One of the foremost things to prepare for JEE Main 2020 exam is to know the JEE Main syllabus, exam pattern, and chapter-wise weightage of topics to be covered. The syllabus of JEE Main Entrance exam is very vast which is divided into three subjects, i.e. Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics. So here we are providing topic-wise JEE Mains 2020 syllabus of Paper 1 and Paper 2 with the number of questions asked in the exam. Let's check the JEE Main PCM (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics) syllabus and Weightage followed by the topics and exam pattern of 2020. You can also download the JEE Main syllabus PDF at the end of the post.

JEE Main Syllabus 2020 - Paper 1

The syllabus of JEE Main Paper 1 can be divided into three parts i.e. Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. Furthermore, the syllabus contains two Sections - A and B.

  • Section - A pertains to the Theory Part having 80% weightage.
  • Section - B contains Practical Component (Experimental Skills) having 20% weightage.

Aspirants can find below a list of important topics and books that are referred for good for JEE Main preparation. For detailed syllabus of JEE Main and list of topics, please click on the individual subject below-

JEE Main Physics Syllabus 2020

The physics syllabus for JEE Main can be divided into 5 sections as given below:

  • Mechanics
