1. Start from the Start
If you have dropped a year for the preparation of IIT JEE, then it most likely is your second attempt. You may be well-versed with certain topics and not so good with the others. However, do not leave any topic as you begin your preparation yet again. Start afresh and give enough time to each topic.
2. Prepare a Schedule
It is of utmost importance to prepare a study schedule in order to cover the entire syllabus timely and also get enough time for revision. Your schedule must be workable and you need to make sure that you stick to it. You may have planned an outing with friends or there might be a wedding in the family or other such occasions during the year. Keep all these in mind as you sit to prepare your study schedule.
3. Study Regularly
You have enough time for preparation however that doesn’t mean you can go for days without touching your books. Make it a habit to study every day in order to prepare well for your exams.
4. Follow a Fixed Sleeping Pattern
It is of utmost importance to sleep for at least 8 hours every night so as to stay energized throughout the day and concentrate properly. It is also essential to follow a fixed sleeping pattern. Try to sleep and wake up at the same time every day. Avoid sleeping between 9 in the morning and 5 in the evening. This is because you will be sitting for your exam during this time and if you are used to sleeping during this time your mind wouldn’t work efficiently enough.
5. Test Your Knowledge
Merely studying chapter after chapter is not enough. Try to find out as to how much you have grasped after studying each topic by giving mock tests or solving sample papers. It is also a good idea to go for group studies from time to time and put across questions to each other during these sessions to assess your knowledge.
It is very essential to squeeze in at least 30 minutes from your daily schedule for exercise. You can choose to practice any physical activity of your choice such as cycling, swimming, jogging, dancing, yoga and the likes. This is a great way to burst stress and stay motivated. In addition to this, it is also suggested to meditate for some time each day.
