New Delhi, 21 January 2022 – The syllabus for JEE Advanced was recently revised to keep it on par with NCERT as well as the New Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020). This was done to put less burden on students preparing for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE). The revised syllabus brings boards, JEE Main, and JEE Advanced in line, as the curriculum is now almost similar for these three exams. This will put less burden on students as they do not have to prepare separately for each exam.
Now, as the changes in the syllabus become more apparent, the new syllabus is deemed more lengthy. However, it is structured in such a way that it is bound to provide easy scoring options for students and also help them improve on time management during preparation.
Note: The new JEE Advanced syllabus will be effective with the 2023 academic year. It is in sync with the New Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020) and matches with the NCERT curriculum. This common syllabus for boards, JEE Main, and JEE Advanced is aimed at reducing the academic burden on students.

JEE Advanced Syllabus Revised: NEP 2020 Alignment
This new syllabus is aligned with the education system prescribed by NEP 2020. As per NEP 2020, the focus is now on the internationalisation of education. This means that foreign students now have a higher chance of studying in IITs. This will also increase the competition in JEE Main and Advanced, as the difficulty level of the questions is reduced.
JEE Advanced Syllabus Revised: Syllabus Change Committee
The syllabus change committee was set up by the Joint Admission Board (JAB), where Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics faculty members of the seven main IITs (Bombay, Kharagpur, Madras, Delhi, Kanpur, Guwahati and Roorkee) were tasked to formulate the new syllabus.
Note: The revised syllabus was formulated after the committee discussed the changes with their respective departments and the faculty of non-zonal IITs.
