Avoid answering questions in last few minutes :
Last minute hustle may increase the chances of mistakes and negative marking.

JEE preparations can be hard on students if they have no clarity on how to prepare for the exam. Here we can find the 10 important things to remember while preparing for the exam.
1. IIT JEE exams are meant to be a marathon and not a sprint. Speed is not going to help with JEE exams, as only determination, perseverance and hard work would help in clearing the exam
2. Comparing with other people is never a healthy habit unless it makes oneself better. The goal is not to be better than others but to be better than what we were yesterday
3. Mistakes are not always a bad thing. During the preparation, a lot of mistakes are bound to happen; but that shouldn’t be disheartening. Rather, it must be used to the advantage, as mistakes will prompt us to learn more
4. Always being open with the teachers regarding the doubts is the most important and best way to score more. Keeping the doubts and questions within, thinking it would be silly to ask such questions to teachers might be cause of the failure as every single detail matter
5. Using technology to our advantage is also important; there are various websites that help in solving questions, and also keeping in touch with the students and solving questions together is also an easy way to understand things
6. Determination is very important. If the first few questions in a question paper seems tough, then it must not be immediately considered a failure. Keeping the cool, finding easier questions to solve is going to relax the mind and help in solving the other questions. Mindset matters
7. Motivation is very important. There will be times where we feel down; but motivating oneself everyday will prove very efficient in due course
8. Self-belief is a great motivator. ‘If not me, then who?’ must be the mantra for everyone, as self-belief gives immense power and self-doubt will only pave way for failure
9. If the goal is to join IIT just because that people say life is settled once students enter IIT, then people are highly mistaken. Life begins with IIT, as it is just an institute which provides quality education. The goal must not be to join IIT, but to utilize its full potential and improve in life
10. Last but not the least, humility and modesty is important. Thinking that one knows everything and being arrogant will never be healthy for a learning mind as arrogance doesn’t help in growth. Modesty and humbleness will help with learning new things
The journey of IIT preparation might be long and hard one, but completing the journey is going to open doors for more opportunities. Keep calm and take up the challenge!
There are multiple articles that focus mainly on the reading strategies, the ways of preparation and the goal is only to clear the exam. But this article is mainly going to focus on the most important thing of all, the mental health of the candidate!
How to improve Mental Strength in Drop Year
Teenagers are known to feel anxious or depressed over the silliest things. When students have a sole dream that is bound to decide their career, a little bit of anxiousness and tension is bound to be present. Mental breakdowns are also common for these students.
The most important thing that the students must understand is that having a trouble-free mind and being happy and relaxed is the key to concentrate and focus on the studies.
Most candidates feel depressed by the fact that they are repeaters and that they are wasting a year of their life. It is OK to take time to achieve the perfect goal that has been already set. People would always try to fool themselves with the notion that they should completely separate and isolate themselves from the rest of the world so that they don’t get distracted.
No one is the exact copy of another person. He perspectives and opinions are going to vary greatly between two individuals. So if one person feels comfortable isolating themselves from the outside world and social interaction and feel like they perform better that way, it is not going to work the same for everyone. If a person has been known to be a “people’s Person” their entire life, isolating themselves will do more harm than good, as they easily get frustrated from being alone.
Sacrifices are important, but the cost must not be the emotional and mental breakdown. It could push the individual away from their goal.
Chilling out with friends is important, relaxation is very imperative after a very serious session of preparation, as it gives time for the mind to process and relax in all way possible. The students often make the mistake of pushing themselves too far out of their comfort zone that they become a burden to themselves.
It is very important for the students to devise a plan which would suit them rather than blindly following what everyone lase follows.
Keeping calm is the only goal here, even when relatives tease and taunt or try to “advice”, or when the test series marks are low. The goal is attainable and the confidence and a calm mind would be the key to success.
Last but not the least, competitive exams aren’t the end of the world and it shouldn’t have a permanent or lasting effect on the students who are attempting them.
