The JEE Mains is the must take stepping stone for those who wish to take up the JEE Advanced examination. Preparation is a very crucial factor with regard to this entrance exam as it is with almost every other examination. For the JEE, studying hard is not just enough, you need to study hard. Technique and speed is a vital part of this exam, both of which can be inculcated only over time and only through practice. Timing is crucial when it comes to JEE preparations and here we list out a few pointers as to how to study in a 4 month time constraint.
Cover The Entire JEE syllabus
The JEE syllabus mainly consists of the very same syllabus that you have studied during your 11th and 12th. Therefore, it makes covering the entire syllabus all the more easier. The biggest mistake one can do when preparing for the JEE is to omit certain parts of the syllabus-simply because they might be either too tough or easy to bother or simply because it seems irrelevant. Never omit anything or skip topics, you never when you might regret your decisions. Better safe than sorry, cover the entire syllabus. Total in-depth of each and every point in a topic is not required just understanding the underlying concept behind each topic is more than enough for the JEE exam. Since, the main criterion behind the exam is to test the student’s understanding rather than just their ability to remember a lesson.
Revising what you have studying
Just studying is not enough, you need to revise it over and over again until you are sure that you have learned the main gist behind a topic. Revising is very important, since it helps you master certain topics that you might found difficult in the beginning. Revising the syllabus over and over, helps in strengthening the concepts you have learned. This also happens to be one of the trickiest parts, since you need to revise for your board and entrance exam side by side. Be sure to dedicate yourself equally to both. Understand the basic concepts, formulas and tricks, go through the footnotes that you have prepared while studying as well. These habits will ensure that you’ll leap with joy when you match your answers with that in the JEE Mains 2016 answer key.
Just preparing the entire syllabus is a waste if you do not what you are preparing for. The solution to this lies in taking up as many mock tests as possible. Mock Tests give you a clear idea and understanding of how things work in the exam and also the importance given to each topic. You get a better understanding of how questions have been asked in the previous papers and how they will be asked as well.
Preparing During And After Board Exams
Both the board exams as well as JEE are of equal importance. So, choosing one among the two is impossible. Make optimal use of the holidays between the board exams as well as those after the exams.
