It is very important to follow a routine. Following a routine religiously is important for the final preparation.
- Study whenever you feel like, few students are active during early morning hours and few are proactive at late hours. Select the time which you are comfortable with.
- Stick on to the schedule and choose tough/complicated topics and concepts when you are at the peak of your energy as this helps the brain to grasp more.
- Take constant breaks in between to refresh your mind but do not indulge in facebook or whatsapp. Involve in physical exercises, listen to soothing music or do yoga.
- Whenever you feel weighed down with theory, switch on to solving numerical problems as they will help you to reduce the stress and refresh your mind.
- Subject-wise Allotment for JEE Preparation
This is the most important schedule a student needs to follow. You roughly have 30 days more, it is necessary to study for 12 hours a day.
Strategy for Different subjects
- For all the chapters, note down the formulae and revise these formulas everyday
- Solve as many problems as you can
- Maintain different notebooks i.e designate different notebooks for formulas, points, problems etc., as they come in handy for quick revision
Study Physics for 4 hours every day. It depends on an individual whether to study at a stretch or split the hours.
- For 90 minutes, study the theoretical part from NCERT textbooks
- For 60 minutes, concentrate on principles and diagrams
- Devote 60 minutes to solve problems
- Spend 30 minutes on experimental skills
- Solve all the exercises given at the end of each chapter
- Maintain a notebook to keep a tab of all the points for a quick revision
- Concentrate more on chemical reactions
Devote 4 hours for Chemistry and follow the above schedule
- Study theory for 90 minutes
- Solve problems for 60 minutes
- Concentrate of chemical reactions for 60 minutes
- Brush up experimental skills for 30 minutes
- Note down all the formulas, theorems in a handbook
- Work on Math problems when you are feeling stressed as it refreshes your mind instantly
Mathematics is the easiest subject when it comes to JEE preparation.
- Work on Calculus for 90 minutes
- Solve other problems for 60 minutes
- Work on theorems and its applications for 90 minutes
- Read the theory for 30 minutes
- Important topics for JEE Mains 2016
Every portion of syllabus is important for JEE Mains, as every year the weightage given to the topics vary and it is impossible to predict the questions or chapters from where most questions are asked. Our experts at Byju’s have analyzed the JEE papers from last few years and have listed the topics/chpters from where more questions are asked.
