Here are some smart last-minute tips and tricks for JEE Main 2019 that you might want to go through before entering the examination hall
On January 8, lakhs of engineering aspirants will appear for JEE Main 2019. The exam which has long been considered as the gateway for admission to India’s top Engineering and Technical Institutes. Most of the students would have studied hard for the last three months and may have also been trying to crack the exam for the last few years.
In JEE, even variation of one or two marks may result in the variation of rank in thousands and thus, this factor makes the examination a highly competitive one. Most students would have covered the entire syllabus by now, have solved several full-length practice papers, model tests and previous year JEE Main question papers, and are almost done with their revision, now that the exam is knocking at the door.
However, some last-minute tips can never do any harm.
Here are some smart last-minute tips and tricks for JEE Main 2019 that you might want to go through before entering the examination hall:
- Keep Away Negativity: Do not let negative thoughts cloud your mind at the last moment. If you are confident about 15 out of the 20 chapters in any of the subjects, then don’t think about those 5 chapters which you are not confident about. Even if you secure 180 marks in total (i.e. 50 per cent of marks) you will get a seat in good NITs.
- Manage time effectively: Solve JEE Main previous year question papers like you would do at the exam hall. For instance, if the exam is to be conducted at 3 pm in the noon, candidates should also take their mock test at 3 so that it matches their biological clock with that of the main exam timing. This makes them accustomed to the schedule.
- Minimise interactions as much as possible: It is often said that interaction with other students or anyone before the exam often leads to unnecessary thoughts and views. Try to mingle less with your friends or other candidates before the exam as this may lead to a conflict of ideas or opinions and result in low morale and confidence.
- Do not juggle with topics: While preparing for the exam, always finish one topic completely and then move on to the other one. Juggling between 2-3 topics simultaneously will lead to unwanted confusion. This habit will keep you well-informed and well-prepared for each specific topic.
- Get sound sleep: Your mind doesn't work when tired. Schedule a routine for sleep at least for 6-7 hours daily. Sleep and eat on time to keep healthy and have a lot of energy just before the exam.
