A Readymade Time Table For IITJEE Aspirants



The time table given below is from the book Psychology in Success for IITJEE. The time table is made by Anuj Khare who was ranked AIR 39 in IITJEE 1996.The timetable is multipurpose and it can be used to prepare for any exam.

Please note that this is just a sample timetable and it can be modified to suit your needs. If you want to make some changes then go for it. But the main concept of the timetable should not change

The aim while following the above timetable should be to study for atleast 12 Hours.I know its not possible to study with 100% efficiency for 12 hours but atleast with 70% efficiency the actual number of hours spent on a day is 8.4 hours

Stick to the Plan:

Its easy to create a timetable but to stick to the plan is challenging. Make sure that you try to stick to the time table. Don’t postpone things for tomorrow as this will hamper you results.

So my work of posting the Time Table is done. Now its your turn to accomplish it.

Disclaimer: The basic idea of this post is to teach you how to prepare a timetable. It’s not that you must follow the time given. If you want then you can make the required changes. For e.g. If one likes to sleep early at 9:30 and get up soon in the morning then he/she can study the 9:30 to 12:30 portion in the morning from 4:00 to 7:00.

Sir ,

Your timetable is really good but i wanted to share something with you.I study at one of the best institution I believe to be or rather what the years of results has shown me and i score well there yet whenever I think of the greater scales I get afraid.I have tried to take advice from many but yet am afraid.and now in the middle of school days the laziness just started creeping over me and I am all alone.I want some strength.

# ImproveYourRank 2010-03-16 04:24
@ abc You need to set priorities. If you have decided on a chapter then finish that first and don't get distracted by the chapters that your group is going to study. Remember that there are 2 faces to studying in groups. One is that it is a very good iddea when exams are 7-8 months away and the other is that it is a very bad idea if exams are just a month or so away. Towards the end you need to study on your own or you will get thoroughly confused. Make sure you decide which topic is more important to the exams and set your priorities accordingly.
 
 
# sriyank 2010-03-11 01:02
i am following time table but i have a problem . every time a new chapter comes up for me to study when i am i between another chapter due to some reason like sir is going to start new chapter tomorrow in coaching or tution( so i try to study it beforehand) or like friends are calling me tomorrow for group studies for some another chapter which i have not revised yet . so i leave my current chapter and start studying that new chapter this leads to total mess and neither of topics gets completed ever ..help

@ shweta agrawal

hmm...shweta..dont consider preboards as a disaster...u can ofcourse..prepa re for boards and jee at the same time.
try this....whenver u solve any problem of 12th std...do it in SUBJECTIVE METHOD...solve it in such a way that u are solving a board problem..this will prepare u for JEE as well as ur boards..as in boards u have to solve everything in subjective...

and u can try studying...afte r coaching...ie.. .from 9.00 to 12.00...try night outs or wake up early in the morning...hope it helps
 
 
# Manish Singh 2009-11-16 18:43
@huh

dude..u need to be more focussed and determined if u want to conquer jee...u must understand now that it now or never...this time will never come again....consid er jee as a good time in ur life...and so try to acheive it...suppose of u work hard and still u are not able to crack jee then u shud not feel sad...ATLEASE U HAVE TRIED>...butt if u are just sleeping the whole day..and doing noting...and finally not clearing jee..then u can understand how u will feel...

so buddy buck up and forget everything for 5 months...and follow the timetable which is given above stricly...or u can modify it..suiting ur needs

# huh... 2009-11-12 14:18
heyy i have a gr8 problem here ! i evryday make a plan but it all goes in vain! i have tried both late nite studies n early morning one! but both r getting too problamatic! when i get up early in the morning i can't study for more than 1 and a half hour,n then after studying for that time i need to sleep again for atleast half an hour.but this isnot possible as i need to also attend school.and further i try to have night out plans but suddly after studying a liltle i feel very sleepy.....hehe and then i plan again to get up early in morning to study! and as you can see atlast it ends up without any output...and then i feel so depressed...my portion gets piled up..i m more stressed! so please please do help me if possible.....an d please tell me how to have a plan for even the chapters i need to revise and the chpaters which have been piled up...help....:c ry:
 
 
# Content Team 2009-11-10 11:22
thats ofcourse natural...tell me if u can recall ABCD...if yes..then the reason for whihc u are not able to recall the portion studied in 2 days..is that u didnt revise...
if u study that part again and again then u will..understan d the concepts...of it and u will never forget it...and ofcourse revision plays an imporatant role if one has to remember the 90 chapters of IITJEE for 2 years:-)
 
 
# Aditya 2009-11-09 15:20

how can i help..??
plzz help me...m scard..:cry:
 
 
# Content Team 2009-11-03 18:39
@mharsh...for those goin in tutorials...nee d to cut out their time from the timetable and setup it again...u can try to edit the timetable urself....and add the coaching time tooo..
 
 
# Content Team 2009-11-03 18:38
@niharika.....E veryone has different styles of studying and different patterns of sleep...some of them can study late night while some in the early morning....u can do both thats for sure..
IF u can do night study then great...study at night and get up at the normal time in the morning...for eg...if u sleepat 2 Am everyday then get up at 8 Am...but dont get up a 6....as u require some amt of sleep
 
 
# Content Team 2009-11-03 18:35
@VENKAT ... Its staight and simple...if u are feeling sleepy u wont be able to study.So try to study in day time and dont keep it for late night..and sleep atlest 6 hours minimum

@ zzz...u can edit the timetable urself...if u have taken coaching....my main idea of postin this Timetable was to teach u how to prepare a time table.So using the same technique prepare one for urs...and if possible share it in the comment thread. :-)
