JEE Main 2020 Syllabus: Topic-wise breakdown for you to plan the revisions efficiently

The JEE Main is a national level engineering entrance examination. The question pattern for JEE Main exam is based on MCQ’s where the candidate will be provided with 4 options among which one of them is the correct ones.

In 2020, NTA is conducting the JEE Main exam for three papers. Paper 1 is divided into three sections- Chemistry, Physics, and Maths. Candidates are asked to prepare for the coursework of their classes 11th and 12th. The syllabus for the JEE Main 2020 is released by the National Testing Agency (NTA).

The JEE Main will now be held twice a year. In the year 2020, there will also be two sessions for this exam which will be in January and April.

This year the exam will be conducted in the online mode of three papers. Paper 1 will comprise Physics, Maths, and Chemistry. Paper 2 will comprise Maths, Aptitude, and Drawing and finally the Paper 3 will be having maths, aptitude tests, and planning based questions.

In Paper-1, 20 questions from each section will be MCQs and the remaining 5 questions will be numerical answer based questions. There is no negative marking for numerical answer based questions.

JEE Main syllabus for Paper 1

JEE Main Mathematics 2020 Syllabus

The JEE Main for the Maths syllabus will consist of 25 questions where the candidate will be provided with +4 marks for every correct answer and -1 will be deducted for every incorrect one.

After analyzing previous year question papers there are certain parts in the course where the candidate must mainly focus on. In this section the chapters like the sequence and series, straight lines, 3D, Determinant. These are the areas where the questions mainly come from.
