How to prepare for JEE Advanced 2022

JEE Advanced 2022: The Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT-Bombay) will conduct the JEE Advanced 2022 exam tomorrow i.e. on 28th August. It is important for students to revise all the important topics a day before the exam and have a strategy ready to solve questions. for the day of the exam.

To help students prepare well for the exam, here are some expert tips and suggestions for exam day.

EMD-based strategy: what, why and how to use it

The EMD (Easy Moderate Difficult) based strategy takes advantage of the difference in the difficulty level of the JEE Advanced exam. It is a known fact that all questions have different levels of difficulty which can be classified into one of the 3 classes easy, medium and hard. In this approach, we ensure that all the easy questions from all the three sections are solved first. Only then should moderates be attempted. If there is still time after doing that, we can try to solve the hard ones.

Why does it work?

The answer to why the EMD based strategy lies in the inference derived from the data tabulated above. As you can see, over the years easy + moderate questions are almost 75-80 percent of total marks. Also, even the top 100 sites since 2015 have almost the same average. So even if a student leaves all the difficult questions and attempts and solves all the easy and moderate ones, he can finish in the top 100. Another fun fact is that even if a student only solves all the easy questions and some of the moderate questions, he can get a rank close to 20k.

How to apply it?

Although the exact application of the EMD technique may involve subjectivity, there are few general guidelines and general themes on how to apply it. To understand this we must know that the average number of questions asked during the last years in the paper is almost 56. The total allotted time is 3 hours or 180 minutes. Knowing that 80% of the paper is good enough to get top 100 ranking, there is approximately 4 minutes available for each question.

The objective of the EMD technique is to maximize the notes per unit time. So the ranking of the questions is based on this parameter. about,

Easy: Time needed to solve < 4 min

Medium: Time required for resolution > 4 min

Difficult: Time needed to solve more than 10 min

The aim is to solve all the easy questions in Physics, Chemistry and Maths first. Then it goes to the moderates. If there is still time available, try to solve the difficult questions. However, this is rarely possible

Diverse but important

Subject attempt order: Start with Chemistry and try to complete it in 30-45 min. Then you can attempt the Physics section and try to solve in less than an hour. The time saved in these two subjects can help in Mathematics which is usually long and tedious of the three. This is just a suggestion based on empirical evidence. Students can choose their own, but in the end they avoid Physics

Two papers one exam: The JEE Advanced has 2 papers one in the morning and the other in the afternoon of 3 hours each. Therefore, the performance of one item should not affect that of the other. This is relevant for both cases where 1St the role is good or bad. Both papers should be presented with a beginner’s mindset and no emotional correlation

Who is preparing the paper and what to expect?: This year IIT Bombay is preparing the paper. Before that they prepared the paper of 2015 and 2007. The common theme is surprise element, complicated and long solution. For example, the 2015 paper had no single-choice MCQs and heavy negative marking.
