However, during their preparation, most students often overlook chemistry or they leave it for the last minute. This is because the syllabus is vast, and students are confused about which topics to study.

Importance of Solving JEE Main Chemistry Question Paper 2016

After going through the JEE Main syllabus, you must practise thoroughly. Use the previous year’s question papers, mock tests, and sample papers. By doing so, you can:

  • Identify which chapters hold the highest weightage, and which chapters are rarely touched
  • Decide the topics that you need to focus on
  • If you have a firm grasp on some of the topics, solve as many questions as you can, and see if you can clear the cut-off
  • If you don’t have a good understanding of a topic and it has very low weightage, you can skip it entirely. This will help you save time
  • JEE Main mock tests are helpful, but it is still worthwhile to solve the official papers to gauge the difficulty level of the exam

JEE Main Chemistry Paper Preparation Tips

1) Memorising certain parts of the subject like the periodic table, atomic weights of elements, atomic numbers of elements etc. is necessary while preparing for the chemistry section. This saves a lot of time while writing the exam and increases the scope of scoring well to a great extent.

2) Reading from several books is not recommended for JEE Main Chemistry. All students should stick to some good books and use them for their preparation. Referring to multiple books results in wastage of time and creates confusion.

3) Being regular with the preparation is a very important aspect of studying Chemistry for JEE Main. As the subject is quite vast and highly theoretical, students should study for it regularly so as to keep the flow.

4) Candidates should be well versed with the concepts given in NCERT. Many questions appearing in the JEE Main question paper are straightforward and based only on facts elucidated in the NCERT textbooks.
