Tips and Tricks for JEE Main 2020
Starting your studies without a direction is a waste of time. Equally crucial is a well-planned preparation strategy. Ensure that you follow the correct path and make the most of your precious time:
- First, avoid all kinds of distractions. You’ve got to put your phone down for your own good. Just focus on studying rather than what’s going on in Social Media.
- Pay more attention to class 11th concepts as the study material for class 12th would be fresher and more revised. (45% of the syllabus is from 11th and 55% from 12th)
- Try to do as many quality problems as possible to develop a good confidence level.
- Increase the frequency of taking mock tests to get familiar with exam pattern, time availability, speed, and accuracy.
- Revision is extremely important. Make sure that you are preparing revision notes for the important topics you learn or read.
- Spend more time in solving previous year question papers, preferably in the real test environment.
- Focus on the weaker sections to identify areas of improvement for efficient JEE preparation.
- While studying, make sure you are spending quality time. The focussed and dedicated attitude of one hour is more worth than long hours of diverted attention. Also, relax completely while taking breaks.
- Don’t push yourself for overstressed or underslept hours. Take power naps often to keep yourself recharged.
- Speed and accuracy are very important. Measure these factors effectively while taking practice tests.
- JEE exam is divided into 3 difficulty parameters: easy, moderate and tough. Try solving the easy and moderate ones first and then devote your time to the tough ones.

- Take sound sleep of 6-8 hours the previous night.
- Keep an optimistic and positive attitude.
- Don’t discuss much with your friends about the preparations.
