JEE syllabus and general description

General Description
The Joint entrance examination (JEE) is an all India level examination conducted by the Indian Institute of Technology (IITs) and the central board of secondary education (CBSE). The candidates aspiring to secure admission to the prestigious and premier institutions in India such as IIT, IISc, ISM and IIISER are required to clear the JEE-main entrance and JEE-advanced entrance examination. Thre are two phases of examination for JEE. 

IIT-JEE syllabus

The comprehensive review of the IIT JEE syllabus is given below.
