The JEE Main Entrance Examination is one of the toughest examinations conducted at the national level for giving admission to students for the various undergraduate course in engineering—mechanical engineering, civil engineering, computer science engineering, electronics engineering, etc. There are two levels of entrance examination in the JEE entrance examination—Main and Advanced. The former is the initial stage whereas the latter is the final stage. Those, who pass Main, go for Advanced. The JEE entrance examination is so tough that only a few students can make it.
As discussed above, the JEE Main is the initial stage of the JEE entrance examination; students need to work very hard to qualify for it. The three subjects, which are covered in this exam, include Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. There is a prescribed syllabus for each subject. Unless students have excellent preparation for these subjects, they cannot think of qualifying for this level of entrance examination. Candidates should note that mugging on the subjects is a mockery of this exam. Whether they join any coaching institute or do self-study, they have to devote most of their times into its preparation. More often than not, it has been perceived visually that in spite of working very hard candidates end up spoiling their papers due to ticklish questions asked in the examination. In order to cope with this problems, candidates are advised to solve the JEE Main Previous Year question papers. Doing this will make them confident as previous year questions are often repeated for the forthcoming JEE entrance examination.
If students solve papers of these two last years, they will get an idea about the type of questions asked in the forthcoming JEE entrance examination. Before solving them, they should be entirely clear with the concepts and principles involved therein. Theory and numerical portions are equally crucial for the papers. Numericals are technically based, so they should lay focus on technical problems. They should avoid mugging on the subjects as it is a sheer wastage of time. In spite of having any problems, they should consult their teachers. Nor should they try to help themselves.
