Physics – How to prepare

  • As the standard of the exam is that of Higher Secondary level (10+2), the paper will be based on the syllabus of NCERT books of Class XI and Class XII. Physics is all about derivations and laws that were concluded through the experiments performed by the scholars.
  • You must focus on the topics mentioned in the syllabus.
  • Prepare a separate notebook for the subject to maintain the notes for each chapter and do write the formulas at the back of notebook for reference.
  • Don’t just learn the formulas, it is important to know how the formulae resulted out of a derivation.
  • Once you have thoroughly studied the formulas, move onto the numerical portion and solve them on regular basis.

Summary: Primarily, make your concepts strong by studying the theoretical portion and then cover the numerical part to attain accuracy. Target the important and frequently asked questions which you can extract from previous year papers.

Chemistry – How to prepare?

  • The exam covers the topics given from NCERT books of Class XI and XII. Chemistry revolves around the chemical reactions happening around us and you must know how to form the chemical equations with stable balancing and forming accurate compounds.
  • This subject requires lots of practice and in some topics, like inorganic chemistry, you might have to cram the chemical equations.
  • Organic Chemistry is the scoring part and interesting one, therefore, don’t miss out mastering this portion.
  • Physical Chemistry is the easiest section under chemistry as generally the topics asked from this portion is familiar to us as we have been studying them since elementary school. But there are some topics like Thermodynamics and Equilibrium which are regarded as the toughest topics by the medical students. Give more time to both the units.

Summary: Prepare a separate notebook for Physical chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Inorganic Chemistry and dedicate maximum time to the toughest topics.

Mathematics – How to prepare

  • Aspirants can polish this section by practicing the questions from the Class XI and XII NCERT Books.
  • They must strive for accuracy and speed as calculations are quite long and could drain away your time and you will be left with little time for other sections.
  • Focus on the following topics-
    • Integration
    • Differentiation
    • Limits and Derivatives
    • Matrices and Determinants
    • Statistics
    • Binomial Theorem
