Nitesh Salvi answers, at 2012-11-01 15:42:48Hello, From now on to be in IIT, You have to clear two exams JEE Mains & JEE Advanced. Top 1,50,000 students from JEE Mains will be aligible fro JEE Advanced.

jee asked, why two exams? can you tell me how is mains different from advanced?
Nitesh Salvi answers, Both Mains and Advanced will be MCQ type exams. Your Mains and boards result will count to get into NITs and Advanced result will get you into IITs. Mains will contains problems similar to AIEEE pattern and Advanced will be based on more conceptual problems similar to previous year IIT-JEE pattern.
jee asked, thank you nitesh. what strategy would you suggest for both the exams?
Nitesh Salvi answers, cracking JEE requires clarity in basic concepts which is what board exams ask. Use the NCERT books as your concept revision tool. First complete chapter with full theory then try solving NCRT questions and then go for good questions for IIT-JEE.
harris asked, i think ISEET term is no longer used,anyway can JEE/Board be cleared without coaching ? is there any good correspondence course ?
Nitesh Salvi answers, Yes it can be cleared with coaching classes. Make a good timetable and complete one topic with theory and then try solving NCRT problem. This will help you for boards and then start solving good and conceptual problems. Don't forget that only learning chapters will not take you anywhere, it is questions that you need to answer in the final

'How to prepare for ISEET 2013?'
punu asked, which subjects are better scoring?
Nitesh Salvi answers, It totally depends on individual. You can score maximum in subjects you are good at. For many students chemistry is scoring subject.
harris asked, its not only about being good in PCM, percentile is decided including langauges and elective.
Nitesh Salvi answers, Yes, you are right. But students from IITs, almost 80 per cent have above 80 percentile in their respective boards. So if you are preparing seriously then you can definitely score it.
Pratika asked, how to prepare for ISEET dats more important. please share your tips
Nitesh Salvi answers, if you are focusing only on board exams, then getting a good rank in the ISEET has lesser probability because JEE requires more depth in knowledge of concepts. Make a timetable where every topic should be listed on a date. First complete the entire theory of that topic and then solve NCRT of the same topic. This will help you for the boards and yes, you should go for good and conceptual problem solving. If you have really prepared that topic for ISEET then you should be able to solve the problems of the NCERT book because they have the most basic questions.
