He solved previous year question papers to brush up his preparation. He prepared to take the idea from previous year paper’s that what could be asked and what he needs to study. Dhruv kept preparing for the board exam and JEE Mains simultaneously as both were very similar. There is no significant difference in preparation of Board exam and JEE Mains; the only difference is one is objective based, and board exams are subjective.
Dhruv studied at Catalyser for the JEE Main preparation. According to Dhruv, there is a benefit in taking coaching as it helps the students to get proper guidance in studies. This guidance by the teachers helps in making a proper and focused study plan. The topper shared his experience that rather than preparing for mock test and sample papers, it is must to solve previous year paper’s.
He further added NCERT books are a must and sufficient for the JEE Main exam preparation. If NCERT Books are studied thoroughly, then no one can stop you from cracking the JEE Main exam. Dhruv will also appear for JEE Main 2019 exam which will be held in April session.
Chetan Reddy is also among those 15 students who have secured 100 percentile in JEE Main 2019 January session conducted by NTA. The topper aims to study in IIT Bombay and study Computer Science Engineering or Electronics Engineering. The preparation strategy that Chetan shared is that he started preparing for JEE Main since the eighth standard. He also did a foundation course which continued till class 10th. Afterwards, he enrolled himself in Sri Chaitanya for intensive integrated coaching keeping JEE Main as the target exam.
He added, the strategy to be thoroughly prepared for the exam, he finished his coaching and entire syllabus by August 2018. After that, he did only revision and practice which helped him to be quick and precise. This helped him in clearing concepts, and daily practice made him ready for the exam.
The primary strategy that Chetan shared is to complete the syllabus by August so the focus can be on revision and many practice sessions. He also shared that there is no difference in Board exam preparation and JEE Main exam preparation. The only difference is that one is objective whereas another one is subjective. Chetan emphasised on coaching from class 8th onwards as it helps in understanding and gaining grip over the basic concepts.
He recommends the Sri Chaitanya Institute for the preparation as the teachers there take extra care of students while studying and helps to clear concepts from scratch. He also added that coaching is beneficial as it helps to gain focus on what and how to study? According to him, mock tests are beneficial as they help the student in having good time management. One significant advantage that the student can get with the mock test is that it is conducted online. Thus, it helps the candidate to get familiar with the examination mode. He followed the coaching material provided at the coaching centre. After a thorough study of study material provided by the institute, there is no need to refer any other books. Last but not least, the topper added, hard work and dedication are the keys to success.
