Topics that are important for JEE Adv 2020

JEE Advance

JEE Advanced 2020 is right around the corner—only 60 days left for D-day. You are not left with much time to go through with whole syllabus. So, how smartly can you prepare in the time that you have and by putting less effort to maximize your scores in the upcoming JEE Advanced exam?

The first thing to know is that NTA does not allocate any weightage to any chapter and that you should try to learn and understand all the chapters of all subjects. So, if you know clearly which chapter will be important and fetch you the maximum marks in the exam, then it will be easier for you to take the right route in completing the whole syllabus smartly.

Well, our team of subject experts have analyzed the pattern of the past years’ papers of JEE Advanced to give you a clear idea of the syllabus, by breaking chapters into 4 groups based on the effort required to learn and score in the exam as well as the weightage of each chapter.
