Students Speak: JEE Main Preparation During COVID-19; Vaishnavi Vinod
Students Speak: JEE Main Preparation During COVID-19; Vaishnavi Vinod - In the present times when India is under lockdown and people are stuck at their homes because of a worldwide pandemic due to Coronavirus, various events have been surpassed off their schedule. One of such events is the April 2020 session of JEE Main exam that has affected thousands of engineering aspirants in India. Vaishnavi Vinod is one of the aspirants who feels the other way around that the postponement has brought in the opportunity for her to prepare in a better way as till now she had to keep up with the class 12 board exams. However the syllabus is not different for the two, the strategy to approach both the exams brings in the difference. In a conversation with Careers360, Vaishnavi shares how she is utilizing this bonus period and why she is not that stressed up with the situation.
Careers360 - What are your thoughts on JEE Main 2020 being postponed?
Vaishnavi - Well I guess with the postponement of JEE Main April session, I got more time to prepare for the exam. I was not much prepared as I had my Board exams and I was studying in an entrance oriented school. So I believe I was a bit lagging behind when it came to board exams due to which I gave 2 whole months for those exams. I can say that I am a bit happy as I got additional time to prepare for JEE Main.
Careers360 - What is your preparation strategy during lockdown?
Vaishnavi - When it comes to strategy, I am not following any papers as such for now as I have forgotten many concepts covered in class 11. So I am focussing on those concepts through hearing classes as it helps more in understanding and memorizing concepts as compared to reading things.
Careers360 - How much time are you able to devote for studies these days?
Vaishnavi - There is no fixed number of hours as it depends upon the topics I take up for a day. However, it's around 5-6 hours approximately and I don’t take up all the subjects in one go. I take up one subject at a time like for the last 4 days, I took up organic chemistry which I feel a bit lacking at.
Careers360- Do you practice JEE Main mock tests often?
Vaishnavi - I don’t actually take up online mock tests as I prefer offline ones. I have a few books that I prefer for practising question papers.
Careers360 - Do you have any particular topics under focus in this period?
Vaishnavi - Yes there are many such pointed topics under hand like for Physics, class 11 topics of Fluid and Thermodynamics. For Chemistry the basic concepts, hydrocarbons, organic, etc. For mathematics, I am looking for integrals and limits.
Careers360 - How are you coping up with the exam stress?
Vaishnavi - As there is plenty of leisure, there is less stress as there is less study time. I am enjoying a lot of activities like yoga, cooking and there is much more.
Careers360 - What would you like to say to students like you in your current situation?
Vaishnavi - I think at this moment things should be taken in it’s flow and thus, one should study for sure. But this is the time to indulge into activities that one might be missing to do as at this time, the boards just got over due to which, most of the students would have not enjoyed peace for a year or more due to studies. This is the right time to focus upon the mental and social health keeping apart the habit of reading and social media. Don’t take it as a quarantine period and take it as a time to do something different.

i am a JEE ASPIRANT although I am good at concepts in mathematics I amnt good at solving problems , I need to solve in a level wise I mean the hardness level can u suggest me some good books ..so that I a can download it if possible plz send me link to download, this would help
can I get 99+% in jee mains if I start from preparing for it from class 12 and as well as my class 11 is also not that much good...... if I can...how !??
Yes..you can..Everything is possible if one puts hardwork and determination for the goal.
Now coming to the practical process, since you have mentioned that your class 11th is weak,so i am assuming that didn't pay much attention to your studies in class 11th.Beforebgoing further into the preparation the first and foremost thing you need to do is to go back into the chapters of class 11th and study what you have missed because getting good score in JEE, you basic concepts and understanding should be very clear.Give 2 months to the class 11th portion and complete it full-fledged. After that you will be set for class 12th, now start with NCERTs and then move to the standard books.
Divide time equally for every subject or based on your preference.Devote 10-12 hours daily and note that daily means everyday because consistency is the key..you can take 1 days off after 6 days of dedicated studying.
After completing 50% syllabus, start solving previous year JEE question papers and jot down your weak and strong areas and work on it accordingly.
After completing the syllabus,give lot of mock tests honestly and analyze them afterwards.
Be positive during the preparation and take care of your mental and physical health.
Be honest with yourself and give your best everyday.
