can I learn 12th syllabus for jee main without class 11th?

Mayank Sinha 5th Dec, 2019
Hello dear aspirant,

There are some topics that don't have any connection from  class 11th and hence you don't require any base for them from class11th. For example one can study whole calculus part directly in 12th.
However there are certain topics that have connection from class 11th.You can take probability for example.
Overall i will suggest you to keep your study regular in both 11th and 12th.
Hope this helps.
