Once the timetable of JEE Mains is out, start preparing in a reverse manner, according to the difficulty of the subject. Of course, a subject which is difficult for one, maybe easy for others. So keep the most difficult subject for the last revision. Of course, this is my interpretation and may not apply for everyone.
Your basic concepts like Algebra, Trigonometry, Matrices, Integration should be crystal clear. Take expert advice in case you may have doubts.
An approximate weightage of 17% is given to Coordinate Geometry, Differential Calculus. 14% is given for Integral Calculus. Matrices and Determinants cover 7% of questions. The same applies to Sequence and Series; and Trigonometry.
In Chemistry, understand well subjects like Acids, Bases, Electrochemistry, Periodic tables, and elemental properties. Memorize different equations, reactions using charts and diagrams.
For Physics, have a good understanding of Atomic structures, laws of Physics. You can create acronyms for various formulae and important points. It is important to combine 2 or more statements that give better definitions for a question in concern.
