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

Ans. I joined Narayna Coaching Institute in my hometown in Dhanbad. The coaching brings about the best in a student with the condition he keeps the coaching studies on track. On my part, I would say keeping pace with the coaching and balancing school is the key to crack the exam. Few points to see is that the same faculty teaches you throughout as the question comes by combining two-three modules ( Mostly in physics). The coaching gives us time for introspection and practice. Don't keep judging the faculty, he is not a God, whatever coaching one is going he should the major push will be from the student side not the coaching side.

Here some other Tips to crack JEE MAIN 2017 Exam

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

Ans. 7

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

Ans. I did schooling and coaching both nearby my house, kept my health good which was a major factor to avoid harassment. I kept myself cool and confident which I think is a major factor of critical thinking required for the exam. Being an average student I kept coaching and school studies separate, at the end of each topic(both from school and coaching) I amalgamated the both so that its finished overall. Focusing on speed and performance was a step later implemented as I gained up speed with time. In these exams speed is a necessity but one should first solve myriad of questions to gain confidence and not worry about speed, when you gain confidence speed comes gifted

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

Ans. I was good in physics and Mathematics, weak in chemistry as it involved a bit of mugging up. The topics in which one is weak should be dealt separately, find out exactly where is the root problem. Weakness is mostly in some topics not all, find out the nuances and search for the solution from your guide/faculty. I was weak in Organic (some topics) and Probability (in Mathematics) and other small topics in which every student faces problems. I spent two-three continuous days on the same topic and removed the blemish and made notes about it for future reference. Making notes in such issues helped me. The ones in which I was strong I practiced them on a weekly basis so that the confidence isn't lost. Save 2-3 months before the exam so that you give a vulture look to all assets you've gained in two years. Choose and strike on the ones in which you feel duress to practice. Don't leave anything to luck and chance from your side.

Ques. What mock papers did you take?

Ans. I took my coaching mock tests. (Narayana) and resonance mock test, I also looked what questions are being asked in other test series. Brilliant tutorial ones are also good. Whatever mock test one takes the aim should not be getting a good rank in the test as the real competition is too big, just get to know where you lack and where you lead and make amendments accordingly and ameliorate.

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

Ans. The basis of this subject is to understand the concept. Read the book HC Verma like a bible. I have an emotional attachment with this book, for supplements one can refer DC Pandey books (Arihant Publications). Introspect what you exactly learnt from each topic and how it can be framed in a question. Try to question yourself after learning a topic and find solutions for the same from apt resources (like faculty/online/friends). Gaining speed in problems of physics takes time for an average student; correctly comprehending the situation in question is the key. Don't start mugging up formulae for every topic. Try to solve the question by using Calculus wherever possible, it gives more clarity to the thinking. Topics in physics are related starting form vectors to SHM and waves in mechanics make sure you are able to connect all of them. Similar strategy should be in other modules. Modern Physics is a scoring section, people repulse them from it, but it’s better to attack and finish it off.

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

Ans. Being weak in Chemistry always troubled me. I have used many resources to crack the problems but a simple strategy in chemistry to finish the NCERT Books first. Mostly questions are framed revolving in topics given in NCERT, one can find a lot of topics which are not mentioned in NCERT and those don't actually come in JEE, it may come in other entrance exams and test series. I would like to explain the strategy separately for each section
Physical Chemistry: This will be the most conceptual in terms of solving numeric questions. If you are good at Mathematics you will get through it easily. The concepts are quite simple starting from 'Mole Concept'. Question from this topic are rare in exam but it’s the base for physical chemistry, one can refer books other than NCERT in this for understanding and do solve the problems given at the end of NCERT, they have quality.
Inorganic Chemistry: Just make notes from NCERT keep mugging it up, make sure you are acquainted about each and every line. Must see previous year JEE questions and make note out of it.

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

Ans. Mathematics will have huge level difference between boards and JEE. For basics one should focus in coaching classes, few people are naturally good in Mathematics so they have an added advantage, but its not thing to worry about .Calculus and Coordinates are the major challenge, so it’s better to gain confidence in them to gain confidence in Mathematics, start from low level problems in RS Aggarwal book and simultaneously keep peeping in Arihant Publications books find the similarity and differences. Start from scratch and reach a good level is the key. Solving time-taking subjective questions in Arihant book's example to understand the topic's depth (such question will not come though). Strike on the objective pattern once you are good at subjective part. Keep Mathematics in constant practice, you may leave physics and chemistry un-touched for a week but the doing same with Mathematics will suck confidence.

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

Ans. On my part I feel I did what I had to, I don't regret for things. But I think I lost focus in between sometimes due to change in surroundings, i.e. friends and relationships. I feel they are a part of life but balancing them with my studies was rough. At this age of 17-18 years one is gaining maturity and distractions are bound to happen. In order to make the commitment to your studies reap fruits one should balance things other than studies too or simply be a saint and refrain from such things.


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

Ans. According to me, a four month preparation for JEE MAIN should be only on the Board syllabus. Chemistry should be the target subject as it is the one which has most common elements in Boards and JEE. One should not try to bridge the gap (which is unique to everybody) between boards and JEE. Focus only on the strong topics one knows and the easy ones. Take a low level book for building confidence and if possible try to connect to JEE level only in the topics one finds easy, leave the rest.
