*Note: From 2020, JEE Main will have only 25 questions from each subject. So, the number of questions asked from any of these chapters can be changed. 
Effective tips that can help students to achieve success in IIT-JEE exams:
  • JEE Main is designed to test how well students have grasped the topics and how they apply the understanding to solve a given set of problems. Therefore, you must grill yourself into the basics until all your fundamentals are very clear. 
  • Students should be very careful while choosing any study material or books for themselves. Use the ones that suit your learning style so that you can score more by indexing topics in order of priority or marks weightage they carry in JEE Main.

  • Revise, practice using previous year papers of IIT JEE, check solutions from solved papers, seek help where needed and revise and practice again. The more you practice, the more perfection you will gain.
  • Time management is important in JEE Main. So, while solving model JEE question papers, keep an eye on your watch too. If solving a particular question is taking too much time, you should quickly move to the next without wasting your time and effort.
Try to plan your daily schedule in a way that you get the time for some relaxation. Adequate sleep of at least 6-7 hours a day is important otherwise your mind will not be conducive for studies the next day.
