Preparation Tips for JEE Main B.Arch Syllabus
 Divide your syllabus in order to study properly
 Most of the students make the usual mistake of studying everything in one go, without properly dividing the syllabus and making a proper study plan.
 If you have, on the other hand, made a proper study plan and are dedicatedly executing it, then you are more likely to successfully complete studying your syllabus.
 Make sure you prepare an effective plan, which is not only easy for you to follow but also covers everything that you need to study.
 Check your strengths and weaknesses from the syllabus
 When you are deciding which topic to give more focus on, then don’t go by how the weightage is divided among the topics.
 Regardless of the importance, it is important that you pay equal attention to all the topics that are given in your syllabus.
 More importantly, make sure that you cover your weak topics, even if they don’t carry as many points.
 This will make sure that you are appearing for the exam with your full potential and subsequently, potentially get you more marks.
 Previous question papers
 The Internet is full of references that you can take help with during planning your study or doing your actual study.
 Even if you are not provided with sample papers or previous exams’ papers, then you can get all of them online.
 Also, even if you are told about the important topics, it can never hurt to go over the previous papers, in case the examiner decides to add some questions from the previous years’ papers as well.
 You also get a proper idea about the way questions are asked – whether in a tricky way or just the way they are mentioned in your books and reference texts.
 How to approach the exam?
 The most important thing to keep in mind while appearing for the JEE Main B.Arch Examination is the strategy that you will use for passing.
 You have to keep in mind that most of the questions don’t have negative marking and are numbered.
 Make sure that you don’t waste all of your time answering the questions that are difficult; instead, complete the other sections which are easier to solve for you.
 It would be much better if you solve them first, then use all your remaining time you are finding difficult – this will make sure you will get your passing marks and even get that rank you want to achieve.
 A clear head and calm mind
 Mostly, students appearing for such competitions are out of their minds, worrying about the paper and how it will go and what will happen afterwards.
 This is what you need to avoid during this particular exam.
 JEE Main Architecture students should be able to have a clear head and calm mind, not just during you’re giving the exam but also before and after those three hours.
 A clear mind and a calm head would also make sure you are not stumped in the exam in the face of difficult questions.

Analysis of Various Sections of JEE Main B.Arch Exam
JEE Main B.Arch Mathematics Section
 JEE Main B.Arch paper includes Mathematics as the first section.
 The students are intimated the most by this section, right after the drawing question.
 This section is later divided into two parts, the one being MCQs and the other being NAT.
 However, this one is easier to crack, as the syllabus is the same as what you learned in the previous years, with more importance given to the class 11th syllabus, at least in this section.
 Many of the questions that are asked hail from the topics of distance or 3D coordinate geometry, as well as integration and derivation, among others, with the questions based on the first two topics being more as compared to the last two.
 It will contain a total of 25 questions.
 Out of them, 20 will be multiple choice questions, while the remaining five will be numerical value questions, also called Numerical Answer Type (NAT).
 This section is worth 100 marks, overall.
JEE Main B.Arch Aptitude Section
 Aptitude section in JEE Main Paper 2 is known to measure the students’ aptitude, as the name suggests.
 It is mostly easier and certainly even more so than the other sections, as the students claim
 It will have 50 questions in all; all of this section will carry 200 marks.
 Most of the questions revolve around mirror images, 3D structures or other similar figures, along with the locations of some places around the world, textures of things and a lot more.
 Aptitude section in JEE Main Paper 2 has negative marking, so the students are warned to proceed with a lot more thinking and caution.
JEE Main B.Arch Drawing Section
 This part is the last part of the paper and will contain drawing questions.
 Moreover, this section will be measuring the students’ skills in drawing and whether they can handle the pressure all the architecture year gives to the students.
 Most of the architecture studies rely on drawing and if the student’s drawing skills are not that up to the mark, then he or she won’t be able to crack the exam.
 The section only has a total of 3 questions, out of which you have to attempt 2 questions.
 They carry 100 marks in total and should be given more time and concentration.
 The drawing section is conducted offline.
 Also, the questions are mostly based on simple and basic topics of faces, gymnasts, cylinders and even school playgrounds, to name a few.
 Most of the students appearing for JEE Main 2020 B.Arch examination claim that this section stumps them the most.
JEE Main B.Arch Exam Day Guidelines
A variety of unforeseen and unwelcome things can happen on your examination day and trust me when I say this, you can’t afford going wrong in your JEE Main 2021 B.Arch examination.
 The entry gates of the exam centres will be opened around two and a half hours before the start of the exam.
 Students appearing for the exam should wisely reach their respective exam centres on time so as to avoid any hurriedness and latency, especially during the final moments before the evident exam.
 No entry will be permitted in the exam hall without JEE Main 2021 admit card along with identity proof
 Any electronics, including cell phones, calculators, watches with the calculators and pagers, books, notebooks, tablets, etc. are strictly not allowed to be carried inside the exam centre.

JEE Main 2021: Tips and Tricks for Attempting the Paper
Preparation is the prime way to crack competitive exams like JEE Main. But we should keep in mind that mere preparation is not enough. Knowing how to attempt the JEE Main paper is equally important. Below given are some general paper attempting tips that will help you to score good marks in JEE Main.
 Section Attempting Order:


 According to experts and past trend analysis, the idle paper attempting order should be in the following manner first Chemistry, followed by Maths and lastly Physics.
 The logic behind this is that Chemistry has more factbased questions and the level of logical questions rises from Chemistry to Maths to Physics.
 It is easier to solve factbased questions than solving questions with calculations.
 This way students can secure some marks before moving forward to the tougher parts.
 However, the students’ command in each subject also plays an important role here.

 Segregation of Questions:


 Segregation of questions in terms of their difficulty level is important.
 On average in the JEE Main paper, 30 questions are expected to be easy.
 This clearly means that 120 marks can be secured easily.
 Securing these 120 marks will help students to get themselves ranked among 2,00,000 candidates.

 Elimination:


 The trend analysis shows that (2025%) of questions in the Mathematics section can be solved using substitution and elimination methods.
 This means that the students need to substitute the answer from the multiple choices in the question and then eliminate the wrong answers.
 Also, this method saves time and gives the correct answer almost every time.
 In some other questions also, the answers can be eliminated by using logic.

 Solving Previous Year Papers:


 This tip is very much effective; solving JEE Main previous year papers and analyzing results.
 It will also help you to locate your strong and weak areas.
 Knowing your strength will help to understand which questions you should attempt first to secure some marks.

 Accuracy:


 It is always preferable to attempt questions of the topics you have great command over, rather than focusing on weaker areas.
 This way you will save your time and energy.
 Also, there is a higher chance of scoring good marks if there is a minimum negative marking.

 Don’t Over Attempt:


 Students need to keep in mind that the number of correct answers has more weightage than the number of attempted questions.
 Also, you must attempt only those questions which you are confident about.
 Solving extra questions only increases the chances of negative marking.
 Skipping the questions which seem too difficult will be a smart move to save time and it’ll also help you to dedicate more time to solve easier questions.

 Time management:

 After attempting the exam it is important to revise the attempted questions in order to locate possible errors.
 So, good time management will help you to save 15 min out of 3 hours to facilitate revision.

JEE Main Important Topics & Chapters: Weightagewise Breakdown and Trend Analysis
Last updated on February 6th, 2021
JEE Main Important Topics are of the utmost importance when it comes to JEE Main Preparations. At the same time, it is very hard to figure the important topics for JEE Main without proper data. That is why students must go the smarter and easier way that requires a strong commitment.
 Every chapter in the JEE Main Syllabus is assigned a weightage of marks.
 This weightage is not fixed according to any official guidebook by JEE Main conducting authority.
 But, it is visible according to the question pattern followed in previous year JEE Main exams.
 Now you have to break down all these chapters in 34 categories, such as most JEE Main important topics that carry a high weightage of marks, JEE Main important topics that carry an average weightage of marks and then JEE Main important topics that hold the minimum weightage of marks.
 Doing this will bring your attention to those topics which are crucial for the examination. You can also segregate the topics of various sections in accordance with the difficulty level.
 This will also help you figure the most important topics for JEE Main 2021.
JEE Main is one of the toughest competitive exams for engineering aspirants. Learning the formulae, chemical equations, steps for some questions and other rotting sections can never guarantee a great score in JEE Main. In this article, we are going to discuss the most important chapters for the JEE Main 2021 January session.
If we look at the JEE Main exam pattern, all the sections of Paper1 will have 25 questions each and will be of 100 marks each. Out of the 25 questions, 5 will be Numerical Value Based Questions, which will have no negative marking. However, the JEE Main 2021 syllabus has not been released yet but we can analyse the important topics based on the JEE Main syllabus for 2020. Let us divide the JEE Main Important topics into the same three sections i.e. Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.

Basic Tips for JEE Main Important Topics
 Maintain Speed –
 With better practice, students will build speed in core topics.
 This speed must be maintained during the examination as well.
 Since there is no sectional timing, ensure that you solve enough questions from each section within 1 and a half hour (90 minutes) such that the score reaches the expected cutoff.
 Topicwise Mock Tests –
 Solving mock tests and practice papers can actually tell what level of preparation is needed.
 Thus also enables the candidates to know the level of exam and their own preparation against it so they can work on their weak topics.
 Nowadays a deep analysis of mocks is easily available online, to understand accuracy, strong topics, timeconsuming topics and weak topics.
 Accurate Answers –
 If you follow the speed rule in the first 90 minutes, follow the accuracy rule in the next 90 minutes.
 Instead of solving maximum questions, try solving what you can, but with accurate answers.
 This will help build your score and probably help in overall rank considered for IITs.
 Revise every week –
 Organise your study time and revision time.
 Revision ensures you are on track with the topics that are not under purview but must be worked on.
 Take regular breaks and practice previous years’ JEE Main question papers.
 Revise the topics every alternate day or at least twice a week.
