After a somewhat troubled release of iOS 11, Apple seems to be turning things around with iOS 11.1. Finally !
Wondering what is the difference between a normal kid and a topper? Here’s one of the “topper’s secrets”.
So, I had a quick discussion with my friend Shourya Pandey, a bronze medalist at the International Maths Olympiad, about his views on the exam and what all stuff he would like his juniors to know… Excited about it? You should be! Let’s head on and have a look at what Shourya advises :
Thermal Physics is one of those units in Physics that is sure to act as your masterstroke during exams, if worked on properly.
Wanna know the secret to an awesomely insane rank ? Well, Inorganic Chemistry is the answer. Don’t be surprised… Read on…
To Make it easier for you to study inorganic chemistry, we have divided it into three parts: In this part, we shall talk about those chapters of inorganic chemistry that need understanding of concepts mostly and hardly any rote memorization. These are – Periodic Table, Chemical Bonding, Coordination Compounds and Metallurgy.
Electronic Displacement Effects (aka General Organic Chemistry or GOC) – A brief review from the desk of Mohit Ryan (Senior Chemistry Faculty, guru of AIR 95 and an alumnus of IIT Kharagpur)
Hello folks. The topic of this article viz attempting the paper is basically what counts. Believe me, I have seen cases wherein people seem to know every damn concept but they just blow it up when its all needed.(I have done that too so I know the inner frustration when this happens..)

This has got to be a major query of most of the students preparing for JEE. (It was, in my case 😉 ).
So, cutting short to the essential matter… Electromagnetism covers the following chapters :
Algebra… The study of the one and only ‘x’, the ever unknown variable. Just kidding, algebra is much more than just all this. Although many books differ in what they classify algebra as, I am going to use algebra to basically cover the theory of equations, complex numbers, matrices, sequences and series, and a few minor chapters. Time’s of prime importance and so, let’s be on our way to discuss this essential unit of JEE-Mathematics syllabus.
It’s a million $ question…. How to manage time… Specially while preparing for competitions.
I would like to advise you, as i advise all my students, to firstly RESPECT TIME.
Let’s head up to the second portion of the Calculus portion of JEE Syllabus. The tricks that we have mastered and used while doing the differential part of calculus shall help a lot in Integral Calculus. After all, Integration is just the inverse of Differentiation. However, it gets a bit more interesting than that. Differentiation of functions can be easy, sometimes even implicit. However, Integration for the most part is not elementary. Let’s head on to the individual chapters and the books that we are going to need for this high-weightage unit of JEE Maths syllabus.
Hello there, people. It’s time… KVPY is arriving soon and i felt that you need the best to clear it. Hence, we have come out with our own set of mock tests prepared for you by the experienced faculties who are on-board the Team Prepsera…
Here is the link to these papers. Make sure you use them well. Note that one question from our mock tests came in KVPY 2016. So you know what to Continue reading KVPY SA : Mock Tests
I will be very honest with all of you. I didn’t start my journey of organic reaction mechanisms with the standard method. Usually, kids start of mechanisms with Hydrocarbons (addition/free radical substitution, etc). I started my journey of Reaction Mechanisms with Nucleophilic Substitution reactions. The chapter was Alkyl Halides and there were a number of concepts to be learned – Sn1, Sn2 and Sni reactions, along with the use of Neighbouring Group Participation (NGP). These are definitely the OST important concepts of this chapter and enough attention must be given on them.
Mechanics is undoubtedly the most conceptual part of JEE Physics. In fact, the entire two year syllabus revolves around mechanics. While the exam paper has about 30% direct questions from mechanics, it is safe to assume that the paper also has another 30-35% questions indirectly involving mechanics. That’s a whopping 60-65% of the paper based on one single unit of Physics! Basically, what this means for you, the candidate, is that an absolute mastery over Mechanics is essential for a good rank. Also, keep in mind that mechanics CANNOT be mastered in a month… it needs about 8-10 months of rigorous practice to fully grab the concepts of mechanics. So, if initially, you cannot understand mechanics or solve its questions, don’t be disheartened. Most of the kids have trouble understanding mechanics.
