How to Prepare for IITJEE in 6 Months -A Stepwise Master Plan

The bad news is that the time flies, the good news is that you are the pilot ....

My previous article was How to prepare for IITJEE In 6 Months. That article just gave the books to study and it wasn’t so elaborate and many of them in forums, mails are asking about how to study in these 6 months. Here i present you the perfect plan to crack IITJEE in 6 months.

Which Books to be studied?

The books below are all IITians general suggession.But if you think the book is not suiting your need then feel free to change it. But the most recommended are these


  • NCERT Physics
  • HC Verma (That’s  the best book available for physics)
  • Arihant by DC Pandey


  • NCERT (Dont miss this one)
  • Physical - P Bahadur
  • Organic -Arihant
  • Inorganic - P.Bahadur/OP Tandon

Besides this you do from your coaching institute material (prefer Brilliant tutorials material).At final revise YG File (if u have), last year IIT problems or Arihant new pattern. Then take test series (take Brilliant Tutorials not FIIT JEE seriously as it is beyond JEE level and de-motivates you a lot


  • ML Khanna or RD Sharma

Many people think ML Khanna sucks lot of time but according to me it clears the basics and also key to solve different kinds of probs. But don’t look at solutions before giving a try.Even RD Sharma works, but I suggest ML Khanna

  • Coaching maths questions
  • Arihant series in Maths

if time permits TMH Mathematics

A Readymade Plan for all...

Here comes the study plan for those who have not yet started JEE preparation till now .This Plan is for 6 months. Make sure you follow it sincerely


Physics – electrostatics, capacitors, electric current, Magnetics

Chemistry – Nomenclature, isomerism, GOC, Hydrocarbons

Maths – functions, limits, continuity and differentiability


Physics – Electromagnetic Induction, Modern Physics

Chemistry – Aldehydes and Ketones, Alcohols and Ethers, Amines

Maths – Application of derivatives, integration        


Physics – Optics, Mechanics

Chemistry – States of Matter, Thermodynamics, Electrochemistry, Equilibrium

Maths – Straight lines, circles, parabola, Properties of triangle


Physics – Properties of matter, SHM, waves

Chemistry – S, P, D block and transition elements

Maths – Complex Numbers, Quadratic Equations, Probability, Determinants


For your boards’ preparation


As soon as your exams get over, collect all the test papers (your institute’s) and last year IIT problems of above chaps


Revise thoroughly your Notes and don’t read anything new. Don’t read anything 4 days before the big day to relieve you from tension. Be confident and cool

For 12th Pass:

Read thermodynamics, Mechanics, Vectors &3D Geometry, Differential Equations, Solutions, Carbohydrates in February and March.

But I suggest trying problems on the chapters you know than studying new chapters.

This plan is very possible if you study hard with full dedication and determination.

Can’t you lose your enjoyment for 6 months for a good life ?

I can lose my enjoyment atleast for 6 months. I advice to all the aspirants of IIT who right now are in 11th class that, if you follow the given schedule honestly then you will have about 18 months extra time for the revison. Try it ones

@ Raunknandan

Go for IIT JEE work hard for AIEEE as well. AIEEE is bit less competitive to IIT JEE, so chances remain better to get a good college. You are a good student so need not to worry, if you have filled up the application forms this year then go for the tests otherwise work hard for next year.

Generally, The Coaching institutes are better option as these provide you a strict time table, competition and study material including mock tests, Anyhow it completely depends upon you if you feel comfortable with individual teachers.

You have done with your 12th Board exam, so start revising topics of 11th, go through the basic concepts and NCERT that will boost your basic knowledge and will help you in getting understood the further things.

All the best.
# raunaknandan 2011-03-25 11:41
sir , i have just given my 12th boards....i havent prepared for iit jee yet...i know i wont be able to clear the jee this i am planning to drop this year and appear for iitjeee 2012.....what i am confused about is that whether i should prepare for aieee or i should preapare for iit? i am a pretty good student as far as cbse level is concerned and hope to get 85&#xor; above in boards.....i am facing problems in phy portion (of 11th class) and i m good at chem and maths for the cbse level....and one more doubt is that whether i should take classes from teachers who teach individually or should i get enrolled in any jee preparing institute? in my city there are several good individual teachers but u cant get the bunch of good teachers (for pcm) in any institute? plzz reply via mail.......wait ing ankss....!!!

# sudeep 2009-12-20 11:08
I like this study plan but still i have a problem.
There are lot of questions in all above suggested books. So i am confused about that what should i study , i mean how many questions should i solve from each book. Because even if i endeavour to solve maximum questions , it'll consume a lot of time that i don't have.
so can you please suggest me something ?
# Content Team 2009-11-14 16:49

there are almost 5 months left for JEE and ur plan shud be to utilise the 5 months to the fullest.

and about the timetable...i have already listed the plan for a student who is preparing for JEE in 6 months...and if u are starting from nevember onwards then u can adjust the october schedule somehow by keeping 2 hours extra for it..

ok then if u are free the whole day and night...let me tell u how ur day shud look like

First of all dont neglect ur boards...they are very important...giv e equal importance to all the 3 subjects and board exam,,, 10 hours for JEE and 3 hours for Boards...

in those 10 hours for JEE ...3 hours for PCM each..and remaining 1 hour..for reviion of the while day whatever u have done in that day...and revising formulaes..stuff...
and 3 hours for the baord stuff...try to study all the subjects in those 3 hours if possible ...or u can do 45 min each for Physics,chem and maths...and rest...subjects adjust them in the remaining time...if u want more time for the subjects like English and others...then add 1 hour extra..f u have budget...

If u want to study more that 13 hours a day...then u can adjust urself....its ur choice...but try to study minimum 10 hours for JEE...if u want to get a good rank...
the plan is quite hectic but u must think that its a do or die situation ...and follow this for 5 months..and see urself in IIT next year :-)
# santee 2009-11-14 09:29
i just wannna tell u dat i hv already appeared for iit in 2009 but i couldn't make it and also i get 59.6% marks in my board i will retake d exams n will appear for iit 2010 as well . i took 2 year coaching at fiitjee as well.but due 2 some family circumstances i was off study till i m 100% free the whole day n nite. but my present situation is like dat i didn't study the previous months and now i hv 2 prepare for boards as well as iit now onwards .can u plzzzzzzzzzzz suggest a suitable plan or timetable so that i can give my best output by putting lot of efforts by keeping ur plan in mind and be srict to follow dat.

chapterwise after reading the theory
do you think it will work????
please reply soon....
# Content Team 2009-11-01 06:01
@devika ....i am posting an article...on Time table for JEE...check that soon
@Mukunkrishna.....I cant say it will be enough...but NCERT inorganic is a must...and if u want to crack jee then u have to understand that nothing is enough for till the D day..try to complete as much as possible..

# Dhruvin 2009-10-24 13:16
can anyone plz give me the direct link to the article to "can't concentrate on studies" i'm unable to find it plz thank you.
# Content Team 2009-10-24 11:47
@mansi... hi

Its natural to find TMH difficult since its truly difficult
DOnt get disheartened if u are not able to solve the problems from TMH.
what u can do is continue with das gupta and solve the same problems 3 times...i mean repeat the book 3 times.
This will enhance ur problem solving skils and later jump over to The BAAP of IITJEE books the TMH mathematics
# mansi 2009-10-24 07:15
hey thnx fr dis
bt i hv a prob
in maths i easily do a das gupta and arihant bt find tmh quite tough can u plz suggest me somethng so dat i cud master up in maths

11th portion is also included in the article sakshi...the 12th portion is kept forst since they are easy as compared to 11th portion ....Only higher weightage chapters are considered since there is less time left for JEE
