Here are some highlights from the JEE exam:

In India, the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is a highly competitive engineering entrance examination.
The first phase of the JEE exam is JEE Main. The National Testing Agency (NTA) administers it for admission to undergraduate engineering programs. JEE Main serves as the qualifying exam for students who wish to take JEE Advanced.
JEE Main is used as a criterion for admission to various engineering colleges and courses in India, including IITs, NITs, and IIITs.
JEE Main scores are used to determine eligibility for JEE Advanced and other Indian engineering colleges.

JEE is divided into two parts:

1. JEE Main and

2. JEE Advanced.

Candidates must have passed Class 12 or an equivalent examination with at least 75% marks (65% for SC, ST, and PWD candidates) to be eligible for the JEE Main examination.

    Each question is worth four points, and each incorrect answer is worth one point less.
  2. Paper 2- This will qualify the candidate for either B.Arch or B.Planning admission.
    The exam has three sections: mathematics, aptitude, and drawing.
    The first section (Mathematics) contains 30 multiple-choice questions.
    The second section (Aptitude) contains 50 multiple-choice questions.
    Section 3 (Drawing) consists of two questions designed to assess drawing ability.

    The paper is three hours long
  3. JEE Advanced is used to gain entry into Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs).
    JEE Advanced is made up of two papers: 1st and 2nd Papers
    Multiple choice and numerical answer questions are included in both JEE Main and JEE Advanced.
