- Rely on NCERT book for Inorganic & Organic Chemistry
Whether a JEE Main exam or the CBSE Class XII Board Exam, NCERT books are best in every situation. Practising from NCERT increases your chance to score 100+ marks in Chemistry as it contains standard questions that are explained well in very easy language.
4. Try to solve each question within 1 minute 30 seconds
No amount of hard work will be enough to score high in JEE exam if you are not solving a question within the prescribed time frame. You can easily solve the questions related to organic & inorganic Chemistry within the given time bracket.
- Practice by writing down the formulas, derivations & conversions
Physical Chemistry- It contains the numerical part as well as the derivations, therefore practising through writing them down is the easiest way to master them.
Organic Chemistry- At times, conversions become lengthy while you are solving them mentally, but practicing them in writing will help you solve not only faster but in an accurate manner.
Inorganic Chemistry- This section is all about complex equations and characteristics of elements in the periodic table. Writing them down daily will help you have a strong grip over them.
There are countless tips to score 100+ marks in JEE Main Chemistry but in the end, it’s all down to your mindset while solving the exam.
