Important Topics for IIT JEE Physics – Must Be Thorough!

There are around 20 units which will be a part of your JEE examination. Each of these units has a comprehensive list of subtopics. However, you can still aim for a good score by being smart and applying certain hacks to your preparation.

Depending on the number of appearances, weightage of marks, a  list of topics or type of questions has been accumulated below. These are sure shot types of questions and therefore guarantees marks! The topics listed are in decreasing order of weightage of marks based on previous year’s pattern.

  • Current Electricity
  • Electrostatics
  • Ray Optics
  • Magnetism
  • Heat and Thermodynamics
  • Work Energy and Power
  • Wave Optics
  • Simple Harmonic Motion
  • Centre of Mass, Momentum
  • Wave Motion
  • Semiconductors and Electronic Devices
  • Newton’s Laws of Motion
  • Rotational Dynamics
  • Dimensional Analysis and Errors
  • Fluid Mechanics

Remember that although there are certain topics that may carry less weightage based on previous year patterns, you never know when this pattern may change. So make sure that you do not skip any unit.
