Given the expansive syllabus of JEE entrance exam and limited time available to candidates juggling between their regular school exams and entrance exams, it becomes important to create a priority list of units, chapters and topics. This leads to questions like:

What should I study first? What are the important topics in Chemistry?Which topics are the most scoring topics in Physics? What Maths chapters should I practice more for the exam?

To help you with prioritizing topics and chapters for your exam preparation, our subject matter experts have created a list of important chapters and topics therein to cover the majority of questions in the JEE exams.
