From a theoretical standpoint, three of the pillars of JEE Mains and Advanced, namely Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics, have a comparable weightage, but in reality, how to attempt the papers to reap the greatest rewards is a different story.

We at Trigyaa, consider Modern Physics to be the key family member of Physics family in both the papers, one should start with Physics, because it has both numerical and theoretical questions. It challenges the mind but at the same time relaxes it with theoretical questions after every numerical.

On the other hand, mathematics needs the most active mind, so mathematics should not be attempted in one go. For the simple fact that if you find yourself stuck on a question, it breaks the flow and the morale for the entire JEE Mains paper. Thus, switching back and forth between Chemistry and Mathematics will not only give your mind a break, but it will also keep you in the solving mode, so even if you don’t get 1 mathematics question, you will get 5 chemistry questions, which isn’t a bad bargain.

While preparing, Mathematics should be practiced every day. Chemistry comes in 3 parts, focus should be first to deal with physical chemistry, then move towards organic chemistry as these 2 are conceptual while inorganic is majorly theoretical. Results and stats show that in chemistry, physical and organic take the major chunk, so having your head wrapped around them will make sure that 80% of the war is in your favour.

Inorganic should be handled when the mind is not able to take more and it can just memorise not conceptualize, this will make sure that slowly inorganic simmers in.

In physics, electrostats is a very important topic from class 12th perspective, while rotational motion, solids and fluid mechanics will give the most questions, particularly in JEE Advanced from class 11th perspective. Magnetism, Force, Work, Power, and Energy will all appear as wildcard entries in the JEE Mains paper, so make sure you know these concepts so that a large portion of the paper appears achievable, or in other words, like a cakewalk to you rather than a source of anxiety. so, this is how to attempt the papers to reap the greatest rewards!

Mathematics will be tricky, so make sure you keep practicing and solving mock papers. Complex numbers, factorials, and AOD will test your conceptual skills. The intellectual stimulation will come in the form of vectors, permutation and combination, probability, and other topics. Integration and differentiation might oscillate but this is what will test if you have the potential to be a great and competent engineer in IIT, so make sure you do not take these topics lightly.

Overall, coverage of all chapters is important, but make sure you study the previous year’s patterns, as it will give an idea as to which are the HOTS (high order thinking skills) questions and are the ones that should not be taken lightly come what may.
