How to prepare

Preparation Strategy

Make a proper Time Table

It is very important that you make a timetable and stick to it and you will have an exact idea of what you are required to study and the time required for it.

Concept clarity rather than rote learning

It is essential that you have a clear idea of the formulas and concepts rather than rote learning of things for the papers. While you might require it for memorizing formulas it is important that for other stuff you make sure you clear your basics and concepts before moving on.

Prepare Notes

It is very important make small notes or a comprehensive list of formulas on each covered topic and chapter which will come in handy at the time of revision. This will require you to be regular with your work but will surely make things easy at the time of revision.

Aspirants should focus on core topics and theory of Physics, Chemistry and Maths. Try and finish all the topics in the next two-three months. Thereafter, do not touch any new topics or comfortable areas. The chief strategy should be to attempt familiar questions and leave non-familiar/non-comfortable questions. Candidates should be able to decide this within 10 seconds.

Speed will be also very critical in the exam. Apart question learning to select a question, candidates should also to reject a question in less than 10 seconds.

Expect some calculation-heavy problems. These questions are meant to be left alone. Give it a try only if are not very close.

So focus on JEEMAINS syllabus. Apart from Physics, Chemistry and Maths there are some aptitude questions form General Knowledge and Verbal ability.

General Knowledge is comparatively easier than other areas in the exam. We can expect a similar pattern in the exam 2016. Questions in GK can come from any subject areas but level difficulty will be moderate.

Verbal ability section usually consists of grammar, reading comprehension. There’s no different strategy for VA section. Candidates need to focus on an overall strategy for this exam while preparing for verbal sections, because all sections are equally important.

Duration : 90 Minutes
