Well, to answer all your queries about how to bag a DREAM seat in your favourite engineering institute, we have compiled a list of crucial tips that you should follow to ace the JEE exam with ease. Let’s have a look at them.

Proven Tips to Get a Top 50 Rank in JEE

1. Make a Perfect Study Plan and Stick to it:

‘By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail’- Benjamin Franklin. Like every other competitive examination, IIT JEE preparation requires a well-structured study plan to get the desired results. The JEE curriculum is vast, and to cover it, time plays a key role. Hence, you should follow your daily study routine religiously and stick to it till the end. No matter what! The study plan should include at least 10-12 hours of quality study time and at least 1 hour for the revision. 

2. Engage in Quality Learning:

Once you have made a proper study plan, make sure to make the most of it. Always engage yourself in Quality Learning. It is not the number of study hours you devote that matters: quality studying does! There is no point in investing 10 hours in studies if you cannot solve a simple question. You can study for 8 hours and still be in a better position than other students. Hence, always strive to make your study sessions more productive.

3. Get your ‘Basics’ clear:

Ever wondered what sets JEE toppers apart from the rest of the crowd? It’s their clarity of basics! Basics help us in understanding the question. Most of the JEE questions test your basics rather than your formula remembering skills or speed. The more strong your basics are, the better are the chances to fetch extra marks.

Time for a Pro Tip here: Study 11th and 12th standard NCERT books to get a stronghold on basics.

5. Attempt Mock Tests Quite Often:

Solving mock tests during JEE preparation helps students in many ways such as getting a real-time exam feeling, improving their time management, etc. Mock tests act as a mirror and show you the true picture of your preparation status. Not only do the Mock Tests give you an idea of how to solve the answers in the exams, but they also boost your confidence level tremendously.

6. Analyze and Work on your Weak Areas:

There are many benefits of attempting Mock Tests during IIT JEE preparation. One of the major benefits is that you get aware of your weak areas. Once you know the topics/concepts where you are lacking, it is strongly recommended to devote extra time to properly analyze and understand them.

7. Revise Regularly:

Retaining technical and complex topics/concepts can be a daunting task for JEE aspirants. Revision is of paramount importance in JEE preparation. Make sure to revise everything you study at the end of the day. This will help you to retain information for a longer period and will make you more confident. If you will not revise what has been studied, you will forget everything you have learnt. Hence, inculcate the habit of revision in your daily study routine!

8. Take Care of your Health (Mental and Physical):

Studying for long hours continuously can take a toll on your well-being. It’s normal to forget about physical exercise when you’re studying for longer periods. But, always make sure to create space for other parts of your life. Participate in moderate physical exercise, which you can often do right at home. There may be a time when you are mentally exhausted and unable to focus on your studies. To cope up with such scenarios, meditation and practicing yoga can be of great help. It will help you to calm your mind. Remember to eat well, eat healthy, and get adequate sleep every night.
