Paper – II  Part II: Aptitude Test  Objective Type Questions  Pen – Paper Based  3 Hours 
Part III: Drawing Test  Questions to Test Drawing Aptitude 
Prepare for JEE Mains Physics
If you are targeting JEE Mains 2018, you have limited time to study. Start with the basic concepts of Physics. It is recommended to cover all the basics of Physics with NCERT books. Memorize all the important Physics formulas for JEE Mains. Know the most important chapter in JEE Mains physics and spend a good amount of time on these.
Make a formula cheat sheet which is helpful during your revise team make a habit to revise that formula on a daily basis.
 Practice more and more helpful to get the answer quickly.
 Avoid the habit to attend lengthy question at the last moment.
 Concentrate your mind on your strong areas.

Prepare for JEE Main Chemistry
The Basics of Chemistry are chemical elements. If you want to make the most out of JEE Mains Chemistry section, you need to memorize the Periodic table. To memorize names, atomic numbers, symbols, atomic weights of all elements in the Periodic table, you can make some Mnemonic, short slogan or catchphrases.
We can say it’s too tough or too easy subject but give you a chance for achieving more marks.
 For the inorganic part, focus on basic conceptual parts.
 For s, p, the d block elements periodic table is most helpful resources.
 For the organic part, you have to prepare a chart of all helping reaction and reactant.
