JEE Main 2021 : 3 answered questions


Ques. How can we prepare for the JEE Mains while attending classes at NIT Sikkim?

● Top Answer By Ishaan Tiwari on 05 Jul 21

Ans. JEE Main is a tough exam and it gets even tougher if you have your college studies to do. But luckily in NIT Sikkim, the study pressure is less, so you can prepare easily. For preparation, you can take an extra day off from the institute with permission.  Talking about the JEE subjects, Mathematics is the same as the course in 1st year so it gives you a good revision and more guidance to cover your topics.  For Chemistry especially the organic part and inorganic part comes only from the NCERT books and from the previous year’s papers.  For Physical Chemistry, you can ask your faculty from the chemistry department to help you with it.  Moreover, class notes, previous year’s papers, and a good book will set you up properly.  For Physics HC Verma and DC Pandey are the best books available. The physics department helps you if you ask regarding anything.  In the first-semester course differential and integral calculus are covered so you don’t have to worry about them.  NIT is a good option and you won’t have anything to lose so it is safe. Just solve a lot of practice papers.Read more

Ques. Can I get admission in any IIITs or NITs by JEE Mains AIR 35038?

● Top Answer By Namo Singh on 22 Jun 21

Ans. One of my close friends chose to go for Nirma Institute because of a rank like that, whether you'd want to believe it or not, but your rank and marks are not satisfactory.  If you'd wanted to get into the CSE program, then I must motivate you to strive better by saying that for CSE you need better scores. No IIT or NIT will grant you admission in the stream with 35038 ranks. Although, you may still have a chance at NIT Srinagar for Chemical, Civil; NIT Silchar for Instrumentation Engineering; NIT Rourkela for Ceramics; and NIT Agartala for Chemical, Civil, Production engineering. These colleges have a good national reputation.  I'd suggest that you keep other options open like keep checking official websites of universities like Sharda University, Lovely Professional University, Nirma Institute etc.  You might get better opportunities here because they are much more advanced with state-of-the-art facilities. They do not have the reputation of an IIT but they have live projects, spectacular infrastructure, multidisciplinary programs and offer good exposure to students through association with academic delegates from India and abroad.Read more

Ques. How can I prepare for the JEE Mains while attending classes at NIT Sikkim?

● Top Answer By Ritesh Dash on 10 Jun 21

Ans. From your question, it is safe to guess that you are a student of NIT Sikkim and trying to score better in the next JEE Main, maybe because you did not quite like the environment or the infrastructure of the institute.  My brother was in a similar situation only a few years back and here is what he advises.  There is not much pressure for students belonging in the 1st year, making it quite simple to prepare for JEE Mains. You can easily schedule your time and prepare accordingly as and when required. However, you should also take into account that it can result in bad scores in the semester exam. And if by any chance you do not acquire a good rank in JEE Main, then you will possibly have no choice but to continue pursuing your course. It can also result in a lack of interest in the branch you are currently in. Since NIT Sikkim is a newly established institute, you will not get the best facilities or faculties which you can in various other NITs. However, there are several opportunities in the institute as well. You will need to work diligently towards your branch to do well.  So, take all these factors into consideration, and decide wisely.Read more
