JEE Exam Preparation tips 

For acing the exams in one go, you can follow all these tips:

  • Build your base: The first step for JEE Exam preparation is to form a strong base and that can be done by studying NCERTs. Do not jump on to reference books with the little conceptual and numerical knowledge you have. Instead, begin with the NCERTs.
  • Stop mugging & begin questioning: You can never learn by just mugging the concepts or questions. But you always try to question the concepts. It will help you to deal with tricky questions. There might come simple and twisted questions from a single theory, for that, questioning the concept is important.
  • Multiple solution techniques: You can solve one question by using multiple methods. Even when you are practicing questions, don’t use 1 or 2 ways to solve a lot of questions. Instead, solve that one question by using multiple techniques.
  • Revision: Okay, so there is a line between revising too much or not revising at all. The candidates should be in between those parameters. As soon as you complete one chapter, revise it thoroughly within 2-3 hours, not more than that. You can revise properly by practising the questions from reference books.
  • Go for Mock tests: Solving Mock tests can be beneficial if done in the right way. The right way here is to review your solutions. And for this, you must give 6-7 hours. By analyzing your solutions, you will get to know your weak & strong points. You can work on them and get better results.
