You also need proper study material which can guide you in the subjects. Lots of study material is available in the market for the JEE, including numerous books (both good and bad) and study material of various institutes (again, both good and bad). You must choose a good study material and stick to it. Switching from one book to another will harm your preparation. For IIT-JEE pre-planning is required, if you are in the class VI or VII, it is advised that you improve your analytical skills. So students require working hard from the initial stage for IIT-JEE.
Following are a few basic points one must keep in mind:
- Plan a daily timetable which should have equal distribution of number of hours to each subject.
- While studying the subject one should invest time in the theory as well as on solving good questions keeping in mind the time barrier. Each question should be done in the stipulated time.
- Always start from BASICS because “without base, there will be no altitude” and “journey of a thousand miles begin with a single step”.
- Always BUILD UP RIGHT & APPROPRIATE BASICS because “once the track of train is being changed, it will go on only that track”. So always select the right track and follow
- that consistently .
- Never prefer solutions of questions before doing SELF-ATTEMPT at least five times till you get the right answer because “without falling you cannot stand at once”.
- Never leave the question in between. There are students who practice a question without attempting it as a whole, and it’s a very big fault for students and it becomes their negative point sometimes. So please ignore this.
- Always try a question with CONCEPTUAL APPROACH, not just read the question and then start doing without getting the point that the question is making.
- Your study schedule should be such that you will even easily get the time for a little enjoyment daily.
- Most important thing is that you should be having a time schedule as well as REGULARITY in studies.
- Also you will have to take appropriate sleep or rest of at least 6-7 hours a day if you are preparing for IIT-JEE otherwise your mindset for next day will not be right in place.
- Do not get into the habit of studying late into night. Instead get up at 6 in the morning and sleep by 11 at night. This will keep your brain activity maximum in the morning and will help you when you actually attempt JEE.
- Never cram the things, always TRY TO UNDERSTAND the problem by studying the theory conceptually.
- And BE CONFIDENT while you are preparing. NEVER LOSE CONFIDENCE.
- Always keep contact with intelligent students of your class or at the coaching centre.
- Always keep the copy of latest syllabus of the particular exam. Always check the syllabus before starting a new topic. Always study everything with GREAT INTEREST otherwise it will be of NO USE.
Usually, students study for about 1 or 2 years to prepare for IIT-JEE. So, planning plays an important role. A good planning strategy will keep you focused and result in better gains. Make a to-do list, set your goals, work out how much time is needed to achieve them, and allocate a realistic time frame. See if you are able to achieve them, if yes, set more ambitious goals next time, if not, analyse what went wrong and how you can improve. I am sure you would be able to crack the JEE in the coming years.
