JEE Main and Advanced 2019 Syllabus

The Joint Entrance Exam popularly known as JEE is a primary eligibility criteria preferred by several reputed engineering institutes such as IITs, NITs, IIITs and other premier institutes like IISC, and IISER for admission to their B.E or B.Tech programs.

The vastness and varsity of IIT JEE Syllabus and the high level of competition makes it one of the toughest and most competitive national exam. Other than working hard, it is essential is to work smart. Everybody has their personal preparation strategy, but, initially, it is important for every student to be well versed with the detailed syllabus of JEE 2019 before starting their preparations. Scoring a seat in IITs or NITs is not challenging if you plan your studies well enough and invest your efforts accordingly.

The Significance of IIT JEE Syllabus 2019

  • It provides an opportunity to analyze your strengths and weaknesses and therefore assisting in better and smart preparations.
  • IIT JEE syllabus gives you a fair understanding of concepts covered and marks allotted to chapters included in the syllabus, enabling candidates to sort the relevant and irrelevant topics.
  • It helps candidates to formulate a systematic preparation strategy to ensure smooth and huddle free completion of JEE syllabus on time with sufficient time left in your hand for multiple revisions and practice.

    3. Organic Chemistry: It consist of topics such as Preparation, Properties and Reactions of Alkenes, Reactions of Benzene, Phenols, Preparation, Properties and Reactions of Alkenes and Alkynes. 
  1. Physics Syllabus: The Physics syllabus consist of topics such as Mechanics, Wave nature of Light, Thermal Physics, Optics, Modern Physics and Electricity and Magnetism.
  2. Mathematics syllabus: The Mathematics syllabus includes topics such as Trigonometry, 3 dimensions Analytical geometry, 2 dimensions Analytical geometry, Algebra, Integral calculus, Differential calculus and Vectors.

All aspiring IIT JEE candidates need to go through the syllabus thoroughly as it tunes their mind to grab all the important aspects of the chapters in detail. It is very crucial to go through the chapter’s time-to-time to make sure that no important topic is left out. Students should ensure that the syllabuses of all subjects are well covered in time to avoid further clashes. The students require excellent conceptual knowledge accompanied with methodologies and application to ace this exam, therefore, they should ideally give equal weightage to physics, chemistry and mathematics.
