Initially, there was some news quoted that NTA might have changed the JEE Main Syllabus, and they might have reduced the syllabus considering the pressure students may feel by reading lots of study material and during this quarantine, many students have a strong feeling of breaking down their schedule. Many rumours flew about the change in exam pattern and syllabus but now NTA confirms that this is a big misunderstanding and exam would be held as soon as India reopens again and recover from the COVID-19.
Impact of lockdown made many students think that way because of uncertainty that the government is holding for the national level examination. Whether it is JEE, NEET, UGC etc. every exam is at the stake of uncertainty, and this is quite understandable if students are making different assumptions regarding their examination. NTA, from very starting never said to reduce the JEE Main syllabus yet, it is hard to say that they never thought about that either. The syllabus for 2021 may get reduced but no confirmation yet.
JEE Main Syllabus: Current status of the exam
Earlier, the examination was going to be conducted in the April month but due to the national level, NTA has conducted many meetings and made many concerns regarding the examination. Now the final date sheet that is revealed by the National Test Agency is 1st to 6th September. The examination will occur on different dates in different states and cities. Due to the strange situation that the whole world is facing no one was prepared for, all the decisions made by the examination authorities are yet considered in the sphere of doubts and uncertainty.
Especially in India, the government is completely bounding not to reopen the country and especially the student hubs as this is a young country and most of the country’s population is acquired by the student sector. Hence, it can become a severe risk and the spread of the disease can go to a higher rate, and in an uncontrollable manner. Here students can conclude that the situation is very critical and everyone has to keep their mind focused and prepare continuously for the competitive examination.
The government thought of conducting the examinations through the online mode but this too won’t work due to the lack of transportation facilities, internet connections and approach to every student. Then NTA decided to conduct JEE examination sooner or later and with a full-fledged syllabus that was decided earlier, there would not be any change and students should rely upon the valid sites to get these kinds of information. Every student should stay focused and calm and keep themselves updated with the valid and reliable notification published by the government and designated authorities.
How a student can prepare the JEE Main syllabus during the time of COVID
As of now, students are getting plenty of time for revision of JEE Main syllabus, so they should take the benefit of the time they are getting and use it efficiently.
- A proper routine and no kind of distraction are much-needed. It is very commonly seen amongst students that they can distract easily by relaxing and losing enthusiasm. That should not occur if someone wants to crack the national level examination.
- A good and stable mind is very necessary. In this situation of lockdown, a student may feel this feeling of boredom and compact. But if your goal and dedication are strong enough then no one can get a student distracted.
- Keep yourself motivated and acquire self-confidence. Yoga and light exercise can do wonders in the life of a person.

What is the exam date tentatively finalized by NTA?
The dates were announced by the NTA for the conduction of the JEE examination. It decided the dates to be on 1st to 6th September 2020. The examination will be held in different cities, so that hustle would not be faced by the students suddenly. If our nation would be able to overcome the COVID tragedy then an exam would be conducted on the decided date. So, students must prepare well.
JEE examination Exam Duration
The JEE main syllabus and timing will remain as it is. It will be of 3 whole Hours including all the three subject’s questions, and the subject wise question distribution will also remain the same. Other than that valid and informative updates are informed by the government sites and NTA site itself regarding the exam. Hence, a student must rely upon them only.
Can the JEE Main syllabus reduce if the timing of the examination gets reduced?
No, it won’t happen according to the sources this year. The timing of the examination will remain the same according to the latest guidelines that were published by the NTA site. But let’s suppose even if the timing of the examination gets reduced then also, the syllabus won’t get reduced for sure. The reason behind that is simple: every topic is important and putting one topic above others can’t do justice to such a high-level examination. But due to COVID impact and as CBSE has started reducing the syllabus, JEE Main syllabus for 2021 may be reduced, but no official confirmation yet from NTA.
There are a hundred different streams through which a student opt/go by the means of JEE and it definitely requires the knowledge of different fields, so choosing some topics and neglecting others cannot make any kind of fair decision. NTA will not do that for sure and also students must do elaborated studies keeping that in mind that every topic is really important and compromise with the JEE Main syllabus can snatch a JEE seat directly from them. Having said that, due to the COVID break out in 2020, the JEE Main syllabus for 2021 may get reduced.
