JEE Advanced Tips

For the benefit of those who are taking the JEE Advanced at the end of the year, what are some JEE test taking tips that you know of? Can we add to the great advice from last year?

Should you start with your favorite topic?
Should you ever spend more than 2 minutes on a hard problem?
How important is it to answer as many questions as you can? When should you start guessing?
How do you avoid panicking during a 3 hour, 60-80 question test?
Any other advice?

Last year's advice:
1. Sleep early the night before, wake up well rested.
2. Eat a good breakfast. Have a light lunch. Drink water instead of sugared drinks.
3. Be calm, composed and relaxed. Dress in comfortable clothes.
4. Reach the venue (1 hour) early, do not rush.
5. Solve questions you know to build up confidence. If you can't solve the problem, move on and come back later.
6. Guess if you are not penalized.
7. Choose which hard problem you want to solve. You will likely not solve all of them. Better to spend 5 minutes getting 1 correct, then trying many problems without success.

I think the best thing one can do is to act confident. Will the examination to be easy and guess what? It will be. Raghav Vaidyanathan · 1 year, 5 months ago

I'd like to add a point (This has actually pulled me down many a times, and I hope it doesn't in the future!)

"Do not get tensed/frustrated/flustered if you don't know the answer to the initial few questions. Move on, come back to them later and don't mark their answers in haste. Don't keep jumping sections/questions unnecessarily."

Best of luck to all AIPMT aspirants. Tomorrow is the D-DAY ! Rock it.!

Wishing all the genii who have cleared the mains and are going to appear for Advanced , the same. Top the common merit list! \(\ddot\smile\) Krishna Ar · 1 year, 5 months ago
