To avoid that boredom, you can opt for different learning mediums. For instance, if you studied just from books in your previous attempt, you can enrol for JEE Main online courses offering live interactive classes and recorded video lectures. This will not just keep you motivated but will also boost your interest level in studies.
Learn from your mistakes in the last attempt in JEE Main
The first step in JEE Main 2021 preparation for the second attempt is to look back and find out the mistakes that became a hindrance in your success. It could be anything from your timetable to the selection of coaching institute, learning techniques and revision.

Not managing time well
If you think that you couldn’t manage your study time well due to a lot of travelling, going digital this time is the right choice.
There are students who hesitate to ask their doubts in the class and skip the topics completely. If you also avoid asking doubts in front of other students, you can download Aakash iTutor app and can ask your doubts direct from teachers in the ‘Ask from an expert’ section.
No matter how intelligent someone is, revision is essential to perform well in the exam. You can make the process easy and effective by revising the syllabus and important topics by watching videos.
Wrong learning style
Every student has their own learning style like audio, visual, verbal, physical etc. Having knowledge of your learning style helps you choose the most suitable technique. Based on your learning style, you can either choose one or go for blended learning like live interactive videos, e-books, webinars and printed study material.
Start learning through digital mediums
If you had opted for classroom coaching for JEE Main preparation, this is the time to bring a few changes in your learning mediums. This is the time to enrol for Aakash Digital’s specialized repeaters batch for JEE and start preparation of JEE Main 2021 from the convenience of your home. It will not just help you save a lot of time wasted on daily travel but will also help you make a better study plan by utilizing those precious hours.
Every year, a student wastes almost 2 months in travelling to attend their coaching classes. For a crucial exam like JEE, these 2 months make a lot of time, which you can effectively use for revision by opting to study from home.
Focus on improvement and smart work
As you have already covered complete JEE Main syllabus in your previous attempt, there is no use of wasting time again on the same thing. To ensure that you don’t get stuck on the same topics or subjects again, enrol for subject-specific JEE course at Aakash iTutor. You can buy courses in recorded video lectures to learn the selected topics. In your second attempt for JEE Main, you should be more focused on smart work than hard work.
Solve more practice tests
Solving practice tests is one of the best ways to check how well you have understood the topic, how quickly you can solve the questions and how well you understand the questions. Along with going through the syllabus and revision, you should lay equal emphasis on solving mock tests, practice tests and previous year papers. As the exam is conducted in the computer-based test (CBT) format, solving online JEE Main practice tests can be a good idea. With the help of the answer keys and modular test analysis by experienced teachers, you can understand your weaknesses and mistakes and can correct them.
Consider quality study material
To ace JEE Main 2021, you should look for the best study material, which is not just limited to the course books. Well-curated study material includes printed books, e-books, recorded video lectures and test series, which you can easily get at Aakash Digital.
Losing positivity and confidence is a mistake most of the students make after knowing that they couldn’t crack JEE Main. This makes the situation worse for them by giving extra stress and pressure of performing better in JEE Main 2021. Instead of thinking of the previous result, you should focus on your goal of cracking JEE 2021.
So, don’t feel dejected as this is not the end of the world. Take a time-out and start a new journey to come out with flying colours in your second attempt. By correcting your mistakes and getting the right guidance, you can really make it big.
