JEE Main 2023 Preparation 

To ensure that candidates have covered all the essential topics of JEE Main 2023 Syllabus. Candidates should follow a strict JEE Main preparation schedule. JEE Main preparation is one of the most crucial steps for cracking the JEE Main, the candidates need to devote a lot of time and effort.

Below given are some of the important JEE Main preparation tips. 

  • Know JEE Main syllabus thoroughly, and understand the JEE Main paper pattern, JEE Main question pattern, as well as JEE Main exam topics.
  • Check if there is anything new in JEE Main 2023 exam pattern. 
  • Make a realistic timetable and map out a preparation plan, try to follow a strict 3 months preparation plan.
  • Invest in quality reference material and practice books. Coaching centres can help with gathering information and adequate guidance. Practice mock tests and previous year's question papers.
  • Do not neglect your health and well-being, they are important too. Rest well and eat well.
  • For your exam day strategy, try to keep calm and focused, and go according to a plan that is the most time-efficient for you.


Will the JEE Main syllabus and JEE Advanced syllabus be the same?

No, the syllabus for JEE Advanced is not same as JEE Main. There are many topics that are a part of JEE Main syllabus but are not asked in JEE Advanced.

Is the JEE Mains 2023 syllabus the same as CBSE Class 12?

The JEE Main 2023 syllabus is similar to the Class 11 and 12 syllabi of CBSE. JEE Main 2023 Syllabus includes many topics from Class 12.

Will the JEE Main 2023 have questions from Class 11 also?

JEE Main syllabus covers topics from 11 and 12. So, a lot of chapters from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics become equally vital both for Boards and the JEE Main Exam from both the classes.

Can there be a reduction in JEE Main 2023 Syllabus?

There are speculations on JEE Main Syllabus reduction for the academic year 2022-23. However, NTA has not made any changes to JEE Main 2023 Syllabus. Instead, the authorities have provided an internal choice in JEE Main just like last year. Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics now have 30 questions each. All three of these subjects have two sections. Section A contains 20 MCQs and Section B contains 10 Numerical value-based questions. Candidates have to attempt any five questions out of 10 in section.
