IIT Delhi has released the syllabus of JEE Advanced 2022 with detailed topics for Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Architecture Aptitude Test. JEE Advanced, the second phase of the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), is conducted to fill more than 10,000 seats in 23 IITs and IISc. JEE Advanced is a computerbased exam consisting of 2 papers – Paper 1 and Paper 2 with 3 hours duration each. These papers are compulsory and there is no fixed pattern for them. The question types are MCQs, numeric valuebased answer questions, etc. and the marking scheme for JEE Advanced comprises full, zero and partial marks. Architecture Aptitude Test (AAT) is held separately after JEE Advanced.
In this article, you will become acquainted with the JEE Advanced sectionwise syllabus, the difference between JEE Mains and Advanced syllabus, JEE Advanced exam pattern, marking schemes and types of questions.

JEE Advanced Syllabus – Preparation Tips
 For Engineering entrance exam preparation, Mathematics for JEE Advanced book is recommended. It has stepbystep solutions to every equation and key formulas to solve complex problems.
 Plan your preparation – Establish definite goals to be achieved in a week or month’s time and stick to it. Analyze whether you achieved the goal or not.
 Layout topics and solve numerical problems.
 Solve at least one sample paper or previous years papers.
 Focus more on understanding the topics rather than rotting.
 Mostly, questions are asked based on application of concepts and fundamentals that you have learnt.
 Practicing these papers within the time limit gives you an idea of how to attempt actual paper.
 Study difficult topics when you are at your brightest and most alert and solve difficult problems when you are wellversed with the concept.
 Try to build a suitable peer group for JEE Advanced preparation. Peer study groups provide constructive competition and keep you motivated.
