 How to Excel in IIT-JEE AIEEE

1. Stick to fundamentals and then solve Questions Based on Their Applications


2. Stay Focused ,Don’t refer too many books. 

3. Quality is more important than Quantity: Doing 50 quality & concepts based questions is more important than doing 1000 questions which have not been selected carefully. Remember that the purpose is to sharpen problem-solving skills. Start with conventional methods of problem solving but improvise constantly & build you own shortcuts & ways of attacking a problem. While practicing the problem always try to solve the problem on your own. If you are unable to solve a problem do not hurry to consult the solution. Study the relevant theory again, paying attention to the finer points and the problem in the back of mind. 


4. While doing problem solving try to strengthen and develop your conceptual understanding by analyzing deeply and correlating the problem with real life situations.

5. Always keep track of your average score / speed of solving questions.
It has been observed that most of the students loose 20 to 25% of their marks not because they do not know the subject but because they fail to apply the basic concepts correctly. This is basically due to examination fear & pressure.

6. Remember that cut-off in most of the exams moves between 50 to 60%. So if you focus on easy and average question i.e. 60% of the questions, you can easily score Good marks without even going to difficult question. Try to ensure that in the initial 2 hours of the paper the focus should be clearly on easy and average question, after two hours you can decide whether you want to move to difficult questions or revise the ones attempted to ensure a high strike rate. Always keep in mind that normally questions in any competitive exams can be categorized into 3 areas
Easy: Approximately 40% questions in a paper are easy
Average: Approximately 40% questions in a paper are average
Difficult: Approximately 20% questions in a paper are difficult
