JEE Main Physics Preparation Tips 

If you have solved the previous year's JEE Main papers or even if you have glanced at the previous year's papers of JEE Main, you might have found that the Physics section is often the tough one. Even if it is not the toughest, it includes certain questions that make this section quite difficult for the students to handle. This is why many students look for JEE Main Physics preparation tips so that they can build a solid strategy for the JEE Main Physics section and get maximum marks in it. So here we are, with the best tips on preparing the Physics section of JEE Main. 


JEE Main Physics Section A Preparation: Important Topics 

First, let us start with the list of important topics in Physics. If you have gone through the JEE Main Physics syllabus, You will find that there are two sections in the Physics paper. The first section includes theory and the second section includes questions based on experimentation skills. JEE Main 2022 Physics syllabus includes 21 units in total. Given below is the chapter-wise weightage of JEE Main Physics. This is an analysis of JEE Main 2020 and 2021 papers.

5 Tips to prepare for JEE Main 2022-2023


#1 Create short notes of formulas

You must have heard about creating a formula sheet for Physics. But, here’s something better. Why not create some short notes for every formula you study depicting the meaning of the formula and its applications. This will help you revise every formula in-depth. 


#2 Practice reading questions carefully 

It is necessary for you to understand JEE Physics questions properly if you want to answer them correctly. To ensure this, you need to practice reading questions quickly, just like you are answering your JEE Main paper. Solving mock tests and sample papers will help you in this. You can also solve previous year question papers for JEE Main and gradually increase your problem-solving speed. 


#3 Feedback is very important

Once you solve a sample paper or a previous year paper for JEE Main, it is important for you to analyse your solutions. This way you can identify your areas of improvement. For example, if you are getting questions of optics wrong in every sample paper, you know that you need to revise this topic once again. 


At askIITians, our JEE Main experts keep a track on the progress of every student with the same motive. We want students to understand their strengths and weaknesses so that they can enhance their levels of preparation. 


#4 Revise frequently 

Do not just keep learning new topics. Find some time to revise what you have studied. Some students do a weekly review of what they have studied across the whole week. Choose any day of the week to revise what you have learned in the past 6 days. Then, schedule revision sessions on that day of the week every time. 

  • Create notes while learning a topic and note down all the important points and formulas. Use these notes while revising the topic. 
  • If you do not like creating notes. You can also use a highlighter and annotate important notes in your book itself. 
  • If you prefer visual aids, use mind maps and flashcards. They will help you revise complex topics in just a few minutes. 
  • Formula sheets are a must in Physics. You can also add all important diagrams on the sheet and revise the topics easily. 


#5 Solve at least 5 questions every day 

If you have at least a year for JEE Main, you can start with practising 5 Physics questions from JEE Main previous year papers every day. This will make you familiar with the exam pattern and the type of questions asked in JEE Main. Also, it will help you stay in touch with JEE topics. You can keep studying JEE Physics syllabus side by side and slowly and steadily keep preparing for the exam. It will not make you feel overwhelmed or pressured at all.

Frequently Asked Questions 

  • How to improve Physics for JEE Main 2022? 

Prepare a cheat sheet or formula sheet for all important formulas in Physics. Revise the equations and important formulas from this sheet every day. Solve sample papers and previous year papers for JEE Main to enhance your problem-solving speed and accuracy. Focus on important topics more and practice a variety of questions for each topic. 


  • Is NCERT Physics textbooks for Class 11 and Class 12 enough for JEE Main? 

NCERT books are good for gaining fundamental knowledge but are certainly not sufficient for an examination like JEE. You must refer to other books as well for complete preparation of the JEE Main Physics section. 


  • How many questions are asked in the JEE Main Physics section? 

There are 20 multiple choice questions and 10 numerical answer-type questions in the Physics section of JEE Main. You have to solve 20 multiple choice questions and only 5 numerical answer-type questions. The maximum marks for the Physics section are 100. 


  • Is there a negative marking in the Physics section of JEE Main? 

Yes, there is a negative marking in the Physics section of JEE Main. 1 mark will be deducted for every wrong answer.
