Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is an all India common engineering entrance examination which is conducted for admission in various engineering colleges and courses all over the country.

In 2012, CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) announced this common examination in place of AIEEE and IIT-JEE. JEE is being conducted in two parts, JEE-Main and JEE-Advanced. JEE-Advanced is for admission in Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), and Indian School of Mines Dhanbad (to be converted into IIT)[1] and JEE-Main exam is for admission in IIITs (Indian Institutes of Information Technology), NITs (National Institutes of Technology), CFTIs (Central Funded Technical Institute) and IIEST Shibpur, for admission to its dual degree programme.[2]

There are some colleges like IISER's, RGIPT, IISc and others which use score of JEE Advanced for admission. These are not participating institutes of Central IIT JEE Advanced counselling of which all IITs and ISM are members. Any student who takes admission in IIT's or ISM cannot appear for JEE-Advanced exam next year, but the same is not the case with IISc, IISER, RGIPT and other institutes as these institutes only use JEE Advanced score for admission.

In September 2013, the IIT Council approved the decision of the Joint Admission Board to continue with the two-phase JEE pattern ("Main" followed by "Advanced") for IITs and ISM in 2014.

JEE Main[edit]

JEE-Main Exam has two papers, Paper-1 and Paper-2. Candidates may opt for either or both of them. Both papers contain multiple choice questions.

  • Paper-1 is for admission in B.E./B.Tech (online and offline).
  • Paper-2 is for admission in B.Arch and B.Planning (offline only).
  • 1.3 Million students including 316,000 female candidates appeared for JEE-Main exam in 2014.[3]

JEE Advanced[edit]

Students who qualify JEE-Mains can appear for JEE-Advanced examination. Approximately 150,000 students qualify to appear for JEE-Advanced examination.[4] [5]

  • 1.19 lakh students appeared for JEE Advanced in 2014 out of which 27,152 qualified of which 14,269 i.e. 52.55% qualified from 11 Indian cities.[6]
  • In 2015, Satvat Jagwani from Satna, Madhya Pradesh scored 469 to top the exam. According to the IIT-Bombay, 26,456 candidates qualified for admission to IITs and ISM. [7]

History[edit]

The JEE pattern has undergone many changes. Since 2010 candidates are given paper copies of their answers, and cutoffs are announced.[8] This transparency was achieved after a tenacious legal tussle waged by IIT Kharagpur professor Rajeev Kumar,[9] who was nominated for the National RTI Award 2010 for his crusade.[10]

JEE main counselling[edit]

CBSE and CSAB are two different and independent boards. CBSE conducts JEE (Main) examination and publishes the merit list. CSAB only uses the merit list published by CBSE for seat allocation purposes. In previous years the admission process was conducted through CCB (Central Counseling Board), while this year CCB has been renamed as CSAB (Central Seat Allocation Board) for completing the seat allocation process.
