IIT JEE Advanced fast preparation tips: Preparing for the JEE Advanced exam will be one of the most rewarding things for your career and days to come. Having strong basics in Physics, Maths and Chemistry can really open up a lot of avenues for you in the future.

Time Management in IIT JEE Advanced fast preparation tips:

  • There is a difference between sitting with a book 18 hours a day and actually studying 18 hours a day. And you don’t want to sit with a book 18 hours a day you need to put your time to good use as it is limited.
  • Managing your time over the next 2 years / or 1 year is the most crucial thing that you need to focus on. Not only this, you also need to manage your time during the 3 hours of your actual JEE Main / Advanced exam.
  • Here are the 5 key mantras of Time Management for JEE Exam Preparation:

a) Complete the most important tasks first

  • Studying that one chapter in say, Organic Chemistry is more important now than checking out what is the latest movie release or iPhone game on the block.
  • Once you have done the important task first, you will have a sense of accomplishment and that will lead you to the next important task.

b) Learn to Say NO to friends & family

  • Its not cutting yourself off from your friends or family while you prepare for the JEE.
  • There will always be that friend who tried to distract you from your preparation, tell them a polite NO!
  • Friends and family are always going to be around but if you lose these valuable two years of preparation,  you are not going to get this time back either. So, you decide!

c) Don’t procrastinate and aim for incremental improvement.

  • When we put that out 1% more effort every day, our progress can grow by 3800% in one single year.
  • When we slack off 1% every day, we do not progress, rather we push ourselves to failure!
  • If you do not like a subject then do not waste time by postponing it, take steps towards studying it and gradually you will become a master!

d) Turn important tasks into habits – 

  • There is a well known theory that for any task to become a habit you need to do it for 21 days at stretch, and it will eventually become a habit – be it a good habit or a bad habit.
  • Make it a habit of revising important formulae and concepts in the morning, especially those which you studied the previous day. Follow this tip and it will work wonders.

e) Set a time duration to everything you do

  • Our brain is a funny object! If you tell it that you have just 1 hour to study a chapter, it will give you reverse feedback and make sure that you finish it in not more than an hour.
  • However, if you set aside 4 hours for something that could be done easily in 1 hour, our brain will be slow in that process and it will end up making you take those 4 hours to complete the task – what a waste of time.
