    • See yoou are studying in KV YELAHANKA . So yoou can never clear IIT unless you study some 9-10 thick books of science atleast having 800-900 pages each. It’s very hard work. I studied 14hours a day for clearing IIT with a rank of AIR-211 last year.. So. get on your job..Leave friends, Dosti and all……. Just study study and study….

      • give me a break……i never tried too hard for an iit like you , but im now in iit mumbai..air 93 [2010 batch] i have enjoyed my prepration…so what i say you is dont give puny suggestions to the youngsters
