How to start your JEE Main & Advanced Preparation !

Preparing for the JEE exam will be one of the most rewarding things for your career and days to come. Having basics in Physics, Maths and Chemistry can really open up a lot of avenues for you in the future. The JEE main and the advanced examination has evolved over the past many years.

It can be broadly divided into 11 different parts :

  1. Time management

  2. Follow a schedule / Prepare plan

  3. Know the syllabus and the exam pattern well, weightage

  4. Coaching classes - Online or Offline ? Self-study

  5. Study concepts, solve problems, look at solutions

  6. Solve previous years papers

  7. Take timed practice test series

  8. Group study, hangout more with toppers

  9. Health is wealth

  10. Manage Distractions-Self control app

  11. Retrospect your day

1. Time Management : Bear in mind that without time management no magic is going to help you reach your goals. Time - nothing is more precious than this~ Realizing this fact of planning , we can make time our friend rather than making it our foe. Always remember - "You need to work smarter in addition to working hard"

There is a difference between sitting with a book 15-16 hours a day and actually studying 15-16 hours a day. Managing your time is the most crucial thing that you need to focus on. Not only this, you also need to manage your time during the 3 hours of your actual JEE Main / Advanced exam.

Here are the 5 key mantras of Time Management for JEE Exam Preparation.

  1. Complete the most important tasks first : Once you have done the important task first, you will have a sense of accomplishment and that will lead you to the next important task.

  2. Learn to Say NO to friends & family : Friends and family are always going to be around but if you lose these valuable two years of preparation, you are not going to get this time back either. So, you decide!

  3. Don't procrastinate and aim for incremental improvement.

Above image is a great analogy of Incremental improvement. It is called the 1.01 Law:

  • When we put that out 1% more effort every day, our progress can grow by 3800% in one single year.

  • When we slack of 1% every day, we do not progress; rather we push ourselves to failure!

If you do not like a subject then do not waste time by postponing it, take baby steps towards studying it and gradually you will become a master!

  1. Turn important tasks into habits - There is a well known theory that for any task to become a habit you need to do it for 21 days at stretch, and it will eventually become a habit. Make it a habit of revising important formulae and concepts in the morning, especially those which you studied the previous day. Follow this tip and it will work wonders.

  2. Set a time-duration to everything you do - Our brain is a funny object! If you tell it that you have just 1 hour to study a chapter, it will give you reverse feedback and make sure that you finish it in not more than an hour.

However, if you set aside 4 hours for something that could be done easily in 1 hour, our brain will be slow in that process and it will end up making you take those 4 hours to complete the task-what a waste of time.

2. Follow a Schedule, Make a Plan : Make a To-Do List Remember, about making a habit in the last point. Right from tomorrow, when you get from bed, make it an habit to spend 15 - 30 minutes to plan your day. Planning your day will set the fact in your brain that you have X number of tasks to complete and thereby you will waste much less time. See, how time management and planning you day are so related!

Here is how you can plan you day in 7 easy steps :

2.1. First, get a calendar, a diary and a pen - to make a planner to routine up your time. Always remember you have to utilize every bit of time you have got. Check your dates and make an organized plan for your upcoming preparations which is going to save a lot of time of yours, after all time is our personal asset we can't waste it right ?

2.2 You have to wisely plan your schedule. You have to mark your priorities first the work you cannot skip like lunch, classes and seminars.

2.3 Point out a long time of your day for studying which will be your main job for these days. You will be mostly busy during the day with school, Classes - so allot time for after evening for your self-study. Take a short break period between every other subject you study and a little for reviews.

2.4 Your Health and fitness are crucial for a good preparation. Keep some time aside for yoga or exercises which will reduce your stress and help you to relax. Find out time to play or exercise daily. You will be surprised to know that bad health is one of the top reasons why hard working students fail to secure top Ranks in JEE!

2.5 Plan your activities wisely as well as logically like, take a copy of your notes with you whenever you step out of your house.

.6 Sometimes when you fell sleepy between your schedule don't just lie down and let yourself fall asleep instead take a break and walk to around. Power naps are something that you might consider, though. For example:

2.7 Don't rush to study all the time instead get enough sleep which will refresh your mind and body and will help you to work more effectively.

3. Know the syllabus and the exam pattern well (including weightage) The JEE Main and Advanced Syllabus is vast and in order to get a very good rank you must make sure that you go through all the 3 subjects and have almost equal command over all of them.

You should study all the important topics first and then solve ample problems in order to gain mastery over them. Certain topics in the JEE Main & Advanced syllabus has more weightage over others, so lying more stress on these important topics will help you score more marks in the actual exam and thus fetching you a top rank!

The tough topics obviously have more weightage so without any concession you ought to study them properly. Also, this would let you divide your time well in advance among the various subjects.

4. Coaching Classes - Online or Offline ?

Coaching classes are a crucial part of your JEE Preparation. Be it Main or Advanced, having crystal clear concepts will always help you in scoring high and getting that extra edge over others in the exam.

Advantages of Online Classes for JEE :

  • Study at your own pace

  • Refer to video lectures over and over again

  • Study from the comfort of your home, no need to travel to the coaching centers.

  • Track your progress easily using online tools

  • Ask multiple questions & doubts

  • Online study groups promote quick interaction

Disadvantages of Online Classes for JEE:

  • No face - to - face interaction with other students

  • Easy to lose track get lost in the overwhelming syllabus

Advantages of Offline Classes for JEE:

  • Direct interaction with the teacher

  • Interaction and networking with fellow students

  • Set schedule for going through different topics

Disadvantages of Offline Classes for JEE :

  • Can't ask lot of doubts to the teacher owing to time limitations

  • Traveling to and from the coaching institute will make you tired and is a big waste of time.

Whatever it is, in both the media of coaching, the student has to devote time separately for self-study. After learning new concepts in the coaching class, you must try to apply these concept and solve ample problems.

5. Study concepts, solve problems, look at solutions No matter how many coaching classes you join or how many more study materials / books you buy, you have to spend time studying these materials and lecture notes. Self-study is one of the most important aspects of your JEE Main & Advanced preparation. The more time you devote towards clearing your concepts in various topics of Physics, Chemistry and Maths - the better are your chances of getting a top rank in the JEE NCERT books are a must of starting and finishing your JEE Preparation. You can also refer to additional books for more concepts clearing and strengthening your fundamentals. Now comes the most important part after you finish studying-problem solving and concept building. You should solve as many problems as you can after going through a topic. The more you practice, the more your foundation becomes stronger. Looking through solutions is a good way to learn different methods of solving questions. But you should refer solutions only after you try the question sincerely as your first attempt.

Group Study

Studying in groups can be another effective way to study, provided you find the right partner to study with. Studying in groups can also accelerate your JEE preparation and you can see yourself achieving more in less time.

6. Solve previous years' papers : Always remember, there is nothing called a new question. The JEE Main or Advanced examiners have to test students year after year on the same concepts in order to establish the credibility of the student as to whether or not he or she is capable of making it to the IIT or NITs! And, questions do repeat. More than that, solving previous year's JEE question papers help you understand the mindset of the teachers and professors who actually set these questions for the Mains or Advanced exam. Apart from this, you get additional confidence by solving questions that had appeared on an actual JEE Exam which is a testimony to the fact that you will be able to tackle similar problems in your JEE exam pretty easily. "Concepts never change, problems change. And with so many years that are passing by since the first JEE took place; students are tested on the same concepts year after year"

7. Take time-bound practice test series "Practice makes a man perfect" – is a very old saying that is valid in any field of life. You want to be a good singer? You need to practice a lot first! Same applies to your JEE preparation. The only way you can work your way through to a top rank in the JEE Main or Advanced exam is to practice a lot. Our brain has a special type of brain tissue called myelin that plays a key role in helping us acquire and master skills. It has been proven a research that any neural activity in the brain that has been induced by practicing something causes the growth of Myelin - the very tissue that helps us master something. But, note that practicing blindly won't cut it. You have to practice those problems which test your concepts in a challenging way. Vince Lombardi, world famous American Football player and coach, once said - "Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect." Apart from practicing single questions you should also take full length time-bound part tests to gauge your progress and also work on your speed-like how fast you can solve a problem and how well you can finish your exam in time. You should also join an All India Test Series to test yourself against thousands other smart students on an All India Level. This will help you find out where you stand in reality - what all topics you are weak in and where you need to work harder. However, remember to practice both tough as well as easy problems. Don't get carried away trying to solve just the tough ones.

8. Follow the toppers, find a Mentor - "you become whom you hang out with" This is a well known fact that "You are the Average of the 5 People You Spend the Most Time With".

9. Health is Wealth The most crucial factor in your entire JEE exam is nothing but your health. If you stay healthy throughout the entire 1 or 2 year preparation period for JEE up to the actual exam date, then you can expect the best rank provided you gave your best on the final exam. If you are not healthy, you will come across so many distractions that your preparation will not be as effective as it would have been otherwise. Here are some proven health tips that you might want to keep in mind:

  • Take out 30 min to 45 min from your schedule to do some light exercise or play games like Badminton, football or cricket.

  • Take bath regularly

  • Eat more green leafy vegetables and proteins

  • Drink enough water regularly

Avoid processed food like chips, soft drinks, kurkure etc. These can be consumed once in a while.

10. Limit Distractions like Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram With so many online portals these days like Facebook, Whatsapp chat, Instagram, LinkedIn and Instagram - it is very easy to waste time and completely get lost in them. These distraction can negatively affect your preparation and let you down in a Big way.

11. Retrospect your day After you have finished studying for the day, spend 10 - 15 minutes thinking what have you achieved during the entire day. Lay stress on things like:

  1. Where did you waste your time most ?

  2. How can you optimise your time better for tomorrow ?

  3. Could you achieve your plan for the day?

  4. If not, how can you tweak your timings to study more effectively?

Thinking about things like these will not only help you keep your preparation in check for the coming 2 years, it will also help you in the long run to become an organized individual!
