JEE Advanced is round the corner and when it comes to prepare in small span of time it is inevitable fact that you are not up with very much time to go through the entire syllabus. The first thing should be to what plan so that one can prepare in time by putting minimum effort and maximize the score. Joint Entrance Examination-Advanced which was previously known as the Indian Institute of Technology Joint entrance exam, IIT-JEE is an entrance exam is held every year in India. In the supervision of Joint Admission Board’s guidance, it is organized by one of the seven IITs including IIT Roorkee, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur, IIT Bombay, IIT Madras and IIT Guwahati. It is the entry and initial requirement to get the admission in any of the IITs, IISERs, IISc. The candidates can also apply to the abroad universities using this JEE Advanced score. This examination has very low success rate around 1.95% which is why every year around 4-5 lacs applicant try their best out to succeed this one of the India’s toughest and prestigious exams. Well, there is not a single strategy to prepare for this exam as everyone is different in terms of basics they are known as well as their caliber but to excel in this exam one should be very optimistic as well as smart approached. Here we going to list down some of the choosiest topics of Physics section which every year is asked and one should pay special emphasis while preparing for the abovementioned. Scoring in physics needs a smart approach along with a consistent practice of mock tests and previous year questions.
It should be noted that JEE Advanced is the next stage of JEE mains where a candidate can attempt only after passing JEE mains first. However, the collaborative preparation of the JEE mains and JEE advanced stage should be started as early as 11 itself but there is a minute change of syllabus of JEE Advanced from JEE Mains. It is strictly advised to thoroughly go through the syllabus beforehand so that there is a glimpse of strategy in mind to prepare for the same. Coming to the physics topics The JEE advanced physics syllabus is divided into different units which are as follows:
- Modern Physics (Weightage of around 11%)
- Heat and Thermodynamics (Weightage of around 9%)
- Electrostatics (Weightage of around 8%)
- Optics (Weightage of around 9%)
- Waves and oscillations (Weightage of around 8%)
- System of Particles and Rotational Mechanics (Weightage of around 9%)
- EMI and AC (Weightage of around 5%)
- Current Electricity (Weightage of around 6%)
- Magnetics (Weightage of around 8%)
- Laws of motion (Weightage of around 6%)
- Solids and Fluids (Weightage of around 4%)
- Work, energy and power (Weightage of around 4%)
- Gravitation (Weightage of around 3%)
- Kinematics (Weightage of around 4%)
- Units, Dimensions, Errors and experiments (Weightage of around 6%)
Following top ten trending topics of physics which is being asked almost every year.
