JEE Main 2019 Preparation Tips by Expert - Mr. Brajesh Maheshwari
Careers360: What would you advice the students who want to start preparing for JEE Main 2019 now?
Brajesh Maheshwari: Students who want to start preparing for JEE Main 2019 must follow these steps:
Join a good coaching institute
Attend every lecture
Complete your Daily assignments
Discuss your doubts with the concerned teacher the very next day
Appear in every test. Tests help you realize your weaknesses. Work on your weak areas and convert them into your strengths.
Careers360: What books should they follow now? Kindly name some books.
Brajesh Maheshwari: JEE Main is conducted by the CBSE, so just follow NCERT of each subject. A coaching student does not need other reference books.
Careers360: What is the time table that students should follow?
Brajesh Maheshwari: Excluding coaching/ school hours, a student must study for 6 hours daily. 6 hours can be divided into four sections of 90 minutes each.
Session 1: Revise notes of Physics/ Maths/ Chemistry
Session 2: Problem solving (Physics)
Session 3: Problem solving (Chemistry)
Session 4: Problem solving (Maths)
Careers360: What is the best method to study according to you?
Brajesh Maheshwari: There cannot be any “one size fits all” approach when it comes to studying. The best method to study is to make a study schedule on the basis of one’s SWOT analysis, i.e. analysis of one’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to determine how much time to be allotted to each subject topic wise. It is extremely important to stick to this schedule and if required, make necessary changes to that schedule.
Careers360: Which of the topics you will suggest as important? Please mention it for Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics separately.
Brajesh Maheshwari: All topics carry equal importance. It is not possible to predict the number of questions that will be asked from a particular topic. Moreover, there is no set pattern for the exam hence there is no surety that the number of questions asked from a particular topic will remain the same next year as well.
Careers360: If students rely on coaching material, where do you extract that from? Which books are used for the purpose?
Brajesh Maheshwari: Coaching material is prepared by the faculties keeping NCERT and previous year questions as the base.
Careers360: How should students schedule their preparation?
Brajesh Maheshwari: Like I said earlier, there is no “one size fits all” approach when it comes to studying. One must first take into account one’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. And based on this analysis, determine how time need to prepare each subject topic wise. Sticking to the schedule is very important.
Careers360: Reports suggest that NTA will be the conducting body for JEE Main 2019 and also that exam will be conducted in online mode twice. How do you think preparation should differ for online exam being conducted twice? What strategy students should follow for preparation?
Brajesh Maheshwari: Students should have a greater exposure to online tests for a better eye hand coordination to gain speed and accuracy.
Let NTA conduct exam twice. Those students who have been preparing for the last one year should appear for the first test whereas those who have just started preparing should appear for the second test.
