JEE Main 2018 Syllabus is derived 45% from class 11 syllabus and 55 % from class 12 syllabus as prescribed by the NCERT. All the basic concepts and formulas are written in the simple and clear language in the NCERT books prescribed by CBSE. JEE Main 2018 Syllabus is divided into 3 sections JEE Main Physics, JEE Main Chemistry and JEE Main Mathematics syllabus. The syllabus changes according to that prescribed by CBSE board.
The best way to clear and complete the JEE Main 2018 syllabus is by consistent practice. Slow and consistent practice brings accuracy and leads to timesaving.
JEE Main 2018 Syllabus : Physics
There will be two sections in JEE Main physics exam.
Section 1 is designed from the theoretical concept and section B is designed from the practical activity manual. Candidates must be familiar with the numeric theoretical observation and practical based observations. The implementation of the activity based numerical has made the section though.
Section A: JEE main 2018 syllabus from class 11 and class 12
 Physics and Measurement
 Kinematics
 Laws of Motion
 Work, Energy, and Power

The syllabus involves testing the activity based knowledge. Candidate just needs to revise all the activities they have done in class 11 and class 12. It is all designed on the basis of the class 12 syllabus. Activity based question can come from Young’s modulus, heat capacity, the viscosity of liquids, etc.

Preparation tips
Well the best way to prepare for the JEE Main exam is consistent practice. The performance can be enhanced by dedicating more hours to selfstudy. Some handy tips are:
 Make a time table for selfstudy
 Start preparing immediately after class 10 boards is over.
 Start working within the time frame.
 Take help from the seniors in problem solving.
 Make notes of all the important topics, especially which appear lengthy.
 Take breaks to keep yourself fresh.
 Analyse your strengths.
 Subscribe to a newsletter to get all updates about the paper trends.
Never get disheartened during practice time. Keep coming back for the practice.
