Understanding the Exam
JEE Advanced is one of the toughest exams on the planet. In order to crack JEE Advanced, the student is required to have a clear understanding of the syllabus and a strategy to go through that syllabus in 2 years. The JEE Advanced exam paper questions are based on XI-XII grade Physics, Mathematics, and Chemistry syllabus. These simple concepts are mixed in one single question to make a multi-chapter/concept based questions, thus making them a bit difficult to solve in given time frame for students. These questions are solvable if a student is exposed to similar questions which require some algebraic/mathematical manipulation and practices a lot of questions over the span of two years.
Prepare for IIT-JEE
Even if you start in April you need to cover 1 chapter per week for the JEE.
