About IIT-JEE Exams

Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) is the All India Exam for admissions to the undergraduate technical courses namely, BE/B.Tech. and B.Arch. 

The JEE is being conducted by the NTA, from 2019. Earlier, till 2018, this examination was conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). 

Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is conducted in two phases:

  1. JEE Main: The JEE Main is conducted every year to select the candidates for counselling in NITs, IIITs, and GFTIs.
  2. JEE Advanced: The JEE Advanced is the second stage of the competitive exam, where the students are selected by different IITs based on their performance in the advanced stage. 

JEE Main:

National Testing Agency (NTA) conducts JEE Main for admission to the undergraduate engineering programs like BE/B.Tech. and B.Arch./B.Planning at NITs, IIITs, other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs) and the institutions funded by participating State Governments. JEE Main 2020 is conducted for admission to nearly 25,000 BE/B.Tech. seats offered in 69 institutes including NITs, IIITs and GFTIs. Apart from these, the JEE Main score is accepted by certain self-financed universities and institutions.

JEE Main 2020 is conducted in two sessions — January exam sessions followed by April. Candidates can appear in both the exam sessions. However, the best of the two exam's scores of the candidates will be considered for All India Rank.

JEE Main is also the qualifying exam for JEE Advanced. IITs do not accept JEE Main score for B.Tech. admission. Hence, the students aspiring to get themselves enrolled in IITs will also have to appear for JEE Advanced. A student will be allowed to appear for JEE Advanced, only if he clears the JEE Main cut off.JEE Main is conducted for two papers namely, Paper 1 (B.Tech.) and Paper 2 (B.Arch./B.Planning). The students preparing for Engineering should opt for Paper 1 and those who are preparing for Architecture should opt for Paper 2.

JEE Advanced:

JEE Advanced is a National Level Entrance Exam that is conducted to facilitate admissions to the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and a few other colleges. JEE Advanced is the second entrance exam after JEE Main for the students who are willing to seek admission to IITs. Every year, around 14–15 lakhs students appear for JEE Main. Candidates who clear JEE Main 2020 (Paper 1) and appear in the list of the top 2,45,000 will be eligible to appear for JEE Advanced 2020 examination.
