No matter how hard you have worked, or how much you have practised: the last few days before an important exam can be nerve wrecking. And for almost 15 lakh students every year, the week before their JEE exam is the one of the toughest to handle. We, at Toppr, understand what students go through and since so many of us on the team have been through the ordeal: we decided to reach out and help students.Rohitashwa Choudhary(B.Tech 2007, IIT Bombay) and Rohan Khadatkar(B.Tech + M.Tech 2014, IIT Bombay) conducted a live Webinar session, which received an overwhelming response of over 1600 registrations from JEE aspirants.
The Webinar was a mix of some counselling from the JEE veterans covering strategies in the last week that would help a student make the most of the little time left, and yet not over-reaching in the final moments. In addition to the free-flowing guidance: the two IITians also answered select questions from the live chat with the audience.

Here are some of the key takeaways of the Webinar:
- Not getting your JEE centre of choice can be nerve-wracking but it’s very common. Don’t stress over it!
- Solving one paper daily in an allotted time in the last week can really help in exam simulation!
- 1 day before JEE: first half, study & revise. Post lunch, just relax!
- And the topic probably never touched before- Loo breaks may not be such a bad thing in the middle of your exam. Get anything that distracts you, out of the way.
- If you have opted for Computer based test, it is wise to solve at least 5 mock tests of those to acclimatize yourself with the environment. It is important!
- Don’t start a new chapter in the last 7 days. Revise on the things you’ve already studied.
