How to Prepare for OJEE 2021?

Preparations for OJEE 2021 can be formulated into the following strategies:

  • Coaching: This is a method where you can go to a coaching centre to have a better understanding of the OJEE exam and also you can get a better demonstration and practical knowledge about how to crack the OJEE 2021 exam.
  • Self-Preparation: This is a strategy where you try your best at beating the exam alone. Students prefer coaching centres because those centres provide a schedule and resources to prepare for an exam, and in turn, you have to pay for those things. But if you have discipline and determination you could create your schedule and frame your resources without paying to any of the coaching centres.
  • Scavenge Resources: There is a famous quote "A good sculptor cannot sculpt even a small statue without his tools". This same concept goes with the preparation of OJEE. You need to have all possible materials that would help you understand and practice questions from the exam point of view. Materials for OJEE include reference books, sample question papers, educational videos, and other stuff. If you can secure all of the exam materials at the start you would know what all things you have to go through over a specific period you have allotted to yourself.
  • Time Management: Time management means that you need to create a custom timetable that fits your daily schedule. If you have secured all of the materials, you need to integrate those materials into the proper schedule. Make sure to allocate appropriate time to each of the exam subjects, less time to the parts you are good at, and more time to parts that you are not so good at. But just creating a timetable for sake of creating a schedule is of no use if you don't stick to it until you achieve your goal. So you need to make sure that you are strictly adhering to your schedule.
