What is JEE Advanced Exam?

The Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced), commonly known as JEE (Advanced), is utilised for admitting students to various undergraduate programs at IITs and seven other centrally funded institutes, including the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (IISc), Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research (IISERs), Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST), Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology (RGIPT), and Indian Institute of Petroleum & Energy (IIPE).

IITs offer undergraduate programs that lead to Bachelor’s, Integrated Master’s, or Bachelor-Master Dual Degrees in Engineering, Sciences, or Architecture through JEE (Advanced). Students enrolled in dual degree programs receive both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree upon successful completion of the course content. Students pursuing a four-year bachelor’s degree at select IITs also have the option of pursuing B.Tech. (Honors) and/or B.Tech. with Minors.
Students pursuing a dual degree may also choose to pursue a minor. Additionally, B.Tech. students at several IITs have the option of pursuing an interdisciplinary dual degree, which involves obtaining a bachelor’s degree in one department and a master’s degree in another.
Under the guidance of the Joint Admission Board (JAB), the seven Zonal Coordinating IITs conduct the Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced) to evaluate a candidate’s performance. Admission to the Bachelor’s and Integrated Programs is based on the JEE-Advanced score.

JEE Advanced Exam Papers

The JEE Advanced exam is further divided into two papers :

  • Paper 1 (Maths, Physics, Chemistry): 3 hours(9 am to 12 pm)
  • Paper 2(Maths, Physics, Chemistry): 3 hours(2:30 pm to 5:30 pm)

Subject Combinations Required to Qualify

JEE Advanced exam performance is the basis of admission to various courses in engineering in all IITs

The subject combination requirements for attempting JEE is as follows:

Course Required Criteria based on Class 12th / Equivalent qualifying Examination
B.E/ B.Tech. Passed qualifying examination with Physics and Mathematics as compulsory subjects along with one of the Chemistry/Biotechnology/Biology/ Technical Vocational subject.

 

Exam Paper Pattern

In 2021 the JEE Main exam paper pattern changed as detailed in the table below:

Paper & Course Exam Pattern
Paper 1 – B.E./ B.Tech.  All subjects (Physics, Chemistry, Math) divided into Section A & B.

  • Section A had 20 MCQs in each subject, there was negative marking of -1 marks for every incorrect answer and +4 marks for every correct answer.
  • Section B had Questions with answers to be filled in as a numerical value. Candidates had to attempt any 5 questions out of 10. There was no negative marking for this Section.

 

Exam Mode & Sessions

JEE Advanced is conducted only in Computer-Based Test (CBT) mode. It consists of two papers, each of 3 hours’ duration, containing questions from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. JEE Advanced periodically alters the pattern and the nature of the questions. The actual nature of the question paper is explained in the instructions provided to the students on their computer screens during the test. JEE Advanced consistently designs the paper to evaluate students’ comprehension and analytical abilities.

 

Paper & Course Exam Mode Frequency
Paper 1 – B.E./ B.Tech.  Online Three sessions each in February, and March and four sessions each in July and August 2021 in two shifts.
