Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is an objective based common engineering entrance examination which is conducted for admission in various engineering colleges and courses all over the country.
JEE Advanced is regarded internationally as one of the most challenging engineering admission tests. It is conducted by IIT Madras.
JEE consists of two parts:
Only those candidates who have cleared the JEE Main examination are eligible to appear for the JEE Advanced examination. This is a national level examination and is conducted every year in April.
JEE Advanced is conducted after the results of JEE Mains are declared.
Every year 2,00,000 candidates sit for JEE Advanced but in 2017 the number of students appearing for JEE Advanced will be increased by 20,000.
JEE Advanced will now seat 2,20,000 candidates as of the year 2017.
The participating colleges for the same include:
Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs)
Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology, Rae Bareli (RGIPT)
Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore (IISc)
Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research (IISER): Bhopal, Kolkata, Mohali, Pune, Thiruvananthapuram, Tirupati
Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST)

Top Stories on JEE:
The top stories regarding JEE Main and JEE Advanced as per The Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India are:
Only 254 candidates took the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) conducted by the IITs and IISc Bangalore early this month across six foreign cities: Addis Ababa, Colombo, Dhaka, Dubai, Kathmandu and Singapore.
Only two students took the test in Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital, IIT sources said. In India this month, some 9.23 lakh candidates appeared in the test, which determines MTech and PhD admissions.
In May, the IITs will hold the Joint Entrance Examination Advanced in these six foreign cities - again for the first time - to select overseas students for their BTech courses.
Latest News regarding JEE:
The latest updates to JEE Main and JEE Advanced as per The Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India are:
Let me be the first to burst the bubble and tell you that "There is no proper preparation method for JEE Main, JEE Advanced or any other exam" for that matter.
It all depends on the candidate's mental capabilities and preparation routines.
For, that the candidate first needs to understand himself. How he/she works, what he/she can adapt to; whether it is a visual aid or audios or a special way in which he/she grasps the contents.
If it is by visual aid, then how; by practising or by references.
It is imperative that you understand how you are able to comprehend the information available to you so that you can actually start your preparation.
The best part about the preparation for JEE Main and JEE Advanced is that by the time you've completed your 12th, you have completed about 60% to 70% of your preparation.
The next step is to bring out your own skills to the game.
There are different ways to prepare for JEE. Such as:
But, the real question is, "How will I do it?"
Should I stick to question papers, or should I enrol in some Coaching Centre?
Should I undergo Video Coaching session or should I just go through my old notes and do my own preparations for JEE Main and JEE Advanced?
Or is there anything else I could do to ace the test?
The thought itself clouds up your mind.
So, we suggest you find yourself first.
Go berzerker, make short notes if you're good with that. Go for coaching if you need extra help. If you're a quick learner, take the video coaching sessions.
There is no shame in getting help from an extra hand if you feel down. If you're planning to reign over the entire competition, you need all the help you can get.
If you're comfortable in studying for 3 hours a day, push it to an extra 30 minutes of revision. Revising all that you have studied has proven to bring out better results for everyone irrespective of how you study.
Don't ever compare yourself to others and consider yourself lower. They did not walk down your road and they will not be walking it any later as well.
The goal is, "To bring out the best in yourself while making a mark on the History Lines in the process."
A look back into the History Of The TITAN himself: JEE
The Programme of Action (PoA), 1992 under the National Policy on Education (NPE), 1986 visualised conducting a Common Entrance Examination on an All India basis for admissions to Professional and Technical programmes in the country.
For admission to Engineering and Architecture/Planning programmes, the Government of India saw through to a Resolution dated 18th October 2001 which laid down a 3–Exam Scheme:
This takes care of the varying admission standards in these programmes and helps in the maintenance of Professional Standards. This also solves any problems of overlapping and reduces the physical, mental and financial burden on the students and their parents which act out due to the numerous entrance examinations to be faced by a candidate.
A new concept was brought out in 2000 in the form of a screening test. This meant that before the main examination, there will be a screening examination from which only about the top 20,000 candidates will be selected for the main examination. This concept was probably introduced to reduce the load from the Main examination.
Another probable reason that crept up was that the JEE authorities and exam conductors wanted to scrutinise the capable students to a greater extent. This was easier now given that only few Answer Sheets were to be corrected and the people in charge of the evaluation had more time to look into the details of the Answers.
All this while the pattern of JEE exam was purely subjective. This means that a detailed description and the working of the problem was asked and the student was expected to answer in a stepwise manner. Marks were not only awarded for the correct answer but also for the working.
This type of Exam Pattern for JEE tested the concepts of the student more thoroughly. The examiner had a very clear idea of what the student had in mind before attempting the question. A subjective paper also provided a better scope for the student to display his knowledge and to prove how strong his fundamentals were.
This system of two different papers was abolished in the year 2006, a mere 6 years since it's introduction.
This was done as a part of some major reforms that were to be introduced in the 2006 edition of the examination.
One problem with the screening system was that the small time gap between the announcement of results and the commencement of the JEE Mains exam. The students who, after attempting the screening paper, devoted their time to the preparation for the Mains paper, cursed the system when they found out that they had not cleared the screening exam.
According to them, they could have devoted this time to the preparation of some other examination. Also, the students who missed clearing the screening cut-off by a mark or two considered themselves extremely unlucky and were broken down. The cumulative effect of all these disadvantages was the abolition of screening system in the beginning of the year 2006.
Probably the biggest change in the history of IIT JEE was that the pattern of the examination was changed from subjective to objective. This was an extremely drastic change and was also criticised by many. The change was said to be a step towards the reduction of the role of coaching institutes in the successful clearing of JEE.
This sudden turn of events in the JEE paper exam pattern caught many students of 2006 batch off guard. Objective questions meant that there was no longer a need of any working, hence only the answer mattered. Most of the questions now had options with them making the derivation of answer a bit easier. Some argued that this system encouraged the students to answer the questions by chance, but actually it was the reverse.
With the introduction of an objective paper in JEE, the concept of negative marking was also introduced. Many questions had a catch, a wrong answered fetched the student negative marks. So, in a way, answering by chance was actually strongly discouraged. This objective pattern is carrying on till date.
The JEE pattern has undergone many changes. Since 2010 candidates are given paper copies of their answers, and cutoffs are announced.
This transparency was achieved after a tenacious legal war waged by IIT Kharagpur professor Rajeev Kumar, who was nominated for the National RTI Award 2010 for his crusade. Since 2013-14, JEE has changed a lot and recently adopted new online admissions and application selection procedures which were not available in recent years.
Last September 2013, the Joint Admission Board’s decision to continue with the two-phase JEE pattern (one would take Main first and Advance later on if eligible) for IITs in 2014, which was approved by the IIT Council. Colleges like Indian Institute of Science and Research (IISER), Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology (RGIPT) and others uses the score of JEE Advanced candidates for admission. These colleges are non-participant institutes of Central IIT JEE Advanced advising of which all IITs and ISM are members.
Though the basic pattern of the examination remains the same, the type of questions and their difficulty keep changing every year. Various types of questions have been tried till now.
The JEE Board refreshes the pattern of the examination every year. This dynamic nature is built to ensure the merit-based selection and genuineness of the JEE Main entrance test. This is also done to oppose the coaching culture widely followed as a means of preparation for this exam. To further clarify the process of admission by merit, JEE Admission Board plans to replenish the exam structure from 2017.
As per the conclusions brought out by the JEE Board (CBSE) during December 2015 - February 2016, JEE Main, from 2017 onwards will comprise a compulsory "Science Aptitude Test" as the first phase of the exam and then the final objective paper as the rank decider. JAB bets that this aptitude test cannot be gamed by coaching institutes and thereby is a true merit process of selection.
And yet, the list of candidates who want to be known significantly in JEE Main increases day by day.
The first IIT to be established was IIT Kharagpur in the year 1951.
Later on, as the need for more such premier institutes was felt, IITs were established in Mumbai, Delhi, Madras and Kanpur before the year 1960. The sixth IIT campus at Guwahati was established in 1994 while NIT Roorkee gained the status of an IIT in 2001.
Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, on the 1st of October, 2003 announced plans to create more IITs "by upgrading existing academic institutions that have the necessary promise and potential". Subsequent developments led to the formation of the S K Joshi Committee in November 2003 to guide the selection of the five institutions which would become the five new IITs. Based on the initial recommendations of the Sarkar Committee, it was decided that further IITs should be spread throughout the country.
Thus, in 2008, 5 more IITs were opened; namely Bhubaneshwar, Hyderabad, Jodhpur, Patna and Ropar, and 2 new IITs were built up in Mandi and Indore in the year 2009 along with IIT Gandhinagar, which was already scheduled for the year.
Over the past few years, there have been a number of developments toward establishing new IITs.
In 2012, IIT Varanasi was established despite being found in the year 1919. And in the past few years, we have received a few new institutions as well; IIT Palakkad, IIT Tirupati, IIT (ISM) Dhanbad, IIT Bhilai, IIT Goa, IIT Jammu and IIT Dharwad.
Students who have taken admission tests in IITs and ISM Dhanbad cannot take the JEE Advanced exam next year. But it would not be a case with IISER, RGIPT and other institutes because they only use the JEE Advanced score for the basis of admission and they are not associated with IIT central counselling.
Plans have also been made to open IITs outside India, though not enough progress has been made in this regard.
All the IITs provide on-campus residential facilities to the students, research scholars and faculty. The students live in hostels (sometimes referred to as halls) throughout their stay in the IIT.
Students in all IITs must choose among National Cadet Corps (NCC), National Service Scheme (NSS) and National Sports Organisation (NSO) in their first years. All the IITs have sports grounds for basketball, cricket, football (soccer), hockey, volleyball, lawn tennis, badminton, and athletics; and swimming pools for aquatic events.
Usually, the hostels' also have their own sports grounds. Moreover, an Inter IIT Sports Meet has organised annually where participants from all 16 IITs contest for the General Championship Trophy in 13 different sports.
We, ourselves at GetMyUni were interested in figuring out why JEE Advanced, along with JEE Main has been deemed one of the toughest exams to crack till date.
So, we started working on it and as of now, we have made a set of questionnaires of our own.
If you're planning on attempting JEE Advanced anytime soon, these may be of help to you.
We have a good set of questions from Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. These are all MCQ's.
You will have access to questions which are divided in a chapter-wise manner.
If that doesn't suffice for your needs, then you can refer to our Study Materials right below these questions on the same page, which refers to all the major concepts to be dealt with while attempting for JEE Advanced.
We will also be providing you with a set of questions based on the NCERT Syllabus which will cover all the important topics from each chapter.
Just go to the following link to get a hold of the documents and you can add it to your list of preparation materials as well.
We hope these would be of good use to you and that each candidate who holds these up to achieve good grades in JEE Main and JEE Advanced.
Who knows, maybe it would prove to be just what you were missing.
Either way, JEE Main is proving itself to be "THE Himayala" for Engineering aspirants and you definitely need all the help you can get.
And, JEE Advanced, the grand prize to JEE Main itself.
So, make sure you go through these prep materials and get a good view on the task at hand, JEE Main and JEE Advanced.
