- JEE Advanced Question-Pattern Based Preparation Tips
MCQ with Single Correct Answer:
- Go with the Question- Option- Question method for those questions.
- Read the question, scan through the options and then again go to the question.
- Scanning the question again after keeping the options in mind aids in strategizing the effective method to solve the problem.
- The alternatives themselves can sometimes lead to the correct strategy or even the correct response.
MCQ with Multiple Correct Answers:
Here, first, solve the question and then map the answer with all the possible options. It is also possible that the options contain the same values stated in different ways. Carefully match the answer to all the possible options.
Read the question carefully, even if you are already familiar with the given concept, because sometimes there is a possibility of redefining a term or supplying hypothetical assumptions. In that situation, even your correct strategy may result in the wrong answer.
Matrix Match (One to One):
To solve these questions, start with finding the odd one out. This might assist you in easily locating the correct answer by eliminating the incorrect ones.
Matrix Match (One to Many):
These might be the most trickiest questions. To solve them, candidates are advised to go through the concepts presented in all four rows. Attempt these questions only if you are confident about the answers or else save them for the last.
These questions are a little time-consuming and hence should be solved only if you have a firm grasp of the concept or if you have attempted all of the paper’s other questions. Also, students are recommended to write correct responses to decimal places as requested.
JEE Advanced Exam Strategies
- Get a good night’s sleep before the exam. This is critical in order to focus for the entire 6 hours of the examination.
- Start with easy-to-moderate questions first or with questions you are most confident about. Around 80% of the questions are easy to moderate in difficulty, so start with them.
- Solve the paper in 2-3 rounds, and mark the questions you missed or that need to be reviewed in each round.
- Leave the MCQ with multiple correct answers type questions for the second round. They are actually four questions in one.
- Do not overlook any instructions. Read them very carefully.
- Note down the values and key information provided while reading the question for the first time to solve them quickly.
- Manage your rough work well and also while answering the questions, write clearly.
- Take your practice test paper as seriously as you would the JEE Advanced paper.
- Lastly, stay calm and confident throughout the paper.
