Here are a few tips from Ramesh Batlish, FITJEE coaching institute. He tells you what your focus areas should be for the IIT-JEE Advanced exam.
- More attention should be paid to topics like Vectors and 3D than Probability or Indefinite.
- Algebra can be made easier if you have the ability to picture functions such as graphs and are good at applying vertical and horizontal origin shifts as zeroes of functions and other specific values can be done in much less time using these techniques.
- Permutation— Combination and Probability is an important topic in Algebra. You need to be thorough with the basics of Bayes theorem, derangements and various ways of distribution, taking care of cases where objects are identical and when they are not.
- Integral Calculus can be simplified using tricks and keeping in mind some basic varieties of integrable functions. Remembering the properties and applying them wisely saves a lot of time.
- Coordinate Geometry requires a knowledge of the parametric forms of various conic sections and an ability to convert the other, tougher ones to these basic forms and then interpret the solutions accordingly.
- Practice the most relevant numerical daily to develop speed. Pay special attention to topics like Mole concept, Chemical Equilibrium, and Electrochemistry.
- In Inorganic Chemistry, most of the questions which are asked are really conceptual, concerned with structures, processes, and applications. Special attention should be given to topics like Chemical Bonding and Coordination Chemistry.
- One must try to concentrate on other scoring topics to ensure a better performance, for example, Optics, Electricity, and Magnetism, etc.
- According to the general trends, Mechanics and Electricity and Magnetism are the most important topics in terms of the number of questions asked in JEE of previous years.
- Thermodynamics is important from the terms of both Physics and Chemistry so concentrate on that as well. It is wise to cover Wave Optics first in ‘Optics’ topic. The reason is that the portion is smaller compared to Ray Optics, thus easier to cover.
