Striking a balance between boards and JEE prep


Hi all. Let us begin by wishing all of you a very happy, prosperous and belated new year :p
Guys, this is a joint post. Myself(i.e Karan) and Dhruv collaborated to come up with this latest piece. So between us all your doubts should be cleared.
We saw a lot of comments asking how to juggle board exams and JEE together. Well, as far as you guys are concerned, JEE and board are like oil and water- totally immiscible; Or are they? This post will guide you through the most turbulent time of JEE prep- the end. I’ll be writing the first part, then Dhruv will pitch in.
First of all, let me tell you this- board marks MATTER A LOT for JEE Main. I secured 255 marks in JEE Main and 90% in boards; My rank was 2166. I have a friend in my division who secured 264 marks and 91%; His rank was around 400. That itsy-bitsy, measly 1% can take your rank from 4 digit to 3 digit. So DON’T TAKE YOUR BOARD EXAMS LIGHTLY. No matter how well prepared you are for JEE, board exams demand of you something totally different; the ability to present what you want to say in a proper way, the meaning of which can be gleaned even by a child reading the paper. That is the intent of board examiners.
Now, on to the intricacies woven by the combination of boards and JEE-Main; How do you tackle both together? Well, guys, fact of the matter is- they are both one and the same thing as far as JEE Main is concerned. Let’s talk firstly about those who will get some time (a week at least) for coming up to speed with their prep after board. For you guys, the drill is simple- keep your head clear and finish up your boards in the best way possible. You can practice MCQs during the board if you want to. If you have prepared well enough, a week should be enough time to get into the feel of JEE Main again. Chill out for a few hours the day board exams finish, then gear up for JEE Main. Also, if you have more than a week, solve a couple of full portion papers. That way you will be well and truly set for facing the actual examination.
Another important thing, which stands true for everyone- JEE Main ALWAYS has some questions pertaining to very out-of-the-way topics, like semiconductors, telecommunication etc. in physics, qualitative and quantitative organic analysis in chemistry, and stuff like Poisson’s distribution etc. in Maths. These things will be given in the best possible way in your board textbooks. I’d suggest you to do these topics with a tad extra seriousness. Read and remember the theory carefully; Questions will be mostly based on the text, nothing fancy will be asked. But students tend to ignore these topics, which pulls down the score by quite a bit. So don’t commit that blunder. Those of you aiming specifically for JEE-Advanced- You guys could use the extra motivation of having cracked JEE Main with an awesome score. And believe me, you WILL get a boost of confidence for Advanced if your Main total comes out to be decent enough.
Now, for those of you who will have less than a week after your boards. Most of you will be from CBSE board. Well, the bad thing is-you don’t get much time to prepare. But the good thing is- you are studying for boards from the GODBOOK for JEE-Main; NCERT. A thorough go-through of NCERT will put you miles ahead of others as far as JEE Main is concerned. Inorganic chemistry learnt in this time will also help for JEE-Advanced. So take heart, and cheer up! You guys also have an edge. Details for you guys are herewith presented by Dhruv:
Thanks a lot Karan! Hey there, guys! I was in a CBSE school.. a 'proper' school with 90%+ attendance (not a dummy), and faced a similar issue for JEE Mains. To put mysef in perspective, I scored 262 in Mains (yes, I know I messed up) and 96.8% in Boards – that saved my rank... 352 eventually.
I'll be focussing on just the CBSE guys here. Say you're done with your course and its February. Plan out a revision schedule; sort material according to difficulty and span. Make sure to devote as much time as possible, and not to stress out at the same time... According to me, you can start off reading up theory and subtle MCQs just tricky enough (and a sample paper twice a week, no more – dont over do anything).. Forget studying wrt Advanced. Devote yourself to GOOD questions (not all easy). All the prep you've done till now would take you through. Keep the real hard questions for the time you're bugged – as a bonus to your conscience. Read through the NCERT thoroughly for Physics and Chemistry. Esp. Chemistry. Your mains is completely covered by NCERT.. Just need to read between the lines, as my teacher said!
Trust NCERT, no matter how trivial it seems... Try to find the insight.. Once your boards near, start preparing for boards entirely and keep the MCQs as your bonus! Stay devoted to boards.. Tell you what: my friend @ 272 in Mains and 95.8% in Boards got a rank of 800s. You see how important CBSE boards are...
During boards, chill out. Dont overdo.. you'll mess up - and that's the worst you could do!
When boards are done, or about to be done, leave tests... leave questions! Most important is to learn from all you've done wrong and not DO AS MuCH AS YOU CAN... not repeating the mistakes is the key. The week that you have, read through the scaries chapters – say, Semiconductors, Waves, Linear Algebra, Inorganic, polymers etc. And make notes for yourself. Brief, all important notes. I made 7 pages of notes, never got time to refer.. but writing helps in referring.! :)
Day before Mains, dont study too hard! Go easy, wach a movie. Play games.! Chill out your mind! Next day – Rock it!
Well.. feel free to post your queries! We wish ou the best for Mains and The Boards.
PS- Guys my friend is from state board, whereas Dhruv's is from CBSE. That made the difference that appears as a discrepancy!

  1. Amazing post after a very long time... need many more before JEE 2016...

    But I've got a doubt, Karan told that his friend got 264 and 91% and managed to get a rank around 400, but Dhruv's friend got 272 and 95.8% but got a rank around 800's!!!! How is that possible? What type of sorcery is this!!!

    1. I was also going to ask the same question 😂😂 may be the two of them didn't appear for the exam in the same year . that's why there is a difference .

    2. Difference in boards created the difference, we guess. My friend is from Maharashtra state board, while Dhruv's friend is from CBSE.

      Delete
    3. Indeed!
      You'll see more of that coming!

      For a more surprising case: at 94% in Maha state board and 32x in Mains, Tanuj Kaza secured AIR 2.. Now how cool is that!
      At 344 and 93% CBSE, a friend had his rank in 400s... So, there you go!

      Sorcery is what you'll be witnessing soon!

  3. Exactly the post I wanted and really a good one indeed.
    I had a question.I am preparing for JEE (A) and I think my basics are strong.I can solve a few questions but if the same comes in the exam I am unable to do it and hence I get a poor score.I am planning to completely read and solve class 11 and 12 NCERT by Feb 15.My boards end on the 31st of march :( and I've got a little more than a week after that.I find the JEE M archive easy (and most problems of the advanced archive are within my grasp) but I am still not confident though.What do you think I should do in the 15 days after 15 feb and considering I have a 15 day gap in between the boards(from 16th WebTechnology to 31st Economics) and the 9 odd days after boards?!?
    JEE M is on 9th of April.

    Thank you once again :)

    1. Not to discourage you. But JEE(A) won't test you on a 'few' questions. You'll have to solve 60q in 180 min, then repeat the feat :p So practice as hard as you can till 15 february, that's for certain. After 15, you can maybe reduce the amount of problem practice you do, and focus more on NCERT 12th. Once the boards start, they'll be a cakewalk for you, but at the same time stay devoted to them during the time they last, as pointed out by Dhruv :) Also, going by what you are saying, you can give JEE Main only on the basis of what you studied till before the boards. Just make sure to give a couple of, or maybe more, papers of JEE Main pattern, level and during the JEE Main exam hours. That should do it :)

    2. Thank you.
      Also what part of JEE(A) should I start preparing for from right now?Or should I not.Because assuming that I do clear JEE M ,it will be difficult to keep a lot of stuff pending.I have a knowledge of the basics of every chapter but time bound practice is what I lack.It is not possible at home and the FIITJEE AITS are a bit too much. :/

    1. Depends whether you want to go for JEE Main, Advanced or board. For board, NCERT is sufficient. For Main, you can go for the book MCQ, by A Das Gupta. For Advanced, you'll need to do a hell lot more than these :p

      Delete
    2. A great material for JEEM preparations would be NCERT Exemplar Questions, which I seem to have forgotten to mention!
      It has the absolutely similar framework of Mains and is exhaustive...
      It'll boost your Mains prep, and very fast, and can be done alongside Board preps

    is there any conversion for aits to jee ranks ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. At no time is it possible to predict your rank. That is because so much depends on the D-day. I have seen institute toppers slip to 4-digit ranks, because of the pattern of the paper.. And some averagely performing students get 3-digit ranks. Base point is- why waste your time thinking about your rank? Enjoy your preparation instead :)

    I really need some help....I was performing decently uptill now in my coaching(fiitjee)...but I performed pathetic in my last phase test and AITS Open
    After lots of thinking I figured out that I messed up with too many books and also neglected NCERT.(never completed one fully and jumped to next)My list of books
    Phy- HCV,DCP set,New pattern,IRODOV
    Chem- Himanshu pandey,RCM Pbahadur,op tandon,Solomons,JD lee
    Maths- Mlk,SKgoyal(coordinate and algebra),RD Sharma obj,Sl loney Amit agarwal,
    Along with fiitjee and reso modules.So I came up with this plan from now onwards in class 12
    PHY- NCERT exemplar,FIITJEE package,Archive DCP
    CHEM Ncert exemplar,package,Himanshu pandey
    Maths
    Fiitjee+reso package
    Along with past year problems...
    Please comment on my strategy

    1. I guess you could neglect binomial theorem and mathematical induction. Try to complete SHM and waves, as they are quite similar. Although SHM involves a bit of mechanics, waves is the easiest application of SHM possible, and both will have good weightage in the physics section.

    1. We are not in a position to give an answer to that, but what I can surely say is that there would surely be an entrance at that level (how CETs and AIEEE became Mains). In general, government seats will have a fair means of choosing students. Rest assured, your effort won't go in vain.

      And anyways, you can always prepare for it. If nothing else, Boards rely on this prep. What are your concerns anyways?

  45. Excellent sum-up of one of the biggest dilemmas that many IIT aspirants have. Usually, students gets lost in the way where they will not be in a position to decide if they have to focus on IIT mains or other board exams. As a matter, the fundamentals are same for any exam but the application of them in solving tougher problems and ability to solve them during the exam determines their results. We, at UrbanPro, also provide useful tips and guidance for the students but your methodology of telling is more practical and focused. Hope to see "last minute tips for IIT Mains exam" soon. Good luck!

      HC Verma is quite a good book for beginners. Theory is well elucidated. After reading HCV, practice subjective questions from the same. After that, the list is endless. You could go for DC Pandey, Anurag Mishra, or whichever book YOU feel comfortable with.

I get very irritated and depressed. What should I so that i feel a little less unhappy?
    What I generally do is pick up another subject (inorganic chem) and start memorizing but that is not quality study.
    So what activity do you suggest me to do so that I can start studying properly again in the minimum amount of time?

    1. I don't think there needs to be any change in your approach. Only thing is, you are spared the tension of doing well in the board exams. You still need to work as hard for JEE as ever, maybe more so, now that board does not have weightage and merit will be decided only on the basis of JEE scores. Doing well in the boards never hurts, but if you are totally bent on getting into NITs or IITs, you will get to prepare better.

    3. 1) We haven't. Dear Karan has managed to shell out his precious time to post one for Advanced. And we're always open for questions. Feel free.

      2) Who the fuck are you to post something in that tone? We got a life, bro! Endsems at 'THE IIT-B' if you wish to say. Ask us and we answer. If nothing else, respect someone for what he's done!
      GOOD JOB KARAN! :)

    4. Check the blog again, I have added a post. And one more thing: Mind your language. We are not sitting here for your convenience. I have already countered this question on a previous occasion. We have some commitments too. We too can be busy. You think JEE is the do-all and be-all of one's life? Try coming to IIT, and then surviving under the intense competition here. Life at IITs is not 'chill' as you outsiders have been led to believe. Yes, I understand the frustrations of all of you, but this is no way to voice it on a public forum.
      We are trying to get across as many posts as possible, but you guys have to understand our situation as well.

    9. I don't run away from battle field. I feel you are too dumb to get into an argument with :)

    10. keep doing the good work :) when you find time , you've already helped us students enough , one doesn't need to master preparation methods , authors have shared their experience enough , even if we ask the dumbest question which isn't asked before ,they answer it with a lot of patience.
      and I won't be going anonymous. To the abusive person , haters are just like noise and honking , your presence or absence doesn't make a difference .

  56. Bhaiya loG, I am in a stage of greatest dilemma of my entire life ! actually I am really really interested in cracking JEE and the thing is my family members and my parents…… think that in case I fail to crack JEE and also due to my entire focus upon JEE if I get below 95 percentage marks in class 12th then I would mess it all up. it is so because in case it happens then I would be deprived of IIT and also other career options would be shut down due to less marks in boards ,so the only question I just want to ask is whether I should I take coaching for IIT? also do Such coaching institutions help the students in their preparation for class 12 boards? I gave many scholarship tests also and the result was quite good I got the 90% off at FIITJEE and I got 60% off at Aakash and 75% off at Vidya Mandir classes .now I am in a state of complete dilemma and I am not at all able to decide which coaching institute to join or whether to first focus on boards and then drop for a year and do IIT coaching in the thirteenth year! which option would be better for me can you please suggest? also I just want to tell that my aim is JEE and only and only IIT but my parents also have a value of the words so I just cant ignore them. most of my teachers say thatdoing coaching from class 11th itself for IIT preparation is not a good option as it may result to be a cause of my downfall in the boards. I belong to CBSE board some people suggested me to take a dummy schooland prepare on my own. now I just want to ask one thing whether should I join coaching from class XI itself or should I drop for a year after 12th and then opt for coaching please please please give your valuable advice! #career_confusion_contradiction

  57. Hey guys! I am a JEE 2017 aspirant. Just wanted to know if you have got any hint about whether there will be any boards weightage or not in 2017? Our teacher at Fiitjee Noida claims that there won't be any weightage of boards exam. Enlighten me if you have got any information about this.
    Regards
