Preparation tips for BOARDS, JEE and NEET.
For engineering and medical aspirants aiming to crack JEE and NEET, 2022 will be an important year. With the pandemic still around the corner, students in their decisive years of education are now fixated on getting 2022 right for their careers. 2022 will be a crucial year for both engineering and medical aspirants aiming to crack the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) and the medical entrance examination, i.e. National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET). The last two years of the pandemic left several educational institutions in a jolt. This has made it imperative for students to hit the bull’s eye in 2022 and take a step ahead towards their professional goals.

Most of the students found themselves to be more at ease studying online. Lessons learnt online were found to be time-effective and imparted concepts in ways that were much easier to remember and register. Concept-based short videos, subjective/objective tests and (Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ’s) related well with students who chose to learn online. Additionally, easy access to online tutors made the pandemic years extremely resourceful for students preparing for entrance examinations.
Entrance Exams and Board Exams
As per reports, the National Testing Agency (NTA) is most likely to schedule JEE Mains from February 2022 onwards, in four sessions, going up to May 2022. As JEE is fast approaching, students have a tendency to side-line the preparations for the Board examinations. However, students must remember that the preparation for their Board examinations is equally important to compete in the entrance examinations.
- Board examinations require the students to memorize conceptual answers for 5-marker and 10-marker questions.
- Entrance examinations, on the other hand, require them to focus on the nitty-gritty of MCQs.
- To strike a balance between the two, it is necessary to integrate Board preparations into entrance exam requirements.
A few tips for students to prepare more effectively are listed below:
- Making Notes A Must: While memorizing important concepts, students should try making notes and pointers for important terminologies.
- Smart Time Allocation: Allocation of time for both the paper patterns. For example, if studying a Thermodynamics chapter for the Boards for an hour, giving 10 minutes of time to MCQs right after can help soak in the concept.
- Mock Tests are the Key: Mock tests help students assess their level of preparation. Also, they help students manage their time effectively.
- Past Question Papers: Solving previous years question papers is a great way to understand the nature of questions asked.
Knowing the Pattern Helps Significantly
- As the February 2022 session of JEE examination is fast approaching, students must remember to stay updated with the pattern of the questions. Here are some paper patterns to refer:
- NEET consists of 200 questions, wherein students are expected to answer 180 questions only.
- Similarly, as per updates made in the JEE Main paper pattern in 2021, the number of questions was increased to 90, out of which only 75 were to be attempted.
- This year too, the JEE Main 2022 examination will be conducted in two parts. Part 1 for admissions into B.E and B.Tech and Part 2 for B.Arch.
- The negative marking scheme continues to stay. Every question comes with a negative marking clause of one mark deduction for every wrong answer. Negative marking is basically a test of tact for students to pave their way through tricky questions.
Cut-Off Trends and Important Topics
- Cut-off trends reiterate the need for smart work. It helps in attempting and choosing questions that students can focus more on.
- The cut-off last year for JEE Mains was 87.899, whereas, for NEET, the cut-off stood at the 50th percentile.
- Important Physics concepts; Thermodynamics, Kinematics and Laws of Motion, must be brushed up inside out.
- For NEET, one must be well versed with the Biology basics of ‘Ecology and Environment and the nitty-gritty of ‘Plant and Animal Physiology.’
