Start the Preparation for IIT – JEE
Below are the important factors that you should consider in order to start JEE Main Exam preparation
1. Prefer NCERT Books
To clear the JEE Main 2021 NCERT books is one of the best approaches to follow. Don’t under-estimate/ignore this book by thinking “NCERT is very easy, they are for board exams”. This is the common misconception which most of the students have.
The first requirement to start the preparation is to be thorough with the NCERT concepts. This plays a major role in the JEE-Main exam especially. NCERT books provide the basics you need to know before going further to high-level competitive books.
It is a conceptual book and very much important for your JEE-Main exam. Some questions (say 30-40%) from NCERT are even asked directly in JEE-MAIN paper. Some questions are indirectly asked and in a twisted form, but the concept behind it remains the same (if you are thorough with your NCERT syllabus).
2. Subject Preparation
Out of Physics, Chemistry, Maths, choose the subject in which you can score marks. Select the scoring subject accordingly. But for most of the students, Chemistry is the scoring subject. If you are thorough with NCERT (especially for chemistry, you can easily afford to score 100+ marks out of 120).
For physics, concept and theory are important in NCERT, but for the numerical part, you need to prefer reference books. For maths, practice as much as you can. Don’t leave a single example of your NCERT (they are easy but have a different approach and also provide the strongest root for the toughest problem).
3. Study Reference Books
Once you are done with your NCERT book, you can move further to reference books. Reference books provide both theoretical as well as multiple choice questions. Reference books are important in case you don’t understand any concept of NCERT or you find it lengthy or difficult to understand.
Prefer reference books in that case. Best reference books you can prefer R D SHARMA (for Maths), PRADEEP/NCERT (for Chemistry), S L ARORA/PRADEEP/DINESH and H C Verma (for Physics).
4. Study Materials
Nowadays with increasing advancement in DISTANCE LEARNING EDUCATION, many renowned institutions or coaching centres have started providing their study materials online/offline.
You can collect these study materials according to your syllabus for JEE Main and prefer it. This will provide you with a platform to understand and practice multiple-choice questions. JEE-Main includes 90 questions (30 questions per subject-physics, chemistry, Maths) in MCQ format (Objective type). So to practice such a pattern of the question, you need to prefer study material.
But remember, you should not forget the concepts of NCERT. Don’t mess your concepts with the lengthy formulae of study material. Prefer materials only to practice questions, not to learn the toughest formula or concept. Also solve previous year question papers of JEE Main.
5. Key Points
Always maintain a separate notebook to note down important key points or formulas or concepts. This will help you to revise quickly before your exam. Also, revise/memorize these notes on a daily basis. You can also note down your weak points or your mistakes. This would prevent you from attaining negative marks in your JEE-Main.
Practice regularly, discover your mistakes and work to improve/overcome it. This will surely save you from negative marking. So maintaining your own proper notes can help you reduce your time in revising, it will help you overcome panic, and it will give you a clear picture of the topics you are weak in.
6. Previous Year Exam Papers
In order to improve your performance, or check your preparation, daily practice previous years paper to know your status. This will help you to improve test-speed or time management. You will get a new question and patterns to practice, it will build your knowledge/skill. This will develop confidence in yourself and help you remove your panic/depression. You can also analyze yourself about your weak/strong subjects and work accordingly.
So, previous years papers play an important role, don’t neglect it. Practice on a daily basis, analyze your preparation and overcome it. Expand your knowledge every day and become confident enough with your practice. Maintain a proper diet and sleep time, keep your mind healthy and fresh and enrich yourself with confidence to overcome this challenging exam (JEE Main).
