Mock tests help the best!

To give you an example, see the following situations how a simple strategy change can make a difference in how in your end score.

Situation 1: You have decided that you will move to the next section only after completing the current one. Now if you get stuck with questions in the first section, you will lose valuable time and ultimately valuable marks.

Situation 2: You have decided to attempt the mathematics section first because mathematics is your favorite subject. But among the three sections, mathematics section is considered to the longest and also the trickiest. So, if you rigidly stick to a mathematics-first policy, it might not be effective.

Practise JEE Main sample papers

One major benefit of practising sample papers is you get to practise similar type of questions you might come across on exam day. Make it a point to practise at least a 4-5 sets of JEE Main sample paper; it will help you build concept, increase speed and give insights into how to manage your time.

Speed is welcome but Not Haste

The last few days leading up to the exam are about sharpening the edges, and less about building the edges. So, instead of trying to learn new concepts and new topics, you must try ways to score heavily in the areas you feel confident in. Now how does one score heavily?

JEE Main 2019 exam pattern comprises three sections: physics, chemistry and mathematics, with each section contributing 30 questions for a total of 90 questions. For each correct answer, you are awarded 4 marks while 1 mark is deducted for an incorrect attempt. You will have 180 minutes to complete the test.

If you look closely, getting a good score boils down to attempting the maximum questions with a healthy strike rate. To increase the strike rate, you must try to improve your speed and also adopt a smart strategy. Like instead of allotting 60 minutes for each paper, you must attempt the easy questions in each paper and then move on to the difficult and finally the most-difficult ones. Also, don’t commit the mistake of getting stuck with a question.

Mock tests and sample papers, as mentioned above, are reliable ways to improve speed and accuracy. Additionally, they will help the candidate find out the weak areas that needs attention.

Finally, don’t mistake speed for haste. Speed simply means you are solving or answering a question in less time, while haste has an element of carelessness attached to it.

New books and new topics are no-go zones

If there is a worst time to add to your collection of books, it is when there are so few days left before the exam day. This will only create unnecessary distraction and eat into your valuable time if you learn new concepts, when you should ideally be doing revision of old topics. Also, if you get stuck with a new topic, it will create nervousness, depression and anxiety, a cocktail that you could do without with.

The smart thing then to do instead is to invest all the time at your disposal to study what you have already read and fill the gaps wherever needed. The more gaps you fill, the more upbeat you will feel. Strengthen what you know so you ace that and leave the unknown ones for now.

Rely on notes instead of reading the whole book

If you have taken notes of the subjects, you can rely on them for quick revisions instead of reading the whole book every time. The purpose of notes is to cut off the chaff and keep the important points of every chapter. Also, the notes will encourage you to sharpen your memory as every time you read them you will try to remember the supplementary details included in the original book. You also save a lot of time with the short notes. In case you don’t have notes, you must focus on the highlighted areas of a book for quick revision.

Don’t look too far ahead

Spending too much time pondering about the outcome of the JEE Main 2019 will do nothing except build anticipation and pressure, which can sabotage years of hard work you have put in.

So if you feel like getting bogged down by expectations, get out of your study, have a light chit chat with your siblings, play your favourite game or whatever eases your mind. Let the emotions bottled inside you flow out. It will make life easier, preparation fun, and your mind sharper.

Reinforce Positivity in face of Negativity

One way to stay positive and upbeat is by staying away from negative people and vibes. Some may go on about how well they have prepared and some may crib about how tough it is. Both ways, it is detrimental for you to let it affect you. You need to hold strong to the belief that you have prepared well and will do well in the exam. Stay positive and focus on your strengths.

Get the right amount of beauty sleep!!

Sometimes in our urge to do well, we end up overdoing our bit and thereby spoiling our chances. A good example is forgoing sleep in an effort to maximise preparation time. But the problem is if you don’t sleep well, the next day you will wake up spent, with your mind wavering, spirits sagging, and body begging for rest. So, get rid of the false notion that studying hard is synonymous to reducing sleep time. Also, remember you need to be at your freshest on exam day and it is only possible if you get sufficient rest and sleep in the days leading up to the exam.

Social Media is a nuisance

Go to the internet and you will find n number of articles blaring out the negative side of social media, be it Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat. While there are two sides to everything, there is no denying that social media can be a big distraction during your studies. Imagine a scenario, where you are in the middle of solving a problem, and your phone beeps. Now if you can’t resist your curiosity, you will open the message, first thinking you would spend a few spends, only to find out that the message is about something that increases your curiosity or urge to get involved. So you end up diverting valuable time from your studies at a crucial time. The solution is to put your smart phone away; if you can’t do that make it a habit to open it only after you are done with your studies.

By following the last week preparation tips for JEE Main 2019 listed here, the candidate can give the necessary thrust needed to maximize his/her chances!

how can I prepare myself for jee mains in class 11

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 15th Oct, 2019

Dear Kaushik, if you are in Class 11, you will not have knowledge of 12th topics yet. So it is always important to focus on 11th topics in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Use this year to strengthen your basics, fasten your calculations and practise problem solving. Make a timetable and stick to it. Try to attempt atleast 1 mock test per week. You might not be able to score on 12th topics but try to work on all 11th topics. Memorise formulae and make sure you take short gaps between your study schedule. Follow NCERT because most of the times, NTA doesn't go beyond NCERT.
