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.Latest: JEE Main 2020 application form correction facility available now.
