How To Complete JEE Advanced Syllabus?
You must have already prepared for JEE Mains and the concepts asked in JEE Advanced are almost the same. A more practical approach is required in JEE Advanced. Follow the points as under to successfully complete the JEE Advanced syllabus on time:
- a) Most of the JEE Advanced 2021 syllabus is the same as that of the board exams. So, if you are through with the concepts of Class 11 & 12, you can crack the examination.
- b) Solve JEE Advanced previous year tests. All questions will cover something or the other from all chapters you studied by then. You will also identify your weak chapters and chapters that are important. Work on them.
- c) A few topics like black body radiation, damped oscillations, emissive and absorptive power, Stefan’s law, Wien’s displacement law, etc. in thermal physics will require specific consideration as they are generally excluded from the 11th class syllabus.
- d) Don’t forget to study the wave function’s significance in the probability of finding an electron for different subshells. If your basics are clear, you will find these topics easy and interesting.
- e) Make a daily schedule, and study the important chapters first (high weightage). After that, try to include small topics.
- f) Move through the easy topics swiftly and lay more emphasis on hard topics.
- g) Give at least 8 hours to your revision including mock tests.
- h) Cover the lengthy chapters from each subject first and then move on to short ones.
