How to Prepare for JEE Main 2023?

Below mentioned are the recommended books, mock test and previous year’s exam paper.

JEE Main 2023 Preparation Tips

  • Start from Class XI: Beginning the preparation from Class XI is always advisable, as you have chosen your stream and are conscious if you are going to sit for JEE Main. As two years are more than enough for healthy and good planning, starting at XI will also save you from taking a drop after XII.
  • Be comprehensive with the topics: keeping the concepts simple is really important for students, as the questions can be set in every way. Students should also answer complicated questions with simple definitions.
  • Practice Test-Focused Questions: After the learning process, candidates must practice exam-oriented questions, which often allow them to evaluate and correct their errors.
  • Get Good Study Material: Each book uses different principles to clarify methodologies. Some texts, while some use technical jargon, provide simple explanations. Candidates should use books that are most suitable for them in a language that they are familiar with.
  • Practice Sample Papers: Sample papers are the blueprints of real exam papers that familiarize students with the pattern of the test, degree of complexity, relevant topics replicated through the years, scheme of marking and time constraints. Students must therefore prepare Sample Papers or JEE Main Previous Year Question Papers.

The Important Things to Remember

Here are a couple of essential things you should keep in mind if you want to crack JEE without any problem:

  • You will get to choose the examination mode during the application form fill-up process. Once you choose a certain language and submit the application form, you won’t be able to change it. The JEE exam will be held in different languages such as Odia, Hindi, Bengali, English, Assamese, Kannada, Marathi, Gujarati, Telugu, Punjabi, Malayalam, Tamil, and Urdu.
  • Make sure you fill out the application form before the deadline to avoid any last-minute mishaps.
  • Consider downloading the confirmation page after you submit the form. You also need to keep the form in a safe place.
  • Make sure you scan the images in the required format.

Things You Need to Avoid

Here are the things you need to avoid:

  • Don’t miss the deadline as you will never be able to fill out and submit your application form after the deadline.
  • Pay close attention and always enter the correct details. Every year many candidates fail to give JEE exam as they enter incorrect details. Hence, cross-check thoroughly before submitting the application form.
  • Don’t upload images in an improper format. This is because the authorities might reject your application if the uploaded images are in the incorrect format.
