JEE- MAIN & Advenced collectively constitute one of the toughest entrances to crack in the engineering education domain

Admissions to engineering colleges, especially centrally administered ones have undergone a drastic change. There would be JEE-Main, which will be used to admit students to NITs and other select central institutions and there would be JEE-Advanced, which will admit students to IITs.

AIEEE is now JEE-Mains
The erstwhile AIEEE exam will now be called as JEE-Main exam. This test will be conducted by CBSE. However, exam paper would be set by IITs. The paper would consist of objective type questions with equal weightage to Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. There will be negative marking of one-fourth of total marks allotted to the question.

The minimum academic qualification for appearing in JEE-Mains 2013 is that the candidate must have passed final examination of class XII or its equivalent referred to as the qualifying examination*.

iit-jeee
 Those appearing in class XII final or equivalent examination in 2013 may also appear in JEE-Mains 2013 examination provisionally. Candidates who have passed Class XII in 2010 or before, or appearing in 2014 are not eligible to appear in JEE-Main examination. A candidate can avail of a maximum of three attempts in consecutive years for the JEE-Main.

Calculating JEE Main final Rank:

  1. First score would be calculated on the basis of a candidate’s performance in JEE-Main. It would be as per 60% weightage given for actual marks obtained in the JEE Main Exam.

  2. Second Score would be calculated  on the basis of  class XII marks component. 40% weightage would be given for school board marks in Class XII or equivalent exam. The school board marks or equivalent marks shall be normalised as per appropriate formula to calculate the percentile score of a candidate.

Thereafter both scores will be added to calculate the categorywise combined All India Rank for JEE Mains, which would be used for the admission to NIITs and IIITs and CFTIs. JEE-Main shall act as gateway for JEE-Advanced exam.

as JEE Advanced Exam.

AIEEE Exam question paper was set by CBSE 

Format of JEE advanced will be same like IIT JEE 2012.

No weightage was given to board marks

Board marks will play a vital role.

Separate Counselling for NITs and IITs

Plan to have single counselling for NIT’S and IIT’s

Eligibility criteria for AIEEE/IIT – student must have 60% marks in class XII or equivalent qualifying exam to be eligible.

Eligibility criteria For JEE Main -

IIT-JEE is JEE-Advanced
The erstwhile IITJEE exam will now be called as JEE-Advanced exam, after the declaration of the scores of JEE Main – 2013, the top 150,000 candidates (including all categories as per reservation policy) based on performance in JEE-Main, will qualify to appear in JEE-Advanced exam. JEE Advanced 2013 would be conducted by JEE Admission Board of IITs on June 2, 2013.

  • To appear in JEE-Advanced, one has to appear in JEE-Main first and only the top 150,000 candidates from JEE-Main will qualify to appear in the JEE-awdvanced examination.

  • Admissions to IITs will be based only on category-wise All India Rank (AIR) obtained in JEE-Advanced, provided that such candidates are in the top 20 percentile (category-wise) in their respective Boards/Qualifying Examinations.

  • You have to understand that you will not be eligible for admission to IITs  even if you clear JEE-Advanced cutoff  if you do not belong to top 20 percentile clusters of respective boards. So class XII marks component will play a vital role in deciding the fate of a candidate.


How is the percentile calculated?
There are 42 different boards in our country. How would the institutes calculate the percentiles?

A percentile score is based on your rank among the people who have taken the exam.

If 1000 people write a exam and your rank is 5, then Percentile = {(1000-5)/1000}*100 = 99.5

So percentile just depends on rank, irrespective of percentage of marks. Thus percentile will denote rank with topmost being almost 100 and lowermost being 0. As the Number of students in different boards is much more then 1000, so the rank should be given up to 9 decimal places to enable tie breaking.

Percentage vs Percentile
When we talk about board marks we are talking about percentile, not the percentage of marks. Hence how much marks you get in the Board are not important. Your rank in the board is important. This means that the topper of two boards although one may get 99% and the other 85%, will score the same marks on percentile for admission. Hence it seems like they are not comparing between the boards but trying to see how good you are in your board. This only assumes that all boards have equally intelligent students which is a fair given the large number of students.   

Frequently asked questions on JEE

Q. What will be admission criteria for state Engineering Colleges?

A. If any state opts to admit students in the engineering colleges affiliated to state universities and requires separate merit list to be provided based on relative weightages adopted by the states, the merit list shall be prepared with such relative weightages as may be indicated by the states. As of now Gujarat state has opted for the same.

Q. What is the minimum academic qualification for appearing in JEE-Main 2013 exam?

A. Candidate must have passed the final examination of class XII or its equivalent referred to as qualifying examination. Candidates appearing for the same in 2013 may also appear for the exam provisionally.

Q. When will the forms be available?

A. Forms can be filled online only and will be available from November 1, 2012.CBSE will release list of facilitation centres at the time of release of the form to help students with their enquiries.

Q. Which all modes JEE-Main examination and JEE-Advanced will be conducted?

A. JEE-Main Examination would be conducted in mix mode (online Computer-based test) and offline (Pen and Paper-based Examination). JEE- Advanced will be conducted in offline (pen and paper-based Examination) mode only.

Q. How many attempts can one make in JEE-Main?

A. A candidate can make three attempts in consecutive years. The candidates who passed 12th exam in 2011 or 2012 or appearing in 12th exam in 2013 are eligible to appear in JEE (Main) 2013. Candidates who passed 12th exam in 2010 or before or appearing in 2014 are not eligible to appear in JEE-Main 2013.

Q. How they are going to process XII Exam marks in JEE-Main?

A. The JEE Main Result will specify the percentile rank of a student in the respective Board. The percentile rank of a student  in the Board , would be based on following formula - (cl + 0.5fi)/N*100 where

cl :- It is the count of all scores less than the score of candidate, 

fi :- the number of students with the same score

N :- Number of examinees in sample.

*As Mentioned in Minutes of Joint Meeting of Council of IITs, NITs and IIITs held on 28th May, 2012

Q. Now that they are going to take Board marks into account are they going to take the marks of all five subjects in Board or only Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry?

A. The  percentile rank of students are  to be based on the scores obtained from adding the marks obtained in the Board examination in the following subjects: Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and one language.

Q. Will there be negative marking in JEE-Main examination 2013?

A. YES. There will be negative marking in JEE-Main. There will be objective type questions with four options having single correct answer. For each incorrect response, one fourth (1/4) of the total marks allotted to the question would be deducted. But no deduction from total score will, however, be made if no response is indicated for an item in the answer sheet.

Q. I want to improve my Class XII results. Can I do in two subjects?

A. You cannot improve in one/two subjects and add them to previous years’ performance. You have to appear in all the subjects as applicable under the scheme of your Board.

Q. What is the age limit to apply for JEE-Main exam?

A. Only those candidates whose date of birth falls on or after October 01, 1988 are eligible. However in case of SC,ST,PWD upper age limit is relaxed by five years. (i.e. October 01, 1983).

Q. What will be the eligibility criteria for candidates who have qualified their 10+2 examination in 2012 for JEE-Advanced 2013?

A. In respect of those students who passed their Board exam for the first time in 2012, the eligibility criteria for joining any of the IITs or ISM Dhanbad will be 60% marks in their 12th Board or equivalent (55% for SC/ST/PWD candidates).

For those candidates who will appear in their Board exams for the first time in 2013, the eligibility criteria will remain ‘top 20 percentile of the successful candidates’ in their Boards, category-wise. This will be a one time exception for JEE-Advanced 2013 only.

For those students who passed their 12th Board exams in 2012 but are re-appearing in the 2013 Board exams with a view to improve their performance, 60% rule will apply if they use their 2012 Board exam results and ‘top 20 percentile’ rule will apply if they use their 2013 Board exam results. This too will be a one-time exception for JEE-Advanced 2013 only.
