Buckle up!                                                    

Sounds nerve-wrecking, doesn’t it? That is exactly what JEE preparation demands. These days preparation for JEE starts right from sixth grade till twelfth, but for a normal student of a decent study pattern would require two full years of intense preparation and sacrifice. This preparation requires immense amount of dedication and single-minded aim to crack the JEE. First, the subjects that are tested in JEE are mathematics, physics, and chemistry. All the three are equally tough.

Get clear                                                       

So, one should have his or her mind clear before starting the preparation and should make sure that whatever is learnt In the day is revised as concepts and not as questions. Concepts are few but the questions are pretty complex, and this is what sets the JEE apart from other entrances.

Start off with your good areas                        

A good start is very necessary and that is why starting off with the student’s favorite subject is in some way a motivation to do well. A few concepts a day, with immense practice of problems and questions starting from easy to hard is the best way to go about it. For example, if the student wants to start with math, then start off with the most important part (like integration or differentiation), and learn two to three concepts and give in immense practice. Immense practice usually involves solving sums at a very fast pace and keeping up with time as well. Solving minute differences in decimal places requires practice and speed. That is what math is all about.

Vary your schedule                                                        

It is not advisable to keep doing the same subject every day. Rather, split the days of the week into subject days, and this will keep the mind fresh and occupied at the same time. But an amalgamation of many all subjects in a single day leads only to confusion. So, the student must have a proper study plan also.

Get into the details                                                    

Moving on, each subject should be studied and prepared for in-depth, because there are no repeated questions. There are repeated formats, but no question has ever been repeated in the history of IIT. This shows that no topic can be left unprepared for, excepting a few rare cases where the probability of asking a question from that chapter is less than two percent. Since, the portion is too vast and too much in depth, the student need not prepare all the topics completely. Few topics can be left alone totally, and a few can just be revised. However, majority of the topics should be learnt. Leaving out topics can be 3-4% of the whole syllabus, which might actually consist of around 5-6 topics totally.

Face the crowd                                                       

JEE has more often than not caused heartbreak for students mainly due to the fact that only around 5% of the people taking the test get admitted into IIT. Therefore, the competitive spirit in the preparation of the student should be very high.

Motivation is the key                                                        

There is nothing more than a motivated brain to make the brain work harder. Parents play a huge role in shaping the preparation as well, because the parents should make sure that the student is on the right track and make amendments to his or her schedule so that the student does not digress from the main aim.

Don’t tax yourself                                                      

A small break of around five to ten minutes is always welcome after the completion of a topic. Not an hour, not two, but however long the whole topic takes. Everyone knows that is taxing, but that is the level of dedication required to crack JEE. Dedication comes from enjoying the subject, and therefore evincing interest is the first step to success.
