However, questions from Nomenclatures and General Organic Chemistry are on a steady decline with every year
  • In Inorganic Chemistry: P Block elements have been the examiner’s favorite since long, closely followed by questions on Coordination Compounds. However, in laxity of time, students can skip S, D and F block compounds. Other significant areas being: periodic properties of elements, chemical bonding, metallurgy etc.,
  1. Analyzing Mathematics

Only ‘practice’ makes you perfect in Mathematics

  • Differential Calculus sees the majority of questions, closely followed by Coordinate Geometry
  • Other important topics be like: Integral Calculus and Vector Analysis and 3D
  • Topics like Binomial Theorem, Matrices & Determinants and Statistics, get steady queries every year
  • Students can choose to devote less time on Probability, and Permutation and Combination, since they receive the lowest weightage.
