TIPS TO PERFORM BETTER IN JEE MAINS PHYSICS
The major topics present in physics are
- Oscillations and waves
- Electrostatics and current electricity
- Magnetic effects of current and magnetism
- Modern Physics
- Fluid Mechanics
Physics is one subject where basics matter a lot. Most sums are not simple application of formulae. This subject is application oriented. Basics matter a lot. Be thorough with the NCERT textbook. The concepts should be at your fingertips.
Do not refer to many books. NCERT textbook is a must. H.C.Verma is the most popularly used book.
Solve as many problems as possible. The problems are tricky and one needs to be aware of all the conditions pertaining to a particular problem. Practice all the sums of the reference book of your choice. Also, practice all the sums of your college workbook. Solve as many previous year papers as possible.
Be quick while solving problems. Try to use the shortest method to solve a problem. Time is a big constraint. Moreover, devote more time to concepts you are not confident about while preparing. Physics is one subject where mugging up is not an option. Solve as many sums as you can.
Topics like Modern physics and Boolean algebra are easier when compared to the others. Be thorough with these. These topics will help you score in the exam. Focus on major topics such as kinematics, electrostatics, optics and magnetism. More weight age is given to these topics. Always use a formula book like Arihant handbook for physics. This might help in last minute revision.
Do not take notes in class. Always concentrate during lectures. This will be of use later. Also, make sure to get your doubts cleared at the earliest possible. In case you find it difficult to understand a particular topic, go through youtube videos. They help a lot.
- Never try to push physics for the last minute. This subject needs constant practice.
- Never mug up formulae. Understanding concepts are very important
- Do not mark an answer if you are not sure about it. Be careful about negative marking.
- It is ok to spend time on a particular sum. Learning half the concept is equal to learning nothing.
