IIT JEE Main Exam

The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2019 will be administered by the National Testing Agency in the CBT (computer-based) mode. The Agency has announced the exam dates. It will commence from 6th to 20th January 2019 in 8 sittings. With a few days left, you need to concentrate on the following important aspects to ace the examination.

Time Management:

It is advised to make a short timetable for a week or 10 days. Spend the last days of your preparation phase in solving as many mock tests as you can (at least one mock test every day). Analyse the mock test result and work on your weaknesses.  Make time to revise important concepts.

Don’t forget to include breaks between your study hours. Avoid late night studies and take a minimum sleep of 7 to 8 hours at night.

Study Strategy:

Study from your old books and notes only. NCERT books are the best. An ideal strategy would include revision in the morning hours, mock test during the noontime and in the evening study time, you can work on your mistakes in the mock test. Don’t forget to solve the JEE Main previous years’ question papers.

Solving previous years’ question papers and mock tests makes you familiar with the exam pattern and helps in improving speed and accuracy.
