As the dates for JEE Main 2019 get closer, preparations for the exam reach an all new level. Candidates go through a mixed bag of feelings – excitement, anxiety, tension, nervousness and more. But it is highly important to stay grounded and calm to be able to give your best shot.
We should understand that preparations done during the last days before JEE Main will be very different from the ones done normally, so doing them right will only help in producing the best results.
Here are some last-minute preparation tips suggested by experts and toppers to ensure good performance and success in JEE 2019:
Focusing on your strengths is the key
It’s not the time to start anything new. Focus on building your strengths instead. You must have already laid emphasis on certain topics so far. Make sure you don’t skip any question pertaining to those topics.
Revise all the important topics & formulae
Use your short notes to revise the important topics and formulae because you will barely have time to check them in detail. Check and revise the topics that have more weightage.
Keep self-doubts away
There won’t be room for low self-confidence. The last days for revision before the exam are crucial. So keep cool and try not to let stress get to you. Focus on your strengths and be mentally strong. Check important topics, take a mock test, review, and move to the next task without letting any doubts creep in. You can revise concepts and clear doubts anytime by asking subject matter experts themselves through ‘Ask an Expert’ feature in Aakash iTutor app.
Select the order of your subjects
The question paper for JEE Main 2019 will have three different sections for each subject. Follow the order you are comfortable with to get the best result. Here are the subjects with the sections:
- Physics – 30 questions
- Chemistry – 30 questions
- Mathematics – 30 questions
- Aptitude Test – 50 questions
- Drawing – 2 questions
- Mathematics – 30 questions
Don’t discuss your preparation level
It’s a common tendency to discuss the status of your preparation with others, to find out where you or they stand. This barely helps, as their preparation will not boost yours in any way. Instead, you just may be demoralized if you feel like your preparation is weaker than theirs. So avoid such discussions.
Keep things real
While many suggests taking as many mock tests as possible, it is a fact that you can take only one or two mock tests properly. Sitting and solving mock tests all day long is impossible, improbable and definitely not the right way to do so. Keep it real – take one mock test per day. Review and revise to ensure that you have corrected all the mistakes so that you don’t repeat them during the actual exam. You can do it with Aakash PracTest as it improves your preparation with modular analysis. Moreover, as JEE Main 2019 is a computer-based exam, online practice tests will help you in getting acquainted with all aspects of the exam.
Take adequate breaks
Small breaks during your lessons help in reducing fatigue, refresh your mind and improve your concentration level while you start to study again.
Good sleep is a must: Lack of sleep will only result in high exam stress level, fatigue and a drop in concentration and confidence. Make sure you get the right amount of sleep to combat exam stress during JEE 2019 preparation.
Don’t fall prey to negative marking: You know best whether you’ll be able to answer a specific question or not. If you feel you can’t figure an answer, move on. The risk of answering it will only increase the chances of getting negative marks that can drastically affect your final score.
Follow these last minute preparation tips and appear in the exam confidently. We wish you all the best!
