Blueprint for JEE Mains

The national testing agency has given out the syllabus for the jee mains for the year 2020.

The syllabus of jee mains is divided into three parts—mathematics, physics and chemistry. The exam is computer-based, and it is for 3 hours.

A total of 75 questions will be asked in the exam: 20 multiple choice questions and 5 numerical from all the three subjects each. The multiple-choice question comes with four options. The exam has negative marking, and hence students must be cautious while filling the answers. the scoring is four marks for each correct answer and minus one for each wrong answer, unattempted questions don’t make any change in the score. The maximum marks are 300.
