Joint Entrance Examination or JEE is the well-known national level engineering entrance examination.It is conducted every year throughout the country for admissions in various colleges and courses all over the country.JEE is considered as one of the toughest examinations internationally. Around 15 lakhs students compete to get admissions into 19 IITs, 32 NITs, 18 IIITs and 19 other Government Funded Technical Institutes (GFTIs). Apart from IITs,there are some institutes like the Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research ( IISERs ),Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology,Indian Institute of Science considers JEE Advanced marks for admissions.

                             ********************************** Recent Changes ************************

Earlier the admissions in NITs,IIITs and GFTIs were through the AIEEE (All India Engineering Entrance Examination ) organised by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and admissions to IITs were through the IIT-JEE which was conducted by all the IITs collaboratively.Later the whole process was changed and turned into one exam for both called as JEE having two parts JEE Main and JEE Advanced.

                           *************************** Two Parts of the Examination **********************

JEE Main is for examination to NITs,IIITs and other government funded colleges.Some private colleges also consider JEE Main marks as the part of their admission process.JEE Main is also the first step for the students aiming for getting into IITs as the top 2,00,000 candidates are allowed to sit into the JEE Advanced. Government institutions offering admissions through JEE Main considers 60% of JEE Main marks and 40% of 12th Board Marks.

JEE Advanced is the next level of the examination.For any student aspiring admission in IITs has to clear JEE Main first ,i.e.,get a rank in top 2,00,000 and then JEE Advanced examination.IITs considers only the JEE Advanced marks not the 12th Board marks but one has to be in the top 20 percentile of their Board or score 75% in the 12th Board Exams.

                                     *************************  Pattern of the examination  ************************

Earlier,AIEEE was used to be objective and IIT JEE was used to be subjective.But now the pattern of both the examinations ,i.e.,JEE Main and JEE Advanced are completely objective. JEE Main exam has two papers ,Paper-I and Paper-II.Candidates may opt for either or both of them.

--Paper 1 is for admission to B.E./B.Tech courses.It is conducted both online and offline.
--Paper-2 is for admission in B.Arch and B.Planning courses.It is conducted offline.

JEE Main has a fixed pattern of having 90 questions with +4 for each correct response and -1 and for every wrong response.

The pattern for JEE Advanced on the other hand is quite unpredictive.Every each the examination surprise students with new marking schemes and challenging questions.The exam consists of two papers each of 3 hr duration.The sum of marks scored in each of these papers is considered.

                                   ************************ Counselling Process ***********************

JEE Advanced result is generally declared before JEE Mains final result as IITs are foremost engineering colleges in the country.So students can try to get into it and then try to get admission into NITs if not satisfied by the offer of IITs. Earlier,counselling of both the exams were conducted independently ,i.e.,counselling of JEE Main was conducted through CSAB (Central Seat Allocation Board) and that of the JEE Advanced was conducted by JAB(Joint Admission Board). But now they both are united to conduct a common counselling for the two exams of JEE.They joint board of the two is called as JoSAA ( Joint Seat Allocation Authority ).
