Class 12th Syllabus Reduced By CBSE: How Will This Affect JEE Main 2021?
Last updated on July 10th, 2020 at 05:20 am
The Ministry of Human Resource Development invited suggestions on reframing the curriculum of Class 9th to 12th. These suggestions were invited amid the loss of classroom education and delay in exams & results due to the countrywide lockdown amid COVID19 pandemic. After receiving around 1.5k suggestions from educationists, CBSE has decided to rationalize the syllabus of class 9th to 12th by up to 30%. The core concepts have been retained while a few topics from various books have been deleted.

Education Minister of India, Mr Ramesh Pokhriyal, also tweeted about the reduction in CBSE Syllabus.
📢Considering the importance of learning achievement, it has been decided to rationalize syllabus up to 30% by retaining the core concepts.@PMOIndia @HMOIndia @HRDMinistry @mygovindia @transformIndia @cbseindia29 @mygovindia
— Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank (@DrRPNishank) July 7, 2020
What Chapters and Topics Have Been Reduced?
The reduction in syllabus has been in accordance with the amount of days lost. While many students want the complete academic calendar to be rescheduled, while retaining all the topics, Mr Pokhriyal has assured all core topics have been retained. In order to check the revised curriculum of CBSE for 2021 students can visit this page – CBSE Revised Curriculum 2021. Given below is the reduced syllabus of PCM for Class 11th and 12th (combined).

Certain topics from each chapter have been removed from the syllabus, while few less important chapters have been completely scrapped. This will help students prepare for the board exams much more efficiently.
How Will This Shape JEE Main 2021 Syllabus?
MHRD or NTA has not announced any reduction in syllabus for the JEE Main 2021 exam or NEET 2021. Although, as per the analysis, the weightage of reduced syllabus in CBSE has already been close to nil in JEE Main in past years. There are certain topics which are important to learn for advanced concepts. But, due to differences in curriculum, students will have to depend on the various coaching institutes for learning these topics. A lot of coaching institutes started online classes around the month of April 2020. This was in order to make sure all the topics are covered, without any delay. It is yet to be analysed if there will be any reductions in JEE Main Syllabus and how it can affect the learning of each and every aspirant.
JEE Main 2020 was recently postponed until 1st to 6th September 2020. There has been no reduced syllabus for the current year as notified by NTA. Questions are being raised for JEE Advanced 2021 too, as the syllabus for JEE Advanced is much more difficult than CBSE or JEE Main Syllabus.

JEE Main Physics Syllabus (Updated): Important Topics, Weightage, Paper Analysis
Last updated on August 26th, 2020 at 05:57 pm
NTA, which is now the conducting authority for JEE Main, provides JEE Main Physics Syllabus 2020. This year it has made some changes in the exam pattern of the examination. However, it has been clarified that there is no change in JEE Main Syllabus 2020 or JEE Main Physics Syllabus due to the ongoing COVID19 pandemic.
 JEE Main 2020 will be a ComputerBased Mode (CBT) exam.
 Students can practice JEE Main Mock Tests for a better understanding of CBT.
 Now, JEE Main Physics section will hold 20 objective type questions and 5 numerical value questions. These 5 numerical questions won’t have any negative marking.
 Meanwhile, JEE Advanced Syllabus 2020 has few additional topics which require higherlevel understanding.
Update: NTA has launched ‘National Test Abhyas’ for practising daily mock tests. Read More
The JEE Main Syllabus is pretty vast and it usually takes at least 2 years to master everything.
 Also, NTA JEE Main Physics Syllabus is considerably similar to the CBSE Curriculum.
 So, the syllabus contains two sections – A and B.
 Section A pertains to the Theory Part which holds 80% of the total weightage.
 Meanwhile, Section B contains Practical Part (Physics Experimental Skills) with 20% weightage.

JEE Main Paper Attempting Tips
No doubt preparation is the prime way to crack competitive exams like JEE Main. But we should keep in mind that mere preparation is not enough. Knowing how to attempt the JEE Main paper is equally important. Below given are some general paper attempting tips that will help you to score good marks in the examination.
Section Attempting Order: According to experts and past trend analysis idle paper attempting order should be in the following manner first Chemistry, then Maths and Physics last. The logic behind this is that Chemistry has more factbased questions and the level of logical questions rises from Chemistry to Maths to Physics. It is easier to solve factbased questions than solving questions with calculations. This way students can secure some marks before moving forward to the tougher parts. However, the students’ command in each subject also plays an important role here.
Segregation of Questions: Segregation of questions in terms of their difficulty level is important. On average in JEE Main paper 30 easy questions are expected. This clearly means that 120 marks can be secured easily. Securing these 120 marks will help students to get themselves ranked among 2,00,000 candidates.
Elimination: The trend analysis shows that (2025%) of questions in the Mathematics section can be solved using substitution and elimination methods. This means that the students need to substitute the answer from the multiple choices in the question and then eliminate the wrong answers. This method saves time and gives the correct answer almost every time. In some other questions also, the answers can be eliminated by using logic.
Solving Previous Year Papers: This tip is very much effective; solving previous year papers and analyzing results. This way you can locate your stronger and weaker topics. Knowing your strength will help to understand which questions you should attempt first and secure some marks.
Accuracy: It is always preferable to attempt questions of the topics you have great command rather than focusing on weaker areas. This way you will save your time and energy. Also, there is a higher chance of scoring good marks if there is a minimum negative marking.
Don’t Over Attempt: students need to keep in mind that the number of correct answers has more weightage than the number of attempted questions. Students must attempt only those questions which they are confident about. Solving extra questions only increase the chances of negative marking. Skipping the questions which seem too difficult will be a smart move to save time and candidates to dedicate more time to solve easier questions.
Time management: After attempting the exam it is important to revise the attempted questions in order to locate possible errors. So, good time management will help you to save 15 min out of 3 hours to facilitate revision.
Some Numerical Value Type Questions in JEE Main Physics
Given below are some numerical value questions which have been provided in the official sample questions of JEE Main Physics. These are being introduced for the first time in JEE Main Physics section.

Ans. 90
Q2. A power line lies along the eastwest direction and carries a current of 10 A. The force per meter due to the earth’s magnetic field of 104 T is 10X N/m. The value of x is_____________.
Ans. 3
Q3. Light of wavelength 0.6 mm from a sodium lamp falls on a photocell and causes the emission of photoelectrons for which the stopping potential is 0.5 V. With the light of wavelength 0.4 mm from a mercury lamp the stopping potential is 1.5 V. Then, the work function in eV of the photocell surface is____________.
