# The secret behind qualifying the mathematics section of JEE-Mains with ease!

With just few days to go for the IIT- JEE, stress is at its peak. This is the major milestone that the aspiring engineers need to cross in order to get into the prestigious IITs! If you are also one of those eyeing the JEE, then by now you must havereferred every possible textbook and must be well-prepared to ace the JEE. But are you also one of those who are afraid of the monster called mathematics? Friends, it’s time to get rid of this apprehension and to fathom the beauty of this lively subject!

JEE is undoubtedly a hard nut to crack but a bit of smart work can actually simplify your journey of preparation and can lead you to the pinnacle of success. A loss of single mark could mean a fall of several ranks and hence, you cannot dare to skip any chapter from the syllabus. However, once you are done with your preparationyou can just have a look at the topics which require exceptional attention. Just in case, you are left with less time and you cannot prepare the entire syllabus, we shall help you in knowing the simple topics which can fetch you maximum marks in JEE.

The various topics of the mathematics syllabus of JEE are tabulated below. The topics are in increasing order of difficulty level i.e. the simplest on the top, harder the next and the hardest at the end. A particular chapter may be simple for one and hard for the other. So, this list is in accordance with the conception of not all but majority of students:

 S. No. Topics 1. Matrices and Determinants 2. Limit of a Function 3. Differential Equation 4. Applications of Derivatives 5. Fundamentals of Mathematics 6. Sequence & Series 7. Complex Numbers 8. Coordinate Geometry (3D) 9. Vectors 10. Parabola 11. Methods of Differentiation 12. Circle 13. Permutation & Combination 14. Probability 15. Binomial Theorem 16. Inverse Trigonometric Function 17. Solution of Triangles 18. Straight Lines 19. Definite Integration 20. Area Under Curves

This list helps you in getting acquainted with the simple and scoring heads in the IIT JEE Mathematics syllabus.Topics like matrices and determinants, application of derivatives, complex numbers are simple as well as quite scoring. This list can actually put your revision plan on the correct track.

Let us have a look at the approximate weightage of various topics in JEE:

 S. No. Topics Weightage 1. Applications of Derivatives 18% 2. Complex Numbers 12% 3. Coordinate Geometry (3D) 10% 4. Probability 10% 5. Vectors 8% 6. Parabola 5% 7. Inverse Trigonometric Function 4% 8. Binomial theorem 3% 9. Permutation & Combination 3% 10. Sequence & Series 3% 11. Matrices & Determinants 3% 12. Methods of differentiation 3% 13. Solution of triangle 3% 14. Fundamentals of Mathematics 3% 15. Circle 3% 16. Limit of Function 3% 17. Differential Equation 2% 18. Straight Lines 2% 19. Definite Integration 2% 20. Area Under Curves 2%

The JEE takers are recommended to concentrate more on areas like vectors and 3-D, rather than probability or definite and indefinite integration. The simple reason behind this is that these topics offer marginal scope to the examiner, as far as variety in problem is concerned. Just 7-8 type of problems can be framed on these topics and hence, once you master those you are done. Same is the case with complex numbers. Usually set pattern of questions are asked from this head as well.

The table listed below illustrates some of the simple topics which carry good weightage in JEE.Though it is not advisable to do selective study in JEE but yet if you are not left with any other option, then you can select the topic form this list as these topics can be prepared without much efforts and will also fetch you good marks.

 S. No. Topics Weightage 1. Application of Derivatives 18% 2. Complex Numbers 12% 3. Coordinate Geometry (3D) 10% 4. Vectors 8% 5. Parabola 5% 6. Matrices & Determinants 3% 7. Limit of a Function 3% 8. Differential Equation 2% 9. Fundamentals of Mathematics 3% 10. Probability 10%

Some topics like probability are not very simple due to the fact that wide variety of problems can be framed on this topic. But, in spite of this, generally some standard questions are framed on this topic. Thus, since it carries around 10% weightage, so the JEE takers are advised to focus on probability as well as you might get lucky to get some standard question.

Even if you cover just complex numbers, vectors, 3-D and definite integrals you can easily qualify the mathematics cut-off! Keep these topics in mind and buckle up for your preparation.

Gear up for JEE and give it your best shot! All the best!
