Tips for JEE Main preparation
Less than six months away, preparation for the Joint Entrance Examination needs to go full steam now without compromising on the preparation for Class 12th board exams. The best way to go about is to manage your time perfectly.
- When you divide the schedule, you can focus on chapter-wise preparation from December to February. In March, board exams should be your sole focus as board exam marks significantly impact your JEE Main rank. Practice JEE Main question papers and participate in our All India Test Series (AITS)as soon as your board exams get over until the examination day to build up speed and polish your preparation.
- While studying a topic, understand it conceptually. Do not try to cram it up. When you solve problems related to it, see how it relates to the problem at hand.
- Cover CBSE syllabus of Class 11 and Class 12 for Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics and use NCERT books as the ‘Bible’ for practice problems. This much is enough. Do not waste your time and energy by meandering on topics not covered in your syllabi. Check out other recommended reference books for JEE!
- Regular study, lots of practice, and developing speed and accuracy are the only keys you need to crack JEE Main 2014.
Tips and tricks to score more in JEE Main
- Take the bottom-up approach. Cover the basics first and solve easy questions. Then move on to moderately difficult questions. Eventually, you will find complicated questions are not so complex after all.
- Practice single digit integer questions well as you just cannot guess the answer in these type of questions.
- Video lectures are especially helpful in Physics as they include diagrams and animations that can help you understand a topic better.
- When you solve a problem, make a list of known and unknown variables and identify the primary unknown variable. Also, make a neat diagram (if required) to understand the question better.
- Last but not the least, do not neglect Chemistry. Devote adequate time for all its three branches - Physical, Inorganic and Organic Chemistry. However, it has been observed that maximum number of questions is asked from Physical Chemistry followed by Organic Chemistry and then, Inorganic Chemistry.
- Practice chemical equations of Inorganic Chemistry regularly so that you do not get confused at the last minute.
- ‘Cyclic compounds’ in Organic Chemistry is an important topic.
- Analysis of previous years' papers show that Class XII syllabus is emphasized more in JEE. Cover Class XI syllabus too but pay more attention to Class XII syllabus.
Tips for the JEE Main exam
There are some general examination day tips that are applicable to both the computer-based exam and the pen-and-paper based exam format, and there are tips specific to the exam format type you are appearing for. All students appearing for JEE Main should:
- Check your admit card as soon as you receive it. If there is any discrepancy in your name, name of the test center, city, category, date of birth, gender, paper, and state code of eligibility, contact JEE (Main) Secretariat immediately.
- Students must carry the admit card and a photo identity proof (which may include voter ID card and driving license (for candidates who are already 18 years old), passport or the school or college ID card) to the exam center.
- Students should carry a small water bottle with them to the examination hall. They should also go to the bathroom before entering the hall as they will not be allowed to leave the examination hall or even their seat before finishing the test.
- No baggage, luggage, gadgets or belongings will be allowed inside the examination center. Also, no printed or handwritten material, pager, mobile phone or bits of paper are allowed inside the examination hall. If such things are found with the students, their candidature will be cancelled. Any type of cheating – use of chits, gadgets, impersonation or bribing staff – will lead to strict legal procedures. Hence, students should leave their belongings at an alternative place where they can be safe until they pick them up, and never stray from the right path!
- In the examination room, eating and smoking is not allowed. It will be in their best interest for the candidates to follow the instructions carefully to avoid any disruption during the exam.
For the computer-based exam
- Make sure you reach the test center at least one and a half hours of the scheduled timing for the exam so that you can complete the registration formalities in time for the exam. Registration desk is closed half an hour before the exams and students are not allowed inside the test center after the exam starts, under any circumstances.
- In case you feel sick during the exam or face technical glitches, contact the invigilator immediately and seek help.
- Students should do their calculations on the rough sheet provided during the exam and hand it over to the invigilator before leaving the examination room or hall.
- Reach the room 30 minutes before the exam is to start and take your seat so that you don’t miss the general instructions. Make sure you are sitting on the seat allotted to you. Sitting on the wrong seat may lead to the cancellation of your candidature.
- Do remember that even though you might get the Test Booklet first, you do not have to open the seal until the invigilator announces so. If the seal is already broken, do point it out the invigilator immediately.
- Student can only use a blue or black ball point pen to fill up the Answer Sheet which they will find inside the test booklet. Side 1 of the sheet will have columns related to the candidate’s information while Side 2 of the Answer Sheet will have a pre-printed Test Booklet Code. Students should also check that this pre-printed code is same as the one printed on the Test Booklet. Do check the number of pages in the booklet you get is the same as printed on the first page of the booklet.
- Since the use of pencil is strictly prohibited, students get only one chance to choose the correct answer. They have to darken the circle completely corresponding to the correct answer of a question and cannot change it later. Faint entries, pencil markings and two circles darkened in a question are unacceptable. While the first two types of errors will reject in rejection of answers by the Optical Scanner the last error will be subject to negative marking.
For the pen-and-paper based exam
- Do not fold the answer sheet or make any stray marks on it. For the rough work, you can use the test booklet.
- Make sure that you do sign the attendance sheet before submitting the answer sheet.
- You can carry the test booklet with you.
Invigilators signal beginning of the test, half-time and end of the test. These signals might help you in time management.
