Post Re: IIT JEE toppers interviews and tips
Here are some more tips from another great guy

this is where i have copied this article from : http://earnindollar-vob.blogspot.com/20 ... e-iit.html

1.First and most important is to have confidence in yourself. Don’t lose that confidence
while preparing for the entrance exams even if you are not doing well in the coaching
classes.

2.Having mentioned about coaching classes, I would say they play an important role in
helping you crack the exam. The simple reason being continued guidance throughout the
year and perpetual tests that keep you in touch with the course all the time. Hence, it is
important to be regular in them to be able to achieve good results in the long run.

3.When at home prepare a time table and follow it strictly. Don’t ignore it. Don't get too
involved with only engineering books keeping NCERT books aside. With the new IITJEE
pattern, a lot of questions are directly made from there which you might have already
seen yourself by analyzing this year’s paper.

4.Don’t waste time and don’t stress yourself. Study in a balanced way and maintain a
good friend circle who will guide you at time when you are at sea and thus boost your
morale.

5.This one is for toppers! Don’t get complacent. Many good rankers in coaching institutes
get complacent if they get good marks which is bad as they lose out to lower rankers in
the end.

6.To crack entrance examination papers it is very very important to be able to solve the
paper completely. You might know all the questions but not been able to solve them is
equivalent to not knowing them. So the golden rule is practice a lot of sample papers
and during the exams hours not to waste time on a single question.

7.Stay away from computers as much as possible! This is a major distraction from
students from towns and cities as you don’t get to know how quickly time is slipping out
of your hands along with straining your eyes and body which makes you dizzy and you
are off to sleep!

8.Choosing the right books for entrance exams is very important. Consult IITians and
your teachers about them to make sure that you get your hands on the right ones and
don’t waste your time in trying out new books every time.

Last but very important point is not to get nervous while appearing for the exam.This will
get your hands and brain move faster, quicker and better than those who are nervous!
These are my ten golden rules which if followed strictly will definitely help you crack the
JEE paper with flying colors.

Most people think that IIT JEE is a very difficult examination. However, JEE is totally a
different examination. One thing certain is IITJEE requires a very systematic preparation.
Earlier you start preparing for it the better.JEE defers from conventional board exams in
one major way. JEE tests your fundamentals of the subject and your ability to think
logically and analytically.

To begin with, you must arrange for professional guidance, if you do not have one
available at home. Secondly, practice of solving JEE level problems being of paramount
importance, you must have access to enough recommended books / notes.

(1) Join a reliable postal / classroom coaching.
(2) Collect old postal coaching material from students who have appeared for JEE before.
(3) Buy or have access to various reference books for the subjects. (Lists are available on
the world wide web.)

Getting yourself motivated but keeping up the tempo is not easy. Load of CBSE /BOARD
Syllabus and JEE together can be very tough. So, if you are ready to burst your butts,
read a lot about IITs, understand why you want to be in IIT and prepare for systematic
preparations for it.

I would recommend you should start preparing for JEE, immediately after Xth, if you
have not started earlier!

The IITJEE is the Joint Entrance Examination conducted by the IITs for admission in the
six IITs , ITBHU and ISM Dhanbad.

The IITJEE is aimed at selecting the best candidates from the country .It is considered
the most competitive examination after 12th standard. About 2.5 % of the total students,
appearing, are able to get through (entry ratio is even less than that of Stanford
University!).

The general norm is that the JEE is a difficult examination and the questions are complex
and tough. This is not true. It is merely a different exam. It examines your basic
concepts, logical aspects and your ability to apply fundamentals to multi-conceptual
problems. All it requires is a proper examination temperament and different approach to
the subject than most of the other exams. Added to this, it also tests your ability to work
efficiently without getting pressures in. It is also a test of your psychology. To solve the
typical JEE like problems you have to think in many dimensions.

However, The question papers of JEE are most involved as compared to any other similar
competitive examination. The process of formation of JEE paper is pretty complex.
Questions are invited from various professors from different IITs. From this list, few
questions are finalized, so the professor himself doesn’t know whether his question is
selected or not. All the possible solutions of questions are also made. The results is
declared in about 20 days from the day of examination.

To have optimum success & avoid failing one has to develop excellent examination
temperament besides knowledge of the subject and problem solving skills.
What is needed for the IIT-JEE is :

An analytical mind and planned strategic approach.
Students with high IQ level can extract the information from the teacher even in a large
group, plethora of books and study material available. Other students get confused due
to flood of information and study material. One needs to have a definite plan with well
defined aids and sources of information to produce optimum results. Students normally
neglect Chemistry which is most scoring and do not pursue Physics in a systematic way.
Preparing Physics for the JEE needs more attention besides acquiring highly polished
analytical skills.

Hard work is indispensable for JEE. If you are intelligent,that's good but intelligence
alone is NOT going to get you in IIT. I have seen many people who are very intelligent
and because of their intelligence they overestimate themselves and study less and end
up getting a low rank in JEE or even don't qualify. But I am not saying that any hard
working person can make it to IIT. You need a certain degree of caliber but the main
point is YOU need not be a genius.

The second most important requirement is guidance. Hard work is the bow, intelligence
is the arrow and guidance gives you the direction of target. Then only your arrow will hit
the right target(IITJEE).

Third thing is motivation. Nobody can force you to study for IITJEE. To work hard, you
need a lot of motivation. Most (almost all) of the top rankers study for the whole two
years single heartedly for JEE. For these 2 years they leave all their comforts for JEE.For
two years you should dream,sleep and eat JEE and nothing else.Leave aside your
girlfriend(if you have one) and all your summer weather friends from whom you get gain
nothing.

The fourth thing is Temperament. Temperament plays a vital role for success at IIT-JEE.
Nervousness can decrease performance to such an extend that a student who expects to
get a top rank in JEE,even fail to qualify. Solving full papers, preferably in exam
atmosphere can improve your temperament. Test series offered by some classes could
be of help. If you do not have access to such series, try solving old papers with alarm set
and correct it from solutions available.

Here is another set:


INTERVIEW WITH ANOTHER IITian

``Today competition is very hard``--I have heard people saying so.Are they true . I
don't think so. When i think honestly over it i found competition is not really tough these
days, but the no. of competitors is large , that is other thing weather they are able for it
or not.

Friends! Today i want to share my experiences with you. When i was a school going
student and i too had the penchant to crack IITJEE. That was not my aim of life but it
was one of the stopping station of my journey, the stoppage of my journey to the
corporate world.We use to waste our precious time and energy pondering over how to
prepare for IIT and what should be the right strategy for it. This is really not the rule .
Whatever be the rule,we should have full dedication towards our goal. But you may
change in ur strategy as ur experience increases. So just go and make a routine to study
and really hard.

We go on a very simple thinking that ` `today the condition is not in my side, i will do
that very thing tomorrow``. Tomorrow goes on tomorrow and tomorrow and so on so
on ..........! And one day we have to face our exams and we get depressed, is not it?
We create problems 4 ours. MOST OF THE PEOPLE REALLY WANT TO GET SUCCESS.
BUT THEY DON`T WANT TO WORK OR SPENT THEIR TIME. EDUCATION MEANS--THE
PROGRAMME IN WHICH WE WASTE 1/4TH OF OUR LIFE TO KNOW THAT HOW TO
WASTE OUR 3/4TH LIFE.

Remember everyone have only 12 hrs to work , but in this 12 hrs one is BILL GATES
and one is working under him. Well, i would like to tell everybody one thing that is
extremely important to know while preparing for the IITs, and that is, if u think u r
extremely good at school then it does not necessarily mean u r intelligent or brainy and
end up having high hopes that u can get into any one of the IITs.

The reason is very simple, at school u don't need brains to do well in your exams, u need
lots of memory and hours of hardcore mugging! But at a place like IIT - JEE, its insane
to even think u can mug cos the syllabus is designed for people who can think! I have
seen people who have scored around 65% - 70% in their boards, but end up with very
good IIT - JEE ranks at the end. So now I hope u can differentiate between true
intelligence and true mug - pots? According to me no bloody school exam can ever judge
the true intelligence of a student, but at IIT it shows it all! At school all of us mug our
heads off and the better the mugging the more intelligent we all seem to the teachers
and parents eyes!

True intelligence can be found and discovered only at the IIT - JEE, so why not prove
yourself there, rather than waste time mugging and falling under the illusion that u r
intelligent,etc after seeing your class scores!

IIT is always a word which raises a energy through the body. But to achieve it you have
to drain out the entire energy out of your body. Preparing for IIT is not a week or month
job. It needs years of effort. From 11th onwards the whole, energy as to be squeezed
out.

A proper organization is always the primary task for all preparation.

1. Make yourself a week plan and a month plan before you work. Never put down all
your time in studies. Efficiency is the primary target. Divide the day into 4 - 6 sections of
2-3 hours. For every successful period take a 15-30 minutes reward. It boosts your
energy.
2. Regular exercise is always a must. Allocate about 30 minutes of the day for this.
You can choose exercise time.
3. Study a subject continuously for a long period. Each time you change the subject you
lose a lot of time. (Transition time is a lot on thinking)
4. Crash your leisure programmes.
5. Write in black n white the portions covered and try to match it with the plan.
6. A sleep of 3.5 hr is a must!!!!
7. During the Hike of tension cool yourself by meditating or by just running around!!
Studying Methods


1. Regularly solve model papers and keep checking the time. This enhances confidence
and shows the pons and cons of ur studies.
2. Be up to date. All HWs must be done in time.
3. Make yourself comprehensive notes and small sketches. (Make them attractive)
4. Be perfect in solving maths problems. Never make a situation that will make u revise
back through it. The best way I adopted was from my teacher. Enjoy Math’s and do it
when you are totally freaked out. On doing problems during freaking Time you initially
tend to make mistakes. But this soon will be a boon when you get freaked out during
exams. You will be ready to move through even when u r freaked. ( this was my success
key for 100 in math’s exams.)
5. Be prepared with all type of questions.
6. Go through guides daily. In the last moment u won't be able to do it.


Last Sec Tips
1. Never start studying during the last month.
2. Keep covering pages at a fast pace
3. Question yourself where you feel you are doubtful.
4. Never leave calculations. Keep doing always. Once you stop your marks stops!!
5. Have confidence ,maintain cool. Never let tension eat you u up. Ask the parents to
keep an eye on you always. Otherwise you may not be studying always. Be motivated,
encouraged and struggle. It is after all not a miserable fight.
Here goes one more article for SUCCESSFULL PREPARATION FOR IIT JEE. If you are
sure the way you are preparing then DONT READ BEYOND THIS. But if you think you
need guidance then just read this and ponder over it for a while and then set into action
right away.


Let me 1st tell you something about myself. I was preparing for IIT JEE 2008 for the
past one and a half year. And during this period I’ve observed that the only thing
required for a meaningful preparation is to have a BURNING DESIRE to excel. This is
fortunately the only requirement or eligibility, what ever you call it. And believe me this is
not easy. In today’s world there are so many other IMPORTANT things, like Surfing the
Net, Dating, Music, Movies, Food. Keep your Eyes SHUT for them. Wear blinkers to the
outside world if required. Guests, who are well wisher of yours, would never expect you
to come and socialize with them when ever they visit your place. I Hate GUESTS. But I
would rather feel the world better without them.
Good Planning is a great virtue. From This Date, only 8 months are left. Leave 2months
for revision and Self assessment TESTS. So you have at the most 6 months for
preparation. If you haven’t started yet, this is high time 4 you to do so. Don’t worry.
Believe in yourself. Daily study for 12 hrs (Sincerely) and you get through it. Concentrate
only on the Basics. Though I strongly believe to study from books according to my power
of perception and understanding, at least from my average level of brain, I can suggest
you the following books if you share the same understanding power.
Don’t pray to God to get you through the gateway of IITJEE, pray only to help you to
keep the desire to excel burning within you , pray not to let your mind deviate from the
path you’ve once decided. Rest,your hard work will make you achieve your cherished
ambition and you be privileged to be called with those wonderful words i.e. IITian.

Post Re: IIT JEE toppers interviews and tips

Hello Friends...

V Prashant the Person who scored All India Rank 5, 8 in IIT JEE and AIEEE Respectively the topper to share his ideas with our IIT JEE and AIEEE Aspirants in an interview.

* How did you prepare for IIT-JEE? When did you start ?

I had started my preparation seriously for the exam from 11th class, but I began attending IIT JEE Preparatory classes at the institute FIIT-JEE from class 9th. I didn’t took seriously at that stage attending the classes once or twice in a week shows my negligence at that time. But from 11th I joined in a local coaching center 2 – 3 times in a week and attending Sunday classes at the FIIT-JEE Institute.

*Can u Tell us about your study schedule ?

Normally the coaching classes took lot of time and I could study only a little after reaching home from the institute in evening. If I had an opportunity to study my own I would have allotted another 2 hours for my preparation. I hadn’t followed any particular strategy but followed the basic rule that “studying which I feel difficult”. I am not interested in chemistry so I focused on the Physics and Mathematics first and go on practicing at one instant I found that I can do maths and physics then I started preparing chemistry.

* Did you attempt any test series also ?

I had attempted FIIT JEE Test series, I think it helped me a lot and I found it very useful because it gives u a fell that you are writing the National level entrance exam as lots of students enroll for this and this had given me the experience that is useful to regulate my stress at every instant on the Exam.

* How was your performance in the mock tests ?

Yeah. Mock test had also played a prominent role in my success, I have been performing very consistently in the mock test nearly 96 %. Though I am not one of the toppers in those test I just focused on the drawbacks of my performance anf tried to improve them and I am successful in doing that I had worked hard for that. I always score well in Physics and Mathematics .But my performance was not so good in Chemistry

* So how did you work towards your Mathematics and Chemistry score ?

For Maths one must have more problem solving techniques that teaches you how to approach the problem and I got this only from experience. Chemistry was always a little bit tough for me, so I just kept reading up. That helped me a lot remembering a lot of things like equations, properties of elements etc. I would keep on studying and forgetting everything. So I just focused on revising again and again.

* Is Chemistry all about mugging up information ?

No. I can’t understand the logic behind the equations but on revising a lot things started being clearer to me and I could do it then.

* Which school did you study in? is it CBSE or State Syllabus ?

I hadn’t studied in CBSE school but I preferred to join but not possible. I have preferred CBSE Pattern for my preparations as it is application oriented .

* How did you balance between board exams and the IIT-JEE ?

I strongly believe that IIT JEE is a superset of all the board exams portions. I focused on my board exams first and after writing the board exams I just focused on IIT JEE Preparation, behalf of this I have been attending the classes from the Coaching institutes, but the other subjects like English and computer science I had payed some attention for getting prepared. I am successful in doing that.

* What is your long-term career goal ? And what do you think you would have done if you did not crack IIT-JEE ?

I want to get into research, which means I will be pursuing a Master's degree after graduation and then a PhD. I plan to do research either in the field of Computer Science or Physics. If I did not clear IIT-JEE, I would have taken admission in whichever college I got, through AIEEE. But I would not have appeared for IIT-JEE again. I would like to convey to all the students who are appearing for IIT-JEE that this exam is not everything in life. I know people who get so down if they don't crack JEE, I think they take JEE too seriously!

* Do you have a role model ?
I was inspired by the former President APJ Abdul Kalam. I admire him not only for his professional achievements but also for his character, the way he was with his co-workers etc. I think that is why he is one of the most respected people in the country today. I have read his book Wings of Fire and was quite inspired by how he started his life from a fisherman's home and how much he achieved.

* Who do you attribute your success to ?
My parents. They never pressurized me into studying. This helped me a lot in my preparation.

* ALL THE BEST *

Malladi Hari Krishna
All India 1st rank
GATE – 2010

Malladi Hari Krishna, pursuing B.Tech. 4th year in CVSR college of engineering. He was a not-so-sharp student in school and college. But he always tried to give his best performance in the class. The main reasons for his success are his passion and determination. He loves computer science and he has a very strong will to achieve the pinnacle of success. With his immense passion and hardwork he won the race and he got the top rank in GATE 2010.

I was a not-so-sharp student in school and in inter also. I did my schooling at Little Flower High School, Abids, passing SSC with 87%. And my intermediate at Delta Junior college with 82.4%. and B.Tech. at CVSR college of engineering, Hyderabad. I’m still in my final year at CVSR. I started my preparation since day 1 of my 1st year. IISc was my childhood dream. I inspired myself to do this. I even look at bio graphies of great men for inspiration. The preparation was very enjoyable to me, as I found immense passion in it. Hence the question of stress doesn’t arise. My life goal is to become a scientist and to serve India and to uplift the masses in India.

GATE preparation:
When I started my preparation, I only aimed to give it my best shot, with no stress on the rank. I spared no expense in efforts, to master the subjects covered in the syllabus. I just made sure that I had nothing lacking on my part. The main reasons for my success are my PASSION and DETERMINATION. I simply love computer science and I have a very strong will to achieve the pinnacle of success. Hence, it’s only obvious that I won the race.

Revision:
I completed the syllabus in December and I took January and half of February to complete my revision. I revised twice, the entire syllabus. I felt that DBMS was going over my head. And I felt all others as relatively easy and manageable.

2 months before GATE:
The last 2 months were totally devoted towards making myself faster and ever more efficient. I reduced my silly mistakes and increased my speed and accuracy. By then the entire syllabus had been done. So the focus was on speed and efficiency. I just gave it my maximum efforts. Hence, I expected a good rank. I didn’t expect first rank, ofcourse!!

Books: I followed only the standard text books.

My methodology:
I didn’t try to master the most asked topics or the easiest ones. I just mastered the whole unified subject as one thing. That gave me the incredible feel of things and the confidence that I can solve any problem if I made no silly mistakes.

Suggestion to GATE aspirants:
I’d like GATE aspirants to take up GATE preparation only if they are thorough fanatics and are ready to do extensive research work. Because, only with immense passion, is it possible to get the top ranks in GATE.
