By Editorial

JEE Mains Maths Syllabus covers a total of 16 units. Each and every concept included in JEE Main syllabus for Maths is important and the questions could be expected from anywhere. National Testing Agency (NTA) has released the syllabus of JEE Main 2021. For mathematics, the students need to have rigorous practice. The more problems of Maths you will practice, the better will be your accuracy and speed. Students are thus advised to prepare a study plan by for Mathematics and give sufficient time to problem-solving strategy.
JEE Main exam will have 30 questions (20 MCQs + 10 numerical value) from Mathematics where 25 have to be attempted. The students can refer to the detailed list of JEE Main Maths syllabus, mentioned below and accordingly plan an effective preparation strategy. Read Here: JEE Main Physics Syllabus
