There is not even a month remaining now for IIT JEE 2012 that falls on Sunday, April 8, 2012. And students attempting this year must be getting advice from lot of people on how to prepare for IIT JEE in last one month. While writing this article, I just did a search and found many articles providing tips and tricks on the same. So there are ten different sources telling you ten different things. Confused, yeah?
Well, here are my two cents – dont listen to them fully. Because nobody knows how you should prepare better than yourself. While these might be of some help, one size does not fit all and these general purpose advices / tips might not be for you. Being said that, I will just list down some points that will help you creating a strategy to leverage maximum out of these days -
1. Compose yourself – Take stock of the situation. List down what topics you have covered, what you have not covered etc. Draw a rough map on topics with your strong points and weak points. Spend around an hour to do this, and I am sure this introspection will help you create a better plan for next few days.
2. Create a plan – So now you have assessed the situation and you know the number of days you have got. Now create a plan. Do you want to focus on revision? Definitely you should. Do you want to grasp something new you havent covered yet? Slightly risky, but it depends on where you are. Or you just want to attempt mock test papers/ IIT JEE previous question papers? Balance between these three activities based on your comfort level and create a time plan for yourself.
3. Chill a bit – I missed out one more activity in the point 2 above. And this one is very important. As the exam time approaches, you should relax your schedule and have good sleep. Think like this, you need to keep the best for the final day and your brain has to be at its best on that day. So do take this into account while creating a time plan for yourself. The last thing you want to do is stress yourself.
So these were my two cents. And all the best for the IIT JEE 2012.
