National Testing Agency or NTA has released the syllabus of JEE Main which shows a considerable amount of topics from Class 11 and 12 Physics have been removed from the syllabus of next year’s engineering entrance examination. Aspirants can download it from jeemain.nta.ac.in and plan their preparations accordingly. Also read: JEE Main 2024 Syllabus: Deleted topics of Class 11, 12 Mathematics
Registrations for the session 1 of JEE Main 2024, which is scheduled for January-February, have also started.
Saurabh Kumar, Chief Academic Officer, Vidyamandir Classes shares details of the JEE Main 2024 syllabus of Physics.
The following list shared by Kumar provides a detailed analysis of the topics which are deleted from the JEE Main 2024 Physics:
