As per the new exam pattern of JEE Main 2020, the maximum marks you can get is 300 now!
Here is the ideal strategy to get a good score in JEE Main 2020.
1. Syllabus and Study Plan
Go through the complete JEE syllabus. You need to learn topics, understand concepts and practice questions as per the syllabus. It is important that your basics of almost all the topics are clear and that you can tackle easy or moderate level problems in those topics, because sometimes easier questions may come from the topics which you didn’t prepare that well.
Make a study plan or routine to complete the syllabus in time. Identify your most productive hours and study every day. Take small breaks between long study hours to maintain the focus and concentration in studies.
2. Understanding concepts and practice
Understand the concepts well and practice lots of problems. Just reading theory will not be enough, solve problems consistently. Find out where you get stuck, improve on your weakness.
3. Avoid reading multiple books
Don’t read too many reference books. Stick to one good MCQ book or study from a JEE coaching material. NCERT is good for chemistry.
4. Clear your doubts regularly
Accept the fact that you can’t understand and learn everything on your own. Don’t be shy to ask even small doubts from the teacher. [JEE Online Doubt Clearing]
5. Revise again and again
Revision is a continuous process. You may think you have done a particular chapter/topic very nicely, but you won’t be able to retain it unless you read it again. This has to be continued throughout the preparation. Make notes and review them. Always revise important points before sleeping.
6. Solve past year papers and online mock tests
To manage time well in JEE Main exam, practice online mock tests. You also need to learn the pattern of solving questions. This is possible only through consistent practice. Solving JEE Main past year papers will give you best idea of the level of questions asked in the exam.
7. Work smart, not just hard
Be smart about your goals and strategy. Know your strength and weakness. It’s okay to make mistakes but be smart enough to learn from them. [How to study smart for JEE]
8. Get support when feeling low
Whenever you feel low due to tiredness or exhaustion, or because of low scores in tests, just speak to someone who cares for you. Be it your parents, brother, sister, or your teacher. You need help from people around you.
9. Sleep well, eat healthy
Compromising on sleep makes you sluggish and lazy. Have a proper sleep, minimum of 7-8 hours. You will feel active throughout the day after a good night sleep. Eat healthy food. You need to stay fit for the exam.
10. Determination and positive attitude
Be determined and stay positive. There will be times when you would find it difficult to understand and manage things. Do not give up.
