Is JEE level Physics enough for Indian Physics Olympiad (InPhO) ?

Firstly, Enough might mean just enough level to scrape off a okish score in JEE Advanced or it might mean good enough to score 90% in JEE Advanced. Going by my personal experience, you can clear INPHO (Indian Physics Olympiad) if your concepts of physics are strong enough and you can apply them practically. So, in a word, yes. JEE level physics can get you through, however syllabus completion and a large exposure to tough problems is a must.

R C Mukerjee : The Godbook for Physical Chemistry

So, one day, Aakash comes to me and says,”I want to strengthen physical chemistry…give me a problem sheet having problems related to the important topics.” I replied, “There is an amazing  collection of problems in R C Mukerjee. Practice it and tell me if you have any doubt”

 

From then on, Aakash made a habit of finishing RCM for every chapter. Although the book doesn’t contain a collection of challenging problems, he found them helpful for providing a good start in a chapter. I think the above paragraph was enough to make you understand that RCM is useful. However, go through the review below to understand its actual worth ! Continue reading R C Mukerjee : The Godbook for Physical Chemistry

How to clear JEE in a short time, viz 3-4 months

I was a regular school goer all my 11th and the first two months of my 12th. I was not attending any coaching. I had a enrolled in a test series (FIITJEE I think) and got volumes of material which I would occasionally flip through. A decent performance at school level academics kept me oblivious to the time I was losing. Fast forward 10 months and I was battling it out against all the engineering aspirants of the country in a gruelling 6 hour JEE Advanced test that changed my life. I want to convey through this piece of writing that it is possible to get a decent JEE rank in a short time provided that one is ready to accept the challenge and dedicate his time and efforts.

Do bad marks actually mean anything?

In  case you were wondering, bad marks do not mean anything significant, other than the fact that you did not fit into the standardized grading scheme of the examining body. By the way, this fact includes your college grades too.
