Important Topics for JEE Main 2023 to Secure a High Rank

The JEE Main, one of the prestigious and challenging exams for engineering aspirants, has lakhs of takers each year. And, the number keeps rising with every passing year, which makes the exam more competitive as well. Students taking this exam start preparing for it very early in their academic years, mostly from Class 11 or 12. But, they have no previous experience taking such an immensely competitive and tough exam. Hence, they make immature decisions while preparing for it. Often, they falter in their studies itself, and this affects their scores and ranking. Many times, though they have studied hard, they fail to succeed. This is because they are unaware of the importance of topics and chapters and the weightage they carry in the exam. Therefore, making it easy for you, we cite the important topics to focus on during the JEE Main preparation journey.

Employing a smart and pragmatic strategy while studying is the key to mastering each subject and acing this exam. True, the syllabus is vast, yet being well-acquainted with the weightage that each topic carries aids in securing high scores. Important topics are gauged by the previous years’ papers and their pattern. Therefore, we suggest you solve past year’s papers to get familiar with the type of questions and the overall exam structure as well.

This subject includes 21 chapters. Now, let us have a look at some important topics in Physics. We mention these below:

  • Oscillations And Waves
  • Modern Physics
  • Mechanics
  • Optics
  • Rotational Motion
  • Current Electricity
  • Heat and Thermodynamics
  • Electrostatics
  • Atoms And Nuclei
  • Magnetic Effect of Current and Magnetism

Do note that the chapter on Oscillations and Waves covers 10%, which is the most percentage of questions. Therefore, do concentrate on this topic while studying. You can then take up topics such as Measurement of errors and vectors, Unit and Dimensions, and others. Focus on understanding the concepts present in each topic and avoid rote learning. Doing this will certainly help in securing a good score in Physics.

Now, let us turn to Chemistry, which includes 30 chapters. This is further divided into Organic, Inorganic and Physical Chemistry. Since the number of chapters is high, it is important to be smart about distributing these in your prep. Some important topics to focus on are:

  • Equilibrium
  • Chemical Kinetics
  • d-block and f-block Elements (Transition Element)
  • p-block Elements
  • s-block Elements (Alkali and Alkaline earth Metals) and Hydrogen
  • Alkanes, Alkenes and Alkynes (Hydrocarbons)
  • Atomic Structure
  • Chemical Thermodynamics
  • Coordination Compound
  • Chemical Bonding and Molecular Structure
  • Some Basic Principles of Organic Chemistry
  • Organic Compounds Containing Oxygen
  • Biomolecules and Polymers

After completing these, you can take up the easier ones that include Surface Chemistry, Hydrogen, Some Basic Concepts in Chemistry, States of Matter, and others. Being thorough in the topics mentioned above will greatly propel you into the top scorers’ category in Chemistry.

Now for the subject that most students find daunting, and many even fear it—Mathematics. This is the most scoring subject and contains 25 chapters. If you master the topics in Mathematics, you automatically scale up the marks ladder. Let us see the topics that carry high weightage in this subject.

  • Integration
  • Coordinate Geometry
  • Differentiation
  • Probability
  • Trigonometry
  • Three Dimensional Geometry
  • Vector Algebra
  • Conic Sections
  • Sets, Relations and Functions
  • Straight Lines
  • Matrices and Determinants

When you’re done with the above topics, you can move on to simpler ones such as Heights and Distances, Application of Derivatives and Statistics, Inverse Trigonometry, and others. Also, make sure that you have rightly understood concepts and the application of formulas in Mathematics. You must know the important formulas to be able to solve problems speedily and accurately in this subject.
