CBSE has announced the dates of Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main and the application form is already out. While most students are busy with pre-board preparation, the JEE preparation should be down simultaneously. If you are still thinking about how you should divide your preparation on a monthly basis to score better marks in this exam and still making your monthly study plan to avoid that last-minute stress and anxiety, don’t fret and refer to the tips enlisted below to ace the JEE Main 2017 in just three months.
Plan a proper routine
Make a good and almost fixed routine for the last one month in which you sleep at right time in night and wake up at say 6 am. You must develop a habit of sitting for 4-6 hours continuously with a break of 30 minutes. This routine should be preferably between 9 am to 3.30 pm.
Thoroughly read NCERT textbook and solve the back exercises rigorously. In addition to that for JEE Main pay due attention to second half of the syllabus in class 11.
Don’t miss out on the important topics
As such, the entire syllabus is important. But there are some topics whose concepts are omnipresent in the rest of the syllabus. It is a must to understand and practice these topics as a good proficiency in these topics will make it easier to understand remaining chapters.
Practice mock papers
The major strategy is to make your base strong with and solve more of practical problems for practicing. It is not possible to find a text which can be called as sufficient enough that just a reading may enable a student to solve problems.
In last two-three days after board exam, practice as many multiple-choice questions as you can. This in turn help the student manage their time as well as strengthen their subjects also help them analyse their weak area.
One needs to practice at least one good question bank designed for JEE. Taking up online mock tests before the final exam will be helpful for students to become well-acquainted with the online system and learn to manage time. yourself after sincere preparation is equally important. So it is required to adopt the reverse process. Solve as many problems as possible and thus build and strengthen your concepts. Hence, it is clear that one need to go through the sample papers.
Refer to the expert tips and videos from a reputed institute
Nowadays, experts/ teachers that have uploaded their videos online for JEE preparation. This will help clear your doubts.
Pay extra attention on the following topics:
Every portion of the syllabus is imperative, but, there are certain topics which require special attention in every subject which form the basis of the entire subject and can serve your purpose of scoring well. These topics can be applied in all other chapters, and therefore, having a thorough understanding of them is important. It is necessary to understand and practice these topics as a good proficiency in these topics will make it easier to understand remaining chapters.
Physics: In physics, the laws of motion, various conservation laws like the conservation of linear momentum, angular momentum, mechanical energy, concept of potential energy and uniformly accelerated motion, field theory (electric, magnetic, and gravitational field) are a must to understand. You should have a fair understanding of Kinematics and Dynamics and it is essential to be able to build a strong problem solving ability. Also, the Theory of Fields (Electromagnetism) is very important. Pay special attention to Optics and Modern physics which is usually neglected by the students.
Chemistry: Physical chemistry is quite scoring; numerical problems can come from this chapters can fetch you real good scores and hence all the units in it must be done carefully. Students tend to neglect Inorganic Chemistry but just a proper understanding of it can prove beneficial. Basic concepts of Organic chemistry and basic concepts of inorganic chemistry must be thoroughly prepared.
Make a schedule of revision plan for inorganic chemistry so that you can go through it 4 – 5 times.
Mathematics: Calculus forms a base for almost every part of Mathematics. Other important and scoring topics are determinants, sequences, permutation, and combination. In addition to this student must also have an in-depth understanding of topics like co-ordinate geometry, vectors and trigonometry. Three-dimensional geometry should be practiced to get that additional or compensating score.
