  • Candidates should make themselves familiar with various units associated with physical quantities. Then compile a list of all units where they can often get confused.  
  • Aspirants have to pay special attention to topics that are there in JEE Main 2022 syllabus but not in like semi-conductor devices, electromagnetic waves, communication systems etc.
  • Questions from semi-conductor devices, electromagnetic waves, communication systems etc based on these topics are often straightforward and simple. Always candidates are advised to do a little extra reading, which will help them to improve their score significantly. A thorough understanding of all that is given in NCERT textbooks on such topics is usually sufficient to solve questions in JEE Mains.
  • Candidates must make sure to have a good command of ‘Vector treatment’ wherever required.
  • As per the experts, along with any standard formula, candidates should also understand their limitations. For example, the famous equations of Kinematics are for uniform acceleration only.

How To Handle Tough Topics in JEE Chemistry

How to prepare for JEE Main 2022 Chemistry

The chemistry subject is mainly divided into three parts – physical, organic and inorganic chemistry:

Physical Chemistry – Candidates are advised to maintain a diary for quick revision of simple formulas pertaining to chapters like atomic structure, solid-state, ionic equilibrium, electrochemistry and thermochemistry. Also, keep in mind the situations where these formulae cannot be applied directly. An extra effort should be given to the topics mentioned above as more questions are often asked from these topics. Also, remember to study the values of log 2 (0.3010) and log 3 (0.4771) as they often come up during calculations.

Organic chemistry

In this part, candidates have to focus on various name reactions that they have come across and their mechanism. As per the experts, reactions like Ozonolysis, Aldol, Cannizzaro, Perkin and Hoffmann’s should be thoroughly understood and questions related to them should be practised regularly. The special focus should be on GOC (General Organic Chemistry). One should be good at comparing the stability of reaction intermediates and questions related to acidity and basicity. Isomerism and Organic compounds containing Oxygen should be studied in detail. Lastly, one should remember tests of the various functional groups.

Inorganic Chemistry

Here again one should maintain a diary for noting down trivial facts pertaining to the formula of ores and composition of alloys which often come up in objective tests. Besides this, the focus should be on chapters like chemical bonding, p block elements and coordination chemistry from where the bulk of questions are asked.

How To Handle Tough Topics in JEE Mathematics

How to prepare for JEE Main 2022 Mathematics 

For Mathematics, it is advisable to have a list of formulae and important concepts handy. It is better to make this list oneself rather than rely on some pre-prepared list as while writing it out one can modify it to suit individual requirements.

Below are some topics where there should be a focus area:

  • Co-ordinate Geometry: Go through the formulae with an eye on trying to pick up similarities between them – this will help in recall during the examination. Do not neglect geometrical properties especially for straight lines and circles; include those in your notes too.
  • Trigonometry: Split your notes into four parts - basic formulae, trigonometric equations, inverse and solution of triangles. However, there seem to be many formulas in this chapter in reality JEE Main questions are likely to be based on the more common results so keep those in mind.
  • Algebra: In this part, there are few formulae here, mainly properties. For Quadratic or Theory of equations, be clear about how the symmetric sums of roots occur in an equation as well as the transformation of equations. It is important in Complex Numbers to revise the interpretation of various formulae in the geometric form; it makes them more intuitive and easier to remember. Binomial, Permutation and Combination, and probability are all connected and should be revised together. In the latter two, it is good to have a marked a few typical problems to revise as well since they are less formula based and geared more towards problem-solving strategies.
  • Calculus: Candidates should be very clear on the standard limits, differentiation formulae and standard integration results. Besides this, also revise the theoretical requirements for Continuity and Differentiability as well as the properties of Definite Integration.
  • Vector and 3-D Geometry: Try to do them in conjunction as they are closely related. The questions in this section are likely to involve standard formulae.

FAQs regarding JEE Main Important Topics

Q. Which chapters can I skip for JEE Mains?

A. In exams like JEE Main one should try to cover the whole syllabus and should not skip any topic. It is important to study all topics well.

Q. Is NCERT enough for JEE?

A. The bottom line is that NCERT books are among the best books for JEE Main, but they are not enough as they don't include revision of complex JEE questions. With NCERT books, you can build your foundation of the basic knowledge required for tackling advanced level problems in JEE.

Q. Is HC Verma better or DC Pandey?

A. Both books are primarily used for JEE preparation. So the question implies which book is better to crack JEE. HC Verma is more of a conceptual book while DC Pandey is more problem-oriented.

Q. Can I cheat in JEE mains?

A. No, you cannot cheat in JEE Mains. Moreover, JEE Mains will be conducted in online or computer-based mode, which makes use of secured IT software which prevents the leaking of question papers.

Q. Is the class 11 syllabus important for JEE?

A. Class 11 syllabus serves like a solid-base in JEE Main and class 12 syllabus helps you in cracking the JEE Main. Both classes are important and you need to prepare well for your JEE Main exam 2022.

Q. Which is the most scoring subject in JEE mains?

A. Chemistry is the most scoring subject with the average score being more than 35 marks; Mathematics on the other hand is the most difficult to score off averaging a little over 25.

Q. How many hours do IIT toppers study?

A. Most experts recommend that students study for at least six hours a day or 42 hours a week or so (excluding the time they spend in coaching classes) to prepare adequately for the JEE.

Q. Can an average student crack IIT?

A. Yes, an average student can absolutely crack IIT JEE provided he/she is ready to work hard with consistency. There have been many average students who cleared JEE with a good rank.

Q. Is stoichiometry important for JEE?

A. Yes, it is for sure!! Stoichiometry may even cover a major part of physical chemistry in the mains paper.

Q. Is RD Sharma enough for JEE mains?

A. RD Sharma is recommendable if you want to start your preparation. The book comprises a lot of formula-based questions and some analytical problems. It is a preferable book to prepare for Mathematics.

Q. Is trigonometry important for JEE?

A. Yes, trigonometry is important for JEE Mains and Advanced. The tricks to transform the trigonometric equations will also help in Calculus.

Your nearly 60 percentile score indicates that 40% of the 3.2 L or 8L students that took the test scored higher than you. Additionally, practically all students choose CSE as their first choice. Because of this, I believe you have no chance at all of being admitted to this branch. However, I have provided a website below that will forecast the branch and college you can go depending on your percentile in order to assist you. https://www.shiksha.com/engineering/jee-main-college-predictor

Okay. Ranking in JEE Mains depends on the percentile that one secures in the examination. In addition National testing agency selects best out of the two performances of a student to determine his or her percentile. This is calculated up to the 7th decimal place. Once both the sessions of examinations are over NTA will declare the results of JEE Mains and devil also announce simultaneously the percentile and the ranking which students have obtained in this examination. No one else can determine the percentile since the data required is available only and only with NTA. Suggest that have a patience of few days and you will come to know from the official website of this agency about your results. Best wishes to you.
