Ques. Are Polymers, erythro/threo isomers parts of JEE Advanced 2021 Syllabus?

Ans. Yes, according to the syllabus released by IIT Roorkee, these topics are present in the syllabus of JEE Advanced 2021.

Ques. Has JEE Advanced Syllabus changed for 2021? 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 focus on, JEE Main or JEE Advanced?

Ans. JEE Main is the qualifying examination for JEE Advanced. So it is better to focus on JEE Main syllabus first. After qualifying for Advanced, prepare accordingly.

Ques. Does HC Verma for Physics follow JEE Advanced Syllabus 2021?

Ans. HC Verma for Physics holds some wider topics that are neither asked in JEE Main nor in Advanced. You can skip the extra topics by verifying it through JEE Advanced 2021 Syllabus released by the official authorities.

JEE Advanced 2021 : 3 answered questions


Ques. Is the IISER aptitude test as difficult as the JEE Advanced?

● Top Answer By Amit Kakani on 25 Jan 21

Ans. IISER Aptitude Test is more like JEE Main. It is easier than JEE Advance. There are four sections in the exam, and all have equal weightage. Mentioned below are the details for the same: Biology: This section might sound a tough nut to crack for the PCM students, but a reasonable understanding of class 11th and 12th NCERT concepts can help you sail through this section.  If you are not familiar with Biology, try to ace the Maths section. As the number of test-takers has grown over the years, this section has also seen a surged difficulty level. Maths: For the Biology students, it might be hard to crack.  You need to focus on 11th and 12th class concepts. You can search for the doable questions and solve them.  The level is usually at par or even above JEE Mains.  The biology students can cover the scores in their specialized section. Physics and Chemistry: This section is usually easier than the above two sections. The scores obtained here can make-or-break your chances for counselling.  The questions in these two sections cover the fundamental and essential concepts.  It is better to score well in these two sections.  The sections are not really tough. They are far away from the difficulty level of JEE Advance. Overall, the exam is far from the JEE Advanced level. The Biology students have the advantage to finish their section quicker. Make sure your fundamentals are clear and your reasoning ability is good. This should be enough to secure a good score.Read more

Ques. Is BITSAT easier than IIT JEE/Advanced?

● Top Answer By Sayantika Sen on 16 Jan 21

Ans. Yes, BITSAT is easier than IIT JEE/Advanced. Although the preparation method and intensity of both of these exams are quite similar. However, the exam procedures make these two different. A brief overview of both of these exams has been given in the following section, which may help understand the process of IIT JEE/ Advanced and BITSAT. IIT JEE/Advanced: It is the gateway to the prestigious educational institutions that are IITs, of our country. So, it is quite obvious that the papers will be tough. BITSAT: It is the entrance examination for BITS.  The difficulty level for the question in BITSAT is around 50-70% as compared to IIT JEE Advanced. Even less for English and IQ test questions.  However, this exam's cut-off marks are quite high. So, you should try to attempt as many questions as possible. In JEE Advanced you do not need to attempt all the questions. But even after attempting 140 questions out of 162 in BITSAT, you still may not score the required cutoff.  So, in terms of difficulty, JEE Advanced is definitely tougher than BITSAT. But you will need a similar mental preparation for both examinations.Read more

What is the best way to prepare for paper 2?
manisha malik

The best way to prepare for the exam is to go through the syllabus thoroughly, study from the books and practice previous years’ question papers. Here are some preparation tips:

  1. Importance of Quality Preparation: For JEE Advanced, focus on the quality time spent on exam preparation which is more important than quantity. 
  2. Give Emphasis to Class XI Syllabus: 40 – 45% of questions in JEE Advanced will contain the Class XI syllabus, so, focusing on Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry chapters of Class XI is important.
  3. Be Careful with Conceptual-Based Questions: JEE Advanced questions are generally conceptually based. So, you must revise the concepts and shortcut methods to attain 99% accuracy or perfection.
  4. Logical Thinking: For getting a good score in JEE Advanced, students must focus on their analytical and reasoning ability to solve the question.

How shall I prepare chemistry portion?
diya suresh

The syllabus for all 3 sections of the exam including Chemistry is based on NCERT syllabus of 11th and 12th class, so it is suggested to clear concepts from there before proceeding for other sources. Also try solving maximum practise papers and mock test series as there is no fixed pattern for the JEE Advanced exam. You will get practise papers at JEE Advanced 2021 papers.

Can I get topic wise marking of the physics?
diya suresh

There is no fixed pattern for the exam and hence weightage topic wise is difficult to predict. For physics, you will get questions majorly from following topics:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Electromagnetic Induction
  • Optics
  • Modern Physics
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Alternating Current
  • Capacitors
  • Current Electricity
  • Electrostatics
  • Magnetism
  • Rotational Dynamics
  • Vectors
  • Wave Optics
puja sao
How many questions are usually asked on calculus in maths?
diya suresh

There is no fixed pattern specified by the conducting body an dit keeps on revising every year. Therefore, it will be difficult to predict the exam number of questions. Most of the topics in all 3 sections of JEE Advanced are based on  NCERT syllabus of 11th and 12th.
