JEE Advanced is considered to be one of the toughest exams to crack in the country. Only the top 2,50,000 rank holders of JEE Main qualifiers can appear for the exam.
The exam is considered tough because of its testing structure. It tests a candidate’s analytical thinking by the way it is prepared.
To start with, you are giving one of the most prestigious and challenging exams in India. Sitting for JEE Advanced is the time to hit it or quit it. While there is a noticeable difference in the type of paper of JEE Mains and JEE Advanced, in the end, it all comes to your in-depth knowledge of the 3 subjects, namely Physics, Chemistry and Maths.
Here are the proven tips from toppers to crack the JEE Advanced exam:
- You must follow your own study method based on your capacity and capability. Don’t just copy someone else’s study plan because it looks fancy and you feel it is just the “IDEAL” time-table. Remember, it’s a process; so, try to be patient, even if it feels like you’re studying the same topics over and over again.
- As we have always highlighted, you must solve lots of mock test papers. This practice will help you understand the structure of the actual exam and will put you under the same kind of pressure you are bound to feel during the actual exam.
- About 80 percent of the paper is math-oriented, most importantly calculus, some ex-alumni suggest permutation and combination along with probability.
- JEE Advanced is a 3-hour long exam so it is important to initiate the time-bound practice. The trick to knowing if you are on track is that while solving mock papers, you should be able to finish at least 90 percent fast enough to have time to solve tough questions.
- Never jump to new topics or new books in the last few remaining days. Simply revise what you have done so far. Revise from NCERT and the publishers you have already done.
- Be consistent and disciplined. Follow a stringent time-table, eat healthy, and don’t compromise on sleep. A tired mind will give you a tough time while trying to think analytically.
