The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main is a competitive examination conducted every year for admission to various undergraduate engineering courses all over India in NITs, IIITs and other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs) etc. Although the syllabi of Class XI and XII and that of JEE are similar, there is a huge difference in the level and pattern of JEE and Board examination. To secure a phenomenal rank, you need to adopt a different approach for JEE (Main) 2020 exam. Apart from studying the NCERTs, here’s a subject-wise study plan that can help you prepare well for JEE (Main) 2020.
To score in Physics you have to be fast, accurate and smart. Using discretion and picking up the right questions during the exam is very important and should form a part of your exam strategy. Go through each derivation, prepare short notes and most importantly memorize the formulae, definitions and processes. Read the theory and practice examples in the NCERT textbook.
Concepts in Physics by Dr. H.C. Verma is a great source for strengthening the basics after completing the NCERT textbook. Beginning with its worked out examples, solve objectives I, II and the exercise questions. A good study material consisting of actual exam like questions and a well-researched and lucidly written content like that of Aakash can be a boon for students preparing for the intended exam.
Chapters including System of Particles and Rotational Motion, Current Electricity, Electrical Potential and Capacitance, Ray Optics and Units and Measurement etc. are extremely important. On the other hand, Mechanical Properties of Solids, Magnetism and Matter and Kinetic theory of gases etc are the chapters from which fewer questions are asked.
Chemistry is considered easier by most JEE (Main) aspirants. It is a straightforward exam based only on facts elucidated in the NCERT textbook. So covering the whole of the NCERT textbook along with examples is a must.
Chemical Bonding and Molecular Structure, Bio-molecules, Polymer, Aldehyde Ketone and Carboxylic acids, Equilibrium, Coordinate Compounds, Qualitative Analysis etc. constitute the major part of the Chemistry paper. On the other hand, General Principles and Processes of Isolation of Elements and Surface Chemistry etc. have lesser number of questions in the exam.
Mathematics is the key element of the JEE Main exam. And to ace mathematics you should practice regularly and as much as possible. In addition, understand the derivations deeply. Ask yourself questions like: What is the need for such a formula? What steps or techniques are used to arrive at the conclusions? Where to use this formula? All the rationale behind should be probed into.
The pattern of a solution to a problem must be worked upon. A typical question often requires a combination of various concepts and their intertwining among themselves. Their analysis helps in strengthening the concepts and imbibing the requisite skills.
During the exam, picking up problems on the basis of easy, medium and difficult and attempting them in this order goes a long way in ensuring success as initial success generates confidence and calms down the mind to think more analytically for the remaining more trickier problems.
Chapters like 3-Dimensional Geometry, Applications of Derivatives, Limits, Continuity and Differentiability and Matrices and Determinants constitute a higher number of questions in JEE (Main) exam.
Apart from that, solve previous year papers to gain an insight into the exam pattern and types of questions asked, difficulty level, etc. You should also solve as many mock tests as possible to assess your level of preparedness and to improve your speed and accuracy. In addition, enrol for AIATS (All India Aakash Test Series) to know your potential at All India Level. AIATS is an excellent source to prepare for JEE (Main) 2020. It builds your test taking skills and exposes you to the real exam-like scenario. To know more, click: https://bit.ly/2njL6de
