IIT JEE Math Syllabus 2022 


JEE is conducted in two parts - JEE Main and JEE Advanced. The students who score amongst the top 2,50,000 in JEE Main appear in JEE Advanced and get a chance to seek admission in one of the IITs. Those who want to get admission into NITs usually aim to clear JEE Main. Mathematics is a common subject in both the IIT JEE exams. The JEE Main and JEE Advanced syllabus is given below. You can download the complete syllabus from the askIITians website and prepare accordingly.
