Physics is considered one of the toughest subjects, yet it is also one of the most interesting. The reasons behind Physics being interesting for students are the pattern of questions asked in the JEE and the course content. The course of  Physics is very practical, making it simple for students to understand because they can relate it to their everyday lives. Additionally, the JEE questions are largely application-based and practical in nature. The application-based questions in the Physics portion are simple to solve but challenging to understand. To solve such types of questions, students need to have a proper plan and this document will help you with just that.

How to prepare for Physics?

The syllabus and strategy to prepare for physics have been prepared by EduRev experts by analysing and compiling the most important tips and strategies for physics followed by JEE mains toppers such as  Mridul Agarwal (AIR 1 in JEE advance 2021 and 100 percentile in JEE mains 2021), Amaiya Singhal (100 percentile in JEE mains 2021), Siddhant Mukerjee (100 percentile in JEE mains 2021) and Anmol Arichwal (100 percentile in JEE mains 2021). Our focus in preparing this article has been to provide you with the information you need to score 100 per cent in the physics part of the JEE exam.

How to Prepare for JEE Physics with EduRev? | How to prepare for JEE

Step 1: Understand the syllabus and previous year’s questions.

  • Exam Pattern: The physics section of the exam will have 2 sections i.e. A and B containing 20 and 10 questions respectively. However, while attempting questions asked in Section B candidates can choose to attempt any 5 Questions out of 10.

  • Learn everything you can about the syllabus, exam style, and scoring system if clearing the JEE exam is your aim. Also, you should be aware of the important topics, their weightage, and the total amount of questions. The weightage of different chapters is provided at the end of this guide. 

  • Another method to become familiar with the types of questions that appear in the exam is to skim through a few JEE Previous Years Question papers. You will be able to tell the difference between chapters with high and low weightage as well as chapters that are easy, moderate, and challenging. You can then analyse the important topics.

Step 2: Build your concepts

Step 2.1  Tips before you start working on the concepts.

  • Having a schedule is the first thing that you need to do when you finally start preparing. You can create your own schedule for studying for the exam. Studying the night before an exam and expecting to do well is inappropriate for this type of test. Due to the extensive syllabus and the exam's high level of difficulty, you should create a plan of study and follow a schedule. The study timing, the topics to be covered, their level of difficulty, the time allotted for each topic, and the deadline for the revision must all be included in the study plan. The schedule that students have created for themselves must be followed religiously.

  • While understanding a concept, go into the root of the problem, and understand the concepts instead of memorising them

  • You should make your own notes, whenever you cover a new topic, or you can check out and save the tones of revision notes provided by Edurev. 

  • While solving questions, try to attempt them on your own first before checking the question as it will improve your problem-solving abilities.

  • Do not use a calculator when practising because you should develop the habit of doing maths on your own. This will increase the speed and accuracy of your calculations.

  • With practice, try to build speed in solving the questions.

  • In order to improve your understanding of physics, you must go through proper chapter notes, videos and practise the concept again and again. Regular practice is the key to acing the physics section of JEE.

EduRev provides complete chapter notes, videos, revision notes, tests and much more in its Physics for JEE course. 

Step 2.2. How to study the concepts of physics.

  • NCERT must be read, but before reading NCERT as NCERT for Physics can be difficult to understand at first, read the theory from HC Verma, it is given in a simplified manner. After HCV, you can read NCERT for theory. 

  • In NCERT, go through summary points and points to ponder always (blue boxes do). NCERT is an excellent book that provides excellent applications. You can read the NCERT PDFs in EduRev.

  • Understand concepts first from teachers by watching videos and start attempting questions. You can also build your concepts by referring to the EduRev Course of Physics Class 11 and Physics Class 12 in which you will get precise notes, videos and tests.

  • Attempt NCERT Exemplar and Exercise questions and HCV questions, this will help you in building your concepts to a much better level. You can attempt and practice questions from EduRev also. For NCERT Exemplar and Exercise questions, click here and for HCV questions, click here.

Step 3: Make Short notes for quick revision

  • Formula sheets: After you have understood the derivation of a formula, learn the formula by heart so that you can easily recall them while solving numerical problems. Maintain a formula book for yourself so that you can keep in mind the formulas anytime you need them. Learning different formulae is difficult yet very beneficial. If those are at your fingertips, a lot of time would be saved while solving numericals. You can also check out the formula sheets of each chapter provided by EduRev here. 

  • Mind maps: You should make your own notes of NCERT for referring again and again. Revision can be done through mind maps also. EduRev gives the opportunity of chapter-wise mind maps which aids in better planning. Check it out here.

  • Tables and charts: According to toppers, you should make short notes in tabular form which makes memorising easy and effective. All the formulas of physics should be listed on a sheet and revised regularly. 

  • Make notes: Try making notes in the side margin of the NCERT textbook or HC Verma so that the important points do not get missed out while revision. Also, if while studying, a doubt arises in your mind, note it down in the side margin. In this way, that doubt is cleared in your mind every time you do revision.

  • Make a complete list of derivations, formulas, and experiments in your syllabus and keep that list somewhere you can see it every day. Make Flashcards for the formulae and topics you feel you need to be clear with. Just a glance during the last days will sort them out for you. You can also check out a complete course of flashcards available on EduRev, here.

Step 4: Practice, Practice, and more Practice

Step 4.1. Practise numericals on daily basis.

Physics numerals are deemed no less than a nightmare by students because of this they tend to overlook it and do not practise enough. 

  • MCQ solving is a must! Make sure apart from theory solve a lot of MCQs.

  • Do NCERT book questions (Exemplar problems & Exercise problems) first, after that do HCV Solved examples, then go for HCV MCQ 1 and MCQ 2. You can practice NCERT questions from EduRev also, click here & HCV questions practice can also be done from the EduRev platform, click here for class 11 & class 12.

  • After solving HC Verma, you should solve questions from DC Pandey as DC Pandey covers a variety of questions of various levels.

  • Practice more and more from Irodov but on limited Topics as Irodov questions are quite advanced. You can practice Irodov questions from the EduRev platform also, click here.

Step 4.2. Take up Mock Tests & PYQs 

  • Check your preparation level: For checking the level of your preparation you should start attempting mock tests, even if your preparation is completed just for one subject, you should start attempting subject mocks. EduRev provides you with Physics subject mocks for your excellent practice in Physics.

  • Give numerous mocks: Give a lot and a lot of full mock tests every single day in the last 6 months if you are preparing for the last 2 years.

  • Learn Time Management: When you are attempting complete mocks, you will start learning the management of time as well as the discipline to sit straight for 3 hours. For complete mocks click here. It is really important to manage time in the physics section because it takes time to solve numericals.

  • You can get an All India Rank by taking mock tests on EduRev (AIR). Analysing your performance in mock tests and then fixing your weak areas will give your preparation an extra push. 

  • Revisit the important questions: You must mark the important and tricky questions while attempting the mocks and go back to them from time to time.

  • Attempt PYQs: You must attempt lots of previous year question papers so that you get yourself inlined with the pattern and type of questions coming in JEE Physics. You can find the previous 35 years' question papers on the EduRev platform, click here. Subject and topic-wise tests you keep on giving even with the mock tests.

Tip to solve numerical problems: Sometimes numerical problems are designed in such a way that you have to apply conceptual knowledge in order to solve it. Hence only memorising the formulas won’t be enough.

Step 5: Finish the syllabus and start revision 6 months before the exam

  • Review important questions: Revise Star-marked questions that you marked when you were unable to solve them. EduRev provides this feature to start the important questions. 

  • Avoid multiple sources for studying: Revise from one place again and again. Do not go for various sources. Multiple reading from one source is very very important.

  • Revise numerous times, do not leave doubts while revision, clear them.

  • For revising the notes, EduRev provides you with short revision notes on Physics, for revising click here.

  • The best revision is done by giving topics-wise tests, Subject wise tests, and Mock tests. EduRev provides all these tests for you to revise excellently.

  • Revise the formulas again & again from your formula book.

  • Revision of your self-notes will prove to be most beneficial as it will take less time to cover the whole syllabus in the last few days.

Step 6: Avoid silly mistakes on D-day

 Avoid simple errors to get a good score. Follow the following checklist to avoid making silly mistakes.

  • While attempting questions, read them carefully and take careful notes of the figures to prevent making foolish mistakes.

  • Section B of the test allows you to select 5 of the 10 questions. Choose problems that require fewer calculations to avoid losing points.

  • You should spend the first few minutes sorting through the 25 questions to find the simple ones.  40% to 50% of the JEE Physics problems are straightforward. 10% to 20% are easy, 20% to 30% are moderate, and 20% to 30% are hard. At first approach the questions that are easier to solve.  Every single mark matters. Use your time wisely.

  • Use as many rough pages as necessary while doing rough work for the exam. On the same piece of paper, avoid repeatedly scribbling.

  • The speed must be maintained during the final exam. In the JEE exam, you cannot spend more than 2 minutes on a question. But only speed will not secure your seat in the dream college, you need to maintain accuracy as well as there is negative marking in the exam. You can follow the speed rule for the first 90 minutes to ensure that you have solved enough questions required to meet the cut-off. Then you can follow the accuracy rule for the next 90 minutes. This strategy will help you to score 90+ in the JEE physics exam.
