Tips to score 80% marks in JEE Mains Physics

JEE Mains Exam is conducted twice a year and organised by National Testing Agency (NTA). The JEE Mains syllabus is strictly based on the CBSE syllabus. So Candidates can prepare for both exams simultaneously. Scoring more than 80% marks in JEE Mains Physics is a challenging task because the Physics section is one of the difficult segments of JEE Mains. However, the Physics subject is the most scoring segment if the JEE aspirants understand and practice well. Every question of Physics is based on concepts, so it is essential to have a deep understanding of concepts to solve the numerical questions. If you cannot understand the concepts, you will never be able to solve Physics questions. 

For scoring excellent marks in JEE Mains Physics, aspirants are advised to focus on problem-solving skills and conceptual learning. Those who score well in JEE Mains do things differently and with consistency. And for this, students will need to work on their speed, accuracy, silly mistakes, concepts building and problem-solving skills.

4. Solve Mock Tests

Mock tests assess your in-depth knowledge of Physics and help students evaluate their preparation, mistakes, and rank. Solving mock tests is one of the necessary parts, as practising mock tests provides an exam-like environment with insights into the type of questions asked. Furthermore, solving mock tests will give an idea of the difficulty level of the exam and the topics that you should concentrate more on.

5. Revise Thoroughly

One of the most significant contributors to successful preparation for JEE Mains is the revision strategy. Keep in mind to allow revision time while drafting a timetable to prepare Physics for JEE Mains. Understand all the concepts, formulas, and derivations and solve basic to advanced level questions while revising. 

Attempting mock tests, sample papers, previous year question papers and question banks will allow you to revise effectively and understand the type of questions asked in JEE Mains Physics. Moreover, take breaks in between to give rest to your mind and body.

Moreover, find a Physics mentor for your JEE preparation and clear your doubts in no time. Have a look at the teaching style of our Physics teachers:

6. Make Notes

While preparing for JEE Mains Physics, write down notes for every topic as it will turn out to be beneficial during your revision period. Write down diagrams, formulas, and shortcuts to help you remember the key points of every topic. Making notes keeps your mind involved and alert and clarifies your concepts. The notes you write down will be your revision tool for your final exam.

7. Practice Numerical Questions

"Practice makes a man perfect"; thus, solving multiple numerical problems will give an extra edge to your preparation. Therefore, every JEE aspirant should practice lots of numerical problems, which will help them get speed and accuracy and score more than 80% marks in JEE Mains. 

Overall, build your +1 and +2 Physics concepts, clear your doubts, revise religiously and lastly, get your doubts resolved with excellent mentors. Have a positive outlook towards your preparation, and you will score 80%+ in JEE Mains Physics.
