List of subjects in JEE Advanced
The JEE Advanced examination comprises three primary subjects: Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. It consists of two papers, Paper 1 and Paper 2, both held on the same day for 3 hours each. Candidates must appear for both papers to qualify. The syllabus for JEE Advanced 2024 remains consistent across Papers 1 and 2, although the question patterns may vary.
The exam questions are designed to test candidates’ comprehension, reasoning, and analytical abilities, necessitating a deep understanding of concepts and application-based problem-solving skills. Approximately 30-40% of the Chemistry paper focuses on Class 11 topics, with the remaining 60-70% from Class 12. For Physics, topics from both Class 11 and 12 hold equal weight, while Mathematics includes around 40-50% of Class 11 chapters.
IIT JEE is renowned as one of the world’s top 5 toughest exams, with a highly competitive acceptance rate of just 1%. To succeed, candidates must build a strong foundation in Class 11 and 12 topics, regularly practice JEE Advanced PYQs, and attempt 4-6 full-length mock tests monthly for comprehensive preparation.
Subject Wise Syllabus of JEE Advanced Exam
IIT Madras has unveiled the JEE Advanced 2024 syllabus on its website. This syllabus outlines the chapters and topics for each subject. Candidates must follow this syllabus as the exam questions will be based on it. Familiarity with the exam pattern is also essential. After studying the syllabus, candidates can practice using JEE Advanced sample papers for better preparation.
