Want updates on JEE Main
Tell us your JEE Main score and we will let you know which colleges you could qualify for !!
JEE Main is one of India’s top engineering entrance exam conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA). The examination will take place twice in a year in January and April respectively. Candidates can attempt both or any one of these to score marks valid to enter top engineering colleges in India. In order to clear this examination candidates must most prepare for it in an organised and systematic way. To do so they can go through the How to Prepare section and read in detail the tips and tricks required to conquer this examination. No preparation can be a success if the candidates are unaware of the exam syllabus. The test takers can read about the detailed JEE Main 2019 syllabus here and find out what all they need to study and prepare for this national level exam.
The syllabus for JEE Main is based on class 11 and 12 subjects mainly comprising of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics (PCM). The JEE Main 2020 syllabus for PCM is available here for candidates. The syllabus has been finalized by NTA, with no major changes in the topics and sections of the Subjects. Candidates preparing for the upcoming JEE Main should study all the subjects given in the JEE Main 2020 syllabus and start their preparation as soon as possible.
JEE Main Paper 1 (B.E/B.Tech) is divided into 3 parts - Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics.
