How to increase accuracy and speed for JEE Advanced?

  • Get your syllabus right-

Seems like such a simple thing, right? But this is where most students get wrong. There is an umpteen number of exams out there that will ensure you a definite entry into the entrance exam. This may make you deflect from the main syllabus. Time is of the essence when it comes to JEE Advanced and even an hour of focus lost can cost you many ranks. So, get the exact syllabus from the official website of JEE, print it and stick it up your wall, check it out as you go about your preparation and keep referring to time and again as you go about.

  1. Practice-

One cannot stress enough how much practice really is your MAJOR game-changer. It truly is. JEE Advanced is your good old concepts form class 11th and 12th. But what separates it from other exams is how it can connect two really different topics to make a complex problem out of it. If you have solved questions of variety, you have seen these complex problems before. You have solved these problems many times before. You know the pattern, you know the way to solve it.

This is where you want to be. When you see a question and your mind has seen so many of such questions that it needed no time to think about it. You need to have really instilled your formulae, equations, and calculations by now. This is the goal and practice is your only true route.

  1. Make notes-

Making notes not only re-installs the points in your head, but it is also your biggest tool for revisions. When you are done with a chapter, collect your thoughts to note down your major learnings, formulae, equations, derivations. This is what you will glimpse through in the end. Going through entire theory again will not be possible as JEE Advanced comes closer. One of the biggest tools to score high in JEE Advanced result is really nailing your revision. No scope for making silly mistakes or forgetting what you did know, after all, isn’t it?

  1. Strategy during the exam-

Choose what subject works out best for you to choose first. For every person this differs- some like to start with Physics, some with Maths and some with Chemistry. Idea is to start with something you are good at to get the ball rolling and build up your confidence. Always start with the questions that you can solve under a minute. You will look at them and you will know they are the easy ones. The thing about the easy ones is that they don’t really require complex thinking. They are usually based on simple formulae or so. Like the questions, we get in inorganic chemistry most times. These questions are sure positive marks. you don’t want to miss out on easily available marks.

After solving easy questions, you want to go to questions that require critical thinking. Most of your JEE paper is filled with such type of questions. If you have spent anywhere between 40-50 seconds thinking about the way to solve a question and you still can’t find a way, LEAVE IT. Don’t spend another second on a question like this. Chances are, even if you attempt it, it might become your black hole and suck up a lot of your valuable time. Learn to move on. And move on without harming your confidence. It is alright to leave a few questions.

  1. Solve as many previous year papers and mock tests as possible-

Before the D-Day, you most definitely should spend time taking many mock tests. Exam simulation is very important because it shows you exactly what it would be like when you do appear for your real exam. On top of that, you also get AIRs and answer sheets. The AIRs hold a mirror to where you stand in the competition and the answer sheets are your point of reference for improvements. Always analyze your paper. Literally, each and every paper must be analyzed. This will show you what silly mistakes you do, what concepts you need to improve, what kind of questions you need to practice more, what complex co-relations you need to learn, etc.

With that, we sum up our article on how to increase accuracy and speed for JEE Advanced. We hope you flourish in your JEE exam and it shows in your JEE Advanced result this year. All the very best!
