With less than a month to go before JEE Advanced, students desirous of a seat in one of the 23 IITs are immersed in their studies. They need to because JEE Advanced demands an in-depth knowledge of concepts and their application. It is not just about putting in the hours, but equally about using smart ways to maximize the time left at one’s disposal. It is the performance in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics that hold the key to cracking JEE Advanced. Also, the candidate must not waste time in preparing for topics that are not included in JEE Advanced syllabus. To give you an example, Electronic Devices and Electromagnetic Waves which were part of JEE Main syllabus are not included in JEE Advanced syllabus. In this article, we share with you JEE Advanced 2019 preparation tips for Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics so that you stay a step ahead of your peers. Also, to ensure you never go off track, the syllabus of each subject is given for ready reference. So here's wishing you all the best and hoping that you successfully crack JEE Advanced 2019.Latest: JEE Advanced 2019 will be conducted on May 27

JEE Advanced Preparation Tips
Know your admission chances in IITs based on your Caste, Gender etc. & exam result
Keep company of good books to get good result!
How much harder one tries, if the study material and preparation is not up to the mark, there is a good chance things may go wrong. For example, if you buy a book that covers all the topics of a specific subject but uses difficult language you might be forced to move at a snail’s pace. Then there are other books which are easy to understand, but contains many mistakes that are enough to sabotage your JEE Advanced 2019 plans.
Now it is incomprehensible to make wholesome changes to the books you are already following. But if there are areas that need some tweaking here & there is no harm in bolstering them with the right book or two.

Fill in the blanks
JEE Advanced Syllabus - Mathematics
Don’t burn all your fuel before exam day
A common mistake students make is they prepare so hard in the last few days, forgoing sleep and food, that by the time the exam day arrives, they are in the worst physical and mental condition. Consequently, at the exam they make one silly mistake after another and tend to panic at the slightest trouble. To avoid such a fate, it is necessary to take proper rest and eat healthy food so that you are in peak health and mental condition on exam day. When you are happy and relaxed, you can see things clearly and handle even the most difficult of situations with a cool head.
So, how do you relax and stay happy during these stressful days?
You can just about do anything that makes you forget about the exam. Like you can play with your pets, go for a light jog in the morning, watch a comedy show, or engage in lively chatter with your mom or sister.
Don’t think too far ahead
There is no doubt with JEE Advanced the stakes are very high: there is an IIT seat to be won or lost. But you don’t achieve your dreams by day dreaming. Instead you have to be in the present, prepare hard, and also rate your progress on a day-to-day basis.
If you race ahead of time, and dream yourself of getting admission into, say, IITB, you are building unnecessary expectation and putting yourself under pressure. A better more effective strategy is to follow the mantra: work hard and results will follow.
Get familiar with JEE Advanced 2019 exam pattern
The exam pattern of JEE Advanced is different from JEE Mains. So, the candidate needs to take this into account when making preparation strategy. The exam pattern includes details like marking scheme, distribution of questions, and type of question which is useful for making preparation plans. However, here is last year’s exam pattern to give you a fair idea about this year’s pattern as well.
Mode of exam
English or Hindi
Type of Questions
Single correct option
One or more correct option(s)
Matching List Questions
Numerical Value Answer
Number of papers
Each paper will of 3 hours duration
Paper 1: 9 a.m to 12 p.mPaper 2: 2 p.m to 5 p.m.
Some questions have negative marking
Get going with JEE Advanced Sample Papers
Along with studying textbooks and working practice sets, the candidate is also urged to try a couple of JEE Advanced sample papers to get into the exam mode. Doing sample papers will help the candidate work on time management and accuracy. It may be noted that to be succesful in JEE Advanced, it is simply not enough to be fast, but he/she must also be accurate.
Note: Sample papers on their own aren’t enough to build accuracy, but they can build on what the candidate has learnt from the textbook and practice sets.
Don’t let self-doubt creep in
Always believe in your abilities and stay away from naysayers. Believing in oneself also means being positive, which in turn would help you stay relaxed. If you make a few mistakes when doing a problem, don’t get disheartened, but be optimistic that you at least now know where errors are happening. Plug those holes and you may not make that mistake on exam day. As the adage goes: See the glass as half full, not half empty!!
Make it a habit to take notes when studying
The small notes you take when reading a book or when solving a problem are very handy when doing revision. To begin with it is a collection of points that are tailormade for you (after all it is you who have compiled it), Second, the notes will help you simply go through the important points without having to go through huge blocks of text. With exam day getting closer and closer, there may be many sections that you could do without having to spend so much of time and energy.
