February 2009 Study Plan - IIT JEE 2010

Concentrate on board examination revision. Plan to do board examinations exceptionally well. That will give you confidence to prepare well for JEE. Study well and plan to remember things for a long time. You are not studying just for a day of examination. You are studying to remember it for one more year. You have to keep on reminding yourself that point.

It will be good to spare half an hour every day to remember things studied any where from one year back till yesterday randomly. Such an exercise might improve the capability of brain to recollect things in the examination hall suddenly when you have to answer a question.

By April End you must complete study of full XI portion for JEE examination. You must have solved all the problems in H C Verma, R D Sharma and Chemistry Book. Any shortfalls, take up the subjects immediately after school examinations and finish all the problems by April end.

Take up study of XII class portion from May 2009. Wiil give you 8 months to complete the XII portion and related JEE portion. From January 2010 you should be in revision mode for board examination and JEE examination.

Revision for the Board Examinations - From last week of January

Today (24 Jan 2009) Mint paper carried an article titled Tricks from Tutors.
You may find it on

Some suggestions

If you are academically bright student, the next couple of weeks is the time for you to concentrate on concepts that you have not revised earlier. Don't waste time revisiting waht you alread know.

Weaker students have to revise what they know and perfect that.

If you have to appear for competitive examinations, devote 20% of time to prepare for these examinations until mid-February.

5 R's for success: Reorganize, Revise, Rest, Relax and Reassure

Reorganize: Collect and organize you study material for each retrieval.

Connect the course content to everyday ideas to have a greater recall. Try acronyms, mnemonics, rhymes that associate with the concepts.

I personally advocate somebody in the family asking some questions everyday. When you are not able to answer, revise the topic and natural association between that event and the topic will be there.

First understand and then memorize. If you memorize without understanding, examination anxiety may prevent you from recollecting it.

Practice writing answers and attempt some mock tests. It will tell you how much time you are taking to write answers.

Have a timetable for a day, but be flexible around it. Don't get stressed. You may stretch on a day or slightly relax on another day. Stay refreshed and start everyday with enthusiasm.
