JEE Main Exam pattern
While penning down the study plan for JEE Main 2020, brief yourself with JEE Main exam pattern to take your preparation to a higher level by making your brain aware of the types of questions expected and the marking scheme of the paper.

Notes and Self Study
Make self-study the foundation of your preparation and notes the building stones of that foundation. Apart from devoting time in school and coaching (if you have enrolled in one) extract some time for self-study. Making notes will result in the clarity of concepts and resolution of doubts in addition to creating a quick revision guide for those last days of preparation.

Distractions are your enemies
It is beneficial to consider books as your friends but do not forget that distractions are your biggest enemies and a barrier to your preparation. Figure out every possible thing that may distract you from your preparation and ensure that you stay away from them. Prepare your JEE Main study plan keeping this important point in mind.

Along with the hard work spanning day and night, evaluating your preparation is very much necessary. Practice the previous year question papers to keep a check on your preparation. This will help you to figure out your strengths and weaknesses so that you can increase your efforts accordingly. Click here to go through the latest JEE Main papers for self evaluation.

Daily dose of motivation
No matter how hard working your brain is, it is natural to expect it to get tired which will eventually push you to demotivate and stress. You need to figure out your stress busters to feed yourself with daily dose of motivation. Remember that you also need to take timely breaks to avoid monotony and tiredness. A tired mind makes more mistakes therefore it is important to keep it fresh and that is done through breaks and motivating activities.

diploma students doing jee preparation

Siddhi Shenoy 11th Nov, 2019

Hello aspirant,

A diploma student who has completed his degree or is in his final year, is eligible to apply for JEE Main. But he won't be able to pursue admission in NIT. The candidate must clear JEE Mains after which he has to clear JEE advanced.

There are 2 types of papers. Paper 1 is for B.Tech (Engineering) and paper 2 is for B.Arch (Architecture). For paper 1, the syllabus includes Physics, chemistry and mathematics. The paper will contain 30 MCQs for each of the subjects mentioned.

Refer to the syllabus of class 11th and 12th for PCM. Also, go through some reference books and try solving as many MCQs as possible. Try looking for short cut methods to solve sums in order to save time. You can also refer YouTube for tricks to solve difficult sums. Also try not to use guessing game as it might affect your marks. Go for an answer only if you are sure of it.

Good luck.


I pass 12th in Maharashtra board and my village is in karnataka so I have SC cast certificate so that certificate is work in jee counselling

Sharon Rose Student Expert 11th Nov, 2019

Hello Dilip,

A candidate belonging to reserved category must provide a caste certificate issued by the competent authority in the prescribed format by the Government of India.As long as you have a valid certificate you don't need to worry.If your present caste certificate is in correct order then you are good to carry it.And yes, you can provide your caste certificate at the time of JEE main counselling.

I hope this is helpful to you.


I want to clear jee exam what i do

Ronak Gala Student Expert 11th Nov, 2019

Some of the tips that I can give you is stay honest with yourself. Make a schedule for yourself and start following it regularly. Try to solve as many as mcqs and numericals possible especially for physics and maths. And for chemistry, try to read as much as more as you can and also practice mcqs for organic chemistry and numericals for physical chemistry. Take help of good books.

And don't forget to give mock tests. They will help you a lot to make you realize the pattern of the paper and syllabus and accordingly you can find where you lag and what you need to work on.

Best wishes. thankyou.
