- But, you must give a thorough look upon the complete syllabus as there are some topics that could differ from your academic syllabus.
As per the JEE Mains Exam Pattern 2018, there will be 3 sections in Mains Paper 1 i.e. Physics, Mathematics & Chemistry, it is advised to deal with all the 3 sections with equal attention without neglecting any subject. Follow the same for Paper – 2 as well.
In JEE Mains exam, concepts taught in the NCERT textbooks will matter a lot while attempting the paper because the questions are usually picked up directly from there.
