Many students take a drop every year due to lack of preparation, not getting the desired engineering filed, health issue or due to some wrong strategy to crack the exam. The reasons may be anything to take a drop, but the final goal remains the same i.e crack the JEE Main successfully with a good rank. Dropping a year is a call taken by students who are confident of improving their performance in their next attempt.

The following tips will help the Repeaters in preparing for a desired rank in the JEE Main 2022 exam.

A. Work on Your Weaknesses: You know your weaknesses so focus on strengthening them. Work upon not repeating anything you did earlier which led to your poor performance. Have a positive mindset and don’t let this thought come into your mind that, what if I fail. Trust the process you followed in your preparation. Focus should be on earning concepts better and don’t just go by the marks after test. Rather make a note of the concepts you lack and revise it to solve questions related to it and make sure you have mastered it.

B. Take Mock Tests and develop the Right Exam Temperament: After completing a few topics, take up a mock test or solve previous years’ question papers, which would help you in analyzing the progress in your preparation. The candidate should evaluate the test results to understand where he/she is lagging. This would help gain perfection in the weaker topics. The mock test also helps in improving one’s speed and accuracy. Students

also get familiar with the exam pattern and types of questions asked through Mock Tests.

C. Join a short duration crash Course/ Test Series: If you had done self-study earlier or enrolled in a correspondence course, now you may enroll in a crash course along with a reputed All India Test Series to check your national level ranking. These tests help you know your current ranking at national level so that you may plug loopholes in your preparation. Additionally, you must attend the Test Analysis sessions after every Test

which will help you the kind of mistakes you are doing so that you do not repeat them in the actual exam.
