How to Prepare for JEE Advanced 2020
The candidates can check below some tips from the past years toppers and experts to prepare for JEE Advanced 2020:
#1: Solving the previous year’s question papers in the best possible way
- Until 2012, solve the question papers topics wise.
- After 2012, solve the whole question paper at a go.
The reason behind this approach is that from 2013, the pattern of JEE Advanced was changed.
#2: Distribution of preparation in a day
- Divide your day into 3 parts – Morning, evening/afternoon and night
- In morning study chemistry, in evening/afternoon do mathematics and at night do the Physics subject.
In this way, you can revise all the subjects every day.
#3: Get the syllabus printed
- Take a topic from the syllabus to complete it and then underline it in the syllabus that you have completed it.
- Stick to the syllabus and do not attempt anything extra.
- Try to complete the syllabus minimum twice.
This gives you a confidence of how much you have completed in the syllabus. Also you can track your preparation.
#4: Inorganic Chemistry is more important than you actually think it is
- In order to raise the total marks in the exam, inorganic is the most scoring part.
- To do so, complete NCERT for Inorganic.
- Do not read the entire syllabus, read the topics mentioned in the syllabus. This is the most efficient tip to complete inorganic chemistry.
#5: In the exam period i.e. 9 AM to 12 noon and 3 PM to 6 PM, make sure you are studying or solving papers
- JEE Advanced is held from 9 AM to 12 noon and 3 PM to 6 PM, during these hours while your preparations, make sure you are engaged in studies or solving papers.
- If you sleep or do other activities in this period you get into the habit of doing so and on the day of the exam your efficiency decreases.
- Thus prepare yourself to be exam ready during these 6 hours of the day before the exam and until the day of the exam.
#6: Focus on the theory also
- Especially in maths, read the theory first and then solve the questions
#7: Most efficient way of solving the JEE Advanced Paper
- First work on accuracy more than your speed
- Solve the questions first in which the answer is a single option.
- Then move to paragraph type questions
- Then go for the numerical value type answers
- Next, do the natch ups
- The questions in which the answers are more than 1 must be solved at the end as they are the most time-consuming questions.
