If every question in JEE Advanced is difficult and different from what it is in books, how do average students crack it with a lot of practice?

At first I would like to say you that what you mean by different from what it is in books? If you check the previous year’s question paper properly then you can most of the questions are asked from NCERT text books which are ignored by most of the students. If you talk with IIT JEE toppers they will also suggest you to complete the NCERT books properly. If you do not complete the books thoroughly then you will not able to answer the questions.

After that you said every questions are difficult, that’s totally wrong they make only 10% of questions which are difficult but also answerable, just to check the students who have studied properly all the concepts. And the rest 90% huge part are easy and average students can answer it properly.

And lastly any average student can crack the examination and secure a good rank with more practice and clarity of all the concepts. You will take help from iitian mentors they will help you how you can prepare things. You need to study hard and make a proper time table and follow it that is the main point. If you can give proper 7 – 8 hours in a day then you can crack the examination with good marks.

JEE has a well defined syllabus and almost all the standard books available in the market cover the syllabus. Give me 1 example of a question which you did not find in ANY book and I will edit my answer accordingly.

In fact, they lift up questions directly from books.

Which books? The books you ignore - NCERT text books.

Now pick up JEE 2013 paper and sit with NCERT and then compare them side by side. Every concept asked in the paper can be found in NCERT text books. Its all about correct assembly of concepts in a question.

Your question contains the answer. They crack it with a lot of practice indeed!

They solve endless questions so that they develop a directed thinking attitude. An attitude which helps them to analyse the problem and to identify the hidden concept involved.

This attitude is not inherent. This attitude has to be developed.

There is no shortcut.

How to develop it? Read below

In general, a JEE aspirant has 2 years

2 years = 365 x 2 = 730 days

Assuming that you are in no mood of studying for more than 5 hours a day, you have a total of 730 x 5 = 3650 hours

Now you roughly have 90 chapters to be done (30 in each subject)

that leaves 3650 / 90 hours ~ 40 hours per chapter.

Now pick up a chapter at which you are weak and do this:

- Study theory for 10 hours
- Solve easy problems for 5 hours
- Solve medium problems for 10 hours
- Solve hard problems for 15 hours

That completes your 40 hours.

Come back to me and tell me your status.

JEE is a well-known examination in India and most of the students who appear for this exam often find it difficult. However, it is important to understand that the questions in JEE are mostly asked from the NCERT text books, which most students tend to ignore. If you talk to IIT JEE toppers, they would suggest you to complete the NCERT books thoroughly, as it will help you answer most of the questions in the examination. Only 10% of the questions in JEE are difficult, but answerable, to test the students who have studied the concepts properly. The rest 90% of the questions are relatively easy, and an average student can answer them correctly with proper preparation.

An average student can crack the JEE examination and secure a good rank by putting in a lot of practice and having clarity of all the concepts. You can take the help of IITian mentors to guide you in your preparation. It is important to have a proper study plan and a time table, and to stick to it. If you can dedicate 7 to 8 hours a day to studying, you can crack the examination with good marks.

For a JEE aspirant, there are roughly 2 years to prepare, which translates to 730 days, or 3650 hours if you study for 5 hours a day. To prepare effectively, you need to divide these hours between 90 chapters, roughly 40 hours per chapter. To improve your skills in a particular chapter, you can study the theory for 10 hours, solve easy problems for 5 hours, solve medium problems for 10 hours, and solve hard problems for 15 hours. With this approach, you can develop the directed thinking attitude required to succeed in the JEE examination.
