JEE Main Syllabus - Paper 1 (PCM)

Knowing what to expect in an examination is one of the best ways to prepare for it. In order to prepare for the JEE Main 2021 exam, it is important to get acquainted with the syllabus included in it. This features subject matter from physics, chemistry and mathematics.

With the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic status, the syllabus for the JEE Main 2021 examination may be impacted. With some States having announced a 30% reduction in the syllabus for their board exams, authorities at NTA and IIT’s are yet to make a decision on the same. NTA Director-General Joshi has commented, “We will take it to JAB which is the authority on these matters.”

A number of topics that are incorporated into the JEE Main 2021 syllabus otherwise can be found in NCERT textbooks for class 11 and 12. Thus it is extremely important for engineering hopefuls to acquaint themselves with these textbooks in order to crack the JEE Main 2021 exam.
