Archit: I have really enjoyed studying Science ever since I was a young boy. My interest took me to select PCM in class 12 which made me further interested in Engineering and Science.

Careers360 Team: When did you start your JEE Advanced preparation? Tell us something about your preparation strategy and daily routine for JEE Advanced?

Archit: I started preparing for JEE Mains and Advanced altogether since the syllabus for both the exams is similar. I use to study each topics and prepare exactly as per the exam pattern. After my board exam I focussed my preparation for JEE Mains and after the result for Mains was declared, I started preparing for the Advanced.

Careers360 Team: How was the preparation for JEE Advanced different from JEE Main?

Archit: The preparation was quite similar but since the difficulty level of Advanced is high then the Advanced, I use to practise questions to the level and standard of Advanced. The test series and mock papers helped me a lot to prepare for the exam.

Careers360 Team: Since there was just a month after the JEE Main, elaborate on your preparation strategy?

Archit: After the result for JEE Mains was declared, I focussed solely on practising questions. I have already covered all the topics during my JEE Mains preparation

Careers360 Team: Did you take coaching for JEE and if yes from where? What are the benefits of coaching according to you?’

Archit: I did my preparation from FIITJEE coaching institute in Delhi. Coaching helped me in a lot of ways from guiding me, motivating me, providing the study material, personal mentoring and most importantly solving my queries and doubts. I would say preparing without coaching could have been really difficult.

Careers360 Team: Mock tests and sample papers – how extensively did you practise with the help of these? Do you think practising from the previous year papers help and how?

Archit: I practised the mock tests and practise papers provided by the coaching institute. I also appeared in the All India test series of FIITJEE which made me understand my stand and preparation level. Solving mock papers and practising the previous year papers are really beneficial.

Careers360 Team: Are there any special books that you feel have helped with your JEE Advanced preparation?

Archit: I studied Physics from Irodov and HC Verma and also referred some foreign authors for Chemistry.

Careers360 Team: What is the main difference between both the two papers in JEE Advanced?

Archit: The main difference I would say is in the difficulty level wherein I found the afternoon session a bit more difficult then the forenoon session. The questions in Physics were particularly more indepthly formulated and required high level of thinking and analysis.

Careers360 Team: Who is your ideal or biggest inspiration in life and why?

Archit: My parents are my biggest inspiration. They stood by my side throughout my preparation and always use to motivate me whenever I felt low.

Careers360 Team: You know you are an inspiration to thousands of students across the country. Do you have any message for future aspirants on tackling the JEE Advanced exam?

Archit: I would say regularity is most important. One should stay focussed in preparation and keep studying as per the syllabus and pattern of the exam to succeed.

It is quite difficult to tell you the latest cutoff percentile to be qualified JEE mains for JEE advanced but yes by analysing the previous year records I can tell you that how much percentile probably you basically need to have, So for general category you need to have at least 85 percentile.
And remember the above percentile is on the basis of previous year record it may fluctuate with some factors.
Best of luck.

This year anyone can tell 80 percentile student of jee mains in obc can qualify for jee advance xams??

Manisha Gupta Expert 28th Jan, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

It's difficult to tell you the exact about the qualifying cutoff & the exact rank. But as per the previous year cutoff you should have decent chance to qualify the exam as OBC category.

You may calculate your expected general rank by this formula

100 - your total percentile score is the percentage  of people ahead of you. 874469 are the number of candidates appeared for Jan exam. So rank formula is (100 - your total score) X 869010 /100. If the number of candidates for April exam increased to 1200000 then your final rank shall be (100 - your total score) X 1200000/100

Using the formula

(100 - your total score) X 869010 /100

Your probable general rank will be 1,73,802.

The chances are less to get a seat in NITs, IIITs & GFTIs however you can go for the state level counselling.  You can check your state level counselling admission possibilities with JEE Main College Predictor tool given below.

Good Luck!
