Tips to get ready for boards with IIT JEE
- The first and foremost step is to give some time to prepare for boards along with the IIT JEE. Do not aim for a lower percentage on boards. Remember, the syllabus for boards and JEE mains is the same; only the approach is different.
- Give time to subjects like English and Computer science during your free time.
- Do not lose JEE preparation momentum while preparing for boards. If you prepare only for boards, your JEE score might turn out to be low. Make sure you strike the perfect balance.
- Work seriously in pre-boards. Avoid treating pre-boards as internal exams; try to complete your syllabus during this time frame. This will automatically increase your chances of scoring high marks on boards.
- Another major point is practical files. This task is time-consuming; therefore, make sure you complete it beforehand in your free hours.
- Practise previous year’s question papers and NCERT. Make sure you read NCERT at least two times before going for your boards.
- Learn to write answers. Do not rush or scribble through them. Solve the questions in a sequence.
- While going for board exams, work on your ability to frame answers.
- Mention derivations, formulas, and reactions.
- Do not skip any questions.
- While studying for boards, do not neglect JEE Mains. Take out some time to prepare for it as well.
- If you have a weak subject, keep an answer-based approach.
- For MCQs, take reference from the NCERT exemplar.
- Try to do section C in the beginning.
- Practise drawing diagrams.
