In a twist over the difference between JEE Main and JEE Advanced syllabus? Here is the place to get your doubts cleared.
The IIT JEE examination is divided into two parts—the JEE Mains and the JEE Advanced. Those who qualify in the JEE Mains are allowed to take the JEE Advanced. If you are new to this world of JEE this piece of information is vital for you. You will need to know just how to prepare specifically for both exams.
The IIT JEE Mains examination is conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) while the JEE Advanced is conducted by the IITs themselves on rotational basis.
Let Us Talk Syllabus!
Before sitting down to study for any national level test always take a printout of the exam syllabus and tack it up on your wall or study table. For the duration of your exam this is going to be the most vital piece of paper ever.
It will list out what you MUST study and more importantly, what you DO NOT have to study. Get clear on this. This is the foundation on which your whole preparation stands.
Once you have done this you have simplified the work for yourself.
Next comes studying the syllabus in detail and making a timetable.
Sorry to disappoint you but it is not the exact same syllabus for both exams.
There are some difference between JEE Main and JEE Advanced syllabus.
Below is a comprehensive listing showing the difference between JEE Main and Advanced syllabus.
Topics in Mathematics such as Sets, Relations and Functions, Mathematical Induction, Binomial Theorem and its Applications, Sequences and Series, Mathematical Reasoning, Statistics and Probability are there in the syllabus for Mains but not in the syllabus for Advanced. Topics like Differential Equations and Probability are exclusively there only for the JEE Advanced.
The other topics for JEE Mains are Complex Numbers and Quadratic Equations, Matrices And Determinants, Permutation And Combination, Limits Continuity And Differentiability, Integral Calculus, Co-Ordinate Geometry, Three Dimensional Geometry, Vectoral Algebra, Statistics And Probability, and Trigonometry.
Topics such as Oscillations and Waves, Electromagnetic Waves, Dual Nature of Matter and Radiation, Electronic Devices, Communication Systems, and Experimental Skills are exclusive to JEE Mains and not JEE Advanced.
Topics like Mechanics are exclusive to JEE Advanced but not JEE Mains.
The other topics for JEE Mains Physics are Physics And Measurement, Kinematics, Laws Of Motion, Work, Energy And Power, Rotational Motion, Gravitation, Properties Of Solids And Liquids, Thermodynamics, Kinetic Theory Of Gases, Electro statistics, Current Electricity, Magnetic Effects Of Current And Magnetism, Electromagnetic Induction And Alternating Currents, Optics, and Dual Nature Of Matter And Radiation are there both in the JEE Mains and in the JEE Advanced.
Before you sit down to begin your preparation it makes sense for you to know on which topics to stress more and which topics to merely get a rudimentary hang of things.
The syllabus is quite different for Chemistry Mains and Advanced. Many topics in Mains are not needed for Advanced.
The topics exclusively for JEE Mains are Classification Of Elements And Periodicity In Properties, General Principles And Processes Of Isolation Of Metals, Hydrogen, S-Block Elements (Alkali And Alkaline Earth Metals), P-Block Elements, Co-Ordination Compounds, Environmental Chemistry, Purification And Characterisation Of Organic Compounds, Some Basic Principles Of Organic Chemistry, Hydrocarbons, Organic Compounds Containing Halogens, Organic Compounds Containing Oxygen, Organic Compounds Containing Nitrogen, Polymers, Biomolecules, Chemistry In Everyday Life, Principles Related To Practical Chemistry.
Topics exclusively there for JEE Advanced are Ores And Minerals, Extractive Metallurgy, Principles of Qualitative Analysis, Properties Preparations And Reactions of Alkanes, Preparation Properties And Reactions of Alkene And Alkynes, Reactions of Benzene, Phenols, Carbohydrates, Amino Acids And Peptides, Properties And Uses of Some Important Polymers, Practical Organic Chemistry
Here is the difference between the end aim of JEE Mains and JEE Advanced.
Marks scored in the IIT JEE Mains examination makes you eligible for the following:
Admission into the leading NITs (National Institutes of Technology)
Admission into the IIITs (Indian Institution of Information Technology)
Admission into other CFTIs (Centrally Funded Technical Institutes)
Admission into any other participating engineering colleges
Eligibility for IIT JEE Advanced exam
Marks scored in the IIT JEE Advanced examination makes you eligible for the following:
Admission into the IITs (Indian Institute of Technology)
ISM (Indian School of Mines)
Let Us Talk Preparation!
Before you begin your JEE prep it makes perfect sense for you to chalk out a road map so to speak. The roadmap is crucial for your aim of cracking the exam.
One of the roadblocks you are likely to face is this: just how much can I study?
If you are crunched for time then it makes sense for you to study only certain topics and omit certain topics, better still, know what is there in the syllabus for both the Mains and the Advanced and stress on those topics the most. The inclusive list of topics is very useful for those crunched for time. While the exclusive list of topics helps you to know what is different between the two.
This list is not a detailed list. For the exact differences between the two syllabi check out the syllabus on the JEE page. Although it is recommended you make a thorough study of the syllabus before starting.
Hope the syllabus difference between JEE Main and Advanced is clear to you.
