Most of the students struggle in the preparation of IIT-JEE and Board together. IIT – JEE is highly reputed exam for engineering students .Their full focus is only on this exam. But at the same time Board preparation can not be ignored because class 12th result is given weightage in JEE -Mains exams. Board exam should not be underestimated as it greatly affects the JEE -Mains ranking.
Now Big question is how to synchronize the JEE and Class 12th board preparation and get high scores in both the exams. This is because there is less time gap between two exams. IIT -JEE Mains qualifying exam is conducting in January . Board exams start in February and JEE Mains is conducted in the first week of April. So students find it difficult to prepare for both the exams simultaneously.
This is possible only when you do proper planning and make proper schedule.
Here are some points which should be taken into consideration while preparation-
1. Make a Strategy
JEE is a really important and difficult examination. So, before you begin preparation for the examination, it is importance to make a strategy. A good strategy is half the work done and will make it easy for you to reach your goal. Make a plan which include the syllabus of both the board exams as well as that of the JEE. Now break down the syllabus into separate sections, topic wise. Each topic should have a deadline and it should strictly be completed in that time period. However, you should be realistic in your goals. You should only set the targets that you feel you can achieve. Do not try to do everything at one time. It would only add to the stress and will frustrate you.
2. Focus on the theory and concepts
JEE -Mains focus on practice and application of concepts where as Board exams based upon theory. For Boards , you must follow NCERT books thoroughly. And for JEE – Mains , you have to learn the applications of concepts.
