Study process during JEE Mains, Advanced, NEET Preparation

Difference between those who do well & those who don’t

When I compare students who do well in their IIT JEE / NEET Preparation & who don’t do that well in these exams, the key difference is following a consistent ‘Study Process’ that works.

Successful students knowingly or un-knowingly follow the right ‘Study Process’ consistently for all chapters. While students who struggle keep switching between one method to another to third. This shuffling leads to waste of time, brings un-clarity & in-decisiveness during preparation journey.

In this blog, I will walk you through the ’Study Process’ during JEE Mains, Advanced, NEET & AIIMS preparation that works.

Working means that if you apply this process consistently for all chapters, your concepts will become strong, your problem solving skills will improve & your mock exam scores & rank will go up.

The study process is as follows:

Study Process


Bubbles show the different theory sources available to you. They are : 

  1. Coaching Notes
  2. Coaching Modules
  3. Reference Books
  4. Video Lectures 

It’s best to shortlist at-most 2 of the above sources for each of the chapter, study them thoroughly & then create ‘Master Notes’ out of it. The reason it is important to create notes once again inspite of having coaching notes is because it improves your understanding & sharpens your memory. I call these notes as ‘Master Notes’ because they are created in such a way that whenever you need to revise a particular chapter in future, you will only follow these master notes for theory.


Solved examples are very relevant questions that you get from following sources: 

  • You are made to do them in coaching
  • Coaching Modules
  • Reference Books
  • Video Lectures

Even though they are Solved Examples but you should first try to do them by yourself. It is because only the questions that you are able to do by yourself at home, you are able to do them in exams. If you directly look at solution or ask your teacher / friend & don’t try that question again, very rarely you are able to solve that in exams. Once you are done with solved examples, see whether 80% or more were you able to do yourself or not. If yes, move to Level 1 questions. If no, revisit ‘Master Notes’ again before moving to Level 1 questions.


These are simple questions that involve direct application of concepts. If there are say 100 questions in this exercise, then again 80% or more you should be able to do by yourself in 3 tries. If it is so, clear doubts & move to Level 2 questions, else read ‘Master Notes’ again, clear your doubts & then move to Level 2 questions. 


These are JEE Mains Level Questions if you are preparing for JEE or NEET level questions. Again if you have understood the concepts well, did solved examples & Level 1 exercise thoroughly, you should be able to solve 80% questions of this exercise by yourself in 3 tries. If not, read ‘Master Notes’ again, clear doubts & move to Level 3. 


These are JEE Advanced Level Questions if you are preparing for JEE or NEET & AIIMs level questions. The same 80% rule applies here as well.

I have come up with this 80% rule upon talking to & working with a lot of students on 1 to 1 basis during their IIT JEE / NEET Preparation. If you have any comments or want to know more about it, you can set up a free 30 min call with me by clicking Here.
