Dear JEE Hustlers
Expert tips on:
How to underperform in JEE Main 1st Attempt and be a disappointment to yourself and of course your support system?
By not taking 2022-2011 series of PYQs as tests with thorough analysis
By focussing on variety of topic coverage than conceptual depth in each of the topic especially:
These topics have been asked consistently across 3 years for more than 50% of the total marks: 150/300 which amounts to 95-98%ile depending on your shift
By ruining your health in between (viral infection, food infection, cough/cold etc.) as it is nearly impossible to bounce back to health and perform to your expectations
By not giving PYQ based mock tests in Morning JEE slot- 9 AM to 12 PM
And afternoon JEE slot-2 PM-5 PM on alternate days till your JEE attempt and spending more time in solving questions than revising your mistakes and upgrading your Formulae Missiles
By not dedicating time for daily physical exercise (minimum 15 mins)
By repeatedly trashing your preparation by telling "It’s not great, it’s not good enough”, these words have a tremendous impact on the cooperation you receive from your brain
"JEE or Boards?” trust me, if you have made it so far, this shouldn't be really bothering you

+x moles of Anxiety+y moles of Overthinking
You very well know what I am talking about!
Have immense fun preparing
(Hopefully by NOT adhering to any of the above tips)
Stay in Stable Equilibrium!
Managing Distractions>>>Conquering Distractions
Read on if you are anxious about the External Board Practical Exams (ongoing and upcoming)
Practical files/Records to be completed according to the prescribed format, you may present the record as beautifully as possible, and some external examiners are very particular about appearance and especially Index and precautions (if any)
(This is like fixed deposit scheme, more than 80% of your practical’s marks is ensured by record & project report)
Ask yourself: all your anxiety and tension worth for only 5+ marks?
No, isn’t it?
Converting Viva to 'Wow'va
Three possible areas for external's questions:
A: Any experiment in your practical record, yes that’s his/her choice, highly probable that the experiment you have been allotted to perform on the exam day shall be quizzed
Pro tip: Observations (tables and graphs) from each experiment should be "very familiar" to you (Memorisation/Tricks/otherwise)
B: Your investigatory project (if any): The minute details
C: The Hiroshima/Nagasaki equivalent bomb from an examiner is when they ask you to name a chapter in class XII in which you are very comfortable, so be prepared with couple of chapters of your choice!
No arguments with the external examiners and always underplay, I hope you understand
Even during this ongoing Practical exam, if you could spare minimum of 5-6 hrs for JEE/NEET/Boards you shall certainly be rewarded with better results, this control button in your mind after all!
Be more practical, less emotional
May you manage the Practical exams to the best you can!
