With NTA expected to announce the JEE Main 2022 examination schedule shortly on its official website, it is high time we discuss the viable JEE Main preparation tips and the expected chapter-wise weightage. This year as well, NTA is expected to conduct the JEE Main examination in four shifts and the first shift of this year’s JEE Main exam is expected to be conducted in March. If that indeed turns out to be the case, then the aspirants have less than 60 days for the final push.
In this article, we will discuss the short-term preparation strategy along with some expert tips and tricks that the candidates must be aware of before the “final blitz”. Also, we will provide the candidates with the chapter-wise weightage in this article which will help them identify which chapters have had more weightage in the past and where their focus should lie.

JEE Main 2022 Preparation Tips
With less than a month now to go for the first phase of the JEE Main 2022 examination (expected), our experts have prepared a list of “Do’s” that will help the candidates ace the final stage of their preparation –
Sometimes, smart effort triumphs over hard labor and strategic planning provide a greater result. Regular practice leads to adaptability and quick responses to questions. It results in making the most of the available time in the revision for better scoring. The candidates should concentrate more on honing their abilities through frequent reworking to refine the principles. Making self-written notes aid in memorizing equations, tricks and hints as they are quite useful throughout the preparatory stages. Taking some time off prepares the brain to relax and recall the information the candidates have learnt.
