How to crack JEE Main 2018

How can I crack JEE Main 2018 in 3 months?

Asked By: Sahana,
Write an answer
Answer By: GetmyuniEnterprise

Hi Sahana,

You can crack JEE Main 2018 by following these 8 effective tips:

8 Effective tips to crack JEE Main

JEE Main which is considered to be the biggest Engineering Entrance exam in India sees almost 15 Lakh registrations every year out of which only 2.24 lakh students get qualified for JEE Advanced. And this qualification too does not guarantee an admission to NITs or IITs. Hence, the competition for JEE Main is very high. A good preparation strategy will pave way for candidates to crack JEE Main. Given below are 10 effective tips which would help candidates to plan their work and to crack JEE Main.


    Students who are preparing for JEE Main should analyze themselves and know their own strengths and weaknesses. If you are strong in a particular topic, then concentrate only on MCQs for that topic rather than wasting time on the theory part for that topic, by which you can save time, which in turn can be devoted for subjects which you are weak in.

Shortest Approach:

    Students should try to solve a problem in the shortest way possible, by which you can save time. For example, some problems can be solved in a few seconds without using the formula, whereas the formula method takes several minutes. Hence, candidates should be aware of all possible methods to solve a problem and use the one which consumes lesser time.

Time Management:

     There are 90 questions in JEE Main which are supposed to be solved in 180 minutes. Hence, on an average, you can take 2 minutes per question. However, there are some questions which are in a theoretical format, and arriving at answers to such questions takes less than 30 seconds. By answering such questions quickly, you can save time for questions which involve complex mathematical steps.

Plan Your Own Schedule:

     It is certainly not possible to complete the entire syllabus of JEE Main overnight. Even if you are starting late, and have a month/ few months left, still you can crack JEE Main by preparing only for selected topics which you are strong in. You can make a timetable for yourself and prepare accordingly. Make sure that you do not skip schedules. Even if you have several months left for preparation, working out your own schedule would still help as you can work more productively and even keep track of topics which you’ve covered.

Take Mock Tests:

     Though you have a good knowledge about each and every topic mentioned in the syllabus, you still might not have knowledge of the types of questions being asked in the exam. Hence, you must take mock tests that are conducted online. You can even get copies of previous year question papers and try solving them within a stipulated time. This enhances your speed and time management skills to a great extent. These mock tests also help you to get familiar with the exam pattern and the types of questions being asked in the exam. Try to improve your score during every subsequent try, as the saying goes “Practice makes a man perfect”.


    You can take notes for every topic while preparing, as you can use the same notes for revising a day prior to the exam day. By doing so, you can ensure that you don’t miss out any topic which you’ve prepared.

Answer Questions Smartly:

     At all times during the exam, never forget that for every wrong answer, 1 mark is reduced. It is not mandatory to answer all the questions. Hence, you can omit questions which you are not confident of, and start solving other easier ones. For example, if you’ve got 30 answers right and 40 answers wrong, then your marks would be 80. In the above scenario, 40 marks are lost due to negative marking, which can be avoided. Hence, concentrate only on questions which seem familiar and simple. Then if time permits, you can try answering the tougher ones. By this, you can save both time and marks.


    Last but not the least, take care of your health. Since the JEE Main exam is conducted during summer, several students fall ill and are unable to attend the exam. Hence, students are advised to stay calm and composed during the exam. Stay hydrated enough to prevent diseases which are caused due to heat
