The practice tests given by BASE were very useful for me to identify my weaknesses and take corrective action. I am indebted to the teachers at BASE. They would explain the concepts excellently and would clarify all our doubts with their expertise. The numerous practice tests were also very useful for my preparation, said Ninad Huilgol, another BASE student.

FIITJEE, Punjabi Bagh Centre - 200 days prepping strategy for JEE Advanced 2017

(The author of this article is Mr. Partha Halder, B.Tech (Chemical Engineering) – Director at FIITJEE, Punjabi Bagh Centre)

Mr. Partha Halder
Mr. Partha Halder

The country’s most coveted engineering entrance exam JEE Advanced 2017, the gateway to the IIT’s is just about 200 days away. It is scheduled on the 21st May, 2017. Engineering aspirant eyeing a seat in their dream IIT has now entered the most critical phase of their preparatory phase. It is during this phase that a student fine tunes their skills, harness their capabilities, monitor their strengths & weaknesses, plug loopholes, assess their national level standing and engage in maximizing their output.

Around this time students must have completed their syllabus of Class XII or would be doing it by end of November. It’s now time for them to change gear to move on to the next level. But, what is important is clinical planning and putting them into execution. Few important pointers listed below would be helpful:

·          Before going to the next level of preparation one must begin by preparing a study & concept-wise revision plan for the next 200 days. The plan should be such that it should factor in two important milestone ie Class XII board exam & JEE Main ahead of JEE Advanced, 2017.

·          If a student has completed Class XII syllabus by now, then they must immediately start revision for Class XI syllabus. As 40-45% of the questions are asked from Class XI syllabus in JEE Main and also in JEE Advanced. Students would not get sufficient time for revision later due to Class XII board exam.

·          During revision, remember it is the quality of time spent that is important and not just the quantity. One must engage in Concept wise revision – which means revision should NOT be chapter wise rather it should be concept wise. Lot of times questions are asked wherein multiple concepts are interlinked. If a student revises concept wise then chances of inadvertently missing out on anything is minimal hence automatically their quality of attempts improves. Also, while revising, students must pick up representative problems specific to a concept or chapter and solve them. So, while solving a question a student is reminded of certain concepts or techniques studied earlier and hence other associated things automatically gets refreshed in mind.

·          During revision help and seek help from peer group. Best way to revise is to explain a topic to your friend. Complete clarity with respect to a topic comes only when it is expressed in own words. If possible teach topic-wise. Try to make it a regular practice.

·          Students preparing for JEE Advanced, often ignore few topics which are relevant for JEE Main for example “Chemistry in everyday life” or “Semiconductor”. Hence focus on all topics that are important and relevant for an exam.

·          JEE Advanced is a lot more conceptual based paper hence one needs to revise concepts thoroughly and also its application. As questions asked are application based with the objective to judge a student’s thinking and analytical ability with higher difficulty level, it is imperative to focus on all aspects of a concept. Moreover, every year the pattern of paper and marking scheme remains a surprise element. And this plays a big role by impacting a student’s performance. Hence, questions must be solved by applying your reasoning and analytical ability. Refer to archive i.e previous years JEE Advanced question paper bank. This will help to build confidence to solve specific types of problems.

·          Develop strategy for time management in between the sections i.e Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics.

·          One must subscribe to a good All India Level Mock Test Series. Such test series should be pattern proof so that a student is mentally prepared for any kind of surprises. This will help a student to assess their skills with respect to other good & serious students at the national level. To begin with one must solve at least ONE part or full syllabus test paper in every week. Subsequently appear in All India Level Mock test at least TWICE a month leading up to the exams. If possible subscribe to a good quality ONLINE test series. Also, the report card generated after every such online mock test is instantaneous hence a student gets to know in-depth performance analysis. One can try out for such online test series.

·          While writing the tests students should look at building the right exam temperament, body clock adjustment, ability to focus in various test-taking environments etc.
·          Attend test analysis sessions by experts to gain insight on the ideal approach required to do well. Map it with your performance. Calculate the GAP. Prepare an action plan to narrow the gap. Implement the newly formed strategy in the next All India Mock Tests. Assess the improvement. Subject wise weak areas needs to be identified and revisit those concepts all over again to eradicate them.
·          Students should stick to fundamental approach. Keep concept clarity, there should not be any room for any doubts. Every question will have some unique keyword. Students should underline those keywords while reading the question. Typically a question will have concept basis hidden under each such keyword. Once a student is able to decipher those keywords then they would be able to have absolute concept clarity on how to solve them. Thus it becomes easy to solve instantly. Hence students should not rush through while reading the question for the first time.

·          Success in JEE Advanced is directly proportional to the number of questions solved by “YOU” and NOT “solution seen by you”. Hence, one must NOT refer to solution without solving a question by themselves. Give sufficient time to think logically and analytically to develop a solution approach to a problem. Initially deploy conventional methods of solving. Gradually develop smarter and efficient ways to solve to save on time.

·          During practice and while solving test papers one must keep a tab on the accuracy. To score well one has to be quick and accurate. High speed with low accuracy would prove to be detrimental for JEE.
·          Avoid using a calculator & log tables during preparatory phase (as both are not allowed during the exam). Rely on mental calculation and harness your skills accordingly.
·          Questions selection is extremely crucial. Every paper consists of easy, moderate and difficult questions. JEE will be no different in this regard. In fact a good quality Test series will give you similar experience. Hence while solving mock test develop an eye for selecting the right questions. By quickly solving the easy and moderate questions will enable you to clear the cut-off easily. To go the next level attempting difficult ones would be the key. Judicious attempt should be practiced. Idea is to keep negative marks at bay. This will automatically create a huge difference with the masses as they would be randomly picking up negative marks.

·          During this preparatory period i.e from now till February, one must simultaneously solve Class XII board exam test paper. Though the difference between the syllabus of board and JEE is not substantial still one must practice board exam paper of previous years. Attempt few mock tests as well.

·          Prepare a list of points to remember for all concepts, topic wise and mark the ones that need more practice at your end.

·          Keep referring to high quality notes prepared over the last 18 months.

·          However, one must be careful to read the instructions while attempting the actual exam so that you are well aware of exam pattern and/or marking scheme.

·          To pursue the above point’s one must remain physically fit and mentally focussed. Hence practice meditation to develop inner calm, self control and power of concentration. These matter a lot and will help you on the day of examination. Do not overstress/overstretch yourself. 6-7 hours (esp between 11 pm to 6 am, this helps in setting body clock) of sleep is a must. Late night study must be avoided. Include physical activity in your daily schedule to remain fit and to maintain the right energy level.
