When preparing for engineering entrance exam, many of you might skip the school part and think of it as unnecessary, but it provides an important foundation for the overall studying experience. School tests and a good JEE rank may seem to have very different preparation methods, but in reality, they follow very similar paths. Given below are some of the measures you can use to balance both your JEE 2019 preparation and school.
1. Make a Timetable

This can be done very easily by making a routine that works best for you. Every individual has different needs and you can customize and utilize your time as per your preference. Regularity in practice and revision will surely bring about fruitful results.
2. Enroll for an Online course
Preparing for JEE 2019 while attending school means very little time for revision. Your typical day would contain attending school than traveling to and from your coaching classes and as a result being too tired for any self-studies. So, it is advisable to join online JEE coaching to minimize the time wasted during travel etc. Live online classes would provide you with the same quality of education as you get in the classroom coaching and that too at the comfort of your home. This is one of the best ways to manage JEE 2019 preparation and school effectively.
3. Practice different types of questions
School and JEE are very different in terms of what it requires of the students. School is primarily subjective and JEE has only objective type questions. The students might have to take a separate and goal oriented approach when tackling either of them. Hence practicing questions specific to your need becomes even more important. MCQ practice should always be done keeping the time in mind. As JEE is a competitive exam, timing plays a major role in providing favorable results. Practice as many mock tests and previous year papers as you can for both boards and JEE 2019.
4. Don’t leave doubts uncleared
One of the biggest mistakes students make is to skip the topics altogether in which they have some doubts. JEE question papers are completely unexpected and you never know which section might help you score more. Make sure you get all your doubts cleared by teachers at coaching center or through the app by downloading Aakash iTutor mobile app.
5. Stay away from distractions
Social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. are the biggest distractions for the students preparing for competitive exams like JEE. You might say that these platforms help you relax and take a break for some time, but when using them, you rarely get to know about how much time you have wasted. Rather, you should relax by talking to people or going for a walk to refresh yourself.
6. Complete your school syllabus by August
