JEE Advanced 2019 Official Syllabus (Topic-Wise) and Exam Pattern

The Joint Entrance Examination Advanced 2019 is going to be conducted by the IITs under the administration of the Joint Admission Board (JAB) 2019. On the basis of the candidate’s performance in the JEE Advanced exam, eligible candidates are provided admission to the Bachelor’s integrated Master’s and Dual Degree programs in various IITs. JEE Advanced exam consists of two papers – Paper 1 and Paper 2.  For each paper, a candidate is given three hours. The schedule of JEE Advanced 2019 is provided below:

Official Schedule for JEE Advanced 2019

  • Paper 1: 19th May 2019 (Sunday) (09:00 to 12:00) Session 1
  • Paper 2: 19th May 2019 (Sunday) (09:00 to 12:00) Session 2

NOTE:

  • Both papers are compulsory for candidates to attempt and will be held in computer-based test mode.
  • The schedule of the examination is going to be same even if there is a public holiday on the day of examination.

JEE Advanced entrance examination is basically conducted to provide admission to candidates looking to pursue engineering courses from the various IITs of India. If you are also looking to seek admission to IITs, you will need to first clear JEE Main entrance exam and then clear JEE Advanced and several rounds of counselling.

As JEE Main (first attempt) has already been conducted on 8th to 12th January 2019, candidates who appeared for this exam and looking to go through the JEE Advanced will need to start preparing for it right away. When preparing for the exam, it is important to know about the syllabus. The syllabus for JEE Advanced is provided below.
