There is no uniform JEE Main 2024 weightage for all topics in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. Although weightage differs for every topic, it is recommended that candidates should go through every topic carefully irrespective of the number of questions and weightage of any topic.
To cope with the reduced syllabus of most academic boards, NTA has declared that there will be options in Section B of JEE Main 2024 Paper 1 and Paper 2. Candidates will have to answer 25 questions in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. There will be negative marking for Section B in both papers. It is crucial to have a holistic approach to every detail of the topic covered in JEE Main 2024 syllabus to develop a strong foundation for the concepts of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Architecture, and Planning.
