No, I couldn’t.
Q 3. Did you take Coaching Classes? If yes, how did they help in your story?
Yes, I had joined. I have taken my coaching classes for JEE along with my class 12th in NRI Academy which is one of the leading institutions in Andhra Pradesh. As it was a residential college, I studied there. Mostly the lectures were very helpful in my story of success. A good listening is as helpful as a good lecture. Any institution is helpful but before joining keep the note of the faculty.
Q 4. How did you manage JEE Main Preparation along with your Class 12th exam?
That was quite easy for me. I didn’t have to pay extra attention for the studies.
Q 5. What were your Strong and Weak areas? How did you prepare and what special efforts did you put for improving them?
I was strong in Mathematics and my weakest area was Physics. I prepared accordingly but I got better score in Mathematics and Chemistry but low scores in Physics. As there is no sectional cutoff in JEE Main, be efficient enough in scoring in your strong subjects.
Q 6. What mock papers did you take?
I haven't taken any mock tests online as there were enough tests conducted by our institution. So, the institution you joined, matters a lot.
Q 7. Write some of the Preparation tips for someone who is starting 4 months before the exam?
Make a good strategy before starting preparation for JEE Main. Start from the subjects in which you’re strong. Refer good books, join a crash course. Be more cautious as there is a provision of negative marking. So, please be careful while attempting those questions for which you’re not sure.
Q 8. Physics: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section.
I didn’t follow any particular strategy to excel Physics but I studied from HC Verma and Arihant Publications. Whatever the books maybe, the contents vary only a little so you can follow any book or else go with the material supplied by the institution.
Q 9. Chemistry: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section.
As, it a vast subject you need to prepare all the topics in order to score good marks and it is an easy subject to prepare. A focused study is needed for preparing Organic Chemistry. Better you go with the Arihant publications for all Organic and Inorganic Chemistry. NCERT books are good for the basics.
Q 10. Mathematics: Mention the Strategy and Books Followed for this section.
For Mathematics, I followed Cengage Publications. This book was enough as it covers all the topics from Mathematics. You need more preparation for JEE Advance exam as it is very difficult.
