CUET UG 2023: Physics Syllabus Overlap in JEE Main, CUET test


Students who select Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics in section 2 of CUET can benefit from an added advantage since the JEE Mains Examination is scheduled to take place before the CUET exam. This means these students can leverage their knowledge and preparation for JEE Mains to excel in the CUET exam.

Starting May 21, the National Testing Agency (NTA) will conduct the Common University Entrance Test (CUET). The deadline for registering for CUET UG is March 30. The schedules for other state and national-level entrance exams, such as JEE Main and NEET, have already been published.

JEE Main serves as a crucial first step for aspiring engineers, while CUET offers a shared platform for students seeking admission into undergraduate programs across leading universities in India under the Ministry of Education (MoE).

CUET is a Computer Based Test (CBT) that comprises four sections – Section 1A: Language test, 1B: Language test, Section 2: Domain-specific test, and Section 3: General aptitude test. While Section 3 is identical for all applicants, candidates can choose from a pool of 13 and 20 languages in Section 1A and Section 1B, respectively. In Section 2: Domain-specific test, candidates can select from 27 distinct subjects based on their preferred undergraduate program.

Students who select Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics in section 2 of CUET can leverage their preparation for JEE Main to gain an added advantage due to a significant overlap of topics between the two exams, with JEE Main being conducted before CUET. Preparing for Physics can be challenging as it tests candidates’ comprehension of fundamental concepts as well as their time-management abilities. 

Therefore, studying for JEE can aid students appearing for CUET: Physics by providing them with additional practice and knowledge.

There is a significant overlap in the syllabus between the Physics sections of JEE Main and CUET.

The syllabus for the Physics section of JEE Main and CUET features several common topics, including Electrostatics, Current Electricity, Magnetic Effect of Current and Magnetism, Electromagnetic Induction and Alternating Current, Optics, Electromagnetic Waves, Atoms and Nuclei, Electronic Devices, Dual Nature of Matter and Radiation, and Communication Systems.

Here Are Some Pointers To Speed Up Your CUET Physics Preparation:

1) Create a one-month study schedule based on your needs: Since there is significant overlap in the topics covered by JEE and CUET, candidates who have prepared for JEE will have a head start in their CUET Physics preparation. However, it is essential to understand the differences between the two exams as well. The JEE Main exam covers topics from both class 11 and class 12, while CUET only includes topics from class 12.

2) Practice solving numerical: Numerical questions in Physics are often the most challenging aspect of both CUET and JEE exams, causing anxiety for many candidates. These questions require candidates to have a sharp mind and strong retention skills. Therefore, it is crucial to allocate extra time to practice and master numerical questions to excel in these exams.

3) Take mock tests from the official website of CUET: It is widely recognized that mock exams are an integral part of competitive exam preparation. By taking mock tests, candidates can gain a better understanding of how the actual exam is structured, identify areas of weakness, and pinpoint mistakes they may be making. Mock exams can be highly beneficial in helping candidates improve their performance and achieve success in competitive exams.

4) Make notes catered to your needs for revision: Taking note of important formulas and headings can be helpful in retaining information during exam preparation. It is also essential to identify and focus on weaker areas to improve understanding and performance. Making notes of important topics through bullet points can be a useful revision technique.

5) Solve the previous year’s exams of CUET: Solving the previous year’s exam papers is a useful strategy to improve time-management skills as it can help the candidate become familiar with the exam pattern and the types of questions asked. This can ultimately help the candidate complete the CUET within the given time frame, leaving time for revision. It is advisable to practice solving the papers under exam conditions to get a better sense of time management.

Preparation for competitive exams requires serious dedication and hard work. Candidates should make the most of the remaining months to focus on their goals and strive to achieve their dreams. With determination and perseverance, they can achieve high ranks in both JEE Mains and CUET.
