The JEE 2021 syllabus can be divided into two main sections –
JEE Main 2021 syllabus
JEE Advanced 2021 syllabus.
Some topics come under the syllabus for both of these examinations. However, certain topics are different from the JEE main syllabus and some select topics are different from the JEE Advanced 2020 syllabus. Hence, candidates should familiarize themselves with the key variations in the syllabi of JEE Main 2021 & JEE Advanced 2021.

The JEE Main 2021 Syllabus for Paper 1 (B.E./B.Tech) highlights topics from 3 different subjects – physics, chemistry, and mathematics. Various topics that fall under the JEE Main 2021 syllabus are also comprised in the NCERT Syllabus for Class 11 & 12. Therefore, a strong understanding of the concepts covered in the NCERT textbooks for class 11 & 12 is of essential significance to applicants hoping to crack the JEE Main & Advanced examinations. An overview of the syllabus for JEE Main 2021 (as prescribed by the NTA) is provided in this article. The significant points with their mark-wise weightage are also given.

JEE Main 2020 Paper 1 Syllabus (PCM)

Subject-wise list of all the sections comprised in the syllabus of JEE Main 2021 is provided here. The topic-wise weightage of IIT JEE is highly unlikely, therefore, the pupils are apprised to prepare the whole syllabus without jumping. JEE Main syllabus is planned as per class 11 and class 12 NCERT books to secure steadiness across the country. Have a complete overview of the entire syllabus and accordingly formulate a suitable preparation strategy.
