# Need Help!

Hi everyone!

I was working on speed and accuracy of my problem solving ability and I found that on average I require 3-4 minutes for solving a problem of maths. In JEE we have only 2 minutes for each problem. Could you guys please tell me how can I improve my speed.

I gave a maths test yesterday and I completely messed it up. When I came home and solved that paper I found that I could have easily solved 8-9 more questions. Often I freak out during such exams if I do not solve 3-4 problem in row. Could you guys give me some tips about handling stress during exam?

keep practicing , you shall improve, solve problems for the pleasure in it, not just for some exam you are to crack two years later( i am not telling that you are doing that) (best of luck) so i would suggest you to stop worrying about it , no problem is solved by worrying about it. be glad that you know the error in your ways and now have the time to correct it

develop skill even more , speed follows with practice, and accuracy too !

During your preparation in class 11 and 12, how many hours do you study daily?

Do you used to solve question in 2 mins during your daily studies?

Nope, I used to solve problems leisurely for the purpose of only solving the rather than for speed, initially one has to build up on enhancing his problem solving skills.

I wanted to ask which plays more role in success in JEE - hard work or talent?

- 4 years, 2 months ago

I would say talent + hard work is unbeatable.!! But extraordinary talent is very rare, that is why it is extra ordinary.!! top 100 ranks in JEE can be beaten only by extraordinary talent + hardwork .. Rest can be achieved by ordinary talent + hardwork and correct guidance.!!

I Am Also Facing The Same Problem.Yesterday I Gave Weekly Test( It Had 21 More Than One Correct Choice Questions To Be Answered In An Hour with +4 for each correct answer and -2 for wrong one . All The Options Were To Be Checked Could Have Easily Solved 18 But Did Only 14 . But I Think Its The Beginning Its A 2 Year LONG LONG Journey.
