JEE has always been a prestigious examination and we have seen student fighting to get into to the IIT with a good rank over the years. What reall makes it a difficult examination is the level of Numericals being asked in the examination. It also is true that IIT examination has always been focusing right on the basic foundation of the student and is not limited to only ask formulas in the examination. From JEE rankers to IIT alumni, most people agree that early starters get an advantage in JEE. The biggest reason being in time. The more time you get before your JEE exam, the better.
JEE is a complex examination. The questions asked are not isolated to a single chapter. You must use your very basic concepts to solve various types of questions. Moreover, due to intense competition, the number of candidates securing the same marks has been increasing.
Advantages of Starting in 9th and 10th for IIT JEE
You learn to respect and manage time very early. By the time you start with JEE preparation (the final 2 years), you are already in that habit of managing things.
2) Routin :
Going to coaching, coming back home , doing your homework, managing school related things, etc. All this become a part of your routine and hence easier in the later stages of studies.
You see, the best buildings created are those ones who have the strongest foundation because it takes a lot of effort and power to make them fall. When you start preparing in class 9th or 10th, you are always a few steps ahead of most of your companions. I remember that we were taught a lot about geometry, algebra, vectors, thermodynamics (very basic) during that time and all that helped in some or the other way in last two years.
I think this is one of the most important and biggest factor why one should start off preparing so early. It’s very important to realise that life is not going to be spoon feeding always. If you really want to make a mark, you need to get out of your comfort zone and act accordingly. At such a young age, when most don’t even know full form of IIT (yeah, it’s true), if you are able to make such a decision then go with it and are able to realise this main thing I am talking about, it’s just not good for preparation of JEE but for preparation of life as a whole.
