National Testing Agency, NTA’s decision to conduct the JEE Main exam in two phases and taking the better of the two percentiles to decide the ranking and the further selection process for JEE Advanced has become a blessing for candidates who were unable to secure their best at first attempt.
It is a chance for aspirants to analyze their shortfalls so that they can strengthen their subjects more and can crack the exam scoring best.
After the result declaration, candidates eyeing for the IIT’s would have had a better glimpse of the nature of the exam.
Few candidates secured 100 percentile in the JEE Main first session however, there are some who had left with not a better score so they can appear for the upcoming exam in April 2020.
Aspirants need to concentrate on the weak points which affected their scores in the first session so as to avoid the same mistakes as before.
As per changes have been made this year in the JEE main exam pattern, all the three sections i.e. Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics had 20 Multiple Choice Questions and 5 Numerical based questions. Therefore, students must practice all such questions in a different way since no guess will work.
The syllabus of class 11th & 12th contributes about 45% and 55% to JEE Main respectively.
Preparing all chapters is a must, but here are some which need more focus as described below under the respective subject. The strategy of preparing subject is to devote equal time to each, revision, practising important questions and mock test papers online.
Daily planning will help to manage and schedule the time to optimum utilization. As it is said, ‘ Practise makes the man perfect’, it is also somewhere true that, ‘Practising subjects make scores perfect’.
Making short notes, concepts and formulas at a glance are helpful.
It is advised to all to keep your concepts clear and plan day wise and follow the schedule.
Important chapters for physics-
Kinematics, Gravitation, Fluids, Heat & Thermodynamics, Waves & Sound, Capacitors & Electrostatics, Magnetics, Electromagnetic Induction, Optics and Modern Physics.
Practising quality problems is the key to success in this subject. If concepts are clear, then this subject becomes even more interesting.
Mechanics is one topic of Physics that is considered less scoring by most experts. However, this is also the topic that forms the major portion of the exam in terms of marks.
So, this topic cannot be neglected.
Revise your Chemistry –
- Organic, Inorganic and Physical all three have almost same share in JEEM paper.
- Organic Chemistry- Focus on various name reactions which you have studied across XI and XII and their mechanisms.
- Inorganic Chemistry- Focus areas should be chapters like chemical bonding, p-block elements, Coordination Chemistry and Qualitative Analysis. Try to remember things so that you can retain it till the test.
Chemistry has a vast syllabus and should be prepared smartly. Some of the valuable tips for JEE Main chemistry:
1.Equilibrium: Consisting of both ionic and chemical equilibrium, it is an important portion of physical chemistry and is asked in a majority.
2.Aldehydes, ketones and acid: Mostly this section of organic chemistry is asked in the form of named reactions.
3.Coordination compounds: It is an easy and conceptual chapter and is very important and fetches easy marks too.
4.Heat and thermodynamics: This chapter is present in physics and chemistry syllabus both and the difference is of only a few rules so doing this one will help both ways.
5.Biomolecules and polymers: This is the most boring part of chemistry and is skipped by a lot of aspirants. But this is just rote learning and if done properly can fetch lots of quick marks.
6.Chemical bonding: It is a conceptual portion of inorganic chemistry and is always asked in a good number.
After doing all these stuff, you must not forget to revise the notes that you have made in past hence, daily practising mock test will excel your confidence.
