The physics work of the Joint Engineering Examination (JEE) Main is considered to be one of the most demanding sections for many aspirants. Many of the questions asked in the exam can be solved by directly applying one or more underlying concepts. Therefore, it is very important to understand the strategies in order to apply physical concepts effectively and quickly. To help students get good grades, here are some key topics, important books, and strategies to follow before and during the exam.
Compulsory chapter in physics
In physics, chapters such as work, energy and power, center of gravity and rotational motion make up the bulk of the mechanical part. If a student has an in-depth understanding of these topics, chapters such as kinematics can be viewed as moderately important. Topics such as radiation optics, limit values and measurements as well as modern physics are relatively small and can be revised very quickly. Electrostatics and electric electricity form an integral part of the Grade 12 curriculum and should not be overlooked. Some of the remaining issues of great importance are fluid mechanics, the properties of matter, and thermodynamics.

JEE Main 2022 preparation tips for physics
Write effective notes during class
A great understanding of the underlying concepts coupled with effective class notes are the hallmarks of a high-scoring student. The human brain can only store a fraction of the information, and given the vast size of the JEE curriculum, it is very likely that a concept will be forgotten or misapplied. Students need to jot down all relevant details on each topic in class and make good use of the notes in last minute preparation.
Practice more numerical problems
Practicing more numerical problems strengthens the application of a concept and reduces the likelihood of inaccurate application. With JEE Main everything revolves around the direct application of the concepts conveyed in the class. Excessive learning must be avoided and the focus should be on learning to apply the laws of physics rather than remembering facts.
Familiarize yourself with a wide variety of problems
The variety of problems solved during practice sessions correlates strongly with a student’s speed at solving an invisible problem. As a student has seen more diverse problems, he / she will be familiar with more situations in which a particular concept may or may not be applied. Thus, working on a wide variety of problems increases the likelihood that unseen problems will be resolved.
Solve the questionnaires from previous years
Solving assignments up to a decade in the past can help students anticipate the questions that will be asked on the exam. Many students enjoy recognizing patterns between previously asked questions and assessing the importance of each topic. This also helps to a great extent in dealing with the most important topics before the exam.
Deriving the formulas during the exam is almost always a bad idea and will only result in a waste of time. Students need to recognize and memorize key formulas in order to solve problems quickly.
Analyze your test tests
Whenever you try a mock test, you have to analyze it for errors and potential for improvement on the same day. As you prepare for the exam, keep a book and write down all of your doubts and mistakes. In this book, write down solutions to your doubts and mistakes. The doubts are mainly due to a lack of knowledge or misunderstandings. If you have misunderstandings, you have to work even harder as you first unlearn the misunderstandings and then relearn the correct concept.

JEE Main 2022 Physics Exam Strategies
To start, flip through the paper and choose questions that are easiest for you to solve. Of these questions, only fill in the answers on the OMR sheet for those questions of which you are very sure. Never make any assumptions during the exam. It always leads to negative grades and hinders the chances of getting a good score.
Always allocate less than an hour to the physics part. This will save you a lot of time on the longer sections of paper. Don’t let the exam environment overwhelm you. Always stay relaxed and free from panic.
