While noticing the trends that aspirants are following these days when preparing for JEE Advanced, it is essential they keep in mind a strategy that will make matters easier.
The JEE Advance is not any regular entrance exam and is known to be tough as one needs to have an agile mind to apply tricks to form a particular strategy in solving the entire paper in three hours.
To crack JEE Advanced 2016 with excellent score is not a cake walk, you will surely need to keep few things in mind. Here are some tips to guide you:
Attentive mind and concentration: A candidate needs to be well-focused and be attentive while taking the exam as no matter how well one may know a formula, it is essential to understand it and have deeper clarity of it. He/she should practice the formulae repeatedly to clear all doubts.
Systematise time: Every subject that you cover in JEE Advance needs to be practiced thoroughly and one should always time themselves in order to notice how much time they take on solving every question and how well can they manage their speed. One should distinguish between the easy questions and the ones that take time and solve accordingly so that they do not end up wasting time or leave out important questions that really matter in the performance.
Attainable targets: An aspirant should not make unrealistic promises and goals for himself/herself since that will be a complete disappointment when not attained and can be very demoralising. One should keep daily agendas and reasonable goals that are not way too stressing and hard to fulfil.
Past year tests: It is essential to get to know how to solve a questionnaire and what all topics are covered in it to clear doubts. A brighter picture comes in front of an individual when he/she gets to know exactly how to perform and has an approximate idea of what the questionnaire could be about. To help a candidate gain more confidence, previous test papers should be practiced well.
Thorough revision and analysis: From day one of our educational journey we have been told by our elders to revise topics and never leave a topic if there is the slightest of confusion understanding it.
Essentially it is a must to analysis each subject and topic you go through and gauge your strength and weaknesses so that you know where you stand and which topics you need to lay more focus upon.
Revision on subjects and then testing yourself by practicing questions on the same is bound to give you a clear picture of where more improvement is required.
