Top 7 tips to Crack JEE Mains
Compiling some of the words of wisdom, here are some JEE mains tricks to crack the 2020 examination.
Focus determines the reality
Keep the mind high no matter what. Focus on the dreams and lose the distractions. There are quite some ways to keep yourself away from achieving the dream. Let not the focus be diverted by the games or social media or the binge-watching.
The Study material is your Study Partner
A study material essentially need not boil down to pages of printed words. A study plan of timeline and resources makes the best of study material. Greediness in learning from too many sources might only leave anxiety behind.
Clinging onto your desk and bed while preparing might feel like bucking up for war without weapons. As much as you choose a course or institute, don’t forget to choose a healthy study group. Learning and a little bit of teaching are always good for everyone.
Yes, you need sleep and food! Always!
While sprinting takes huge efforts in a short span, running a marathon requires a lot more. In terms of body and mind, the fuel to run this marathon is good food and good sleep. Losing out on either makes you biologically weak. Stay healthy and stay competitive.
Overthinking = Useless anxiety
This self-destructing weapon will not only increase the pressure but also at times takes over the master in charge. There are going to be failures and success in every walk of life. Anticipating and overthinking will only lead to anxiety that doesn’t allow to focus.
Befriend the foe
The exam is the foe here. Know the pattern and solve previous year papers and mock tests available online to know what is in front. Identifying key topics, and some tricks to solve them is an analogy to practicing into perfection
Strike the iron when it is hot
