JEE Main Preparation 2022 — Overview
Cracking a competitive exam like JEE Main is an intimidating job, but it is not impossible. The aspirants need to know how to begin their JEE Main preparation and what needs to be done.
JEE Maintoppers sharing the success mantra suggest that the engineering exam preparation can be broken down into six stages as follows:
Understanding JEE Main syllabus
Knowing JEE Main exam pattern
Preparing a robust JEE Main 2022 preparation plan
Reference books must be checked for conceptual clarity
Practising JEE Main questions and attempting mock tests are important
Having a JEE Main exam day strategy
JEE Main 2022: Important Points to Know
This year, the Joint Entrance Exam will be held two times, i.e., in June and July.
The National Testing Agency (NTA) will be conducting the engineering exam as a CBT in two shifts, morning and noon, for B.Tech and B.Arch programmes.
JEE Main is the national-level engineering entrance exam organised for admissions to 31 NITs, 25 IIITs, and 28 GFTIs. Further, JEE Main is also the screening exam for admissions to 23 IITs.
JEE Main 2022 application form for session 1 has been reopened.
JEE Main 2022 Preparation — Understanding Syllabus
The toppers and exam experts suggest that engineering aspirants must familiarise themselves with the JEE Main 2022 syllabus. This examination strategy will help the candidates to understand the granularity of the examination. Therefore, they would know what portion of the JEE Main syllabus would be based on each of the Classes 11 and 12.
Therefore, segregating the syllabus of JEE Main 2022 between Class 11 and Class 12 will help them cover the most important chapters while leaving out the less important ones from both classes.
Moreover, according to exam experts, students appearing for both 12th class board exams and JEE Main 2022 should adopt this strategy to prepare for both exams simultaneously. Applying the same strategy, the Class 12th students could initially rigorously prepare those chapters common in JEE Main and Board exam, thereby saving a lot of time while they work on the remaining chapters. Exam experts have shared a tentative weightage of JEE Main 2022 important topics. Find the same in the table below:

JEE Mains Preparation 2022: Subject-wise Tips
Candidates can make the best use of Embibe’s study material and practice questions to ace the exam. Check the table below to get the subject-wise and chapter-wise notes:
Being calculative in nature, mathematics requires a special analytical approach to problem-solving. Maths is possibly one of the most difficult subjects for students to clear among the list of JEE Mains syllabus. Candidates can practice section-wise topics of the JEE Mains Mathematics syllabus from the table below.
The National Testing Agency has announced the paper pattern of JEE Main 2022. Knowing the exam structure, including the number of questions, subject-wise marks allotment, marking scheme and test duration, would help aspirants in building their exam preparation strategy.
While aspirants have known the exam pattern and segregated JEE Main syllabus, the next stage is preparing a robust study plan for the engineering entrance exam. The experts suggest covering the topics which are easy to comprehend, as per one’s capability, before moving on to the medium-difficult and then to the most difficult ones.
The exam experts from Embibe advise that every individual has their own capability and hold over each topic. Basis their command over each of the subjects and thereby subject matters, the candidates need to prepare their study plan. This strategy will ensure two important points; firstly, candidates can utilise their preparation time according to their subject-difficulty level. Secondly, they get enough time for working on the weaker sections.
Preparing an actionable and executable plan for JEE Main 2022 is important because setting high bars with no self-context can lead to disappointments. However, the plan should be easily achievable, bit by bit, to confirm that no questions based on the topic go wrong in the examination paper.
For the JEE Main Preparation, toppers sharing their success mantra suggest referring to NCERT Books for conceptual clarity. The JEE Main toppers also advise the habit of note-making. According to the exam toppers, flashcards and short notes would prove quite handy during the last lap of preparation for JEE Main 2022.
Sharing tricks for cracking JEE Main paper, the top rankers have also shared that they would always practice-related questions from past years’ papers after they have completed a chapter or a set of chapters of any subject. Advocating this practice, they are quoted saying, ‘Practicing the questions ensures that the learnt concepts of topics are being retained and can be solved in quick time.’
Sharing the tricks for JEE Main exam preparation, the toppers advise attempting mock tests, which can be chapter-wise, half-tests, or full tests.
Exam experts corroborating the preparation strategy suggest that not just attempting mock tests but analysis of the given tests is also important to gauge failures. ‘This is where an aspirant can improve on the weaker sections,’ share exam experts from Embibe.
Last but not least, both exam experts and toppers suggest taking small breaks in-between the study routine. According to psychologists, a 5-7 minutes break after every 45 minutes gives the human brain to recollect things done during the 45-minute window.
