# What is the Class 11 and 12 syllabus weightage in JEE Main

As JEE Main 2019 is around the corner, candidates are looking for the syllabus weightage of the class 11^{th} and 12^{th}. JEE Main includes the questions from the subjects Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics of class 11^{th} and class 12^{th}. Along with the current chapters from class 12^{th}, you need to put equal focus on covering the class 11^{th} syllabus.

To simplify things, Physics and Mathematics from class 12^{th} have high weightage as compared to Chemistry. To put the weightage of the syllabus in simple terms, the 12^{th} syllabus has 60% weightage and class 11^{th} syllabus carry 40% weightage in JEE Main. We have provided you here with solid data-based study and weightage of the syllabus from class 11^{th} and 12^{th} in JEE Main 2019.

**Weightage of class 11**^{th}** and class 12**^{th}** in JEE Main**
