Question asked by an IIT-JEE aspirant – “What are the chances for an average student to clear IIT in the first attempt?”

Can an Average Student Crack IIT-JEE?

First of all who told you that you are an average guy or is it your own perception about yourself?

Look, clearing IIT (i.e. JEE Advanced ) is not an easy task and it can’t be measured on any scale of brain power. It is something that requires a lot of determination, dedication, theoretical in-depth knowledge, your keen interest in topics/subjects and learning in a smart and efficient way.

It is not your school’s era where the same question that is in the book, gets memorize by a student, comes into exam and whom you called above average or topper. Here things goes unexpectedly unpredictable most of the times and the reality checkup of intelligence begins from here. Notice to my words, “All the people in this world have equal mindset”. Only you have to define and inculcate your abilities or capabilities in a proper direction, comprising with all the aspects as I mentioned above. The rest is going to be good with your effortless job if you do it at the right time.

About your chances for clearing IIT-JEE, you have to follow all these guidelines :

  1. First of all stop assuming yourself below anyone.
  2. Make all your efforts for JEE in a continuous manner without any long break and including all the aspects which I mentioned already.
  3. Avoid all distractions or just stop involving in them from right now.

The myth of telling myself as an average guy

JEE is really a very tough competition. Look at my own journey of cracking IIT-JEE, Firstly I also thought myself to be an average guy and just hoped to get into any good NIT. For me, at that time IIT was just like a dream, literally. After giving my first attempt I even didn’t get into a “good NIT” but just got an NIT. I was not at all satisfied and went for drop year.

During my dropper period I realized my real potential and efficiency, what I was and what I am. The myth of telling myself as an average guy and hiding my own potential screwed up my one year. After that, not surprisingly, but with my full efforts I cracked the JEE Advanced with such a good marks for getting the milestone i.e. “IIT”.
