“It is very important to secure the minimum cut-off score in each subject along with the minimum qualifying mark for ranking in IIT-JEE.”
With the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) determining admissions to the Indian Institutes of Technology approaching, practice and examination strategies could make all the difference, say trainers.
It is important to periodically revise all the concepts that candidates have mastered, and not learn any new topic one week before the IIT-JEE examination, which is to be held on April 12. “Do not panic before the examination. Remember that the IIT-JEE is a different exam, but not a difficult exam. To qualify in IIT-JEE you need to score between 30 per cent and 40 per cent only,” is also another tip trainers give students.
Preparing a schedule for the remaining days and implementing it with full dedication and confidence, would help. Taking IIT-JEE mock papers and evaluating oneself, eating right and ensuring one gets enough sleep are also important.
There are some tips that could make a difference on the day of the examination. Reaching the examination centre at least 30 minutes in advance and reading the instructions printed on question paper and specially designed machine-gradable answer sheet (ORS - Optical Response Sheet) carefully are vital. Last year, a few instructions were printed on the last page of the question paper, which students failed to notice.
Students could answer all the questions that do not carry negative marking. Do not spend more time on any particular question (preferably not more than two minutes), do not spend more than 50 minutes on a single subject in each paper and spend equal time on all the three papers. Remember that it is very important to secure the minimum cut-off score in each subject along with the minimum qualifying mark for ranking in IIT-JEE, trainers emphasise.
Students need to make sure they are carrying their admit card, HB pencils, ball point pen, sharpeners, good quality erasers and maybe, a water bottle.
In the case of Physics, revising concepts such as friction, angular momentum, charge distributions, earthing, sign conventions in optics, X-ray effectively are important. Going through the NCERT textbooks, particularly for the concepts such as Radiation in Heat & Thermodynamics, Modern Physics would help.
In Chemistry, the NCERT chapters for Inorganic Chemistry would be useful, and in Mathematics, special focus maybe given to concepts such as Probability, Bayer’s theorem, Integration by parts and Partial fractions.STAFF REPORTER
