Before you go ahead with the article, tell yourself – ‘During last months of my JEE 2018 preparation, I’m not going to back down. I’ll give my best. I will stop at nothing to see my dreams come true .”
There you go. Now take a deep breath and relax.
With this attitude and determination, plan your four months to JEE Mains and Advanced. For the better part of your student life, you’ve been preparing for this particular moment. Only you know of the endless hours of hard work, doubt and anxiety you’ve been experienced. While reading advice might annoy you a bit, do pay heed to it. You may find some new approach to your preparations.
Now is the time when you should’ve completed studying all topics of importance. However, If there are some major topics yet to be covered, create a study plan and finish studying the left out concepts, chapter by chapter.
For instance: If you’re yet to study Gravitation in detail- split the chapter in 3 days and complete understanding the concepts, thoroughly. Take an extra day to practice if you’re not confident, but don’t procrastinate on studying heavy concepts after mid-February. Also, study your revision notes, it will save time. So, from now onwards make it a point to take good notes.
