IIT JEE (a.k.a. JEE Advanced) - A quest for excellence

For those who are not Indians, let me give a brief outline about what IIT JEE really means... It is actually an entrance exam, for admission into the most premier engineering institutes of India - Indian institutes of technology (IITs). JEE stands for joint entrance examination. By many, it is considered to be one of the most competitive and difficult exams in the world. every year, several lac Indian students appear for the examination, and only about 2% of them make it through. The reason i am writing all this on brilliant is simply that IIT JEE has a lot to do with mathematics, physics and chemistry. If you just go through the previous years papers of the exam, you will find really tough problems, especially in math and physics. the students who pass the exam are Olympiad toppers, and some of them go on to become professors at prestigious research institutes like princeton, harvard, MIT, stanford etc. If any IIT student or alumni is present on brilliant, then please do join the discussion and share their JEE experience...... BEST OF LUCK TO EVERYONE FOR JEE ADVANCE UPCOMING SUNDAY....

I would rather say "Self-Study is the best study!" Just buy the proper pcm books ,bunk college, no classes then you easily get 10hrs a day to study then watch a movie,fb or even cricket,football,etc. Studying seriously after 11th Diwali vacs is also enough!! always b confident. There are also other good colleges than IIT....If u have the talent you'll go anyway...or even after studying the hell out you may not be selected.....so just take it easy, relax n enjoy your life for getting into IIT does not ensure you happiness....at the most money!

I wrote JEE way back in 2008. No prelims or advanced back then. Just 1 exam - 2 papers. I had a decorated profile with Olympiads, state level awards, etc. I went to the exam hall with confidence and 2 years of sincere preparation. Exam pressure can make people crazy (not talking about malpractice). I performed way below my level, but managed cleared with AIR 1432. I graduated from Dept. of Aerospace Engg., IIT Madras in 2012. I'm currently pursuing MBA in MDI Gurgaon and I wish to earn Ph.D in Maths or Stats from a prestigious institute. Naveen Mathew · 3 years, 3 months ago

@Naveen Mathew so now i am 11th state board can i cope up with their portions?????? Saravanan Rajenderan · 3 years, 3 months ago

Log in to reply

@Saravanan Rajenderan State board is generally considered disadvantageous. However, I feel all boards are equal. The key to success in JEE is hard work. Nobody can attempt all questions and score 100% in the given time. Negative marking scheme also adds to it. Therefore, exam strategy is very important. Work hard and attempt mock tests in timely manner. Nothing is impossible. PS: I like state board syllabus more than CBSE Naveen Mathew · 3 years, 3 months ago

@Naveen Mathew so preparing from home with the jee book is preferable????? or i need to go any courses Saravanan Rajenderan · 3 years, 3 months ago

Log in to reply

@Saravanan Rajenderan yu should go to some training institutes for IIT as the problems you find in the book you prepare will be too complex..youll have to go for courses to get that level...2hours a day are enough Aakash Jain · 3 years, 3 months ago

@Saravanan Rajenderan Aakash Jain is partly right. Better brace yourself - that's my recommendation. Naveen Mathew · 3 years, 2 months ago

@Saravanan Rajenderan I wouldn't say your state board background would put you in a serious disadvantage over CBSE students (At least from the examination point of view - Not sure about the new Normalization rules) Coming from a state board background I managed to clear JEE with 2677 AIR (JEE 2009). It all depends on how you prepare for the exams - The material you read, the number of hours you work etc. IMO all state boards have atleast basic concepts in all the subjects. So you could easily cope up with their portions if you work smartly. P.G. Aravindh · 3 years, 3 months ago

@Naveen Mathew now there are jee main and advanced. cut off for jee main is 113. do you know the cut of of jee advanced ? please tell. i am good in maths at solving questions of jee. does it makes me a chance to score a beautiful rank ? my friends told me that i need to pass physics and chemistry cutoff also. and chemistry is.. hmm .. i dont know. so does there also exist different kind of cut off for subjects. please tell more info also about it. Soham Zemse · 3 years, 3 months ago

Log in to reply

@Soham Zemse Yes, there are individual subject cutoffs too. You need to attain a minimum score in each subject (around 25%). And being strong in mathematics only can get you through the exam, but it doesn't warrant you a decent rank. so you need to put equal effort in each subject in order to attain a good rank.

Mr. Kapil Sibal has ensured that pretty much any advice, that your senior IIT students can give you, is useless in the current scenario with the change in admission process. In my opinion, the process of screening and final exam was the best one. The objective paper pattern too was good. But the current one will only deteriorate the quality of the institutes. But that is a completely separate issue. Bruce Wayne · 3 years, 3 months ago

JEE is the most difficult examination. Agreed. But point to be note here is that the difficulty is in terms of the competition and not the quality of questions.It is true that the question standard is pretty high but it is not the toughest exam in terms of question paper difficulty. Ruchir Mehta · 3 years, 3 months ago

Log in to reply

@Ruchir Mehta I agree with the competition part. It's tougher to get into an IIT than to get into Harvard - an old saying. But I don't agree with your view on the difficulty. Once upon a time, JEE used to have 2 rounds - prelims and finals just like the current format. Around 20000 people used to qualify for the final. The final paper was subjective. Cutoff score in the final paper used to be below 5%. Top 20000 in India and a cutoff score below 5%? How? PS: Only top 20-30% of the top 20000 used to make it through. Atleast 70% of the top 20000 in India scored less than 5%. Naveen Mathew · 3 years, 3 months ago

I want to ask you about isi . What to do for subjective questions. Is there any book by going through which I can learn more. It should be very helpful if you tell me anything about ISI Kolkata. Vishal Yadav · 3 years, 3 months ago

Log in to reply

@Vishal Yadav You can buy the question bank book test of 'mathematics at the 10 plus 2 level', which is published by ISI and contains previous years question papers, both mcq and subjective , that should give you a good idea. Best of luck!! Jit Ganguly · 3 years, 3 months ago

I'm in 12 now and will be answering jee in the coming year...do you have any shortcuts for preperation now?! Any revision methods?! Shweta Salelkar · 2 years, 10 months ago

Log in to reply

@Shweta Salelkar Sadly, people around you don't take shortcuts. There is no substitute for consistent hard work. People claim that more weightage is given to chapters xyz, abc, etc., but there is not guarantee that preparing chapters xyz, abc, etc. will get you a seat in an IIT as the paper is unpredictable.
