The new pattern of JEE aims to create an umbrella through single combined exam for the admission to over 2500 Engineering Colleges (Govt. + Private) in the country. It minimizes over 50 different Engineering Entrance Exams to one.
JEE body has decided to commence a Joint Entrance Examination from the year 2013 for admission to the undergraduate programs in Engineering in two phases, i-e JEE (Main) and JEE (Advance). The first 1, 50,000 candidates (from all categories) based on their performance in JEE (Main) will qualify to appear in JEE (Advance) exams. Admission to IITs will be based on category-wise All India Rank (AIR) in JEE (Advance) subject to conditions that such candidates are in the top 20 percentile categories. Admission to NITs will be based on 40% weightage of the performance in class X11 board marks (normalized) and the remaining 60% weightage would be given to performance in JEE (Main) and a combined All India Rank (AIR) would be decided accordingly. The policy could also be adopted by other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs) and the other participating institutions.

Institutes Participating under JEE and their Number of Seats:

  • 17 - Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs)+IIT-BHU, Varanasi +ISMU, Dhanbad  = 10000 Plus Seats
