Get Syllabus of JEE Mains for Mathematics
The first step towards preparing for JEE Main 2020 is to acquaint yourself with the JEE Main syllabus. The examination will have questions from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics with equal weightage given to all subjects. The syllabus of JEE Main Maths consists of four sections, which are Algebra, Calculus, Coordinate Geometry, and Trigonometry.
To ensure that you are able to secure a good rank in the examination, we have offered the CBSE recommended JEE Main 2020 Syllabus. You can go through the topicwise syllabus of all the subjects. In the section of Maths syllabus, you will also get the important Maths Topics of JEE Main 2020. Moreover, you can also download the PDF of the JEE Main Maths Syllabus by clicking on the link provided at the end of the post.
JEE Main 2020 will be conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA) in January 2020 and April 2020. But before moving to the syllabus, let us discuss the JEE Main 2020 exam pattern.
JEE Main 2020 Exam Pattern
The salient features of JEE Main are as follows:
 The exam will be of 3 hours in duration. The JEE Main question paper will be of 300 marks. Each question will be allotted 4 marks.
 A total of 25 questions will be asked where there are 30 questions each from the subjects of Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics.
 Candidates will have to mark the correct response for each question out of four given responses.
 Each correct question will fetch 4 marks. Every wrong answer in objective type questions will result in the deduction of one mark due to the negative marking of ¼ (onefourth) of the total marks, no negative marking will be there in Numerical type questions.
