Joint Entrance Examination (JEE)
JEE Exam Information
- Joint Entrance Examination (JEE Main) will be conducted by the JEE Apex Board for admission to undergraduate engineering programmes in NITs, IIITs, other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs), participating State Government Institutions etc.
- For admission to NITs, CFTIs like IIITs etc. and other participating Institutions, the merit/rank list shall be prepared based on 40% weightage to school Boards marks in class 12th or equivalent examination and 60% weightage to IIT JEE (Main). The weightage to school Board/Equivalent examination marks shall be considered only after normalization.
- The IIT JEE (Main) will also be the eligibility test for the JEE (Advanced), which the candidate has to take if he/she is aspiring for admission to the undergraduate programmes offered by the IITs/ ISM Dhanbad.
- JEE Mains shall have two papers, Paper-1 (B. E./B. Tech.) and Paper-2 (B. Arch./B. Planning.). Depending upon the course(s) candidates are seeking admission, they may take Paper-1 (B. E./B. Tech.), or Paper-2 (B. Arch./B. Planning.), or both.
- Number of Attempts:
The number of attempts which a candidate can avail at JEE (Main) shall be limited to 03 (three).
JEE Exam Eligibility
- Educational Qualification:
- For B.E/ B.Tech:
Candidate should secure minimum 45% marks (40% in case of student belonging to reserved category) in 10+2 with Physics and Mathematics as mandatory subjects along with one of the Chemistry/ Biotechnology/ Biology/ Technical Vocational subject.
- For B.Arch/ B.Planning:
Applicant must have studied Mathematics as main subject along with 50% marks in total including five subjects from a recognized board.
