JEE body decided to conduct 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 (Advanced). The first 2,20,000 candidates (including all categories) based on their performance in JEE (Main) will qualify to appear in JEE (Advanced) examination. Admissions to IITs will be based on category-wise All India Rank (AIR) in JEE (Advanced) 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 XII board marks (normalized) and the remainder 60 % weightage would be given to performance in JEE (Main) and a combined All India Rank (AIR) would be decided accordingly.
The normalized Qualifying examination marks will be based on the position of the candidate in the Board (i.e. his/her percentile score). The percentile score a candidate gets in his/her board will mainly contribute to his/her normalized marks. The weightage of normalized qualifying examination marks is only for deciding ranking of JEE (Main) which will be used for admission to all Government Funded Technical Institutions (GFTIs)/ NITs/IIITs but excluding IITs.
In 2015-16, State Governments voluntarily participating in the JEE (Main) system for admission in the B.Tech/B.E. courses are Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Nagaland, Odisha, Haryana, Punjab and Uttarakhand. Therefore, the candidates seeking admission to the institutions in these states, which were earlier admitting based on their State Level Examination, are also advised to fill in the JEE (Main) application form online.
JEE conducts a single entrance exam for all engineering aspirants in India to take admission into the Engineering/Science institutions. There is no need to apply for several entrance exams. The students will be free and relaxed after appearing in a single exam. Owing to this, stress-level will be considerably reduced and a student can avoid multiple exams which pose the challenge of preparing for different syllabi and patterns. It is a substantial financial savings for parents. A simultaneous preparation of School/ Board examinations and JEE will yield better results. Introduction of JEE eliminates unnecessary wastage of time, effort & money.
The Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) 2016 has been set up by the Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD) to manage and regulate the joint seat allocation for admissions to 92 institutes for the academic year 2016-17. This includes 22 IITs, ISM, 31 NITs, 20 IIITs and 18 Other- Government Funded Technical Institutes (Other-GFTIs). Admission to all the academic programs offered by these Institutes will be made through a single platform.
