JEE Advanced 2019 Preparation Strategy

JEE Advanced 2019 is regarded as the toughest exam, and the competition for the same has been on the rise. After clearing the first hurdle i.e., JEE Main, JEE Advanced is the last stage to get admission in IITs (Indian Institutes of Technology). Most students who clear JEE Main and become eligible for JEE Advanced must note that a planned preparation strategy is essential to crack the test. JEE Advanced 2019 will be conducted in a Computer-Based Mode on May 19, 2019. On the other hand, JEE Main 2019 will be conducted in January and April 2019.

Candidates aiming to crack JEE Advanced 2019 must start preparing for the exam now. The JEE Advanced 2019 syllabus is vast, and it may take a lot of time to cover all the topics. Once the preparation is over, it has to be followed by revision. At the same time, students must focus on board exams. Therefore, it is important to utilise the time properly, and wastage of time will further increase the pressure on the aspirants. In order to ease the pressure, utilise the available time, and prepare for the exam regularly. Aim for JEE Advanced instead of JEE Main if you are seriously aspiring to join IIT.

In order to help JEE Advanced 2019 aspirants, we've come up with a sensible and student-friendly preparation strategy, which will ease the pressure of aspirants. We hope that this preparation strategy will clarify all your doubts pertaining to the section-wise preparation strategy, time management etc.

Section-wise Preparation Strategy for JEE Advanced 2019

Before starting exam preparation for JEE Advanced 2019, you must divide the subjects into two –

  • Subjects you are good at
  • Subjects you need to improve

As per the above division, you can start with the first category, i.e., subjects you are good at, as it will help you to revise the syllabus on time. After revising the known subjects, proceed with difficult subjects, and try to devote more time for the same. Here is the section wise preparation strategy for JEE Advanced 2019.


Mathematics is obviously a tough nut to crack for many, but a perfect preparation will change your feeling on the subject. The subject is easy if you are good at formulae and solving the problems.

  • In order to improve your mathematical problem-solving skills, you must practice continuously. The more you practice, the better your skills improve.

  • Before solving a problem, understand the concept twice or thrice.

  • Note down the formulae associated with the particular problem and start practising at least three to four problems in the same model.

  • Do not waste much time by focusing on similar kind of mathematical problems/ equations.

  • Proceed with further models, and by the end of the day, make sure that you are able to figure out perfect solutions for the mathematical problems you had practised.

  • If you continue the process regularly, you can create shortcut methods to solve problems. This particular process saves your time, as JEE Advanced 2019 questions are MCQ-based.

  • You need to attain perfection in problem-solving skills through shortcut methods, and your accuracy must match the time allocated for the mathematics section in JEE Advanced 2019.

  • Finally, practice mock tests so that you can identify areas to improve and attain perfection.

In all, a long-term preparation will have higher chances of securing a better score in JEE Advanced 2019. If you are already good at Mathematics, a short-term preparation will boost up your abilities.


Physics is also a vast subject, and it needs equal attention at par with Mathematics. However, one can excel in Physics if he/she is good at basics.

  • Refer NCERT physics textbooks to understand the basics.

  • Basics will help you in solving complex problems/ equations in Physics.

  • Note down the important basics, equations, or formulae in a book, as it will act as a reference.

  • Therefore, give more emphasis to basics. Make sure that you should practice at least 3-4 problems in a topic and proceed further.

  • You can refer multiple textbooks to solve different problems associated with varied topics.

  • Finally, practice mock tests to attain perfection in the subject, and it will also help you in finding out areas to improve.

In all, the more you absorb the subject, the better you perform in JEE Advanced 2019.


Chemistry is a combination of chemical equations and reactions, concepts and theory.

  • You must refer the best JEE Advanced 2019 preparation books and NCERT books that explain the subject in an easier way.

  • The best thing you can do is, understand the basic concepts, and apply the same to solve the problems and equations.

  • Note down the important points from each topic in a book so that your preparation becomes easier.

  • You must practice the chemical equations and problems on a regular basis to improve your dominance on the concepts.

  • Finally, practice mock tests to attain perfection in the subject, and it will also help you in finding out areas to improve.

General Tips & Tricks for JEE Advanced Preparation

The competition for JEE Advanced 2019 is expected to be stiff, and students can expect a tough question paper. Therefore, you must not give any scope for blunders with regard to exam preparation. You must have clarity on what you are preparing for the day, how much is being spent on a particular subject and how many concepts did you learn or revise on the day. Here are some of the general trips and tricks for JEE Advanced exam preparation.

Importance of Quality Preparation: While preparing for JEE Advanced, remember that the quality time spent on exam preparation is important than quantity. At the end of the day, you must make sure that you have learnt or revised the concepts planned for the day.

Give Emphasis to Class XI Syllabus: 40 – 45% of questions in JEE Advanced will be from Class XI syllabus, and it is important to revise Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry subjects of Class XI.

Be Careful with Conceptual-Based Questions: Some of the JEE Advanced questions will be conceptually based. In order to pass this hurdle, a better revision is the only way. Therefore, revise the concepts until you attain 99% accuracy or perfection.

Logical Thinking: For application-based questions in JEE Advanced, students must use their analytical and reasoning ability to solve the question. Every year, these questions are turning out to be difficult for students, and the same are influencing the performance of students. Therefore, utmost attention must be given to these questions.

Pointers to Ace JEE Advanced 2019

JEE Advanced is an important examination that requires dedication, commitment and months of preparation. There are some other important pointers that students can consider in order to prepare well for the exam.

Determination and Commitment to Fulfill the Goal: When you set your vision on the national-level engineering entrance examination for admission to IITs, the only thing that matters is your determination and commitment to meet the goal. 

Explore the JEE Advanced Syllabus: It is only when you get a grip on the syllabus, you can start your planning further to prepare for the exam. You should have a clear picture of important topics and chapters that you have to study. Without knowing the syllabus, you can not move forward with clarity.

Selection of the Best Study Material: While NCERT books are helpful during preparation for JEE Advanced, there are some really helpful books authored by experts in the field. Preparing from the best books for JEE Advanced ensures that there is little scope for errors in your preparation.

Old Papers and Mock Tests Always Help: Using the previous years' papers is a good way to get an idea of the exam. Also, mock tests help in evaluating one's understanding of the subjects. 

Time Management: Managing your time well on the examination day is the key to scoring well. Therefore, time management is an important formula to ace the exam.

Eat Well and Take a Good Night's Sleep: While preparing for the exam, you should eat right and sleep well. One should sleep for at least 8 hours before the examination to maintain his/her focus. Lack of sleep causes discomfort and candidates may feel irritated inside the examination room.
