Here’s a stepwise guide to the best way to prepare and revise in the final months-
Everyone relies on the FIITJEE test series to understand where they would rank in the actual test — everyone also knows that FIITJEE tests are way tougher. So where is the mirror? Here is the mirror — 162 FREE TESTS to benchmark yourselves at every level which includes chapter level, unit level and full tests as well as previous year papers for JEE Main, JEE Advanced and BITSAT.
Let’s face it — it’s just one test to take to get started.
That is 3 hours of your time for a serious attempt. Way more than the 56 tests taken by Disha Ghandwani (proud ISI Kolkata admit and Abhayanand Super 30’s top student).
BEFORE YOU BEGIN, YOU MUST KNOW WHERE YOU STAND.
Fixing your score once you see your feedback (a.ka. study plan)
Whatever your score in Test 1 — Let’s now examine the step by step process to really nail the last mile!
- Get your behaviour and test-taking skills right.
There is a separate write up on that here.
Students tend to make the following 3 mistakes:medium.com
A. Question Wise Revision
- Revise the questions you got wrong in the following order. When we say revise, we mean really solve these questions again and view the solution.
Start with overtime incorrect questions in your first look — these were questions you got wrong and spent too much time. To get these questions — use the filter combination: ‘OVERTIME’ and ‘INCORRECT’ together along with ‘PHYSICS’, ‘CHEMISTRY’ and ‘MATHEMATICS’ also selected. Only look at the questions on the left of the white dotted line indicating your first look.
- Next look at overtime incorrect questions on the right side of the dotted line. By now you have covered all questions that hurt both speed and accuracy
- Look at incorrect questions overall. Find these by using the filter combination: ‘INCORRECT’ together along with ‘PHYSICS’, ‘CHEMISTRY’ and ‘MATHEMATICS’ also selected.
- Finally, look at all overtime correct questions. To get these use the filter combination: ‘CORRECT’ and ‘OVERTIME’ together along with ‘PHYSICS’, ‘CHEMISTRY’ and ‘MATHEMATICS’ also selected. Look at the method used — why did you go overtime?
- Use ‘Learn’ on embibe to revise the concepts used in these questions. You already know that clicking on each dot in the graph shown above will show you the solution on the question. The other way is to use Questionwise Analysis. Click on the tiny eye in the right to view the detailed video solution for each question and understand the concepts for revision.
b. Chapterwise Revision
Look at the Chapterwise analysis. The order of practice should be as follows:
- Important Chapter and ‘Chapter I got wrong’
- Important Chapter and ‘Chapter I did not attempt’
- Regular Chapter and ‘Chapter I got wrong’
- Regular Chapter and ‘Chapter I did not attempt’
As JEE is the most unpredictable undergraduate exam in the world, one cannot say for sure from which chapter most…medium.com
We have shared below, the right way to go about each of these using Embibe:
Chapters I got right
Just after the first test, don’t spend too much time on these unless you have many overtime attempts. Use chapter practice to fine-tune the time management. Focus on the micro-recommendations that come as you make an attempt. Follow their guidance to improve on time management. First focus on getting accuracy right, use hints if you need to; be aware that you are going overtime. Once that is under control, try and get questions right before the timer on the right turns amber.
Chapters I got wrong
Click on the chapter title to see which concepts were the culprits. Use embibe’s Learn feature to specifically learn those chapters and concepts. Next, take a chapter wise test on the same chapter to further diagnose weaknesses.
Chapters I did not attempt
Why did you not attempt this chapter? I would recommend starting with Learn and the Knowledge Tree for a quick revision if confidence is low. Follow that up with trying out a few questions in Chapter Practice and then finally take a Chapter Test
Check it out below:
Look for yellow stars indicating important concepts. Once this is done, you can then focus on Part Tests and Unit wise practice to check for speed and accuracy at a higher level.
Regardless of your current score, you should be able to improve your score to a significant extent — using analytics-driven practice, learn or setting your test-taking skills right as shown above.
Remember, you deserve to maximise your potential. Now and in life.
Embibe will be your friend, always.
