JEE ADVANCED

JEE Main and JEE Advanced are the entrance exams for students to get into engineering colleges in India. On scoring good marks in JEE Mains Exam you get an amazing opportunity to join some well-known engineering colleges of India like the National Institutes of Technology (NITs), IIITs, and GFTIs. JEE Main is conducted by NTA twice in a year for colleges like NITs, GFTIs, IIITs, and other engineering colleges.

JEE Advanced is conducted by the IIT colleges itself for admission into all the IITs in the country. Apart from the fact that these exams are conducted by two entirely different bodies, both these exams are closely related to each other. To appear for JEE Advanced, a candidate should qualify for the JEE Mains exam. Although both exams are conducted for admissions into engineering colleges, there are some differences between JEE Main and JEE Advanced. The following are the key differences:

Number of Attempts

Only two consecutive attempts are allowed for JEE Advanced. The rules for attempts keep changing it is important that student must check the official site

Application Fee

Eligibility Criteria

As per the JEE Advanced 2020 Eligibility Criteria, only the Top 2,50,000 qualified (including all categories) candidates of the Mains Exam can appear.The percentages of various categories of candidates to be shortlisted are: 10% for GEN-EWS, 27% for OBC-NCL, 15% for SC, 7.5% for ST, and the remaining 40.5% is OPEN for all. Within each of these five categories, 5% horizontal reservation is available for PwD candidates.

Who is not eligible?

A candidate should NOT have been admitted to an IIT irrespective of whether or not the candidate continued in the program OR accepted an IIT seat by reporting “online” / at a “reporting centre” in the past. Candidates whose admission to IITs was cancelled (for whatever reason) after joining any IIT are also NOT eligible to appear for JEE (Advanced
