Hello mam, I passed eleven just a few months ago with good marks, but the problem is that I am not that much prepared for jee exams and most of my friends are in akash and fiitjee but my parents hardly have any faith on them and believes that hard work is the key to success, but I cannot study more than 7-8 hours a day. I am confident about my boards but I lack confidence in jee. So mam can u say that is it possible to crack jee with good marks keeping in mind the above conditions within 10 months and without joining akash and fiitjee.
First of all have a believe on yourself that you can do it. There is nothing which is imposible. Just work out on basics and have crystal clear concepts also do lots of practice on their application part. You can also discuss anything thing related to any topic online be clear throuthout. Arrange a good material of any of the reputiated coaching class and start working on it. Content is same everywhere but variety of questions and their order varies. Try to do different types of questions as much as you can to clear the concept.

I think 10 months is plenty to prepare for IIT JEE and other exams. I would like to tell you, that I myself prepared for the JEE exam only after entering class XII.
But yes, I had joined FIIT JEE to prepare for the exams. I would suggest that you tell your parents that even if they have no faith in these institutes, please purchase their distance learning packages, as they are extremely useful and have a great compilation of questions which will be excellent for practicing and preparing for the exams.
7-8 hours of studies in a day is plenty for now, though later you will have to increase the number of hours.
I would also suggest that because you aren't joining coaching classes in any institute, you take online tuition classes. They save commuting time and can be taken at your convenience while sitting at home. And keep in mind, I am not suggesting this from a business point of view. I think some guidance is necessary while preparing for IIT JEE, so that all your doubts and concepts are crystal clear, which is a must for these exams. So please contact spanedea.com (If you want to take classes from me personally, tell them you want Kshitij Rai).
It is definitely possible. And 7-8 hours a day are sufficient if you study sincerely. Actually it is more than sufficient. Since yous parents are against joining any coaching Online or Offline, I wont force you to join one but make sure you cover up all the topics and are at the same level with your friends. I would recommend you to solve their question banks and exams so that you dont miss anything. Just stay focussed keeping your goal in mind.
Being an IIT'an myself, I firmly believe that it is your practice and hardwork which can let you into IIT. Joining a coaching institute is not necessary, but getting right quality of teaching which helps in understanding the concept and clearing a doubt is important. You should believe in yourself that whatever you are practising is up to the mark. The syllabus for boards and JEE is almost similar. Just study the concept and practice lots of questions from the topic. I am sure, if you devote 70% of your study time in practising the questions, your chances of getting into IIT increases.

Hard work definitely is , but I would say smart work is the key to jee. Your parents have more faith in you than on a coaching centre which means you are a bright kid by nature, cheer up ! There's nothing to feel low about, we still have time and you can work it out for sure.
Let us see this in two steps, getting to a level of conceptual clarity and solving problems hand in hand. As you are very keen about self-study, grab some good books which serve both our purposes. Arihant's series offers chapterwise textbooks for jee mains and advanced, they are good for maths and physics. (For eg-http://www.arihantbooks.com/bookdetails/8/9789352031535/A-Textbook-of-ALGEBRA-for--JEE-Main-@-Advanced, you can find similarly for other topics). For chemistry , you can refer to my article here. Having a tutor to clear off your doubts will prevent waste of time pondering over a single thing or to guide you from time to time on how to go about.
As of now, you can start studying chaperwise and topicwise, solve the easy - moderate problems. Don't go for the tuff ones now(or the advanced level), once you are done and still there is time remaining, you can look at others. Keep doing the subjects in parallel, like say you are studying for 4 hours, try to do atleast 2 subjects then. Regular touch with all the 3 are important.
According to me, more than getting enrolled in any coaching institute online or offline, it is important for you to be confident about the concepts and questions. If it is that you will start preparing now, then I think the coaching would provide you guidance and help you go along the path. Writing exam without much preparation doesn't help because it is a tough competition. And you have only limited attempts. So, you have to figure out a way for preparing yourself either by self study or with the help of coaching online or offline. But make sure you are well prepared and confident about writing the exam.

Congratulations for scoring well in XI.
Yes your parents are very correct hard work is the key to success, however to crack IIT JEE proper guidance is also of utmost importance.The main difference between JEE and boards is the question difficulty and the type of questions. If you are covering all the topics well and practicing the JEE questions then you can clear JEE.
7-8 hrs regular sincere study is good. You still have a fair chance cracking JEE. If you can extend beyond it better.
Now its up to you if you are able to solve JEE questions without much difficulty, clarify your doubts with friends and teachers and you are abe to develop confidence dont join a coaching otherwise you should. Later you should not regret.
However a good test series must be enrolled. It helps you to find your weak and strong points which is very useul for the examination.
Partly what your parents have said that hard work is the key to success is correct, but it is not completely true. For JEE preparation everyone needs some guidance as well as the peer group to compete with. Without peer group and good guidance how are you going to solve your difficulties as well as find out where you stand in comparision to others. So I would request your parents to consider this aspect and at least give you some environment where you can analyse yourself with respect to other student. Now joing which coaching class is individual's personal choice.
