Jul 14, 2021

JEE Main Syllabus 2022

The National Testing Agency (NTA) organises the JEE main exam and will release JEE Main syllabus 2022 on its official website jeemain.nta.nic.in. JEE Mains 2022 syllabus will be available for all three papers: Paper 1 for B.Tech, Paper 2A for B.Arch and Paper 2B for B.Plan. JEE Main 2022 syllabus for Paper 1 contains Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. JEE Main syllabus for paper 2 is again divided into two segments: Paper 2A for B.Arch (Mathematics, Aptitude and Drawing), and Paper 2B for B.Plan (Mathematics, Aptitude and Planning).

Students get familiarised with the JEE syllabus so that they can know the topics which will be covered in the NTA JEE Main. Besides the syllabus, students should also aware of the exam pattern and weightage of the syllabus. Though the JEE Main syllabus remains the same (unless otherwise stated), students should still check the standard syllabus given on the official website! 

JEE Main 2022 Syllabus Subjects

JEE Main Syllabus 2022 is composed of topics from the three subjects: Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. To crack the examination, candidates need to stick to the JEE Main syllabus.
