JEE Main Preparation – Topper's Review

Mridul Agarwal, the topper of JEE Main 2021 March session, talks about his JEE Main Preparation. He says owing to global pandemic COVID-19, he got more than expected time to prepare for the examination as due to lockdown, no one was allowed to go out. During lockdown, he attended online classes of the institute he was admitted to.  Thus, he had extra time to prepare for JEE Main Exam as he didn't have to waste his time by travelling to the coaching center and school. Mridul is a student of St. Xavier's School, Jaipur. Mridul will also be appearing in 12th class board (that have been postponed until further notice) exams this year.

He added, apart from his institute's study material, Mridul studied from NCERT books as well. He thoroughly studied NCERT Books while preparing for the exam. He even studied from the laboratory manual part and even found some questions in Chemistry section as well.

While talking about the books he referred to, he followed Physics Galaxy by Ashish Arora, Advanced Problems in Physical Chemistry by Neeraj Kumar, Elementary Problems in Organic Chemistry by M.S. Chouhan, Problems in Inorganic Chemistry for JEE (Main and Advance) by VK Jaiswal.

He also gave credits to NTA Abhyas App that has been launched by the National Testing Agency for JEE Main Aspirants to prepare for the exam by practicing mock tests available on it. He also solved previous year question papers of JEE Main Exam.

He has been now preparing for JEE Advanced Exam. He is focusing on questions-based preparation. He says:

“I am preparing through previous year questions, and for concepts and understanding, I am referring to books by foreign authors and online resources,”.
