Chemistry Syllabus for JEE Advanced 2015 Examinations:

The Upcoming Joint Entrance Examinations are scheduled on the Sunday, the 24 May 2015. The JEE Engineering Entrance Examinations will be conducted on in two modes: JEE Mains and the JEE Advanced.

Both the Entrance Examinations modes are for the purpose of admitting aspirants and candidates to engineering and technology courses across India in public and centralized Universities and Colleges. The JEE Advanced examinations is conducted for the purpose of admissions to IIT’s and other institutes such as the Indian School of Mines (ISM)
