JEE Main Syllabus 2018 – CBSE has announced JEE Main 2018 syllabus that must be followed by candidates preparing for the exam. JEE Main syllabus 2018 is available for all the subjects covered in the entrance exam – Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics; candidates can download the syllabus from this page below.
JEE Main Syllabus 2018
JEE Main syllabus will contain subject-wise topics and sub-topics in detail, for both Paper I and II. The official syllabus of JEE Main 2018 is an important component of the preparation package as it helps candidates streamline their preparation. To begin with, it will help the candidate identify which topics are essential and which are not. Using JEE Main 2018 syllabus, the candidate can also figure out scoring areas and identify areas that are a weak link and work on them. To be more effective in their preparation, candidates may also check out question papers of previous years, and see how the syllabus and the questions asked in JEE Main converge. To give edge to their preparation, candidates can also take JEE Main 2018 mock test, which is available now. Read the entire article to get complete details of JEE Main syllabus 2018.
