IIT JEE(MAIN) 2018 – Last Minute Tips and Tricks to Ace the Exam


Once the board examinations are over, the engineering and architecture aspirants would be appearing for JEE MAIN(Joint Entrance Exam). With only about a week left for the exam  it’s important to optimise your time and approach before the big exam.

The JEE (Main) 2018 in offline mode will be held on April 8, 2018, whereas the online computer-based exam will be conducted on April 15, 2018 and April 16, 2018. 
This time around 14 lakh students in about 1500 centres across the country and overseas will be taking this exam.


Time Management

Students must give equal weightage to all the subjects, prepare a timetable and follow it properly. Remember it is the quality of time spent and not the quantity alone. Hence, take short breaks of five to ten minutes after every one or two hours of serious study.
Relax completely when you take a break. An overnight study is not advised and one should sleep for a minimum of five to six hours at night.

Study Material

This is not the right time to prepare from new books (study materials), one should concentrate on preparing the concepts from the materials/books which he/she has been preparing for last two years. I would suggest that every student has to take mock exam per day. Divide the topics from each subject into ten modules and start revising one module from each of three subjects per day.
This preparation has to be in the morning hours when you are fresh and relaxed. Take a three-hour test on these three modules in the afternoon and analyse your performance immediately. In the evening, just go through the same modules once again and correct yourself where ever required based on your test performance.


  • Apart from studying books, students should also concentrate on the previous years’ question papers of JEE Main
  • It will help you to manage your time in the examination. By solving these papers, students will get an idea of exam pattern, question weightage
  • Writing Mock Exams on regular basis is important, JEE (Main) is not difficult, but tricky. Many students fail to score in actual JEE due to lack of planning on how to write the exam
  • Once the revision of all topics completed, students should schedule at least one mock exam per week
  • First 15 minutes of the exam needs to be used for the reading of instructions of the question paper.
  • For solving of questions from each subject restricted for 45 minutes, since subject wise cut-off is not there in JEE main, spend last 30 minutes for the subject which is easy in that particular paper.
  • Speed and accuracy are important aspects, which come from an extensive practice of mock papers.
  • The most important thing is clarity of concepts and regular practice in problem-solving. Both speed and strike rate matter. You need to be quick and accurate to achieve high scores.
  • High speed with less accuracy can actually ruin your results.
And also do read you NCERT book of Physics, Chemistry and Maths before the Exam.
