Post Re: IIT JEE Tips and Strategies from Experts
Hey friends..

Basically the exam is based on concepts and more importance is given to the application of those concepts. It is observed from the last few years that instead of asking lengthy questions with tedious calculations, short questions with easier calculations are being asked, which are more powerful in testing the concepts. For more tips and Strategies : IIT JEE Tips and Strategies and Discussions : viewforum.php?f=19

IIT Join Entrance Examination :

Current Topics and backlogs:

Never do any sort of test oriented studies at the cost of current topics as it leads to backlogs which are virtually unrecoverable. Revise the lectures regularly after coming back from your coaching classes.

Don’t rush after materials:

It is not a game to see who has solved how many questions. It is better to solve one material completely rather than scanning through five books and not finishing a single one. The simple reason is that the questions in different books are repetitive. Making proper grip on one material is sufficient.

Negative marking:

Questions are designed with close options and are such that you tend to mark the wrong option. If you have a doubt then no need to attempt the question. Even AIR 1 does not attempt the entire paper correctly. So select the questions you are sure of getting right

Shortcuts and Substitutions:

Shortcuts, substitutions, option elimination and other such strategies generally work more in coaching papers and sample papers than in JEE. I am not saying that these strategies do not work in JEE but during those 6 hours of tension, most people don’t have the courage to risk their life (or at least it fells so) by such methods as it may give a wrong answer wherein you may miss out on an exception related case. Substitution should be avoided when practicing questions at home and must be used only in exams when you can use it as a shortcut.

Paper Stratergy:

On the JEE day, if the paper is of you type, then it doesnt matter much, but if the paper pattern has a major change or so, then the one without a proper exam algo may spoil his rank. Its important to pre allot time for each section (don’t give more than 50 minutes to chemistry under any case) and leave the section once your alloted time for that section is over. It is also advisable to fix the order in which you attempt the sections which must not depend on the order in which the sections are presented in the paper. The algo which you plan during your preparation days must be followed throughout your coaching and on the exam day also. DO NOT DEVIATE FROM YOUR ALGO even if one particular section comes out to be tougher than the others.

On the JEE day:

Do not interact much with friends as it may lead to depression. Do not discuss the first paper betweeen the two papers. Stay calm.

These tips are based on what I have been doing for my preparation. Just stick to your also. Remember : JEE paper is simple if you follow the basics

Subject – wise Tips for the Aspirants appearing JEE :

Physics: The questions are generally not very tough. This is one section where solving more of subjective questions can help as it helps to strengthen the fundamentals. Apart from thatsubstituting trivial cases (like weight = 0, mass = infinite etc) helps a lot to solve questions in mechanics

Chemistry: Patience is the key to success here. Read the questions very carefully as most of the negative marking happens here. In organic try to solve questions by writing down full mechanism to avoid errors. There is no need to solve hi-fi materials like Morrisson, JD Lee and Atkins if you are not thorough with NCERT. JEE chemisrty is not tough. Stick to what you know and your paper will be ‘All izz well’. Making topic wise notes proves to be very helpful in the end.

Maths: Make sure you don’t miss out on the conditions mentioned in the questions ( such as under root x is equal to mod x and not always equal to x etc, or a case where the value you substitute may not satisfy the domain of the given function and so on). Graphical approach based questions on determining number of solutions to equations are very commonly asked since the past few years.

Tips and Strategies to be Followed for Revising the Syllabus :

No need for hi-fi material: at least not in the end. Practice only those questions which have difficulty level similar to JEE. Read the notes you have made: As it will help you to recall those formulaes and concepts that are not commonly used.

Analyse your solved papers: It helps to correct your mistake. It is very important to devote time to analyse the papers after solving them to correct your silly mistakes
Sufficient revision tests: Practicing tests helps to analyse your relative scoring compared to others and once you keep giving tests you get accustomed to you paper stratergy and be able to finish your paper on time.

Previous year JEE papers: It is advisable to solve previous year papers of JEE during the time of revision as these are the perfect kind of questions for revision. don’t solve these questions when you are learning a new topic. Do only when you are doing your final rounds of revision
Do not solve any new material few weeks before the exam. Just revise what you know.

Is your Aim to get seat in IITs ? Are u focusing on a good rank in IIT JEE ? Get Prepared.. The time has come. Put pull stop for the enjoyments and focus on your preparation. The Preparation strategies should be changed now as the time for the IIT JEE has come Nearer. What you guys will prepare here after is the main thing. Here is the IIT JEE New Schedule and some Tips for the Self Study Guidance..

I can, I love to, I want to, I will, I must should be the Primary Aptitude of the Future IITians aspiring a seat in IITs. Basically there are nearly 4 lakhs competitors in this exam and so one must work much harder to over come the Competition. Not only command on the subject, The students should improve their confidence levels. One should work on the IIT JEE Preparation with the same dedication from the 1st year onwards. As the IIT JEE 2011 Schedule has been released the Preparation strategies and the tips for the Aspirants from the Experts based on the Subjects is given here : viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2197&start=20

Positive Attitude : Stay focussed and maintain a positive attitude

Set a timetable: Ensure that you equally divide the time you are left with for different subjects. Also consider that you have to divide time between subjects on which you have a strong hold on and subjects that you need more revision. IIT JEE 2011 Full fledged Time Table For the IIT Aspirants : http://www.myengg.com/engg/info/5157/ii ... aspirants/

Practice test papers: Take up reputed full lenght mock-test series, which will expose you to the different types of questions that come in the examination, making you more confident and also help you develop speed. IIT JEE Practice Tests : http://www.myengg.com/engg/info/1841/ii ... ice-tests/

Learn from your mistakes: Taking mock tests will help you to know your strengths and weaknesses. It is important to take proper feedback from the solutions provided on how you could have performed better. Here are some Tips for the IIT JEE Aspirants :

Don’t try to study new concepts, this may lead to confusion and high stress

Don’t overstress yourself. You must sleep for five to six hours of every night, especially three-four days before IIT-JEE to keep yourself physically and mentally fit. While short naps may help to regain freshness, avoid over-sleeping during the day.

By this time you should have practiced and formulated a strategy as to how you are going to attempt the JEE papers. However, it is advisable that you should not spend more than one hour on any subject. Usually, mathematics needs more time, we suggest that you start with physics and chemistry papers first keeping in mind the one hour limit and then attempt mathematics.

Finally, Remember IIT JEE is quality of time spent and not the quantity alone. Any Queries : viewforum.php?f=19

Hey Friends...

Indian Institute of Teleology Joint Entrance Examination (lIT JEE) is one of the toughest and challenging of the Engineering Entrance exams in the country. Probably the world has proved that lIT has not lost it’s charm at all and has retained it’s glory as ever . There are just few thousands seats are available in all lIT s. But lakhs of students compete for them. lIT JEE is conducted once in a year. This year the exam will be held on 10th April, 2011.

Paper 1 : 9:00 to 12: 00 hrs
Paper 2: 14:00 to 17: 00 hrs.

To seat seat in lIT s one should prepare well and hone their skills. Students should understand the pattern of exam and should be well aware of what type of questions are asked in the exam.

Exam Pattern:
• There will be two question papers, each of three hours duration. Both the question papers will consists of three separate sections on Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics.
• The pattern of exam will be objective type.
• The exam is designed to test the comprehension, reasoning, and analytical ability of the candidates.
• A candidate can opt for question papers either in English or Hindi.
• In some of the sections incorrect answers may be awarded negative marks.

Paper 1 – Analysis :
Paper 1 has 84 questions in total – in the order of Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. Each subject had 28 questions and the pattern was exactly the same for all the subjects. All questions carried 3 marks. Hence the maximum mark for the paper is 252.

Part 2 – Mathematics
Mathematics part of the 2010 lIT JEE paper 1 was a lengthy paper compared to that of2009. In depth Understanding of the concepts with perseverance in solving problems would help the students to approach the paper . Trigonometry had a good representation in the paper and passage on matrices required proper innovative thinking to interpret and solve the questions. The integer type questions were difficult to crack in the given time frame. As shown below

Paper 1 was a difficult paper requiring more time to crack the questions. Algebra and Coordinate geometry had the major share with Calculus, Trigonometry and Vectors just following close. Topic wise analysis is given below.

Image

Paper 2 :
Paper 1 had 57 questions in total in the order of Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. Each subject had 19 questions and as in paper 1 the pattern was exactly the same across the subjects. But questions had differential markings, each subject had 79 marks and the maximum mark for the paper is 237.

What was new in IIT -JEE 2010 in comparison with earlier years – Paper 2:
• Single Correct Choice questions were valued heavier than before – 5 marks for a correct answer with (-2) for an incorrect answers.

Part 2 – Mathematics :
Paper 2 Mathematics part was easier than the first paper for two reasons – number of questions were notably lower and only half the number of Integer type questions were there. Matrix type question on Complex numbers had tricky options given in second column that only a meticulous eye will find. An excellent knowledge of analysis was checked by the paragraph type questions on the cubic polynomial. The integer type questions were easier than that in first paper.

But lakhs of students compete for them. lIT JEE is conducted once in a year. This year the exam will be held on 10th April, 2011.

Days before IIT-JEE
* Scan all the topics in a stipulated time frame
* Work backwards to plan your schedule for revision
* Start concentrating on the topics that you have covered rather than wasting time on new topics
* Revise and revise all important concepts and formulae. Even if you have studied 70 per cent of the syllabus thoroughly, do not harbour negative thoughts
Caution – The IIT-JEE test may carry negative marking for wrong answer. So take calculated risk of guessing

Master time management skills
* Divide the total time into components based on total number of questions and your conceptual knowledge
* Gauge if you would be able to solve the question or not. Avoid taking risk if the probability of committing mistake is high
* Revise Previous year question papers and model test papers

A day before IIT-JEE
* Quick revision of your formulae and short notes. Do not read new topics just before the examination
* Organize yourself. Use this checklist admit card (please read the overleaf instructions thoroughly), two pencils (sharpened at both ends), an eraser, a sharpener, wrist watch, one blue lead pen and other related stationeries
* Take sound sleep of at least 6-8 hours before the examination

The Day on which IIT-JEE is Conducted

* Wake up early in the morning
* Eat a light meal
* Reach the test center at least half an hour before the exam.
* If your examination center is in another city reach their the day before the exam
* Ensure the place you stay is calm and clean
* Never go to the center on an empty stomach. Keep snacks handy. Keep relevant medicine handy. Carry water/ glucose for instant energy

During IIT-JEE

* Keep your permission letter on your table
* Re-check your stationeries
* Synchronize your wristwatch with the center clock, read instructions quickly
* Fill the information sheet Clarify even the simplest doubt
* Caution Do not use a red pen or pen where data to be filled with pencil only
* Give all three subjects equal time (50 minutes each)
* Use the diagram or value of constants given in the paper in solving a numerical. If the value is not mentioned, use the one you remember
* Carry out all rough work only in the space provided
* It is better to solve slightly fewer questions faultlessly
* While attempting questions, segregate them by the 7, m, 4 method
* If you don’t know these questions do not waste time attempting them
* While attempting the answers, do not shade the answer key immediately. Instead, tick your response with a pencil on the answer paper
* Keep marking questions with7,m, 4 in the first round of solving the paper. All questions should be segregated into one of these three categories. This saves valuable time later
* Fill out the answer key 30 minutes before final time. Fill out the responses to questions attempted after this directly in the answer key

Dos & Don’ts :
* Do not get de-motivated or overexcited with the question paper. Do not be depressed by tough questions
* Do not get emotionally attached to any question. It is not necessary that you will be able to solve a question from topics you have prepared well
* Do not argue with anyone

Hey friends....

IIT JEE Physics – Pattern, Analysis, Review of IIT JEE 2010, Difficulty Level of the Papers & Marking Scheme :

Indian Institute of Teleology Joint Entrance Examination (lIT JEE) is one of the toughest and challenging of the Engineering Entrance exams in the country. Probably the world has proved that lIT has not lost it’s charm at all and has retained it’s glory as ever . There are just few thousands seats are available in all lIT s. But lakhs of students compete for them. lIT JEE is conducted once in a year. This year the exam will be held on 10th April, 2011.

Analysis :
The specialty of IIT-JEE Physics paper is that the questions are original and unique in their context, solving them often requires a combination of concepts from different chapters. The knowledge of basic concepts of all chapters is must for getting good score in IIT-JEE examination.

Pattern :
The important aspect of IIT-JEE is change of pattern of exam. Change of pattern of exam is very important to select the good talent. Over the last 3 years different patterns of questions have appeared in IIT-JEE, and different patterns of questions have carried different marks too. The pattern may be slightly different in the two papers Paper-l and Paper-2.

• In IIT -JEE 2007, there was a change in exam pattern. Assertion and Reasoning based questions were introduced in place of subjective type questions (fill in the box type). There was no change of pattern in 2008 exam but there were major changes in IIT-JEE 2009 paper. For e.g. Subjective type questions were introduced again. There were 8 subjective questions in Paper-II. After long time “more than one choice correct” type of questions with negative marking were introduced. This will eliminate students who do guess work in the paper.
• The pattern of paper was different in terms Of Number of questions in Paper I as compared to IIT-JEE 2009, with a little change in questions from different sections.
• Physics paper of 2010 was easier than 2009 in terms of lengthiness and difficulty level. In certain questions you just had to see the direction vector. There was no exceptionally difficult problem in the paper.

IIT-JEE 2010 Review

What was new in IIT -JEE 201 0 – Paper 1 :
o In the paragraph type 2 passages were there of which one passage had 3 questions and the other had 2 questions. Earlier all passages used to have the same Number of questions.
o Likewise partial marks are awarded for correct answers in MCQ questions.
o There were NO negative marks for the integer type questions and for the Multiple correct choice type. Overall difficulty level of paper was moderate. S till there were a few questions involving elaborate mathematical calculations making them difficult. Representation from modem physics was limited to a single question. Major focus in this paper was on Electricity and Magnetism (for a total marks of 27). A large Number of questions was meant for testing fundamental conceptual clarity.

What was new in IIT -JEE 2010 – Paper 2
• Single Correct Choice questions were valued heavier than before 5 marks for a correct answer with (-2) for an incorrect answers.

Image


Difficulty analysis Paper 1:
The difficulty of question paper varies from year to year. IIT-JEE 2010 Physics paper was not so easy not so difficult. It is moderate. In Paper-I around 15% – Difficult, 14% – Easy, 71 % – Medium.

Difficulty analysis Paper 2:
The difficulty level of this paper was almost same as the first one. But the distribution (area wise) was balanced. Compared to the first paper, mathematical calculations involved in this paper was really tedious; particularly for paragraph based questions. Matrix Matches type questions in this paper was moderately difficult, and students must have definitely answered these two questions.

o Electricity and Electromagnetism together constitute almost I/3rd of total marks and must concentrate on these topics. These topics are relatively easy compared to Mechanics.

o The next important topic is Mechanics. In this, the favorite topics seem to be Rigid body rotation, and Motion on a Plane. It is important to realize that Mechanics though important, takes relatively more time for preparation. They should restrict their preparation of Mechanics and concentrate on next important topics “Modern Physics” and “Thermal Physics” These topics can be covered thoroughly in a relatively less time.

o ‘Ray Optics’ and ‘Physical Optics’ together contributes approximately 10 to 15%, with in Optics, it has been observed that problems on Young’s Double Slit Experiment (physical Op-tics) are more frequently asked. So students should concentrate on different aspects of Young’s Double Slit experiment. Mechanical waves and Sound has accounted for approximately around 10% of total marks; students should concentrate on wave motion also. Usually many students neglect chapters like Surface tension, Elasticity and Viscosity. Surprisingly last year lot of importance is given to these chapters. Finally, it is better refer basic concepts of all chapters included in JEE syllabus.

Marking Scheme:
Marking scheme and the number of questions are changing from time to time. The student must read the instructions and the marking scheme carefully before answering the paper.

What To do in last one week:
In the last one week it is better to revise basic concepts and formulae of all the three subjects. If possible it is better to write basic formulae on paper. Don’t study anything new, you can also go through last 2 to 3 three model exam papers that you have done and marking scheme applicable. But, be careful with the pattern of the paper may be different from the paper which you have already written. Do not panic, and try to Understand the new pattern .

On the Examination Day : Do’s
* Read the instructions given for every type of question. First 5 to 6 minutes go through complete paper.
* In the first 11/2 hour, it is better allot half-an hour for each subject. After Paper-I, the only analysis that you should do is to Understand the pattern of the paper-I.
* Give more attention to subject in the Paper-2if you have not attempted that subject to your satisfaction in Paper-I.
* If you think a problem involves multiple steps, try to attempt in the end.

Don’ts :
* Don’t discuss any subject matter with anybody. You will feel little tension, it is quite natural. It is like tension in vibrating string. It vibrates and gives beautiful music only when tension exists within limits. If you apply tension beyond limits it may break. So little tension is quite normal don’t be panic.
* Don’t spend more than 11/2 hour on any single subject in any paper. That would hamper your chances with respect to subject wise cut offs.
* Don’t discuss the Paper-I with others.
* Relax two hours break.

Physics Preparation Tips
• More important should be given to Mechanics and Electromagnetism but don’t forget the Modern Physics.
• Modem Physics helps score high marks. A student is required to study dual nature of matter and Radiation, Atom, X-rays and Nucleus. In dual nature of matter , de-Broglie wavelength in terms of momentum I Kinetic energy I accelerating potential I thermodynamic gas temperature in case of gas molecules.
• In 2009 problems were based on photoelectric effect and de-Broglie wavelength. In 2010 problems were based on application of quantization principle to a diatomic gas molecule. We can expect problems on Bohr’s model for hydrogenic atoms. Understanding of hydrogen and positronium using concept of reduced mass are particularly important.
• In X-rays, you should study characteristic X-rays continuous X-rays, Moseley’s law calculation of minimum wavelength.
• In Nuclear Physics, must concentrate on Half life, decay equations, finding Q value in nuclear transformations using mass defect, Binding energy curve, calculation of K.E. of daughter nuclei in nuclear disintegration.
• In Thermodynamics & Modem Physics, some topics being common to both physics and chemistry, it is better to go through these topics keeping both Physics and Chemistry syllabus in mind.
• In Optics, Wave Optics may be covered first as the content is less compared to geometrical optics.
• Of Waves, transverse waves and sound waves have almost same weightage. Mathematical part involved in SH.M., Physical Optics, LC-oscillations & A.C. Circuits is useful in waves.
• An other common area is Gravitation, Electrostatics and Magnetism with same principles and applications by change of variables Coulomb’s law becomes Newton’s Gravitational Law. The analogue of Gauss’s Law can be used for evaluation of gravitational field. Electricity and Magnetism can be studied together.
• In Physics, usually questions connected to different chapters will be asked. It is suggested that take a basic principle and cover all topics where it can be applied. In Mechanics, most of the problems related to conservation Linear momentum, energy, angular momentum and Neutron’s second law. Similarly S.H.M. can be clubbed with many other chapters like
i) Oscillation of a floating body is S H.M.
ii) In Thermodynamics small oscillation of piston is S.H.M.
iii) A small negative charge at the centre of a positively charged ring will be S.H.M.
iv) In YDSE Source understanding S.H.M. may be linked to fringe width.

Hey friends....

Few days to go for the IIT JEE 2011 Exam and here are the Tips for the Aspirants... Wishing u all the Best

Indian Institute of Teleology Joint Entrance Examination (lIT JEE) is one of the toughest and challenging of the Engineering Entrance exams in the country. Probably the world has proved that lIT has not lost it’s charm at all and has retained it’s glory as ever . There are just few thousands seats are available in all lIT s. But lakhs of students compete for them. lIT JEE is conducted once in a year. This year the exam will be held on 10th April, 2011.

Source of the Article : http://www.myengg.com/engg/info/8866/ti ... amination/

The Day Before The Examination

• Be in a relaxed mood. You have done everything what is required for IITJEE and bound to do well.
• You are advised to revise important theoretical points which are difficult to remember.
• You need not revise the whole syllabus (practically impossible for any student to read the whole syllabus in a single day).
• You may concentrate only on those points which you are likely to forget without a revision just before the exam.
• Sleep well (at least 6 to 7 hours)

On The Day Of The Examination
At Home
• Don’t eat spicy or oily food. Consume much liquid in the form of water, fruit juices, and tender coconut water. Don’t eat too much. At the same time don’t starve.
• Start well in time so as to reach the exam hall at least 1 ½ hr before time don’t take this aspect lightly. As the Traffic jams are very common in cities
• Students who reach the exam hall in the last minute will enter the exam hall in a tense mood and cannot perform well.

At The Examination Center
• Don’t worry by seeing other students reading huge, voluminous, guides/study material which you have not studied. Don’t’ think that you have not read those books.
• Before entering the exam hall, ensure that you have not brought any papers other than your hall ticket in your pockets or purse or pencil pouch/box.
• Don’t carry mobile phones into the exam hall.

In The Examination Hall
• Enter the exam hall at the early moment.
• Don’t panic if the question paper is difficult. It will be equally difficult for others also. Those who maintain calm and composed attitude can score relatively better than others and will secure a better rank.
• Don’t get carried away if you find the paper too easy. It will be equally easy for others. A single mistake
can affect your rank by several hundreds when the paper is easy.
• Few minor changes in Assertion Reason questions may be initiated (Ex-A&R both are wrong) There fore you are advised to read all four options of Assertion Reason questions.
• Mark very difficult and time-consuming questions in each subject (encircle the Q.No of that question in the question paper). You may answer them at the end.
• Rough work should be done on the questi-on paper only but not on the OMR sheet.
• Do rough work for the questions properly in the space provided so that you may be able to cross check if necessary.
• Some people have the habit of marking all the answers first on the question paper and carry them on to the OMR only at the end. Sometimes such people fail to mark the answers on OMR due to shortage of time at the end. Therefore, such people are advised to carry the answer of all the questions of each subject on to the OMR just after they complete the respective subject. In the last subject, the answers may be marked on OMR one after the other.
• While answering questions which involve correct/incorrect, ascending/descending,true/false etc.,underline the key word (incorrect,descending,etc)so as to avoid mistakes.

Hey friends..

IIT JEE Chemistry Previous Years Analysis and Preparation Strategies to be Followed

IIT JEE exam is based on concepts and more important is their applications. It is observed from last few years that instead of asking lengthy questions with tedious calculations, short questions with easier calculations are being asked; which are more conceptual.

Reality…
• What ever is the level of preparation, doubt will always arise in your preparation strategy
• You may feel that the time left out is very less
• Your mind may go blank sometimes
• You always in need of a support.
• You may tend to think of the past

Remember
• Your success just not comes with your effort and practice, your mind set on the day makes a big difference.
• The IIT JEE is not only a test of a student’s preparation but also how well he can handle the pressure
• So tune up your mind with positive thoughts.
• Avoid friends who have negative mind set.
• Take a real JEE experience in your practice tests.
• Don’t compare yourself with others.
• Don’t get carried away by what others say

On analysing last few years results it was observed that chemistry is always the deciding subject for better rank and one has to put little more efforts in the subject. Here we will look at the best manner in which chemistry can be revised. Analysis of previous papers of IIT JEE, it is quite clear that chemistry is scoring subject in terms of time invested and marks obtained. The entire syllabus of chemistry is divided into three major units, namely physical & general chemistry, inorganic and organic chemistry. All these are equally important. This can be evidenced by analysing the last five years papers.

Chapter Wise Weightage
• The number in brocket indicates marks and outside number indicates number of questions

Let us have a glance of the syllabus in the order of priority.

Physical chemistry:
This part of chemistry is generally given more weightage. Physical chemistry chapters are not theoretical and memory based rather they are more conceptual and problem based. It is advisable to follow the given order of priority and emphasize on the topics mentioned in each chapter during your final revision.

Electro chemistry: Application of Nernst equation, batteries, relation between thermodynamic quantities & EMF and application of Kohlrausch law.
Ionic equilibrium: Solubility Product and factors influencing solubility of a sparingly soluble salt, hydrolysis of salts, buffer, indicator theory, and simultaneous equiliria based problems
Chemical kinetics: First order equation with its application, graph related problems and temperature
effect on rates of reactions.
Colligative properties: Mostly formula based problems will be asked on CP. Don’t forget to have a look in to Von’t Hoff factor.
Gaseous and solid state: Behavior of real gases, Vander waals equation, diffusion, Unit cell parameters (such as edge length in terms of radius, packing fraction, CN, density and types of voids), structure of ionic crystals and defects
Chemical bonding: Questions on chemical bonding find a place every year. It is absolutely necessary to prepare a table containing essential data to be used as a ready reckoned and a quick glance. Problems related with bond angles, dipole moment, geometries, molecular orbital theory and bond order calculation are needed to be revised.
Thermo chemistry and thermodynamics: entropy calculation and free energy calculation, Hess’s law applications, resonance energy calculation Revise all the formulae of physical chemistry, with their applications and short cut methods. It will help you to score faster in formula based questions. It is more advisable that now solve multi
conceptual problems. Also do not limit up your practice to only selected chapters, better solve miscellaneous type exercises which give exact simulation of examination.

Organic Chemistry :

This part also takes good weightage in chemistry paper. It is more conceptual and completely theoretical hence more attention has to be paid on this topic. Questions are more frequently asked from the following topics.

• Acid- base strengths and reaction intermediates
• Geometrical and optical isomerism
• Elimination reactions and Electrophilic addition reactions
• Electrophilic substitution reactions
• All named reactions from carbonyl compounds
• Phenols and diazonium salts
• Very basic information about Carbohydrates, amino acids and polymers

Try to confine to the topics and named reactions given in syllabus. This is not the time to read all the information given in text books. Mechanism of all the named reactions included in syllabus must be known thoroughly. Practice more problems based on chemical equations and problems involving identification of unknown compounds. Every year problems based upon identifying the compounds were asked.

Inorganic chemistry:
The weightage of inorganic is increased in the last two years papers and we can not ignore this section. The main chapters/topics which one should emphasize are
Coordination compounds: Geometrical isomerism, IUPAC nomenclature, VBT to predict the structure of coordination compounds as well as their magnetic behavior
Metallurgy: Make simple memory grids on ores and extraction procedures. This won’t take more than an hour to go through.
Chemistry of non metals: This is one of the most important areas where from 2 to 3 questions were
asked in previous exams. Try to concentrate on Occurrence and isolation of B, Si, N, P, S. Properties and structure of hydrides, halides, oxides and oxyacids.
Qualitative analysis: Confine to the analysis of ions given in syllabus. Try to list down as many reactions as possible for these ions, which indirectly enhance your strength in chemistry of elements.
Chemistry of metals: Finally you can have a look into the properties of Oxides, Hydroxides, Halides, Carbonates, Bicarbonates and sulphates of alkali and alkaline earth metals. The pattern of the IIT JEE paper has seen a major change in the last few years. The same subject with full coverage of the syllabus has to be answered in both the sessions of the examination on the same day.

The aim of a student is not to answer all the questions. An average student can aim at attempting 60% questions with 90% accuracy, and then a reasonably good rank is assured. Passages for comprehension-based questions are generally not adequate to give all the information needed to answer the questions that follow. Matrix matching type questions need particular attention as either you score full marks or you end up with a naught. Source of the Article : http://www.myengg.com/engg/info/8886/ii ... -followed/

Hey friends..

Few days to go for the IIT JEE 2011 Exam and here are the Tips for the Aspirants… Wishing u all the Best

Indian Institute of Teleology Joint Entrance Examination (lIT JEE) is one of the toughest and challenging of the Engineering Entrance exams in the country. Probably the world has proved that lIT has not lost it’s charm at all and has retained it’s glory as ever . There are just few thousands seats are available in all lIT s. But lakhs of students compete for them. lIT JEE is conducted once in a year. This year the exam will be held on 10th April, 2011.

The day before IIT JEE
• Let your intensity of studies come down in the later half of the day.
• Don’t study anything fresh after 2pm but don’t sleep.
• If possible go through small summary of inorganic. Even if you are not able to recollect, don’t discourage yourself.
• Be bold. You will come out successfully.
• Evening relax : may be you can watch TV/going to temple/prayers.
• Eat healthy food. This is not only for this day, start from today.
• Eat healthy breakfast : supplement with iron rich food (kellogs/palak)
• Take almonds : rich in omega 3 fatty acid.
• Drink lots of water
• Avoid oily and spicy food.
• You can check your centre location.

IIT JEE day…
• Ensure that you have taken the admit card plus the required stationeries.
• You should reach the test centre at least half an hour before the exam.
• Carry water bottle.
• Take it as a normal day as if you are going to write a practice test in your institute.
• Enter the examination hall in a positive mood to crack the test.
• Re-check your stationeries and synchronize your wristwatch with the center’s clock
• Fill up all the particulars carefully.
• If there is any mistake in your OMR, address to it immediately.

Tips for solving question paper

Don’t go to the exam hall with pre judicious mind for starting with a particular subject, always decide the subject after scanning the paper thoroughly as you may find some other subject more easier as compared to that you have decided earlier. After getting the paper scan the paper once and if you find any questions which could be solved very easily attempt them immediately, in this way you may save time for tough part of the question paper.

• Read instructions carefully
• Scan the problems immediately
• Make a rough estimate of easy, moderate and most difficult questions.
• Keep attempting the easy/scoring ones first.
• Don’t go for complicated calculation. Complicated calculation means wrong solution
• Single choice options are going to be mark fetching ones. Try to attempt as much as possible.
• Don’t take any guess work. Concentrate on one question at a time.
• Don’t be panic if others start attempting
• Never make any conclusion by looking at others.
• Don’t make any conclusions about the paper in the exam hall.
• Minimize the possibility of using eraser
• Never submit the paper before time. If you have some time in your hand, better to revise the solution
• Use the rough space wisely so that you can cross verify at any time.
• Use the value of constants given in the paper in solving a numerical. If the value is not mentioned, use the one you remember. Carry out all rough work only in the space given in the paper.
• Attempting to solve all questions in haste increases the chances of error. It is better to solve slightly fewer questions faultlessly.
• While attempting questions, go on segregating them by putting some identification mark. These questions are from topics that you have prepared.
• After the first exam, don’t discuss the paper with anyone. Try to understand the difference between facts and fiction.
• What ever you have done is good. Say to yourself before the 2nd paper that you are going to do this much better.
• Don’t take too much time on attempting a question. If some concepts are not at all known to you, immediately come out of it.

Success is yours

• Believe in basics
• Make a proper plan & execute with a cool pace of mind. Success is easy, keep it simple. www.myengg.com team wishes you a thumping VICTORY in IIT JEE’11 and source of the Article : http://www.myengg.com/engg/info/8888/ti ... -the-exam/

hey friends...

IIT-JEE, the most challenging of the Engineering Entrance exams in the country and probably the world has proved that it has not lost its charm at all and has retained its glory as ever. IIT-JEE 2011 was conducted on 10th April 2011 in 131 cities all over India in 1051 centers for 4,85,262 registered candidates. Paper 1 was from 9.00 – 12.00 hrs and paper 2 from 14.00 to 17.00 hrs.

There were 10 versions for IIT-JEE 2011 – 0 to 9. The order of subjects in both papers were the same : Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics but the total marks, the number of questions and types of questions in both papers were distinct from each other.

<strong>Paper 1 :</strong>
Paper1 had 69 questions in total for 240 marks - in the order of Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. Each subject had 23 questions and the pattern was exactly the same for all the Subjects.

What was new in IIT-JEE 2010 in comparison with earlier years – Paper 1:
* NO partial marks are awarded for correct answers in Multiple Correct Type questions. Last year there were partial marks.

Paper 2 :
Paper 2 had 60 questions in total - in the order of Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. Each subject had 20 questions and as in paper 1 the pattern was exactly the same across the subjects. Questions had differential markings, each subject had 80 marks and the maximum mark for the paper was 240
