HOW TO PREPARE FOR JEE ADVANCED IN LAST 35 DAYS

JEE MAIN Examination is over now and now you have about 35 days to gear up for the most prestigious engineering entrance examination i.e. for JEE ADVANCED. I hope you all must have done well in JEE MAIN and now you all must be focused towards JEE ADVANCED examination.

Below are the few suggested guidelines from my side for your help:
1. Previous year papers: Well instead of trying the available mock tests of famous institutes or books it is wise to practice the previous year papers of actual JEE ADVANCED. Just collect last three to five years papers(even available on official JEE ADVANCED site) and try to attempt them like the actual examination. Even you needn't attempt all papers if you have time crunch.This will help you in getting a feel of the examination, what to expect, how much to attempt, how not to waste time.For those who are studying in a specialized institute don't miss last few mock tests conducted by your institute.

2. Identifying Your Scoring Areas: After practicing these papers you should have an idea about which topics you can and should focus to score marks. Roughly the three subjects have 90 odd chapters and you can easily leave 10-15 chapters without hurting your performance. Also read the instructions on papers clearly, see where negative marking is applicable and where it is not. Try to solve single option correct and Integer type questions first.

3. Work on Strengths: Frankly speaking you don't have much time now to build up confidence over a topic which you have hardly studied till now so smartness suggests that instead of working on your weaknesses it is more wiser to work on strengths.But remember there's a sectional cutoff here, so make sure your weakest link in all subjects should be strong enough to clear that cutoff. But for aggregate score to be higher you need to score very well at least in one of the subjects.

4. Positive Attitude and Self Belief: Irrespective of how much you have studied and prepared till now, you have to maintain a positive attitude because worrying too much about what you haven't done won't improve your performance. Remember JEE ADVANCED in not a very high scoring exam and here you can cross the line even by attempting half of the questions sensibly. The bravery is not in attempting all questions, sensible candidate must select the questions which are in his range and devote maximum time only on those questions which are going to fetch you marks.

I want to share suggestion from one of my successful student regarding JEE ADVANCED

"I think the best strategy in JEE Advanced is to forget the pressure and immerse yourself into these three beautiful subjects and try to enjoy the paper (it is very difficult to keep nerves). Another important thing is that you completely forget what has happened in the first paper and start paper 2 freshly. I believe that discussing paper in the break does more harm than good."

So avoid all  negative thoughts and just believe in yourself. Remember these magical words "I CAN AND I WILL"

ALL THE BEST!!

JEE MAIN 2016: REACTIONS AND ANALYSIS

HINDUSTAN TIMES
A number of students found paper 1 (BE/BTech) of Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Mains lengthy in Jaipur on Sunday, while in Patna many applicants said that the paper was easy.
In Jaipur, students were dissatisfied with the time limit for paper I. They found chemistry and physics portion of the exam tougher than mathematics. A total of 90 questions, carrying 360 marks, had to be answered in three hours.
“I found chemistry portion toughest and could attempt only 60 out of 90 questions. Mathematics questions were of average difficulty but physics and chemistry papers were tough. Overall, the paper was lengthy”, said Abhishek, who took the exam.
“The question paper was very lengthy and I attempted only 75 out of 90 questions. However, my preparation was good and I am confident of getting a decent score”, said another applicant Mridul Jain.
A total of 44,253 candidates appeared for paper I held across 72 centers in Jaipur. They were frisked at the venue as carrying any stationery, mobile phones and electronic gadgets was prohibited.
In Bihar, around 54,000 students appeared from different parts of the state at around 29 centres in Patna, 10 in Muzaffarpur and eight in Gaya. Students who took Paper-1 termed the overall paper easy with chemistry being most scoring.
“It was perhaps the easiest paper of JEE (Mains) in last three years. Mathematics was relatively easy while chemistry was quite scoring. Only physics was tough among the three subjects, like always,” said Rajat Kumar and Manish Kumar, who took the examination.
JEE paper-1 aspirants had started lining up at the examination hall since 7am in the morning, as per CBSE guidelines. The CBSE has taken strict measures to prevent use of unfair means.
While most examinees cooperated to the frisking and security measures at the centres, tension was reported from a few centres in Bihar, where parents of the appearing students and security personnel had a tiff. No violence was reported.
Parents of the examinees waited outside the examination hall in the scorching heat till 12.30pm, the conclusion of paper 1.
In Lucknow, many candidates reached examination centre hours before the start of the paper as they knew that frisking will be done.
Thousands of students took the exam in Lucknow too, but we do not have their reaction till now.
Ahead of the start of exam, City Montessori School student Gaurav told HT that he had prepared well for examination.
“Alongside boards I prepared for the competitive examination. But honestly speaking, this exam is going to be tough. I will also appear in state entrance exam to be conducted by AKTU previously known as UP Technical University,” said Gaurav.
The first level of Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), for admission to Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) and other engineering institutes, held on Sunday was tougher compared to last year, say experts.
Experts said that the cut-off is expected to rise due to ambiguities in certain questions.
The cut-offs for Common Merit List (CML) in 2013, 2014, 2015 were 113,115 and 105 respectively.
“Few questions in the chemistry paper were ambiguous,” said Ramesh Batlish, who teaches at a coaching institute.
About 12 lakh students appeared for the examination at over 2,000 centres in 129 cities in India and abroad.
Students said that Paper 1, which had questions from physics, chemistry and mathematics, was from within the syllabus but few were difficult to solve. Paper 2, that tested students in mathematics, aptitude and drawing, was easier.
The exam conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) was written. The online exam is scheduled for April 8 and 9.
“Few questions in physics were tricky and challenging. Compared to last year this section was a shade tougher,” said RL Trikha, director FIITJEE. He said the same was the case with chemistry and mathematics.
“Few questions of mathematics were also lengthy,” he said.
Disha Sharma, who appeared for the examination, also said the physics section was difficult.
“The chemistry paper was easy. Mathematics section was a little tricky. I had difficulty in solving few physics questions,” said Sharma.

JEE MAIN 2016 ANALYSIS

JEE MAIN 2016 was relatively easier than the JEE MAIN 2015. The cutoff score for JEE Advanced would be lower than last year because of increase in number of candidates from 1.5 Lakh to 2.0 Lakh this this year. Overall it was a balanced paper.

Analysis of Physics Section
Physics was again the toughest of the three sections. But it was bit easier than last years one. There was mistakes in two questions where two options are correct. This year paper had less calculations as compared to last year. The weight-age of XII class topics was higher and paper had four questions from Semiconductors. Almost 18-20 questions were straight or similar to question students practice at their coaching institutes. So I feel a score of 70+ is a good score.

Analysis of Chemistry Section
The paper was NCERT based and was more factual. Practical Chemistry and Environmental Chemistry based questions were more in number. There is error reported in one of the questions.
A score of 80+ is a good score.

Analysis of Mathematics Section
It was again easier than last year ones though it was lengthy.All topics were covered. Almost 20 questions are NCERT based while rest requires much greater knowledge. A score of 75+ is a good score.

Weightage To Class XII marks For JEE Main To Be Dropped From 2017

SOURCE: INDIAN EXPRESS

The NDA government has decided to roll back its predecessor’s decision to give 40 per cent weightage to an engineering aspirant’s Class XII Board marks for admission to the National Institutes of Technology, three years after it was introduced. The change, which will be effective from 2017, is expected to be notified soon.
Currently, the 31 NITs admit students based on all-India ranks prepared with 60 per cent weightage to a candidate’s JEE (Main) performance and 40 per cent weightage to his Class XII marks.
According to sources, Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani, who is the chairperson of the NIT Council, has decided that from 2017, NITs will no longer use Board performance to calculate ranks. They will, instead, follow the IIT practice. The IITs grant admission only if a candidate, apart from qualifying JEE (Advanced), is either in the top 20 percentile of his or her school Board or has scored at least 75 per cent.
The Indian Express had reported on October 28, 2015, that an expert committee appointed by the government had found the UPA-II decision — taken by the then HRD minister Kapil Sibal to reduce the influence of coaching and bridge the gender and urban-rural divide in classrooms — had not served those purposes. Sibal had argued that according weightage to Class XII Board performance would help students focus on school education and wean them away from coaching classes.
A nine-member panel, headed by Centre for Development of Advanced Computing director Rajat Moona, studied the admission data of 31 NITs over the last three years and found that instead of registering a decline, the influence of coaching among candidates taking the JEE (Main) grew by four percentage points. The number of JEE (Main) examinees assisted by tuitions increased from approximately 15 per cent of the total in 2012 to 19 per cent in 2014.
When the NIT Council met in October last year, Irani did not approve any changes to JEE (Main) 2016 and deferred the decision for 2017. She is now learnt to have agreed to the panel’s suggestions for next year’s entrance test.
“Both IITs and NITs will follow the same system and admit students solely on the basis of the entrance examination. The threshold for Board marks will only be a pre-condition for admission,” said an official on the condition of anonymity.
As for the growing influence of the coaching industry, the official said, “Students go to coaching institutes because the JEE assesses candidates on advanced or tougher curriculum which is not covered in schools. We have got an assurance from IITs and NITs that they will prepare questions based on the Class XII syllabus prescribed by school Boards.”
