Concepts with larger share

60% of the weightage has been found to be assigned to Electrodynamics and Mechanics. Thus, it is very important to build strong concepts in Mechanics right from class XI. It is also suggested to revisit the concept once the learner is well acquainted with Calculus.

Chemistry
