Note- The following article is about JEE Main 2017. For more information on JEE Main 2018, click here.

Given below is the questionnaire that we had with him and he shares his strategies for JEE Main 2017 aspirants.


Q 1. What did you choose - Offline or Online mode for taking up the exam?

I choose offline mode because I practiced mock tests in offline mode.


Q 2. Did you qualify for JEE - Advanced?

Yes, I qualified for JEE Advanced.


Q 3. Did you take Coaching Classes? If yes, how did they help in your story?

Yes, I joined FIITJEE in 2011, through F-40 test which was held by FIITJEE and I got 100% waiver on my tuition fees. Yes, it helped me a lot in preparation and teachers in FIITJEE Patna center were the best teachers in India. All India Test Series (AITS) of the FIITJEE is best for preparation for JEE Main.


Q 4. How did you manage JEE Main Preparation along with your Class 12th exam?

I forgot about JEE Main one month before the board examinations and only focused on the board examinations.


Q 5. What were your Strong and Weak areas? How did you prepare and what special efforts did you put for improving them?

My weakest subject was Chemistry. For preparation of Chemistry, I took extra class from my teacher to clear all my doubts.


Q 6. What mock papers did you take?

I took only FIITJEE mock papers (RTPF) which were given around 4 months before JEE Mains examination. I think those were sufficient for cracking JEE Main exam.


Q 7. Write some of the Preparation tips for someone who is starting 4 months before the exam?

All those who are starting 4 months before, don't have enough time. They must focus on solving numerical much more than reading new topics.


Q 8. Physics: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section.

For cracking JEE Main, H.C. Verma is the best book for theory knowledge. For numerical, solve numerical from HC Verma and DC Pandey and practice the study material provided by coaching. Many students waste their time by solving Irodov, but in my opinion Irodov is not necessary for JEE Main. If you want deep knowledge in particular topic then you can follow Irodov otherwise you can solve D.C. Pandey numerical of levels 2 or level 3.


Q 9. Chemistry: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section.

N.C.E.R.T is the best book for preparation of JEE Mains. You must solve numerical of this book and remember all content. After that, follow the study material provided by coaching. In my opinion, NCERT is sufficient for JEE Main examination mainly Organic and Physical Chemistry of NCERT is best. You can follow any book for Inorganic either your study material or any Arihant Publication book.


Q 10. Mathematics: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section.

For Mathematics, you need to focus on main topics such as Trigonometry, Co-ordinate Geometry, Calculus, Algebra, etc., I think Arihant Publications is sufficient and has good books for these topics such as S.L. Loney for Co-ordinate, S.K. Goyal for Algebra and much more. Both of these books are sufficient for Mathematics. Firstly, you must follow your coaching study material then try these books.


Q 11. What are the things you would like to go back in time and change to get into a better college?

Solving more numerical rather than deep studying a topic and stop wasting much time on small topics would make me to get into a better college than NIT Allahabad.
