JEE Main Revision Strategy by Experts

“More than 50% syllabus of JEE Mains is same as the CBSE Class 12 board examination syllabus. Therefore, while revising the syllabus for Class 12 board examination, candidates should revise it to the fullest at JEE level to perform well in both exams. As the board exams are postponed now, candidates can revise Class 11 syllabus for JEE Main and again focus on board exam revision fully from May end or when the dates of board exam are announced,” Saurabh Kumar, National Academic Director, Vidyamandir Classes.

“Board exam shall start at least by the third week of June. So, candidates have more than six weeks in hand. They should use three to four hours for revising Class 11 syllabus for JEE Main and use the remaining time for revising Class 12 syllabus. This will help them do well in the board exams as well as NTA JEE Main 2021. Once the exact dates of board exams are announced, focus only on Class 12 at least 15 days prior to the exam. Use one hour per day for English and the fifth subject,” Brij Mohan, Co-Founder, Vidyamandir Classes.
