Study hours for IIT JEE

Cracking the JEE exam requires a significant amount of dedication, effort, and consistent study. The number of study hours required to prepare for the IIT JEE can vary depending on several factors, including your existing knowledge, aptitude, study techniques, and the time remaining before the exam.

How Many Hours of Study is Required to Crack IIT JEE?

If you are able to study for 4-6 hours with full concentration (excluding the time you spent at coaching), you can crack IIT JEE. 6-8 hours of study can get you a good rank in JEE and just in case you are the one who can study for 8–10 hours in addition to coaching time, you are certainly talking within top 50–100 rank in JEE.

Your IQ decides study hours for JEE

The time you need to study for JEE will differ depending upon your IQ. A 6 hour study might do wonders for an above average student but might be just enough to clear JEE for an average student.

Focus on quality study hours. That is what matters the most. Study hours depend on your caliber. It may happen that your friends complete the same work in half the time taken by you. Don’t worry about that. Just keep going and don’t leave any stone unturned.

When not to study for JEE?

You should never ‘measure’ the number of hours you study for IIT JEE. What matters more is that you should study with full concentration whenever you study. Or in other words you should know when NOT to study for JEE.

  • Never study when you are feeling asleep. I personally hate studying at night, especially late night. A JEE aspirant should ensure that he/ she is taking a proper sleep of at-least 7–8 hours.
  • Never study while you are watching TV. Earlier I had the habit of studying in front of TV. Believe me it is useless.
  • Don’t study when you are thinking about your favourite hobby/ sport/ activity. Either you are capable of putting aside your hobbies or you are NOT. If it is a NO, then allot some time in a week to your hobbies.
  • Study only when your mind is ready to do so. Never kill your inner voice.
