Ques. What did you choose- Offline or Online mode for taking up the exam?

Ans. I chose the offline mode to take the exam. There were many reasons behind that. First of all, I hadn't appeared for any online exam before and hence I didn't want such an important exam to be taken in an unknown pattern. Also, all the practice tests and prelims I had taken were also offline. Also, offline exam was scheduled on 6th of April, earlier than the online exams. I could also evaluate my answers since I could take the question paper home, unlike in online mode.

Ans. High

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

Ans. Yes. I had joined Kalrashukla classes in the 11th std. itself. They had a very good, highly experienced and qualified professional faculty. They had also given us several practice books for JEE Main as well as for 12th. The questions in these books and those that appeared in the tests that they conducted were up to the mark of the JEE level. Their faculty was also very co-ordinating and helpful. As an example, one of our teachers undertook a doubt-solving lecture even on the day when one of her family members expired. One of the faculty members used to take unofficial doubt-solving lectures, i.e. he didn't used to take payment for those. Hence, they have helped me a lot.

Ans. 9

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

Ans. I was a student of the Maharashtra State Board, and our board exams were scheduled in the months of February-March. There was not much difference in the syllabus of JEE Main and 12th, hence I studied conceptually everything till December. I solved practice papers for boards at home and the preliminary exams at classes and the college in December and January, and didn't focus much on JEE Main in those months. After the boardexams were over, I gave JEE prelims in my classes and solved MCQs from practice books.

Ques. 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 mathematics and chemistry. Because of helpful and co-ordinating faculty and to-the-point coverage of every nook and corner of the syllabus, I could score well there.
Physics was my weak point. I didn't even used to properly understand many concepts out there. In order to improve my physics to some extent, I used to refer to and solve MCQs from Errorless MCQ series. I don't think that has improved much since then. I only scored 33 in JEE Physics.

Ques. What mock papers did you take?

Ans. I didn't take any separate mock tests other than our classes' JEE prelims, and kept on going through the same questions again and again, because I found them to be of special type and useful. I didn't feel any need to solve any extra papers. All that I did extra was solving some MCQs from Universal Self Scorer's Errorless books for physics and maths. My classes' mock tests certainly helped me a lot, in fact, I scored my marks which were very close to the average that I obtained in my class tests.

Ques. Physics: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section.

Ans. I was and still am very weak in physics. For physics, one of our faculty Mr. Sandeep Chaudhary was highly experienced and was a cross moderator in the board. I used to take many advises from him. I used to solve electrical and magnetic physics earlier as compared to particle and motion physics, because I felt that was simpler and less time consuming to solve. I used to read thoroughly the state board textbooks (of 11th and 12th std.), the classes MCQ theory and theory from Universal Self Scorer's Errorless. I used to consult the faculty whenever I had any doubts in the subject.

Ques. Chemistry: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section

Ans. I used to love chemistry more than any other subject. For chemistry, not only the theory from books, but also the laboratory practical experiments in the college helped me a lot. I used to like it to that extent that perhaps it was the only subject for which I had solved all the MCQs of some chapters. I used to like organic chemistry more than inorganic, hence I used to solve those MCQs first. I frankly feel that Chemistry was the simplest of all subjects, and advise people to take it conceptually rather than theoretically. I referred state board textbooks of 11th and 12th std., classes notes and MCQ theory, Modern ABC of Chemistry (NCERT reference books), etc.

Ques. Mathematics: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section.

Ans. I used to like maths pretty well. Even our maths faculty was well experienced and co-ordinating. I used to study maths conceptually as well, i.e. rather than studying 'what the formula is', studying 'how and why the formula is' is better as per me. In this way, you can easily prove any formula during your exams if you forget it. For maths, in fact, I referred the most number of books, i.e. state board textbooks for 11th and 12th, Universal Self Scorer's Errorless series, classes' MCQ notes, theory books, high-level JEE question books, etc. All these books certainly helped me a lot in my exams.

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

Ans. Frankly speaking, when I was in 11th, my dream college to get into was VJTI in Computer Engineering which I have successfully acco1mplished in spite of being an open category student. I had never aimed for IIT's or BITS, I would have always liked to be in Mumbai with my family. Even if I would have felt the need for a better college, I think I could have studied more, by watching video tutorials on YouTube, which I currently do and could have managed my available time more efficiently.

Ques. Do you want to review your College?

Ans. No

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

Ans. Frankly speaking, studying for JEE Main is not possible if you just start four months before the exam. It's not any normal olympiad or quiz. It requires a lot of effort and you need to study keeping in mind your goals at least 2 years prior, i.e. in 11th std. However, I can just advise him/ her to go through all concepts well and make them crystal-clear. I advise not to take up mock tests that soon and concentrate more on studying the syllabus. Crash courses offered in various coaching institutes are of no help.
