JEE Advanced Syllabus 2024
IIT Madras has unveiled the JEE Advanced syllabus for 2024, and there have been no alterations from the previous year. The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Advanced serves as the gateway for students aspiring to pursue undergraduate courses, encompassing bachelor's degrees, integrated master's degrees, and bachelormaster dual degrees in engineering, sciences, and architecture at the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). The JEE Advanced syllabus is meticulously designed to evaluate candidates' academic capabilities at the IIT level, covering pertinent topics.
The exam comprises two mandatory papers, each featuring questions from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. Both papers extend over a duration of three hours, assessing candidates' comprehension, reasoning, and analytical abilities. The questions in the exam are drawn from the topics outlined in the JEE Advanced syllabus.
For candidates' convenience, the JEE Advanced 2024 syllabus PDF is available for download on this page. It is noteworthy that the syllabus has been updated starting from the year 2023.
