JEE Syllabus For NRIs
Syllabus of Engineering Colleges in India for NRIs
Are you an NRI and planning to prepare for the JEE Main to return India to pursue engineering from the toptier engineering colleges of India like IITs, NITs and CFTIs?
Then, you’ve hit the perfect stuff and we direct you through the roadway you should head for.
It’s apparent every NRI’s prospective engineering colleges are IITs, NITs, IIITs and CFTIs. So, you’ve to work pretty hard to onboard these prestigious premier engineering colleges.
Prior preparation, you should be familiar with the syllabus/topics you’ve to prepare for the JEE . So, we walk you through the syllabus of both JEE Main (for DASA scheme) so that you shouldn’t deviate and entirely focus on your preparation.
Note: According to the latest update from DASA, from 2021 onwards, JEE Scores will be made mandatory for NRI/PIO/OCI Students to be eligible for DASA & CIWG Schemes. Hence, 2020 will be the last year when SAT 2 scores will be considered for DASA/CIWG Scheme.

DASA / CIWG & JEE FAQ 202222
Answer: Yes, DASA Scheme as well as its subset (the CIWG Scheme) will be available for admissions in the academic year 202223.
By applying under these scheme, students can take admissions in NITs, IIITs, CFIs & SPAs. The only difference from 2021 is that JEE Main Rank will be considered valid, not SAT 2.
Answer: No. As notified on the official website of DASA, SAT 2 Scores or SAT Subject Scores will no longer be valid from 2021 onwards to take admissions under DASA & CIWG Scheme.
Answer: The benefit with JEE is that the students who happen to be eligible for JEE Advanced (decided on the basis of JEE Main Results), can take JEE Advanced Exams to try for admissions in IITs, the most premier engineering Institute in India.
The same wasn’t possible with SAT 2 because IITs dont intake students on the basis of SAT 2 Scores. If students can’t clear JEE Advanced, they can still take admissions in NITs, IIITs, CFIs & SPAs on the basis of JEE Main Rank.
The eligibility criteria for DASA 2022 & CIWG 2022 will remain the same as it is for 2021 or 2020. There are no changes in the eligibility criteria yet announced officially by DASA. Visit here, to check your DASA Eligibility.
Answer: NRI, PIO, OCI Students who are in grade 11th (in 2020) and will be appearing for grade 12th final exams in 2022, are eligible for JEE 2022 to apply under the DASA 2022.
If you are in grade 12th (in 2021), you must be appearing for grade 12th final exams in 2022. Hence you will be giving SAT 2 for applying under DASA 2022.
If in case you wish to take an year extra just for exam preparation, then the year will be 2022 & hence you will have to take JEE Main to apply under DASA 2022.
Ans: Because DASA released this notification on 4th of April on its official website (https://dasanit.org/). There are 100% chance that this notification is a final one.
No detailed circular has been released as of now but as soon as any such updates arrive, you can find them on our website.
Answer: This is completely unpredictable. But there seems to be less chance that it will be withdrawn. The NRI, PIO, OCI Students who wish to apply for DASA / CIWG 2022 (& years after 2022) must start preparing for JEE Main.
Answer: No changes have been made in the qualifying exam criteria for DASA 2022. Students must have a minimum of 60%, or equivalent, in Grade 12 Exams (of their respective boards) & must have successfully completed Maths, Physics and one of the subjects from (Chemistry, Biotechnology, Computer Science, Biology) in Grade 11th & 12th.
Answer: The applicants must be thoroughly aware of the syllabus & pattern i.e. revolving around the NCERT textbooks for class 11th & 12th.
This is because JEE Syllabus is based on the NCERT Text books. The students must also practice using various reference books /online test series/ JEE coaching online/ mock tests/ previous years papers in order to crack JEE 2022 for applying under DASA 2022 or CIWG 2022.
Answer: The JEE cutoff varies every year because of the percentile system. Hence, the exact cut off cannot be mentioned. Every year, JEE cutoff is announced at the time of JEE Result Declaration & it is valid only for that particular year.
Answer: Based on the tough competition students have in India, it is very necessary for students to make extra efforts to clear JEE Main or Advanced. In India, when science students enter grade 11th, they take up tuitions or coaching to help them prepare for JEE Main.
Because the JEE Syllabus is based on NCERT Textbooks which are used in Grade 11th & 12th, it also helps them prepare for their school exams / board exams. Ideally, 2 years of JEE preparation (coaching, previous 40 years questions practice, test series) is needed for students who want to clear JEE Main.
Hence, it is highly recommended for NRI , PIO, OCI Students to take JEE Coaching if they wish to secure a seat in NITs, IIITs, CFIs or SPAs under DASA / CIWG Scheme 2022.
Answer: Whether you are an NRI Student residing in UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Singapore, or anywhere in the world,
Testprepkart has been providing online coaching for JEE & various other entrance exams with proven results. Our online classes are live & completely interactive encouraging the interactions between students and the teachers. We also equip our students with up to date study materials, online test series, doubt clearing sessions. You can book a free demo session with us.
Answer: Observing this pattern of how DASA has been allowing NRI Students to submit their JEE 2 scores through their college board account, there are high chances that from session 202223 onwards, NRI Students might be made to submit their JEE Main Rank to DASA through their JEE Main account.
TestprepKart offers guidance and a range of resources to help students looking for schools and financial assistance.
