JEE Main Mathematics Syllabus - NTA has released the official syllabus of JEE Main 2020 in online mode on Septemmber 2. Students can find here the Mathematics syllabus for JEE Main 2020 prescribed by the NTA. The JEE Main Mathematics syllabus provided here contains the detailed topic wise information about the subject as is followed by NTA. Students must prepare for the exam only from the prescribed JEE Main Mathematics syllabus as questions are framed within its vicinity. Mathematics, being calculative in nature, requires a special analytical approach towards problem solving. Students are thus advised to prepare a study plan by selecting topics from JEE Main Mathematics syllabus and give sufficient time to problem solving tactics. JEE Main exam has 30 questions from Mathematics, all objective in nature totalling 120 marks. JEE Main will be conducted as computer based test in online mode across various test centres. JEE Main 2020 first attempt was conducted from January 6-9 while second attempt was to be held on April 5, 7, 8, 9 and 11. Students can find more information about JEE Main Mathematics syllabus in the article below.

sir my jee mains score in janaury is 76 percentile.In which college of engineering may i get a seat?

Rahul ke 1st Apr, 2020
Hello Aspirant, If you got around 76 percentile in JEE Main then your rank after JEE Main April will be around 2.5 lakh, with this rank being General or OBC Category Candidates you will not get NIT but you may get NIT's if you are a SC or ST category Candidate.but you can get admission in some of private colleges being a General or OBC Category Candidate.

Some of the colleges that takes admission on the basis of JEE Mains result

SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Chennai

Lovely professional University, Phagwara

Dr Vishwanath Karad MIT World peace University, Pune

Amity School of Engineering, Coimbatore

Heritage Institute of technology, Kolkata

Chandigarh University, Chandigarh

Manipal University, Jaipur

Nirma University, Ahmedabad

sir i got 92 percentile in 2020 jee mains will i get a nit

lubhan cherwoo 1st Apr, 2020
Estimating your rank from the formula (100-percentile)xnumber of participants in jee/100
Though it's difficult to get the exact rank but your rank could be around 70k, that can get you admission in

If you are ST/SC category
NIT Jalandhar, NIT Bhopal, MNIT Jaipur,NIT Jamshedpur, NIT Silchar

General Category
lower branches in NIT Manipur,NIT Srinagar and NIT Meghalaya.

OBC Category
NIT Silchar or NIT Durgapu

I want to select my catagory as EWS during submission of application form for NIPER JEE 2020 which is going to release from 1st april....for this which session of EWS (2019-2020) or (2020- 2021) is required, as (2019-2020) is valid till 31st march and renew is not possible due to covid-19

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 1st Apr, 2020

In this situation i would suggest you to go with current ews certificate and apply as EWS category candidate and apply for renewal as soon as the lockdown is over.You need to have renewed EWS certificate at the time of document verification which is months away from now.This situation is known to everybody and i am sure the authorities will support students in this situation.

Good Luck

sir I belong to St category and I scored 84.83 Percentile in jee mains 2020 January session may I know whether I get admissions in NIT or iiit or gfits .

lubhan cherwoo 1st Apr, 2020
It's difficult to calculate your percentage as of now but by using the formula (100-percentile)xtotal students in JEE mains /100.
Using this formula your rank would be around 137k and with that rank these are the colleges you can look into

  • Dr. B R Ambedkar National Institute of Technology, Jalandhar
  • Malaviya National Institute of Technology Jaipur
  • Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology Bhopal
  • Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology Allahabad
  • National Institute of Technology Agartala
  • National Institute of Technology Calicut
  • National Institute of Technology Durgapur
