The JEE (Advanced) is conducted by the seven zonal Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) under the guidance of the Joint Admission Board (JAB). The performance of a candidate in this examination will form the basis for admission to the Bachelor’s, Integrated Master’s and Dual Degree programs (entry at the 10+2 level) in the IITs and the Indian School of Mines (ISM).
Type of Examination
- The examination consists of two question papers, Paper 1 and Paper 2, each of 3 hours duration held on the same day.
- Each question paper will consist of three separate sections viz., Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics.
- The question papers will consist of objective type (multiple choice) and numerical answer type questions designed to test comprehension, reasoning and analytical ability of candidates.
- Incorrect answers to some of the questions will be awarded negative marks.
- The question paper will be in either English or Hindi. Candidates must exercise the choice of question paper language while registering for JEE (Advanced) 2015. Change of question paper language will NOT be entertained after the registration.
