As for my weak areas, I made sure to work extra hard on them. To do this, I maintained a separate register for the same. I made a list of the topics which were my weak areas and made a small summary of each. I would go through each of them regularly. As time went by, they became my strong areas too.”


For AIR 2 Ramneek Kaur Mahal, it was all about getting the stronghold on NCERT books and solving mock tests while for AIR 4 Manraj Singh Sra studying 8-10 hours was a must. In his interview with Careers360 Manraj said, “Preparation cannot be considered complete if one does not spend ample time indulging in self-study.” He further added, “The best part of my preparation was solving past years’ IIT papers; it helped me smoothly secure the obtained scores. Last few months, I closely followed the newspaper to keep myself updated.”
