Strategy for Mathematics for JEE Advanced

A good strategy is an essential ingredient in the recipe for success in JEE. Most of the students who bag good ranks in JEE have highly evolved and well - experimented with exam strategies.

Everyone who thinks to give the exam will have a specific routine of attempting questions. Different students have different strategies to attempt like C->P->M or M->P->C. What makes a perfect strategy is evolving it according to one's own strengths and weaknesses after a good amount of experimentation in the mock tests.

With very little time remaining before the D-Day, it may not be possible for you to rethink or remake your strategy so here are a few supplements for getting the best out of the exam with the strategy you follow (If you're not appearing for JEE this year and are reading this).

Things to Remember before Appearing in Exam 

  • Solve as many as YOU can. You are not attempting to get 100% questions right (Even AIR 1 doesn't get 100% in Advance). From the statistics of previous years, a percentage of about 60% can get you a Top 1000 AIR. You might be having a fair idea of your ability, so set your target according to your capability and aim for getting 5% above your target.

  • Run your pencil/ pen along with the sentence but don’t spoil the screen so keep some distance from the screen. Also, read each question at least twice and try to understand it first completely then think about the approach.

  • Do not be subject-specific, each subject has equal weightage in the total. Focus on your strengths, they'll give you the ability to overcome your fears and weaknesses. But in case you are good at a particular or a subject is your favorite and it happened to be the most difficult in that paper, don't hesitate to shift your focus to the other easy subjects.

  • Don't panic at the last moment. Stay calm and composed.

General Tips 

  • Take healthy and light food before the exams. Drink plenty of water. Food and water greatly affect your brain.

  • Follow the exam guidelines well, when it comes to reporting time you have to be punctual and know about things like pen, pencil which are allowed and which are not.

  • You should take care of your health and mind by doing exercise and meditation daily. 

  • A proper timetable will enable you to manage your time. With the help of your schedule, you will be able to achieve your daily targets.

  • Be an early bird and start your preparation early so that you do not face any problems at the time of the examination. Focus on every topic and practice questions related to them.

  • Revision is an important stage at the time of preparation. You can prepare notes and use them while revising the concepts.

FAQs on JEE Advanced 2016 Maths Question Paper-1 with Answer Keys

1. Is Maths NCERT enough for JEE Advanced?

The bottom line of NCERT is that these books are among the best books only for JEE Main, but they are just not enough as they don't include the practice of complex JEE Advanced problems. With the NCERT books, you can just build your foundation of the basic knowledge but you have to refer to other books or modules for JEE Advanced preparation. Besides the NCERT books and other reference books, you should practice Maths question papers of previous years to practice questions of advanced level.

2. Is JEE Advanced Maths tough?

If we talk about the JEE Advanced Mathematics problems, yes, these are generally harder than the other subjects. As Mathematics and Physics are very broad subjects and we can think and visualize a lot of problems, so IITs make the paper which contains some practical daily life examples so it will be a little tough to extract the method to solve, but the calculation part will be very easy. To tackle this subject, students are advised to work more on practical-based aspects rather than theoretical aspects.

3. How can I improve my Maths in JEE Advanced?

Tips To Crack JEE Advanced Maths are as follows: 

  • Conceptual Knowledge: Revise every basic concept of all the chapters before doing problems.

  • Take Mock Tests: Taking full-length JEE Advanced mock tests will help you in improving your speed and accuracy along with the examination atmosphere.

  • Solve Various Questions: Solving JEE Advanced level types of questions just after revising every chapter.

  • Improve Writing Speed With Accuracy: Making use of previous years’ question papers will enable you to maintain your writing pace. Also, you can work on your weaknesses and attempt questions with accuracy.

4. Can a weak student crack IIT?

Yes! We all know that IIT JEE is one of the toughest entrance exams in India. Only through a strategy throughout your preparation, consistency, hard work, subject analyzing skill, and most importantly self-confidence, you can easily crack this exam. So the answer to this question will be YES. To improve your analytical and conceptual skills, you must prefer the best study materials like the NCERT books, question papers, modules, and other guidebooks.  Working on your skills and these study materials, you will be able to qualify for the JEE exam.
