Formerly known as AIEEE (All India Engineering Entrance Examination), Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main is an all-India entrance examination conducted by NTA (previously conducted by CBSE). Candidates looking to get into India’s leading engineering institutes like IITs, NITs, IITs, GFTIs and IIEST must clear the entrance test with good score. Qualified candidates will be ranked on both state and all-India basis. They will receive AIR (All India Rank) and SR (State Rank) ranks as per their score. To help them crack the exam, we have furnished the detailed syllabus for Mathematics subject. JEE Main Mathematics syllabus will tell you what topics or chapters the candidates should cover.
The syllabus of maths mainly comprises topics from Classes 11^{th} and 12^{th}. Students who have done well in math paper in their board exams would find the chapters quite easy. The JEE Main mathematic syllabus 2019 covers 16 Units. They are mentioned underneath:

There are two papers – Paper I and Paper II - for Joint Entrance Examination Main.
From the academic year 2019, the National Testing Agency will regulate the Joint Entrance Examination Main two times in a year (January and April). Students are allowed to take the exams; the highest score would be consider for admission into the elite technical collgeges.
