Preparation Tips for JEE Main B.Arch Syllabus

Divide your syllabus in order to study properly
Most of the students make the usual mistake of studying everything in one go, without properly dividing the syllabus and making a proper study plan. If you have, on the other hand, made a proper study plan and are dedicatedly executing it, then you are more likely to successfully complete studying your syllabus. Make sure you prepare an effective plan, which is not only easy for you to follow but also covers everything that you need to study.

Check your strengths and weaknesses from the syllabus
When you are deciding which topic to give more focus on, then don’t go by how the weightage is divided among the topics. Regardless of the importance, it is important that you pay equal attention to all the topics that are given in your syllabus. More importantly, make sure that you cover your weak topics, even if they don’t carry as many points. This will make sure that you are appearing for the exam with your full potential and subsequently, potentially get you more marks.

Previous question papers
The Internet is full of references that you can take help with during planning your study or doing your actual study. Even if you are not provided with sample papers or previous exams’ papers, then you can get all of them online. Even if you are told about the important topics, it can never hurt to go over the previous papers, in case the examiner decides to add some questions from the previous years’ papers as well. You also get a proper idea about the way questions are asked – whether in a tricky way or just the way they are mentioned in your books and reference texts.

How to approach the exam?
The most important thing to keep in mind while appearing for the JEE Main B.Arch Examination is the strategy that you will use for passing. You have to keep in mind that most of the questions don’t have negative marking and are numbered. Make sure that you don’t waste all of your time answering the questions that are difficult; instead, complete the other sections which are easier to solve for you. It would be much better if you solve them first, then use all your remaining time you are finding difficult – this will make sure you will get your passing marks and even get that rank you want to achieve.

A clear head and calm mind
Mostly, students appearing for such competitions are out of their minds, worrying about the paper and how it will go and what will happen afterwards. This is what you need to avoid during this particular exam. JEE Main Architecture students should be able to have a clear head and calm mind, not just during you’re giving the exam but also before and after those three hours. A clear mind and a calm head would also make sure you are not stumped in the exam in the face of difficult questions.
Books to Refer for JEE Main B.Arch Syllabus
There might not be many reliable books that you can refer to. But there are definitely some trustworthy ones which students refer for a detailed study of JEE Main B.Arch Syllabus. Other than the usual textbooks that students referred to in the previous years (especially for mathematics), given below are some of the latest books that you can refer and study from. These books are wholesome and not just give complete information to the JEE Main B.Arch Syllabus, but also act as an introduction to the curriculum of B.Arch degree:
S.No  Book’s name  Author’s name 
1.  A Complete SelfGuide for B.Arch Entrance Examination  P.K. Mishra (Arihant) 
2.  Complete Architecture Entrance Guide  Ashok Goel and Arjun Kamal 
3.  Mathematics XI & XII  R.S. Agarwal 
4.  Elementary Mathematics  DoroFeev, Potapov 
5.  Higher Algebra  Hall & Knight 
6.  Verbal and Nonverbal Reasoning Book  R.S. Aggarwal 
7.  B.Arch/NATA/JEE Main Offline Drawing Test  Nimish Madan 
If you are making an action plan on the basis of this syllabus, there are a handful of important points students need to remember. Make a small note of all the important points and formulas and go over it while revising or even the day before the exam; after studying a chapter or a concept, make sure you remember it by solving some practise questions on those topics; there is also an option of giving a JEE Main mock test online, which can help you see where you are now, after your thorough preparation.
There is no doubt that JEE Main B.Arch is going to happen, even if it happens directly into the year end. This means that the students need to be alert about any kind of updates and also sidebyside, should keep on studying with as much dedication that is possible, which is particularly hard as there is no guarantee about anything right now whatsoever. Students are advised to stay focused and not lose any hope they might be harbouring for their dream to become an architect.
JEE Main 2020 Syllabus not reduced, says NTA
Last updated on May 11th, 2020 at 09:52 am
With a lot of news reports mentioning reduction of the syllabus in new academic sessions for JEE Main and NEET and other examinations due to delay caused by Coronavirus (COVID19) outbreak and the countrywide lockdown, it is natural that rumours about the current session of JEE Main 2020 were bound to spread. In a news report published by NDTV, an NTA official has clarified that there will be no reduction in the syllabus for JEE Main 2020 which is scheduled for 18th to 23rd July 2020 now. NTA is the official conducting agency for JEE Main and NEET, which comes directly under the Ministry of Human Resources Development.
Sorting out rumours about the exam
Rumours about the reduction in the syllabus were emerging stating that the syllabus for JEE Main 2020 has been reduced due to the distress caused by COVID19 outbreak and the subsequent lockdown imposed by the government to prevent the spread.
“Do not believe the rumours. The syllabus for both JEE Main and NEET examinations remains the same”, said the NTA official.
Mr Ramesh Pokhriyal has stated in the live session held on Facebook and Twitter, as well as, in a separate statement with Indian Express that the syllabus for the upcoming academic year will be reduced according to the time period lost. There were no mentions about the current year syllabus due to which speculations from the internet started emerging.
With the postponement of the exam dates and the JEE Main new dates set for July 3rd week, it was needless to say that the exam syllabus remained the same as before. Moreover, students now have a reasonable, rather sufficient time to prepare for the examination as the exams have been delayed by over 3 months. Aspirants of the JEE Main examination usually start preparing right from the start of Class 11th and some even start from class 10th.
JEE Main and Advanced New Dates Announced
New dates for JEE Main 2020 were announced recently by Union HRD Minister, Mr Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’. He announced that the JEE Main 2020 will be conducted from 18th to 23rd July 2020. The exam was previously postponed twice by the NTA. He also announced the new dates for NEET 2020 which will now be held on 26th July 2020.
JEE Advanced 2020 dates have also been announced by MHRD. It is the screening test for admissions to IITs and will be held on 23rd August 2020. Only top 2.5 lakh candidates of JEE Main are allowed to take JEE Advanced.
