    Tips to revise the JEE Main syllabus in last one week

    JEE Main 2018 is just less than 6 days away. Students have already completed the syllabus of all three subjects namely Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. In this short time, students should revise what they have learnt in one or two-year preparation. We know that all of us need revision before appearing for the final examination. Revision guarantees the process of recalling any formula and concept while writing the exam. Let us study about the subject-wise strategies to revise the complete syllabus of JEE Main 2018.


    Mathematics is a very scoring subject in any engineering entrance exam but also need more practice than the other two subjects. Students can devote 3 days out of 6 days for this subject. To revise Mathematics syllabus, students can follow the tips given below:

    1. Don’t try to study any new topic or chapter.
    2. If you get confused while solving any question of Practice paper or previous years’ paper, then study the complete concept. Thereafter, again solve the question.
    3. Focus only on the important topics like properties of definite integral (especially odd-even property), linear and homogenous differential equation, limits, reduction formula, Leibnitz rule, Bayer’s theorem, conditional probability, classical probability, inverse, periodic and composite function etc.
    4. Revise from the chapter notes prepared instead of books.
    5. Attempt maximum number of practice papers to boost up your speed and accuracy.


    After completing Mathematics syllabus, students will have three days left for the examination. Out of these three days they can revise Physics syllabus in two days. Physics subject is a combination of theory and numerical part. But questions are being asked from numerical part more than theory part in JEE Main. Therefore, students should try to devote more time for numerical part than the theory.

    Follow the tips given below to revise the syllabus of Physics subject for JEE Main 2018:

    1. Focus on understanding the concepts than the rote learning.
    2. Don’t study any new topic or concept.
    3. Don’t try to study from the notes prepared by someone else.
    4. Don’t miss the important topics like logic gates, torque, angular momentum, conservation of linear and angular momentum, heat transfer, relation between Cp and Cv, Calorimetry, units and measurements, relative velocity, Photo-electric effect, Bohr’s model, Young’s double slit experiment, electromotive force, electromagnetic induction, RL, RC, LC and RCL circuit, Kirchhoff’s Law, electrical instruments, optics etc.


    Now, students will have only one day left which is very important as they have to revise the complete syllabus of Chemistry. In Chemistry subject theory part is more important than the numerical part. Follow the given below tips to revise Chemistry Syllabus.

    1. Revise the periodic table first. It should be your finger tips.
    2. Don’t try to study any new topic or chapter.
    3. Leave the topics where you get confused as this will only waste your time.
    4. Revise only from the revision notes.
    5. Study name reactions in Organic Chemistry like Wurtz reaction, Corey-House synthesis, Cannizzaro reaction, Hoffman bromamide synthesis, Reimer-Tiemann reaction, Birch reduction etc.
    6. Students should focus only on the important topics like Valence shell electron pair repulsion (VSEPR) theory, Molecular orbital (MO) theory, Crystal Field Theory, hybridisation, bond order, dipole moment, reactivity series, Gibbs energy, entropy, electrophile, nucleophile, reagents, types of reactions, acidity, basicity, isomerism, resonance structure and p-block elements etc.


    In the remaining 6 days, students should devote more time for Mathematics subject as this subject needs practice, then they can go for Physics subject. Thereafter, students can revise Chemistry subject. Students should not study any new topic or chapter in any subject. We have given the above tips on the very basic principle of study (M:P:C=3:2:1) and as per the examination pattern and requirement of the subject.
