IIT-JEE Exam is considered as the most challenging engineering entrance examination all over the world. Cracking IIT JEE requires meticulous planning, dedicated preparation and concentrated study. Parents and students consider joining IIT-JEE coaching classes, which is the need of the hour to excel. But when is the right time to join a coaching class? Let’s take a look at the options.
Starting from Class 9
At this stage, students have plenty of time as the school syllabus is not vast. A serious aspirant should focus on developing key skills such as conceptual clarity, agile & accurate problem solving ability, analytical & logical reasoning, & discipline & time management. Nurturing these skills at this stage will benefit the student as it forms a systematic study routine. An exposure to competitive exams like NTSE, NSTSE and Olympiads will certainly give them an extra edge.
Starting from Class 11
Better late than never. Starting your preparation from Class 11 gives you 2 full years of time to master the entire syllabus in a stress-free manner. A rigorous IIT-JEE preparation will certainly enhance the Class XI & XII Board exam results too
Starting from Class 12
This is not highly recommended since almost 50% of the JEE Exam syllabus are Class 11 topics. With the additional pressure of Class XII Board exams, the student may find it hard to devote time for JEE Preparation
We believe that starting preparation from class 9 is a good way to introduce students to the subject matter without overwhelming them - there is ample time to study and excel.
