It brings several benefits and a different level of comfort, which can’t be gained by starting late. Today, we present you the major benefits of starting early for JEE preparation, which will be enough to convince you to adapt this strategy. Here we go: –

More Time, Better Planning

When you have a healthy amount of time, you can plan in a much better way than having a limited amount of time. The issue with starting late is that you cannot play a wrong move in your preparation strategy, because one wrong move can waste a healthy chunk of time. For instance, one month wasted out of 6-8 months is a much bigger loss than one month lost from 2 years.

  • Further, when you have enough time with you, you can do better introspection and can analyze your strengths and weaknesses better.
  • So if you are good in mathematics, then you can start devoting lesser time to it.
  • Or if you are weak in chemistry, you can start solving more such questions.
  • So starting early gives you the comfort of trying different strategies and thus in better planning.

JEE Main Preparation


You can get your basics right smoothly

Getting the basics right is a very important aspect of preparing for JEE Main. Many times, we have seen students struggling in some tricky questions in the exam. This is majorly because such unique questions required a little more deeper applications of the basics which candidates were not aware of.

  • But when you prepare in a rapid-fire mode, sometimes the basics don’t get the attention they deserve.
  • While when you have a healthy amount of time, you can always work on your basics better.
  • Especially, if you were not good at science in Class 8, 9 and 10, you should definitely start early.
  • Plus, this also gives you time to solve a diverse range of questions from books of various authors, which is always a benefit.
  • Thus, with a longer period, you can ace the core syllabus of JEE Main in a proper manner, which ultimately helps in mastering tougher questions better.

More Mocks, More Practice

It is quite obvious that when you have more time, you can always solve more questions. You can solve NCERT books, Past year papers, your coaching institute’s material (if any) and some recommended books too. While in rapid fire preparation, you may not be able to go through all 4 of these. So one big benefit with starting early is that you can do more questions from diverse sources, which in turn would make you a better prepared and confident candidate.

  • Along with this, we all know that Mock Tests are an essential thing today.
  • In the long run, you can take more mock tests and thus can get ready for the D-day better.
  • Always realize that someone having 20-25 mock tests under his belt always has a better idea of the exam than someone having 10 mocks.
  • So starting early lets you understand the exam itself in a better way.


You Can Balance Other Things With JEE Pretty Well

Well, when you are preparing for JEE Main, you are not just preparing for JEE. There are class 12 boards, other competitive examinations and many other things to deal with. And since JEE’s syllabus is humongous and competition is ruthless, managing other things with JEE becomes very tough.

  • But when you have a good amount of time, let’s say two years, then you can manage all such things pretty comfortably.
  • So you can appear for exams like KVPY, other engineering entrance exams, or can even involve better in your hobbies and co-curricular activities.
  • And plus, you can focus better on your Class 12 boards, which is quite significant even in your career.

So starting early lets you ease out things, rather than rushing for everything relentlessly.

You can learn from others as well

When you devote a longer period of time to JEE Preparation, one benefit that you get is that you can see what other people did wrong in their final JEE exam. You can take advice from repeaters or toppers, about what to do and what not to do. Although your teachers will always be there to help you, the learning from actual test takers are an added advantage.

With ample time in hand, you can also gauge the trends of the exam in a better way and thus can somehow get ready for the exam in a better manner. Moreover, you can use various Android apps for JEE Main 2021 preparation.

Conclusion: How early should one start?

So if starting early is better, should I start preparing for JEE right from class 5, or maybe even before that? Well, it’s only good as a joke, don’t take it seriously.

Starting from class 5, 6, 7 or 8 is un-needingly early. In our opinion, the best time to start is right after your class 10 board exams. At this moment, you are good enough to know what you are doing, and can maintain that motivation level to work hard too. Plus, 2 years are enough to prepare for any entrance exam in India, so you need not go beyond that.
