The following tips and guidelines have been carefully crafted to help you chalk out the way to crack JEE Main without coaching.

Get familiar with the exam pattern and syllabus

Knowing the JEE Main syllabus with weightage will let you segregate the important topics on which you can focus more. The exam pattern will help you get familiar with the types of questions asked so that you can practice and prepare accordingly.

Solving Papers

Just learning the information and knowledge about the relevant topics is not enough. Try solving previous year question papers and mock test papers to keep a check on your preparation level. Make it a daily practice to solve papers. Doing this will boost the level of your preparation and will let you put a check on your mistakes. It will also help you to get an idea that where you lag behind. Solving question papers will also boost up your level of confidence.

Clear Doubts

Since you are not joining any coaching there is a possibility of your doubts being left unsolved. Do not let that happen. Clear your doubts and queries time to time by consulting your school teachers, your friends or any other person you think might be of any help. Make sure that all the concepts, formulas and problems are solved and cleared.

Time Management

Time Management is the key to success. Divide your time to all the subjects and their respective topics according to the exam syllabus and pattern. Manage your time in such a way that all the topics are covered. Make sure that you do not forget to devote some time to relax your mind as well.

Online Study

Internet is a hub for study material, question papers, tutorials, etc. Utilize this gift of the internet by watching tutorial videos and lectures by the talented professors and experts, downloading the study material to enhance your knowledge, downloading previous year question papers, etc. You can also give online tests to check where your preparation stands. There are online forums for discussions where like-minded people ask their queries and side by side solve the problems of others. Experts and IITians are also available to help on online platforms.

Daily Revision

Revise, revise and revise more. Though a human brain can grab a huge amount of information every day yet it requires a time to time reminder to remember the important stuff. Daily revision of whatever you have studied will help you remember it for a longer period of time. The revision will also help to get the important formulas or theories on your trips which will ultimately increase your efficiency and accuracy.

Weakness and Strengths

Nobody knows your strengths and weaknesses better than you yourself. Analyse your strengths and weaknesses to ensure a better strategic plan for JEE Main preparation. Work more on your weaknesses so that by the end of the preparation they become your strengths before the exam. Prior knowledge or weaknesses and strengths will help you to score high. All the eligible candidates will be able to check the JEE Main Result 2020 on January 31.

Do not let yourself get Demotivated

Even a positive soul needs the motivation to push himself forward. Even after devoting yourself completely to the preparation and studying for cracking JEE Main without coaching, there will be times when you will feel lack of motivation and inspiration. Do not lose hope during such moments of despair. Indulge yourself in activities which will relax your mind as too much pressure will burst your mind out of frustration. Remind your mind about the ultimate goal and motivate yourself to tighten up the seatbelt to ride the rollercoaster which will ultimately lead to the desired destination.
