JEE is one of the most prestigious and sought after exam that an engineering aspirant in India would aspire to crack. The exam is unique in itself because it doesnt ask you questions in conventional way from some books and you answer them. Questions are majorly newly designed and original. The exam focuses on not only testing your calculation skills, attentiveness but your conceptual abilities and analytical skills. Till last year, for admissions into GFTIs (Government Funded Technical Institutions): NITs, IIITs, CFTIs (Centrally Funded Technical Institutions) and various SFTIs (Self Funded Technical Institutions), CBSE conducted All India Engineering Entrance Examination. This is very first time Joint Entrance Examination Main (JEE Main) is conducted instead of AIEEE which also served as screening round to appear for JEE Advanced-The gateway to prestigious IITs! Why JEE? You will often hear students saying I can understand the theory but I cannot solve the numerical. This may suit arts of humanities student but not a science student. Specially, when you are aspiring to be an IITian, you MUST have the will to learn and improve yourself. It is perfectly acceptable and legitimate to aspire for the best but it must be well understood that what is the cost to achieve the best. In case of JEE, it is requires dedicated open-eyed efforts and focus for the dream. Every engineering aspirant some or the other day dream and aspire to crack JEE and study in a good college like IIT or NIT. The reason is self-explanatory! They are the Mecca of technical education in India. IITs and NITs offers you the best possible facilities, peer group, faculties and of course future opportunities. Why to talk about doubts and myths then? You are preparing for JEE? Dont you think you MUST know what are the top 10 myths you and other JEE Aspirants have about JEE and JEE Preparation! We are going to discuss the 10 MYTHS students or to be rightful JEE Aspirants-LIKE YOU have. In recent years, 100s of students have asked us these questions and we bring you a consolidated form of Myths a JEE Aspirant must not have. Its a must read for all JEE Aspirants. Lets begin the journey of introspection! 3. Careers360 www.engineering.careers360.com Page 4 JEE Aspirant must know10 Myths MYTH#1 One has to study very hard to clear IIT! To achieve anything big in life one has to put the best efforts. And when we are talking about one of the toughest exams it is surely need of time. But merely working hard is not the key. There has to be proper planning, time management, managing the course and topics properly. You also need to ensure you are tracking and analyzing your performance repeatedly by mock examinations and tests. Every student, whether it be you, your friend, people who cracked JEE in past or anyone else, have the same 24 hours in a day and it all comes to how efficiently you managed and utilized your time. MYTH#1 You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it. 4. Careers360 www.engineering.careers360.com Page 5 JEE Aspirant must know10 Myths Coaching is substitute to the hard work and a must to crack JEE! Many people develop this misbelieve that to crack JEE coaching is a must! They believe that joining a good coaching institute will make you more compatible to crack JEE and will act as a substitute to the hard work. This is absolutely wrong! To an extent, coaching helps you in channelizing your energy and efforts in right direction, by means of experienced faculties and presenting study material, questions, content and guidelines in simplified manner. But it does not mean if you are not joining a coaching your schedule will be a mess, you will never understand the concepts or you will not be able to crack JEE! Until and unless you dont do vast variety of questions, develop understanding for the concepts and their applications under various scenarios, you wont be able to gain the confidence that yes you can crack JEE. Most of the students are mislead by the fancy misleading advertisements in newspapers, pamphlets, Television or any other source bragging about the success and number of selections from their institute. JEE can be cracked without coaching as well! Remember, and mark these words, at the end of the day, there is no magic in coaching institutes which can get you selected in JEE. The magic lies in you, you are the magician and the strong will and dedicated efforts will get you there. Coaching can help you in achieving the same. MYTH#2 5. Careers360 www.engineering.careers360.com Page 6 JEE Aspirant must know10 Myths Questions asked in JEE are very tough, lengthy and complex! A lot of students have this misbelieve that the questions asked in JEE are very long and run across the page. Gone are those days when JEE used to be subjective and completely solving 2 questions out of 5 was considered good. Questions in JEE now are focused on testing your conceptual knowledge, analytical skills and through understanding of topic along with numerical abilities. Similar is the pattern which is followed in other prestigious exams too like CAT-Prestigious IIMs takes admissions based on CAT scores(along with considering various other parameters like previous academic record, Work experience, Group Discussions & Personal Interviews etc.) You dont believe me? Go and check the previous year questions of IIT and note how many questions were there which asked for the mathematical labor. There will be set of questions not running down more than 3-4 steps but needed strong analytical and conceptual application. In recent years, the pattern of JEE is inspired by the NCERT format as well. You will find questions related to practical applications, laboratory experiments and related terminologies. The professors working on the JEE paper are wise and well aware that they are preparing it for a 12th pass-out kid and what has to be the difficulty level. So what should be your focus be is to strengthen the conceptual knowledge & practice practice and practice. MYTH#3 The price of success is hard work, dedication to job at hand, and determination that whether we win or lose we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at end. 6. Careers360 www.engineering.careers360.com Page 7 JEE Aspirant must know10 Myths I have 2 years still to sit in exam, I will start preparation later! Its never too early to start. There is no gain without pain. If the new pattern of JEE Advanced and JEE Mains prevails for 2014, it simply means in JEE Mains-the screening round you will be facing competition of 15 lacs aspirants. First hurdle is to get into top 1.5 lacs students to be eligible for JEE Advanced. And its not going to be easy at all. Remember, you know yourself better than anyone else. When you give yourself proper amount of time to study and grab to concepts it yields better results. Its not like if you dont prepare for minimum 2 years or start some foundation course from class 5th itself you cant crack IIT entrance. Its more about understanding your capabilities and efforts needed for the goal and utilizing all the available time in best manner. MYTH#4 Start today, not tomorrow. If anything, you should have started yesterday. The earlier you start, the more time you have to mess up. 7. Careers360 www.engineering.careers360.com Page 8 JEE Aspirant must know10 Myths Basics are for mediocre students! I will focus on solving lot of questions only. Thats what is asked in exam.

But often it is seen that students try to jump to
