A. No. There were no glitches and everything went off well that day.
Q6: Was there a difference in the preparation strategy in the last months of JEE Main considering that the board exams are also coming up? How did you manage preparation for both?
A. Not really. The syllabus is kind of same. So, I was focussing more on JEE for now. I will not get to the preparation for the board exams.

There is focus on the goal which is JEE – both Mains and Advanced.

A. They are a necessity. First you get rid of the exam fear. So, when you finally sit for the actual exam, you are not afraid because its not new to you. As for mock tests, initially we had it once a week. After December 2022, we had one every day.
JEE previous years papers, mock test help you analyse your strengths and weaknesses. You can improve on the areas you are not doing well in. so they are a definite must in your preparation.
Q9: Are there any special books that you feel have helped with your JEE Main preparation? Are the school textbooks adequate for preparing for JEE Main and Class XII?

Q10: Which subject was the easiest and which was the toughest in JEE Main? What do you think is a tough thing to manage during the JEE Main exam?
A. For me, Maths is a bit tough. I scored 100 marks in both Physics and Chemistry. Maths was where I scored less and so I need to improve in it for my second attempt. Time management is something that one needs to be sure of. This is another area where constant practice with mock tests help a lot.
