    JEE Advanced Syllabus: AAT

    Candidates desirous to join B. Arch. (Architecture) program at IIT Kharagpur and IIT Roorkee, will have to PASS the Architecture Aptitude Test (AAT). Only those candidates who qualify JEE Advanced are eligible to appear in AAT 2018. The exam will be conducted on June 2018.

    Given below is the detailed syllabus for JEE Advanced Architecture Aptitude Test (AAT) which covers topics like Geometrical Drawing, Freehand Writing and Architectural Awareness.

    Geometrical DrawingExercises in geometrical drawing containing lines, angles, triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, circles, etc. Study of plan (top view), elevation (front or side views) of simple solid objects like prisms, cones, cylinders, cubes, splayed surface holders, etc.
    Three Dimensional PerceptionUnderstanding and appreciation of three-dimensional forms with building elements, colour, volume and orientation. Visualization through structuring objects in memory.
    Imagination and Aesthetic sensitivityComposition exercise with given elements. Context mapping. Creativity check through innovative uncommon test with familiar objects. Sense of colour grouping or application.
    Architectural AwarenessGeneral interest and awareness of famous architectural creations – both national and international, places and personalities (architects, designers, etc.) in the related domain.
    Freehand WritingThis would comprise of simple drawing depicting the total object in its right form and proportion, surface texture, relative location and details of its component parts in appropriate scale. Common domestic or day-to-day life usable objects like furniture, equipment, etc., from memory.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    JEE Advanced Syllabus FAQs

    Ques.  Are Polymers, erythro/threo isomers parts of JEE Advanced Syllabus?

    Ans. Yes, according to the syllabus released by IIT Roorkee, these topics are present in the syllabus of JEE Advanced 2018.

    Ques. Has JEE Advanced Syllabus changed for 2020? Or is it still the same.

    Ans. The only change which surprises students in JEE Advanced is – Exam Pattern. The syllabus of the exam is fixed over the years. But there are some topics that differ in JEE Main and Advanced.

    Ques.  Which syllabus should I put focus- JEE Main or Advanced?

    Ans. JEE Main is the qualifying examination for JEE Advanced. There is no major change in the differences between the duo syllabus. It is better to focus on JEE Main syllabus first. After qualifying for Advanced, prepare according to it.

    Ques.  Does HC Verma for Physics follow the JEE Advanced Syllabus?

    Ans. HC Verma for Physics holds wider topics that neither asked in JEE Main nor in Advanced. You can skip the extra topics by verifying it through the syllabus released by the official authorities.
