IIT JEE: JEE Preparation- SWOT Analysis

Every student who is preparing for JEE Main, JEE Advanced and other competitive exams have access to the same material which consists of a similar set of books and study materials. Further, the concepts in these materials also remain the same. So, it all comes down to your state and presence of mind during the exam and the extra hacks that you apply that will give you a certain edge over your competitors. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses and using them to your advantage is one of the benefits that you can have.

What Does SWOT Mean?

  1. S – Strength
  2. W – Weakness
  3. O – Opportunity
  4. T – Threats

Although SWOT analysis is mainly used in business ventures, any project can have a SWOT model, because it gives you an overview of your standing while letting you plan activities to circumvent problems.

SWOT For JEE Preparation

In order to tackle the JEE exams by using a SWOT analysis, the following information should be known to you. Take up a couple of mock tests before you build this list. You can make your list based on the table that has been given below.

Strengths Weaknesses Opportunities Threats
Build a list of the easiest topics according to you, from which “all” questions can be answered correctly by you Build a list of topics which you are not confident about and therefore cannot answer “all” questions that come from here Build a list of topics on which your preparation amount is average and therefore problems can either be tackled or not depending on the question Build a list of topics which you always somehow do incorrectly. This may also include types of questions that you mess up.
You have to be absolutely confident about any questions that come from these topics. Continuously take efforts to make sure that topics from this column do not shift to others. You may have to work and think to an extreme amount to tackle questions from these topics. These topics need work. These topics can be converted into strengths and eventually all questions from these can be tackled Take appropriate measures to shift topics and questions from this column to opportunities.

Build a SWOT list for each subject separately, and you can be more organized by having individual tables for different chapters under each subject as well. When you have built your table you can have an overview of where you stand and further preparation can be planned based on this analysis.
