# Who can take JEE exams?

February 3, 2022IIT JEE is a national-level exam for engineering aspirants. This is an exam that takes place in 2 levels – JEE Main and JEE Advanced. There are 23 branches of the IIT all over India. The JEE Main exam is to make a list of candidates who will be eligible to appear in the advanced level JEE exam. These exams are conducted not only for candidates for engineering but also for 4-year B.tech, B.Pharm, 5-year B.Arch, Integrated MSc, and M.Tech courses.

The IIT JEE main exams have 2 papers. The entire paper is of objective type and they are given 3 hours to test the comprehension and analytical ability. The paper revolves are three sections divided specifically for Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. One of the papers, Paper 1 is for engineering admissions the other is for B.Arch and B Planning courses. Candidates who have cleared the Paper 1 of the JEE Mains exam can be eligible for Undergraduate programs in other universities like NITs, CFTIs, and other prestigious institutions.

Usually, JEE exams take place only once a year but post COVID, these exams will be taking place in multiple sessions after February. There are 90 questions and 30 from each subject will be asked. At least 25 from each subject is to be attempted by the students. Every right answer will be given 4 marks and every wrong answer will cost a -1 mark.

Students who have secured at least 75 per cent in their 12th board will be eligible for this exam. The percentage is relaxed up to 65 per cent for people of SC and ST categories. However, there is no age bar for JEE.

However, you need to rank in the top 2,50,000 to clear JEE Mains. Only then will you be eligible for the Advanced Paper. Being in the top 20 per cent of their respective boards is also essential for you to be eligible for JEE advanced. Once you join any of the IITs through JEE you become ineligible to appear for JEE in the future.
