SYLLABI FOR LATERAL ENTRY STREAM



The syllabi given here for JEE  2006 (Lateral Entry of Diploma Holders in Engineering and Technology) is only illustrative and not exhaustive. Since JEE  2006 is conducted with a view to preparing a relative merit list only for admission, the decision of the JEE – 2006 Committee as regards to the scope of the syllabi is final.


This paper is common to all the disciplines, except Pharmacy.
