There’s a lot of literature out there to attempt to guide you on ‘how to crack the IIT JEE’. Much like anything else on the internet, it becomes an information overload.

Here at i30, we take pride in the fact that we have some of the most reputed and highly trained faculty with in-depth courseware, utilising the convenience of modern technology, via our IIT JEE preparation app. Now once your course is selected, here are a few habits you must inculcate to give yourself the best shot at cracking that test.
- Start before hand
It’s never hurt anyone to be prepared. Start your preparations as early as you possibly can as that will surely give you an edge over the rest.
- Time management
It’s imperative to plan your days down to the tee. Allow study for 12-14 hours a day and fill the remaining time with sleep, meals, exercise, etc. Fine tune and optimise to the full extent.
- Self discipline
Procrastination should never creep in. Acquire the mindset that this is a serious matter and you have no choice but to be disciplined about it. Don’t get carried away by distractions around you; be it your phone, TV, etc.
- Smart reading
As you’re probably well aware of, there’s a plethora of books out there that you might consider. It could be something your friend suggested or you saw online. It’s important to not get overwhelmed by this and consult your teaching faculty for the best way forward.
- Learn, don’t memorise
A big mistake people make is to blindly try to memorise the syllabus. While this might work in a few cases, it’s surely not the right way to do it. Instead, understand the concepts and keep asking doubts whenever you’re stuck. Doing this might take a bit longer but that information is bound to stick with you.
- Treat yourself
Positive reinforcement is crucial to steady progress. Set yourself manageable goals and work hard to attain it. Once you do, give yourself a little treat and then get back to work. This will act as a positive association to your brain and make your job of preparation that much easier.
This is paramount but often overlooked. Very often, students will spend sleepless nights in preparation, skipping meals, exercise, etc. This can be one of the most damaging things you could do to yourself. Your body needs its share of rest and recuperation. Without it, it’s never going to be at its optimum. Take care of your mental and physical health to begin with and work your schedule around it.
With these handy tips, you’ll be well on your way to achieving that ultimate goal of cracking the JEE. Have a look at i30’s highly acclaimed online IIT JEE online coaching platform, for a smarter approach to preparations.
