No, this post isn't on the chapter on statistics. This post will talk about statistical data of my life during the 2 years of JEE. Many of you have been asking this and I think it would be worth to dedicate a post to this.
- Number of study hours (I was enrolled in a dummy school):
- Class 11th - around 5-6 hours on non coaching days, 7-8 hours on coaching days (including 4 hours of coaching)
- Class 12th - around 10 hours per day, irrespective of coaching/non coaching day
- Test scores:
- Performance in first national level test - 153/240
- Performance in FIITJEE phase tests (once every 3 months): top 20 ranks, 13 being worst, 1st being best
- Performance in FIITJEE open test at the end of standard 11th - National Rank 6th
- Best performance in FIITJEE AITS - National Rank 2, 99.9 percentile
- Worst performance in FIITJEE AITS - National Rank 51, 99.7 percentile
- Average performance in FIITJEE AITS - Top 50 ranks, 99.8 percentile
- Number of sleeping hours: 8 hours on non coaching days, 9 hours on coaching days (general time used to be from 10 pm to 6.30 am)
- Number of books used: Around 10 per subject. Instead of using books per subject, I preferred books per topic (chapter)
- Number of weekly coaching hours: 4 per subject (12 hours a week overall)
- Number of girlfriends during JEE days: 0 :P
- Number of friends during JEE days: almost 0
- Number of family functions attended during JEE days: 2
- Number of hours wasted: I used to waste around 4 hours a day in 11th standard in playing cricket :D
Some people might also want to know other non-statistical data which may be useful
- I owned a smartphone during JEE preparation, with full internet access. I had immense control over myself that I do not misuse the mobile and waste time. I believe technology helps a lot in better development and so, I used the phone a lot (in my non study hours). DO NOT SHOW THIS POST AND ASK YOUR PARENTS TO BUY YOU A SMARTPHONE. You can achieve everything in your life without a smartphone as well!
- I had an active Facebook account during JEE days and I used to post a lot of bullshit :P
- I was an active cricket player in 11th standard. However, I did not waste any time during 12th standard
- I also owned a laptop, which I believe helped me to download ebooks which aren't easily available. (PS - do not ask me to post links, find them yourself!). However, laptop isn't really needed for JEE preparation. You can purchase it once you formally join engineering.
I hope the above facts and figures will help you to understand that IITians are no super-humans. I am sure other authors (Karan and Shobhna) will agree.
If you want to know any more facts and figures, feel free to ask, but please don't be as silly as - Aman how many hours did you spend in shitting?
