How to master in Physics for IIT JEE examination


The IIT JEE Main 2020 examination will be conducted in 2 sessions. The candidates enrolling for January and April sessions should take both the sessions seriously to get into the top engineering colleges. Physics is a scoring subject in the IIT JEE Main examination but at the same time, it needs practice and preparation due to the vast syllabus. It is really important to master in Physics with important formulae and solving multiple problems.


Here are some tips by Eduwhere to do well in the Physics section for IIT JEE exams.

Get going with the basics


Scoring well in Physics is all about being well-versed with the concepts of every chapter. How to prepare well when it comes to concepts? Even if you are preparing for the class 12 syllabus for your board exams, omitting the class 11 syllabus can be dangerous. The candidates should prepare well with the class 11 & 12 books both. To get your basics cleared, concentrate well on the entire syllabus from class 11 of Physics.


Never miss out important formulae


Physics is all about dealing with formulae. Without knowing the formulae and the concepts of derivation, you won’t be able to solve problems related to the same. Don’t mug up the formulae, instead, try to understand and learn them well. While you are preparing, try to solve problems without looking at the formulae. Try to learn formulae and revise them daily, write them down on sticky notes and paste them at your study area. Using flashcards is always a great practice to learn and implement formulae in the problems. 


Approach for solving problems


In the IIT JEE Main exams, the candidates shall come across MCQs. Questions related to the theory can be learnt and needs no extra time whereas solving problems is time taking. Hence it is always a good practice to read the entire chapter and understand it well before jumping to solving the problems. 


Important topics from Physics section


Mechanics including subtopics like Newton’s Law of Motion, Bernoulli’s theorem etc is a conceptual topic that needs understanding and proper implementation.


Electrostatics is a lengthy and scoring topic in Physics with around 4-5 questions asked.


Current Electricity is comparatively a small topic but this is a scoring one altogether. 


Oscillations & Waves is an easy chapter with basic concepts that should be focused on.


Modern Physics consists of topics like radioactive decay of substances, nuclear fission and fusion, X-rays, Bohr’s model etc which are important should be given extra attention.


Thermodynamics is a vast and important topic in Chemistry as well as Physics. One cannot afford to skip this chapter if IIT JEE is considered.


Important Books to Refer


NCERT books


HC Verma for Physics


DC Pandey


IE Irodiv for problems


Resnick, Halliday & Walker physics


With all these tips for Physics preparation, you can do pretty well in IIT JEE Main exams.


Good Luck from Team Eduwhere!
