JEE Advanced 2020 Syllabus

JEE Advanced is a national-level entrance exam conducted to facilitate admissions to the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology and a few other colleges. The syllabus covers questions from Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics based on Class 11 & 12 of Science stream. There are two papers in the exam and both are compulsory. JEE Advanced is the second stage of Joint Entrance Examination after JEE Main for students who are willing to seek admission to IITs. The syllabus for JEE Advanced is not same as of the JEE Main.

Here we have compiled a list of all the chapters covered in the syllabus of JEE Advanced. The topic wise weightage of JEE is highly uncertain, therefore, the students are advised to prepare the entire syllabus without skipping.
