Revision related tips
- About 20 days before the JEE Screening Test, start getting acquainted with a wide variety of topics to improve the range of numericals you can attempt. Do not attempt lengthy questions, and focus instead on objective, numerical questions to practice as many types of questions as you can. You should look at breadth rather than depth in these 20 days.
- Revise all important concepts and formulae, so that they are on your tips and come to you without any effort or thought.
- The screening paper gives equal weightage to all three subjects – and so should your screening preparation.
- Remember - The screening test has negative marking for wrong answers. So your familiarity with concepts will be crucial if you take the calculated risk of logical guessing.
Things to keep in mind one day before the examination:
- You need at least 6-8 hours of sleep before the examination to keep yourself fresh while solving questions.
- Eat a light meal so that you do not feel drowsy or lethargic during the paper.
- Revise only those topics that you have studied earlier. Do not start reading any new topics just before the examination, since this will be a waste of time and you may lose the information you have already grasped.
- You should reach the test center at least half an hour before the exam and if you haven't seen the center before, then you must go and visit the center on the day before the exam.
Note: If your examination center is in another city-
- Reach the city positively on the day before the exam.
- Ensure the place of your stay there is calm, clean and conducive to study.
- In actuality it does not make any difference whether the center is in your city or in some other city. So get the fear of an unknown city out of your mind.
- Never go to the center on an empty stomach. Always keep biscuits, fruits etc. handy.
- Some students complain of nausea or headache close to the test. So keep relevant medicine handy.
- If you plan to ride your own vehicle to the center, ensure it is in proper running condition and has enough fuel in its tank.
- If you do not have a vehicle, ensure a means of traveling that reaches you to the center well in time, and give at least half an hour of time for unforeseen delays like traffic jams and rush hour traffic.
- Keep a wristwatch, your permission letter, a pen, two pencils (sharpened at both ends), an eraser, a sharpener and other relevant stationary systematically with you.
