With less than two months to spare for JEE Main Exam 2019 January session, you must take a glimpse of how to prepare for JEE Main in 45 days. The study plan for JEE Main preparation is made by our educational experts who have appeared and cracked the examination before. On top of it, the schedule ensures that it doesn’t hamper your Class XII board exams preparation. As per the official notification by National Testing Agency (NTA), the first session of JEE Main will be held from 6th to 20th January 2019.
You have roughly 40-45 days in your hand, but the best thing about our JEE Main strategy is that it will help you prepare for the board exam simultaneously. Just make sure you stick to this 45 days plan for JEE Main till the night before the exam. Let’s get started!
5 Things to remember before starting your JEE Main Preparation?
Follow the mentioned tips to make sure you are studying the smart way.
Study from Authentic Books:
Before sticking to this study plan, ensure that you study from the authentic books by reputed authors (For example- HC Verma is one of the best books to study Physics).
- Class XII preparation is equally important:Also, focus on Class XII preparation from NCERT books. Ultimately, your Class 12th percentage determines whether you are eligible to appear for admission to IITs/NITs/CFTIs. The minimum required percentage to qualify in the JEE Main exam is 75%.
- Study every single day:Do not let go even a single day without the preparation as it will double up the number of topics the next day!
Save at least 1 hour for the hobby:
You are doing no justice to your body if you do not spend an hour on your most favorite thing each day. Spend some time playing outdoors if possible to relieve the stress.
Seek guidance from experienced candidates:
Always remember, “There’s no person wiser than an experienced one” as you get to know lots of strategies which a book can never teach you.
JEE Main 2019 Preparation: Last 45 Days
The mentioned JEE study plan will not only help the beginners but also the prepared candidates who are seeking the revision tips for JEE.
Week 1: Study the basic concepts of each section
Start-off your preparation for the JEE Main by studying the basic concepts which are covered within the first three units of the syllabus in each subject. For Example- In Physics, the first three units (Units & Dimensions, Measurement of Errors & Vectors) will help you grasp all the basic formulas, derivations, and conversions. Follow the same strategy in Chemistry and Mathematics too.
|Day 1||Units & Dimensions||Mole Concept||Limits & Derivatives|

|Day 21||Keep solving the sample papers and mock tests every seventh day of the week to test your accuracy and speed.|
Week 4: Day-wise Subject Plan (2 Fresh Topics + 1 Revised Topic)
By now, your half the preparation must be complete. Next, you will be following a day-wise subject plan which will include two fresh topics and a previously revised topic.
|Day 22||Physics||Nuclear Physics, Modern Physics, Kinematics|
|Day 23||Chemistry||Electrochemistry, Solutions, s-block elements|

JEE Main Examination: Work on your weak areas in the last 3 days
Do not study any fresh topics rather focus on solving questions from important topics. Do the complete revision for once and work on your weak areas. Also, revise all the formulas and take a quick look at all the notes prepared by you.
JEE Main Preparation for Droppers & Class XII Board Examinees
Students appearing in Class XII Board Exams
Study in 3 shifts every day:
Paper-I will include questions from 3 subjects including Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics. The best thing you can do is a study in three different shifts after school. On an average, a student appearing for both Class XII board & JEE Main spend 2 hours in coaching or taking tuitions. Therefore, you have roughly 5-6 hours left before you go for a good night sleep.
Spend 1 Hour on each subject daily (excluding coaching hours):
Sounds a bit tough! Considering preparation for both the competitive examinations, spending an hour on each subject is the most efficient and consistent strategy.
Dedicate your most inactive hour to Mathematics:
Prefer studying Mathematics in the last shift of the day. This is because it takes the least concentration of yours among the three subjects.
Study your weak subjects at your most energetic hour:
In case you are weak in Chemistry or Physics, it is recommended to focus on these subjects at the time when your concentration level is maximum.
For droppers (students who take a year break for the preparation after Class XII board exams)
You are certainly at a slight advantage of cracking the JEE Main Exam if you have taken a year-long break. It leaves you ample amount of time to do the preparation plus you do not have to focus on Class XII board preparation.
Dedicate 2.5 hours to each subject daily:
As you are not going to school any longer, it gives you lots of time to invest in JEE exam preparation. Make sure you find at least 2.5 hours for each subject on a regular basis.
A study from NCERT books to strengthen your basics:
The only disadvantage a school passed-out faces is that he is not in touch with the NCERT books. Studying from an NCERT book helps you improve your grip over the subject.
Do not get distracted from your goal:
It is usually seen that the droppers are prone to get distracted as compared to school-goers. Stay in good company and talk to people who can guide you during the preparation.
