Now that we are past the March attempt of IIT JEE Mains 2021, our strategies must focus on the April attempt of IIT JEE Mains 2021. This is a crucial time as a lot of IIT JEE aspirants are confused whether they should start preparing for JEE Advanced or should they focus on JEE Mains April. So here is Margdarshan trying to clear the clutter inside your minds and help you take the right path.
Let’s Analyse The JEE Mains March Paper
First things first, the March attempt paper was relatively tougher compared to the February attempt. That was expected, however, and we can safely assume that the coming attempts could be even tougher. In the March attempt, the Maths section was especially high on difficulty, while the Chemistry section consisted of tricky questions. It must be noticed though that a lot of chemistry questions were directly NCERT based, especially in the Organic and Inorganic Chemistry section.
Before We Dive Into The Strategy
One must evaluate where they stand after the March attempt before they begin further preparation. Once the answers are tallied with any answer key from a credible source, one can get a fair idea of where they stand in terms of the expected score. That understanding is crucial in strategizing further preparation for JEE 2021.
For Expected March JEE Mains Score Below 120
If one is expecting a March JEE Mains score of 120 or below, they can expect to secure a rank of somewhere between 15,000 and 20,000. Sure, there will be a few NITs and other good colleges that will be available to candidates with such a rank, but they will have to compromise with their branch. On the other hand, if they have strong branch preferences, they will have to compromise with the institute. Thus, it is suggested for these candidates that instead of going for JEE Advanced preparation, they must focus on giving the April attempt and scoring better. During this period they must focus on the following:
For Expected March JEE Mains Score Between 120 & 150
For the expected March JEE Mains score between 120 and 150, the rank could lie somewhere between 7,000 and 15,000. At this rank, one could easily get NITs along with getting their preferred branches, as well as a few IITs too with middling branches. However, getting the Top branches at preferred IITs would be difficult. Thus, this category of students must strike a balance between preparing for JEE Mains April Attempt as well as JEE Advanced 2021. These students must focus on the following:
For Expected March JEE Mains Score Above 150
Needless to say, the candidates with a score of 150+ must focus heavily on JEE Advanced preparation, while keeping a slight eye on JEE Mains April Attempt too. For these candidates, Margdarshan would like to suggest a few books to help them in their JEE Advanced Preparation. These books include
Along with these, the candidates must focus on Mocks and PYQs as they will help in both JEE Mains and JEE Advanced preparation. Additionally, candidates with score above 170 should give PYQs as a Mock Test only, preferably on alternate days, and focus on analysis on the same.
