JEE Advance Prepartion Tips

It is imperative to keep in mind that structured and scientific approach to preparation can see you through and here are few tips from expert on the way forward:
1. Don’t drift away from the syllabus/prescribed books: It is the general tendency among students to consult too many study materials and/or test papers as a result they end up studying more than is required. Hence, students should focus only on the syllabus pertaining to IIT-JEE.
2. Analyse ‘what’ went wrong and ‘why’ it went wrong in JEE Advanced
3. Identify the weak areas and consult an expert faculty.
4. Start fresh and from scratch with requisite focus on Class XI and XII syllabus.
5. Remember, you need a competitive environment while studying, so that you get to learn from the peer group. Look out for such a group or join a coaching institute that offers one.
6. Prepare weekly study plan with study milestones marked. Stick to it under any circumstances.
7. Focus on the fundamental concepts and its application.
8. Try to finish the syllabus by December 2017, so that you could revise appropriately.
9. Prepare good quality revision notes so that you can engage in quick revision at a later stage. If you are going to re-appear for the boards, ensure you are preparing your model answer and notes too.
10. Write sufficient number of standard All India mock tests to see how you are progressing. Analyse every test performance. Monitor your percentile in the mocks to see that you are featuring in top category of students consistently. Review it with ‘Rank Potential Index’ — an indicator which enables you to understand the kind of rank you could expect in the actual exam based on the preparation level at the time of writing the mock exam.
11. Strength and weakness analysis: Students reappearing for IIT-JEE will always have an edge since they have already gone through the process/experience of writing the exam before. They would exactly know ‘what to do’ and ‘what not to do’ in the second attempt. Hence, a student should always keep the previous experience of do’s and don’ts in mind.
