How To Prepare For JEE Main During 12th Board Exams


Most of the Central and State boards commence the class 12th board examination in the month of March and would be over by March end or early April, leaving a very little time for students who have applied for the JEE Main which is conducted across the country in the month of April. JEE Main is conducted by CBSE every year.To be eligible for counselling in NITs, IIITs and other Government Funded Technical Institutes (GFTIs), students need to secure a minimum of 75% in their CBSE board exam or they should be in top 20 percentile of their respective boards, hence the board exams could not be underestimated by the students any further.

Below are some tips, which are to be kept in mind by students before starting their preparations for JEE and Board Exams: 

1. Focus on each and every concept and theories:

While the board exams focus mainly on theories and derivations, JEE Main is focussed more on the conceptual and practical applications of these concepts. While preparing for the 12th Board Exams, you need to be well-versed with the theoretical and conceptual part given in the NCERT textbooks in detail as it would ultimately help you in JEE Main as well. Until and unless you do not have a good grasp on concepts and theories given in NCERT textbooks, you cannot do well while practicing for JEE Mains.

  1. Do not skip any topic:

The students should not skip any topic by judging its difficulty level and should focus on covering the entire syllabus. They should not miss out any topic, no matter how small or insignificant the topic sounds. Devote sufficient time and effort to make sure that every part is completed thoroughly. Covering the entire CBSE syllabus in time would boost your confidence for JEE Mains.

  1. Make a proper study plan before starting the preparation:

It is important that the students should have a proper plan along with the goal in their mind before starting the preparations. Strategy often plays a major role in success and failure of a student in highly competitive exams like JEE Mains.

  • While designing the study plan, organize the entire syllabus of your Board exam and the JEE Main exam effectively, since 70% of the JEE Main syllabus maps with the syllabus of 12th class board exams.
  • Set a deadline for each and every topic and write it down in your study plan. This would help you to measure your progress and would act as a motivating factor.
  • While designing the study plan, be practical and set those targets that you could achieve, and make a proper balance between your Boards and JEE preparations.
  1. Practicing with Previous Year’s Question Papers:

Most of the students generally miss out this part while preparing for the JEE and boards exam. Solving previous year’s question papers would help you to gain conceptual clarity, increases your confidence level and motivate you to work hard for the exam. Analyze your results, know your strengths and weaknesses, and accordingly alter your study strategy to gain more marks. At least practice with 9 to 10 previous year’s question papers for both JEE and Boards. 

  1. Thorough and Regular Revision:

There are some topics in JEE and Board syllabus that require students to memorize the concepts, like inorganic chemistry, Maths formulas, trigonometric identities etc, and regular revision of such topics would help a lot in raising your preparation level significantly. During board exams, you would be required to write theoretical answers, hence revision at regular intervals would be the key to score high marks. If you find yourself constrained by time, then focus on revising those topics that have maximum weight age in JEE Main and board exams.
