Is your Chemistry preparation for JEE failing you? At times, no matter how hard you try, the organic Chemistry nightmares keep coming back. We know that this is the time when your preparation has shifted gears to the battle-ready mode. There is much at stake with less than a month left to go for JEE Main 2020.
We keep hearing from students that they absolutely ‘hate’ Chemistry. Split between Organic, Inorganic, and Physical Chemistry, students often find it tedious to manage all three topics together. To crack the JEE Main exam and save a seat for yourself in one of the top engineering colleges of India, your chemistry must be excellent.
Preparation for JEE Level Chemistry
The best way to ensure that your JEE chemistry preparation is pretty simple. Read NCERT thoroughly. This book should always be your core focus. Other reference books will be handy for you only when you are well versed with NCERT.
To ace the Chemistry part of the JEE exam, it is also equally important to give many online mock tests and solve past year JEE question papers. This will help you to understand different topics in depth. When compared to Maths and Physics, Chemistry preparation is very different. It needs constant memorisation, visualisation and clarity of concepts. If your concepts are clear, then you can score well in the exam.
