JEE-2019: Common mistakes JEE aspirants should avoid at any cost


The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is the most difficult engineering entrance exam for admission to top institutes in India. JEE consists of Main and Advanced papers.

JEE Main is being held twice in 2019 (January and April). It is a difficult exam and aspirants must ensure there are no flaws in their preparation strategy.Here are some JEE mistakes to avoid at any cost

Don’t start preparation late, have a proper study plan

One of the biggest mistakes JEE aspirants make is starting their preparation late. They must start preparing early so that they have enough time and a systematic approach to cover the entire syllabus. They must know the latest syllabus, exam pattern, weightage, etc. One must plan their study properly and adhere to their schedule. They should focus more on important ones as per weightage.

Do not ignore NCERT books and basic concepts

Some JEE aspirants tend to study only from study material and advanced reference books and ignore basic concepts. However, one must avoid doing this as basics are important. Instead of consulting too many books, they should collect some useful books to avoid confusion. They should first be thorough with NCERT books and then move on to advanced reference books.

Not solving previous papers or not taking mock tests

Another mistake aspirants must avoid is not solving previous question papers and sample papers. They should solve question papers in a timed manner to familiarise with the exam pattern, difficulty level, questioning trends, etc. and manage time better.

They should take mock tests (especially NTA mocks) and analyse their performance on a regular basis, identify weak areas, and work on improving their performance.

Here are some mistakes to avoid during the exam

One of the biggest mistakes students during the exam is not reading the given questions properly. Students tend to misread questions in a hurry or copy incorrect data and end up giving wrong answers. They might also make mistakes in calculations or get confused. This should be avoided too. They should answer only those questions they are confident about to avoid negative marking.

Avoid getting stuck on difficult questions in exam

During the exam, students must also utilise time wisely. They may also find some questions difficult; in such situations, they should avoid getting stuck on those questions as it would be a waste of their time. Instead, they should move on to the remaining questions.

Increase in IIT placements a result of aggressive industry outreach


The placement season at the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) this year brought good news. An overall increase was seen in the number of students getting placed in world’s top companies, with more number of students finding a place in the R&D, electrical, mechanical and computer science sectors.

In the first four days of first placement session, the companies made as many as 3000 job offers, including pre placement offers (PPO) in all the 23 IITs. As compared to 2017, there has been an increase of 30% placements. “This indicates an overall growth in various sectors. The economy is growing and it is reflected in the increasing job opportunities for the students,” said V Ramgopal Rao, IIT Delhi Director.

IITs have become quite aggressive in terms of industry outreach in the last two years, which eventually has helped the institutes to study the industry demands and prepare students for the market.

“We are trying to bridge the gap between the curriculum and the industry demands. For instance, this year Industry Day at IIT Delhi had over 300 companies reaching out to students. So, it is a reflection of how we are reaching out to the industry and connecting with closely, which in turn is getting churning out more employment opportunities,” he says.

According to reports, a US based company offered a package of Rs 1.52 crore to four IIT BHU students. Microsoft hired atleast six students from IIT Roorkee and Kanpur, on an annual package of Rs 1.5 crore. While the officials were reluctant to divulge the details, but they confirmed the high salary offer and good placements were positive indications.

The decision to not reveal the details of the students, says Rao, has been made to avoid undue pressure on the rest of the students.

“By talking about pay packages, we tend to put unnecessary pressure on the students, who wish to pursue careers in other sectors or want to go in for Masters and research,” says Rao.Around 70% students opted for core sectors as against IT, which is an optimistic trend seen this year. “Not all sectors offer similar kind of pay packages. The students must understand that an electrical engineering company will not pay as Google does,” adds the director.

“The good news is that 50% job offers made in the first session, were from the core sector. This indicates that the core sectors are seeing a substantial growth.” Other than Microsoft, companies such as Optum (SDE), Axtria, Honetwell, Indshine, Tata Communications, Tata Steel, HCL, ZS Associates, Novarites, IVP and Smart Cube, L&T ECC, Amazon, Microsoft, Assanjob have hired students across IITs in this placement session.

Follow this two-month strategy to crack JEE Main 2019


With less than three months left for the first session of  JEE Main 2019, here is the two-month strategy to help you prepare efficiently

While November might be a month of festivities for everyone else, but if you are a JEE Main aspirant, it is a crucial time for your future. With less than three months left for the first session of JEE Main 2019, just like you, lakhs of students across India are leaving no stones unturned to secure a seat in prestigious institutes like IITs and NIITs.

Your preparation during these final months has a large impact on your final performance. Additionally, factors like your attitude, ability to stay calm under pressure and time-management skill also affect your chances of getting admission to your dream college. Making your life a wee bit easier, here is a two-month strategy to ace the exams:

 November 7 – 10

  • Summarise each chapter: Write down the highlights of each chapter of every subject in a notebook to easily access them whenever you want. Since you won’t have enough time for an in-depth revision one day before the exam, these notes will help you remember the key points.
  • Create flashcards: Besides this, make a large stack of flashcards containing all important formulae, concepts and diagrams to learn them better.
  • Clarify your doubts: You can also use e-learning apps to clarify your doubts regarding a particular topic. These digital platforms let you upload a picture of your problem and chat with an expert to solve it. What’s more, through these platforms you can keep a tab on your progress.

November 11 – 30

  • Take mock tests: Once you have gone through your entire syllabus, it’s time to start taking mock tests from reliable sources to get yourself familiar with the exam environment. Apart from offline coaching centres, there are online platforms where you can enrol yourself for mock tests. The JEE Main exam’s question paper is designed to test your aptitude, analytical, logical and reasoning skills. Thus, taking mock tests will not only help you improve your time management skill but also make you aware of the exam pattern.
  • Work on your weak areas: Writing the test is just a job half done. After the test, make sure to evaluate your paper and find out your mistakes. Work on your weak spots to resolve them well before the actual exam takes place.


You are now only a month away from the first sitting of JEE Mains. This means you need to put all your focus on studying.

  • Make a study plan:It’s better to make a study plan for every day to ensure you are picking up all the loose ends. You may know your strengths and weaknesses, try to allocate an equal amount of time for each subject.
  • Prepare for online:More importantly, acquaint yourself with the various aspects of online examination as JEE Main is a computer-based exam. While some of you may be used to taking tests on pen and paper, prepare yourself for the computer-based format. You can do this by either visiting practice centres or practising on e-learning apps.
  • Select the order of your subjects: Since the question paper will have three different sections for each subject, find out which order is preferable for you to get the best results.
  • Keep revising: Apart from taking online tests, don’t forget to jog your memory by going back to the notes and flashcards you made earlier.
  • Healthy competition: Some of you may not like to group study in the last month, but being in a competitive setting may have a positive impact on your mindset.

Tips For JEE Aspirants: How to Utilise Diwali Vacations.

The time is even more important for senior students who aspire to take on competitive exams like JEE Main and Advanced, BITSAT or the likes of NTSE and KVPY. Although it is true that these exams require continuous practice and cannot be conquered in a few days, these vacations offer a golden opportunity to strategies your preparation. As these exams have millions of test takers and a very less success probability, it mandates a sound test taking temperament.

Here are a few suggestions for serious JEE/ BITSAT/ NTSE/ KVPY aspirants which they can follow to utilize their holiday time optimally.

  • Devote few hours to core subjects: For students pursuing science or high scholars aiming for NTSE, science and math are very important and thus their core subjects. Thus, it is very important for students to devote an hour per subject. This does not necessarily need to be reading books or practicing questions. A lot of educational videos and tutorials are present online which can be referred for better understanding the concepts.
  • Balance time between the subjects: As most of the competitive exams have sectional cutoffs, it is important for learners to divide time evenly between these subjects to ensure uniform concept strengthening in each.
  • Focus more on concept tests: As students have not completed their syllabus for the exams, there is no point in rehearsing the exams. Rather, this time should be used to build concepts and students should focus more on concept tests.
  • Track your preparation level and strengths: Being systematic in approach requires being aware of one’s strengths and weaknesses which can be done easily by introspection. During the long break, students can easily track their strengths and weaknesses by merely practicing and taking a note of concepts where they are faltering regularly.
  • Make SMART goals and set deadlines : It is very important for the students to get a nerve of the whole syllabus and chalk out a strategy. The goals should be Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time Bound. If a student understands his core strengths, he/she can easily set realistic goals and then set timelines for their achievement.
  • Devote time to hobby and interests as well: However, a student should also make sure to utilize the time for recreation as well. 

Following this checklist is not very difficult but it requires discipline to sustain the routine. Though the results may not be evident quickly, the practice will pay off with strong concepts and eventually better performance in exams.
