The need for a coaching centre to go about the preparation is completely subjective and depends upon the student’s preference. Coaching centres can give you a direction through their guidance and can bring regularity in the study pattern. Your performance will also be regularly analyzed, helping you improve. On the other hand, self-study has its own benefits. You can save money, travelling time and energy. In the case of self-study, be very focused during school lectures and take help your school teachers for doubt clarification.

**Start from Class XI:** It’s constantly advisable to start the preparation from class 11th, as you’ve opted your stream and you are aware if you will be sitting for JEE Main. Starting in class 11th will also save you from taking a drop after 12th as two years are more than sufficient for a balanced and good preparation.

**Be thorough with your concepts:** It is very essential for students to keep their concepts clear, as the questions can be placed in any manner. With clear concepts, candidates can also tackle twisted questions.

**Practice Exam Oriented Questions:** Students must practice exam-oriented questions after the learning process, this will help them analyse their mistakes and correct them.

**Get Good Study Material:** Each book uses the different methodology of explaining concepts. Some books offer easy explanations while some use technical jargon. Students should use books best suited for them with a language which they are comfortable with.

**Practice with Sample Papers:** Sample papers are the blueprints of original paper which familiarize students with the difficulty level, examination pattern, marking scheme and time limitation, important topics that have been repeated over the years. Hence, Sample Papers or Previous Year Question Papers must be studied by students.

**JEE Main preparation tips define the steps to be followed by students wishing to solve the exam and taste success in it. Some of the preparation tips recommended by experts and toppers are:**

- Check the syllabus and study all topics thoroughly
- Understand the examination pattern
- Prepare a study program and adhere to it well
- Check important books and topics recommended by toppers

Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is an engineering entrance examination conducted for admission to different engineering colleges in India. It is organised by two different examinations such as **JEE Main** and the JEE Advanced. The examinations are of the objective pattern. JEE Advanced is considered universally as one of the most challenging undergraduate admission tests.

In 2012, the government-run CBSE that earlier conducted the AIEEE declared the JEE that replaced the AIEEE and IIT-JEE. The JEE-Main is for admission to the National Institutes of Technology, Indian Institutes of Information Technology, and some other colleges designated as centrally funded technical institutes. The JEE Advanced is to get the admission to the Indian Institutes of Technology. Only the students selected in JEE Main are qualified for appearing in JEE Advanced. About 224,000 students will be selected from 2018.

There are different institutes like the Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research, Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology, and the Indian Institute of Science which use the marks obtained in JEE Advanced as the basis for admission. These are not participating institutes of central IIT JEE Advanced counselling of which all IITs are members. Any student who takes admission to IITs cannot appear for the JEE-Advanced examination in the next year, but the same is not the case with IISER, RGIPT, IISc and other institutes as these institutes only use JEE Advanced mark for admission.

In 2013, the IIT Council confirmed the decision of the Joint Admission Board to continue with the two-phase JEE pattern (Main and Advanced) for IITs in 2014. Joint Seat Allocation Authority conducted the joint admission process for a total of 23 IITs, ISM, 32 NITs, 18 IIITs and 19 other Government Funded Technical Institutes.

As per the report from Ministry of Human Resource Development of Government of India, the government is considering to conduct only one basic engineering entrance test based on the policies of NEET for all engineering colleges, including private institutions, across India.
