Let’s have a look at the fool-proof STEP by STEP preparation strategy for preparing for the JEE Examination at home.

Step 1: Understand the syllabus and exam pattern

  • Before you start preparing, knowing what you have to study is the first step. Understanding the syllabus and exam pattern correctly will guide you to properly plan your preparation.
  • If you are aware of the amount of syllabus to be covered you can prepare a proper timetable to cover all the topics. You can check out the whole syllabus for JEE here. 
  • Understanding the exam pattern will keep you focused throughout your preparation as to the amount and type of questions you have to attempt in 3 hours. 
  • Section A of the JEE exam consists of 20 questions from each subject and Section B will consist of 10 questions of each subject and you have to attempt 5. The choice of 5 questions is very important.
  • Understanding dates and timelines are critical for you to plan your timetable and strategy.

EduRev has compiled the official notification in an easy way for you to understand. Check it out here. 

Step 2: Understand the Previous Year Questions(PYQs)


JEE Bible: 10 steps to clear JEE by Toppers (ranked under 100) - Notes | Study How to prepare for JEE - JEE

  • Once you’re through the syllabus, pick up the previous year's papers and skim through them to get an understanding of what is actually asked in the JEE Exam. 
  • Attempt a few previous year's question papers to know your weak and strong points. For example, you get to know the ratio of numerical and conceptual questions and you can plan your preparation accordingly. Also, check the weightage of various chapters/topics so that you can focus more important chapters with high weightage. Edurev has compiled question papers for Past Years, check them out here.
  • If you are starting early, cover difficult and scoring topics first and then study the easier topics. If you are on a deadline, cover the easier and scoring topics first.

 Step 3: Select the right course and reference books


JEE Bible: 10 steps to clear JEE by Toppers (ranked under 100) - Notes | Study How to prepare for JEE - JEE

Selecting the right course from the start is very important as it will shape your preparation. Select a course which provides you with all the necessary study material so that you don’t have to waste time searching for things.

  • Find a course that provides an explanation of the topics along with practice problems. 

  • A course that has revision notes, formula sheets, mind-maps for class 11 and mind-maps for class 12, previous year questions, mock tests and solutions to reference books is all you need.
  • Have confidence in the course selected and stick to it. If you keep on switching courses, it will lead to confusion.

  • Reference books should be kept limited to avoid stress and confusion.

 You must check out the course for preparation for the JEE exam on EduRev. It has videos, documents and notes to understand the concepts along with lots of practice problems. The link for the mind- maps is available here and for revision notes, check this link.

Step 4: A goal without a plan is just a wish

You have already selected your preferred course and reference books. You have also understood the syllabus and the exam pattern and now, you are ready to start studying. Directly jumping into the preparation without a plan will cost you double the effort. Therefore, it is important to have a plan and a set timetable to optimise your preparation.

  • Make a timetable so that you have sufficient time to learn all the concepts and practice them.

  • Divide time in such a way that you are able to cover all the subjects.

  • Always set aside a few hours for revision. 

  • Stick to the timetable to ensure self-discipline.

  • The sleep timings should be adequate. Reducing sleep will only reduce your productivity.

Step 5.3: How to Prepare for Chemistry?

The most important resource to prepare for chemistry is NCERT. It is imperative to study NCERT chemistry line by line. It is also important to study the chemistry lab manual as sometimes some questions may appear to be out of the syllabus but they are actually from the NCERT lab manual. EduRev provides NCERT textbooks, NCERT solutions and NCERT Exemplar in each chapter of the JEE course. EduRev provides complete chapter notes, quality videos, tests, revision notes, mind-maps, formula sheets and so much more on its course Chemistry for JEE.

(i) Organic Chemistry

  • Start with NCERT: You must cover the NCERT thoroughly and take notes to revise the chapter every now and then.

  • Named Reactions: In organic chemistry, you need to learn named reactions with their mechanisms. 

  • Understand the mechanisms: Instead of memorising the reactions, try to understand the mechanism of the reaction.

  • All the reactions covered in the NCERT should be at your fingertips. 

  • Important Topics: GOC, O-containing compounds, isomerism and hydrocarbons are very important topics. These topics must be practised more and more.

  • Practice test: After studying every chapter, solve the problems to get a better grasp of the concept.

(ii) Physical Chemistry

  • Solve and practice NCERT Questions: In Physical Chemistry, questions such as numerical questions are really important. You must solve NCERT intext questions and exercise questions properly before jumping onto PYQs. 

  • List of Formulas is important: You must prepare a list of all the formulae and revise them regularly. EduRev has compiled formula sheets for you, click here to check.

  • NCERT may not serve the whole purpose so you can also refer to some good books like RC Mukerjee and P. Bahadur. These books are available on EduRev.

  • Do or Die Chapters: Chapters like Thermodynamics and Redox reactions are very important, questions may come directly from here.

  • Practice tests: After studying every chapter, solve the problems to get a better grasp on the concept.

(iii) Inorganic Chemistry

  • NCERT is Important: NCERT is more than sufficient for your Inorganic chemistry portion. NCERT must be followed; good questions are framed from it; questions do not come from outside of NCERT; only NCERT-based questions are asked.

  • Do or Die Chapters: Chemical bonding and the periodic table account for half of the inorganic chemistry syllabus; revise them thoroughly through NCERT. Direct questions are asked from chapters like S and p blocks. You must learn their examples by heart. 

  • Practice tests: After studying every chapter, solve the problems to get a better grasp on the concept.

You can practice Previous Year questions of Chemistry chapters of the past 35 years on EduRev, check it out here.

  • Chapter-wise Test Practice: While preparing chapters in Chemistry, you can give chapter-wise tests as well as topic-wise tests for a better understanding of your weak and strong areas. EduRev has approximately 200-300 questions compiled in its tests for each chapter. You can practice from tons of questions given in each chapter at EduRev at this link.

Once you have covered the whole syllabus and you have practised enough questions, it is time to amp up your revision game. You should start revision at least 2 months before the exam. You should start attempting mock tests for the following reasons.

  • Boost confidence: Practising questions make you confident and give a real picture of how much syllabus have you covered precisely. 
  • Time Management: In the JEE exam, managing time is the most vital task and you can not overlook it. Practising mock tests make your time management skills stronger. You can practice mock tests on the EduRev platform, by clicking here.
  • Makes you Proactive: Mock tests come to the rescue when an exam is on the verge. Mock tests give you a complete feel for the real exam and prepare you accordingly. Mock questions are the most effective way to prepare for an exam.You must check mock-tests available on EduRev. Mock tests are available here.

Step 7: Analyse your performance

  • Analyze the test: After taking a mock test, the most important thing to do is analyze it. It is more important to analyze the test than it is to take the test. Taking a practice test will not help you improve your grades. You must figure out your personal error bandwidth, as well as how many mistakes you made while guessing an answer, how many silly mistakes you made, and how many questions you skipped. You will find the solution if you correct these errors. Every step matters, so consider what you should do to improve your score on the next test.

  • Look over the solutions: The next step is to thoroughly review the mock test solutions. Surprisingly, after giving a mock test, many students ignore the solutions, defeating the purpose of the test. Don't make the same blunder. Carefully and patiently go over the solutions. While working through the solutions, you will be learning how to apply problem-solving theory, which is a crucial skill for passing the JEE exam.

Step 8: Tips to avoid silly mistakes

Silly mistakes can cost you that seat in your favourite college/university. Therefore, it is important to prevent such mistakes from happening.

  • While practising numerical problems, try to avoid silly mistakes by reading the question properly and by noting down the numerical figures properly. 
  • While practising do not use a calculator as you should build a habit to do calculations on your own. This will improve your calculating speed and accuracy. 
  • In section B of the exam, you have a choice to select 5 questions out of 10 questions. Select questions which have fewer calculations so that you can avoid losing marks because of calculation mistakes.

Step 9: One month before the exam

  • Mocks, Mocks, Mocks – Put Quality over Quantity:
    Try to solve mock tests effectively. Don't try to solve numerous questions instead focus on the quality of the questions you solved. After attempting questions, always check for the answers and if your answer is incorrect, understand the answer and see where you were going wrong.
  • Revisit the formulae. It does help: Revisit the piece of paper where you listed all the formulas and short notes and revise them daily, no matter what! Learn all the basics. 
  • Revise what you have learned. Do not go for new topics: Now is the time to get better at things that you are already good at and dump the things that you are poor at. Revise the stuff you are comfortable with.

Step 10: One day before the exam

  • Stay relaxed- It is important to stay relaxed the day before the exam and to get proper sleep.
  • Know the actual location of your JEE exam centre.  Otherwise, you can wind up wasting a lot of time on exam day searching for the exam centre. This could cause a delay in getting there and cause a lot of trouble.
  • Eat healthy food and sleep as early as possible.
