Preparation Tips For KEAM Mathematics

  • The mathematics paper will be conducted exclusively on a fresh date. This says how much importance it is going to carry in the final score.
  • One should not give too much importance to the calculation steps because no one cares about the steps, you need to crack the answer at the end.
  • Give most importance to the algebra, calculus and geometry units.
  • Students should be familiar with all the formulae. We suggest you prepare flash cards and thoroughly go through them on the last day of your preparations.
  • The circles and family of circles in the geometry unit are very important.
  • Be strong in the trigonometry unit because direct questions are expected.
  • Algebra unit will decide the fate of a candidate. Hence, never leave room for confusion.

Preparation Tips For KEAM Physics

  • Never get confused with the basic concepts because a lot of questions are expected.
  • Be strong in the mechanics of solids and fluids.
  • The oscillations, waves and gravitation units are famous for scoring. So learn them well.
  • The heat and thermodynamics unit is very important and the questions will be tricky. So never get confused.
  • Direct questions are expected from measurement, optics, atomic nucleus and laws of motion.

Preparation Tips For KEAM Chemistry

  • Chemistry has a huge syllabus in KEAM compared to physics and mathematics.
  • Be thorough with the basic concepts in atomic structure, molecular structure, states of matter and the periodic table.
  • Never get confuses between s-block, p-block d-block and f-block elements. One can score high in these units.
  • If you are not strong in chemical equilibrium, put this one at the end because it takes too much time to solve.
  • Chemical kinetics, surface chemistry and electrochemistry are very important.
  • Try to solve the easiest questions first in chemistry. This will only save time to focus on other areas.
