Cracking Joint Entrance Examination Main is your gateway to some of the best engineering colleges such as IIITs, NITs and other prestigious institutes of India. These top engineering colleges are the dream destination for engineering aspirants. Now that the JEE Main 2020 is approaching, naturally, it is a big question for all aspirants how to crack the examination. Hence, to provide a deep insight into cracking of JEE Main 2020, this article would reflect on some important information such as smart study techniques, JEE Main exam pattern, syllabus, the best books and some preparation tips for all students.

JEE Main 2020

The exam will be conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) in two sessions next year; one of the sessions will be held in January and the other in April. All students are well aware that the best of the two scores are to be considered during admission for B.Tech or B.Arch. All those students who are planning to appear in the exam in the April session still have ample time to prepare. But all those who wish to appear in the January session have only four months from now to prepare themselves for the greatest opportunity. Hence, the need of the hour for these students is that they should study smart rather than sitting with books all day and the outcome being insignificant. Smart studying does not mean studying some parts of the syllabus and leaving the rest. Rather it means, studying the entire syllabus but with a more systematic manner giving priority to the examination question patters and through effective time management. Students must foremost complete the JEE Main Syllabus before moving towards the revision of entire topics and practicing previous year test papers.

JEE Main Preparation: Strategic Planning

It is advisable to students that they should start preparing for JEE Main 2020 examination along with that of their board exams. Most importantly, students should first chalk out a preparation plan. Often there are questions in their minds like how long to study each day and what topics to cover first, etc. No strategy for preparation will work unless they have clarity on the whole process for the upcoming four months.

Firstly, the JEE Main 2020 syllabus needs to be sorted in such a way that all topics are covered in time and there is enough time for revision because revision is all that matters to revive your memory. While creating a timetable, students should note that they have to cover the entire syllabus and then start attempting some mock tests. Now that the first session exam is knocking at the door, let us assume that most of the syllabus has been successfully covered by all students and only one more month can be spared in studying some more topics. The last three months should be fully dedicated to revision through mock tests and attempting previous year test papers. This will enhance accuracy on soling actual JEE Main 2020 question papers.

JEE Main Preparation Topics

Once students have covered the whole syllabus for JEE Main 2020, they should focus on some important topics that have a higher weight in the exam question paper. This increases their chances of scoring higher marks.
