Balance between JEE Main and Boards

How to Balance Between JEE Main 2020 and Boards?

Are you stressing over appearing for class 12th boards and JEE Main 2020 April session? Here is how to get through. After all, it’s all a cakewalk when you know how!!

The National Testing Agency (NTA) has opened the online application window for the April session of JEE Main 2020. The exam would commence from April 5 soon after the board exams end, continuing till April 11. 

This can be daunting for students who are appearing for both the exams. However, one can strike the right balance with the right planning. 

1. Start with the exam syllabus 

The syllabus for JEE Main is similar to that of class 11th and 12th. Students can stay on top of the game if they are well versed with their board exam syllabus. 

With just a few days left for both the exams, there is no time to cover the entire syllabus. Start with important points and get your fundamentals clear for each topic. This way, you will not have to go through the entire syllabus, thereby saving some time. You can also look out for some important topics or the ones which can make you score high in the exam.

2. Equal importance to both

Owing to the similarity in syllabus, students tend to feel that they should focus more on JEE Main preparation over board exams. However, the truth is that you need to give equal importance to both. 

Board exams are actually your first step towards JEE Main and scoring low in board exams can land you in trouble. Due to lack of preparation or poor preparation strategy, students sometimes tend to underperform in board exams. It may be noted that students need a minimum of 70% marks in boards to be able to sit for JEE Main. 

3. Stay motivated & confident 

In order to enhance your efficiency and strike the right balance between both the exams, it is important to stay confident and make sure that you are super motivated towards your goal. In addition to this, you need to scheme an excellent preparation plan for both the exams. Do remember to add power breaks in between so that you don’t end up getting exhausted. These breaks could be anything from taking a walk, talk to friends or family, or anything that de-stresses your mind. 

4. Practice as much as you can 

Be it the mock test for JEE Main or simple practice sheets for boards, solve as many of these as possible. Taking these tests will give you an idea about the actual question paper in addition to strengthening your time management skills. This will eliminate any unexpected surprises with regards to the exam pattern, syllabus and types of questions.
