How did you manage to prepare for JEE Main along with your Class 12th exam?

I would suggest following suggestions to suit you best, but there is no other way to get a good rank apart from hard work and practice:

  1. Try to complete your 12th Standard syllabus by August or mid-September, Go through all the topics in NCERT. As from October onwards, FIITJEE's AITS would start, and at the same time, your school would take various mock tests in the name of Board's preparation. If you haven't completed the syllabus beforehand, you would be wasting time studying for those tests rather than concentrating on your JEE and test series.
  2. While you are at completing your NCERT, never lag behind the FIITJEE's content. Once you start lagging, it becomes tough to catch up. I may sound contradictory but believe me, it's not that difficult to manage both NCERT and FIITJEE together. What you need to do is specify hours when you would concentrate on Boards and when on JEE, in these 2-3 months. Plan out a schedule based on your routine in that will enable you to do that. This you must do on your own.
  3. Here comes the crucial part. Around September you would have completed your NCERT and also be acquainted with what is going on in FIITJEE. From here onwards you need to go full throttle and concentrate on JEE only.
  4. Make a timetable which enables you to study both 11th and 12th syllabus simultaneously. For example, give 3 hours to 11th every day and 6 to 12th(This is just to give an idea.). During your 11th slot solve previous year papers of 11th, FIITJEE's RSM and Challenging problems from Arihant.
  5. In the meanwhile, you would be giving AITS also. Never try to just skim through a topic you are not comfortable with just because it's in AITS syllabus. Whatever you are completing, complete it with the conviction that you would not need to go through the topics again for the next test (i.e. AITS). You may not score well in your initial tests, but after 2-3 tests, you would be pretty well off. Follow this and the previous step till December.
  6. This would take us to January. A time for a trade off now. You might have your Pre-Boards now(The dates vary from school to school, but I had mine in January). Give 2-3 hours towards your Boards 15 days before your pre-boards(so basically from January first week). This would help you score well in your Pre-Boards as well as allow you sufficient time for JEE preparation.
  7. In the remaining hours, you should solve the GMP and the questions you were not able to solve in the AITS(if it is a case). Revise one topic of Physics, Chemistry or Maths daily to make sure you don't lose touch with the nuances of the topic. So you would be revising roughly 2-3 topics of PCM each week over and above the practice.
  8. If you can stick to this, I am sure you would be quite confident of all the topics by mid-February. You can then peacefully give your Board exams in March and score well there as it matters now.

What were your Strong and Weak areas? How did you prepare and, what special efforts did you put for improving them?

Strong Areas:

  • Good performance in board exam in subjects like Mathematics and Science
  • Exercise diligently and try to solve questions without looking for solutions.
  • Composure and temperament, Making revision notes

  1. All India Open Test Series for NTSE sample series
  2. FIITJEE Mocking test series
  3. Distance course for two years, 2006-07

Write some of the Preparation tips for someone who is starting four months before the exam?
