Competitive exams like NEET/JEE require months of preparation and with the level of competition today, one cannot afford to make silly mistakes. While all of us fret about the syllabus & main exam, we may forget to pay attention to the common mistakes which are made by students while preparing for exams like NEET/JEE. We have listed a few mistakes which you should try and avoid.
Buying Heaps of Books
Most JEE aspirants start out by spending thousands of rupees on buying books and study material they never ever refer to. So, stick to your school textbooks and NCERT books. For reference, you can form study groups and share books. Study material provided by coaching institutes and online study material for JEE exams often contain gist of all the good books in easy to understand language.
Stick with One of the Subjects
It is easier to get above average scores in all the three subjects instead of exceptionally high score in any one of them. So, maintain a balance between Maths, Physics and Chemistry during JEE exam preparation. Balanced scores work in your favor in the final exam ranking.
Ignoring Questions They cannot Solve
When you solve previous year question papers, sample papers or mock tests, it is not enough to see how many questions you have solved correctly. You must understand why and how the other questions should have been solved. Ask your teachers and practice until you get them right. This is the only way to improve your JEE scores.
Learning & Practicing Questions but not Taking Enough Tests
Taking JEE exam is akin to boxing. No matter how much theory you learn and how many practice exercises you do, you have to get in the ring to learn to fight. Similarly, you need to take timed tests (preferably in the simulated exam environment) to score well in the actual exam.
Overlooking Class XI Syllabus
You need to revise old topics as well. JEE syllabus includes topics covered in Class XI and Class XII. Hence, 8-10 months before JEE exam, start at least one chapter a day from your Class XII books too.
Too Much or Too Little Stress about JEE/NEET
Now, we keep hearing how we should not take too much pressure about the exam. If you have studied well and practiced enough, you will score decently in the exam too. However, there are some who are at the other end of the stick. They are so carefree that they would hardly bother to do their last-minute revisions before exams. Some stress can give you an adrenaline rush but too much stress breaks you down.
Waking up all Night a day before the exam
If you wake up all night, chances are you will feel sleep while giving the actual exam. To make sure that your brain is alert and bright at the time of exam, get a full night sleep and eat light breakfast on the day of the exam.
Marking all your answers on the ORS sheet in last half an hour
This is applicable to paper-based JEE exam. If you have decided to mark all your answers on the ORS sheet only at the fag end of the exam, you might find yourself gasping for time. In hurry, you might also mark options incorrectly and you won’t be able to change them too.
Discussing question paper performance with your peers
After exam, avoid discussing the question paper with your peers. You may analyze it to fine-tune your strategy for the next paper but do not indulge in defending your answers. It unnecessarily wastes your energy and time, and may dent your confidence.
Lack of Prioritizing
Failing to prioritize between your social life and study time is essential otherwise you will be left under prepared for the exam.
