To know how to prepare for IIT or PMT(or any other medical or engineering entrance ) read the following carefully.

AUTHOR-J.P.Sinha.Teacher for IIT-JEE/PMT

In India,the moment a student passes out of 10th std., and takes science in 11th/12th he/she all of a sudden receives a big shock.The way different subjects are developed in 10th are so different from that in 11th that many of them get totally overwhelmed.But after one or two months most students get used to the new syllabus.Even then the preparation of IIT/PMT seems impossible to many.Different people respond differently to this seemingly tough situation.But my experience as a teacher ( I have been teaching PHYSICS/MATHS to 11th/12th students of science in Delhi as home tutor for the last several years!) says that there is no need to panic at all.

A student should divide the work of IIT/PMT preparation into two stages.


Initially students should simply concentrate on their basic NCERT syllabus. NCERT books are very good for basic concept building.They are also not very lengthy.So one can easily finish the entire 11th 12th syllabus in six months if one is sincere.During this stage, while they are studing NCERT texts, students should practice MCQ problem solving from any popular private publication books e.g. Pradeep,Dinesh etc.For really speedy completion of syllabus according to this plan, personal home tuition may be taken in each subject.In this way, within the first six-seven months of 11th class, the entire 2 syllabus will be completed at the basic level along with some good amount of problem solving practice for the students.I would also like to emphasise that students should also make it their habbit to keep revising what they have already studied at regular intervals(say,on weekly basis).

Many students take admission in big coachings in the beginning of the class 11th .Most such students never get selected in any IIT/PMT institution.Why?!.... Very simple!. In these coachings, in the name of advanced preparation, blind problem solving is promoted.There, basic concepts are not taught properly, and just formulae are discussed as part of theory teaching.Then right away, very tough questions are introduced to be solved.These questions generally pass over the head of most students.The teacher solves those questions in the class or sometimes students are given printed solutions of the assingments from their institute.Students try to learn those solutions without learning the art that "How to solve a new question by applying systemetic thiking to it with the help of basic concepts?"
