JEE or Joint Entrance Examination is the largest engineering entrance exam which occurs both in online and offline mode. Huge number of students participates in the exam every year with a dream of cracking JEE. However, the biggest challenge is to manage time to study for board exams and JEE together. So, when JEE is knocking at your door, don’t get frightened and start your preparation in full swing from today onwards; make best possible utilization of every second. It is better to the start the preparation with NCERT books. They help in forming good conceptual base and are easy to understand.

Here are some tips that will help in simplifying your JEE 2018  preparation plans to cover the syllabus in minimum time.

  • All the 3 subjects i.e. Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics are equally important and you have to work sufficiently on each of them. When you are competent enough to solve the questions from all the three subjects, try to gain expertise on your strongest part/ favourite area.
  • At this crucial time when you have limited time in hand for JEE 2018, you should proceed with revision of the covered syllabus, rather than trying to learn some new topics for completing the syllabus.
  • Don’t study in a haphazard manner. Try to plan out your study keeping in mind the time available and the topics to cover in the given time frame. For example: If you have 30 days, then you have about 10 days for each subject. Now according to your comfort zone, you can choose any of these three formats and decide to allot time to each chapter based on its length and time on hand:
    1. You can study the 3 subjects daily by dividing the total study time  or
    2. You can study a particular subject for 1 or 2 days and change the subject after that. or
    3. You can even plan studying 3 subjects in a week (2 days each) and revise on the 7th day. Quick revision is possible, if you form a habit of noting main points in a separate sheet while studying.


    As all the subjects are important, you can’t concentrate on only 1. All of them need equal concentration. Aspirants must prepare thoroughly from the NCERTs textbooks.


    • Note down the formulae and results, it will help during revision.
    • Practice as many questions as you can, keeping in mind the availability of time.
    • Avoid lengthy and complicated problems at the last minute, if time is limited.
    • Focus on your strong areas.
