Most students find it difficult to determine exactly how much time, they should spend in activities in studying. This is particularly important right at the beginning of the study so as to make an effective study plan.

This is complicated even more by the fact that every chapter requires different amount of time. Even different subjects require different amounts of time in theory and problems.

The different questions that come to the mind of the student are:

  • How much time should be spent in reading from the textbook?
  • Are the notes from tuition/coaching enough? Can I manage without reading the textbook?
  • Is there anything to read from the textbook in Mathematics?
  • How much time should I spend in solved examples given in the IITJEE course material>
  • How much time should be allocated to a certain topic?
  • How much time should be spent on a problem that is not getting solved before looking at the solution or asking for help?
  • How much time should I spend in testing at home?
  • How should I calculate the total time required?

We have tried to answer these questions by giving an indicative time plan.

    Rohan, we have a lot of articles on time management… some of them are as follows:

    http://www.questtutorials.com/blog/iit-jee-study-planner-weekly-timetable/
    http://www.questtutorials.com/blog/iitjee-study-planner-annual/

    However, your problem appears to the be lack of time due to coaching classes.
    Please read the new pattern of JEE. (www.questtutorials.com/blog/iit-jee-tips/new-iit-jee-pattern-jee-main-jee-advanced-2013/)
    The school marks have become extremely important.
    The coaching classes may be causing you more harm than good.

    It is usually said that an JEE exam aspirant must study for at least 10-12 hours a day. Is it true? My younger brother is going to appear for JEE 2014 exam this year and He doesn’t study for more than 3-4 hours a day. Is there any chances for him?

    Whoever says this clearly never studied himself. It is physically impossible to study for 10-12 hours a day. I think he can target a maximum of 6 hours per day.

    (My JEE AIR-211) All the comments here are so stupid. IIT-JEE success requires dedicated training with a cool head. The people thinking of cracking it in 1st and studying thermodynamics in 7th should seriously get a life.
    11th and 12thies.. you should design your timetable yourself. Only you know your strengths and weaknesses.

    You should Manage your time in such a manner that you can cover your 12th as well as the 11th JEE topics also.
    As 12th class is very important, so you should keep focusing on achieve a good percentage in the Boards.
