JEE Main 2018: What To Do On The Last Day Of Preparation?

By Sashikanth Sai

The long wait will end soon for the engineering aspirants with the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main examination happening on Apr 8, 2018. As we know that the JEE is the gateway for admission to the top engineering colleges and institutes spread across the country, one should put in their best effort to crack the examination.

The JEE is conducted in two phases, namely, JEE Main and JEE Advanced. We hope that the students are aware of the fact that the JEE Main is a screening round for the JEE Advanced. On an average, 12 Lakh candidates take JEE Main and approximately only 2 Lakhs students are qualified to take the JEE Advanced.


The JEE Main consists of 90 questions with 30 each in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. The correct answer carries four marks, however, one mark will be deducted for every wrong attempt. The JEE Main is not a hard nut to crack if you are good at all the concepts in the syllabus. As the D-Day is approaching, we've listed a few tips specifically required on the last day of the exam preparation.

Top 10 Last Minute Tips To Crack JEE Main 2018

‘No’ To Big Concepts

Revise only the important formulas and theorems on the last day. If you've prepared any notes, revise from them because you'll understand better, how to solve all the derivations.

‘No’ To New Concepts

Starting a new concept just before the exam day will make you to overthink, which will ultimately lead to stress and panic. Always be positive and make yourself better in the concepts you've mastered.

‘No’ To Insufficient Sleep

‘No’ To Insufficient Sleep

After 1-2 years of extensive preparation, students end up doing some silly things on the last day such as not having sufficient sleep. One should have at least six hours of sleep for a fresh mind on the exam day.

Not To Junk Food

Taking junk food prior to exam day is one among the bizarre things. The street or junk food is not recommended for a healthy day. Try to restrict yourself at least on the last day because none of us doesn't know how it will cost you on the exam day.

‘No’ To Movie

This might be a hobby to many students to ease their stress on the last day. However, it is not advised, because many students have complained that a scene in the movie has stuck in their mind while taking the exam.

‘No’ To Last Minute Rush

Keep all the required items for the exam at one place such as admit card, ballpoint pen, pencil and others. On the exam day, you shouldn't give space for panic to these petty things.

‘No’ To Late Entry

In most situations, students won't be allowed to enter the examination hall during the grace time. So never get late on the exam day. Reach the exam centre at least one hour before the scheduled time.
