Create a Study Schedule 

 

Now that you know everything about the IIT JEE Main, it is time to focus on the syllabus and create a study schedule. First, take note of the complete syllabus for each section - Maths, Physics, and Chemistry. Then, mark the topics as:

  • Don’t know/ Have not studied yet 
  • Easy/ Have studied before 
  • Moderate/ Have some knowledge about it 

 

You need to start studying the topics that you have not studied before and keep revising the topics that you have studied before side by side. 

 

Divide your study time in different blocks and assign different tasks/subjects/topics to each block. 

 

For example, if you have to attend school from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm. You will have time in the evening or at night to study for IIT JEE Main. In that time you can:

  • Study Maths/ practice Maths questions for one hour everyday (say from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm)
  • Study one new topic of Chemistry/Physics every alternate day (say from 7.30 pm to 8:30 pm)
  • Revise one topic of Chemistry/Physics at night every alternate day (say from 10:00pm to 11:00pm) 

 

You can alter your schedules based on your timing or when you feel the most energetic. Moreover, if you pay attention in the classroom and practise all NCERT topics thoroughly, you will be able to master all the basics of IIT JEE Main. 

 

Then, you can practise IIT JEE Main previous year papers or sample papers on the weekends (Saturday and Sunday).
