JEE Mains 2022 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 paper that familiarize students with the pattern of the test, degree of complexity, relevant topics replicated through the years, scheme of marking and time constraint. Students must therefore prepare Sample Papers or Previous Year Issue Papers.
