Syllabus for IIT JEE in the 11th standard
When it comes to preparation of the IIT JEE examination in India, a lot of factors come into play in the attempt to make it through. One of the most important things to do is to not only focus on working hard but also on working smart. The weightage for different topics, the important chapters from both XI and XII classes, and the right way to divide your time for each class are some of the things you need to keep in mind while preparing for the exams. Since the Class XI syllabus for IIT JEE has a bit more weightage in the JEE exams, it is imperative that you focus on it more.
Syllabus for IIT JEE – Topics WeightagesAre all the topics equally important? Does the pattern remain the same in every year’s exam? How to identify the chapters that require maximum attention?
The first step you need to take is to divide the topics or chapters in four different categories.
- High Weightage; Less Effort
- High Weightage; High Effort
- Less Weightage; Less Effort
- Less Weightage; High Effort
High Weightage; Less EffortThe topics covered in this category are like golden tickets as they are easy to prepare and have a big share in the weightage of the exam. Ideally, you should start with these chapters so that you begin your journey to IIT with the right momentum. This way, you will find that you have covered a major portion of your syllabus, with little effort. The following are the topics that fall under this category:
- Physics – Fluid Dynamics, Units and Dimension and Surface Tension
- Chemistry – Chemical Bonding, Atomic Structure and Hydrocarbons
- Maths – Set Theory and Relations, Mathematical Reasoning and Statistics
High Weightage; High EffortThe topics covered in this category are extremely important, however, they also require a lot of effort for maximum retention and understanding. As they are vital parts of the syllabus, you should study these topics well in advance, while also taking care to carve out time before the exams to revise them. The following are some of the topics that fall under this category:
- Physics – Rotational Motion, Experimental Physics and Instruments, Center of Mass and Conversation of Momentum
- Chemistry – Mole Concept, Thermodynamics, General Organic State and Gaseous State
- Mathematics – Circle, Parabola, Permutation & Combination and Sequence & Series
