Some DO’s and DON’Ts FOR JEE MAIN
1.) JEE Main requires two things- Speed and Accuracy, and these can be achieved with regular self study and repeated practice of relevant questions in writing.
2.) Know the number of hours of sleep you require and accordingly go to bed at a fixed time to wake up fresh every morning. Don’t have irregular habits like sleeping during day time, staying away at night or sleeping late at night. You must sleep 6 hours. Eat sufficient yet light food, it will help you feel alert .
3.) During the morning, take some light stretching exercise to stimulate oxygen supply to your brain. If you know Pranayama or Meditation, nothing like it. It will help you in improving mental alertness. Remember ‘believing that you can’, is the first step towards success.
4.) Approach one topic at a time and complete its revision before moving onto the next topic. Revision is a must alongwith sufficient practice, in writing.
5.) Depending upon the number of days available, give time for each subject and topic. Your goal should be to qualify and with the best possible marks/rank. There is no minimum qualifying marks in each subject. Therefore, you have to only get the highest possible overall score in JEE Mains.
6.) Make strong points your real strong points – be absolutely thorough in the topics that you are strong in . Do not divert your attention towards topics that you are unsure about. It requires less efforts to score better in the topics you are strong at, than attempting to understand a topic you have barely touched till now. However do the minimum in all the topics which are important.
7.) You must spend 10-15 minutes to plan the whole paper so that you can segregate the questions into tough, tricky and easy categories. So, before attempting the paper you must know from where you need to start.
8.) Chemistry is supposed to be the most scoring, so after reviewing the paper in the first 10-15 minutes, you should preferably start with Chemistry, then move to Physics and take up Maths at the last.
9.) Always keep some spare time at the end to review your attempt, and try to apply intelligent guessing or finding the answer through options for the remaining questions. But don’t do random guess work to avoid negative marking.
