Here’s how to Conquer Goliath: Tips to Crack JEE
Heard of the David & Goliath story? Those who haven’t, here is a quick snippet. David, a young teenage boy, challenged Goliath for a fight. Goliath was a visibly stronger opponent against the underdog David. However, thanks to his presence of mind, the young boy pinned down his stronger warrior with a sling shot.
At the moment, you may feel like David and the upcoming JEE exams as the Goliath. The morale of the story is, no matter how challenging a situation is, there is always a way out. Just stick to the following tips that can make you a winner by the end.
Follow a Sequential Plan
Start with difficult chapters and those sections that carry more weightage in the exam. For instance, do or die chapters of Mathematics like Probability, Trigonometric Functions, and Quadratic equations need to be studied first. Similarly in Physics, pay more attention to Newton’s Law of motion, Thermodynamics and Mechanics first and then move to other chapters. An understanding of these topics will help you in learning other chapters. As for Chemistry, it’s best to start with atomic structure and then move on to chapters that deal with complex chemical equations.
Join a Reputed Coaching Academy
It’s advised to join a reputable coaching academy. JEE is a competitive examination and requires a lot of dexterity and foolproof study strategy. Coaching institutes play an integral role in helping students develop problem-solving skills by conducting regular mock exams and doubt resolution sessions. For instance, Aakash Institute conducts its flagship mock test series named as All India Aakash Test Series that is quite helpful for students. You have Aakash Institute Pune, for instance which has received grave reviews from parents and students alike. So, you can attend classroom sessions and mock tests in your home town only. If you reside in Pune, there are at least two Aakash Institute branches in the city. Each branch or center is fully equipped with the best classroom infrastructure, competent faculty and other facilities that enable students to receive robust guidance and counselling.
Carve out time for Revision
You may have covered the chapters in Inorganic Chemistry months before, but have you revised them recently? Given the mammoth size of the JEE syllabus, you may be still left with few chapters. However, don’t make the mistake of giving up on revision. As the entrance exam date gets closer, it’s time to revisit those chapters that you have covered previously. Practice test questions, re-read theories, and refer to notes and study materials provided to you.
Track your Progress
You may be very confident about your preparation. But, have you been tracking your progress? To track your progress in a realistic manner, you must take regular mock tests. Several notable coaching institutes offer a full-fledged mock test series. Mock test questions are mostly developed by a team of experienced and component professionals who are fully aware of the exam pattern, question trends and other nitty-gritty pertaining to the main exam.
Nearly 2 Lakhs or more students appear for JEE every year. The competition is cut-throat, therefore, never put your guard down. Having stated that, JEE maybe tough but it’s not unachievable. Just put the best foot forward and success will come rolling towards you.
