‘Sound mind in a sound body’; this is an old saying very relevant to students who are preparing for examination. Remember, you have put in one year of hard work for this ‘D’ day. The marks or grade you score in the examination is not just a jugglery of figures; it is a benchmark of your effort, your performance. I am telling all these not to frighten you, but only to advise you to take some simple steps so that you keep fit to effectively take on the examination and come out successfully.
Your physical fitness
Examination is the time when you are glued to your study table for several hours. Therefore, it is the time when you also lack physical exercises. The body requires some rejuvenation. The body cells need enough blood to function properly. So, take at least about one hour of your time for exercises. Go to the nearest park or playground or to your backyard garden. Play with your brother or sister or friend in the neighbor or at least take rigorous walk so that you sweat and in turn make the body relaxed and rejuvenated.
Keep a tab on your food; totally give up high calorie food and junk food. Instead, switch over to food containing enough protein like fruits, nuts, vegetable salad etc. Drink enough water but reduce on beverages like tea and coffee. Remember, the food you take must supply enough protein and nutrients to your body. If you want you can even consult your physician or dietician who will guide your suitably.
You must have at least six hours of sound sleep. Some students are in the habit of reading during night. But according to physicians it is always advisable to sleep during night because with that the body gets maximum relaxation. If you have enough sleep you will not carry over the fatigue of the previous day and you feel fully relaxed.
Last minute preparation always makes you tensed. Therefore if you want to remain calm during the period of examination, the simple remedy is to start studying from the day one of your school or college days. You can also take the help of your teachers who would perhaps even provide with better tips on the method of preparing for various subjects. At the same time, you can also practice yoga and meditation. That would certainly provide you the much needed mental relaxation. Certainly your anxiety level will come down.
For example, after every two hours of study, take a short break of about 5 to 10 minutes. Just move out of your study table and walk in your back yard garden. Some students will not agree with this method. But according to educationists, this method of taking short breaks really does wonder. You will be able to retain what all you have studied during the last two hours.
If you follow these simple suggestions certainly you will be able to take your examination ‘head on’ and you will also come out with great success.
In respect of those students who passed their Board exam for the first time in 2012, the eligibility criteria for joining any of the IITs or ISM Dhanbad will be 60% marks in their 12th Board or equivalent (55% for SC/ST/PwD candidates). For those candidates who appear in their Board exams for the first time in 2013, the eligibility criteria will remain ‘top 20 percentile of the successful candidates’ in their Boards, category-wise. This will be a one-time exception for JEE (Advanced) 2013 only.
For those students who passed their 12th Board exams in 2012 but are re-appearing in the 2013 Board exams with a view to improve their performance, 60% rule will apply if they use their 2012 Board exam results and ‘top 20 percentile’ rule will apply if they use their 2013 Board exam results. This too will be a one-time exception for JEE (Advanced) 2013 only.
In case the percentile score is not available from testing agencies [such as Pre-University exam conducted by a University, two-year course of the Joint Services Wing of the National Defence Academy, General Certificate Education examination (London/Cambridge/Sri Lanka), High School Certificate Examination of Cambridge University, International Baccalaureate Diploma (Geneva), Senior Secondary School Examination of National Institute of Open Schooling, three year Diploma recognized by AICTE / State Board of Technical Education and any Public School/Board/University examination in India or in any foreign country recognized as equivalent to the 10+2 system by the Association of Indian Universities (AIU)] the CBSE score for top 20 percentile of the successful candidates in the student’s category will be used.
For all Foreign Nationals, the eligibility criteria based on the qualifying examination shall be 60% aggregate marks.

Which way is better for giving AIEEE exam? ONLINE or OFFLINE.
-Yash asked –
I would personally recommend online. But the choice is up to you.
Please follow the following check to decide. Try to identify for yourself the plus points and negative points of writing AIEEE online and OFFLINE.
The most important disadvantage of choosing the OFFLINE version is the rarity of choices. You may have to travel long if you are not nearby the centre.
The decision is yours. But, think well before you decide.

We have received hundreds of questions on the above subject. As the questions continue to pour in, we found it necessary to create a post on it.
IIT JEE is an entrance exam of international repute and IITs are considered at par with MIT by many. So, if you are an IIT aspirant, it is very much essential to prepare well in advance.
In this article we are focusing on Physics only
Know the fundamentals
Knowing the fundamentals is the first step. Learn your daily lessons well. In learning Physics, “Questioning Every Answer is more important than Answering Every Question”
Whenever you learn a new concept, try to get all the doubts clarified. Ask doubts and questions to your teachers. (If they don’t answer you satisfactorily, post them at www.askphysics.com )
Observe your surrounding and try finding examples on what you have learnt. The syllabus and books give you a framework on what to study; but don’t just limit your studies on books and syllabus. Search related information from real life and other sources of reference.
RECOMMENDED BOOKS FOR IIT JEE PREPARATION
The very first book you cannot avoid is the NCERT TEXT BOOK for class XI and XII
These books are designed after thorough research and the exercises are carefully added. Be sure to solve all the exercises including the Additional Exercises
Here are some of the Books you can refer for practicing for IIT JEE
- Concepts of Physics (by H C Verma)
- Fundamentals of Physics (by Resnick, Hallidey)
- University Physics (Zemansky)
- Problems in Physics (IE Irodov)
By the by, having too much books will be a hindrance. It is better to start with the NCERT books and after mastering all the exercises take up Resnick Hallidey and after clarifying the concepts take up Problems from H C Verma’s concepts of Physics and then go on to IRODOV if time allows.
Wish you all the best.
