Nowadays, the dream of many students after completing their Class 12 exam is to opt for engineering as one of their primary career options. And most students want to pursue their engineering courses in premier institutions. Students with this objective will make an all-out effort to enter the country’s premier technical institutes like IITs (Indian Institute of Technology). In order to get into IITs, they must crack two phases of IIT JEE, i.e., JEE Main and JEE Advanced. As we know, from 2022, JEE Main will be conducted in two sessions. This is helpful for the students who couldn’t score well in the first attempt (session) and can target the second attempt (session).
In this article, you can understand the strategies to score a good percentile in the JEE Main second attempt.
Modify the Preparation Strategy
For the preparation of the second attempt of JEE Main, students must adopt better strategies and may need to change their preparation plan. This will help them clear the entrance exam with a better percentile than their first attempt. Apart from the change in preparation strategy, one should practise the first attempt question papers and previous years’ question papers. Suppose candidates are preparing for the second attempt of JEE Main 2024; it is beneficial for them to solve JEE Main 2023 question papers along with the first attempt question papers. Solving multiple question papers will help the JEE aspirants to get familiar with the question pattern and develop a strategy to solve different types of questions, apart from enhancing their time management skills.
Analyse Previous Performance
One of the important things while preparing for the JEE Main second attempt is to analyse the performance of the previous JEE Main attempt. This should include identifying the weaker areas, high-weightage topics/chapters, easily answerable sections, etc. This can be done by evaluating the question paper with the answer sheet and inspecting the topics that they need to work on.
Attempt JEE Main Mock Test
Candidates who are aiming to achieve good scores in the JEE Main second attempt must make a habit of attempting mock tests daily. Practising mock tests and assessing the scores with the help of JEE Main answer key will help them improve their performance in the actual exam. Attempting more JEE Main mock tests will help them identify their mistakes in the exam and practise accordingly. Keep track of the scores attained in daily mock tests and focus on improving the score. For the score to improve, reduce the time of solving questions, check the type of questions that take a lot of time to solve. Bypass those questions and solve them at the end. Eventually, the score will improve in the JEE Main mock tests.
Revision of Important Concepts
Candidates must revise the syllabus as much as possible. It is also important to make short notes and write down formulas in Physics and Maths. These notes will be helpful in quick last-minute revision before the examination. When it comes to Chemistry, candidates must focus on NCERT books since most of the questions will be directly asked from the concepts and topics covered in these books.
