JEE Mains is the first phase of JEE and is conducted by CBSE every year to facilitate admissions into various undergraduate courses offered at NITs, IIITs, and other centrally funded institutes. As it is one of the toughest competitive exams in the world it is obvious that its preparation demands vigorous study.It is very crucial to know about the syllabus before starting your preparations for JEE. The purpose of this separate article on JEE Mains Mathematics Syllabus 2021 is to let the student know about the content to be studied. Knowing the syllabus beforehand will help in better understanding of the topics relevant to JEE Mains 2021.

JEE Mains Mathematics is considered to be the main subject which decides your entry to the elite colleges. Clarity of Mathematics concepts plays an important role in 12th Boards or any other engineering entrance exam. To start the preparation of JEE Mains Mathematics, first go with the NCERT and then move on to other books. Practicing daily creates command over the concepts and topics of the subjects and help score more in the JEE Mains Exam. Moreover, it will help you to increase your speed and accuracy.

All the chapters of Mathematics are divided into 5 Units as follows:

  1. Algebra
  2. Calculus
  3. Coordinate Geometry
  4. Trigonometry

Now, let us see the chapters falling under all these 5 units.
