# JEE Main Syllabus

**JEE Main Syllabus 2020:** The National Testing Agency (NTA) will release the JEE Main 2020 syllabus in the month of September 2019. The conducting body will release JEE Main syllabus for both Paper 1 and Paper 2 on the official website – **jeemain.nic.in** . The JEE Main Paper 1 has three sections, namely Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. JEE Main Paper 2 also has three sections, namely, Mathematics, Aptitude, and Drawing. The JEE Main syllabus is based on the syllabus of Class 11 and 12 as prescribed by CBSE. Candidates need to refer to the JEE Main 2020 syllabus for their JEE Main preparation. It is to be noted that there is no separate JEE Main syllabus for lateral entry and Diploma holder students.

We bring you the detailed JEE Main syllabus and also the class-wise topics for Class 11 and 12. This article will provide you with the detailed JEE Main 2020 syllabus for Paper 1 and Paper 2.

## JEE Main Syllabus 2020

Before getting into the details of JEE Main syllabus, it’s important to know that JEE Main has two papers:
