Clearing the JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) is the dream of every engineering aspirant. Clearing it with good scores opens a pathway to get admission to well-reputed engineering colleges in India. There are two stages of Examination. JEE Mains and JEE Advance. The syllabus consists of Class 11th and Class 12th Physics, Chemistry, and Maths modules. Top scorers in this examination are not lethargic and pay serious attention towards studies.
However, many candidates scoring average marks in JEE Advance fail to cover some vital topics like Optics. The module requires serious attention. Even in class 12th boards, this module carries the highest weightage. Hence, fetching good scores in this module becomes essential to get admission to a dream engineering college. So, for them, we are highlighting a few effective tips to score more in Optics and come up with flying colours in JEE Advance.
How to prepare the Optics module?
Do not ignore NCERT
Whether it is JEE or NEET, the basic syllabus is based on NCERT books. Today, there are plenty of candidates who have a habit of approaching complicated refresher guides. They refer to these books to clear doubts. But, several engineering professionals and students across the nation recommend preparing from NCERT books. In this, there is a simpler language that clears doubts effectively.
Also, understanding the basics from the same learning material will hone solving skills up to 70%. Therefore, the first study, Optics from NCERT. Solve every question. If you get stuck on any problem, refer to the online solutions of NCERT. Studying solved and unsolved examples of Optics is an effective measure for good exam preparation.
Have good command over sign conventions
Undoubtedly, sign conventions are the vital concept of Optics chapter like Mass-Energy Equivalence is an important concept in quantum Physics. Also, many students get confused with sign convention problems. It is because of not having good command over it. Moreover, it is an important concept to derive the lens formula. So, do not underestimate its power and importance.
Hence, study from different guides, textbooks but not go over extreme and start with complicated questions. Get a clear understanding of basic sign conventions concepts. Remember that not only ray optics is part of the JEE Advance Paper, wave optics also carry important weightage. Hence, get well-versed with both of their concepts.
Visualization is the solution.
Engineering is all based on visualization. So, for those who do not have visualization ability, we recommend building it before study preparation. Only applying formulas and solving is not the key to success. But, students must understand the finer details of the question and then imagine the given scenario.
By doing so, students will not face issues in solving particular questions. Also, they will land up getting accurate answers. Moreover, it gives a clearer idea of what the question demands from us. Hence, candidates will follow the correct solving approach in the examination and deliver accurate solutions in papers.
Practice previous year’s questions
Practicing previous year’s question papers of JEE Advanced will give enough idea of what kind of questions are expected. Also, it gives a brief idea of different questions’ weightage. Candidates have complained of time management during the examination. It is because they focus on selective questions only. But, there are plenty of questions in the examination.
Hence, solving previous year’s question papers will develop thinking power and time-management skills. Thereby, JEE aspirants will not have time issues in the upcoming examination and come up with good scores. Previous year papers are available free of cost on the internet. They can either download or get its printout for studying purposes.
