how can i score 150+ marks in jee mains april if i start from today.and please strategy which chapter is important and not.

Anupam Kumar Student Expert 23rd Oct, 2019

Hey there

Getting 150+ is a little tough you start preparing from now honestly. See if you have atleast prepared good for boards and know basic PCM then you can get 150+ which requires hard work. First you need to memorize the whole NCERT of chemistry thoroughly. If you had done coachings then revise the notes properly and solve as many questions as you can from chemistry make it your strong subject because it's scoring and can give you 60+ easily if you'll be honest with the subject. Then maths is also scoring for that solve rd Sharma, coaching notes and materials and advance previous year questions. Same for physics. In physics 12th portion is important as it will come in boards also. Rotation is important. You can take help of video lectures from unacademy, byju's etc.

NSUT Delhi cut off of JEE MAINS for B.tech(IT) ? ( GENERAL CATEGORY)

Aman Raj Student Expert 22nd Oct, 2019

Hello Subrata

It depends from where you are. If you are residing in Delhi then you can get COE with a rank of *2700-3000 but if you are from Outside Delhi region then you have to get a rank Under 1500 to get a seat.

But you can get Biotechnology with 38k rank (Delhi region).

*These are last year figures.

Anupam Kumar Student Expert 22nd Oct, 2019

Hey there

Getting 40+ is not a tough task you can easily score this much if you have even a little knowledge of pcm of even board level. See you should complete NCERT chemistry thoroughly it will easily give you 40+ alone but even if you partially complete it you can score 25+ rest 15 you can score from maths and physics by solving rd Sharma and Pradeep's physics numericals.

Good luck
