samad asked, Sir, please tell us "Dos and donts for the exam" in offline exam?
Ramesh Batlish answers, Always attempt theoretical questions first and then questions which require calculation. Its human nature that if you attempt a few confident questions in the beginning then you feel loaded with positive energy which increases your efficiency and speed for the rest of the paper. It is advisable to avoid numerical questions in the first 10 or 15 minutes of the exam
karan asked, Awaited reply sir.But no reply. Wasting time. I have to read for JEE2013.
Ramesh Batlish answers, Strategy for attempting the questions Positive attitude & harnessing the examination temperament built during preparation Read & follow all the instructions given in the questionpapers very carefully Plan your time, keeping an extra time in hand for revision Prioritize after a quick glance and start answering with the question you know best & move progressively to the ones you find difficult after attempting the complete paper. You must attempt questions carrying no negative marks Don't be nervous if you find the paper tough since it is the RELATIVE PERFORMANCE that counts. Hence put your best analytical mind to work, it will take you ahead Positive attitude & harnessing the examination temperament built during preparation Read & follow all the instructions given in the questionpapers very carefully Plan your time, keeping an extra time in hand for revision Prioritize after a quick glance and start answering with the question you know best & move progressively to the ones you find difficult after attempting the complete paper.

asasa asked, how to tackle nervousness before exam.
Ramesh Batlish answers, ONE DAY BEFORE THE JEE (Mains) One day before JEE (Mains) do not study anything. Stay calm, confident and trust yourself. Say to yourself I am excited about JEE (Mains) and I can crack it easily. Relax yourself or indulge in meditating a day before the actual Exam to give your best on the exam day.
