The JEE Advanced exam is a computer-based exam. It primarily consists of two papers (Paper 1 and Paper 2) and candidates have to appear for both the papers. The question paper comprises three parts namely - Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. It is mandatory for the students to attempt all the parts.
The JEE Advanced Syllabus 2020 covers for Physics, Chemistry, and Maths. The various important chapters are given below :
Units and dimensions
Laws of motion
Systems of particles
The pressure in a fluid
Electricity and magnetism
Wave nature of light
Atoms and Nuclei
States of Matter
Properties of Non-metals

Ethers Aldehydes and Ketones
Practical Organic Chemistry
Amino acids and Peptides
Properties and uses of polymers
Here, we shall discuss the relative weightage of the syllabus of Class 11 and Class 12 in each of the three subjects pertaining to the exam. We will also give a few important topics from Class 11 and Class 12 that should not be neglected by you at any cost as they have great importance when it comes to JEE Advance Paper.
Physics is a very concept-oriented subject. Here it is not just enough to memorize the important points. You need to understand them and apply them accordingly. Here the weightage for the syllabus of Class 11 and 12 are almost equal. The chapters of Class 11 act as a base for the chapters of Class 12. There you should through in them to understand the chapters of Class 12 and excel in them. Some major chapters of Physics in Class 11 include - Waves, Simple Harmonic Motion, Units and Dimensions, Rotational Motion, and Newton’s Laws of Motion.
Despite being a volatile subject, Chemistry can be mastered only with repeated practise. Be it Class 11 syllabus or Class 12 syllabus, consistent practice is a must. According to the JEE Chemistry syllabus, usually, the importance for Class 12 syllabus is more than that of Class 11. Generally, the weightage of Class 11 Chemistry syllabus is around 30% to 40%. However, most of the topics that are covered in Class 11 are the basic ones. They serve as a foundation for a deeper understanding of Class 12 topics and therefore should not be ignored. Therefore, even though the weightage of Class 11 syllabus is slightly on the lower, the topics taught in Class 11 cannot be ignored while preparing for the JEE exams. Some major topics of Class 11 Chemistry are Chemical Bonding, Chemical Equilibrium, Gaseous State, Atomic Structure, General Organic Chemistry, and Stoichiometry.
Maths is a subject which is of prime importance from the beginning of schooling. The foundation of Maths starts from the lowest of classes. With proper basics, any complicated problem can be easily solved in Maths. The same rule applies to JEE exams as well. The chapters of Class 11 are the foundation of Class 12 chapters as well. However, the weightage of topics of Class 11 mathematics is 40% to 50%. Yet, these cannot be ignored as the advanced versions of these chapters are a part of the Class 12 syllabus. Some of the primary topics of Class 11 Mathematics, which are important, are Coordinate Geometry, Permutations and Combinations, Probability, Complex Numbers, Binomial Theorem, and Progressions.
