Here is the excerpts from the interview:

Careers360: Nearly one month is left for JEE Main 2020. What preparation plan and strategy do you suggest to the students to balance their Class XII board preparation along with JEE preparations?

Aakash: While JEE Main 2020 is the key to grab a seat in one of the top engineering colleges across India, securing good marks in board exams is equally important. The board result is a number that stays with you for whole life and whether you make it to a college of your choice or not, you need to have a good score in the board exams to be able to explore other lucrative career options. Moreover, the board exams have 40% weightage in deciding your rank for JEE Main 2020 result that would get you admitted into prestigious NITs.

  • Make a proper and fixed routine for the last one month. You should not keep waking up till late at night. Also, you must make it a practice to wake up early in morning, say at 6.00 am.
  • You must develop a habit of studying for six hours continuously with a break of 30 minutes after 3 hours. This routine should be preferably at 9.00 am to 3.30 pm.
  • To prepare simultaneously for board examination and JEE Main 2020, thoroughly practise from NCERT textbook and solve the exercises rigorously.
  • In the last 10-12 days after board exam, practise as many as multiple choice questions as you can.

Careers360: Do you think studying just the NCERT syllabus would be sufficient for a student to clear JEE Main and follow up on JEE Advanced? Please explain.

Aakash: Studying from NCERT is a must, but not sufficient for the exams. It contains good set of questions, but the theory described is brief. You must refer to one good textbook for problem practice as well as theory. NCERT exemplar is good for JEE Advanced but for JEE main, you must practice objective type questions.

Careers360: What books would you suggest to the JEE Aspirants for preparation in this final phase of preparation?

Aakash: By now, students should be thorough with NCERT books and exemplar along with rigorous practice through solving JEE Main 2020 sample papers of the last five years in order to get a gist of the pattern and complexity level of the entrance exam. Students should solve at least 15-20 sample papers before appearing in the entrance exam.

Other Reference Books:

  • NCERT textbook and exemplar

  • Previous year’s JEE objective type question (single option)

Careers360: What are the important topics for Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics that you think students must focus on to perform well in JEE Main 2020?

Aakash: Every portion of the syllabus is important, but, there are certain topics in every subject that form the basis of the entire subject and can serve your purpose of scoring well. These topics can be applied in all other chapters, and therefore, having a thorough understanding of them is important.

Physics: You should have a fair understanding of Kinematics and Dynamics, and it is essential to be able to build a strong problem-solving ability. Also, the Theory of Fields (Electromagnetism) is very important. But do not ignore Heat & thermodynamics, optics and modern Physics. They are easy and scoring also.

Chemistry: Physical Chemistry can fetch you good scores and hence, all the units under it must be done carefully. Students tend to neglect Inorganic Chemistry, but just a proper understanding of it can prove to be beneficial. General Organic Chemistry must be understood and memorised to score well in Organic Chemistry.

Mathematics: Calculus forms a base for almost every part of Mathematics. Other important and scoring topics are Determinants, Sequences, Permutation and Combination. The student must be able to relate the complex numbers with Coordinate Geometry and Vectors. Three Dimensional Geometry should be practiced to get that additional or compensating score.

Careers360: What changes in strategy should a student need to bring in preparation in the last one month? What importance does solving sample papers hold?

Aakash: One should not spend so much time learning a new concept or tackling very difficult topics at this stage. This is the time to improve your accuracy by attaining perfection in what you have already learned and understood.

Test and appraise yourself by solving JEE Main 2020 mock test/sample papers of JEE Main and gauge your performance. Identify the areas where you commit mistakes and work towards eliminating them.

Careers360: How should a candidate prepare himself/herself for the D-Day or the exam day, as a lot of students get nervous and lose concentration? What would you advise to ensure they feel confident and give their best shot during the exam?

Aakash:

  • Thoroughly read the questions and choices before attempting or finalizing your response.

  • You should not get stuck at one tough problem. If it seems difficult, move on to the next question and mark it to be done later on.

  • If you are not confident on the answer, do not go into unnecessary guesswork.

  • Remember if the test is tough for a well-prepared student, then it is tough for all. It means that the cutoff will also go low, so do not panic. Also, if the test is easy then it is easy for all and cutoff will go high. Just focus on committing any unnecessary silly mistakes.

  • Sleep for 8-10 hours before the exam day.

  • Do not over-study or revise for long hours before the exam.

  • Breathe well and meditate a little before the exam starts. This will relax your mind.

  • Eat well (neither too much nor less) on the day of the exam.

Careers360: Any other message you would like to share with the JEE 2020 aspirants?

Aakash: The JEE Main and JEE Advanced exams test the knowledge as well as temperament. So it is important to have a strategy for tackling them. If you have patience and can handle the pressure, you are bound to perform well. Go ahead and come out with flying colors. Best of Luck!

Our special series aims at helping JEE Main aspirants towards performing well in this competitive engineering entrance exam to secure seat in any of the National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITS, IIITM & IIITDM) and other Central/State Government Funded Technical Institutes apart from other engineering colleges which accept JEE Main scores for admissions.

I got 75percent in jee mains January 2020 under BC category will i apply for jee advance?

AYAN MULLA 29th Feb, 2020

HELLO ASHWINI
since it is very difficult to predict the exact rank but we do have a backup> we have a formula to calculate the expected rank that is (100 – Total percentile) x 869010/100.So according to formula your expected rank for present percentile for January session comes out to be 217252 . Now the expected rank might change depending on the no of candidates appearing the april session. For ex if 12 lakh candidate appear the april session then just replace 869010 by 12 lakhs. But if you score above 85 percentile then you have a very decent chance of qualifying jee mains.
Well since the cutoffs are yet to be decided let us analyse using previous year cutoff
2019
Other Backward Classes (OBC-NCL)  74.3166557
It seems you are very close to the OBC cutoff you have a minor chances of qualifying JEE mains.

Can English, Hindi, and PCM be taken for top 20 percentile criteria fulfilling in JEE Mains?

Manisha 29th Feb, 2020

Hello aspirant

No, you can not take two languages for top 20% criteria .  English is mandatory.

Your main  percentage will be decided by one language subject that is English and other  four subjects in which you get high scores.And remaining subjects become additional whose marks will not be added to your main percentages.

The subject you would score lowest will automatically be excluded.

Can I get admission in CS branch with 45000 rank in JEE Mains?

Rahul ke 29th Feb, 2020
Dear Aspirant, you can't get Computer Science (CS) in NIT with a rank of 45,000.
Low NIT's like NIT Srinagar and Nagaland also don't have that much lower cutoff.
For Example-you should have atleast Rank of around 20 to 25 thousand for getting Computer Science branch in NIT Srinagar.
For NIT Nagaland you should have at least rank of around 35 thousand for getting Computer Science, but for that also you have to wait for the last rounds.
But you can get a CS in some private colleges with this rank,but their Quality of Education and Labs of CS department are not that much good.
So my suggestion to you is to try for JEE MAINS April and make rank as much good rank as possible and after that search for the colleges.
