The Chemistry syllabus of JEE Main is vast, and the aspirants must note that the preparation for JEE Main Chemistry takes a lot of time. You can prioritize the syllabus as per your convenience. It is always better to start the exam preparation with the toughest subject or the subject, which you are not very proficient.

The below table will help you understand the number of days each subject takes for JEE Main exam preparation –

Problem Faced by Aspirants while Preparing for JEE Main Exam

The major challenge that JEE Main aspirants face while preparing for the exam is balancing the time between Class 12th board exams preparation and JEE Main exam preparation. In order to help such candidates, we have prepared a timetable so that JEE Main aspirants can balance the time for regular academics and JEE Main exam preparation. One more thing that the aspirants must understand is that there are major similarities between Class 12th and JEE Main syllabus, and preparing for the exam is not at all a difficult task. However, a good strategy has to be followed to achieve a better score in the JEE Main exam.

You can either go in sequential order or pick up units randomly from any of the three subjects. However, you will have to spend at least two days for each unit to have an in-depth knowledge of the topic. Here are some examples of how you can plan your weekly preparation strategy for JEE Main.

JEE Main Coaching vs Study Study

When students decide to go for higher studies in technical and professional courses like engineering and medical or prepare for administrative exams like UPSC, parents, as well as students, fall under the trap of confusion that they should opt for a coaching centre or do self-study, we will talk about the pros and cons about both types so that the students can have a detailed overview and chose his/her option of preference wisely and judicially.

For students, it is normal to get inclined for coaching institutes and the student may feel like they need some extra support for cracking the examinations. This is justified as the JEE Exams are known as one of the toughest entrance examinations in the world. However, there are people who, on their own efforts have not only cracked JEE Mains but also cracked JEE Advanced examination.

There is nothing wrong or ethically incorrect choosing between any two of the study methods, this is a question of comfort and efficiency of study a student can have. Some student may prefer coaching institutes and some may prefer studying at home.

Studying at home also has its own benefits as it has now become easier to get assistance from the internet and web-learning websites who come to pretty good help and saves a lot of money.

In metro cities, it has been seen that the people crack JEE have a large number of people who do self-study. From the chart mentioned below, it becomes clear that even both has some distinguished pros and cons, both aim towards the same thing,

Zone/RegionSelf StudyCoaching
All India52%48%
Kanpur54.80%45.20%
Guwahati61.40%38.60%
Bombay52.60%47.40%
Roorkee55.10%44.90%
Madras39.40%60.60%
Delhi47.10%52.90%

Following is some of the advantages and disadvantages of both methods to help a student have a clear idea about the two.

Advantages (Pros) of JEE Main Coaching

For subjects that demand high technicalities like physics and mathematics, going to coaching is a very good idea. Following are some points which will tell you the advantages of coaching centres for JEE Main studies.

Direction

Coaching centres can help one to understand the focus of studies required to crack the JEE Examinations. Coaching centres generally have experience coaching students for the examination and they have a clear idea of all the formats with the nitty-gritty of the examination. It can guide the focus of the student in his/her studies and elaborate on the focus portions of the examination.

Competitive Environment

Going to the coaching centres give you exposure to some of your peers who are also studying with the same aim. In coaching centres, students get exposure to other people and learn about their strength and weakness and thus the candidate can reflect on their own strength and weaknesses in particular subjects. Coaching centres open a door for peer learning. Students get a free environment to hold discussions on the subjects with their peers.

Access to Teachers

For timely solutions to doubts and confusions regarding a subject, the coaching centres help a lot which is an issue in the self-study method. The presence of teachers makes it easier for the students to quickly clear a doubt which is a timely research process for a self-studying student.

Disadvantages (Cons) of JEE Main Coaching

There are some factors which make up a set of cons or disadvantages for JEE Studies in Coaching centres. Due to the disadvantages, many people prefer self-studying even though coaching centres have their own benefits. Following are the cons of studying for JEE Mains in a coaching centre,

False Assurance

In coaching centres, students are showered with the false assurance that they will clear the examination at ease because certain institute trains him/her and they show their success stories covering up the failures. The students who understand that they are false assurances know that true success can only come with one’s own merit and hard work. Coaching centres are just there to guide.

Pace of Learning

As the coaching centres run with a lot of students, they go with a ‘One size fits all’ strategy. They conduct their studies in a very rapid manner and it is true that not many students can cope up with the flow, coaching centres show a very little effort to give an extra push to students who are lagging behind.

Expensive

For people belonging to the lower-middle-class and economically weak categories, affording coaching centres is a dream for them as they can be pretty expensive. One coaching class can charge up to 1 lakh rupees per month for JEE examination coaching.

Extensive Pressure on Students

Coaching centres are infamous for burdening their students with an extra burden for which, many students suffer from depression and cannot enjoy their young flavours of life. For example, Kota, Rajasthan is known as the hub of JEE coaching centres but on the other hand, the statistics have shown that 15 students suicides have taken place alone in 2018. The pressure of studies become so high on them adding the pressure form families that the students chose the unwanted path.

Still, students who have a good merit level and hardworking skills and want to be a competitive environment can opt for caching centres as good coaching centres guides the students if they dream to obtain a good rank in JEE Mains. However, students should understand that they have to have a clear idea of their family’s financial conditions before pressurising parents for admission in coaching centres for JEE Mains.

Is Self Study a Better Option for JEE Main?

The statistics show that among the people who crack JEE Mains mainly prefer self-studying and it has all the valid reasons. Self-studying is a very beneficial method as it gives a student enough scope for reflecting on self and assess his/her own problems and take steps accordingly. People generally study in high flexibility in Self Study mode for JEE Mains. Some distinguishable benefits of Self Study in JEE Mains are as follows,

Self Authority

The feature of Self authority builds with a sense of realisation that you are your own master when you opt for self-studies. A candidate is free to follow and study at his/her own will and make their routines according to their convenience and also bring a change in study pattern if the candidate feels that he/she would be more benefited. The candidates have authority on their own studying style which is a good thing for the people who are independent-minded. In this method, students do not have to depend on any external involvement for studies

No Pressure from Peers

Not all people can perform well under pressure. The self-study methods reliefs one with the pressure of peers which in coaching centres a candidate gets directly or indirectly. In coaching centres, a candidate can be tensed if he/she feels that his/her peers are performing well than him/her. This adds up an extra burden of pressure on the students and students become likely to lose focus on studies. With the power of self-assessment which Self-study method grants the student, students can remain free from any kind of pressure where the student only competes with self and pushes his/her own limits. This is a fun and efficient way to study according to experts.

Time Management

As mentioned before, self-study allows a student to manage his/her own time. Where the coaching centres follow a rigid schedule and format, many students find it hard to cope up with the pace an institute is conducting studies. As mentioned above, students end up losing their valuable time of young age in coaching institutes but in self-study method, a student according to his/her will can make time for any kind of extracurricular activities, following hobbies and more.

Disadvantages (Cons) of Self Study for JEE Mains

Every method is made with some cons as well as pros, similarly, the self-study method for JEE Mains also has a set of disadvantages. However, the disadvantages that come with self-studying methods are easily addressable in Self-study methods.

Doubt Clearing

Doubt clearing in the self-study methods consumes a lot of time. Where coaching centres can do it straight away, students studying in self mode have to rely on textual and online resources. It is indeed true that there is nothing that cannot be found online, but that too takes minimum time for research depending on the complexity the topic has.

No Competition

Self-competition is not everyone’s cup of tea but it can come to huge benefit if one expertise it. Many people perform better in competition than independent works. For those kinds of people, self-study cannot be considered as a reliable method. An environment with no competition can be too laidback for some students to actually invest some time in studying.

From the detailed description of the pros and cons of both coaching centres and self-study, the student can now get an idea for choosing what will be better for him/her. This will be wrong to quote that one is better than the other one, this is totally applicable as per the individual preference of the student.

The student, depending on his ability can choose any one of the above methods of study for JEE Mains examinations. We, at CollegeDekho, wish you best of luck irrespective of whichever path you choose to follow.

General Tips & Tricks to Crack JEE Main 2020

The following plans can help you in the preparation of JEE Main 2020:

  • Candidates should give equal importance to all subjects, prepare a timetable and follow it religiously.
  • Taking a break of at least 5 to 10 minutes after every one or two hours of regular study is essential. When you take a break, stay completely relaxed. Overnight studies are not recommended and you should sleep for at least 5 to 6 hours at night.
  • At present, there are many preparation books available in the market for JEE Main but candidates must choose wisely the books for their preparation. It is advisable to avoid the study material, which has repetitive questions on the basis of the same concept.
  • Apart from practice books available in the market, candidates should not ignore NCERT books as they are enough to solve at least the conceptual problems in the entrance examination. NCERT books of Physics and Chemistry will give you the essential basic concepts.
  • Candidates should focus on resolving problems on their own. They should not seek solutions without trying the questions. They should start with conventional ways of solving, while gradually improving. In short, candidates should be able to create their own shortcuts and ways to solve the problem.
  • In addition to the books, candidates should pay attention to JEE Main’s last year’s question paper. This will help them manage their time in the examination. By solving these papers, candidates will get an idea of examination pattern, the total number of questions, time duration and weightage of questions.
  • JEE Main exam is not difficult, but tricky. Due to the lack of planning on how to write the exam, many candidates fail to score in JEE Main. Once all the subjects are covered, candidates should target doing at least one mock examination per week.
  • Speed and accuracy are important aspects, they will come with the comprehensive practice of mock papers. On the day of the exam, candidates should spend the first 15 minutes of the examination on reading the instructions of the question paper.
  • Candidates should not ignore their health while preparing for the exam. They should do some meditation and yoga, it will help them develop inner strength, peace, confidence, and concentration power.
  • Candidates preparing for the exam should not stress themselves. It is necessary to sleep for 5 to 6 hours each night, especially 3 to 4 days before the exam. Aspirants may take short naps as they help maintain freshness, but they must avoid oversleeping during the day.

Tie Breaking Policy for JEE Main Paper I

If two or more candidates score the same marks in JEE Main Paper I exam, the order of merit will be determined as per the following tie-breaking rules. In order to make the candidates have a detailed understanding of tie-breaking policy, we have explained the same with some examples.

Tie Breaker A: Candidates scoring higher marks in Mathematics will be given priority in the merit list as per tie-breaker policy – 1.

Example:

Let us assume that Candidate X and Candidate Y have scored 280 out of 300 in JEE Main Paper I. However, Candidate X scored 80 marks in Mathematics, while Candidate B scored 82 in Mathematics. Here, Candidate B will be given priority in the merit list as per the Tie Breaker Policy 1.

Tie Breaker B: This policy comes into effect only if two or more candidates score the same marks in Mathematics. Since two or more candidates have similar marks in Mathematics, the marks scored by candidates in Physics will be taken into consideration to determine the merit.

Example:

Let us assume that Candidate X and Candidate Y have scored 280 out of 300 in JEE Main Paper I. Both of them have also scored 80 marks in Mathematics. However, Candidate X scored 85 in Physics and Candidate Y scored 82 in Physics. As per the tie-breaker policy 2, Candidate X will be given higher preference in the merit list than Candidate Y.

Tie Breaker C: This policy comes into effect only if two or more candidates score similar marks in Physics. In such cases, marks scored by candidates in Chemistry will be taken into consideration to determine the merit.

Example:

Let us assume that Candidate X and Candidate Y have scored 280 out of 300 marks in JEE Main Paper I. On the other hand, both these candidates scored same marks in Mathematics and Physics section of the exam. However, Candidate X scored 80 marks in Chemistry and Candidate Y scored 81 marks. As per tie-breaker policy 3, Candidate Y will be given higher preference in merit list than Candidate X.

Tie Breaker D: This policy comes into effect only if two or more candidates score same marks in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry sections of JEE Maine Paper I. In such cases, the candidate with less number of negative responses in the exam will be given higher preference in the order of merit.

Example:

Let us assume that Candidate X and Candidate Y have scored 250 marks in JEE Main Paper I. On the other hand, both these candidates scores same marks in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. However, the number of wrong answers by Candidate X is 16, while the number of wrong answers by Candidate Y is 18. In order to determine the merit, Candidate X will be given higher preference in the order of merit, as the number of wrong answers by Candidate X is less than Candidate Y.

Tie Breaker E: This policy comes into effect only if a tie still persists after applying all the above rules. In such cases, candidates older in age will be given higher preference in the merit list. Check the example below for a better understanding.

Example:

Let us assume that Candidate X and Candidate Y scored 240 marks in JEE Main Paper I. On the other hand, these candidates scored same marks in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. At the same time, the number of incorrect answers by these candidates is also the same. However, Candidate X is 17 years and 6 months old and Candidate Y is 17 years and 8 months old. As per tie-breaker policy 5, Candidate Y will be given higher preference in the merit list.

Mathematics seemed relatively tougher than last year. Most of the questions were lengthy, thus, increasing the chances of making mistakes. This section had18 questions from the 12th class syllabus and 12 from the 11th class syllabus. There were 3 questions of Probability which was quite high.

Physics, on the other hand, turned out to be relatively simpler in comparison with last year. While 17 questions were from the 12th class syllabus, 13 questions were from the 11th class syllabus. Majority of the questions asked in Physics paper were from topics generally covered for the JEE preparation. Topics like Mechanical Waves and Sound and Uniform Circular Motion, which are considered quite important, were completely missing. Some questions required calculations but they were easy.

Of all the three subjects, Chemistry was the simplest. From class XII syllabus, 18 questions were asked and 12 questions were asked from class XI syllabus. The paper covered all the topics and looked more balanced as compared to other subjects. The paper was more conceptual as compared to previous year’s exam.

According to experts, a student should have done Physics and Chemistry quickly and used the saved time for Mathematics in order to score well in the paper.

JEE Main 2020 Inter–Se Merit List

NTA will release the JEE Main 2020 result determining the marks of the candidates scored in the examination. They will also have to look after the candidates scoring same marks in JEE Main 2020. This is identified when the rank list of the passed candidates is prepared. The list for Paper 1 (B.Tech and B.E) and Paper 2 (B.Arch and B.Planning) will be prepared separately and then if the score of two or more candidates is same, an inter-se merit list will be determined based on parameters defined by the exam conducting authority. Candidates must also know that these parameters will be different for both Paper 1 and Paper 2 of JEE Main 2020. Let’s check out the inter-se merit list factors planned out for the candidates with the same score in JEE Main 2020.

Paper 1 (B.Tech and B.E)

  • The first parameter will be the marks scored in the Mathematics section of the paper. Candidate with a higher score in Mathematics will be ranked up in the list.

  • If there is a tie again, then, the marks of the Physics section will be considered as a tiebreaker. Higher the marks in Physics, higher will be the rank of the candidate.

  • In case if the candidates manage to match up all the marks, then the board will then consider the number of positive and negative marks obtained by the candidates. The one with the higher positive marks or absolute value will rank up then the other with less number of positive marks.

  • If this parameter also fails, then both the candidates will be awarded the same rank in the inter-se merit list.

Paper 2 (B.Arch and B.Planning)

  • First consideration will be the marks scored by the comparing candidates in the Aptitude Section of Paper 2. Test taker scoring higher marks in Aptitude section will be marked up in the inter-se merit list.

  • If this determinant fails to clarify the tie, then the marks of the Drawing section will be considered and the one scoring more in this section will be ranked up in the list.

  • The ratio of the positive and negative marks will be the third consideration in case the top two factors fall to be the same. The one with higher absolute value will be ranked up in the inter-se merit list.

  • If all of the above parameters are same, then both the candidates will be given equal rank on the list.

Post JEE Main 2020 Result Declaration

After the JEE Main 2020 result declaration, National Testing Agency (NTA) will release the cut-off list for the candidates who have cleared the examination. The JEE Main 2020 cut-off has however been released on the official site of JEE Main. This list will help candidates to identify their position in the exam conducted.

Faculty at the Institute: To provide the necessary guidance to the students, a team of prestigious, full-time and qualified faculty is necessary. Candidates should also try to find out the ratio between the full-time faculty and the visiting faculty.

Placement Cell: Before deciding on college, candidates should go through the company’s profile, placement record details, recruitment areas, average salary and more. Candidates can also check for the highest package offered by the companies and the parameters the companies consider for offering the highest packages.

Structure of Fee: It is an important factor that must be kept in mind while selecting an institute/college. Candidates can compare top-rated institutes/colleges in terms of their fee structure and then choose one as per their needs.

Float: Float option gives immense flexibility to the participants of JoSAA counselling process. Candidates who wish to accept the current allotment and wait for the admission in institute or academic programme as per their higher preference can choose float option. These candidates are eligible to participate in the subsequent rounds of the counselling process. If the candidate does not get a seat as per his higher order of preference, he/she can accept the existing allotment and can confirm the seat. The float option is applicable only to those students who are not offered admission as per their first choice in the counselling process.

Slide: Slide option is applicable for students who are looking for a better allotment in the same institute in which he/she has been allocated the seat. These candidates will be considered for the subsequent rounds of JoSAA seat allocation process.
