How can I increase my paper-solving speed for JEE Main 2020?

Learn to reduce human error and increase your paper-solving speed in JEE 2020.

You have decided to pursue a career in Engineering and want to achieve success at any cost. However, you need to start preparing right from today or even right now if you’re yet lagging behind. As an aspirant of JEE Main 2020, you will only be able to achieve success when you start referring to reliable notes and dedicate at least 60% of your crucial time to practising mock tests.


In recent years, we have seen a 30% rise in the cases where students are unable to clear the JEE Main examination because of their paper-solving speed. And the figures are disheartening because despite preparing well for this examination, students are unable to clear IIT-JEE.


Let’s take a look at how you can increase your paper-solving speed for JEE Main 2020.

Attempt questions in which you are confident first

As you are aware, JEE is conducted by NTA (National Testing Agency). NTA tests and exams have a difficulty level which is quite high. The most challenging part of JEE is that every option seems like a correct answer. Hence, students actually get confused and waste a lot of time. So, it is advisable to attempt only those questions in which you are confident enough.

Keep in mind that there is negative marking

Sometimes, students are confident enough that they will easily clear JEE, but they are still unable to clear the exam. You too may get shocked at your marks and you will keep blaming yourself or your luck. Stop here! The major reason for not clearing JEE is that most forget to understand that IIT-JEE has negative marking too. This might even lead you towards the path of failure despite attempting the full paper.

Practise regularly

If you want to clear your examination and score high marks, the first thing you need to do is to develop a habit of practising mock tests and previous years’ papers regularly. This will help you gain confidence to attempt any challenging question asked in the examination.

Always learn the fundamentals

When you attempt the JEE paper, you might be aware that all the questions asked in the examination are quite confusing. For each question, you might sometimes think like there is a dual answer, but perhaps it actually challenges your intellectual capabilities. So, you need to take weekly tests to learn the fundamentals of those concepts in order to understand to solve the complex questions.

Complete the paper 15 minutes before

The most common mistake students make is that they consume a lot of time in the initial part of the paper. If you want to achieve success in JEE, you need to complete the entire paper 15 minutes before and spend the last few minutes to glance through the entire paper and check for errors if any.

Follow these tips for you to reduce your errors and increase your paper-solving speed. Since JEE Main 2020 has been postponed, there is more time for students to prepare. TopperLearning has decided to offer the JEE Cracker 2020 package for Rs 499 only! This package has everything—from study materials to assessment questions—to help students gauge their performance and to familiarise themselves with the exam paper pattern.
