Saisrinandan Ch 3rd Apr, 2020

Hello,

For admissions into B.Tech program, JEE Main score is NOT mandatory.

Amity University

Sharda University

ITM University Gurgaon

Lovely professional University

Hope this helps.

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 4th Apr, 2020
Hello,


It depends on when you are going to appear for the exam.If you are going appear in JEE that is going to be conducted probably next month then now you should focus more and more on revision.Solve past year papers and mock test.Don't start any new topic because this will eat your time and if you will not master the topic then your self confidence will get down so keep revision what you have read.

Now, if you are preparing for next year then you have plenty of time and you must use it effectively and efficiently for good results.
First go through the syllabus and mark you weak and strong areas and based on that start your preparation.
Start with NCERT then move to standard books mentioned below:

Mathematics
Trigonometry by S. L. Loney
Higher Algebra by Hall & Knight
Maths XI & XII by NCERT
Co-ordinate Geometry by S. L. Loney
Problems in Calculus of One Variable by I.A. Maron

Physics
Problems in General Physics by I.E. Irodov
Fundamentals of Physics by Halliday, Resnick & Walker
Concepts of Physics Vol I and II by H.C. Verma

Chemistry
Organic Chemistry by Paula Bruice Yurkanis
Organic Chemistry by Morrison & Boyd
Inorganic Chemistry by J.D. Lee
Numerical Chemistry by P. Bahadur

After completion of the syllabus just strat doing revision and online mocks at the same time.
Avery important thing that you must do is solving last year question papers as this will boost you confidence and will build understanding and mindset of solving questions within a time frame.

Apart from studies, Take care of your health,eat nutritional food and take good sleep,stay away from social media.Spend time with family and close friends who motivates you.
