# Get All Important Topics in Physics, Chemistry, and Maths to Study for JEE-Mains

As the news of JEE-Mains following almost all patterns of previous year’s AIEEE has been doing the rounds, we have brought you a list of the most important topics to study for JEE-Mains this year all based on previous year’s AIEEE.

Find detailed topics of previous year’s question papers of AIEEE (from 2008 to 2011) on the list below. We advise you to go through this data if you are going to appear for JEE-Mains this year. This will give you an idea of how questions will be distributed based on different topics.

**Important Topics—Physics—JEE-Mains **

On the list below, we though don’t see any pattern being followed by AIEEE, but topics like Modern Physics, Optics, Heat and Thermodynamics, Electrostatics, Magnetism & Magnetic Effects of Current, EMI & AC Circuits and EM Waves show a connection in decreasing order.
