The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is a combined test for admission to the first year of various courses in Engineering and Science of fifteen Indian Institute of Technology, located at Kharagpur, Mumbai, New Delhi, Chennai, Guwahati, Kanpur & Roorkey; the new IITs are Gandhi agar, Ropar-Punjab, Patna, Hyderabad, Bhubaneswar, Rajasthan, Indore and Mandi.

The JEE scores are also considered, by Institute of Technology Banaras Merchant Navy; for their Engineering and Science courses, Institute of Technology Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research at Mohali, Pune, Kolkata, Bhopal and Thiruvananthapuram, Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology, Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology Society (RGPIT), Indian Institute of Maritime Studies (Merchant Navy), for their Engineering & Science courses.

The JEE (Main) will be conducted by the JEE Apex Board for admission to Undergraduate Engineering Programmes in NITs, IIITs, other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions, participating State Government Institutions etc. It will also be the eligibility test for the JEE (Advanced), which the candidate has to take if he/she is aspiring for admission to the undergraduate programmes offered by the IITs/ ISM Dhanbad.

For admission to NITs, Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs) like IIITs etc. and other participating Institutions, the merit/rank list shall be prepared based on 40% weightage to school Boards marks in class 12thor equivalent examination and 60% weightage to JEE (Main).

Examination Pattern of JEE

Since 2013, JEE has changed its pattern of examination. It has been divided in two parts i.e. JEE - Main and JEE-Advanced.

JEE (Main) - 2014 shall have two papers, Paper-1 (B. E. /B. Tech.) and Paper-2 (B. Arch. /B. Planning.). Depending upon the course(s) candidates are seeking admission, they may take Paper-1 (B. E. /B. Tech.), or Paper-2 (B. Arch./B. Planning.), or both. Subject combination for each paper, type of questions in each paper and mode of examination available is given in the table below:-

Paper 1 (B.E./B. Tech.) Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics Objective type with equal Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics Pen and Paper Based weightage to Physics, Exam OR Computer Based Exam
Paper 2 (B.Arch./Planning) Mathematics - Part I Aptitude Test - Part II & Drawing Test - Part III Objective type Only Pen and Paper Based Extra Objective type Questions to test drawing aptitude

JEE Advanced

In JEE (Advanced)-2014, there will be two papers, each of three hours duration. Each of the question papers will consist of three separate parts in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. The questions will be of objective (multiple choice) type, designed to test comprehension, reasoning and analytical ability of candidates. In some sections, incorrect answers may be awarded with negative marks.

It is widely accepted that JEE is a tough examination. We, at Amity are of the view that it is not tough but a different examination. It doesn't just test the basic knowledge of the subject but also tests the ability to apply this knowledge for useful purposes. Its preparation needs a planned, systematic and conscious approach. Amity provides a comprehensive course curriculum that enables students to clear the competitive examinations confidently.
