  • Details of Joint Entrance Examination (JEE)

The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is an engineering entrance examination conducted for admission to various engineering colleges in India. It is divided into two different examinations: the JEE Main and the JEE Advanced. The Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) conducts the joint admission process for a total of 23 Indian Institute of Technology campuses, 31 National Institute of Technology campuses, 25 Indian Institute of Information Technology campuses, and 19 other Government Funded Technical Institutes (GFTIs) based on the rank obtained by a student in JEE Mains and JEE Advanced.


JEE Main has two papers, Paper-I and Paper-II. Candidates may opt for either or both of them. Both papers contain multiple-choice questions. Paper-I is for admission to B.E./B.Tech courses and are conducted in a Computer Based Test mode. Paper-II is for admission in B.Arch and B.Planning courses and will also be conducted in Computer Based Test mode except for one paper, namely the 'Drawing Test' which shall be conducted in offline mode. From January 2020 an additional Paper - III is being introduced for B.Planning courses separately.


Due to the pandemic in 2020, JEE Main 2021 has a change in paper format and number of attempts. Now there will be 20 single choice questions and 10 numerical questions out of which only five numerical questions are to be attempted. The marking scheme is the same as earlier i.e. for SCQs, +4 marks for correct answer and -1 marks for incorrect answer and 0 marks for not answered, and for numerical type questions, +4 marks for correct and 0 for incorrect. The number of attempts is now increased to four. JEE Main, unlike JEE Advanced, has a fixed exam structure and is not subject to change every year. The top students who take the JEE-Main qualify for the JEE-Advanced examination.
