IIT-JEE, the most desired entrance exam in the country has been in the news for quite some time now because of the changes in its pattern. There will be two exams – JEE Mains followed by JEE Advanced. The time gap between the two will be three to four weeks.
JEE Main, which is equivalent to AIEEE will be conducted by CBSE. JEE Advanced, equivalent to IIT-JEE will be conducted by IITs with the same composition as at present. The IITs and the Joint Admission Board (JAB) have clarified that the format of the JEE-Advanced paper will be the same as that of IIT-JEE.
How to prepare for the exam?
- Students seriously aspiring for success with a good rank in the IITs understand the importance of starting early in their preparation for IIT-JEE. As the JEE becomes more competitive now, it is necessary to build a strong base in fundamentals, as early as possible. Coaching institutes’ early edge programmes are designed to give students that extra advantage that can help them get a top rank in IIT-JEE.
- IIT-JEE requires an analytical approach and it is quite different from normal studies. We have seen that students, who do extremely well in the admission tests of coaching centres, thereby demonstrating potential for IIT-JEE and have the ability to take on the rigours of IIT-JEE preparation, come out with top ranks in the entrance examination.
- Remember Class 11 and 12 Board examination syllabi for Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics are more or less same as that for IIT-JEE. The difference lies only in the approach. If you have thoroughly prepared for IIT-JEE, with a little extra effort, you are bound to do extremely well in Class 11 final and Class 12 Board examination too. However, vice-versa is not necessarily true. Even if you have prepared very well for a topic from Class 11 and 12 examination point of view, you will still need an intense effort to make sure that your preparation is adequate to make a winning attempt in IIT-JEE.
