Well, this is an extremely important question for many, especially those who haven’t studied a bit in class 11. Now, there is one year in your hands to prepare for the coveted JEE. Let’s get down to business quickly.
Make sure that you follow all these :
- Have a proper timetable and daily/weekly targets (as they suit you). If you have these, then it is a step in the right direction. If not, then start doing so.
- Make sure that you revise class 11th syllabus parallel to covering class 12th syllabus.
- Make sure that you do this by regularly solving questions of class 11 on a daily basis and reading theory on a fortnightly basis.
- Do not get distracted by a pile of material. Choose one that you are comfortable with, and follow it religiously. For recommended material to follow, see my post on the recommended books.
- Make sure that you do atleast 4–5 hrs of self study (if you go to school and coaching). If you sit at home, devote atleast 10 hrs of daily study
- Make sure that you never give up and always have your targets set in front of your eyes.
- Don’t use things that distract you – like gadgets, television, or relationships, etc.
- Make sure that you keep your mind fresh daily.
- Stay healthy, so that time is not wasted in getting fit again. Time is of utmost importance, given that you only have one year.
- Follow the books that are recommended to you by teachers or by me. Works both ways 😉
- Give a lot of mock tests, especially the last year papers. They are an extremely important resource.
- Revise again and again, infinitely.
- Don’t neglect inorganic chemistry, EVER !
Trust me, I followed all of these things… and i got AIR 95….
So, All the best,
