JEE Advanced Chemistry Syllabus
JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) is for aspirants who wish to get admission in Engineering, Design and Architecture courses in one of the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). JEE is held in two stages- JEE Main and JEE Advanced. JEE Main is conducted by National Testing Agency or NTA and JEE Advanced is conducted by one of the the seven Zonal Coordinating IITs namely IIT Bombay, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Kanpur, IIT Roorkee, IIT Delhi, IIT Guwahati and IIT Madras. Aspirants are eligible to appear for JEE Advanced only if they qualify for the JEE Main.
The JEE Advanced Chemistry section can be tricky compared to JEE Main. The topics may look easy to understand and remember but, in reality, the amount of time and practice each topic requires is innumerable. The Chemistry syllabus includes many formulas, balancing equations, definitions, solutions, numerical, properties and methods of preparation. It is a vast subject filled with various topics and sub-topics and all the topics are interrelated to each other, therefore, understanding each topic thoroughly is important.
JEE Advanced 2022 Chemistry Syllabus
The JEE Advanced Examination is considered amongst the most difficult qualifying examinations for students seeking admissions into Engineering, Science or Architecture undergraduate programs in Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). The exam consists of 3 sections – Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.
Among these subjects, Chemistry is comparatively more volatile but vast as a subject with more concepts to learn and understand. Extramarks is here to give your problems some solutions by providing the JEE Advanced Chemistry Syllabus 2022. Aspirants can download the Chemistry JEE Advanced Syllabus from the Extramarks website for a better understanding of the topics and their subtopics to prepare for chemistry.
