Difference between JEE Main and Advanced syllabus

The Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced) 2018 will be conducted by the IITs. JEE Advanced exam conducted by seven zonal Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) under the guidance of Joint Admission Board (JAB) every year, for admissions to 23 Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). Any student preparing for JEE Advanced to get into IITs is required to at least clear the cut-off of JEE Main.

The JEE Main exams are on the same lines of the CBSE Class 11 and 12 Physics, Chemistry and Math syllabus. The JEE Advanced requires a few extra topics to be covered for the exam. The two exams also differ since to be able to answer the JEE Advanced questions, the candidates must have in-depth knowledge of the concepts and their applications. Speed and accuracy are focused on in JEE Advanced exams whereas in JEE Mains exams only speed is focused on.

Difference between JEE Main and Advanced Chemistry syllabus:

States of Matter & Solutions Liquid state

  • Electric, magnetic and dielectric properties of solids
  • Henry’s law, osmotic pressure

Chemical Bonding

  • Kossel-lewis approach
  • Molecular orbital theory

Atomic Structure

  • Discovery of sub-atomic particles and earlier atomic models


  • Physical equilibrium

Chemical Kinetics

  • Collision theory

Surface Chemistry

  • Adsorption isotherms

Inorganic Chemistry

  • Entire H chapter
  • F Block elements


  • Proteins, vitamins and nucleic acids

Practical Chemistry

  • Only qualitative analysis of gp 1-4 included, rest everything is excluded

Complete chapters of Hydrogen, F Block elements, Environmental chemistry are NOT included in the syllabus of JEE Advanced. But, Normality and equivalent weight is INCLUDED in the syllabus of JEE Advanced, but NOT INCLUDED in the syllabus of JEE Main.

Difference between JEE Main and Advanced Physics syllabus:

  • From the chapters of Magnetism and Matter, Semiconductors and Communication systems is not a part of JEE Advanced Physics syllabus. Only Bohr’s model in included from the chapter Atoms.
  • Additionally, from Mechanics of Solids, Bulk modulus and modulus of rigidity are not included.
  • From Optics, Diffraction and Polarisation is not asked in JEE Advanced

Difference between JEE Main and Advanced Maths syllabus:

JEE Advanced Math syllabus includes harmonic progressions. However, the chapters of Sets, Statistics, Mathematical Induction Mathematical reasoning are NOT there.


NOTE: JEE Advanced can ask complex questions which require knowledge of the topics which are included by them but not by JEE Main.
