Preparation Tips for JEE Advanced
- Focus: Focus more on understanding topics rather than just formulae. This way, you can ensure that you imbibe the method used to arrive at the formulae. Doing so will also ensure that those formulae are always at your fingertips.
- Organise your time: Watch the time taken to solve questions. Subject-wise allocation of time will help you attempt the JEE Advanced paper within the given time constraint. This will also help in exam-simulation. While in the exam, you should be able to filter out the easy questions from the difficult ones, so you know the amount of time you need to allot to them.
- Keep taking breaks: Talk to friends once in a while, and don’t bury your social life entirely.
- Fulfil targets on a daily basis: Your daily study plan must include learning. So assign daily goals for yourself and fulfil them. This will boost your confidence and avoid time wastage.
- Practice solving sample papers: Once you are thorough with a concept or chapter, solve previous years’ papers (for the last 8-10 years at least). This will guide you through the transitions in question patterns and will prepare you to anticipate themSubject-wise planning: Based on your preference, select subject-wise topics and cover them each day. Remember, your weakness may be someone else’s strength so never ignore a less favourite topic. Refer the latest JEE Advanced syllabus for your study plan.
- Clarity in concepts: Develop a clear thinking process so that the moment you see a question, you know the correct theory or formula to be used.
- From basics to classics: Always start from the fundamentals and then gradually move further. In this way, you can tackle even a difficult problem as you are well-versed with the concept. Jumping straightaway to an advanced problem is not a good idea.
- Numericals are crucial: Solving enough numericals is crucial to crack JEE Advanced. Practise at least 40-50 numericals for each day of your JEE Advanced preparations. With subjects like Maths, Physics and Chemistry, there is no dearth of numerical problems. Edumateplus brings you a huge question bank, with quality questions to test yourself and solutions to keep learning simultaneously.
- Save your best for last: Study more crucial sections of the syllabus in the beginning and push easier ones for later. Mark difficult portions in your notes so that revision towards the end becomes easier.
- Discuss with your peers: Discussing and clearing doubts with fellow aspirants and mentors can help you overcome your weaknesses. Interact with them without any hesitation to devise an efficient study plan for yourself.
