Difference between JEE Main Syllabus & JEE Advanced: Read to know more
(Feb 8, 2018): JEE Main is conducted by CBSE for admission in B.E, B.Tech, and B.Arch courses in top engineering colleges across the country. Candidate’s result of JEE Main is the eligibility criteia for JEE Advanced, the examination that enables the candidate to get enrolled in IITs, NITs, CFTIs and IIITs.

Both the engineering examinations are objective type and are meant for candidates seeking admission in top colleges offering technical education. However, there is a slight difference in the syllabus for both the stages. Let’s discuss the same in brief.

Syllabus Difference in JEE Main and JEE Advanced

Candidates need to prepare for both the exams individually as the topics covered differ for each stage. To clear this distinction, we have discussed the topics candidates are tested upon in each exam.

Semiconductors; semiconductor diode: I-V characters in forward and reverse bias: diode as a rectifier; I-V characteristics of LED, photodiode, solar cell and diode; Zener diode as a voltage regulator. Transistor as a switch. Transistor action, junction transistor, characteristics of a transistor: transistor as an amplifier and oscillator.

Topics covered in Chemistry Section of JEE Advanced but not in JEE Main

Nuclear chemistry: Property of alpha, beta and gamma rays; Radioactivity; Carbon dating, Kinetics of radioactive decay; Discussion on fission and fusion reactions; Stability of nuclei with respect to proton-neutron ratio.

General Differences Between Main and Advanced Stages of IIT JEE

The very first difference is based on the bodies conducting the two exams. JEE Advanced is conducted by the IITs on a rotational basis whereas JEE Main is conducted by the CBSE.
Clearing JEE Main exam leads the candidates to appear in JEE Advanced; whereas clearing JEE Advanced will lead the candidates to get enrolled in B.E or B.Tech. courses in IITs, NITs, CFTIs and IIITs.

JEE Main is further divided in two papers where Paper 1 is for the candidates seeking admission in B.E or B.Tech courses, while Paper 2 is for the candidates seeking admission in B.Planning and B.Arch courses. Candidates get the option of attempting Paper 1 via both online and offline modes but Paper 2 can be only attempted offline. However, while applying for JEE Advanced, a candidate is required to specify whether they want to attempt for Paper 1, Paper 2, or both.

JEE Main can be attempted 3 times consecutively, while, JEE Advanced can only be attempted for 2 years in a row.
