Why did I want to study at IIT?
I wanted to study at IIT as it is one of the best engineering colleges in the country and gives you a platform to excel. I always liked coding and computer science, and wanted to pursue a career in the same.
From ICSE to CBSE
I was in CICSE board school till Class 10 and then switched to a CBSE board school as the JEE syllabus matches with the latter. And, for any entrance exam, you have to study NCERT.
My preparation strategy
Due to Covid-19 pandemic, the classes were online. I used to attend online coaching classes from Allen Kota. While preparing for JEE, I would solve the homework and modules given by my teachers. Then, I would get my doubts cleared the next day and refer to books that would help me.
How did I revise for JEE
My syllabus was completed in November (2021). Soon after that, we began wijeeth the revision. For revision, I would go chapter-wise in every subject. We used to get revision modules from our coaching for every subject. Since, I didn’t have the easiest time with Chemistry, I studied additional material for it.
Follow what your teachers say and always revise whatever has been taught. Constant revision is the best way to remember everything.
