The Joint Entrance Examination or JEE is the gateway to studying engineering and is considered as one of the most standard exams in the country. JEE is mainly divided into 2 segments, JEE-main and JEE-advanced, both conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).  The JEE-Main is conducted for entrance in institutes like The Indian Institutes of Information Technology and The National Institute of Technology, whereas the JEE-Advanced exam is predominantly for cracking the most prestigious series of Institutions, The Indian Institute of Technology or IIT in India. A Strategy is defined as the plan adopted when faced with an obstacle or enemy. So as while planning a battle we must:

  • Learn about the enemy or in this case the examination.

Knowing yourself is arguably the second most important thing you need to be worrying about. There are 3 subjects in the exam namely Physics, Chemistry and Math. Identify which one of these is your best suit and which one you are not quite confident with. Work on removing any imperfections. Also to remember is that Never Waste Time. While you waste even a minute some other people are getting ahead of you. Enroll right after the class 10 examination.

Other Things to Know About:

  • Understand the fundamentals of the Subjects instead of learning them by heart. The questions which usually come in the exam focus more on natural applications of the theory of the books. So plan to study accordingly, instead of learning the words on the books equate them to real life happenings.
  • Focus equally on all the three subjects. The syllabus spans over a lot of content, but omitting chapters or selective studying is highly discouraged. Because the questions in the exam, being of objective type may come from any corner of the syllabus. Extensive and thorough study should be done of the entire subject matter.
  • Keep up a continuous effort. Remember studying one subject for a few days and then another, this policy will not work. It is advisable to study all 3 subjects each day; it helps in all round preparation and breaks monotony.
