General Preparation Strategies for JEE Main and JEE Advanced
While both examinations are quite different from each other, some of the preparation strategies for JEE Main and JEE Advanced are similar in nature as per Prof. Uma Sankar Manchella. Candidates can check the various preparation strategies given below to boost their study and score well in the entrance examination:
Time Management - First of all, the students are required to learn how to manage their time. According to Prof. Uma Sankar Manchella, since the examination is time limited, the students should know how to use their time wisely so that the exam can be finished at a comfortable pace. Students should practice how to manage the order of answering the questions in the examination to do well in the real examination.
Match your caliber - While creating a study schedule, the students should prepare it as per their caliber. For example, Prof. Uma Sankar Manchella emphasizes that students who have chances of scoring high and have prepared well should focus more on attempting mock tests and previous questions during the last few months before the examination. Meanwhile the other students should brush up their concepts first and then focus on mock tests.
Refer to NCERT - ‘Students should confirm the boundaries of NCERT’ - Prof. Uma Sankar Manchella. For Physics and Chemistry, most of the questions in the entrance examination will be from NCERT and CBSE books. Therefore students should focus on NCERT and try to understand the nature and depth of the concepts.
Practice Mathematics Questions - However, for Mathematics, NCERT will not be sufficient. The students are required to practice problems from other books too to score well in the examination.
Don’t Neglect Practical Manuals - Prof. Uma Sankar Manchella emphasizes that he feels students neglect practical manuals of Physics and Chemistry a lot which leads to them losing marks in the examination. Questions from these manuals are often present in the examination paper and the students are advised not to skip them.
Solve Previous Question Papers - Students should solve at least previous 15 year questions to prepare for the examination. This will allow the students to understand the pattern in how the paper is to be attempted. All of the questions should be properly read and solved till the end. ‘Don’t jump to another question before finishing the previous one. This will make the students lose two questions’ - Prof. Uma Sankar Manchella.
Self Motivation - At the end of the day, the students motivation and zeal is the biggest factor which will influence the direction of their preparation.
Extra Preparation Strategies for JEE Main
Along with focusing on previous JEE Main papers, the students should also refer to previous JEE Advanced question papers especially objective and numerical value type questions. There are high chances of these questions being repeated for JEE Main.
For Mathematics, the students should focus on core areas such as Quadratics, Binomial, Sets & Relations, Mathematical Reasoning and Statistics. These topics are very elementary and will fetch good marks. Calculus can also be studied by the students to score well in JEE Main.
In terms of Chemistry, Prof. Uma Sankar Manchella believes that most of the questions will be directly from NCERT. Topics such as Biomolecules and Biochemistry need to be studied well by the students.
Focus of the students should be on getting enough scores to qualify for NITs admission or being qualified for JEE Advanced.
Extra Preparation Strategies for JEE Advanced
According to Prof. Uma Sankar Manchella, since IIT Delhi will be preparing the JEE Advanced 2020 question papers, the students should refer to the papers of 2012 and 2013 since the same authorities had prepared those also. This will allow the students to know the mindset of how the papers can be prepared by the authorities.
Students should have more exposure to numerical value type questions more than one answer type questions.
In Mathematics, the students should put more focus on Algebra and Calculus. As per the previous year papers, there is more weightage on these topics.
Physics topics such as Mechanics and Electricity have good weightage.
For Chemistry, equal weightage is given for all sections - Organic (33%), Inorganic (33%) and Physical Chemistry (33%). However, the authorities will make the Physical Chemistry questions difficult to keep the standards of the examination high.
Students should also prepare questions from each topic which have not been asked in the previous papers.
During the preparation period, the students should give priority to the important areas, change their orientation and focus on those particular models.
For the last minute preparation of both JEE Main and JEE Advanced, Prof. Uma Sankar Manchella also advises students to concentrate on formulas, prepare the core flashcards from each subject and place it in front of the desk and go through it. Students are advised not to refer to anything new, drink water and not to solve any unnecessary problems from any new areas.
