New Delhi, 3rd November 2023: The National Testing Agency (NTA) released the notification for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2024 on Friday, 2nd November. Registrations for the sessions, scheduled in January and April 2024, are now open. Candidates preparing for the JEE Main 2024 can submit their applications through the online application forms available on the examination portal,, until the specified deadline of November 30.

During the JEE Main 2024 registration process, candidates must make a payment of ₹1000 for Paper 1 (B.E./B.Tech) Paper 2A (B.Arch), or Paper 2B (B.Planning). For those applying for both papers, the fee is set at ₹2000. Notably, application fees are waived for candidates from reserved categories and all female applicants.

The syllabus for JEE Main 2024 was also released by the agency, outlining omitted topics from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. Some of the excluded topics in each subject are as follows:

It’s important to note that while certain topics have been omitted from the JEE Main 2024 syllabus, they are still included in the syllabus for the subsequent round, JEE Advanced 2024, which is held for admissions to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). While the path to admissions in various NITs, IIITs, CFTIs, and other central engineering institutions via JEE Main 2024 seems more accessible for students, admission to IITs remains challenging.

The NTA hasn’t made alterations to the JEE Advanced 2024 syllabus, maintaining the specified topics. Students should remain mindful of the differences in the syllabi for these critical engineering entrance examinations.
