  • Change of questions paper will not be accepted once the registration process is over.
  • Incorrect answers to some of the questions will result in a deduction of marks.


  • Focus: Your focus will decide your selection. It is better to understand the concept rather than just focusing on formulae. Through this process, one can know the entire method used to get to the formula. Hence, you will be able to memorize formulae easily.
  • Organize your time: Proper time management during preparation is important. Keep track of the time duration you take to solve questions. Also, allocating time subject-wise will help you attempt the JEE Advanced paper within the given time constraint. This will also help in exam simulation. The time allocation process plays as a game-changer during the exam. When you filter out the easy and difficult questions, you will be able to dedicate the decided time to solve a specific category of questions. It will save a lot of your time.
  • Keep taking breaks: Don’t burden or stress yourself out with a tight schedule. It is essential you take periodic breaks and avoid burnout. Talking to friends or spending some time to refresh yourself will help you relax and learn effectively.
  • Fulfill targets on a daily basis: Assign yourself some targets every day and try to complete those tasks by the end of the day. Ensure to include learning and revision in your daily study plan. This will boost your confidence and avoid time wastage.
  • Practice solving sample papers: After completing a chapter or any topic, try solving the previous 8- 10 years' papers at least of the topic. Through solving papers, you will be able to understand the transition in the paper pattern. You can try Mock test papers, sample papers to evaluate your preparation. Also, Motion offers the CPS feature for customized learning where you can solve sub-topic/topic-based questions. It will help you in formulating exam strategies and eliminating weaknesses.
  • Subject-wise planning: Select and cover topics of your preferences every day of different subjects. Don’t ignore any topic as your weak topic can be other students’ strength. Students must refer to the latest JEE Advanced syllabus for their systematic study plan.
  • Clarity in concepts: It is essential for students to have a clear foundation and thinking process. This will help students to implement the correct concept or method instantly after reading a question.
  • From basics to classics: It is advisable to start learning from the basics and then gradually move towards difficult topics. Directly switching to difficult problems can lead to bad performance as your concepts are not yet clear.
  • Numericals are crucial: To clear JEE Advance, students need to practice numerical problems a lot. Make sure you at least solve 40-50 numeric-based questions each day. With subjects like Maths, Physics, and Chemistry, there is no dearth of numerical problems. Motion brings you a huge question bank, with quality questions to test yourself and solutions to keep learning simultaneously.
  • Save your best for the last: many students tend to cover easy topics in the beginning and leave difficult ones for the last. But later on, they panic as they leave crucial sections. Therefore, it is best to first cover important topics and then switch to easier ones. Prepare proper notes and highlight topics you find difficult for the last time revision.
  • Discuss with your peers: Students can overcome their weaknesses through discussion with their mentors or fellow aspirants. Solve your doubts and interact with mentors or friends without hesitating for effective studies.

We have been collecting cutoff information from official sources for a long time and organized information in a way to make it easy for students to see where they stand the chance of getting admission. That also helped us to figure out what is student choice when it comes to choosing a place to study.

Cutoff shows students’ choice for the given institute and that also tells what kind of crowd is found around the class and campus. Most importantly it gives a statistically-based way to assess institutes. Being a computer science guy, I would prefer to make decisions based on data.

For ranking we considered cutoffs for 4 common departments, this also helps us to reduce bias and error in ranking. Included departments are Computer Science and Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Civil Engineering. We combined EE and EC as many IITs offer these courses in the same departments.

Based on this the IIT Ranking for the year 2019 is as follows.

Rank Institute State
1 Indian Institute of Technology Bombay Maharashtra
2 Indian Institute of Technology Delhi Delhi
3 Indian Institute of Technology Madras Tamil Nadu
4 Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur Uttar Pradesh
5 Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur West Bengal
6 Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee Uttarakhand
