IIT JEE revision strategy.

Revision is a key part of IIT JEE preparation. It’s not just after finishing the syllabus or before the exam, revision is a continuous process in the JEE preparation. It must happen daily in some form or other. To crack JEE with a good rank, a good revision strategy is required. Read these tips if you are looking for JEE revision tips in the last few days before the exam.

IIT JEE Revision Strategy

Here are the best ways to revise in JEE preparation :

  1. Start revising early. Include a specific revision slot in your JEE preparation schedule. Don’t procrastinate the revision time for new study.
  2. Make notes and revise from them regularly. You can also prepare a handbook or short notes for JEE that you can revise before the exam.
  3. Don’t spend too much time making your notes pretty. For diagrams, include all the details you need to learn but don’t try to produce a work of art.
  4. Use Mnemonics to remember difficult words, phrases and statements. Memory Needs Every Method Of Nurturing Its Capacity” is a mnemonic for spelling ‘mnemonic.’
  5. Make flow charts, diagrams, tables, posters, post-its, etc. and stick them wherever possible and have a glance at them repeatedly.
  6. Use flashcards to learn & revise topics and concepts. Flashcards allow you to study anywhere, in class, school, bus, etc. This helps in building your knowledge, generates interest, and above all utilises your non-productive time.
  7. Quiz yourself. Ask yourself questions about the topic when you finish it.
  8. Read things out loud in different accents or voices. Then when you are trying to recall the facts, you’ll remember the accent and then hopefully the fact too.
  9. Are you an early bird or a night owl? Revise when you are most alert.
  10. Discuss topics after having revised them, with your classmates.
  11. Revising theory is not enough, you also need to solve problems to revise effectively.
  12. Solve mock tests to evaluate your preparation. Analyse your mistakes in the test and do complete revision before the next test.
  13. Use different learning and revision styles. Just as everyone learns differently, everyone also revises differently. Try a lot of different techniques and see what works for you.

Tips to revise for JEE Main in the last few days before the exam :

When to Start JEE Full Syllabus Revision?

Once you know the examination date of JEE, aim to start revising the JEE full syllabus at least a month before the exam. Plan your revision timetable for JEE. The best way is to revise in short blocks like 40-60 minutes and then have small breaks to rest your mind.

Don’t panic in the last few days before the JEE exam, eat and sleep well. On the examination day, do not worry, even if you feel that you remember nothing! Give it your best shot, you will be able to recall once the questions are in front of you.
