IITs are one of the most prestigious colleges in the country. All the Engineering aspirants wish to get into one of the IIT, but getting into such an institution is not an easy task. A lot of hard and smart work with dedication is required to ace JEE Main and JEE Advanced and get into IIT or some other top educational institution in the country. Many students wonder when is the right time to start preparing for IIT JEE? Well, no one can answer this question but you.
Whether you crack JEE or not depends on the three I’s;
- Intention
- Integrity
- Interest
All in all, students need to be smart and employ clever strategies to prepare productively for the exam. Besides, getting the preparation right will help make the entire process a much more manageable task. Below we have listed a few JEE preparation tips that will help aspirants to prepare holistically and excel in these exams.
Useful Preparation Tips For JEE
Firstly, you know that IIT JEE exams are approaching and you intend to perform well, but the question here is how “well” do you want to perform regarding JEE rank? Give your intention a definite goal. Analyze what you need to do to achieve that target.
- Write it on paper and stick it on a wall
- Make a study schedule (study plan)
- Split the subjects according to the complexity
- Do a SWOT analysis and concentrate more on weak concepts
Secondly, be honest with yourself, never try studying something for the sake of studying when you don’t feel like. Concepts learned halfheartedly may build confidence but will eventually push you in a state of denial where you won’t even know where you stand and then subconsciously you will accept defeat. One must have a constant dedication throughout the year to get into IIT.
- Concepts/topics that are complicated which may eventually bore you should be studied when you are most active
- Concepts which are easier can be studied after a hectic day from school
- Attempt mock tests on weekends to know the level of your understanding
Both the above points depend on one most important factor which is interest. This is something you will have to develop so you can study effortlessly for the IITJEE.
Alternative Methods Of Studying
One alternative to studying from the IITJEE books can be watching conceptual videos of the JEE topics that you are studying, the audiovisual impact that it has on one’s mind is beyond comprehension, and it saves time. This method is effective because it keeps you hooked on to studies while preparing for IITJEE without conscious effort.

Started preparation for IIT JEE? Here is your study plan for 1 month. If you strictly follow this study schedule, you will finish a huge part of the syllabus.
Lastly, be confident with yourself, remember that if your mind can perceive it, then you can achieve it!
Apart from this, you should also remember these tips.
Get Hold Of The Syllabus
If you want to prepare well for the exam, then you should start by getting a hold of the JEE syllabus. Go through it completely and you will find a lot of important details in the document. The syllabus will contain information about the course objectives, important chapters and concepts, question paper pattern and marking scheme, details about reference materials and more. With such valuable information in hand, you can develop a comprehensive preparation strategy.
Choose Your Preparation Material Wisely
We do not recommend you to buy or refer many books or other preparation material for JEE. This will only lead to confusion. Therefore, it is very crucial that you make use of the right study material that will enhance your preparation. For this, you can do some research, ask help from experienced candidates or mentors. They can also give their suggestions on the materials.
How to identify good preparation materials? One of the most common traits is that they usually cover all the important topics from the syllabus and have content that aligns with the format and style of the JEE exam.
Test Your Preparation Level
So you have read through the materials and learnt the concepts. Now you should test your preparation level. For this, you can solve JEE question papers or take mock tests. These study exercises will help you to not only test your knowledge on the subject but will help you improve on your weak areas, gain better problem-solving skills and develop higher confidence. Apart from this also keep some extra time to conduct revisions before the exams.
Don’t Overdo Things
Generally, students tend to burn the midnight oil before or during the exams. This is a wrong practice. Instead, you should avoid studying for long hours. This could result in the dullness of the mind. We recommend you to take breaks in between and also get proper rest at night. In addition, JEE preparation can get pretty intense therefore you should take time to distress. You can engage in light activities such as going for a short walk, listening to music, etc. It is important to remain both physically and mentally fit. Also, you should eat healthy food and exercise regularly.
These are some of the few ways in which you can prepare competently for the exam and ace JEE.
