Study plan for JEE 2018:
November has already crossed the half way line, and we are nearer to the year end. JEE 2018 is scheduled on 8th April 2018. With just four months left for JEE 2018, are you still thinking about how you should divide your preparation for JEE on a monthly basis so as to score better marks in this exam? Are you still making your monthly study plan to avoid that last-minute stress and anxiety?
Well, don’t fret, sit back and just relax!
In this article, we’ll share a month-wise study plan for all of you.
Not only will these valuable tips help you prepare better for JEE 2018, but they will also increase your chances of cracking the exam this year.
Before we get started, let me briefly tell you the topics you need to cover in the remaining months. It will help you plan your schedule.
- Modern Physics and Optics
- Solid state, Solution Colligative Properties, Electrochemistry, Chemical Kinematics, Surface Chemistry and Colloidal State
- D & F block elements
- Co-ordination Compounds
- Organic Chemistry along with Biomolecules and Polymers
- Limit, Continuity
- Application of Derivative
- Definite and Indefinite Integral
- Application of Integral
- 3 D
- Linear Programming
In the months of November and December, you can allot lesser time for maths. But, whether you like it or not, you should have completed your syllabus by now. In the last few months, you cannot really afford to study something new. Also, please don’t forget that you also have to study for your Class XII board exams (unless you are a dropper) in March. So, for that, you need to study exclusively in the month of February along with your JEE preparations.
Right now, you just have roughly one month for each subject (excluding the revision bit).
December to Mid-January
You should focus on Class 11th part; the subject wise topics are mentioned here for quick review:
One can complete Mechanics, Heat and Waves within this period
Mechanics : 1 Month, Heat: 7 days & Waves: 7 days
- Atomic Structure
- Gaseous state
- Equilibrium : Chemical and Ionic
- Periodic Table
- Complete Co-ordinate Geometry
- Permutation & Combination
- Complex Number
- Quadratic Equation
Mid-January to March End
This is the last period which you can utilise for JEE 2018 preparation, as most students complete their Board syllabi by this time and are generally free to prepare for the JEE topics and that too with a stronger action plan. Students must prepare a chapter-wise plan while revising. Preparing revision notes as you study is important because that will reduce the time spent in revising earlier lessons later on. Also, you need to spend these last few days on solving last year’s question papers only to get yourself fully prepared for facing every question with utmost confidence. While solving these papers, make sure that you don’t take time beyond the standard hours allowed in the actual examination hall.
Remember: The aim while following the above plan should be to study for 12 hours. Yeah, I know it’s not possible to study with 100% efficiency for 12 hours but try for at least 70% efficiency.
Whether you are an early riser or a night owl, stick to the following schedule as late nights might create havoc with your preparations.

Time Table to be Followed During College Days:
|7:30 am||Wake up and plan for the day|
|8:00 – 14:00||College hours (study for JEE even during college hours, whenever you find time for it.||Organic chemistry, maths, mugging formulae, etc.|
|2:15 – 3:00||Lunch break||Rest for some time|
|3:00 – 5:00||Study|
|5:00 – 6:00||Go for a walk, spend some time with friends|

|6:30 – 8:30||Study|
|8:30 – 9:15||Dinner+ Leisure|
|9:15 – 11:15||Study|
|11:15 – 12:00||Buffer time for pending chapters|
