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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
