With only a few days to prepare, you must plan carefully so that you can cover the entire syllabus right before the exam. Take a look at last month preparation tips for JEE advanced:
Plan it out:
It is always a better idea to plan your studies before. Although only planning does not help if you cannot execute it properly, try to put small goals so that the execution becomes easy. It is crucial to plan your studies by making short term goals for the next 2-3 days only. Don’t plan for the next 2 weeks or 1 month. Very rarely, these long goals get executed as planned. Make targets for what you want to cover in the next 2-3 days and try to follow and achieve them with your best efforts.
Know the pattern and syllabus:
Understanding the pattern and syllabus of the exam is very crucial for any entrance examination. When you are familiar with the weightage of even a single mark, marking scheme, questions weightage and types of questions, you can push your preparation in the right direction. When you are this close to the exam, preparing beyond the scope of the syllabus will not help you. Thus, following the prescribed syllabus is sufficient to crack the exam.
Solve previous papers:
Try to solve as many question banks and previous years’ question papers as you can to get an idea of the paper pattern. Solving old papers will help you become self-aware of the question patterns and improve your performance. It can also help you understand the difficulty level of the exam.
Assessment and review:
You must acquaint yourself with the online mode of the examination and practice the same by solving online mock tests to become exam ready. With the help of these tests, you can improve your speed and accuracy. You can also analyse your preparation level and assess yourself to find your weaknesses and strengths.
Practice and revise:
When you are weeks away from the examination, 'practice and revise' should become your Mantra. Try using different approaches to practice and revise. You can make concept maps of each subject for quick revisions. Using flashcards and diagrams can also aid in improving memory and remembering the concepts, formulas, and facts effectively. Taking JEE Advanced mock tests is also a good tool to get used to the exam pattern, type of question, difficulty level of exam, revise and recall the learnt concepts.
Stay fit and focused:
The preparation process tends to drain students. So, while you work hard, it is essential to take small breaks and recharge yourself. Apart from studying you must also maintain good health. Taking at least six hours of sleep is advisable. Try to maintain good hygiene and have a proper diet. You cannot afford to fall sick and lose your focus as this is the time to give your best. So, don’t forget to look after your physical health and mental health.
Refresh yourself and relax:
While it is important to practice and revise during the last month of your exam, it is equally crucial to refresh your mind and body with some recreational activity like taking a walk or playing for at least 30 mins. You can also perform yoga or meditation in order to relax and maintain focus.
It is always better to keep a positive attitude while preparing in the last month of the exam and keep the above tips in mind to help you in planning for the remaining few days of the examination.
