Ques.Did you take Coaching Classes? If yes, how did they help in your story?

Ans. Yes, I did take coaching classes. It was in Delhi. By the name of Vidyamandir Classes. It was really helpful in clearing out some concepts which were doubtful for me before. But at times, the coaching proved to be too complicated for me. Especially the higher mathematics and physics problems.i got really bored with time. Actually I took a drop after 12 to prepare for the JEE. I did study for some months in the starting but it really started to bore me afterwards. It is difficult to keep studying the same topics again and again and just waiting for the day you are going to get some college. People who are really hard working and can mug up the questions tend to do really well in the coaching institutions

Ques. Rate the role of Coaching Institutes in cracking JEE Main?

Ans. 3

Ques. How did you manage JEE Main Preparation along with your Class 12th exam?

Ans. Actually it is not that complicated. The things you study for the 12 boards exams are really enough for cracking the JEE Main. For getting really high marks coaching come in handy. I just concentrated on the boards when I was in 12, my concepts were clear and I was able to Crack JEE Main. I did not achieve a really good rank so I opted to take a drop. .


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

Ans. My strong areas were Chemistry and some part of physics. I really did not like higher mathematics problems. So I suffered in maths. In the starting, I was weak in Organic chemistry. I could never learn the concepts. But with time, as I studied the concepts and solved the problems it became clearer to me. Actually chemistry is relatively very easy. And is really helpful if you want to achieve good marks. I did not like maths so I never gave time to it. It remained my weak area. Physics was okay for me. My concepts were clear but I faced difficulty in complicated problems.

Ques. What mock papers did you take?

Ans. I was in Vidyamandir Classes during my preparation. So I took their test papers. They used to have tests every 20 days or so. I also solved the mock test papers provided by the institutions. Actually these test papers and tests helped a lot. The questions are very intelligently crafted by experts in view of the last year's papers. After solving those questions time and again you really get a good idea of how the main paper is going to be. Also some questions that they give in mock papers are found as it is in the main paper. So it saved a lot of time and effort.

And according to me it is not enough. You can solve questions from other books like R. D. Sharma. It really helps. You should also solve more questions. Find the material online or order it. According to me the more questions you do in maths, the better you will score. Solving previous years questions and mock test papers is really important. It really gives you an idea of how the paper is going to be. Mathematics generally takes time. So try to time your self so that you don't take alot of time in the real exam.

Ques. What are the things you would like to go back in time and change to get into a better college?

Ans. I opted for the offline mode. If I had the chance I would go back and opt for online mode. I did good in chemistry but not so good in Maths and Physics. I think I could have done better especially in Mathematics. So I would go back and prepare better for maths.

Ques. Write some of the Preparation tips for someone who is starting 4 months before the exam?

Ans. If someone is starting 4 months before exams, I think he has enough time to really get the concepts clear. I suggest he should do as much questions as he can before the exams. Solve alot of mock test papers. Solve all the previous year's papers because questions do get repeated. He should atleast have all the concepts of NCERT book really clear.
