Around 1.5 million students appear for the Joint Entrance Examination Main every year. While most of the students seek admission to UG programmes in NITs, IIITs, CFTI’s, etc., others wish to get into the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) by clearing the second stage exam i.e. JEE Advanced. No matter what’s your plan if you are an engineering aspirant, the first thing that you should do is to get hold of the complete JEE Main syllabus.
Until 2018, the Central Board of Secondary Education was the JEE exam conducting body. During a press conference held earlier in July 2018, HRD Minister PrakashJavadekar said that the National Testing Agency, centre’s premier agency, would take over the responsibilities of conducting the exam and announcing the result of the Joint Entrance Exam Main test along with other important entrance exams from CBSE. He further highlighted that the syllabus would be the same. Thus, since 2019, the JEE Main exam is being conducted by the National Testing Agency. The exam is also being conducted twice a year w.e.f 2019 – in January and April.
No changes have been introduced to the JEE Main syllabus. So, students can stick to the syllabus and make the most of it. The sooner, the better!
Students who are well-versed with the syllabi of Class XI and XII will find it easier to understand the syllabi of the Joint Entrance Test Main. Since the syllabus is the stepping stone, grab it as early as possible to have an impeccable and flawless preparation.
Using JEE Main 2020 Syllabi for Impeccable Preparation:
- Whether you are preparing for Paper I or Paper II – unless you are thorough on the topics and sub-topics, fetching good results is definitely not an easy task. Subjects like Mathematics and Chemistry need a lot of practice, while Physics requires ample attention. Knowing the complete syllabi adds value to your study and saves a lot of time. It helps you not to focus on unrelated topics.
- Those students who have done well in the Class 11th and 12th will have no difficulty in retrieving information and augment their study eventually. Such candidates know the syllabus already; hence, speeding up, while not skipping any topics, will be an easier task for them. For them, the mind monitors like Google. Such students can focus more on revision, mock test, sample paper solving, etc.
- Once you know the syllabus, preparing a study timetable is inevitable. This way, you can make certain that how many topics or chapters you can cover in a day. Ultimately, you will have enough time for revision. While preparing the time-table, keep breaks in between the study sessions. Also, set monthly goals for completing the syllabus.
- Concentrate on solving the previous years’ questions, try as many mock test series as you can and use correct reference materials to be a perfectionist before the commencement of the exam.
