India is home to some of the best engineering colleges in the world. The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), the National Institutes of Technology (NITs), and the Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) are known throughout the world.
There are 23 IITs, 32 NITs, and 23 IIITs in India. In order to get into one of the NITs or IIITs, you have to crack JEE Main. To get into one of the IITs, which are the top engineering colleges in the country, you need to crack both JEE Main and JEE Advanced, JEE Main being the qualifying exam for JEE Advanced.
JEE Main is, thus, the most popular and important engineering entrance exam in India among engineering aspirants. It is a highly competitive exam with 12-15 lakh students appearing for it every year.
If you want to crack this exam, you must start your preparation keeping in mind that the syllabus is huge and you need to make your study plan accordingly. The JEE Main syllabus can be broken down into 12,000 concepts. Of course, all these concepts do not have equal weightage and some concepts and chapters are more important than others. Nonetheless, you need to clear the basics first and then only, you can concentrate on important topics and chapters. JEE Main study materials can help you to clear your basics.
Regular practice plays a vital role in your preparation and you must solve JEE Main practice papers every time you finish a chapter. You must mark those concepts, topics, and questions which you found difficult so that you can revise them later. Regular revision is important even if you have mastered a particular topic or concept. On Embibe, you can “Bookmark” a question to revise later. There are also Hints for every question which will help you to learn various tricks and short cuts to solve problems.
Solving JEE Main previous years’ question papers can also be helpful as it gives insight into the difficulty level of the exam and prepares you to face it. You must have access to at least the JEE question papers with solutions.
JEE Main mock tests on Embibe are of the same difficulty level as that of the actual exam. It also gives detailed feedback on how you spent time and what concepts you are weak at. This helps in improving your test taking strategy and time management skills.
