Aspirants, IIT JEE is an entrance exam based on problem-solving. Much of the time should be spent on problem-solving as this will allow students to understand the subject better. Let’s break it up into steps:

Understanding and attempting the problem – Try to understand the problem, take 5 to 20 minutes, if you possibly feel that you are on the right track refer the solution and see for yourself.


You can mark the difficulty levels for your reference & break it into 4 levels

  1. Easy level
  2. Moderate
  3. Difficult (consuming much of time, but finally could get it convincingly)
  4. Very-Difficult (skip this, for the time being, they can bring your confidence down)


The next thing is the Speed; try to be little fast in solving the questions that will boost your writing speed.

Focus on Accuracy, try to be accurate as much as a possible target that today I will not commit any mistakes.

Concentration while taking the tests regularly your concentration level should increase, keep away your cell phones, do not respond to doorbells or any other disturbances, take no breaks just concentrate.  

Review your performance This is the most crucial part if you have solved your questions with ease you are on a way to mastering it, well done! but by any chance, if you are struggling with 60 to 70 you need to repeat the test.

A good planning, positive approach and the right study plan will ensure a successful path in IIT JEE
