Your JEE Main 2020 preparation would be incomplete without proper revision and practice.
Cracking JEE Main is crucial to take admission in various engineering colleges across India. And if you want the college and branch of your choice, you really have to get a good rank in JEE main exam. Now since the competition is increasing with the increasing number of students, you should know how to set yourself apart from the rest. Here’s how you should do the JEE Main Revision to give your best shot in the final exam:
1. Identify, Revise and Consolidate
You first have to identify your strong and weak areas before moving ahead. From each subject, pick up three chapters that you are strong in and one chapter that is your weakness. While doing so, try to match similar topics together, such as Electrostatics and Gravitation.
Now, carry out your revision in the following manner:
- Pick up your notes and memorize the important formulas from that chapter.
- Check whether you remember the important concepts by solving a few questions.
- If you feel any concept is unclear, look up that particular concept in the NCERT.
You will be able to complete this in 3 hours lump-sum. A good revision is a secret behind the success of toppers in JEE.
2. Solve mock tests and past year papers
You should practice at least 3 hours every day to solve JEE Main mock tests and sample papers. It is better to practice from the past year papers as you will come to know the pattern and difficulty level. You will be able to analyze your preparation so far while boosting your confidence and enhancing your exam temperament.
Set a timer before beginning the paper so that you know how to manage time and pressure during the actual JEE Main 2020 exam. While attempting the paper, try to make conditions as ideal to the actual situation with zero distractions.
3. Subject wise revision strategy
- Go through a chapter from your notes as quickly as possible. If a certain topic is not clear, refer to NCERT and Aakash Digital study package.
- Try to visualize the different mechanisms and processes for better understanding.
- Remember the formulas and their derivations as well.
- Solve as many numerical as possible to get command over a concept.
- Make sure you understand all the concepts and remember the formulae as well as reaction mechanisms.
- Give more time to organic chemistry as it is more scoring and vast as compared to physical and inorganic chemistry.
