More importantly the new JEE main exam is being conducted in India for the first time. With so much competetion that every student has to face, there will be a lot of stress on those preparing for the JEE mains exam. www.myengg.com attemps to provide a few tips to students attempting JEE Mains offline mode exam, to help them relieve of some stress.
The students abilities are tested in M,P,C subjects (JEE Maths, JEE Physics and JEE Chemistry). Note: JEE MAIN paper-1 conducted on 7th april will be for admission to BE, BTech courses and JEE Main paper-2 conducted on 7th april will for admission to B.Arch courses and will include Maths, Aptitude and drawing.
One important thing to remember is that maximizing the total score in JEE main is the most important aspect. You dont get awards for getting all the Maths questions right for example, at the cost of losing score in the other two subjects. hence aim at maximizing the total score.
spend the first 2 minutes to briefly go through all the questions of the entire JEE main paper, this will give you a feel of what is there in the entire paper and where the questions of your favorite subject are. The 2 minutes spent doing so are spent very well.
Attempt JEE Mains in 2 rounds with in the stipulated time: for example: Divide the JEE Main exam yourself into 2 rounds, the first one for 2.5 hours and the 2nd one (high speed round) for the next 0.5 hours. It is best to attempt all easy and average difficulty questions in the first 2.5 hours, leaving the difficult and time taking questions to the 2nd round, i.e, the last half an hour of the JEE Main exam. With in the first 2.5 hours itself, divide the time between all the three subjects, i.e, JEE Maths, JEE chemistry, JEE physics. In the last half an hour, attempt the easy questions that are left unattempted in any of the three subjects. and move to the difficult ones only after completing all the easy questions.
Why should you not attempt the JEE paper in one round of 3 hours, starting from the first question: If you start attemping JEE mains from the first question, attempting every question irrespective of its difficulty level, you might end up without answering a few very easy questions in the last page. hence it is best to attempt in 2 rounds.
We suggest you to download a mock test of JEE mains, take a printout and attempt a timed test at your home. The next day, analyse the question paper based on the previous day’s attempt, thereby practising the above strategy to attempt JEE Mains.
We advise you to mark a tick quickly beside the answer you have chosen in the JEE main question paper itself. This will help you later to identify which questions/answers you have attempted and what all are left. the few seconds that get lost in the exam are not wrongly spent, so there is nothing to worry about it.
It is wise not to spend a lot of time in answering a difficult questions in the first 2.5 hours of JEE main. instead just put a mark beside it, so that you know you should attempt it in the end if time permits and move on to the next question. Never postpone marking of answer towards the end of JEE main examination. This is very very important. mark each answer immediately after you find the answer, don’t postpone it such that you will mark all the answers at the end. as, you will tend to make more mistakes during the end of JEE main exam due to stress. We advise you to revise all the concepts learnt so far and practice one or two JEE Main mock tests now, rather than starting to learn new concepts that you have not learnt so far. www.myengg.com wishes you all the best in the attempting JEE Main 2013!
