    Physics: Units and Dimensions, Errors, Experiments, Kinematics, Ray Optics, Wave Optics, Heat and Thermodynamics, Magnetism, Magnetic effects of current and Modern Physics.

    Mathematics: Matrices & Determinants, Vectors, 3-D Coordinate Geometry, Permutation & Combination, Indefinite Integrals, Definite Integrals & Area under the Curve, Quadratic Equations, Inequalities, Progressions, Conic section.

    Chemistry: General Organic Chemistry + Functional Group I, Organic Chemistry – Functional Group II, Chemistry of Representative Elements, Atomic Structure and Classification, Chemical Bonding, States of Matter

    3. Cover important topic first and revise them regularly:

    All students should try to cover important topics first and revise them regularly. More than 75% of the questions are being asked from these topics. Students should not devote more time in learning those topics which carries few questions but students should try to learn important topics so that they can attempt more questions in the examination and score good marks.
