1. Prepare a time table for the remaining exam days before JEE Main 2021 paper. Include a regular testing system.
2. Include all chapters of each subject in the timetable. If a topic is difficult, do not ignore it. Revise the fundamentals of each chapter.
3. Revise the NCERT textbook thoroughly because as observed in the February session, some questions were asked directly from NCERT.
4. Practice previous years’ papers and try to solve chapter-wise papers of IIT JEE. While doing this, try to observe how the same concepts are asked in different ways.
5. If you find that you are weak in a particular topic, do not leave it. Go through its fundamental concepts and formulae. This will enable you to solve some problems from these topics if not all.
6. Analyse past mistakes: Those who appeared for JEE Main exam in February must analyse where things went wrong. Work on your weak areas.
How to prepare for Physics in JEE Main?
1. Students currently in class 12 should cover the entire syllabus of classes 11 and 12 from a conceptual textbook like Concepts of Physics by HC Verma.
2. For class 12 syllabus, you must focus entirely on NCERTs and previous years’ papers. Students must write the derivations again and again to memorize them.
3. The fastest way to solve a Physics question is to read the question carefully and find out what should be the unit of the answer. Check the options with correct units and then, work on them.
4. Most Optics related questions have only one-step solutions. Compare options with the given question and you can easily see which one would be the correct choice.
5. Electricity-related questions are property-based. Read them carefully and you will find out that only one or at the most two options satisfy the property in question. It will help you to get to the correct answer quickly.
6. Make proper notes of every concept for revision
7. Appear previous year questions and February session questions to have a brief idea of where you stand
8. You can follow online learning classes for doubts
9. Try to solve the questions with a time frame
10. Focus more on your weak areas now, and brush up your strong areas.
11. Following are the topics to be covered by students, that are- Modern Physics, Kinematics, Thermodynamics, Wave and Ray Optics, Gravitation, Current Electricity, AC circuits.
How to prepare Chemistry in JEE Main?
1. Make the habit of preparing your own notes. That will be easily understood by you. Generally, prepare 2 notes, one is for the theoretical concept and other is for writing formulae if you’re solving the numerical question.
2. Revision is a must. The more you revise the topics, the more control you’ll have on the subject.
3. Speed and accuracy in JEE Main are very essential for scoring well. No matter with what speed you attempt, accuracy is more crucial. When time is just 30 minutes, you have to have speed and accuracy.
4. Focus on topics which are most relevant in the examination context or you’ll get more questions. So you’ll have to go through the syllabus thoroughly.
5. Revise the previous year questions. That will give you thorough insight.
6. You need to have a clear understanding of the concepts, application skills and concentrate on completing the syllabus before the switch over to something new.
Students currently in class 12th should make short notes of class 11 chapters from both the books of NCERT. Start giving more emphasis on a numerical solving approach.
For students who are preparing for JEE Main, reading these topics from NCERT books is a must:
1. Gaseous state
2. Chemical kinetics
3. General Organic chemistry
4. Ores and metallurgy
5. Reactions of Benzene
6. Qualitative analysis
How to prepare Mathematics for JEE Main?
1. An average of 25-30% of questions is from previous years' papers making practice very essential. Attempt two mock tests every week before you finally appear for JEE. These mocks tests would clear your concept and also aid in identifying your strengths and weaknesses.
2. Around 7-10 questions in JEE are from NCERT and include these topics: Probability, Vector 3D, ITF, Continuity and Differentiability, Area under Curve. Therefore, you can prioritize these chapters with maximum weight in JEE Main, while revising for the boards.
3. In the Integration problems, just differentiate the given options and find the correct one and finalize. In the differentiation problems, integrate the given options and find out the most suitable answer.
4. In Algebra, most of the questions are property-based. Almost 99% of options with anomaly are the correct answers.
5. In Quadratic Equations, 90% questions are properties of alpha, beta, and gamma where you have to find the sum of roots or the product of roots.
6. In Complex Numbers, read the question carefully to find out if the answer would be an imaginary number or a real number. Mostly two options are necessarily real numbers. Eliminate the unnecessary answers and find the correct one.
7. Be clear about the JEE Main Math syllabus, question pattern and the weight of those questions in perspective of the exam.
8. Candidates should have an idea about exam duration and marking scheme.
9. Make a time-table and fix specific hours for a particular subject that you can devote.You need to stick to that timetable even if initially this schedule doesn’t work properly.
8. Find the right Math books and study materials so that it will be easier for the exam preparation.
9. NCERT books are always best for preparation. This is not only true for Math but also for Physics and Chemistry.
10. Besides that, there are other important books which are good for revision and practice. You can make some research work on the Google; find the views of toppers in the net which books they had followed.
