Reduction in Syllabus for JEE mains 2024 is good or bad?

The National Testing Agency (NTA) has truncated the syllabus of JEE Main 2024 scheduled between 24th January to 1st February. While many topics including States of Matter, Surface Chemistry, and Hydrogen among others have been removed from Chemistry, topics such as Mathematical Reasoning and Mathematical Inductions have been omitted from Mathematics. Physics, on the other hand, has witnessed the deletion of Communication Systems and a few topics from Experimental Skills.
Talking about the shortening of JEE Main 2024 syllable, this announcement is a bit late. By now serious aspirants must have completed the syllabus covering most of the topics that have been removed. They are now in the mode of taking tests to improve their accuracy and speed. The announcement should have come at the beginning of the academic session, in the months of April or May so that the students could have adjusted their timings well.”
JEE Main 2024 syllabus truncation: Good or bad?
GarG highlights some of the potential benefits of cutting the syllabus short. “Reduction of the JEE Main syllabus is going to be helpful for those who are not really confident about doing well in the exam. They could take this as an opportunity to boost their scores,” he observes.
The reduced JEE Main syllabus is more aligned now in terms of the balance of subjects. “Chemistry was as such very vast earlier. So, the truncation has been done proportionately for all the three subjects: Physics, Chemistry, Math. If you look at it now, the syllabus is more equal in terms of topic coverage,” says GarG
Alongside the benefits, there is a downside to the reduction of syllabus too. “It is definitely going to impact higher education because most of the removed topics are relevant for an engineering course. It is crucial to have the basics in place which these students studying according to the shortened syllabus are going to miss,” he observes.
Also, IIT aspirants are not going to benefit from this new move, believes  “Students who have a larger goal and are preparing for JEE Advanced for admission to IITs alongside JEE Main, will have to prepare for these topics despite the syllabus being shortened. In fact, this reduction is not a matter of concern to them at all,” GarG says.
Tips for JEE Main examinees
The preparatory stage of a competitive exam like JEE can be the deciding factor behind success and failure. So, it is crucial to make sure that the prep strategy is foolproof. Sharing his suggestions for engineering aspirants, Vijay GarG says, “Since the JEE Main syllabus is now more aligned to that of the Board exam, I would advise students to focus on their Board exam and along with that take a series of mock tests on the lines of the current JEE Main pattern. That way, they will not have to deviate from their Board exam preparation for JEE. This is going to help them in both the exams.”
