10 quick tips for a high Score in JEE ADVANCED
You are giving one of the most prestigious and challenging exams in India. So, now is the time to hit it or quit it. While there is much difference in the type of paper of JEE Mains and JEE Advanced but at the end, it all comes to your in depth knowledge in Physics, Chemistry and Maths.
It is important how much you know about a subject but what is more important is how much you know MORE than others. You need to perform better than your peers. That is what differentiates a winner from a loser in JEE Advanced.
Here are 10 important tips to score well in JEE-Advanced 2017:
Leave all the tensions and excitements of JEE Mains result behind. Sprucing up self-belief will help you to bolster your position in this critical period. Remind yourself of the things you do well and ensure that your positivity accompanies you till 5 pm on May 21, 2017.
Start replicating the exact time table you will follow on the day of JEE-Advanced i.e. May 21, 2017. Start waking up at exactly the same time, and work towards a routine to ensure your body and mind gets tuned in to this pattern.
Revision is one of the most effective ways of learning. Revise as much as you can. Focus on all the concepts you have learned in the past two years and mastered in these days. Questions in JEE-Advanced are more application based; so practice a lot of application-based and conceptual questions, possibly from mixed topics.
Several years of experience with students have proved that one of the best value added activity for JEE preparation is to give previous JEE-Advanced papers exactly between 9 am to 12 noon and 2 pm to 5 pm in the days leading up to it. Even solving the last five years' papers will prove to be a great tune up!
At this stage, it is best to consolidate your position by working on your strengths rather than trying to muster up the courage to take on your weak areas. At best you can think of mastering your weak areas in stuff like calculation errors and nothing more!
Do not harbour a wrong assumption that you do not need to sharpen the areas that you have inherent strengths in.
Stay away from those chapters you have not done at all in the past at this stage. Do not fall to the temptation of solving some test series which are notorious for being WAY ABOVE the JEE-Advanced level. It can prove to be catastrophic.
Have similar/same food that you plan to eat during lunch on the D-day.
Go to sleep for at least 7 hours but do not exceed 8 hours of sleep each day.
Stay relaxed, yet focused. Temperament plays a vital role for success in IIT-JEE. Nervousness can decrease performance to such an extent that a student who expects and has the potential to get a top rank in JEE, fails to even qualify.
