JEE Main Physics Preparation Tips

As per the various experts and institution’s analysis, it is difficult to understand which method should we use to score well in JEE Main Physics Sections. If you are focused on your goal, Physics can be cracked easily. You must know what are the important topics as per the exam point of view and which questions are generally covered frequently in past years. The most important thing is that you should have all the formulae memorised so well that no matter which numerical is served to you, you always know which formula is to be applied to it. Follow these tips to ace your JEE Main Physics segment:

Focus on the Basics

Candidates need to focus on their basics. Don’t forget to learn basic concepts while covering the syllabus of Physics. Don’t stress yourself if you could not cover the syllabus in this given period of time; just try to concentrate on the basics first. Go step by step, do the easier things first and then gradually move towards the tougher sections.

Know what to study

The Jee Main Physics Syllabus is very vast. In every exam, there are certain topics which are a little more important than the others as they have a history of being frequently asked. As per the expert analysis of learndunia.com, the below-listed topics are commonly asked in the JEE Main Physics Examination:

  • Mechanics – This section almost 37% of questions; still it is not scoring subjects because it is the significant portion which covers the difficulty levels.
  • Kinematics – These are really scoring topics and easily trackable.
  • Electricity – Every student can score 100% marks in this section because it is the topic which can be easily understood.
  • Thermodynamics – It appears in Physics as well as in Chemistry; therefore, it is essential.
  •  Magnetics- Start magnetism from the basics and try to solve more and more questions on this topic.
  • Electromagnetic Induction and AC- Faraday’s Law is important in this section.
  • Current Electricity– Ohm’s law, colour code for resistors, characteristic of ohmic and non-ohmic conductors is important.
  • Waves: Principle of superposition of waves, simple harmonic motion (SHM) and its equation, Doppler Effect is important.

Easy topics with high weightage

Each and every topic have its own importance, but the topics given below are some which can be easy to prepare and have high weightage such as :

  • Physics and measurement
  • Dual nature of matter and radiation
  • Communication system
  • Gravitation
  • KTG
