The above questions are the most important part of JEE Main preparation process and we commonly call it ‘Self Analysis’. One of the most important things every candidate must practise at every stage of their preparation. So when you have asked these questions there can be the following possibilities in each of the cases:
Do you know the important chapters?
Yes, I do! – That is great. All you need to do focus on these chapters only, as these chapters will save you in the last minute preparation. Make sure these chapters and the formulas they have, are at the tip of your tongue. Just brush up your memory. Do not end up reading the whole chapter, just the important parts. You have only 15 days to cover important topics from all the subjects. JEE Main is all about testing how strong your basics are and how accurately you can solve the questions, thus make sure you have speed in solving the questions but also you have a good accuracy too.
No, I do not!– Know the important Chapters of JEE Main 2018. You must know them right now because you will need to focus your last minute preparation towards them only. They might help you qualify the exam safely if properly prepared.
Do you know your strength and weaknesses?
Since you are going through your board exams and you are done with the chemistry and physics subject exams, you must be knowing which chapters you have done well in and which of them are not so well prepared.
With this advantage in your hand, you will be able to figure out on which areas you need to invest your energy and effort. Whether it is the theory part or the numerical, there are certain chapters that you need to go through all over again that are important for JEE Main 2018, your board exam must have helped you figure out these. Thus you will need to work on your weakness.
You also know your most well-prepared topics, thus make sure you make them your strength. Revise them again and they might help you crack JEE Main 2018. Rushing through the whole syllabus in the last 15 days will do no good. Concentrate on your strengths and the important areas and you will be good to go!
Do you know all the formulas?…All of them?
Make sure in the last minute preparation, you have covered all the formulas, not just the important ones but all of it. This is because formulas are the key to solving most of the questions in JEE Main examination. If you know the formulas, you can apply to the questions that you are not certain about. If you have a clear concept, applying formulas are easy. And with the board exam preparation, most of your concepts should be clear by now.
Have you started solving the question papers/mock tests?
Do get your hand on as many sample papers or previous year question papers and solve them daily. The 15 days between the board exams and the JEE Mains 2018 are the most crucial and the most challenging. You must be thorough with the exam pattern and the marking scheme of the examination and thus it is important you solve at least four sample paper daily. Spend more time in solving sample papers and taking mock tests than on just revising the chapters. This will help you with practice and time management too.
What to do in the 15 days gap between the Board Exams and JEE Main Exam?
