FAQ (Frequently Asked Question)

Q1. Is it important to take any coaching from class IX onwards?

Ans. In today’s scenario many institutes are offering courses for class V onwards. But we feel that class IX is the right stage to start serious preparations for your career. This is important because it gives you strong fundamentals and a relevant exposure to the competitive world.

Q2. Can I score 640 in the NEET 2024 with only PYQ and revision?

Ans. With only 3 months left for NEET 2024, it is not really possible to attain this score just by practicing PYQ. If you have prepared from the beginning and are thorough with the syllabus atleast this stage, then you can.

Q3. Are the Engg./Medical Entrances the only path to success?

Ans. It is not necessary to study only Engineering/Medicine after opting Science stream in class XI. But it is equally true that no other career option except Engg/Med. can offer the same prospects in terms of career graph, prestige and money.

Q4. How many questions must I attempt in JEE Main to get a good rank?

Ans. To secure a good rank in JEE Mains, it’s generally recommended to aim for accuracy over quantity. Attempting at least 45-50 questions correctly is a good target. Focus on the questions you are confident about, manage your time wisely, and ensure a strong understanding of the concepts. Remember, quality performance matters more than the sheer number of questions attempted.

    Q34. Do questions from the JEE Mains come in the NEET?
    Ans. Yes, there is a possibility of JEE Mains questions getting repeated in NEET. Generally, the relatively easier questions asked in JEE in Physics and Chemistry are also asked in NEET.
    Q35. Has "none of the above" ever been the right answer to a question in NEET or JEE?
    Ans. Yes, why not. “None of the above” or None of these is many a times the correct answer. All the options are too close to the correct answer, that at times when you don’t calculate till the end, you may answer the incorrect one.
    Q36. Does the difficulty level of questions in physics and chemistry remain the same in the NEET and JEE Mains?

    Ans. Not really. Only a few questions in JEE which are of an easy or moderate level may match the NEET Level. Otherwise, generally NEET questions are of a relatively easier level as compared to JEE Mains.

    Q37. Are JEE Mains PYQ’s important for NEET?

    Ans. A few questions asked in JEE Mains that are relatively easy can be practiced for NEET Preparation.

    Q38. Which is better, JEE Mains or NEET?
    Ans. Better in which respect ! Both are different. If you want a career that should start paying at the earliest, then Engineering is better. Qualifying NEET and studying MBBS only is not enough.

    Ans. One must solve atleast 3-4 years PYQ’s for JEE Mains/NEET Preparation. This is the minimum that you must do, maximum depends upon your capacity and the time availability you have. But remember to solve the PYQ’s after completing the syllabus or the topics thoroughly.
    Q40. What are JEE Mains, JEE Advanced and NEET Exams?

    Ans. JEE is the Joint Entrance Exam for Engineering aspirants. Students who want to do Engineering take Non Medical in XI and give JEE Mains exam in XII. If they want admission in any college except IIT’s, only JEE Mains is to be given. But if a student wants to study from IIT’s, then they have to come in the top 2-2.5L students in JEE Mains merit list. Then they will be eligible to sit for JEE Advanced exam, and those who qualify JEE Advanced can study in IIT. So, JEE Mains is a exam for admission in DTU, NSIT, IIIT’s, NIT’s etc and serves as a preliminary exam for JEE Advanced.

    NEET is the National Eligibility cum Entrance test for studying MBBS, BDS etc in Medical colleges all over India. The students who are desirous of studying Medicine, take Medical stream in XI, and give NEET in XII. Then they can go for MBBS, B.Pharma, BAMS, Nursing, BDS, BHMS, BUMS, Microbiology courses.

    Q41. Can we crack the JEE or the NEET together?
    Ans. It is difficult to crack both JEE and NEET together, but nothing is impossible. A bright and hardworking student can achieve success in both exams simultaneously with consistent preparation and regular self study. It is difficult to manage 4 subjects together, PCMB , but taking Maths with Bio can not only help in Physics and Chemistry, but also open up various career opportunities too.
    Q42. Shall I opt to answer all questions in JEE Mains?

    Ans. No, not really. There is negative marking in the ratio of 1:4 in JEE Mains, so it is not advisable to answer all questions without knowing the answer upto a certain extent. You can do intelligent guessing, if you are not able to reach till the final calculation or you can try to find the correct answer by eliminating the wrong ones. But random guessing is not to be done in case of negative marking.

    Q43. Which is the tough exam out of JEE and NEET, regarding Physics and Chemistry ?
    Ans. The level of questions asked in Physics and Chemistry in NEET is generally easier than JEE Mains. Although a few questions asked in NEET are also relatively tough, but still if we talk overall, NEET Exam is relatively easier than JEE in terms of level of questions.
    Q44. Why is NEET so easy, as compared to JEE Mains ?

    Ans. NEET is only easy in terms of the level of questions asked in Physics and Chemistry, as compared to JEE Mains. Biology in NEET can’t be compared with Maths in JEE. Also, considering the number of seats under NEET, the admission is quite difficult as compared to admission in Engineering colleges through JEE Mains. For a General category student, admission in MBBS in a Govt. College is much difficult as compared to JEE.

    Q45. What is your opinion on the JEE/NEET exam?
    Ans. JEE/NEET Exams are the first best option available to any Science stream student. Both of them are considered to be premier exams, and all students aspire to qualify in these exams to develop a rewarding career. The prospects after qualifying these exams are the best in terms of money, prestige and career graph. The students desirous of cracking these exams must start their preparation from beginning of Class 11th, as the exams are tough and lakhs of students appear for them.
    Q46. What are the biggest lies about IIT-JEE and NEET ?
    Ans. There are several myths about JEE and NEET Exams, like :
    ● These exams are meant for only top students. An average student can’t crack these exams
    ● If you prepare for these exams, you will not have any social life
    ● You will have to go to Kota to qualify in these exams
    ● Only Engineering/Medical colleges graduates can guide for these exams
    ● One needs to solve maximum number of questions to prepare well
    ● Life and career is smooth after qualifying these exams
    Q47. Is NEET preparation enough for JEE Main?

    Ans. Not really. The level of questions asked in JEE are of a higher level than NEET and test you upon the application part of concepts also. And since Maths is not required for NEET Exam, that part also needs to be worked upon. So, only preparing Physics and Chemistry at NEET level can’t be considered sufficient for JEE.


    Q48. Why are JEE Physics questions tougher than NEET Physics questions?
    Ans. It is because of the overall toughness level of the exam, as JEE Main is a tougher exam as per level of questions asked. Also, the usage of Physics in further studies for Engineering students is far higher than its usage in Medical studies. That is why, the application part of concepts is tested more in Engineering studies than in Medical.
    Q49. Why are JEE Physics questions tougher than NEET Physics questions?
    Ans. Considering the number of seats available in Govt. Colleges and the number of aspirants who sit for NEET, the admission is quite tough. Everyone can’t afford the fee of Pvt Medical colleges and with 20-25 lakh students appearing for NEET, the competition gets too tough. And with 180 questions to be attempted in 180 minutes, leaving you with less than a minute for a question, making it a tough exam.
    Q50. What was the most illogical question asked in JEE Mains tiil date ?
    Ans. There may be quite a few such questions which don’t require any logic or application of concepts that have been asked in JEE Mains till now. Most of them may be from Chemistry, and may only require your to cram the minutest details of the topics. Some of such questions were:
    ● What is the hottest region in the flame?
    ● What is the optimum concentration level of lead in drinking water?
    ● Galvanizing is coating of which metal on the surface of other metals?
    Q51. I am in 7th grade, shall I start preparing for JEE/NEET/Any other Competitive exams ?

    Ans. I feel it is too early for any kid to start preparing for Competitive exams from class 7th. According to me, class 9th is the right stage to start your preparation, when the level of study and the level of maturity goes on the next level.

    Q52. Is coaching necessary to crack JEE/NEET ?


    Yes, coaching is required to qualify JEE/NEET. Without coaching, it is not possible for a student to cover the vast syllabus on his/her own. Secondly, it is not possible for a student to find out the relevant material which should not only be exam oriented but also be free from errors. The Coaching institute will provide a proper framework and systematic schedule to a student’s preparation alongwith a regular testing, doubt removal and evaluation system.

    Q52. Is coaching necessary to crack JEE/NEET ?


    Yes, coaching is required to qualify JEE/NEET. Without coaching, it is not possible for a student to cover the vast syllabus on his/her own.

    Q53. Which is the best book for JEE and NEET Preparation?
    Ans. Even though the best material will be a relevant compilation from various sources as per the latest exam pattern. But still, the best possible books for JEE and NEET Preparation can be as follows:
    Physics-Errorless by Disha Publication and PYQ’s by Disha
    Chemistry -Inorganic Chemistry by Dr. O.P. Tandon
    Physical Chemistry by Dr. P. Bahadur
    Organic Chemistry by Jagdamba Singh
    Maths- JEE Mains and Advanced by Cengage Publication and PYQ’s by Arihant Publication
    Biology-Disha’s New syllabus Objective NCERT Xtract Biology
    Biohack For NEET UG : by Parth Goyal
    Q54. . Who is more frustrated, a NEET Aspirant or a JEE Aspirant?

    Ans. Any one can be frustrated, it is not a matter of JEE or NEET Aspirant. Frustration is generally not because of any exam pressure. It is inbuilt, when we feel we are not able enough to qualify or we have a guilty feeling that we are not doing enough. Only when we do our best possible efforts and still don’t get the desired results, anyone, be it JEE or NEET Aspirant can feel frustrated.

    Q55. . Why questions in Competitive exams are MCQ based only?
    Ans. There are multiple reasons as to why only MCQ’s are asked in competitive exam :-
    1. One of the main reasons is that it eliminates the step markings for an answer. You either get full marks or 0 .

    2. Also MCQ’s save time for both the appearing candidates and the evaluator as candidates can use elimination strategy to answer an MCQ faster and can focus on other questions as they dont have to show steps. For evaluators they just have to mark the right options and not check the steps.

    3. Also marking of steps may differ from evaluator to evaluator and in MCQ there is always one right option, no matter which evaluator is evaluating.
    So in short, MCQ’s are better for both appearing candidates and the evaluators.

    Q56. Why is there more increase in NEET Aspirants as compared to JEE Aspirants?

    Ans. Few main reasons which may be applicable for the rise in NEET Aspirants can be:
    1. Since Covid 19, there is a boom in the health industry opening up various paths for aspirants in terms of career in the Medical Industry.
    2. There has been a 10 % increase in the number of seats for the applicants, hence increasing the chances of clearing the exam.
    3. JEE is being conducted twice a year so if an applicant does not make it in the first attempt , they can appear in the second attempt to better their chances. Hence there are few dropper students as compared to NEET, as it happens once a year only.

    Q57. What are some important Competitive Exams for Science Aspirants?
    Ans. Here is a list of the important exams for Science aspirants:
    1. JEE-For admission into IIT, NIT, DTU, NSIT, IIIT’s
    2. NEET-For admission into Medical Colleges
    3. BITSAT – For admission into BITS
    4. IMUCET – For admission into Indian Maritime University
    5. CUET-For admission in Delhi University
    Q58. How do I choose the best coaching institute in Delhi based on Faculty expertise?
    Ans. Don’t go by the Brand image of the Institute, as it is made through huge advertisements. The tag name of the Institute won’t help you, your result depends on the teachers’ who will guide you. So, always ensure to meet the Faculty members who will teach you, because in Institutes with huge number of students, they only project their top teachers, who will teach in the top most batch only.
