Preparation Strategy For JEE Main Chemistry

In this article yo can know the preparation strategy for JEE  Main Chemistry. JEE Main syllabus is similar to class 11th and 12th physics, chemistry, and mathematics syllabus.In JEE Main 30% questions are easy, 60% of questions are medium level and 10% is tough. JEE Main consists of three subject physics, chemistry and mathematics. 33% Occupies by chemistry in JEE Main, it is equally important as others (physics and mathematics).

I saw in many times lots of students give their main focus to Physics and mathematics because students think they are more difficult as compared to chemistry this tendency is not good and cost them in their JEE Main ranks.

Every subject is important for scoring well in JEE Main, so we can’t be left any subject for only one reason it has to be easier compared to math’s/physics.

As you know scoring more than 100 in a particular section is not too easy but you can make it easy by following the tips.

Preparation Strategy for JEE Main Chemistry Section

Prepare your own notesPreparation Strategy

Revision gives you more help, but this is possible when you have a habit of making your own notes; whenever you study a chapter or topics. Prepare two notebooks. One is writing for notes of a theoretical concept and other is for writing formulae which are helpful whenever you are solving the numerical question. If you make your notes that they are helpful; when you are preparing for the exam because the notes written by you.


Make a habit of revision.  Start your revision time two to three months before the exam. In your revision session never use a mobile phone. I saw many people are nail-biting at their revision time or study time, don’t do it.

Focus on your speed and accuracy

The speed with accuracy is the main aspect for scoring well in JEE Main. Both are mattered. Accuracy is more important than speed but you can’t ignore speed because for chemistry section it is more important because as we know you can complete your JEE Main chemistry section within 30 minutes so you need speed; if you have speed with accuracy you can crack your chemistry section. There is also negative marking so accuracy safe you from the negative marking.

Focus on weightage topics

In inorganic chemistry chemical bonding is most important then p block, Co-ordination Compounds, s block, hydrogen at last d and f block elements are important. But we can’t say that you should only read these topic for qualifying chemistry section in JEE Main section but the most important one is also some exception are there; So go through the syllabus with thoroughly. If you would go with this you can score well in your JEE Main. Stereochemistry and functional analysis are among the most important topics from organic chemistry. In physical chemistry, many questions are formed on titration and stoichiometry. Other important topics include electrochemistry, mole concept, and chemical equilibrium.

Now come to the weightage wise topics. NCERT Books is the most recommended book for JEE Main. Given below are the detailed information and analysis from chemistry syllabus.

It will be defined in three terms:

  • Physical Chemistry
  • Inorganic Chemistry
  • Organic Chemistry
