using the Revision Notes enough to guarantee a good performance in the exams?
Revision Notes are intended to help students quickly refresh their memory for all important concepts in the chapter. However, to make the revision exercise thoroughly effective students should also go through the Practice Tests available for every chapter and also take the full-course Model Test papers. A thorough revision exercise such as this alone can help students face their exams confidently.
What are the benefits of taking chapter-wise Practice Tests?
Chapter-wise Practice Tests help to assess your understanding of key concepts in a chapter. These tests are available in MCQ & descriptive formats to help you evaluate your proficiency levels for the chapter, before you proceed to the next chapter.
The Model Test papers available at Meritnation.com are full-course tests that help you thoroughly measure your preparedness before the final examinations. Revising using these Model Test Papers towards the end of the academic year just before the final exams is a good way to use them. Model Test Papers give you an opportunity to check how well you have understood the concepts, and at the same time when taken with complete seriousness like a 'real’ exam, these can also help develop effective exam-taking skills.
How will the Reports help me to evaluate my performance on the tests?
The performance report not only show the marks obtained by you in that particular test but also gives explanations for incorrect choices. This performance report also contains a detailed comparative report that compares your performance with that of other students across the country. This report also recommends customized study material to help improve in your weak areas. The performance reports on Meritnation.com thus help assess preparation levels accurately, and take timely remediation action, if required.
The Personality Tests on Meritnation.com are a collection of 20 scientifically devised tests that are based on extensive research in various areas of personality. These tests enable you to

What are aptitudes? Why should I take an Aptitude Test?

Having a clear idea about your strengths and weaknesses will enable you to improve in your weak areas and polish your strengths, as you work towards realizing your career goals.
