TIME MANAGEMENT FOR IITJEE .
How to Manage Time in JEE Preparation..
A very crucial issue facing JEE aspirants like you is the problem of time management. We’ve heard all sorts of remarks and queries from students claiming that lack of time management is becoming their nemesis:
"How many hours should I study everyday?"
"I cannot handle JEE preparation along with my Boards preparation"
"I feel very sleepy while studying!"
"How did you manage your studies during your preparation time?"
"I am very distracted with things like my iPod and spending time on Facebook."
"Should I spend time on things other than studies? Like sports or cultural activities?"
We are sure you can identify with some of these issues.
So what is that secret to great time management? What is that magic potion that will do away with every distraction that hinders your progress? How can you ensure the most effective management of your efforts?
The truth is that there’s no single formula or methodology applicable to everyone for effective time management. Each individual is unique. Therefore, everyone cannot be fit into a single success formula of exam .
You must figure out your own schedule that optimizes your time spent on studies while still giving you ample time to have fun. We would strongly discourage you from abandoning all extra-curricular activities and "focusing" only on studies. This is what you must have been advised to do by peers and elders. This strategy does not always work. What we would suggest is a balanced mix of studies as well as other things that you like doing, like playing soccer or listening to music, or spending time on the internet.
Here are some general pointers that you could use to draw up your own time-table:
— Studies should be your first priority, but not the only thing that you do. You must fit in other interesting activities in you schedule, things that you like doing.
— Figure out the time of the day that best suits you for studying. For some, it is early morning while for many others, it is late nights. Once you’ve determined when is the best time for you to study, construct your study schedule around that time of the day.
— There is no particular number of hours that you must put in everyday for studying. But one very important thing is to be regular and consistently follow your daily time-table. Also, make sure that you revise and practice regularly. For example, suppose that you are able to put in 4 hours of study everyday. You could possibly use 2 of those 4 hours for advancing along your (unfinished) syllabus and the other 2 for revising parts of what you’ve already covered up to that particular day.
— You must follow a balanced schedule with respect to all the three subjects. Studying only physics for days at a stretch, for example, is not a very good idea (although it might be fun; we did it ourselves too, but of course there are negative consequences). We would suggest touching upon at least two subjects everyday, and never neglecting any particular subject (its chemistry most of the times!) for more than 2-3 days. This way, you’ll be in touch with all the three subjects at any given point in time. Remember, if your aim is to maximize your rank JEE 2012, you must go in with your arsenal fully loaded, which means being very good in all the three subjects.
— Finally, if you are ever getting bored of studying, there’s no point continuing. Take a break for a while and then try to start afresh. But this does not mean studying for 5 minutes and taking a break of 55 minutes every hour!
