IIT-JEE Entrance Exam is one of the most coveted exams of our country. Quite obviously, the preparation it accounts for is exhaustive. With around 12 lakh students appearing for the IIT-JEE Entrance Exam every year, the competition gets very tough. In fact, only around 2 lakh students qualify in the IIT-JEE Advanced Exam every year, out of which nearly 10,000 students find themselves in the IITs.
Keys to crack JEE Main:
Two years of dedicated and systematic preparation is the most important key to get success in entrance exam. But even after well preparations some students get nervous during exam and can’t perform well there. There are some tips that might be useful for you to score well in the entrance exam.
General analysis of paper:
JEE (Main) Exam 2016 had two parts (Paper 1 and Paper 2). Paper 1 was for students applying for engineering seats in engineering colleges, while paper 2 was for students applying for B. Arch degrees.
The 3 sections on Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics had 30 questions each, with four marks for right answer and for each in-correct response, one-fourth of the total marks allotted to the question would be deducted from the total score.
Paper was balanced and set from CBSE syllabus of Class XI and XII. The questions were distributed unevenly, as maximum having conceptual understanding, while few required analytical skills.
Plan a strategy to cover all the topics in different subjects:
Since all the topics have equal weightage, it is necessary to not ignore any topic. All the topics and sums carry equal importance. Physics, apart from Mathematics, also involves a good number of sums.
List of topics involved in JEE Main:
- Mole concept, Thermodynamics, Equilibrium and Electrochemistry
- Practice sufficient number of numerical as they form a major portion of questions.
- Stereochemistry, GOC (General Organic Chemistry), Reaction mechanism and Functional Group Analysis.
- Mainly conceptual questions, concerned with structures, processes and applications
- Chemical Bonding, Coordination Chemistry & Qualitative Inorganic Analysis.
- Electricity and Magnetism
- Modern Physics
- Heat and Thermodynamics and Waves and Sound
- Measurement and errors
- Vectors & 3D
- Complex Numbers
- Definite Integral
- Conics and Trigonometry
- Differential Calculus
- Permutations and Combinations
- Matrices & Determinants
Be quick and accurate:
During exam time two most important factors are speed and accuracy. Remember that high speed with less accuracy is the most dangerous thing. Both these factors are equally important.
The students need to approach every set of problems differently and with separate methodologies. Attempting the paper in haste can lead to poor results, as much as, spending too much time on a question can.
Select your questions wisely:
Don’t panic while solving your paper, first filter out all easy and average problems and answer them.
Don’t refer too many books for theory:
Students have habit to refer many books to learn same thing, which causes waste of valuable preparation time. Refer to some standard books and once concepts are clear in your mind, start to practice problems based on that concept.
Read the questions carefully:
Certain questions are plainly tricky. So read the question carefully to understand it right and select the right option with presence of mind.
Management of time is a crucial factor in deciding the result of any exam that you attempt. Not only are you required to have an effective time-table to prepare for the exam, but, efficient time management in the exam is also a major deciding factor.
Effective Exam Strategy:
Embibe, an online learning platform, provides students with a comprehensive list of all that they need to crack JEE Main Exam. One can learn the concepts thoroughly and take tests to attain speed and accuracy. In case, one needs more practice, they can practice the subjects (Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics), and analyze their results to judge the strong and weak areas.
A good number of toppers of JEE Main Exams have observed an overall 23% increase in score and have expressed their satisfaction over the test materials levels.
