There are MCQ-type questions in section A of each subject of JEE Main. Candidates should note that the JEE Main exam was earlier conducted on the basis of MCQ type questions only. As such, there is a good chance that the candidates can complete the questions repeated in previous years.
Therefore, a useful strategy is to refer to the previous year question papers of JEE Main and list the most important topics from which MCQ type questions are asked in the exam. Focus on preparing these subjects extensively to improve the number of good efforts in the first section of each subject.
Candidates should note that admission to UG courses is based on JEE score. Therefore, those wishing to get admission in the top colleges have to get a high position in the merit list of JEE Main.

One of the most important strategies to achieve a good number of good attempts in the exam is proper time management. The duration of the exam is only 3 hours, in which candidates have to attempt 75 questions. Candidates should be able to memorize important mathematical and scientific formulas to solve questions quickly. We advise candidates to prepare and revise a chart/note of the most important formulas, scientific equations, relations, etc. every day before the examination.
A final but extremely useful suggestion for JEE Main is to go through the solved sample papers for the exam. In this way, candidates can cover a wide range of topics and specific questions within a short period of time. JEE can also refer to the previous year’s paper in conjunction with the main answer key to serve the same purpose.
