JEE Advanced Syllabus 2020, Important Topics, Best Books to Prepare

Updated on

IIT Delhi has announced the JEE Advanced Syllabus 2020 on its official website along with the information bulletin. The syllabus will have Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, based on the FYJC and SYJC’s portion of Science stream. The syllabus for JEE Advanced is vast, and the authorities accurately advise the students to start their studies to cover the syllabus. This year, the JEE Advanced syllabus is focused more on the practical applications, rather than just the theories and concepts. While the syllabus for JEE Advanced remains unchanged every year, the weightage of each topic of the syllabus changes, so that students can’t be alerted by the last year’s topics and their weightage, thus making them study every part of JEE Advanced syllabus.

JEE Advanced 2020 – Exam Highlights

  • Study and analysis of the top view, front and side views regarding the solid but simple objects, from prisms to cubes, among others.

Three-Dimensional Perception

  • Understanding and analysing three-dimensional forms, in the light of building elements, colours along with volume and orientation.
  • Memorizing structures and visualizing these objects on the basis of memory only.

Imagination and Aesthetic Sensitivity

  • Comprehensive composition with the help of given elements.
  • Creativity check with the help of innovative testing of familiar objects.
  • Context mapping and sense of colour application.

Architectural Awareness

  • Full-depth knowledge of popular architectural masterpieces, nationally and internationally.
  • Information about the related places and personalities, including the architects and designers behind the creation of particular architecture.

Freehand Writing
