Dedicate mornings for revision and evenings for solving sample papers & mock tests
The early bird catches the worm! Start-off your day early and revise the topic which you covered the previous day or a topic that you still need to work on. It is said that doing revision in the morning keeps you more engaged in the topic. Relatively, it takes less concentration for solving sample papers or mock tests, therefore evenings are more suitable for testing yourself.
Maintain last minute notes
Create a separate notebook and write chapter-wise formulae, equations, graphs, and derivations. Such notes will keep you updated especially before few days of exam. To your surprise, this smart strategy can help you remember each and everything in the long run.
Discuss questions with fellow aspirants
Do not cut-off the connection with your friends while preparing for the JEE Mains or any other entrance exam. You must keep in touch a friend who is also going to appear for the same exam. Sit and discuss the queries together as this way you will end up learning more tricks to solve a particular question.
Master any two subjects
The smartest approach to crack JEE Mains is to master any two subjects out of the three sections. Our ultimate goal is to achieve an AIR in the top 10000. Considering the weightage, strengthening any two subjects will guarantee you an AIR in JEE Mains.
You can refer to the above-mentioned preparations tips for JEE Main 2020 if you have finished-off with the syllabus already. Those candidates who have less time remaining for the preparation can study the notes of the important topics and solve the previous year questions related to them.
