When the JEE mains’ results are published, there is always a two page spread in the newspaper, honoring students who attended IIT JEE coaching classes and secured an admirable rank. The shining faces of proud students who are delighted their hard work paid off is a sight to behold. Cracking the JEE mains exam is not easy. But it is a simple and straightforward solution – determination, perseverance, and hard work.
It’s essential to establish a goal when you set out to qualify for an exam as competitive as this. Ask yourself what you want to achieve by writing the test? Do you hope to earn a coveted seat at one of the prestigious IITs? Do you want to specialize in a branch of technology that only IITs and NITs in India are fluent in? Do you want to dedicate your career to research and developing new technology with generous funds backing your research?
By asking yourself these questions, you will be able to see your goal much more clearly in your mind. This can help you stay motivated. But now that you have your goal in sight, it’s time to find the right path.
The path can only be built by hard work and studying. But everyone has different methods of learning. While school is essential and should always be the priority of any student, a student hoping to get into IIT needs to be ready to put in the extra effort.
The JEE Mains and JEE advanced are especially notorious for their technical questions and roundabout way of phrasing problems. The exam has been designed, so they sieve out only the best of the best from the lakhs of hopefuls who attend the exam every year. So how do you get the upper hand in this highly competitive test?
- Join IIT JEE coaching classes
Students as young as fourteen years old have begun to attend coaching classes to get a head start on their college career. Although most of the material applicants will be tested on are a part of the school syllabus, IIT JEE coaching classes are taught to help students apply the theory taught in schools to the technical application-level questions of the JEE exams.
- Be regular to class
Unlike schools, coaching classes do not have the luxury of seven hours a day, five days a week, to extensively cover portions. IIT JEE coaching classes are scheduled in the evening or on the weekends. This makes each class that much more important as the teachers are likely to cover vast topics in a couple of hours. It should also be mentioned that the topics covered are incredibly relevant to the papers. Extra information that may not have been taught in class would also be discussed. For these reasons, it’s essential to attend as many classes as you can. If, for any reason, you find yourself unable to attend class, ask a friend what you missed and try to go through the material on your own. If you have any doubts, don’t shy away from asking your teachers for further clarification. The teachers are there to help you, and you shouldn’t keep any doubts to yourself.
- Study on your own
In coaching classes, you learn. In school, you learn. What you do at home and on your own is known as studying. Everyone has their methods of studying, whether that is extensive note-taking, reading the course material, or watching videos to get a better grasp of the concept. Balancing school, coaching, and the other social niceties that come with being a student is tough. Often students complain of there not being enough hours in the day to deal with their heavy workload. This is where the distinction of time and effectiveness comes into play. It’s imperative to make sure that when you sit down to study, you are focused on what you are covering. If you are not focused, it doesn’t matter if you burn the midnight oil. Stowing away all your electronics and finding yourself a distraction-free area to call your study space comes highly recommended.
If you have the determination, you can easily crack the JEE exam. It just takes a little hard work.
