The National Testing Agency (NTA) has reopened JEE Main 2020 application correction window until July 31. JEE Main 2020 new dates have been announced by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). The exam will now be conducted on September 1-6, revealed a tweet by the Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ whereas NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) is an entrance exam held by the National Testing Agency (NTA) in India for those students who are aiming for medical and dental courses like MBBS, BDS, BHMS, BAMS, BVSc, AH & BUMS at the graduate and post-graduate levels. With lockdown lifted in some parts of the country, we do see a ray of hope and wish for these troubled times to end. The National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2020 that was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak will now be conducted on September 13, 2020, as announced by the HRD Minister.

Strategic Preparation of Physics for JEE and NEET
- The importance of physics for success in entrance examinations like NEET and JEE can never be overemphasized.
- On the one hand, it is the subject which can boost your rank up in the JEE examination and on the other hand it is the subject which can save you from elimination in the NEET examination. ‘
- In NEET examination, Physics carries 25% marks with its 45 questions out of a total of 180 questions. While IIT JEE contains 25 questions from physics out of a total of 75 questions. So Physics has 33% weightage for IIT JEE Mains.
- The selection of study material is extremely important to keep the preparation in the right direction.
- Study material provided by different institutions and coaching is particularly useful if it is properly followed in that particular institution or coaching. But standard books can’t be replaced by any study material and they are important for systematic concept building and proper illustration.
Few important books
|Concepts of Physics Vol.1 and 2 by H.C.Verma.|
|Understanding Physics total 5 Volumes by D.C.Pandey|
|Fundamental of Physics by Resnick, Halliday and Walker.|
|University Physics by Sears and Zemansky.|
|(A) Objective Physics for NEET 2 volumes by D.C.Pandey|
|(B) Physics MCQ by Deb Mukherjee.|
Important chapters for NEET:-
|Wave and Geometrical Optics|
|Heat and Thermodynamics|
Important chapters for IIT JEE:-
|S.H.M. and Waves|
|Heat and Thermodynamics|
Preparation Tips and Strategy:-
Part 1:- Initial Preparations
A good start for JEE Physics takes you a lot forward in terms of JEE and NEET Preparation.
First of all, Your basics have to be strong and you have to make your learning advanced in any subject, not just in physics. This will helps you later when you actually enter in your 11th (if you are in 10th or 9th), but if you are in your 11th /coming to 11th class, then start your preparation in the summer itself by rigorously completing the following chapters by the beginning of your 11th class.
3.)Errors and Physical Measurements
If you hadn’t taken any type of coaching before 11th class, then these topics in physics would be a great starter for your JEE Preparation for Physics, else complete these topics also
1.)Newton’s Law of Motion
3.)Work, Power and Energy
These chapters itself will make most of your summer, Since I said a “rigorous” preparation, Books will also be of that order.
To complete this preparation, You need to do HC Verma back end exercises without seeing solutions and you should be able to solve. Arihant is also a good series to use for physics.
Part 2 :- First Year Strategies
Most/All of the first year syllabus for JEE and NEET would be with mechanics. One has to be really strong at mechanics as it is the scoring subject for a general paper.
Remaining we would be dealing with heat and thermodynamics. Questions are basically easy but tricky sometimes. So deal with them with care.
In the first year, the only tough/extremely fundamental topic is Rigid Body Dynamics. For this Chapter, You need to be strong in a circular motion. After this comes Fluid Mechanics which is also tough but not to that extent.
Be strong at Gravitation basics. Even though this topic is not used much at the exam, this helps you in Second year-Electrostatics.
Part 3 :- Second Year Strategies
Here mostly you won’t see any mechanics chapter but you would see electromagnetism, optics, current electricity, modern physics, and electronics.
Electronics is the whole set of chapters of semiconductors, EM Waves, etc. This is only for the JEE Mains and NEET. These are easy in one sense like you have to just listen to the class, rest can be done by you. Much preparation is not necessary. But NCERT Reading is a must for this portion.
Current Electricity is the easiest of all these.
Coming to optics, Optics is not that easy as it seems and it does have a lot of concepts, and applying them in the right way is necessary. Imagining it is necessary. Drawing Ray diagrams would help you a lot.
Electromagnetism—The Most Important Chapter for JEE. This chapter has several concepts, formulas but without the basics, you will literally do NOTHING! So pay some real and serious focus on this chapter.
Please don’t do as silly as procrastination. Complete your reading and exercises on time and do prepare a timetable for yourself. Don’t Use Social Media. Never feel shy to ask doubts and you can also use some educational websites to clarify your doubts.
Many people solving is IE Irodov, Krotov, and other books to solve JEE Physics. It is not necessary to use these books as most of the concepts and problems used in these books are out of the JEE Syllabus, but if you really have that time to solve all these solve these after doing the standard books and their problems.
There are a few tips for preparation:-
- Never avoid derivation of equations and results.
- Make short notes for each chapter containing important equations and results.
- Make a convention for grading the problems that you solve as it will help you in effective revision.
- Always give more importance to revision.
- Give a lot of examinations.
