IIT JEE Physics 2022 Study Tips 

You must create a schedule and decide how many topics you will cover every week and thereby decide how many topics you will study in a month. Once decided you should follow the timetable strictly. You must acknowledge the fact that the syllabus of JEE Main and Advanced Physics subject is quite vast and you need to devote some time every day to revise all the concepts thoroughly. 

 

  • Physics is a subject that not only involves theoretical concepts but also numerical problems. Therefore, students should find time to strengthen their conceptual understanding and also practice the numerical-based questions thoroughly. 
  • Check the weightage of every topic and prepare it accordingly. You can check the topic-wise weightage for JEE Physics from our website. 
  • Students must make a formula sheet where they can note down all important formulae of Physics for JEE. 
  • Students should practice questions related to electromagnetism and mechanics anf focus more on numerical problems in Physics. 
  • Students must also practice a variety of questions and do not just focus on previous year questions. 

 

Frequently Asked Questions 

 

  • How can I improve my Physics for IIT?
