Eligibility Criteria and Syllabus of JEE main

Short introduction about JEE Main

Joint Entrance Examination is a national level competitive exam to get admission in various engineering colleges in India. It is divided into two levels i.e. JEE Main and JEE Advanced. Only those students who are clearing JEE Main can appear for the JEE Advanced and after qualifying it they can get admission in IITs. And remaining students can apply for NITs and other engineering colleges. Seat allocations will be done based on their ranking in respective examination. Both are multiple choice based exam. From 2019 JEE Main will be conducted twice in a year by National Testing Agency. For more detail click here.

JEE Main has two paper namely paper-1 and paper-2. Candidates can fill their form for either or for both paper.

  • Paper-1: It is for getting admission in BE/B.Tech colleges and it is conducted both online and offline mode.
  • Paper-2: It is for getting admission in B.Arch and B.Planning courses. It will be conducted online for Mathematics and Aptitude test and offline for Drawing test.
