Question-1 : What would you like to advise the students appearing for JEE Main 2020?
Ans. JEE MAIN is a simple exam but what makes it competitive is the number of students appearing for it. So according to me, a student who is following a perfect & disciplined schedule and is under the guidance of experts has a fair chance of cracking and acing the JEE MAIN 2020.
Question-2 : What is the most effective study plan for a student who is appearing for JEE Main 2020?
Ans. The study plan for cracking JEE MAIN 2020 January is as follows:-
- First and foremost a student must devote 6 hours of self-study. Now divide these 6 hours into two slots of 4hours and 2 hours. Where the first slot should be dedicated for studying the current portion and the second one for revising the old portion.
- In the first slot of 4 hrs. give the first 1hour for re-calling the topics taught in class and the remaining three hours for solving at least 90 problems based on various topics( 30 in each subject) as it will help you in keeping a track of your speed which would be beneficial during the exam.
- In the second slot of 2 hours, revise one complete chapter of physics/chemistry/maths and solve questions from previous years based on the same chapter.
- Since the JEE MAIN examines the problems solving skill, so the student appearing for this examination should also focus on enhancing these skills in order to crack it.
- Students are strongly suggested to solve questions from the previous years as they have covered most of the concepts related to a particular chapter. Also, it has been observed that most of the problems asked in JEE MAIN are derived from previous year’s JEE ADVANCED/ JEE MAIN papers. Solving such questions boosts the confidence level of the student and also does the conditioning of his brain.
- It is scientifically proven that physical activities develop the cognitive skills and enhance the memory of a person thus try your best to play any sport for at least 30 to 50 mins. daily
Remember, JEE MAIN is a simple exam, but all it requires is a disciplined preparation, keeping things simple and having control over the mind.

It is advised to complete all the chapters up to the NCERT level. A student should target finishing 80 percent of the syllabus with a high level of perfection. If a student is able to attempt 80 percent of the paper with accuracy in 3 hours then he may score well and will definitely land into a good NIT.
Question-5 : What should be the preparation strategy for a 12th grader who is preparing for JEE Main 2020?
Ans. First and foremost you must understand the nature and the pattern of JEE examination:
This year’s question paper will contain 75 questions (25 of each subject). In each subject, 20 questions will be MCQ’s and 5 questions will be integer answer type. Since the duration is the same i.e. 3 hours and the number of questions has decreased to 75 from 90, we can expect the difficulty level to increase. JEE MAIN paper is expected to be a reflection of JEE advanced paper.
Following are the suggestions for the students of 12th grade:-
- Thoroughly read each chapter of NCERT book (12th grade) and solve the examples of each chapter on your own. In addition, you could also solve NCERT exampler as it has a double benefit of preparing you for Boards and JEE MAIN syllabus of class 12. NOTE: Try finishing this by the first week of November.
- In order to revise the syllabus of class 11, a student must use good study material from a well-known coaching institute. One must revise all the basic formulae and solve the exercises given in the module. Target to finish this syllabus by 20th December.
- From 21st Dec to 5th January, students should solve previous year papers. One should aim at solving 2 papers daily and the time slot for solving these papers should be 09:00 AM to 12:00 NOON and 02:00 PM to 05:00 PM as JEE MAIN exam takes place in the same time slots. Make sure you check your answers and revise the concepts in which you have made mistakes.
- In addition to the above-mentioned point, a student must solve all the single correct as well as integer answer type problems that are asked in JEE ADVANCED in the last 15 years.
- By sincerely following the above-mentioned strategies with 100 percent commitment, a student may easily score 150+ out of 300 in such a small duration of time.
Question-6 : What is the best time table that can be followed by a student who is in class 10th/11th/12th grade and is planning to appear for the medical or engineering entrance exams?
