JEE Advanced Syllabus 2022 will be released by IIT Bombay along with the notification in May 2022 on the official website- No announcements have been made regarding the change in JEE Advanced Syllabus 2022 and it is expected to remain the same However, IIT has released the revised JEE Advanced 2023 Syllabus. Candidates who plan to appear for JEE Advanced 2023 need to plan their preparation strategy based on the revised syllabus. Download JEE Advanced Syllabus 2023 PDF

  • JEE Advanced Syllabus 2022 is based on topics taught in Class 11 and 12 Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. 
  • Authorities usually release a revised JEE Advanced Exam Pattern every year. However, there is a change in the weightage of topics every year in all the three sections- Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. 
  • JEE Advanced Syllabus is not the same as JEE Main Syllabus. JEE Advanced Question Paper consists of questions designed to test the comprehension, reasoning and analytical ability of the candidates. Check Previous Year JEE Advanced Question Papers
  • JEE Advanced is held as a computer-based test. The exam is conducted in two papers- Paper 1 and Paper 2 and the candidates are required to clear both the papers.

Geometrical Drawing Exercises in geometrical drawing containing lines, angles, triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, circles, etc. Study of plan (top view), elevation (front or side views) of simple solid objects like prisms, cones, cylinders, cubes, splayed surface holders, etc.
Three Dimensional Perception Understanding and appreciation of three-dimensional forms with building elements, colour, volume and orientation. Visualization through structuring objects in memory.
Imagination and Aesthetic sensitivity Composition exercise with given elements. Context mapping. Creativity checks through innovative uncommon tests with familiar objects. Sense of colour grouping or application.
Architectural Awareness General interest and awareness of famous architectural creations – both national and international, places and personalities (architects, designers, etc.) in the related domain.
Freehand Writing This would comprise a simple drawing depicting the total object in its right form and proportion, surface texture, relative location and details of its component parts in appropriate scale. Common domestic or day-to-day life usable objects like furniture, equipment, etc., from memory.

Syllabus FAQs

JEE Advanced Syllabus 2022 FAQs

Ques. Are Polymers, erythro/threo isomers parts of JEE Advanced 2022 Syllabus?

Ans. Yes, according to the syllabus released by IIT Roorkee, these topics are present in the syllabus of JEE Advanced 2022.

Ques. Has JEE Advanced Syllabus changed for 2022? Or is it still the same.

Ans. The only change which surprises students in JEE Advanced is – Exam Pattern. The syllabus of the exam is fixed over the years. But there are some topics that differ in JEE Main and Advanced.

Ques. Which syllabus should I focus on, JEE Main or JEE Advanced?

Ans. JEE Main is the qualifying examination for JEE Advanced. So it is better to focus on JEE Main syllabus first. After qualifying for Advanced, prepare accordingly.

Ques. Does HC Verma for Physics follow JEE Advanced Syllabus 2022?

Ans. HC Verma for Physics holds some wider topics that are neither asked in JEE Main nor in Advanced. You can skip the extra topics by verifying it through JEE Advanced 2022 Syllabus released by the official authorities.
