The National Testing Agency (NTA) has started the application process for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2024, which will be held in two sessions in January-February and April next year.

The NTA has also released the syllabus of next year’s exam in which some topics of Maths, Physics and Chemistry have been deleted.

## Deleted Topics of the JEE Main Mathematics section

- Evaluation of determinants, Elementary transformations, Test of consistency and solution of simultaneous linear equations in two or three variables using determinants (from Unit 3: Matrices and Determinants)
- Unit 5: Mathematical Inductions: Principle of Mathematical Induction and its simple applications.
- Properties of Binomial Coefficients (from Unit 6: Binomial Theorems and its Simple Applications)
- Sum up to n terms of special series; Sn, Sn2, Sn3. Arithmetico-Geometric progression. (from Unit 7: Sequences and Series)
- Rolleâ€™s and Lagrange’s Mean value Theorems, tangents and normal (from Unit 8: Limits, Continuity and Differentiability)
- Integral as a Limit of Sum (from Unit 9: Integral Calculus)
- The formation of differential equations (from Unit 10: Differential Equations)
- Translation of Axes (from Unit 11: Coordinate Geometry)
- Equations of internal and external by sectors of angles between two lines coordinate of the centroid, orthocentre, and circumcentre of a triangle, equation of the family of lines passing through the point of intersection of two lines (from Straight Lines in Unit 11: Coordinate Geometry)

**Topic Added**:

- Intercepts of a line on the coordinate axis. (Addition in the theme Straight Lines, in Unit 11: Coordinate Geometry)
- Condition for a line to be tangent to a circle, equation of the tangent, condition for Y = mx +c to be a tangent and point (s) of tangency (from Circle, Conic Sections in Unit 11: Coordinate Geometry)
- Equation of a plane in different forms, the intersection of a line and a plane, coplanar lines (from Unit 12: Three Dimensional Geometry)
- Scalar and vector triple product (from Unit 13: Vector Algebra)
- Bernoulli trials, and binomial distribution (from Unit 14: Statistics and Probability)
- Heights, and distance (from Unit 15: Trigonometry)
- Unit 16: Mathematical Reasoning: Statement logical operations and, or, implies, implied by, if and only if, understanding of tautology, contradiction, converse, and contrapositive.
