Understanding your Syllabus:
Aspirants like you are already aware of JEE exam syllabus and that’s fundamentally a great approach to kick-start your preparation. If you already know the topics that you need to cover under Chemistry, Physics or Mathematics, you can chart out the focus points for yourself. Use post notes and mark the topics that still debilitate you.
Practice Makes Perfect:
Mock tests of JEE exams can be availed of, you should keep practicing. Entri has tons of mock tests curated for you covering a range of different topics. You can take unlimited mock tests with the feel of the real exam. Sitting through that emulated feeling of what the real exam entails will rid you of any unnecessary anxieties.
Take Advantage of Personal Notes and Flashcards:
You should always keep a journal to yourself and make notes whenever you feel the need to jot something down. You can also take the help of flashcards and quizzes available in Entri to improve on areas you feel you are weak. Read the concept, break it down into its integral parts, and articulate it in your words – with flowcharts, tables or words. Revising with your self-articulated materials will give you an edge in the exam. It is undeniably a great last-minute preparation strategy. Personal notes are preferred as an alternative since it seems to create a prolonged picture inside your memory – helps you retain the concept faster.
Take Care of your Mental and Physical Health:
Lockdown can be harsh for those of us who aren’t fortunate to share healthy interpersonal dynamics with their family. It can get increasingly difficult to create a healthy space, enough to start on with your preparation without any inhibitions. So, you should responsibly navigate the space and since you are not being able to go out, take up certain exercises. Give yourself a break from time to time. Take the weekends off, catch up on your favourite show or read a book. Once you feel healthy, you can do what you need – prepare for your dream.
But you must follow all the health guidelines provided by the government official and be responsibly isolated for your own sake. Let’s cling on to hope and focus on achieving your dreams.
