FAQ

JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) is the single National level entrance test to be conducted from the year 2013 for all students who seek admissions into central engineering institutions i.e. IITs, NITs, IIITs and IISERs.

According to the new pattern, the test is an amalgamation of the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) and the IIT-JEE, where the JEE Main exam will be equivalent to AIEEE, and JEE Advanced will be equivalent to the IIT-JEE.

The IIT Council ends the joint entrance examination (JEE) row by fixing a new eligibility criteria for 2013 under which successful candidates would have to be in the top 20 percentile of their respective boards. The top 20 percentile will vary across boards from year to year. For example, those who got more than 78% in CBSE last year would have made it to its top 20 percentile bracket. For UP boards, students with more than 65% marks would have been eligible.The new exam pattern for JEE 2013 was agreed upon unanimously by the IIT Council. The new formula does away with the existing eligibility criteria of 60% marks in boards. Now, candidates will first appear for the JEE (main) screening test, which will filter out the top 1.5 lakh students for the JEE (advanced) test. The final IIT ranking would depend only on the all India rank in JEE (advanced), subject to the successful students meeting the percentile criteria.Key points of new exam pattern for JEE 2013:Two-tear Exams JEE main and JEE Advanced.Top 1.5 Lakh candidates in JEE main to appear in JEE Advanced.JEE advanced to be held after 4-5 weeks after JEE Main.Final ranking in IIT to be based only on JEE Advanced subject to condition that candidates are in top 20 percentile of their respective boards.Top 20 percentile will vary from boards to board every year.

From 2013, there will be two examinations for IIT aspirants, JEE Main and JEE Advanced. The IITs, NITs and other institutions approved the conduct of a common admission examination process giving due weightage to performance in Class XII Board exams. A Joint Entrance Examination for admission to the undergraduate programmes in engineering would be conducted in two parts, JEE Main and JEE Advanced.

JEE Main

JEE Main test will be multiple choice objective type paper and will have questions from Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. For the conduct of the JEE Main examination an expanded Joint Admission Board shall be constituted including the National Institutes of Technology (NITs), other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs) and State Government representatives in an appropriate manner. CBSE will provide the administrative and logistic support for the conduct of JEE Main examination across the country.The Class XII Board/equivalent marks normalized on percentile basis through an appropriate formula plus the marks obtained in the JEE Main examination, with equal weightage, would be used by IITs for purposes of gating/screening. Only a fixed number of candidates (five times the number of the seats for admission in the IIT or a pre-fixed cut-off) screened on the basis of merit assessed on the basis of cumulative score of normalized School Board marks and performance in JEE Main examination would be eligible to be considered for admission.

JEE Advanced

After 3-4 weeks of JEE Main, JEE Advanced will be conducted. Only top 150,000 candidates from the JEE Main will be qualified to appear for JEE Advanced. Final ranking in IIT to be based only on JEE advanced subject to condition that candidates are in top 20 percentile of their respective boards The nature and modalities of the JEE Advanced shall be determined by the Joint Admission Board of IITs. The Joint Admission Board (JAB) of the IIT system would have complete control on matters such as paper setting, evaluation and preparation of the merit list, etc. over the JEE Advanced and CBSE would provide the administrative support for conduct of the examination. The proposed changes will be effective from the year 2013 and both CFTIs and CBSE would work jointly.

The NIT’s will take students directly based on JEE Main. For this 40% weightage will be given to Board marks and Remaining 60% weightage will be given to JEE Main. Several deemed universities can also use the scores of JEE Main exam to admit students after they fix a minimum percentage criteria.

A committee headed by Dr T Ramaswami, Secretary in the Department of Science & technology, has demonstrated with the help of the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), Kolkata that Board % scores across various Boards can be normalized through a statistical process & converted into percentile. The normalized percentile may be used to give 40% or above weightage in the admission process as per institute / state Govt. Policy.

Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and IT-BHU, Varanasi & ISMU, Dhanbad; 30 National Institutes of Technology (NITs); 5 Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs); 6 Indian Institutes of Science Education & Research (IISERs); Indian Institute of Science (IISc) – (only BS Course / Programme); Several other Govt. / centrally-funded institutions; Some private Colleges / universities at National level; Hundreds of State Govt. funded / controlled colleges in various states; Thousands of private Colleges in various states.

The JEE for Central Institutions shall be conducted in English & Hindi Languages. Where States intend to use the same examination for admission to State engineering institutions, the examination could be conducted in the regional language of the States too.

On personally requesting that too prior, the authorities arrange for an option.
