Tips by IITians and Experts

Maximising Your Score in JEE Main Physics Section - Tips by IITians and Experts

It’s very essential to not just understand the topics but also have a plan in terms of handling various topics. Candidates should have a clear understanding of their grasp on various chapters, they should work on the ones they find difficult and make sure that they score when they find a question from the topic they find easy. 

For the assistance of candidates, we have some specific tips on how to handle various topics by IITians and subject experts, candidates can take them into consideration while devising their own plan:

Mechanics: Weightage and Tips

Mechanics is one of the fundamental units in JEE Main Exam comprising nearly 35% of JEE Main Physics Syllabus. Mechanics thus becomes a quintessential part of your preparation.

  •  Following the past trends, questions correspond to the following chapters in their descending order of weightage: Rotational Motion, Waves, Units & Dimensions, Oscillations, Work, Energy & Power, Gravity, Mechanics of Solids & Fluids, Laws of Motion followed Kinematics. Some Important topics for your preparation having a higher probability of them being asked in the exam are Dimensional & Error analysis, Equations of Motion, Relative Motion, Simple Harmonic Motion, Kepler’s laws, Projectile & Circular Motion, Satellites, Mechanics of Common Forces, Potential Energy of a spring, Acceleration due to gravity, Transverse & Longitudinal waves-superposition and reflection, Moment of inertia and dynamics of Rotational Motion. The list, however, is not exhaustive.

  • HC Verma Physics is considered to have your basics in place, followed by practicing examples from DC Pandey. IE Irodov Book could be used to practice more complex questions. Solving Previous Year Question Papers is a must to know if your strategy and resources are accurate.

  • For Preparation, ensuring conceptual clarity and logical consistency is of absolute necessity.

  •  Questions need to be solved in a stepwise manner. Ensure you don’t follow short cuts even in your practice registers. The contextual method in your practice helps you improve pace & precision. 

  • If with your planning, you feel marginally comfortable, you can continue by considering answers to challenging problems and then seek to attempt certain problems without answers. 

  • More so, the logical thinking methodology, the analytical reasoning and decision making would ensure that you create a niche for yourself. This resonates with you by associating your theoretical learnings with real-life examples. Even if you are able to begin this process, this will stimulate your thinking and would develop further. Mastering it should not be your concern. Furthermore, time & stress management is of utmost importance.

  • Self-Analysis and self-designed strategy by way of taking numerous Mock Test Papers & consistency in your study routine is key to ace an exam.

Optics and Modern Physics: Weightage and Tips

JEE Main Physics questions range from thermodynamics to electromagnetism and as important as these topics are, optics and modern physics are certainly a major part of the exam. Considering optics alone, you can expect 5-6 questions in the examination, and 8-9 questions for both topics. That means that these topics are around 30-33% of JEE Main Physics Syllabus.

  • NCERT questions at the end of each chapter can help you to get started with the preparation.

  • If we go by the historical pattern, just studying these topics won’t be enough to get a good rank in JEE Main. Please keep that in mind, you need to score at least 50% marks to have a good rank. 

  • Some reference books that are good for these topics are:

Arihant’s Understanding Physics for JEE Main and Advanced Optics and Modern Physics 

Understanding Physics: OPTICS & MODERN PHYSICS by DC Pandey

Cengage Physics for JEE (Advanced): Optics & Modern Physics by BM Sharma 

  • A former IITian comments, “I found Understanding Physics by DC Pandey to be most helpful in my case as the solutions were easier to understand. Of course, one of the best books to cover optics and all other topics as well, is HC Verma. Don’t just rely on these reference books. Some solutions may be difficult to understand at first, but according to JEE Advanced, this level might not be too high.”

  • One of the keys to crack JEE is to write mock tests as much as possible. It gives you the idea of the examination as well as how much time you need to divide for each topic. The more mocks you write the better are your chances of making it to an IIT or any institute that you have in mind. Don’t skip any fundamentals, clarity boosts up confidance.

Preparation & Attempting Tips

JEE Main Physics - Preparation and Question Attempting Tips

Physics section plays an important role in both JEE Main and JEE Advanced, it can be a rank uplifting section for some. Candidates operate on different levels of caliber, we have devices some tips that can be helpful to all the candidates: 

  • Make topic-wise short notes of formulas and facts: This is something you can do while your preparation and also when you solve problems. It may seem like a basic strategy but it proves highly essential for memorizing and retaining information.

  • 3 hours of Physics per day: Make sure that you balance your preparation among the three subjects i.e. Chemistry, Physics and Maths. Giving 3 hours to physics on an average should be more than enough. Candidates must keep in mind their strong and weak zones before making their time table. 

  • Don’t jump on conclusions: Candidates often jump on conclusions intuitively while solving the questions. If you find yourself doing this mistake then try to write the information given in the question separately to make sure that you rely on facts while problem solving. 

  • Read the Question at least twice: Don’t panic if you can’t seem to get the question. Read the question carefully again, generally the information that can lead you to the answer of the question is hidden in the statement.

  • Accurate Problem solving approach: During your mock tests and practice papers, keep in mind that solving every question requires the right approach. This approach must include first understanding the question followed by application of concepts and ultimately calculation. 

  • Practice with Previous Year Papers and Mock Tests: Practicing is the most essential component of your preparation as per all the experts. Practice and analyze your performance constantly to know the productivity of your current plan. 

  • Revise at Regular Intervals: Most often than not candidates wait to cover the entire syllabus and then start revising. However, to keep your hold on concepts fresh, you must revise at regular intervals. This will also save your time when you sit for complete rounds of revision.

Ques. What exam must one clear and with what cutoff to get into IIIT Hyderabad?

● Top Answer By suyashi choubey on 19 Mar 21

Ans. There are different examinations to get admission at IIIT Hyderabad. The mode of admission at the institute is as follows.  JEE Main: Ensure that you score 270+ in the JEE Main to get a seat in a course of your interest. Through this mode, you can even take admission for all branches except CLD, CHD. Test and Interview: If you want to get a seat in the CLD or CHD course can definitely go for this mode of admission.  In this mode, you will experience at first a test and after that, all who clear the test will be called for a Personal Interview.  However, there is no definite cutoff for the test, but you need to give your personal best to qualify for the interview. NTSE, KVPY: First, you have to clear a test. Those who qualify for the test are called for a Personal Interview.  From there, candidates are selected for admission. However, this mode of admission is for the CND course only. DASA mode: This mode is especially meant for the students who have studied 11th and 12th(or equivalent) outside India and are valid foreign passport holders. Generally, all branches accept admission through this mode.  A valid SAT II score of above 2000 is a must-needed criterion. SAT I score is taken into consideration in case of ties. Olympiad mode: This mode is only applicable for students who have been selected for training in Science and Linguistics to represent India in International Olympiads.  In this mode, students are chosen through a Personal Interview. Admissions are granted for CSD, ECD, CND, BSD, and CLD branches. Lateral Entry:  In order to get a seat through this mode of admission, there is a test and a personal interview round. Generally, children are admitted to the second year in IIIT-H through lateral entry. As what other colleges teach in 2 years, IIIT-H teaches in the first year itself. This mode of admission is meant for students who have completed their first two years of engineering in either Computer Science or Electronics branch from any other college. Students are admitted to the CSD branch if they were in the Computer Science branch in their college or to ECD if they were in the Electronics branch.Read more

Ques. Which one is better, dropping a year for the BITSAT and JEE, or joining universities such as LPU or Amity?

● Top Answer By Rupesh Biswas on 12 Feb 21

Ans. Every candidate has their own perspectives and reasons for dropping a year or opting for a degree in any institute. It entirely depends upon your thoughts and decisions, and what you actually want from your career. The points mentioned below can be considered as a set of guidelines that would help to choose the right path. There are several choices which you can make in case of admission. You can prefer a good renowned government college and take any available stream in it, or a good private college (BITS, Thapar, etc) and choose your favorite stream. Considering the fact that you are comfortable with the high fees of the private institutes. Having an educational gap (drop) of one year is not a bad thing for a future career. Most candidates get to learn a lot of things from the self-available time, even some have genuine reasons for the drop. So, if you are extremely passionate about a stream, it is absolutely all-right to drop for a year. Check for the 50% quota for insiders in your home state NIT. If present, it will increase the chances of getting some stream in it. Usually, it is considered that the stream matters much less. What matters is the college name tag. There are several other institutes like Punjab University, UIET, etc which provide good infrastructure and opportunities. JAC is a committee for counseling in some good institutes in Chandigarh. These are some of the basics tips that would help you in the decision-making process.Read more

Ques. Which is better: JEE or BITSAT?

● Top Answer By Aniket Atul Mahulikar on 20 Jan 21

Ans. Both JEE and BITSAT are competitive entrances and comparing the two is not a good decision. Instead, try to focus on understanding the basics and concepts since the syllabus for the two entrances is pretty much the same. If you prepare religiously for JEE Advanced then you will be able to ace all engineering entrance exams including JEE Main and BITSAT. The table given below gives a brief comparison of the exams: Exam JEE Advanced BITSAT Mode of Exam Computer-based Test Computer-based Test Duration 3 Hours 3 Hours Type of Questions Multiple Choice Questions, Numerical Aptitude Questions Multiple Choice Questions Negative Marking Yes Yes  Syllabus Physics, Chemistry, Maths Physics, Chemistry, Maths, English and Logical Reasoning  JEE Preparation: JEE Advanced paper includes questions primarily from Physics, Chemistry and Maths, thus, try to give these topics enough time and practice.  While it is best to focus on JEE Advanced, it is equally important to prepare for BITSAT since the exam syllabus contains not only Physics, Chemistry, and Maths but also English and Logical Reasoning. BITSAT Preparation: Cracking BITSAT is all about technique and speed so try to practice online mock tests, previous year papers, and cover topics like English and Logical Reasoning to score better in the exams.  You should devote at least 3 months to BITSAT, three months are enough if you have a clear understanding of your basics and a strong foundation. Try not to compare the two exams; instead, focus on clearing your basics with the aim of cracking JEE Advanced so that you can score well in both JEE and BITSAT.Read more
