NTA Unlikely to Reduce JEE Main 2021 Syllabus

According to sources, NTA (National Testing Agency) is not planning to reduce the syllabus of JEE Main 2021 despite CBSE, ISC and other state boards cut down the syllabus of Class 12th by 30%. As NTA is going to confirm the exam date for JEE Main January 2021 soon, discussions are underway with regard to the exam date and syllabus. In all probability, NTA may conduct the January 2021 exam in the last week of February or mid-March.

JEE Main 2021 Preparation Strategy & Study Plan

Only a few state boards have confirmed the syllabus cut for Class 12th for the academic session 2020-21. As NTA considers the syllabus of all state boards, it is highly unlikely that JEE Main 2021 syllabus may be revised. If all states across the country reduce their syllabus, then NTA may consider revising the syllabus for JEE Main.

Also, NTA is considering certain factors that some of the topics featured in the syllabus of JEE Main are important for students joining B.Tech. In addition, most of the boards like CBSE/ ISC deleted certain sub-topics in different chapters and not the entire chapter. In such cases, there will not be a major change in the syllabus of JEE Main 2021.

Dear Student,

No, you cannot apply for JEE Main if you are still in class 11th. As per the JEE Main eligibility requirement, the candidate must have passed class 12th in Science or must be appearing for the final examination. You can apply for the exam next year. Till then, you have sufficient time to prepare for the exam.

You can check How to Prepare for JEE Main to help you through the preparation.
