Paper Attempting Tips for JEE Mains -  Learn the Tricks to Maximize Your Score


Attempting the paper properly is the key to get success in any exam. To make you aware of the accurate techniques to avoid mistakes in the exam, we are presenting some important paper attempting tips for JEE Mains 2020: -



1. Take a Quick Overview of Paper


As soon as the JEE Main Paper comes in your hand, go through it and pick up the questions which are easy and average. Answer them first as this will not only help you to score good but also save you from regrets of not attempting easy questions. JEE is the test of your temperament. Solve questions with a plan to maximize your score.



2. Don’t Waste Too Much Time on a Single Question


Wasting too much time on a question will lead you towards the situation of panic and frustration which will impact your efficiency. If you are not getting the answer on the very first try, we suggest you move on. You can take that question at the end of the paper.



3. Be Positive and Confident


While going in the exam hall, be confident and think positive. Don’t panic as it can blank you out. Have faith in yourself and your hard work.



4. Don’t Make Random Guesses


Random guesses for any question will fetch negative marks and ultimately bring down your score. Try to attempt those questions first, which are easy to gain confidence.

5. Read Questions Carefully


In a lot of stress students sometimes read questions wrongly and make mistakes. Therefore, be calm and read questions very carefully.



6. Give your 100 Percent Attempt


Try to give your 100% while attempting the paper. Because when you put your 100 percent efforts in your JEE Main Preparation, your chances of becoming successful increases. And, even if you are not able to crack the exam, you won’t feel disappointed by assuming that it would be better if you have practiced more.



7. Solve Questions in Cycles


Solve easy questions in the first round. In next round, solve the remaining questions. Don’t waste more than 5 minutes on any question. Solving questions in different cycles will make tough questions easier as you are trying different methods in each round.



8. Set Subject Order


After attempting easier questions, it is important to solve the questions according to your subject strengths. If you are comfortable with Chemistry then focus on that. After solving easier subjects, go to the toughest one because in halfway of the time you can struggle with questions. In the end, solve the subject in which you’re average.



9. Unsoiled Rough Work is a Must


People generally don’t understand the vital role of rough work. Avoid rough work in a haphazard way as this will make your task more complicated at the time of the revision. Leave enough space between rough work of each question and mark question number for each question in the rough work. This approach has multiple benefits.



10. Time Management is Important


Remember that JEE exam is not about high attempts but about the accuracy and speed. Time management is important when you go for different cycles to attempt questions. Keep solving questions in cycles until 35-40 minutes are left.


After that, check your answers and you can save around 10 minutes if you follow the advice related to rough work. After rechecking you can attempt the questions for which you feel confident that you can solve them in the remaining time. This will fetch you some extra marks and prove to be a big gain for you.

Finally, we conclude here by saying that JEE Mains is all about the relative performance. If the paper is tough for you then it will be tough for everyone else. Just don’t lose your heart if your attempts are less. It may be possible that you have high accuracy. Just believe in yourself and give your 100%.


Overthinking will lead you nowhere. It will only give you a lot of stress. No matter can be solved by going to the past and the future. Just let it be. Remember!! Mains 2020 Exam is not your last exam and all your future doesn’t depend on this single attempt. Just be relax and have faith in your hard work.

    Dear jee main candidates, Do not give jee mains in 2018 as it is going to be a tough one and average candidates wouldn't even hope for an nit in lower branch this is going to be only for topper in India. and from this year seat-shirts in colleges are reduced, so give jee in 2019 as seats will be increased and paper will also be easy. Best of luck now you have 1 year to revise everything properly.
