Its a really diffcult task to do, and i say that you better go for coaching unless and until you have a very good mentor at home.

When you aim for exams like IIT, u have to have very good understanding of concepts, which is very difficult to gain by self!

I don''t say that people without coaching don''t crack exams, but with very poorn ranks.

 

Even if you decide to do it all by yourself, then i had say that you may join some test series organised by some coaching institutes, so that you can realize where you stand.

Dear anju sharma,

You absolutely without any doubt can crack the IIT-JEE and other Competitive Exams just by self-study. You do not need coaching if you feel like you do not need it. I sincerely believe that self-study is the best form of study and I want you to continue with the same.

I certainly believe that the best time to start preparation is at the beginning of 11th class. Students are fresh after the break after boards and a lot more can be learnt. Students who start late often end up leaving some key topics of 11th class JEE syllabus. Also, if you start your preparation in 12th class then the amount of hard work is increased manifold due to additional pressure of 12th boards, so chances of getting a high rank in JEE are decreased. There is a big transition from the mugging up study of 10th class to more understanding based study of 11th class. So you shouldnt get bogged down by seeing the level of complexity in JEE exam.

The first two or three months should be spent in revising your basic concepts (topics like algebra, mecanics) which had been taught in 9th class. Concepts in topics like algebra, mechanics and stoichiometry should be studied in great detail as they also form the basis for other topics and are very scoring. There should be no doubt in your mind about these concepts. For these, develop the habit of inquisition. Clear all your doubts so that mentally you feel confident tackling any concept. A key in this area is problem-solving. Regular problem solving not only strengthens the concepts, but also increases your mental sharpness which is must for JEE.Initially problems of low level should be tried and only when you have mastered them, you should go on to solving intricate JEE type problems. You should have systematic plan for the preparation of JEE. Regular hours should be allotted to mastering concepts and problem-solving. It is not necessary to memorise the lessons and formulae. Understand the derivations of formulae and apply the formulae to solving problems. Slowly these formulae will settle down in your brain and you will be able to recall them under any situation. What is required is a clear understanding and an easy familiarity with the concepts and laws. Maximum attention should be paid to solving problems.Try to be analytical rather than being intutive. Remember that hardwork pays! You should first take up a problem and try to solve it yourself. You should understand what is given and what is required, recall what principles, laws, equations are involved. Dont hurry to see the solution as I doesnt help you to learn. Only when youve pondered over it over a long time and unable to see any light, should you see the solutions. You would be insulting yourself and seriously hurting your chances of success if you skip these problems or make half-hearted attempts in solving them.

Temperal Balance

  • Keep your cool during the paper. If you feel you are getting flustered, close your eyes for some time to regain your composure and concentration.
  • Keep yourself in a cheerful and positive mood.
  • If you feel tension rising during the paper, take deep breaths to release tension.
  • Do not get demotivated or overexcited on seeing the question paper. Keep your balance. Demotivation will make even easy questions appear tough and overconfidence will make you commit silly mistakes.
  • Do not get depressed by tough questions. Instead remind yourself that these questions are tough for every aspirant.
  • Do not get emotionally attached to any question. It is not necessary that you will be able to solve a question from topics you have prepared well.
  • Do not worry about the minimum cut-off marks for JEE. No one knows about the cut-off for sure, but no one has ever been rejected on the basis of any subject-wise minimum cut-off.
  • Do not argue with anyone about anything before the test.
  • Have faith in God and in yourself. Whatever happens to you will be for the best.

Keep depressing thoughts away

  • First of all, realize that you are not the only one facing anxiety. Each IIT-JEE aspirant is facing the same dilemma.
  • Also realize that if you have studied even 60% of JEE syllabus properly, you need not harbour negative thoughts. Your success at the screening test is ensured.
  • Whenever you feel tensed, start a countdown from 50 to 1. It will help you release tension.
  • Light stretching exercise also helps reduce pent-up tension.
  • If you are feeling tensed, do not suffer alone. The company of friends and light chit-chat will help you divert your mind from negative thoughts.

MODERN PHYSICS AND ELECTRONICS :most of the questions easy and similar to past JEE questions.

WAVE OPTICS :most of the questions are similar to past JEE questions

INORGANIC CHEMISTRY AND GENERAL CHEMISTRY :most of the questions are of NCERT level and are simple.

SOLID STATE :Most of the questions are very easy.

PROBABILITY AND DIFFERENTIATION :most of the questions are simple and NCERT level.

DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS :most of the questions are similar to past JEE questions.

By spending legible time on these topics ,the scoring in JEE will be boosted and only will you clear JEE but also get a high rank.But beware , dont neglect there other topics. In topics like mechanics, electricity , physical chemistry and analytical geometry , if the concepts are clearly understood then many of the questions pertaining to these topics can be easily handled.

 

Hope this helped you immensely..!

All the Very Best & Good Luck to you ..!!
