JEE Main Revision Tips And Tricks
Selective Revision: The JEE Main exam covers almost all the topics that has been given in the syllabus. But that being too vast and expansive, it is difficult to cover everything during revision. So pick up the most important topics and brush them up.

- Heat and Thermodynamics
- Waves and Sound
- Properties of Matter
- Current Electricity
- Theory of Fields – Electromagnetism
- Modern Physics
- Practical Physics
Important Topics in Chemistry to Study During JEE Main Revision
- Simply put, Chemistry is divided broadly into Physical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry. Maximum questions are asked from Physical Chemistry, then Inorganic and then Organic Chemistry.
- If you have prepared well for all those in the past two years, then while revision, focus on Physical.
- To revise for Organic Chemistry, go through the reaction charts and remember all the reaction chains.
Important Topics in Mathematics to Study During JEE Main Revision
- Coordinate Geometry
- Permutation and Combination
Plan and Revise: Chart out a plan beforehand and adhere to it. Depending upon the number of days left for your exam, mark on your calendar the topics you need to cover. Keep 3-4 days blank as you might need extra time to cover certain topics. For just a day prior to the exam, do not keep a very difficult topic as that might only escalate your nervousness.
Use your notes now: If you think you can pick up a new book to help you out now, you are wrong. The last moment revision calls for your flash cards or notes. Do not panic if you have not made notes earlier. Take the help of those books which have concise revision topics of your subjects. Though we urge students to keep notes for each subject in their own handwriting. Studying from self written notes has always proved to be more effective than books during revision.
Solve mock tests: Use this time to get yourself prepared for the hands on experience. If you have already solved previous year papers, solve JEE Main Mock Tests online. Also remember that whenever you solve mock tests, you must do it within the time limit. Speed is the most important factor that can determine your score.
JEE Main Revision is the most important part of your preparation now. So do it right and crack the exam!
