WBJEE 2019 Syllabus

Candidates must follow the syllabus of WBJEE 2018 when preparing for the exam, as very few questions are asked outside it. The exam conducting body has released the WBJEE 2019 separately for the three subjects – Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. When making a study plan, the candidate needs to ensure that they consider the weightage carried by various topics. This will enable the candidate to focus on more scoring areas, while also ensuring they have all the bases covered.

Previous year’s WBJEE Exam Analysis

As per feedback from students who appeared in WBJEE 2018, the Mathematics paper was difficult compared to previous years. Of the three sections, Section C was the easiest, followed by Sections A and B. The paper was lengthy, with many application-based questions. Mathematics was also the most difficult of the three subjects. Both physics and chemistry were of moderate difficulty level. Interestingly, chemistry didn’t include any numerical questions. As for physics, many students found Kinematics to be a bit tricky.

How to Prepare for WBJEE 2019

There is no-shortcut to success, so the candidates need to pull up their socks and get going. Here are some points that candidate may bear in mind during WBJEE 2019 preparation:

  • Check out the syllabus: Most students do, but is important that the candidate also chalks out a strategy to tackle it. For example, the candidate may find some chapters to be easy and some difficult. So, instead of spending time on the difficult ones, the candidate may first complete the easier topics, and then come to the difficult ones later. That being said, some chapters are also interlinked, meaning the concepts you read in one topic may help you understand another topic better. If that is the case, you have to follow the correct sequence. It is also not a bad idea to find out weightage carried by different topics.

  • Prepare and stick to a study plan: When preparing a study schedule, ensure it is realistic. It means allocating time for each topic based on how much time you think will be needed to complete them. The schedule should also have provisions for revision and other activities like mock tests and solving of sample papers. Finally, don’t forget to do timely review. If at any stage of preparation, if you feel you are lagging behind or things are not going according to plan, you also be ready to make changes to the plan.

  • Do timely revision: You have to revisit many of the topics you have read, as it is not possible to retain everything at one sitting. Generally, you will need more and frequent revision of difficult topics. When planning revision, it is prudent to not put subsequent revision too far apart. It is because, if the time lag is more your earlier effort will be less prominent, and you will more like you are reading the topic for the first time.

  • Solve sample and take mock tests: Theoretical knowledge is important, but it is equally, if not more, important to have problem solving skills. And you can develop this skill by solving WBJEE question and sample papers. Also, since sample papers contains similar type of questions to the ones asked in the exam, it will help you gauge the difficulty level of the exam and types of questions asked. In the final months or days, taking mock test of WBJEE is also recommended to get into exam mode.

  • Don’t push yourself too hard or overdo things: If your preparation is working like a well-oiled machine, you don’t push it so hard that it breaks down. Take for example, if you are studying 7-8 hours a day, and you are ahead of schedule, you don’t have to suddenly go to 10-12 hours a day. It is because putting additional stress on the body might bring down efficiency and there is also the possibility of burning out.

  • Stay healthy: This point is an extension of the previous point. In the race to complete the syllabus, many students forget to take proper care of their health. But please note that when you are healthy, your efficiency would be much higher than when your body is exhausted. So, ensure you have your full quota of sleep, eat healthy food, take timely break between studies.

Best books for WBJEE 2019 Preparation

Reading from good books, which explain concepts lucidly, have minimum errors and problem sets, is a recipe for success. Also please note not to cram your study with books, as you will get lost in it. Instead, buy as few books as you can, only ensure that they cover all the bases. Make it a point that you take notes during study and underline key points.
