How to prepare for JEE Main in Next 3 Months

How to prepare for JEE Main in Next 3 Months

Now that we’re left with 3 Months in hand – Jan, Feb, Mar it’s time to create a schedule for the next 3 months and follow it religiously. We at Merit Store have created a simple timetable for the next 3 months. You can exclude the month of boards and follow  this schedule for 2 months if you are not a dropper.

Monthly Timetable

Put in at least 2 hours a day for each subject as mentioned below. If you can put in 3 hours (most recommended) per subject, then it would be better for your score. Spend these 2-3 hours for solving MCQS since you now have only 3 months to prepare.

Remember that this is going to be difficult to follow if you lose track midway. And you should be willing to study at all times because if you miss it out this month, you are going to ask next month “How to prepare for JEE in 2 months”. We hope that you remain on track this month and just get it done !

Revise Theory or Practice Sums ?

Well, the answer to this at this stage would be practice sums. You might be anxious about your theory revision but you are not alone. Most students do select theory revision over sums practice because theory revision is easy. But if you want an edge over the competition the right thing to do is practice.

If Revision is your primary focus, then you will never finishing studying for JEE Main examination. You not only have to revise the syllabus, but more importantly the application of it to problem solving. That is why, it is a better approach to solve MCQs and then revise the concept behind the question.

Also, by going through the solutions, you will be revising or learning the application of these concepts.

Mock Tests

Solving full testimonial portions as well as previous year’s papers is going to be very important for you. In the month of March, you must push in these mock tests (at least 1 in a day) along with the normal schedule given above. In fact you can reduce the time alloted for normal schedule and allot more time for mock tests.

Important Chapters

Short of time for preparing for JEE Main? You should go for important chapters first. If you feel lazy about studying all chapters, then important chapters are surely going to help. You may also replace the above timetable with a timetable that includes only important chapters. (Note: Important Chapters have been given more importance in the above timetable)

All the Best for your JEE Main!

    Do i need to cover each and every chapter of each subject to ace through mains with 270?
    If no then how many can i aspire to get in mains if i leave some topics all of which are not tagged important in your list
