3 Simple Tips for Using IIT study To Get Ahead Your Competition: Every IIT aspirant has a dream of scoring a high rank in IITJEE but it’s not always easy to achieve what we dreamt of. This requires a lot of hard work and determination. Above all judicious planning and smart strategies is the key to the main door. Every one of you might study well but how smartly you study matters. There are no short-cuts to achieving success. Here we are providing candidates with few simple tips for using IIT study to get ahead of the competition.
- Analyze Exam Patterns: No matter how well learned or prepared you are for your exam but if you failed to do research on the pattern of exam, all your effort will go in vain. Check with appropriate authority the patterns of an exam. Crosscheck if there is any pattern change notification for that year or not? Be aware of the sections that are coming in the exams and their time limit, how many and which type of questions will come? Also, keep yourself well informed about the marking scheme and their section wise weightage. Be ensured that what you had prepared is in accordance with the correct pattern as it will make you more confident and clear in writing the paper. It will save both your time and energy but on the day of exam never forgot to read instructions mentioned on the paper before you start.
- Pick correct resources: Other than NCERT books and other referred textbook try to pick up other means of study too. For example, try mock tests that are available online since these tests mirror the actual JEE in terms of structure, format, and content but one disadvantage is that it can’t give you the real time exam feel since paper-based versions of the JEE will require you to record your answers by hand which is not possible on computers. Another important resource for JEE aspirants are the question papers from the previous years. Since the new JEE exam replaced the old IIT-JEE in 2013, only question papers from 2014 are available, even though they are sufficient for practice purpose. One of the other good resources is your hand-written notes. For easy learning and revision, make short notes and tricks for each subject or chapter. Making notes in your language is very useful and hard to forget.
- Thorough, regular revision: Repetition is the key to any learning. When you are able to revise what you had learned on daily basis, the learning will become easier. If you break it apart from the word revision, what does it really mean? Of course, re- means again, and -vision means sight, so when we revise anything — notes, papers, chapters, formulas — we are “re-seeing” it, or viewing it again, presumably with a different perspective or with new things in mind. The more you revise, the more your concepts will become crystal clear away from any confusion. It has also been observed in many types of research too that crucially, revision is not something to do at the end of the learning process – the last minute rush to prepare for an exam. Instead, revision – or even better, ‘relearning’ – is integral to how students learn and remember best.
