It’s that time of the year when candidates have less time left in hand and lots of stress on the mind. They start revising at the maximum of their capacity, still feel unprepared. Have you ever thought why?
It is due to over-stress and lack of rest. Generally, it is noted that JEE Main or any other competitive exam aspirants quit food and sleep before few months of the exam because of tension. The trick lies in relaxing and revising important topics. Too much tension will affect your health in particular and life in general. Therefore, stay calm.
Here are 10 ways to start the JEE Main 2017 exam stress and score high in the exam.
1.Have a positive mindset throughout the process
Students should always be positive. Remember one thing, by taking tension you won’t clear the exam. Instead, it might only affect your health. If you allow negative things to capture your mind, it will be difficult for you to achieve success. Always keep in mind that you yourself are the biggest motivation.
2.Make a to-do-list
Make a routine and make sure you follow it rigorously. Generally, doctors recommend students should have adequate sleep before the exam. According to the experts, aspirants should adjust their biological timings as per the exam timings so that they remain alert during the test preparation. They say students should make a timetable, mentioning what needs to be done and at what time.
3.Look for varieties in studying spots
There are times when students get bored studying at the same place. In such situations, a change in the place of study/practice/revision will prove to be helpful. Try out studying in various areas of your house that will make you feel comfortable and productive too. For example, for studying and revising lessons, most of the students prefer sitting on the floor. They feel tired when studying on the sofa or bed. The sleepier you are, the harder it is to focus on your studies.
4.Eat healthy and have a good sleep
One of the common things that students compromise during exam days is sleep. You require 8 hours of sleep days before the exam starts. A body and mind which has got adequate rest will grasp information fast. Hence, students should eat fresh green veggies and drink lots of water regularly.
5.Always focus on quantity rather than quality
Everyone has that one friend who tells that he or she studies for almost 15 hours. Don’t get carried away by those stories. If you are able to finish the same number of lessons in much less time than your friend, then you are the winner.
6.Analyse your aptitude before appearing for JEE
Each one of us has our own favourite topics similarly, we have topics that we are not interested in hence avoid studying or revising them. You should actually focus on the stuff you are not so accustomed to. An aptitude test like dSAT is the best way to know your skills on a particular stream. The test not only helps you identify the right stream after class 10 but will also help you identify the right competitive exam you should prepare for. Although you have started preparing for JEE Main, have you ever thought about whether you have the skills to crack it or not. If not, think about it.

7.Don’t ignore revision
It is vital to revise things that you have studied but never overdo them. Move slowly and do not revise the same thing again and again. Take breaks frequently and try to solve problems that have high chances of appearing in the exam.
Taking breaks play a vital role in order to lighten and brighten a student’s mind. Breathe fresh air and relax after preparing for 2017 for long hours. You can go for walk, talk with friends, but make sure you do not discuss anything about stress or exam.
Meditating or exercising on a daily basis is suggested for students who are preparing for entrance exams. It is one of the best tips for concentrating while studying. Students are advised to work out at least 1 hour in their daily routine so that their body and mind get stabilized.
Finally, don’t lose hope. Don’t lose confidence. Always think that you are well-prepared for the exam and will clear it with flying colors.
