Q1. According to the JEE official reports, students doing self–study forcracking the entrance exam are more in numbers as compared to students taking coaching classes. How expert coaching classes help students in qualifying JEE exams?
Ans: See, to crack any competitive exam whether a student wants to take coaching or not is very subjective. The fact why students want to take coaching is because a competitive exam is a relative exam while school / board exams are absolute exams. Relative exam means you have to perform relatively better than your peers to be selected. The core objective of a competitive exam is to select the best possible brain among thethis scenario coaching institutions play vital role:
- They act as academic managers for the students to schedule their studies as per the set pattern in sync with the competitive exams
- The faculty members at reputed coaching institutions like Career Point are mostly IITians, NITians, , and graduates from reputed college and universities. They have ample experience and extremely better than school teachers.
- Coaching institutions are expert in changing the teaching pattern as per the current trend. They are pattern proof.
- Coaching institutions like Career Pont have dedicated Research and Development wing to continuously monitor the current trend. Moreover they also provide a competitive edge to their students, through various tests and techniques.
- To the point, relevant and result oriented Study Material provided by coaching institutions also plays a commendable role.
- Regular tests and performance analysis with tips on improvement are part of preparation cycle.
- Doubt Removal Sessions, Problem Solving Skills and enhancement of Examination temperament in a planned manner is possible through expert coaching institutions only.
Q2. After the implementation of new IIT admission policy from 2015 onwards, do you think aspirants will have more chance of clearing the JEE Advanced exam since the top 20 percentile criteria is not compulsory now? (Top 20 percentile or Minimum 75 percent marks, whichever is lesser is required now)
Ans: Yes, definitely as all those students who due to any circumstance couldn’t able to perform well in boards will be benefitted. Secondly there are cases where students are good in PCM or PCB but not in language papers. Repeater students will also get benefited as they will be relieved of improving their board marks. There were approximately 240 students who cracked JEE Advanced but couldn’t able to make it to IITs just because of top 20 percentile criteria which is useless.
Q3. As per the official reports of 2014, from the total students who qualified in JEE Main, 85%-90% students scored less percent of marks as in their JEE Advance 2014. What can be the reason for this?
Ans: This clearly indicates that JEE-Main and JE-Advanced are two different types of exams. IITs have tried to maintain the standard of the question paper so as to select the substantial student mass. Obviously for IITs let best brain be encouraged.
|Game of Speed and Accuracy||Game of Application of Concepts|
|Direct Questions||Multiple applications in one question|
|Multiple choice single correct||Multiple choice multiple correct|
|More questions needed to be attempted||Reason assertion and match the following type questions are also part of the question paper|
|JEE Main is the first and foremost gateway, must be taken seriously||This is undoubtedly the gateway to IITs.. At this juncture very important|
Q4. What could be the preparation strategy which can ensure improvement in JEE Advanced score as compared to their JEE Main scores?
Ans: See, JEE-Advanced is actually the game of application of concepts, not just speed and accuracy like that of JEE-Main. So the difference lies here JEE-Main is the game of speed and accuracy and JEE-Advanced is the game of application of concepts in stipulated time.
- If you have good command over 70% [here command means command – true expertise] of any competitive exam syllabus, then you can be sure about your success, provided you convert your knowledge into score during those 6 hours.
- Practice more and more questions in a set time is the only key to success. Later one should critically able to examine his /her performance.
- Preparation for any competitive exam requires six key ingredients that isRight Guidance, Smart Hard Work, Logical Approach, Study Skills, Test Paper attempting strategy, Performance Analysis and Time Management
- One should be aware of selecting the questions that is which questions are meant to be left.
- Thorough knowledge of concepts and its applications cam only be mastered by solving questions side by side of the topic
- Question solving should be under the guidance of any expert is highly recommended be it a coaching institute, a teacher, an elder brother or any friend as it helps in rectifying the mistakes instantly.
- For theory part it is not required to refer so many books it is just a wastage of time. Select the proper to the point and concise study material like that of Career Point.
- How to prepare notes is again a very important task that usually students neglect. It should be fair and having some space left may be a vertical on each page or a complete left page. This will help students to write the difficult topics on that space for quick reference at the time of revision.
- Revision of complete syllabus with a vision is again an art and must be followed diligently.
Q5. Now that the exam date for JEE Advanced 2015 has been announced, and also only six months are left for JEE Main 2015, what preparation plan and strategy do you suggest to the students to balance their Class XII board preparation along with JEE preparations?
- In case if a student is taking coaching then coaching institutes are taking care of Board + JEE preparation like what we have implemented at Career Point. We at Career Point is taking care of board preparation since beginning but now implemented it in more structured manner as per the new pattern. A balance is required like we have a mix of testing pattern competitive as well board. 1 test per month will definitely be on board pattern to provide good practice to students.
- See the subject is same so a student needs not to be panic just have to practice Board Test papers so as to secure good marks and also have a practice to write test papers as per board pattern.
- He/ She must focus on JEE-Main first as this is not only the gateway to IITs but also helped him/her to get into good NITs in case if he couldn’t able to do well in JEE-Advanced.
- Revision of all the topics must be done with a vision. No need to read any new topic but need to strengthen the weak areas after completion of the course.
- Plan is strategically understand the pattern of examination and how to write the test paper, last year papers must be solved, NCERT Examplar are must to refer. Important Derivations and formulas should be on tips.
- Don’t refer same topic with various books as it is merely wastage of time. Prepare Shorts, Diagrams and Ready reckoner side by side for revision of important topics.
Q6. You interact with a lot of students on a frequent basis. What are the important topics for Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics that you think students must focus on to perform well in JEE Main and Advanced 2015?
Ans:Normally the paper consists of the entire syllabus. Still I list out few chapters witch contribute relatively more in papers.
- Physics: Newtons Laws of Motion, Work Enery Power, Conservation Laws, Rotation Motion, Electrostatics, EMI, Heat and Thermodynamics, Nuclear Physics and Radio Activity, Semiconductor.
- Chemistry: Redox Reactions, Electrochemistry, Chemical Kinetics, GOC, P Block Elements.
- Maths: Conic Section, P&C, Probabilty, Quadratic Equation, Definite Integration, Differential Equation, Vector and 3D, Complex Number.
Q7. Please suggest important books for Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics that are very important and help the JEE aspirants prepare in the best way.
Ans: To the point concise and relevant course material as per competitive exam point of view. Notes of some renowned faculty or coaching institutions. Some books are fixed for
Q8. How should a candidate prepare himself/herself for the D-Day (The exam day-as a lot of students get nervous and lose concentration)? What would you advise to ensure they feel confident and give their best shot during the exam?
Things to remember for the last
- In last few days it is not advisable to refer new study material. Whatever you have solved in past months go through that properly again and through the notes given by teachers.
- Solve mock papers to get acclimatized with Examination Environment.
- Read NCERT books for Organic and Inorganic Chemistry.
Strategy to take exam should be as follows:
- Scrutinize the test paper first.
- Mark the questions which you feel very easy, easy and at last difficult as per your understanding.
- Solve the paper sequentially with the most easy first and then increase the difficulty level.
- Don’t waste too much of time on any single question.
- Don’t be emotional or sentimental towards a question while solving.
- Time can be managed by solving easy questions first and saving sometime for more difficult questions in sequential manner.
- Be confident, calm and energetic.
- Don’t take panic in any case.
- You should have faith in yourself and your preparation.
Q9. Any other message you would like to share with the JEE 2015 aspirants?
Students should take the exam with full confidence without any panic. Don’t take stress just enhance the speed and accuracy and compete with your own-self first. Try to better your performance test by test. Moreover, not every IITian is successful and not every successful person is an IITian. Just follow your dreams and again try to achieve with new vigor. If you loose confidence you loose everything.
