How To Cover JEE Advanced Syllabus In One Month
As exam dates approach, organising oneself is key to success, here are some tips from experts to help students preparing for JEE.
A month before the most anticipated JEE advanced exam kicks off, students start feeling the exam jitters. Their mind is consumed with questions such as: How will I crack the exam? Have I prepared enough? Can I bear the exam stress? Will my years of hard work come to fruition?
Although the doubts have a strong grounding, overburdening your mind with such constant self-doubt will do more harm than good. Instead, students should redirect their focus on what they know the best and plan last month's studies accordingly. This will boost your confidence and prepare you for all the challenging questions during the exams.
Here are some handy tips that will bolster your exam preparation game and ensure 100 per cent JEE advanced syllabus coverage in the last 1 month:
Focus on Topics with Heavy Weightage
High weightage topics help you bag maximum marks. Create a plan where you cover at least 1 topic from each subject daily. This will help you revise properly and prevent your mind from getting overburdened.
Important topics for reference
Heat and Thermodynamics
Alcohols, Phenols and Ethers: Basic concepts, properties and preparations.
Matrices and Determinants
Continuity and Differentiability
Equilibrium in Physical and Chemical Processes
Kinetic Theory of Gases
Haloalkenes and Haloarenes
Mechanical Properties of Matter (Stress-strain curve)
Resonance of Mechanical Wave on Strings (Harmonics and Overtones)
Organic Compounds Containing Nitrogen p-Block Elements
Area Under Curves
Bohr's Model of Atomic Spectrum
Study of first Element: Hydrogen
Sequences and Series Vectors
Work, power and energy
Application of Derivatives
Faraday's law of Electromagnetic Induction
Reactions of alkyl halides, alcohols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, amines.
Three-Dimensional Geometrical System
Master All the Easy-To-Grasp Concepts
You’ll come across many topics that are easy to understand but don’t have much weight. Students often tend to skip such concepts and theories. Instead, master them. Such topics are considered to play a pivotal role in deciding whether a student has made the final cut in the exams or not.
Solve Unique Types of Numericals
Young learners often binge-practice the same type of numerical. This strengthens your theoretical understanding but prevents you from learning unique types of sums. In competitive exams such as JEE advanced, tricky and challenging questions appear often. Students should redirect their focus on solving unique numerical instead of repeatedly practising the same ones to build a sound understanding of the subject and be exam ready.
Stick with One Reference Book
Many professors and tuitions will suggest you refer to multiple books for your studies. This strategy is effective when you have 1-2 years left for the exams. With almost only one month remaining for the JEE advanced exams, students should stick to 1 book for theoretical understanding (NCERT) and another 1 book for MCQs-based numerical questions. Referring to multiple books will prove as a distraction because every author has a unique tone of writing. This will create confusion in your mind and can affect your studies too.
Summarise to memorise
As you will face a severe time crunch while preparing for JEE advanced exams in 1 month, summarising chapters will lead to a better concept grasp. Begin by jotting down key takeaways from all the topics and continue the process every day. Towards the last week of the exam, you’ll have your own set of notes to refer to - allowing you to revise at any given time and save you the additional effort of skimming through the reference books.
Revise, Practice, Repeat
While learning concepts will be a part of your preparation strategy, don’t forget to practice mock tests and solve previous years’ papers. Add them to your to-do list for every week. The reason being, the mock tests will amp up your question-solving skills and last years’ papers will give you a strong idea of the exam pattern and frequency of challenging as well as unique questions. You’ll witness many concepts in a completely different limelight.
One key point to note is to take requisite breaks between studies and sleep for a good 7-8 hours. The more healthy and fresh your mind is, the better you’ll be able to grasp concepts and study for long hours. Maintaining a healthy balance is the key. The above-mentioned tips will help you master the preparation strategy and help you cover the JEE advanced syllabus in one month. All the best for the exams and stay confident.
