Get Started

Get started has links to four subjects:

  • English
  • General Awareness
  • Reasoning
  • Teaching Aptitude

The moment you click on any of the subject, you would be taken to the subject’s homepage.


Subject Home Page

The subject’s homepage would have a ‘Topics’ section and ‘Question Bank’ section, except for Reasoning which has only ‘Question Bank’ section.

Topics Section

This section has a list of topics related with the subject you have chosen. Each topic deals with basic concepts, fundamentals and facts of the subject in order to brush up your memory. The contents are the same that you would have studied while in school or college.

Say for example you are on the Get Started page and you select English, you would land up on English homepage, which has two links on it ‘Topics’ link and the other ‘Question Bank’ link. You click on the ‘Topics’ link and you would land on a page which will have a list of topics related to English grammar like Nouns, Pronouns, Verbs, etc. You select Nouns from the list of topics, you would be taken to a page which will tell you what noun is and the different kinds of nouns are.

The path you would follow is: Get Started – English – Topics - Nouns

Question Bank Section

This section has a list of question bank covering numerous topics of the selected subject, it is not necessary to have a question bank for the topic listed in the ‘Topics’ section. The question bank is presented in a multiple choice format same as that is followed in competitive examinations. The moment you select an option you get instantaneous feedback telling you whether your choice was right or wrong and what the correct answer would have been.

Say for example you are on the Get Started page and you select English, you would land up on English homepage, which has two links on it ‘Topics’ link and the other ‘Question Bank’ link. You click on ‘Question Bank’ link and you would land on a page which will have a list of topics like Active and Passive Voice, Idioms and Phrases, etc. Each topic will have its own set of question bank. From the list you select Active and Passive Voice, you would be taken to a page which will have a direction on how to answer the question, a question, and four or five options to choose from. On selecting one of the options which you think is the right option a feedback window would appear, telling you whether your choice was right and if wrong what the right answer would be. After reading the feedback just press ENTER and you would be taken to the next question in the question bank.

The path you would follow is: Get Started – English – Question Bank – Active and Passive Voice


Key Strokes

While attempting the questions you have the option of either using your mouse for selection or key strokes have been defined for each activity. The key strokes and the activity they execute are listed below:

  • Alt + 1 to select the first option
  • Alt + 2 to select the second option
  • Alt + 3 to select the third option
  • Alt + 4 to select the fourth option
  • Alt + 5 to select the fifth option
  • Alt + N to skip the question and go to the next question
  • Alt + P to go back to the previous question

For JAWS Users

  • Heading 1 – For Direction
  • Heading 2 – For Question
  • Ctrl + INSERT + R - To access the multiple choice options
  • Press Enter to submit your option
  • INSERT + B – To repeat the answer, given in the Dialogue Box
  • Alt + N to skip the question and go to the next question
  • Alt + P to go back to the previous question
    People using JAWS on Mozilla Firefox browser would have to press Insert + B to know whether their selection is right or wrong. This feedback is given on a Javascript enabled pop up window. JAWS in Mozilla Firefox browser by default does not read the content given in a Java script enabled window, JAWS just announces the pop up window’s name but does not read the content of the window. So when JAWS reads the name of the pop up window just press INSERT + B and JAWS would read the content in the Java script enabled window. This way JAWS user’s using Mozilla Firefox browser would not face any problem accessing the question bank.
