**JEE Main 2020 Syllabus:** The syllabus of JEE Main is pretty vast and lengthy. It takes almost two years for the students to cover up the whole syllabus, so a plan to tackle the syllabus becomes necessary. JEE Main 2020 syllabus is divided into 3 categories, i.e. Physics, Chemistry and Maths. Keep reading the article for complete JEE Main 2019 syllabus distribution

## Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Now, whether you need coaching or not, depends totally on you, your preparation etc. You can read the following article on “How to crack IIT-JEE” to get an insight. In this article, we are providing you with a number of tips which could be handy during your preparation.

Though it is not impossible to crack IIT-JEE or for that matter any exam on the planet without a coaching class and many people do it, it is recommended to join a coaching class. I say this because, firstly, your knowledge about certain topics is limited and to work on it, you do need an external support which the coaching class provides. Also, you could trust the coaching class with your doubts, which can be immediately addressed. Also, when you have people studying around you, it helps. You tend to acquire skills from different people, which might help you to excel in the exam. But, having said that, if you are confident enough that you can crack the exam on your own, you can surely go ahead with it, but do join a decently good test series, to constantly test your level of preparation.

Joint Entrance Examination Main(JEE Main) is the joint national examination that is conducted every year by Central Board Of Secondary Education (CBSE). Every year, more than 10 lakh candidates appear for this examination and get admission to various NITs, IIITs and other private colleges. It is important to note that JEE Main is the qualifying exam for JEE Advanced. Only those candidates are eligible to register for IIT-JEE advanced who have qualified the JEE Main examination and are among the top 2,20,000 candidates of JEE Main. JEE Main can be given either offline or online. From 2013 to 2016, the marks obtained in the class XII school board examination were given a 40% weightage in deciding the JEE Main All India Ranks(AIRs). But in 2017, the 12th percentage was not accounted to calculate the JEE Main rank. Earlier, counselling for JEE Main was conducted through Central Seat Allocation Board(CSAB) but now officials have made changes in the counselling procedure. The JAB (Joint Admission Board), representing IITs and CSAB (Central Seat Allocation Board) are organizing a common counselling for the two exams of JEE. The joint counselling committee for these exams is known as the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA). The admissions to various NITs and IIITs are done through JoSAA counselling.

IIT-JEE Advanced is the second stage examination of JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) through which one can get into various IITs along with some CFTIs – Central Government funded technical institutions like IISc Bangalore and IISERs of the country. Only the candidates who clear JEE Main and secure rank under 2,20,000 are eligible to appear for JEE Advanced.

Through JEE Advanced, IITs offer admissions to various undergraduate courses including Bachelor’s, Integrated Masters or Bachelor‐Master Dual Degree in Engineering, Sciences, Architecture, and Pharmaceutics. There are various courses offered at IITs, some courses such as B.Tech in Computer Science, Mechanical, Electrical are offered in all the institutes while other courses such as B.Tech in Biotechnology, Environment, BS Economics are restricted to few IITs. There are some new courses in Design and Aeronautics being introduced or supplemented in newer IITs such as IIT Gandhinagar and IIT Hyderabad. Also, the admission to various courses is based on the cutoff and number of seats available in an IIT which is different in different IITs. Around 10,572 undergraduate seats are filled every year through JEE Advanced.

To answer this question you can browse through the following points:

- Have a plan and stick to it
- Do not waste time
- Develop a genuine liking for the subjects
- Self-study
- Don’t miss important topics
- Get conceptual clarity
- Focus on problem solving speed
- Practice mocks
- Seek expert guidance
- Be calm Be fresh Be active

Though IIT-JEE is touted to be one of the toughest exams, every year nearly 20000 hardworking individuals excel at it and make it to the top institutes around the country. It is a competitive exam, thus it is difficult for you it would be difficult for everyone. The only impact will be on the cut-offs which would slide down, for a difficult paper or shoot up for an easier paper. To simple put it, IIT-JEE is difficult but again it DEPENDS!

For registration of JEE Main each and every candidate has to go through the three easy steps given below.

- Visit website and register
- Fill personal and academic details
- Scan and upload images

Read more about the JEE Main form for registration here.

Once a candidate clears JEE Main, they can apply for JEE Advanced. Read more about JEE Advanced registration here.

IIT JEE MAIN 2020 was of easy-moderate level. Many questions were quite straight forward and could be answered by anyone who has prepared well for the exam. But a crucial role was played by some tricky questions which turned out to be the deciding factors. In every paper 5-6 questions were framed differently but there was no ambiguity in any question.

Physics was overall good, and was on the easier side. It barely had any surprise elements which in itself was surprising. Almost all the topics were covered here. Mathematics paper was of moderate level of difficulty. It had a few lengthy question and a few easy questions also. It required conceptual understanding of all the chapters and was nearer to the JEE Advanced paper. Chemistry was of moderate difficulty level. It was equally balanced with questions coming from Physical Chemistry, Inorganic and Organic Chemistry. Here, the questions were again conceptual and only a few were memory based.

There are many reasons to it:

The portion is humongous. The question paper pattern is completely unpredictable and the cut-offs can reach heights. The acceptance rate is quite low at the IITs, thus lakhs of people take the exam but barely a few make it.

But a simple answer to this question is that a seat at an IIT gives you quite a rosy future. Top companies battle to hire you and possibly early angel investor is dying to hear your business plan. It’s a staircase to success, to simply put it.

The IIT JEE Main exam would be conducted in April 2020 and IIT JEE Advanced would be conducted in the month of May 2020.

It would be announced in the last week of May 2020.

IIT-JEE was started in the year 1960, back then it had four papers including an English Paper. It was initially called the Common Entrance Exam (CEE) initially. Its creation coincided with that of the 1961 IIT Act.

The syllabus of JEE Main includes all the topics of Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics given in NCERT of Classes 11th and 12th along with some extra topics that are very important from the perspective of other competitive examinations also. Students must note that the overall syllabus for IIT-JEE advanced and JEE Main is more or less same. The key difference is that some topics are not included in JEE Main syllabus but are the part of JEE advanced and vice-versa.

Before 2015, the JEE counselling was done through Joint Admission Board(JAB) and Central Seat Allocation Board(CSAB). Admissions to various IITs were made through JAB whereas CSAB is responsible for intake in various NITs, IIITs, and GFTIs. After 2015, MHRD set up Joint Seat Allotment Authority(JoSAA) to manage JEE counselling. The purpose of JoSAA counselling is that admission to 97 institutes (IITs, NITs, and IIITs, CFTIs) should be made through a common platform. JEE Main 2017 counselling and seat allotment is not conducted separately but is collectively conducted through JoSAA 2017 for 31 NITs, 23 IITs and 20 GFTIs, which are the participating institutes of JEE Main 2017. Those candidates who are successfully allotted seats will have to pay the seat acceptance fee and verify their documents at the designated reporting centres. In JEE Main counselling section, we are providing the basic information about JoSAA counselling, some important points to know while filling the registration form for JEE counselling, JEE counselling schedule chart, brief about eligibility, freeze, float, and slide options, withdrawal of seats, brief about all the different rounds (1 to 7), supernumerary seats for Union territories, brief about dual reporting, institutes that participate in the counselling round like IITs, NITs, Private institutes, GFTIs and list of reporting centres.
