Hello, JEE Aspirants!
As you all know that JEE Main Exam is the gateway for admission in the country’s top engineering and technical institutes. This is the first exam which will be carried out to select candidates for JEE Advanced.
In 2018, total 11350845 students registered for JEE Main Exam, out of which only 231,024 qualify for JEE Advanced Exam. So, you need to be well prepared if you want to crack the JEE Main. JEE Main have 90 questions in total with 30 in each subject i.e. in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. Each question carries 4 marks and -1 negative marking. It’s a fact that your Main Exam’s scores totally depend on your 1-2 years’ preparation but the last few days are also quite crucial. So here we bring you some tips which you should keep in mind while giving the final strokes to JEE Main Preparation before a week and a day before the exam.
Below is the revision strategy for IIT JEE that involves working smarter, not harder.
Identify Your Weak Topics
The focus now should be much more on the topics you are weak in. That’s because revision is something more than just solving the same content over and over again. It is about ensuring how much you have in your head at that time. It is about covering some particular things which aren’t there but should be! So let’s get started.
Arrange a Good Revision Package
This is an essential step because solving the same material repeatedly does not do much good. Instead, during this phase, you should give higher priority to solving problems involving multiple concepts in a single problem. This tests your understanding of different topics and their application. Any coaching material would be useful, provided it is close to the level of the JEE. So, you got the revision package – check one. Next you have to start solving it with utmost sincerity. Most of them are organized chapter-wise, followed by some part-syllabus and full-syllabus tests.
Read a Lot of Theory While Building up Your Weak Areas
It is natural to discover some loopholes in your JEE Preparation at this phase. You should be happy to identify them now as you still have time to fix them. At this stage, solving a lot of problems won’t help if your concepts are unclear. So what to do? First things first, get a good reference book and circle the particular topic you feel uncomfortable with. Read sufficient theory and solve/go through all the unsolved problems in this new book.
After that, you should feel comfortable with solving basic problems. Gradually go for slightly more difficult ones from the primary modules you used during your earlier preparation. After these two checkboxes are ticked, finally solve that particular topic from the Revision Package.
Remember, this point will take some extra time. Don’t hesitate to devote this extra time to it outside of your regular revision schedule. After all, at the end of the day, it’s you and only you who is responsible for the successful completion of the syllabus
Attempt Many Mock Tests
In your studies thus far you have been solving many problems, you have tried many books, several chapter-based tests, etc. But all this will go down the drain if you don’t give a good number of properly monitored mock tests in exam-like situations. For that, you need to join a good test series. Any of the test series offered by reputed coaching institutes will work.
The vital importance of the test series is something that I can’t adequately describe in one paragraph. It is essential for each and every student aspiring to clear the JEE with a good rank. You can check out the profiles of any of the top-ranking students and see that most, if not all of them enrolled in some institute’s test series.
Think about it. You don’t want to spoil your JEE just because you get upset about something on exam day and it throws you off your game. Likewise, you don’t want to get distracted because you couldn’t handle your excitement at seeing an easy paper, or the marking scheme bogged you down, or you suspect you underperformed, or even because you attempted a lot of questions and got them all wrong! No matter what happens, if it completely throws your concentration on game day, you can be defeated before you even start.
