JEE Main 2021 examination is about to be conducted soon. And, are you still worried about the right preparation strategy?
In Physics, if you can visualise the problem then you can apply the laws and easily solve it. Physics is a subject which can only be understood easily by those who are curious to know and explore things all around.
As the remaining time is very less, it is very important that you manage the time judiciously, balancing all the subjects together . Give more and more time to revision.
Do a thorough analysis of topics which are asked frequently in JEE Main Exam every year. Analyse the previous year papers well to get a gist of the questions asked in the exam. Focus on those topics more . Also understand the exam pattern well so that you have clarity about that before appearing in the final exam. Start with NCERT to build confidence and solve it on priority and skip to some other study material or books. Also prepare a sheet of Important Formulas of Physics for JEE and keep revising them.
Start with those topics for which you are very sure about, or the topics which have gone through previously and have some knowledge or idea about. This will help you boost up your confidence and you can mark checks in your list as completed.
Then, jump to those topics or concepts which you think you can understand and implement well.
Focus on Strengths : Focus on the topics that you feel confident about. Somebody may have mechanics as his/her strengths and somebody may have electromagnetism as his/her strength. Try to solve more questions on these topics.
Avoid Starting New Topics : In the last few days , you should avoid starting a new topic . Prioritise on revising the short notes , solve previously marked important questions and previous year questions. Starting a new topic may lead to stress as you may not be able to complete in the time left. You can brush up important formulas of all the topics.
Most Scoring Topics : Here is the list of several topics you can prepare at the last moment to secure at least 70+ marks in physics individually :
- Modern Physics
- Heat & Thermodynamics
- Current electricity
Keep enough time to read the question carefully while solving during the exam. There can be a possibility that you mis-read the question.
Books to be Prefered : Keep NCERT as the first priority. Concept given in NCERT is likely to be asked more . You can also practise previous year questions from various sites and can refer to books like HC Verma , DC Pandey, etc. Avoid starting Irodov at the last moment . You may lose confidence if you are not able to crack a few questions in these last days. Prefer conceptual questions rather than long calculative questions.
Work on Speed : As a limited time is available for each section in the paper . Work on your calculation Speed as well . Try to avoid silly calculation mistakes in order to save time.
Time management: Avoid wasting time. For that, you need to manage time in such a manner that you do not deviate from the set priorities. Avoid those questions which could cost you a lot of time . Be Smart in choosing questions . Make a schedule where you should give a minimum 3 hours to each subject.
Take mocks: The best thing you can do to polish your concepts and make better understanding is to take mock tests. Try to take the JEE Main Mock Test for Physics and complete it in a set time frame. And see the solutions and analyse the mistakes so that you do not do that in the final exam.
Don’t skip the topics: Cover the topics one by one rather than jumping on multiple ones at the same time and make a mixture of all the topics.
Positive Attitude: Keep an attitude that things will be done in your favor, avoid negative thoughts because they might lead you to over thinking and lest, you will end up doing nothing.You should avoid being anxious and panic at the last moments . It can hamper your performance.
Balanced DIet and Proper Sleep : Focus on a healthy diet and a schedule with proper sleep hours to enhance the productivity of your mind . Avoid carbonated drinks , junk foods and prefer fresh fruits . It will keep your brian active.
Use the last 20 days judiciously and you will surely score 70+ in Physics in JEE Mains.
