When did you decided that the JEE was something you want to go for?
It was basically in 9th class that I even came to know about IIT JEE and that too when I saw students from 11th class taking coaching classes coincidently being held by some private coaching centre in my school on some rent basis.
How did you prepare for the exams?
I had a pretty much jam packed schedule everyday .I used to come home by 9pm almost every day. Hence, at max what I could do was to giving a quick go through whatever was done that day’s coaching. My preparation wasn’t at all exceptional. Though I couldn’t manage a rank in JEE in my 1st attempt but it definitely laid a strong basis for the year long effort ahead. The next year when I dropped I gave a min of 5 hours self study daily.
