Only 3 weeks are left for JEE now, and all of you who are going to sit for the exam must be excited or a little scared and worried.
So in this article we will be dealing with how to spend these3 weeks before the JEE, to ensure that you dont panic or worry at last minute and are able to pass the exam with flying colours.
So let us see the things you should be doing 3 weeks before JEE:
- REVISE – While many of you must be studying for several hours now in an attempt to put your best foot forward, let us tell you that taking in a lot of new information right now may not be a good idea. As far as you can, avoid studying anything new right now. You should spend this time in revising what you have studied and strengthening them, to ensure you don’t lose marks in those chapters at least. We have prepared a 3 week revision plan for you, to ensure that you devote enough time to all chapters with special focus on important chapters. Note that when we say revision – we mean that you study the important theorems and formulae, that you need to be able to remember. Any chapter that you have never studied, don’t spend time on it now.

|Week 2||Aldehydes and ketones, carboxylic acids, amines, biomolecules, polymers, surface chemistry, atomic structure, periodic table, chemical bonding, hydrogen, s block|

- Make a strategy – As important as it is to study well for JEE, it is also important to have a clear strategy in mind to attempt the paper. Things you should plan before-hand based on your strengths and preparation –
- Which section are you going to attempt first – P/C/M? – this can vary from student to student. We would suggest our students to attempt their best subject first, so that they can maximize your score and gain confidence. If you are unsure, a very common strategy is to attempt chemistry first, because chemistry usually takes less time to attempt, and it will decrease your pressure when you later attempt physics and maths which are longer.
- Attempt easy questions first – note that in JEE exam, you can easily score well if you only answer easy and medium questions. So your strategy should be to first answer easy questions in the entire paper, then come to medium questions. In case you are left with time, then start solving difficult and calculation based questions. You should start practising this in your mock tests itself.
But we understand that this is easier said than done. Reading questions first and then deciding which to attempt takes a lot of practice. You can reserve 2 mins at the start of each subject to skim through the paper. For computer-based exams, use the ‘download paper’ feature to be able to look at the entire paper at once.
These 2 mins at the start will save you a lot of time at the end, but this will happen only if you have practiced doing this in mock tests before.
- Time management – managing your time in exam is essential for many reasons. It ensures you attempt the entire paper and don’t panic. Start managing your time in mock tests itself. Decide how much time you are going to devote to each section and stick to it.
- Attempt mock tests – this is one of the most important things to do to improve your performance. Attempting mock tests has many benefits –
- It tells you how well prepared you are for the exam
- Tells you your strengths and weaknesses – it tells you which section P/C/M are you the best. Which chapters are your strongest, and you should start with attempting questions of that chapter, and so on.
- Stress management – when you have attempted papers exactly like your final exam, you get confidence and panic less for the actual exam
In fact, we have noticed with our students at Avanti that Just by attempting mock tests, your rank can increase by 20%. 20% means that if you were getting AIR 50,000, your rank can go to AIR 40,000 which can dramatically improve the chances of you getting a good college.
- Get in the schedule for your exam – your schedule nowadays must be different from actual exam day schedule. But to avoid panic and remain physically active and fresh on exam day, you should start getting in schedule for your exam. Before that, make sure you have checked your exam date, and shift on the JEE website.
- Start waking up at same time as you would need to on your exam day
- Start sleeping on time to ensure 8 hours of sleep
- Attempt your mock tests at your exam time – this will train your mind to be active at that time, and also get you in the habit of sitting for 3 hours straight
- Have a concrete strategy for all subjects –
- Physics – memorize all formulae by heart in the last month, and practice as many questions as you can
- Chemistry –
– Physical Chemistry
Go through all the chapters, study each and every formula and practice lots of questions. Most of the question in this section are application based and require the memorization of formulae and a little bit calculation.
– Organic Chemistry
You should know all the Reactions well, how they proceed and, the mechanism they follow. Most of the questions in JEE are based on how well you understood the mechanism of the reaction.
– Inorganic Chemistry
This section can easily fetch you 100% score – if you devote some time to it and if you are good at recalling concepts.
- Maths – Maths is best mastered through practice. Don’t sit and read solutions thinking it will save time – read the question and try to solve it on your own.
- Relax – along-with studying, it is also very important to rest your brain to help it work at its best. So take enough rest, talk to your family and friends, have a balanced diet, listen to music, etc. Having a healthy social life is also very important for your mental health.
We hope these points will help you and you will give your best shot at JEE.
