Cracking JEE Mains is every engineering aspirant’s dream. It is the gateway to the IITs. There is always a lot of hype about this examination. Although the syllabus is tough, it is not uncrackable. The main reason for the exam being so hard to crack is the competition around it. Around 11 lakh, five thousand students took up the JEE entrance test in 2018. Only 2,20,000 students qualified for the JEE Advanced exam in the same year. This is less than five percent of the registered students. This fierce competition is why students are expected to stay on their toes. Here are a few tips on how you can effectively manage time.

Create a study plan:

Create an effective, efficient and well-thought study plan. The plan should be made keeping strengths and weaknesses in mind. You can also break the monotony by watching video lectures available on various online platforms like i30. Your study plan must incorporate break sessions because your brain needs time to relax and register information.

Follow through:

Creating a plan and not executing it is of no use. You have to follow through. Ensure you always stick to the plan. You are the owner of your mind, so don’t let external pressure or influencers dictate your mind. Following through is always difficult in the beginning. Make sure you put in that extra effort to follow through in the beginning and before you know it, it becomes a part of your routine.

Practice tests:

In order to crack JEE, you must know the kind of questions that will be asked for you to prepare effectively. Taking practice tests will help you know the difficulty level of the exam and in the process, will help you realize your strengths and weaknesses. This will help you plan your study sessions more effectively. Solving problems will increase your computational ability and thereby save time when solving numericals in exams.

Mock Tests:

Mock tests are created to give the feel of an actual test. These timed tests help you assess how well your time is managed. These timed tests help create the exact pressure you would be facing in the examination. This can be used to assess the number of questions answered in the stipulated time. If that is low, appropriate steps can be taken to make this better.  

To conclude, time management is one of the most important aspects that have to be mastered before taking up JEE. This exam tests your time management skills along with the subject knowledge you possess in each of the topics. Time management ability doesn’t come to you immediately. It comes with a lot of practice and dedication. It might sound hard and overwhelming, but the right attitude and approach makes it easier to crack this exam.
