JEE 2018: Important topics & books

Below are the main points on which students are focusing more.

1. Striking a balance between Board Exam and Engineering Entrance Examinations

Most of the students shared their problem in striking a balance between their board exam and Engineering Entrance Examinations like JEE Main, JEE Advanced, UPSEE/ UPTU, WBJEE, VITEEE, SRMJEEE etc. Students have to study syllabus of Class 12 for Board Exam but for Engineering Entrance Examinations they need to study the syllabus of both the classes i.e., Class 11 and class 12. So, they have to spend some more time in practicing questions and revising syllabus of class 11.

Many students believe that it is good to focus on Board Examination as you have to score 75 percent marks in your board examination to qualify for JEE Main entrance examination.

2. Giving more time on revision instead of learning new topics

Students agreed to give more time on revision. They consider it must do activity before any examination, as told by their coaching faculty. They think that revising old concept is better than studying new concepts. “If you do not make a revision before the exam, you will not be able to finally recall the studied topics to answer in the exam.” one of the students said.

3. Preparing quick revision notes for examination

During examination you cannot study complete book so, preparing revision notes is must. Revision is not just reading notes thoroughly. In fact, revision should include all the essential tips, theory, important numerical or practical that would help you in attempting questions with ease.

“It is often seen that most of the students don’t prepare their revision notes while going through the subject in the class and as a result, while revising the subject they tend to miss out various crucial points which are very important from examination point of view.” said one faculty in coaching institute.


4. Focusing on Self Study

Some of the aspirants said that the self study is very important. We have to do self study so that we can ask our doubts in the classes. They said that they only attend doubt sessions in coaching institute. 

5. Do not ignore NCERT

A bright student from a prestigious coaching institute in Kota said that our faculties told us to rely heavily on NCERT. They say “If you do well in your board examination, then you will certainly do well in your Engineering Entrance Examination like JEE Main, JEE Advanced, UPSEE/ UPTU, WBJEE, VITEEE, SRMJEEE etc.”

NCERT books are very important for board examination as well as Engineering Entrance Examinations like JEE Main, JEE Advanced, UPSEE/ UPTU, WBJEE, VITEEE, SRMJEEE etc. Approximately 70 percent of the questions are asked on the basis of NCERT books in Engineering Entrance Examination.

6. Solving Sample Papers, Practice Papers and Previous Years’ Paper in allotted time

As we all know the time duration for the exam is three hours. It is very important for students to manage time and speed which will come after a lot of practice. To increase your speed practice more and more sample papers or previous years question papers to have a grip on the type of questions that come in the actual exam. This will help in managing your time efficiently while you attempt your question paper. “Solving sample papers and previous years’ question paper help in two ways: Firstly they get rid of the fear of unknown and secondly they help in time management.” said one of the faculty members in Kota.

7. Staying Healthy

Staying healthy is very important for everyone – either you are a student or a professional. If you are healthy and eat right food, then it can help you to cope with stress of examination and also fight illness.

The faculty members of coaching institute in Kota advice their students to jog for at least half an hour to keep them healthy. They also advice to do yoga to keep physically and mentally fit.

8. Retrospection of the day

At this crucial stage of your exam preparation for IIT JEE Main and Board you should not waste a single minute. In night, when you go to bed you should retrospect what you learnt today and how you can improve it tomorrow. In this way you can improve each day.

9. Not sticking only to IITs

In the survey done by Jagranjosh in, coaching institute hub, Kota we found that students are not only sticking to IITs, they are searching for other options too. Now students are trying new branches and new colleges for engineering courses. With only two attempts for IIT, students are not wasting time in coaching institutes if are not selected in first attempt. They look for NITs, IIITs and other government engineering colleges instead.

10. Tracking the progress:

Some students said that they solve mock test papers and monitor their progress daily. With the help of this activity, they can identify their weak areas. Students must invest more time and give more focus on your weak areas. Tracking their progress will help them evolve as a better competitor for the entrance test. Simultaneously, they should also concentrate on improving their speed and accuracy.
