How to prepare for JEE Advanced 2018?

You have precious little time left to prepare for JEE Advanced 2018. Only the best of the best can, first of all, be eligible for it. If you cross the first hurdle (JEE Main) and be in the top 2,24,000 performers, then you truly achieve a great feat.

Preparation for JEE Main and JEE Advanced go hand in hand. A more detailed guide can be read here for JEE Advanced Preparation.

Key points to keep in mind are:

  • JEE Advanced 2018 will throw a few surprises; be prepared for them.
  • You should have strong calculating powers.
  • Focus on improving your speed and accuracy.
  • Take mock tests, solve previous year question papers (solve at least past 10 year papers), solve sample papers.
  • Do not fear the exam.

Most importantly: The last lap of preparation should be more about revision, strength building, gap filling (studying to get some idea of topics which have been left untouched until now).

JEE Advanced 2018 Exam Pattern

Only two things in JEE Advanced are certain: online mode and 3 hours each for paper 1 and paper 2.

Those who get services of a scribe get one hour extra.

There are two papers namely paper 1 and paper 2 in JEE Advanced; both are compulsory. Their exam pattern is not revealed before the exam actually takes place. Hence candidates can only look at past year papers and prepare with the mindset that anything may come in exam.

Here is an analysis of past three years of JEE Advanced.

Each year there were three parts of each paper.

  1. Physics
  2. Chemistry
  3. Mathematics

Further, there were three sections in each part.

Each section had a different type of question. Types of the questions and their marking scheme were as follows.

JEE Advanced 2018 Question Papers

Exam is online this time. There will be single question paper in online mode for each paper, 1 and 2. In each paper there will be 3 seperate sections – Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.

Candidates can move between the sections (you can answer questions in any order in any section).

The description of each section will be given at the beginning of that section.

Until now JEE Advanced question papers became publicly available shortly after the exam. Coaching centres and education experts released them with solutions by midnight of the same day. But now that exam is online, there is no surety on how JEE Main 2018 question papers will be available just after the exam. Although later on they will for sure be uploaded by IITs as is the norm.

JEE Advanced 2018 Answer Key

Category-wise All India Ranks (AIR) of successful candidates will be available through the online portal after the results are declared. Text messages will also be sent to the candidates to their registered mobile numbers. Individual rank cards will NOT be sent to candidates.

Tie Breaking

  • Candidate with higher marks in Mathematics gets a better rank.
  • If that score is equal then one with higher marks in Physics gets a better rank.
  • If the tie persists, then the same rank will be awarded.

However, qualifying in JEE Advanced (2018), filling up choices and/or participating in the joint seat allocation process do not guarantee a candidate to get admission in IITs. Admission will depend on the availability of seats during various rounds of seat allocation.
