Chemistry – Inorganic and physical
Physics – Kinematics, dynamics, electricity and magnetism
Mathematics – Calculus, determinants, permutation & combination, vector and 3D
Please note that this in no way gives you the leeway to leave other topics. You are advised to give a little more time to these topics.
Study all topics – Do not leave any topic as all are important and at the same time do not study outside the JEE prescribed syllabus. If you have time, hone the topics you are good at. Read NCERT books
Practice mock tests – Practice old question papers/ mock test as much as you can. Infact, for next few days only practice full tests. This will improve your time management and firm concepts. Also, many a time, similar types of questions are asked and this practice will help you a lot.
Stay calm & relax – Do not focus only on studies, give yourself a relax and fun time every day. Play, listen to music, meet friends, etc. Take proper diet and sleep well. Give yourself a break of at least 24 hours before the exam.
On the day of the exam
Stay composed – Do not get distressed at the sight of large number of students appearing for the exam. Control your emotions while going through the question paper; do not get depressed at difficult question or over excited at easy one. Maintaining balance of emotions is very important for focus.
Be attentive – Read all the instructions given in the beginning of the paper carefully.
Be Prudent – Select questions very carefully. Give priority to the questions that are on the topics that are your strength and are less time consuming. First target answering at least 40 correct questions in each section as that is minimum to take you to next level. If you have time left then go for remaining.
Remember there is no place for fluke as you stand the danger of losing a mark at each in-correct answer.
Time management – Carefully select questions and abstain from spending too much time on one question. Always keep time for revision.
Remember, last minute preparation can sometimes do wonders, so don’t be complacent. Buckle up and give your best.
Best of Luck.
