The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are an elite group of seven autonomous engineering and technology oriented institutes of higher education. They are established and declared as Institutes of National Importance by the Government of India.
In order of establishment, the seven IITs are located at Kharagpur, Mumbai (Bombay), Chennai (Madras), Kanpur, Delhi, Guwahati, and Roorkee.
IITs conduct a Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) every year for the admission to its
B.Tech. and other courses offered at various IITs, IT-BHU Varanasi and ISM Dhanbad. Preparing for the IIT-JEE requires determination, devotion, perseverance and above all guidance.
We talked to Vivek Jhunjhunwala, a student of 2007 batch of Resonance, to delve his success secrets in IIT-JEE 2007.
Q. What is required to get into IIT?
Ans. Strong will power, dedication, determination to win, focusing on the goal and lots of hard work is required to get into IIT .
Q. How much time did you devote on an average for your preparation?
Ans. Usually I used to devote 8-9 hours including classes.
Q. What are the important topics for special attention?
Ans. All topics of all the three subjects are equally important; a vague idea can be gained by looking at the old JEE papers.
Q. How does one cope up with the school syllabus and preparation for the IIT-JEE? Did you take extra efforts to prepare for board examination?
Ans. If one has covered the syllabus of
IIT-JEE, it will be quite easy to cover up the remaining portion, but of course one has to take extra efforts to cover up that portion which is not included in the IIT-JEE syllabus. It can be easily done during the exams itself.
Q. How many questions one should attempt to get into IIT? How tough would be the paper?
Ans. One cannot decide before examination that how many questions he/she is going to attempt. It is totally depends on the toughness of the paper and the strategy that one applies during that crucial time of examination. As we have seen that in the year 2007 the toughness level of IIT-JEE was greatly reduced so one can expect relatively easier paper than what used to come earlier.
Q. How important is emotional quotient in preparation for IIT-JEE. Please explain?
Ans. One has to be emotionally strong during preparations as well as at the time of examination because it is highly essential that the person should be able to answer everything that he had learnt. Anxiety or nervousness in such critical time will surely affect the results and to overcome such situations one had to build up enough confidence.
Q. Give some tips for increasing one’s productivity while studying?
Ans. Always sleep well, eats well and be cool and composed. Do not overburden yourself with unwanted tension, and when you are not studying try to remain calm.
Q. How did you refresh yourself from the hectic schedule?
Ans. At the beginning I used to watch movies and listen songs, but later on I avoided this habit because whenever I used to study thereafter, I could not properly concentrate on my studies. So the best option would be playing some games. It will surely refresh you.
Q. To whom you want to give the credit of your achievement? To what extent do you think your family had contributed in your success?
Ans. I want to give the credit to my parents, my siblings Hemant and Sonia, my friends, Resonance and also to myself. My family had a great contribution in my success. Whenever I lost focus, I always found my family to support me, they were my backbone, without them I could have no way to achieve my goal.
Q. What is your Success mantra?
Ans. Always keep yourself up-to-date with what teachers have been taught in the classes. Revise all the three subjects and DPPs at the same day, and never lose focus.
Q. Give some advice to your successors at Resonance who are preparing for
Ans. One piece of advice I will certainly give is that keep faith in the institute, don’t try to point out what is not taught here. The best will be you learn sincerely what is taught and the best results will await you.
