How to Prepare for IIT JEE Advanced 2018 - Tips & Study Plan

Your stature in JEE Advanced Preparation rises when your approach towards the examination is solid, focused & directional.

JEE is most sought-after engineering entrance exam & Preparation for JEE Advanced 2018 can be incredibly hard when you’re missing some critical strategies needed to succeed.

Most of the Candidates are so engrossed in the preparation of JEE Mains Exam that they can’t see Advanced JEE coming until it hits the D-day.

To be honest, you can prepare for JEE Mains & Advanced altogether. But these two-tier exams are held separately for a reason. Check JEE Advanced 2018 Study Plan. (Link will be Activated Soon)

While the aim of JEE Main Exam is to ensure that the candidate has complete knowledge of the concept of 11th & 12th PCM subjects, JEE Advanced is tougher. There is some difference in the syllabus of JEE Mains & Advanced Exam.

We all know (and wish were not true sometimes), mastering an engineering entrance exam doesn’t happen overnight.

Here are five golden rules for success in JEE Advanced 2018:

  • JEE Advanced is an upgraded level of JEE Main. So, go ahead and dust off the Best Books for JEE Advanced. Sign up for the JEE Advanced preparation lessons and achieve great score.
  • Preparing your own notes is very important. Create notes after second or third reading of the chapter. When you have a collection of subject-wise notes all in one place. All in all, taking notes is a subtle, but powerful, way to make yourself more successful in learning & memorizing.
  • If you’re a visual thinker, try a mind map for preparing the notes. Start by writing the topic at the center of the page. From there, draw branches out to every key topic studied.
  • Without regular practice, the slip from Master to Journeyman is too easy. Practicing same concepts & topics again & again might be painful, but it preserves & build your preparation.
  • Prepare for Exam as per the latest JEE Advanced 2018 Pattern & Syllabus.

Think about it!

You solve 20 questions daily & you are content with your preparation level.

But, on the exam day, you’ll get two papers with 54 questions each.

And, you’ll have to solve the paper in 3 hours or less!

Get the Point!

If you set your preparation level optimal & practice a mock test that matches the difficulty level of the exam, you won’t be sweaty & anxious on the day of the Exam.

Better prepared than sorry...

That’s how you can be among the only 6% of people who crack JEE Advanced Exam.
