Joint Entrance Examination

The Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India has entrusted the responsibility of conducting Joint Entrance Examination JEE (Main) to the NTA from 2019 onwards.

Admission criteria to Undergraduate Engineering Programs at NITs, IIITs, other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTI), Institutions funded by participating State Governments, and other Institutions shall include the performance in the class 12/equivalent qualifying Examination and in the Joint Entrance Examination, JEE (Main). The (B. E. /B. Tech.) of JEE (Main) will also be an eligibility test for the JEE (Advanced), which the candidate has to take if he/she is aspiring for admission to the undergraduate programs offered by the Indian Institute of Technology (IITs).

JEE Main Exam Pattern

Knowing the JEE Main exam pattern is vital for candidates who want to have a smooth preparation for JEE. It helps students develop a clear idea of the marking scheme, distribution of questions, sectional weightage and exam duration. There is a new pattern for JEE Main exam. There are three papers instead of two. Paper 1 is for students aspiring for B.E./B.Tech courses in NITs, IIITs, DTU, and other GFTIs whereas Paper 2 is for B.Arch. Paper 3 is for B.Planning courses offered by these institutes. Understanding the exam pattern enables candidates to gain a valuable opinion about the whole exam structure. Therefore, for better results, students are advised to get a complete overview of the paper pattern and devise a suitable study plan or strategy. JEE Main Paper 1 comprises of Maths, Physics, and Chemistry whereas Paper 2 has Maths, Aptitude, and Drawing Test. Paper 3 will consist of Mathematics, Aptitude and Planning based questions. The candidates can opt for either one or both the papers. NTA has also reduced the number of questions in Paper 1. Now there are 75 questions instead of 90 questions and the total marks allotted is also 300. All the Papers are entirely computer-based online test whereas Paper 2 drawing section is conducted offline in a pen and paper-based mode. The exam duration for all the Papers is 3 hours.

Importance of JEE Main Mock Test

Practising mock tests will help candidates get familiar with the type of questions, marks distribution, difficulty level and the topics relevant to the examination. It helps to evaluate the performance before the final examination. From an in-depth evaluation of the section-wise performance report, a suitable JEE Main preparation strategy can be planned. Regular practice of mock tests increases the speed and accuracy of students in completing the exam. It familiarizes them with the real exam scenario and drives away any nervousness for the test.

Frequently Asked Questions

JEE stands for Joint Entrance Examination. It is a national level entrance exam conducted for admission to undergraduate engineering programs in various engineering colleges across India.

JEE is conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA).

JEE is conducted in two parts - JEE Main and JEE Advanced.

To be eligible for JEE, students must have passed their Class 12th or equivalent exam with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics as mandatory subjects and have scored at least 75% marks (65% for reserved category students) in their Class 12th or equivalent exam.

JEE Main is a computer-based test (CBT) and JEE Advanced is an online and offline test. The questions in JEE are objective type questions with multiple-choice answers.

A student can take the JEE Main exam for three times in consecutive years.

The JEE score is calculated based on the marks obtained by the student in the JEE Main and JEE Advanced exams.

The number of seats available through JEE varies each year and is based on the number of seats available in participating engineering colleges.

You can apply for JEE through the official website of National Testing Agency (NTA) by filling the online application form and paying the application fee.

Yes, a student can apply for both JEE Main and JEE Advanced, but they are only eligible to appear for JEE Advanced if they meet the eligibility criteria and qualify in JEE Main.
