How did you prepare for the exams?
The preparation started way back in Class 8 when i started freelancing in Maths that wasn’t a part of school curriculum, partly to prepare for the Math Olympiad and partly just out of curiosity. Using the summer vacations for the studies of the forthcoming year, I used the rest of the time to good effect, as a result of which I was introduced, to some depth, to the JEE syllabus in Maths by the time I entered class 11. I planned in advance, concentrating on each subject one by one, starting with Physics, moving on to Mathematics and Organic Chemistry by December and finishing off with the rest by March. After that, i prepared mostly for the Physics and chemistry Olympiads over the next 6 months at the conclusion of which I mostly just sat for test series and gave a huge number of MCQ tests, wherever i could lay hands on. I concentrated on theoretical understanding of the subject and practising “mains” type problems rather than MCQs except in the last 3 months before JEE.
What was your motivation was it just brand IIT or something else?
