  • Unit and Dimensions: Not only is this an important topic for preparing the overall syllabus but it is also scoring and easy. Students can answer easily by way of eliminating the wrong options in MCQs.
  • Gravitation and Electrostatics: These topics are time saving and scoring.
  • Electricity and Magnetism, and Thermal Physics: These topics are not only conceptually similar but also interrelated in certain aspects. A good ground can be covered by preparing these topics together.
  • Waves and Sound, and Optics: The variety of concepts is not too much and hence they are easier than many topics. Concepts are interrelated between these themes and with conceptual clarity, they can be a very scoring topic.
  • Kinetic Theory of Gases and Rotational Dynamics
