Joint Entrance Exam

The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is a screening test for admission into the Undergraduate Engineering Programs in NITs, IIITs and other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions etc.
The JEE examination is conducted in two phases: JEE Main and JEE Advanced.
For admission into the IITs, the candidate must clear both the JEE Main and JEE advanced. In this case, the JEE (Main) will also be an eligibility test for the JEE (Advanced).

The salient points are:

  1. There shall be no weightage for the 12th class marks in calculating the ranks in the JEE (Main) examination,
  2. For the candidates to qualify for the admission in the IITs/NITs/IIITs and such other CFTIs whose admissions are based on the JEE (Advanced)/JEE(Main) ranks, they should have secured at least 75% marks in the 12th class examination, or be in the top 20 percentile in the 12th class examination conducted by the respective Boards. For SC/ST students the qualifying marks would be 65% in the 12th class examination.
  3. AADHAAR Card is a must to appear for JEE MAIN. At the time of filling application form of JEE (Main), the candidates will have to enter their AADHAAR number, name, date of birth & gender which will be validated with the UIDAI’s data. In case, these particulars do not match, the candidates will not be able to fill the application form for JEE (Main)–2017.
