40-Day JEE Main 2022 Preparation Timetable, Tips & Recommended Books

New Delhi, 29 April 2022 – The JEE Main 2022 exam session-1 is all set to be conducted on June 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, and 29, respectively. With over 40 days to go, candidates need to gear up for the final days of revision. They also need to ensure that all important and high-scoring topics are covered before the day of the JEE examination. All this can be done by having a proper JEE Main preparation timetable.

To make it easier for students to revise all the important concepts, formulas, and theories before the JEE Main exam, we present candidates with a complete 40-day JEE Main 2022 preparation strategy. This can also act as a structured timetable for aspirants to base their studies on. The structure provided leaves no room for second-guessing and candidates will get the most out of it if they follow it religiously. 

That being said, Buddy4Study also understands the need for customized timetables, so we have left enough room for aspirants to change their JEE Main 2022 timetable as per their needs. 

JEE Main 2022 Exam Pattern – Number of Units Per Subject

JEE Main 2022 Subjects Total No. of Units
Mathematics 16
Chemistry 28
Physics 21
Total 65
  • Mathematics contains 16 units. 
  • Chemistry contains three sections – A (Physical Chemistry), B (Organic Chemistry), and C (Inorganic Chemistry). Section A and Section B have 10 units each, while Section C has 8 units – making a total of 28 units in the chemistry syllabus.
  • Physics contains two sections – A and B. Section A has 20 units and Section B has 1 unit – making a total of 21 units in the physics syllabus. 

JEE Main 2022 – New Additions This Year

  • JEE Main will be held in two sessions this year – June and July, 2022. 
  • The number of attempts for the exam is now two times per year.
  • The JEE Main exam will be conducted in 13 regional languages, including English, Hindi, Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Malayalam, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu.
  • There will be negative marking for both Section A (MCQ) and Section B (Numerical Value).
  • To compute the JEE Main All India Rank (AIR), the best of the score will be taken from the two given attempts. If a student attempts the paper once, only that attempt will count towards rank calculation.
  • Family’s annual income (total family income per year) is a mandatory field in the exam and all candidates have to provide correct details of the same.

JEE Main Preparation Timetable 2022

With nearly 40 days to go, we understand the importance of a properly structured JEE Main preparation timetable that also leaves enough room for one more round of revision. 

This is why we have provided an 18-day unit-wise study plan (for all subjects) that aspirants can repeat twice. After completing the 36-day plan (18 days + 18 days), candidates can use the remaining days to revise topics as per their choice. 

How to Prepare for JEE Main 2022? 

To create the perfect JEE Main preparation timetable, we have divided 18 days into three sets of 6 days each. Each day of each set focuses on all subjects equally.

I have completed the JEE Main preparation timetable as instructed. What should I do in the remaining time?

Aspirants can use the remaining time to focus on the topics they find to be difficult.

What can I do to prepare for the JEE exam in the best-possible manner?

To prepare for the JEE Main exam, aspirants should attempt mock tests at their homes. The practice of attempting the question paper with a deadline will lead to perfect time management and also allow candidates to gauge their speed.

Are there any chances of the JEE Main 2022 exam rescheduling again?

Aspirants should not expect rescheduling of the JEE Main exam any more. As the exam has already been rescheduled before, it is highly unlikely that it will be rescheduled again. Thus, candidates should start preparing as per the timetable given in this article and be exam ready.
