The JEE Advanced examination is the second stage of the JEE Mains examination conducted as a centralised entrance exam for most top-tier engineering colleges such as all the 23+ IITs, IIITs, and NITs. This exam is considered one of the most challenging exams in the nation, with millions of applicants every year. It is tough to crack the JEE Mains, let alone JEE Advanced.
Here are a few simple steps to aid your preparation for JEE Advanced 2021:
- Always Study in a Subject-specific manner:
Don’t just start your preparation with all the subjects at once. Keep all the preparation materials and separate them. This will help you categorise your exam syllabus and prepare better. You can learn one topic or chapter at a time and keep solving practice exercises for the same. Unless you rigorously understand that chapter, do not move on to the next one. You will get confused at the end if you do. Make notes on all the subjects you study and keep them handy.
- Start with the Easy and Common Books:
The preparation for the physics section of the JEE Advanced exam can begin with HC Verma’s Concept of Physics and a rough overview of the simple questions on IE Irodov’s Physics books. Learn up each concept and practice the illustrated examples first. Once you get the hang of it, practice the unsolved examples. You can start by reading KL Chugh’s Chemistry series, followed by the NCERT chemistry book. Even the CISCSE prescribed Nootan Chemistry is an easy book to follow. For maths, start with the class eleven and class 12 board syllabus preparations. Know all the important concepts in the NCERT book. You may also choose to follow RS Aggarwal and ML Aggarwal’s books on JEE mathematics.
- Schedule Your Study Process by the Day:
Prepare a schedule for your journey to mastering all the topics under the JEE advanced examination. Even if you can dedicate around 3-4 hours daily, make sure that duration is for focused study. It is better to plan what you will study for the day to measure your process better without having to flip through the pages over and over again. This also helps you in organising your subjects and study material properly instead of just mugging up everything.
- Practice to Manage Time Efficiently
If you aim to crack the JEE Advanced 2021 exam, you must be adept at time management. You cannot waste your time on tough questions or lengthy questions during the real exam. You may miss out on the bunch of easy questions at the same exam if you do so. It is required that you attempt only the ones you are sure of while going through the paper. Only after you have attempted the ones you are confident about successfully, begin working out the conceptual ones. You need to practise 100s of test papers to ace this time management skill during the exam. Solving test papers in restricted time is crucial for your JEE Advanced 2021 preparation.
- Register and Be Prepared Beforehand
Don’t miss out on the important dates. For any information about the exam process and the result dates, visit the official JEE Mains and Advanced website. Remember to print out your admit card on time and reach the exam centre at least one hour before the commencement of the examination. This reduces your exam pressure since you don’t have to panic at the last minute for little reasons, such as not finding your ID proof or admit card print out.
The excessive reliance on coaching centres and private tuitions have also attracted the mass towards this exam. It is almost impossible for you to qualify for the JEE Advanced 2021 exam if you have not prepared well enough beforehand. You can also practice the last few years of question papers and take mock tests before appearing at the actual exam. Remember, for cracking JEE Advanced 2021 preparation is the key.
