JEE-ADVANCED

Various engineering courses now conduct admission examinations using a common entrance exam in India called Joint Entrance Examination (JEE). The first IIT, IIT Kharagpur was established in 1951. The IIT-JEE was initially called the Common Entrance Exam (CEE); its creation coincided with that of the 1961 IIT Act. From 1978, The English paper was stopped being taken into account for counting the rank. A new concept in the form of screening test was introduced in the year 2000. This meant that before the main examination, there will be held a screening examination from which only about the top 20,000 candidates will be selected to sit in the main examination. This concept was probably introduced to reduce the load from the main examination. Another probable reason that crept up was that the JEE authorities and exam conductors wanted to scrutinize the capable students to a greater extent. This was easier now given that only few answer sheets were to be corrected and the people checking the sheets had more time to look into the details of the answers. One more fact that pattern of the JEE exam was purely subjective. This means that a detailed description and working for the problem was asked and the student was expected to answer in a step wise manner. Marks were not only awarded for the correct answer but also for the working. This type of pattern tested the concepts of the student more thoroughly. The examiner had a very clear idea of what the student had in mind before attempting the question. A subjective paper also provided a better scope for the student to display his knowledge and to convey how strong his fundamentals were. Now, coming back to the separate screening and mains question papers. This system of two different papers was abolished in the year 2006, a mere 6 years since it's introduction. This was done as a part of some major reforms that were to be introduced in the 2006 edition of the examination. One problem with the screening system was the small time gap between the announcement of results and the commencement of the mains exam. The students, who, after giving the screening paper, devoted their time to the preparation for the mains paper, cursed the system when they found out that they had not cleared the screening exam. According to them, they could have devoted this time for the preparation of some other examination. Also, the students who missed clearing the screening cut-off by a mark or two considered themselves as extremely unlucky and were broken down. The cumulative effect of all these disadvantages was the abolition of screening system beginning the year 2006.


Talking about the reforms implemented in the year 2006, probably the biggest change in the history of IIT-JEE was that the pattern of the examination was changed from subjective to objective. This was an extremely drastic change and was also criticised by many. This sudden U- turn in the JEE paper pattern caught many a student’s of 2006 batch off guard. Objective questions meant that there was no longer a need of any working, hence only the answer mattered. Most of the questions now had options with them making the derivation of answer a bit easier. Some argued that this system encouraged a student answer the questions by fluke, but actually it was the reverse. With the introduction of an objective paper, the concept of negative marking was also introduced. Many questions had a catch, a wrong answered fetched the student negative marks. So, in a way, answering in fluke was actually strongly discouraged. . JEE pattern has experienced a number of changes over the past years. The candidates were given copies of their answers and cut offs were announced since 2010 in response to the call of transparency after persistent legal struggle of IIT Kharagpur professor Rajeev Kumar, who won the National RTI Award 2010 for his victorious campaign. Though the basic pattern of the examination remains the same, the type of questions and their difficulty keep changing every year. Various types of questions have been tried till now. These include straight single answer ones, multiple answers, integer type questions, paragraph type and even matrix match types. The IIT conducting the JEE examination holds full authority on the matter of type and difficulty of questions. Though this is true, a general pattern that has been noted in the recent years is that JEE is tilting towards a little easier papers but which focus strongly on fundamentals. This objective pattern is carying on till date Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is an engineering entrance examination conducted for admission to various engineering colleges in INDIA. It is constituted by two different examinations – JEE Main and the JEE Advanced. The exams are of the objective pattern. JEE Advanced is regarded internationally as one of the most challenging undergraduate admission tests. JEE has two components, JEE-Main and JEE-Advanced. The former is for admissions in IITs, National Institutes of Technology, Central Funded Technical Institutes (CFTIs), and IIEST Shibpur, for its dual degree program. On the other hand, JEE-Advanced is for admission to IITs, and Indian School of Mines (ISM) Dhanbad.


Examination Date May 20, 2018.  The entire JEE (Advanced) 2018 Examination will be conducted in fully computer based test mode.More Candidates should be among the top 2,24,000 (including all categories) by scoring positive marks in Paper-1 of JEE (Main)-2018 Examination will be held on May 20, 2018. The entire JEE (Advanced) 2018 Examination will be conducted in fully computer based test mode. The exam consists of two papers, Paper 1 and Paper 2, each of three hours' duration, and will be held in two sessions. Both the papers are compulsory.

JEE-MAINS

JEE-Main exam is comprises of two papers, Paper-1 and Paper-2. Paper-1 is for the application in Bachelor in Engineering Bachelor in Technology which could be taken online and offline. Paper-2 is for admission in Bachelor in Architecture and Bachelor in Planning which can only be taken personally. Examinees can select either one or both of them. The papers include multiple choice questions. Almost 14,000, 000 students took JEE-Main exam  Qualified JEE-Mains passers can take JEE-Advanced examination. An approximate number of 2,24,000 students qualified to take the examination. Candidates who wanted to enter IIT’s and ISM, which are leading engineering and science colleges in India, must surpass the exam to secure their admission in the said schools. Only promising candidates of JEE-Main were qualified to take the exam. Passers of the exam can select either IITs or ISM. However, candidates who passed the JEE-Main but unqualified to take JEE- Advanced can still apply in other engineering colleges such as Indian Institute of Information Technology, and other government and/or privately- owned engineering colleges. Colleges like Indian Institute of Science and Research (IISER), Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology (RGIPT) and others uses the score of JEE- Advanced candidates for admission. These colleges are non-participant institutes of Central IIT JEE-Advanced advising of which all IITs and ISM are members. Students who have taken admission tests in IITs and ISM Dhanbad cannot take JEE-Advanced exam next year. But it would not be a case with IISER, RGIPT and other institutes because they only use the JEE-Advanced score for basis of admission and they are not associated with IIT central counselling. The Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced) 2018 will be conducted by the IITs. 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 all the IITs. The decisions of the JAB 2018 will be final in all matters related to JEE (Advanced) 2018 and admission to IITs.

Some Frequently Asked Questions.


If you dream of doing your B.Tech. / B.E. from a US University / College, SAT is almost always essential as a key admission criterion. While universities also demand your credentials at school level and letters of recommendation from your school teachers, there might be differences in assessment in various schools in different countries. SAT provides the universities a standardized score.

Most selective colleges recommend applicants to submit scores for any two SAT Subject tests. Engineering colleges typically require Chemistry or Physics and prefer Mathematics Level 2. A handful of the most competitive colleges, such as MIT, Harvard University and Princeton University, still require three Subject tests in addition to the three sections of the SAT. It is important to consult the college’s website to find out more information about Subject test requirements.

Remember, your scores are not the only information colleges use in their admission decisions. They may also consider your high school record, essays, recommendations, interviews, and extracurricular activities.

Apart from being a prerequisite for admission to US universities, the SAT is also important for the following reasons: a) Many scholarships require a minimum SAT score.
b) Many universities, especially state universities, will offer academic scholarships for students with a certain GPA and a minimum SAT score.
c) The SAT is a great way to set you apart from the college admissions crowd. Having a high SAT score will allow you to stand out from the thousands of other people applying to college.

Because the SAT is the most important test for college admissions to the US, it is always best to start preparing as early as possible. This allows more preparation time to achieve score goals.

Most good colleges require the students to send in their applications with SAT scores by November / December of their class XII year. This implies that a student should appear for the October or November SAT. Ideally a student should appear for the May / June SAT so that they have sufficient time to complete their college applications including essays, recommendations and transcripts from teachers, filling up of forms etc. This means a student should start the actual SAT preparation before the beginning of class XI as there are no distractions such as school homework, projects, exams or any other school activities. In fact, to develop a strong foundation a student should start clearing the basic fundamentals from class IX and X itself as most of the questions are based on the concepts taught in IX and X.
