Crack 2nd-April JEE Main 2017 Exam in Last Few Days with Expert Tips

April brings forth the season of fervent preparation and sleepless nights for students as they are poised to take the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) for admission to various engineering colleges in the country.

In this current era, it takes more than plain hard work to get the best out of this preparation and keeping abreast with some tips and tricks can only benefit students.

Here are 5 tips to help you crack the JEE:

1. Craft a realistic study plan

Students frequently spend more time in building a mountain out of a molehill. Planning is an art which is fuelled by possibilities. It is imperative to create a plan that can be successfully executed. Building castles out of the air will not take you anywhere. Give more time to topics you find difficult and keep a buffer so that you can complete some pending tasks.

2. Recognise your strength and weakness

Everyone has their definite strengths and acute weaknesses that they require to overcome. It’s pretty certain that if you don’t get clarity on your weaknesses, you end up not being clear about your strengths either. Weaknesses can be transformed into a strength with focus. Playing to your strengths and sailing through the weaknesses is the best exam strategy a person can bank on.

3. Depend on practical know-how

Students have a tradition of considering countless books for every subject even though most of them convey the same thing. Having too many books can lead to confusion during the time of revision and most of your doubts would remain unresolved without a go-to book. Practical knowledge carries you forward to the zenith of your abilities.

4. Examine the questions with care

Examiners try to test students by playing around with question and options. So, it is important to read the question cautiously to comprehend requirements and measure options with great concentration. Watch out for the questions that are designed to have more than one correct answer and you are supposed to choose the option with multiple correct answers.

5. Map your exam strategy

Preparation of the way you attempt various questions is quite vital to crack the JEE. You do not have to approach the question paper in any formulaic way. It is imperative to not waste time over questions which catch you in a fix. Finish all the sections that you are really competent at so that you can dedicate more time for the difficult ones.

With cut-throat competition, it is imperative to get your gears. Enrolling for a coaching class can help a student gain the desired guidance and master tricks to crack competitive exams. Your mind should be prepared to perform well during an exam. This requires consistency over a long period of time and tenacity of mind. Panic will never take you anywhere so give your best and keep faith in yourself.

JEE Main Exam 2017: Six Common Mistakes you should Avoid - A Prep Tips

While sawing a log of wood, being equipped with a razor sharp blade is not an absolute guarantee for success. Here, it is essential to implement the right method and technique. Making mistakes, in this context, will not only result in a delayed job but also poor finishing. More importantly, it can consequently also blunt the blade, even break it. Sawing has a strange resemblance to cracking a competitive exam. In order to put your best self forward, you need to implement the right technique. Opting wrong methods during preparation will, on one hand, dampen your progress. On the other, it will accumulate stress and affect your overall performance considerably. Below are the most common mistakes that students must avoid during JEE Main preparations:

Ignoring the basics:

Students often make their preparations synonymous to studying with an exhaustive combination of reference books and study material. In reality, more than 70% of the questions are either from the NCERT or are an extended version of its learnings. Students should primarily stick to NCERT course books and head towards reference books only upon its completion. Also, Class XI syllabus constitutes a substantial portion of the JEE exam. Ensure that you revise its topics simultaneously along with your Class XII syllabus. If an examination is fast-approaching, identify the recurring Class XI questions from previous year’s question papers and specifically revise those topics.

Avoiding conceptual understanding:

It has been observed that students prefer method-based approach rather than applying a conceptual understanding over the questions. Initially, this approach might serve the purpose, but it can become quite detrimental for students because many a times, despite being framed on similar lines, a slightly off-patterned question becomes difficult to understand. Thus, it is always imperative to apply concepts in each and every topic that you practice.

Falling into traps:

When students practice similar questions too often, they develop a tendency to identify and solve them as per their self-interpretation. MCQ questions are often framed in a deceptive manner. Ensure that you read and understand the questions properly before attempting them. As they are also supplemented with incorrect answers, failing to do so will result in negative marking for a question that you could have easily solved.

Also, avoid silly mistakes. After performing well in mock drills and practice papers, students, to a certain degree, become overconfident. This lead to careless mistakes and wasting of a substantial amount of time in rechecking calculations. Do not lose your focus while solving a question in the first place. This will help you ensure that the solution has been corrected at each and every step. Additionally, during an examination, students tend to avoid long questions in fear of losing crucial time. Contrary to this popular belief, the long text questions are often easier to solve. So, do not ignore or give them a miss.

Giving up hobbies:

In an attempt to give their complete attention towards the exam, students end up quitting their hobbies and indulging in daily activities. Doing so, can reduce the enthusiasm, stress up the brain, and decrease efficiency, thereby resulting in a lacklustre performance. Prevent making your preparations cumbersome. You’ll be able to grasp and retain more information by maintaining a stress-free mind. Moreover, engaging yourself in physical activities will enable you to keep up a healthy lifestyle, which is very crucial during preparations. Students must try and enrol themselves in performance-enhancing activities such as yoga, meditation, or anything else that suits them better.

Doubting oneself:

This possibly is the biggest blunder that students make during the preparation. Giving room to doubts directly increases hesitation and leads to lack of confidence. Trust yourself and your abilities. Develop a positive mind-set. To do so, implement a goal-oriented strategy. For students that are not able to deal with this problem must set long-term goals initially. However, this activity should not be done during the last 15 days before the examination.

The Final Countdown:

Students putting a lot of efforts during their early preparations are often seen slacking as the examination approaches. This pattern is more dominant in self-studying students that have no mentor. As a result, their performances drop severely. This also increases conceptual doubts later and makes time management exceedingly difficult during the final week. Completing syllabus before time is not an assurance of success. Students must constantly practice in order to increase retention and enhance their skill set in terms of speed and calculation.
