Is it advisable to drop a year for JEE?
Taking a drop or not, the decision is up to you.
If you are a beginner and want proper guidance then you can enrol
yourself in a IIT JEE mentorship program in which you will be
connected to recent JEE toppers who will personally guide you and
will be your personal mentors throughout your JEE preparation.

of the competitors, get the best resources and learn essential things
like time management and consistency

I have seen many students doing way better in their repeating year
than in their first attempt. And witnessed even a few who could not

don’t know why ) and then got a rank of 5300.
So it is all up to you. Winning or losing is upto us. We choose what
we want to become. Be sure what you want to do and then take a
decision. The decision should be completely yours and shouldn’t be
imposed on you by someone else .
