JEE is an important exam for engineering aspirants but as the exam date gets closer, a lot of students feel apprehensive whether they have prepared properly or not or what if they commit mistakes while writing down the exam.
Therefore, we answer some of your questions that might trouble you few days before the JEE (Main) exam:
What to do now?
You have done everything you could have. On the last day keep attempting questions from the source you have been using so far. No need to browse through books. In order to evaluate your current preparedness, you are advised to attempt previous years papers or join a short contact programme as a crash course. This will help you quickly revise through all topics in a competitive environment. Additionally, you may take up mock tests online and access your strengths and weaknesses.
Try and relax by reading newspaper/ magazines etc. Go for a walk in the evening but avoid eating outside. Stay healthy as this also contributes towards your performance.
The competition is stiff. Can I make it?
The competition is stiff for everybody. What you should be thinking at this time is not whether you will make it or not but how to give your best with the preparation you have done.
What if the paper is tough?
The important issue is to always maximise your performance. This means irrespective of the nature of the paper you must do all those questions, which you know of. If you do that you don’t have to worry because the paper is tough for everybody.
If the pattern changes what do I do?
All the information about the nature of the paper, which has been revealed before, will remain unchanged. Inspite of this be prepared for some changes. This means expect changes to happen. Your strategy need not change.
There are a couple of things that I had not done properly. Shall I do them now?
No! Don’t do anything now that you have not done in the last one or two years. Just do some questions or revise formulae/scientific names etc that you have done before.
My friends know more than me. How do I stand the chance of succeeding among them?
Selection in any entrance exam is based on 50 per cent knowledge base, analytical base and memory while the other 50 per cent is being able to do all you can do in the exam. Talent is important; converting talent into result is vital. You can’t control your friend’s performance. But you can certainly control yours. If you do your best you won’t have anything to complain about.
