Tips to Crack JEE Advanced in 1 Year

 

Is one year sufficient to prepare for JEE Advanced? We say yes! It is absolutely enough to brush up on all the topics and practice numericals to prepare yourself for JEE Advanced. Today, we are going to share the best tips and strategies on how to accomplish this goal and get the best scores in JEE Advanced. 

 

JEE Advanced is one of the toughest entrance examinations conducted in India. It includes two papers (Paper 1 and Paper 2), both of 3 hours each. The candidates have to appear in both the papers. Each paper includes three sections - Physics, Chemistry, and Maths. Both these papers are designed to judge the conceptual knowledge of the students along with analytical, aptitude, and critical thinking skills of the students. 

 

  • There will be three types of questions in paper 1 - MCQs with a single correct option, MCQs where more than one option is correct, and numerical value answer-type questions. 
  • There will be three types of questions in this paper 2 - MCQs with single correct option, numerical value answer type questions and single-digit answer type questions. 
  • In some questions, there is negative marking except for the numerical value answer-type questions. 

 

Subject-wise Preparation Tips for IIT JEE Advanced 2022-2023

 

Physics Preparation Tips for JEE Advanced 

Many students follow this methodology of practising only those questions that are commonly asked in JEE Advanced over the past years. This strategy is good to understand the exam pattern but it is not enough. Students must consider the complete syllabus and weightage of every topic in the JEE Advanced and practice questions accordingly from different books or study materials. 

 

Quick tips: 

  • Practice questions related to electromagnetism and mechanics. 
  • Focus more on numerical problems in Physics. 
  • Practice a variety of questions and do not just focus on previous year questions.

You can see that electromagnetism and mechanics weightage is almost equal to 65%. This means you need to focus more on these topics. The best thing about these topics is that most of the questions are conceptually based. Now comes the units that involve more numerical and formula-based questions. These are Optics and Properties of Matter (15% weightage) and Modern Physics (10% weightage). Finally, there is the Heat and Thermodynamics section which constitutes a weightage of 10%. It generally includes basic formula-based questions that you can practice easily. 

 

Keep in mind that you have to stick to conceptual understanding of every topic. It will then be very easy for you to solve the questions. Do not study too much in-depth as it will confuse you. Consult a tutor to understand how much you should study in a topic. 

 

Maths Preparation Tips for JEE Advanced 2022

Mathematics is considered the most difficult section of this paper. 35% of weightage is given to Calculus while Vector and 3D account for 30% of the exam. Then, coordinate geometry accounts for 25% of the paper while Algebra accounts for 10%. Given below is the topic-wise weightage for JEE Advanced 2022 Mathematics.

Quick tips:

  • Daily practice is a must in case of Maths. 
  • Keep all concepts on your fingertips. 
  • Study important chapters first. 
  • In algebra, most questions are asked from Complex Number, Permutation Combination and Probability. 


Chemistry Preparation Tips for JEE Advanced 2022

Chemistry in JEE Advanced can be divided into physical, organic and inorganic chemistry. Physical chemistry questions are typical and comprise 30% of the paper. Physical chemistry requires a lot of practice and students must study all the topics thoroughly. Then, 40% of questions are from organic chemistry which include reaction-based questions and application-based questions. Again, you need complete practice to master these 40% of questions.

  • Inorganic chemistry can take more time so make sure you do not take this section lightly. 
  • Focus more on conceptual questions. 

 

Smart Ways to Prepare for JEE Advanced in 1 Year

 

What’s the secret of JEE Advanced toppers? What do they do to get the highest rank in JEE Advanced? How much do they study in a day? Do I need to study 10 hours a day to crack JEE Advanced in a year? All these kinds of questions are quite common amongst students. Well, do not stress yourself. Just follow these smart ways and you will be able to master JEE Advanced syllabus and exam pattern in 1 year:

 

  • JEE Advanced Online Coaching: The best way to stay on track with your JEE Advanced preparations is to enrol in an online coaching. This way you will not only study regularly for the entrance exam but you will also get your doubts solved, study from the latest learning materials, and track your progress. 
  • Previous Year Papers: Another smart way to prepare for JEE Advanced in 1 year is to start practising previous year papers as soon as possible. The more you practice, the better you will be able to understand the exam pattern. It will make you familiar with the types of questions asked in the examination. 
  • Study Schedule and Goals: You must have a daily agenda of how many topics you have to study/revise and how many questions you need to practise for each subject. Without a study schedule you will not be able to track your progress and understand how far you have to go. Moreover, planning your study routine will help you visualise how much you have to study on a daily/weekly/monthly basis to complete the syllabus. 

 

Revision Tips for JEE Advanced Preparation

 

The more you revise, the more you memorise. We do not expect you to remember everything that you have learnt. This is why you need to keep revising the topics again and again so that you can memorise them better. Here are some easy ways to do that:

 

  • Formula sheets: Formula sheet is a paper or a document in which you note down all important formulae that you study. You can create separate formula sheets for the three subjects and use them for revising the formulae. 
  • Create a schedule: If you have studied a topic today, make a schedule to revise it at least a week after. Then, block your time to revise it after 10 days and so on. Keep increasing the gap in your revision sessions. This way you will be able to understand how well you remember a topic. 
  • Use different strategies: Some students take notes in ways that facilitates easy revision such as using the Cornell Method, the Outline Method or the Charting Method. You can also pick up a way and create your JEE Advanced notes like that. You can use revision notes provided by askIITians experts for JEE Advanced topics. You can also use mind maps, diagrams and audio notes for revision.
