How to prepare for IIT JEE when you have only 4 months in your hand!

First of all, the day one started when you thought of preparing for the I.I.T. , and been a even a little serious about cracking the IIT JEE

Then he/she always knew that this time was going to come. So, nothing much unexpected!

O.K. So, let's try to analyze our situation. We have 4 months in hand that is some 120 odd days to ourselves.

Let the aspirants be assured that this is more than the time required.

It is the beginning of December; therefore the student would have covered at least 75 percentage of the prescribed course for the J.E.E. at least once by now, be it through self study or through some coaching. So, by now, the aspirant has covered most part of the syllabus. It's the brush-up time.

Now, we have two tasks.

Task One: To brush up and keep brushing up whatever has been learnt so far.

Task Two: To add the extra 25 percent of the course that is left.

Let us decide that we need to cover up the entire syllabus' revision in 75 days. The aspirant would have been taking tests and revising different topics at different times now and then. But, this time, let us assume this is your LAST time.

Therefore this time, the student should go through all the reading material/notes that he/she has been following all year long, THOROUGHLY not missing absolutely anything.

First of all, divide your vast syllabus into everyday task. Cover at least one heavy topic each day. When we talk about covering, we mean EVERYTHIING you need to know about that topic in order to be able to solve the problems, including notes, examples, some problems that you came across while studying it for the first time.

If possible, add a small topic to some days when one topic is not very big. The idea is not to let yourself excessively loose, nor should your time-table be very squeezed. This division of each day syllabus is the crucial-most step of the bigger plan. Keep it such, so that the pressure is JUST RIGHT.

It would be better if you would mix the subjects that is do Physics for two-three days, then, may be shift to some topic of Chemistry or Math. This would help keeping things not-exhausting.

Now, once you have brushed up a topic, solve some random problems from a book specifically on that topic.

Now the most important task during all this is to mark the examples or formulae you find difficult to remember.

REMEMBER, these should not be too large in number. Most of them should be covered considering this as THE LAST revision.

All this time, when we have been brushing up the older topics, remember that the newer topics that are now being taught need to be kept track of.

During all this, try to regularly take tests on weekly or biweekly basis, and only one thing needs to be made sure that you do the topics you have revised till the test date, well. So, by the end of this phase one, your syllabus is complete for once and for all!

NOW, EVEN IF ONE ASKS YOU TO WRITE THE EXAMINATION THE 76th DAY ITSELF, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO AT LEAST SAY "YES".

Remember that even if this period goes to 80 days, it is perfectly fine.

Alright now, we have around a month (+ 10 days) left. This needs to be utilized in practicing problems, on all topics and within time limit. Solve, two test papers each day within time and analyze your errors that may have stayed after Phase one.

Every day, the idea is to exactly point them out and GET RID OF THEM. It can be a forgettable formula, a sign convention mistake, an individually weak topic particularly for you or anything for that matter. JUST GET RID OF IT.

During Phase Two, try to stay in continuous touch with the topics like inorganic and organic chemistry and other such topics.

After Phase Two, if you have followed the routine sincerely enough, you are ready for any Engineering Examination.

This Phase two has to be summed up 2-3 days before the Examination. For these last days, just take enough sleep, and take healthy food.

Lastly, this be mentioned that whatever strategy has been suggested above is just one way to prepare. There are a lot of them and one can follow any of them.
