Ranchi, Jan 13: The JEE Main 2023 notification has been announced by The National Testing Agency (NTA) for admission to Undergraduate Programmes in NITs, IIITs and other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs), etc. in the next academic year (2023-2024). The JEE Main 2023 will be held in two sessions, namely session 1 – January, 2023 and session 2 – April, 2023.
Here’s what Vijay Verma, a former teacher at several top coaching institutions including Fitjee and Champs Square along with Poonam Sinha, a former teacher from a CBSE school in Ranchi said.
“The candidate’s performance in the best of the two sessions shall be considered when preparing the final merit list for JEE Main. The top 2.5 lakh students through JEE Main from all categories would qualify to appear in JEE Advanced 2023,” said Sinha.
Talking about utilising time, former FITJEE coach Vijay Verma said, “It is advisable to prepare simultaneously for Boards, JEE Main & JEE Advanced and utilise the gaps between the exams effectively.”
IN JANUARY 2023:
The focus must be more towards JEE Main & NCERT Textbooks. Take adequate number of Mock Tests to improve the exam temperament along with regular Test Analysis to know your weaker areas. In Physics & Chemistry, get a good grip of chapters of NCERT as most fact-based questions are asked directly from NCERT, Verma said.
Aspirants who are taking the Board exams would find this method useful, while Repeaters should take the January session to check their preparedness. It is advisable to appear in both sessions of JEE Main as the best of the two sessions would be considered, he added.
IN FEBRUARY & MARCH 2023:
“Students who are focusing on JEE Advanced must utilize this time from till the actual date of the exam for JEE Advanced along with JEE Main and Class 12 Board Exam 2023 preparation,” said Vijay sir.
He further added, “They should continue their preparation with a full proof timetable devoting equal time slots for each subject. Those who have planned to take both Sessions of JEE Main may take mock tests periodically to fine tune their preparation for the same. Students taking Class 12th boards may additionally utilise the gaps between the board exams for mock tests.”
Test Analysis after every mock test will be the key to improving oneself before the actual exam. Repeaters are advised to remain focussed on JEE Advanced during this time.
FROM APRIL 2023 TILL JEE ADVANCED EXAM:
The time after the JEE Main (April) Session could be devoted only to JEE Advanced by taking Mock Tests followed by rigorous test analysis. Students are advised to revise from the notes made while preparing and stay connected with their respective subject teachers. Joining a Test Series with Concept Strengthening Sessions may be a good idea, said Verma.
