#1 Students who have a good command over three subjects
The paper will consist of 60 MCQ questions and 15 numerical-based integer-type questions. You need to answer 75 questions within 3 hours. With the new JEE Main 2020 pattern change in place, you’ll get an average of 2.4 minutes per question instead of 2 minutes.
In the JEE exam, mark questions that consume more than the usual time for review, to be attempted for later. Give 40 minutes per subject to solve the MCQ questions. When you do this, you will still be left with an hour to address the 15 numerical based questions.
#2 Students who have focused more on the Board and less on JEE
Segregate all 75 questions based on Grades 11 and 12. Spend an hour and 15 mins solving all Grade 12 questions. The time remaining can be used to solve Grade 11 questions.
#3 Students who do not have a command over all three subjects
- Allot 15 minutes to read all the 75 questions and classify questions as easy, moderate, and difficult questions with a pen & paper. Classify questions that will take less than a minute as easy. Questions that require higher calculations will be marked as moderate. The difficult ones would be the ones you are less familiar with.
- Solve all the easy questions to begin with. The moment a question consumes more time, mark the same for review, and move on to the next question..
- Do not spend more than 2 minutes on questions that are marked as moderate. If you are not very confident about your answer, mark the same for review and move on.
- Attempt difficult questions now. Spend about 3 mins per question.
- Resolve all the questions that are marked for review in the time remaining.
To ace the JEE main exam, don’t refer to anything new right now. Consolidate everything that you have already learnt. Revise essential concepts and formulae in the final leap to the exam.
Take care of your diet and sleep right before the exam to avoid unnecessary physical/mental stress. You will enter the examination hall fresh and with the right kind of temperament.
All the best!
