How to Prepare for JEE AAT 2020? Boost your Score with Expert’s Tips

To score higher in JEE Advanced AAT 2020, you need not be perfect at drawing aesthetically pleasing figures. You need to focus on attempting more & more questions with higher accuracy. To achieve this, you can follow these tips:

 Draw loose lines & practice to position your hands perfectly. Guide your drawing with pencil/ pen firmly & gently.

 To draw geometrical shapes, you need to start with a 6H pencil, as it doesn’t smudge & remains sharp for longer. Apart from this, compass & straight edge are the most used geometric tools in JEE Advanced AAT test.

 Real-time 3D perception & grasping planning is not easy. Prior knowledge of three-dimensional perception in your brain for similar shapes & scenarios can give you a tick. Try practising as many 3D figures as you can while preparing for JEE AAT 2020.

 Imagination & aesthetic sensitivity is a relatively easier topic. It is recommended to read the basic terminology in advance to understand this section in & out.

 After learning all these drawing & sketching techniques, you need some lessons to understand national & international ancient monuments & famous structures. The Architectural awareness section is all about this.
