JEE Main 2019 Preparation Tips for January Exam
Tip 1: Take stock of your the JEE Main Syllabus
Before you start, it is vital to sift through the syllabus of JEE Main 2019 to check the topics to cover. The syllabus will also have topics to cover form class 12 which can be clubbed for preparation. Segregate the topics to easy, difficult and unknown. Study the easy and unknown in the same period as you can strengthen the easy topics and learn the unknown ones. After that tackle the difficult ones. The reason is no one knows where the questions will come from and it is important to know most of the topics. While knowing all topics in depth may not be possible but knowing most of them will be the next best thing.
Tip 2: Set a time table for JEE Main January 2019
While many say timetables are certainly required, some disagree especially if they are students who feel restricted by rules or cannot stick to a timetable for long. So the idea behind the time table is to set parameters with deadlines to complete a majority of the topics if not all. Try to work at your pace but ensure that you complete what you set out to do. Also make sure that the plan is reasonably achievable.
Tip 3: Understand the JEE Main exam pattern
It is vital to know the pattern of the exam. How else will you know what type of questions will come, how many marks are awarded, time given to complete the exam and such questions. First, check the JEE Main exam pattern. Answering with ease will come with constant practice with question papers of JEE Main.
Some important things to know about the exam are it will be a computer based test in English/ Hindi or Gujarati (only for students from the state)

Tip 4: Mock Test and Question Papers
Success would be within reach if you put all that you learnt into practice. This is precisely what has to be done using the mock tests, for which the registration has been started from September 1 for the practice centers. Candidates, however, can download the mock test which is now available to download in 3 languages starting from September 8. Apart from that, the previous years question papers are a good place to start to know what the actual exam will be like, types of questions and difficulty levels. An ease with the exam environment, time management are some benefits of practising with mock tests or sample papers.
Tip 5: Keep the head high and motivation levels up
A beginning would be to realise that it is just an exam and no measure of what you are and what you can be. Another thing to keep in mind if you are attempting the JEE Main January 2019 exam is that there is another attempt that you can give in April and better the scores. So you can even think of the January exam as just a litmus test and prepare strongly for the April one since the option exists this year. Motivation levels have to be maintained as there will be times when the pressure may be high, you may feel low on account of a bad performance in a practice test. What is more important is to pick yourself up and bounce back into the race.
Tip 6: A healthy you can conquer mountains
Keeping healthy during these next few months is pretty important as only then can you cope up with the rigors of studying for what is one of the largest engineering entrance exams in the country. If you lose energy, feel low, fall sick, you will need time to recover and will not be able to cope up with the dedicated study hours required for an exam of this caliber. So this is a time to eat healthy and good food.
Tip 7: Give yourself breaks and a bit of space now and then
Nobody can work or study continuously at a stretch. It’s not really possible but also detrimental. So take a break now and then. Also give yourself some space to relax with music, meditation, art or whatever helps you ease the pressure.
Tip 8: Stay away from Social media, unnecessary comparisons etc
Social media is addictive. This includes even WhatsApp. You could go on with just chatting on it. Also stay away with negative thoughts, comparisons. Remember the fingers on your hand are not the same so how can two people be same? So while someone may have their good points, so do you. Build on your strengths and make the most. Also allow no one to convince you that you can do it because if you seriously believe it and work for it, you can achieve it.
