Do's and Don'ts For Joint Entrance Examination - JEE

Disclaimer: Though I have got a good rank of 96, my beginning (from X) was pretty ordinary - so I expect this guide to help the majority of students. Also, since I'm not a qualified instructor, I can only give my personal point of view.

1] Regular homework and studies. I mean, really regular, as in never-failed-to-complete-my-homework-on-time type regular.

2] Relaxation and timepass. Yeah. Really. All study and no play makes Jack a nut-case. But don't overdo it - 1 hour at the maximum per day.

3] Isolation. The more friends you have, the more possibility of you getting distracted. Keep a safe distance, avoid most parties and hangouts. The lesser, the better.

4] Taking tests. Join a test series, maybe two, or as many you want - I recommend FIITJEE. Constant tests help you practice and prepare your mind for the JEE pattern. If the tests are to be given at home, do them at the proper time in an isolated room.

5] Finish your syllabus by January, if you are a fresher. If you are dropping, do make sure you complete the syllabus.

6] Keep a positive attitude. Approach new topics with interest, not with an another-topic-to-mug attitude. Do some research on Wikipedia, try to find applications in day-to-day life. This will help create interest in the topic and improve your understanding as an engineer.

7] Mental and physical exercises, like meditation and yoga. For further details, contact spideyunlimited.

AND FINALLY, THE MOST IMPORTANT:

8] Attend all lectures, as in perfect 100% attendance. Quite a no-brainer, this one.

Don'ts

1] Overstress - the deadliest killer is sighted often among JEE students.

2] Procrastinate. As in, put off tomorrow what you can do today.

3] Hang out and waste time.

4] Worry too much. This is a major problem I've seen. People worry so much about classes / test series/ correspondence / teachers / batches / quality / notes / books / college / friend / girlfriend / food / hostel / accommodation... you get the point... If I were to say it bluntly - just shut up, open the book, and start doing the damn problems!!

5] Lose confidence, or be over confident. IF you lose confidence, go to the forums, we can help you. If you are over confident, just contact me Just joking, Remember that there may be (will be) students out there smarter than you. This applies even if you are the topper of any institute.

6] Sleep less / eat less. The body is like any machine, and needs proper rest. Regular sleep of at least 7 hours is a must.
