However, those who are yet to start, this is the right time. To begin with, decide whether you want to join a coaching institute for better guidance or self study. Secondly, make a well strategized study plan on how to prepare and score above 300 in JEE Main. When enrolling into a coaching institute, you will be provided with a time table but when self studying, you will have to stricture your preparation plan to yield above 300 in JEE Main. 

300 is a very competitive score and not exactly impossible but difficult to bag with a very easy to go exam preparation. Only a well-planned strategy which is followed properly and diligently can help you yield better results and even score 300 to 350 in JEE Main. In this article, we will share some strategies and tips on how to score above 300 in JEE Main 2020. 

Plan to score above 300 in JEE Main 2020

After completing class 10th, engineering enthusiasts are very excited about studying science and getting into the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) through JEE Main and JEE Advanced. They begin the year with high hopes but the challenges faced by most of them in understanding the concepts of physics, chemistry and math pull them down. But the time they reach to the final exam to get into class 12TH, clearing the home exams is their only target. Resulting in a very less percentage of students who are actually prepared for class 12th and JEE. 

A very few are left who are still enthusiastic and manage to get into class 12th. Sadly, these few students also lose hope by the end of the year and only focus of boards. 

Reading further, you will get some important subject wise pointers and weekly plans on how to prepare for board and JEE together. 

Weekly plan for Physics 

Here is an eight week plan on how to cover topics in Physics for class 11 and 12.  Among these, a few critical topics are Rotation, Gravitation and Centre of Mass. From Rotation and Centre of Mass, movement inertia is the major point of focus. This is because, questions from this topic are picked every year in the JEE Main question paper. Take a look at the weekly plan below: 

Week  Topic to target  
Week 1 Kinematics, Projectile motion, Relative velocity
Week 2 Error Analysis, Ray optics,  Experimental Physics 
Week 3 Laws of motion, Friction, Circular motion 
Week 4 Work, power and energy, Centre of Mass and Collisions 
Week 5 Rotation and Gravitation 
Week 6 Elasticity. Surface tension, Velocity 
Week 7 Thermal Physics
Week 8 Waves and Sound, SHM


Weekly plan for Chemistry

Here is an eight week plan on how to cover topics in Chemistry for class 11 and 12. Students who master chemistry for JEE Main can actually score high and be eligible to sit for JEE Advanced. Among the enlisted topics, general organic chemistry is a critical one as almost 40 to 50 % questions in chemistry for JEE are from this topic. Resonance, mesmeric effect and inductive effect are some of the important sub topics of general organic chemistry.  In addition, chemical bonding is also important and forms the basis of all inorganic chemistry. Every year, 2 to 3 question are picked from this topic also. Take a look at the weekly plan below:

Week  Topic to target  
Week 1 Mole concept, Redox reaction 
Week 2 Atomic structure and periodic properties 
Week 3 Chemical Bonding Hydrogen, S-Block
Week 4 Gaseous state and solid state 
Week 5 Thermodynamics and Thermochemistry
Week 6 Equilibrium 
Week 7 General organic chemistry
Week 8 Hydrocarbons 


Weekly plan for Mathematics 

Here is an eight week plan on how to cover topics in Mathematics for class 11 and 12. Most important topics in maths for JEE Main include straight lines and circles. 10 to 20 % which is almost 3 to 4 questions are picked from these topics in the maths sections of JEE Main question paper. Nest crucial topic to be focused on is progression. Take a look at the weekly plan below:

Week  Topic to target  
Week 1 Sets, Relations and Functions 
Week 2 Limits, Derivatives 
Week 3 Complex numbers 
Week 4 Quadratic equations 
Week 5 Straight lines, circles 
Week 6 Parabola, Ellipse, Hyperbola
Week 7 Progression and Binomial theorem, 
Week 8 Trigonometry, Permutations and Combination
