The syllabus for JEE Main is same as the CBSE syllabus of Class 11 and 12. Students must clear the basics of every concept in the syllabus of JEE Main. But if you want to score higher and get into one of the top engineering colleges in India, it is important for you to know and master the most important chapters - concepts and topics. 

But how does Embibe know that certain chapters are more important than others?

Embibe's data warehouse contains a  of questions and answers from thousands of exams conducted by various boards and institutes. This includes questions from JEE previous years' question papers too. All these questions and answers have been tagged with the relevant concepts and difficulty level. 

Also, Embibe has:

  • broken down the entire syllabus of JEE Main into almost 12,000 concepts
  • been able to find out that the number of new concepts introduced every year is reducing with passing time and right now 30 percent of the total number of concepts are in the definitive list of important chapters; in JEE Main 2017, the newly added concept constituted only 4.35 percent of the whole paper.

Based on the collected data, Embibe has classified the entire syllabus of JEE main into four categories:

  • High Weightage, Low Effort - These are the most important group of chapters. You can master them easily.
  • High Weightage, High Effort - These are the second most important group of chapters which are a bit more difficult than the first group. However, this group has high weightage like the first group and you must master these chapters. 
  • Low Weightage, Low Effort - These group of chapters have low weightage but are easy to master. Finish these chapters only after you have finished the first two groups.
  • Low Weightage, High Effort - You can ignore these chapters as they have low weightage and takes more effort to finish.
