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 will be conducted from January 6-11 while second attempt will be held from April 3-9. Students can find more information about JEE Main Mathematics syllabus in the article below.

most important topic in physics for jee mains??

Mayank Chowdhary 14th Nov, 2019
Most important topics like frequently asked questions are from -

  1. Kinemetics that is from projectile motion, circular motion, rotational motion, oscillations, force, work, energy, power,etc.
  2. A scoring section is Modern Physics too which includes Semiconductors, Atoms Molecules and Nuclei, Electrons and Photons.
  3. Then not very important but little important topic is waves and sound too - Ray Optics, Refraction of Light, sound waves, wave theory of light, stationary waves, etc.

Thank you.

how to prepare for jee mains paper 2

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 13th Nov, 2019

So, basically JEE mains paper 2 has 3 sections:
For maths, the questions are quite similar to that of JEE mains paper 1. So, if you are preparing dedicatedly for jee then paper 2 will be for you for this paper.
Then comes aptitude and for that i would suggest you to do extensive study from online sources.
Go through the syllabus and completes topics one by one.Also aptitude is scoring and not that difficult.
For doing just practice as much as you can.
Paper 2 is not very difficult and you can easily get a good score by preparing withy right strategy.

Good Luck

what are the maths easy,tough and hard topics for jee mains

Sourandhi Saha Student Expert 13th Nov, 2019
Maths is considered as the most difficult subjects in Jee mains. But if you practice regularly, it will not seem difficult to you. In Jee Mains, out of 25 questions in Maths, 5 questions come from coordinate geometry. 3 questions from Limits, Continuity and Differentiability, another 3 questions from Integral Calculus. These are the most important chapters. So practice thoroughly. Another important chapters are Statistics, probability, vector algebra, three dimensional geometry, Complex numbers and Quadratic Equation, Matrices and Determinants.

what is Qualifying mark for jee main in January 2020? Pwd Category

Abhinandan Patel 13th Nov, 2019
Jee mains 2020 has not been conducted till now..
You will get the qualification marks after the result gets declared..

Ive completed my intermediate in 2019 and didnt attempted jee mains and advance. Am I eligible to to appear for jee mains and advance in the coming two years, 2020 and 2021

_Abhishek_Vatsya Student Expert 13th Nov, 2019
There is no age limit for JEE MAINS.You can appear in JEE MAINS consecutively for three years.This exam happens twice in a year.And you can sit consecutively in JEE ADVANCE for two years.So you can appear in both entrance EXAMINATION in 2020 and aslo in 2021.
