JEE Exam Details (Mains + Advanced)
JEE full form is the ‘Joint Entrance Examination,’ and it is considered as the most popular and at the same time an important examination for B.Tech aspirants who want to study in the topranked colleges like the IITs and NITs. The JEE is conducted by NTA (National Testing Agency).
JEE was first conducted in 1960 and became popular slowly thereafter. Now, not just the IITs and NITs but other universities, including AKTU, have started admitting students for their B.Tech courses through JEE. More than 20 lakh aspirants registered for the JEE Mains exam in 2021. It’s an additional 10 lakhplus in numbers since 2019.
Earlier, JEE was conducted two times a year; but in 2021, the government announced to conduct it four times (in a year). This change is intended to facilitate those who didn’t make the cut to grab a spot in their preferred tech colleges, so they needn’t wait an entire year to reappear for the examination.
It also helps those who, for some reason, couldn’t take the exam at an earlier date. JEE is conducted in two parts, JEE Mains and JEE Advanced. We will talk about both the exams in detail today.
JEE Mains is conducted first, and those who qualify for it appear for the JEE Advanced examination. Qualifiers of both the examinations get a chance to make a bright career in the tech industry by studying from the best technology institutes in India, the IITs.
Now, let's talk about the exams that come under JEE in detail
1) JEE Mains
JEE Mains is the first step towards IIT and the final step towards many other good colleges. Scoring well in JEE Mains can open doors to many topranked colleges as well, like the NITs, GFTIs, AKTU, etc.
JEE Mains consist of three papers: Paper 1 is for those who want to graduate with B.Tech, Paper 2 is for B.Arch, and Paper 3 is specifically for B.Planning. Paper 1 has been conducted four times a year since 2021, while the other two are conducted twice a year. The JEE Mains is a popular exam among intermediate science students as almost everyone wishes to try to get an education at the top institutes (i.e., IITs). But only a few get in.

JEE Mains Preparation Tips
When it comes to preparation, everyone has their unique style, and there is no set manner of preparation. Aspirants differ in terms of efficiency, stamina, grasping power, etc. So, a particular schedule for one might not help others. Students should thus plan and prepare according to their strengths and capabilities.
But there is a common approach that everyone should/can follow and build their preparation around, as outlined below:
 Start early: If you are serious about your academics and know exactly how much better your life can get if you get into that specific college, you should not wait for the right time to start your preparation. Start as early as possible, as this will help you cover most of the syllabus and revise it well.
 Know the syllabus and exam pattern: Know the syllabus and exam pattern: Start by checking out the exam pattern and studying it well, know all its aspects, and get comfortable with it. Check out the syllabus and write all your strengths and weaknesses on a piece of paper. List all the topics you find easy and difficult so that you can acknowledge them separately while starting your preparation.
Make sure you have the right books such as Problems in General Physics by I.E. Irodov, Understanding Physics by Freedman & Young, the chemistry books of P. Bahadur and J.D. Lee, mathematics books of R.D. Sharma, and S.L. Loney. You can consult with your coaching institute as well to identify the right resources.
 Make a schedule: After you know what’s ahead of you in terms of preparation, make an appropriate schedule and stick to it. Don’t forget to put extra hours into studying your weak topics. Don’t neglect the topics you know well, and keep brushing up. Set a weekly schedule and create todo lists on some digital device, so you get reminded of important tasks. Sticking to the deadlines in your schedule will boost your confidence when you finish studying the topics.
 Attempt JEE Mains previous year question papers: The best thing you can do is start attempting the JEE mains question papers of the previous years, as it will help you know the exam pattern better. You will also know the difficulty level of the questions you can expect. The previous five years’ papers are a must.
Try to attempt them like an actual exam with a timer. Once the timer goes off, calculate your score and see what you could have done better. Then, redo the same paper and see how many more questions you can solve now. Your scores will slowly start hitting excellent levels. There are various websites where you can download both JEE Main previous year's question papers and JEE Mains sample papers.
Attempt mock test for JEE Mains: Through mock tests, you can gain handson experience of an actual JEE Mains paper. Be sincere while giving your mock test; treat it like an actual exam. After giving your test, you should analyze it properly and see what you could have done better and then improve on it. With mocks, you can get accustomed to the actual exam day situation where you are sitting in front of the computer screen, and the timer is ticking. It will also help you handle pressure.

Preparation Tips for JEE Advanced
Preparation for JEE Advanced is quite similar to JEE Mains, but this time one should follow a comprehensive and deep learning approach. Below are a few tips to help you ace your preparation.
 Revise: Revision is the key to score in JEE Advanced. Students very often take prepared concepts for granted and don’t revise them. That’s a big mistake; one should keep brushing up on the concepts no matter how strong they get. This is important because sometimes, we often leave a topic and miss out on very obvious questions. If you are good at a topic, you should try attempting questions on it to become highly adept at it.
 Study deep: Students should follow a comprehensive approach in preparing for the JEE Advanced exam. Go deeper into the concepts and solve more and more numerical problems; get handy with concepts and face your fears. If you can’t tackle a question, make a note of it and clarify it with your mentor. Also, make notes for the questions that clarify a concept so you can revise it later.
 Solve JEE Advanced question papers: Solve previous years’ question papers and observe the pattern and types of questions. Try to get into the mindset of the paper setter. It might sound tricky but will come in handy with practice. The more questions you solve, the better you will get at knowing the thought process of the paper setter.
 Take mock tests: Solving mocks is a great way to get comfortable with the paper pattern; the more you practice and analyze mocks, the better your confidence and skills will be. Focus on quantity first; give as many mocks as you can. Once you get comfortable with the process and have got rid of your fears, focus on quality. Start focussing on scores and then analyze that mock 45 times.
JEE Advanced CutOff 2020
Here's the list for the JEE Advanced exam cutoff of 2020. You will get an idea of your goal percentage score to clear the examination.
Category  Min aggregate percentage marks  Min percentage marks per subject

ST  17.5  5 
SC  17.5  5 
GeneralEWS  31.5  9 
PwD (CRL)  17.5  5 
PwD (OBC)  17.5  5 
PwD (ST)  17.5  5 
PwD (SC)  17.5  5 
Both the exams are very important for B.Tech aspirants, and students should pay extra attention while preparing for them. The earlier you get clarity about your goals, the better it will be. Many students start preparing for these examinations from the 11th standard, and it’s a good thing. It does not just help them score better in their academics but also prepares them in advance for the JEE exam.
Thorough preparation is necessary to make the cutoff. If you think you have covered the syllabus, it’s time for revision. Now, revision can be painful for many students because they are not used to it. But, you can get better at it by practicing notes preparation on various topics and scheduling specific revision slots.
Last but not least, take care of your physical and mental health. You should start eating good food, as food affects our brain and body, in turn affecting our mood. Have a good exercise routine, and do some light workouts to stay fit. Working out will make you feel good about yourself and boost your confidence. Meditate for 510 minutes daily for mental agility and stability. Meditation improves focus and helps with deep learning.
So these were a few additional tips. In the end, it’s all about how you perform on DDay. These tools can aid you and prepare you well to take your JEE exam and give it your best shot. All the best!

Examples
Q1 .Find the area of a triangle with a base of 10 inches and a height of 50 inches.
Solution:
Let us find the area using the area of triangle formula:
Area of triangle = (1/2) × b × h
A = 1/2 × 10 × 50
A = 1/2 × 500
Therefore, the area of the triangle (A) = 250 in2
Q2. Find the area of a triangle with a base of 8 cm and a height of 12 cm
Solution:
Area of triangle = (1/2) × b × h
A = 1/2 × 8 × 12
A = 1/2 × 96
A = 48 cm2
Q3.We can calculate the area of an equilateral triangle using the area of triangle formula, Area of an equilateral triangle = (√3)/4 × side2
Solution:
where ‘a’ is the length of one equal side. On substituting the values, we get, Area of an equilateral triangle = (√3)/4 × 42
Answer= 6.29 cm2
