Q 1. What did you choose - Offline or Online mode for taking up the exam?
i chose offline mode because i was in habit of studding from books and my speed was more in pen paper mode. also in online mode of examination one may need to first copy the given conditions on a paper which is more time consuming.
Q 2. Did you qualify for JEE - Advanced?
Q 3. Did you take Coaching Classes? If yes, how did they help in your story?
Yeah, i took coaching classes at shimla (Vidyapeeth Pvt Ltd. ). and i believe one should join coaching classes because the things taught in school are not of jee level and are not sufficient for cracking jee exam. the assignments consisting of important and good questions, weekly test, guidance from teachers and colleagues helped me a lot.
Q 4. How did you manage JEE Main Preparation along with your Class 12th exam?
It was easy to manage time for cbse exams and jee preprations. if one revises what is done in school and in coaching classes then i belive that it wont be much difficult to manage time. i used to 1st study the basics of the topics which we have covered in coaching. The basics of any topic wont change. basic concepts taught in school and coaching will remain same. after studing the basic concepts i used to practice questions because basics of a topic only gives an overview but if one needs to understand it completely and remeber it for longer time practicing questions is important.
Q 5. What were your Strong and Weak areas? How did you prepare and what special efforts did you put for improving them?
Physics and chemistry were my strong but maths was the weakest. Physics is completely logical and in chemistry, one needs to understand the topics and apply it. though there is some cramming in chemistry but was easy.
Q 6. What mock papers did you take?
Bitsat previous years, arihant previous years , question papers prepared by coaching teachers, and coaching institutes
Q 7. Write some of the Preparation tips for someone who is starting 4 months before the exam?
