Rajivg asked, Madam, What is the best thing to do during exam breaks


Bhuvana Anilkumar answers, Dear Rajiv, do not worry about your first paper. This is the time to keep cool and think about your next paper. Do not discuss the answers to the previous paper.



RAMLALA asked, this time my preparation is not up to mark! What books I do for next time in maths, physics and chemistry ? Is class room coaching better then postal coaching?


Bhuvana Anilkumar answers, Hi Ramlala, I think this is not the time to get a list of books or any new material for writing the IIT-JEE. Concentrate your efforts on what you are strong in and wish you all the best!


dkr asked, Some precaution tips (dos and don'ts) before exam.


Bhuvana Anilkumar answers, Do not overstrain. Do not learn new concepts or areas. Revise what ever you have already done. Be confident.





Bhuvana Anilkumar answers, Now, all of us know this is yet to be found. But we can at least go by last year's pattern, ie multiple choice questions with one correct answer, MCQs with one or more correct answers, match the following type of questions, numerical answer (mains type) questions, comprehension based questions, etc.

Bhuvana Anilkumar answers, Manju, there are seven IITs and two deemed universities that come under the JEE.

baalu asked, IIT JEE is supposed to test the basic knowledge and skill of the student and why the testing patter is out of syllabus and high standard?
