What is JEE Main and JEE Advanced?
Joint Entrance Exam Main (JEE) is an All India Common Entrance Exam for admission to engineering colleges across India. It is conducted in two phases - JEE Main and JEE Advanced.
The IITs and ISM grant admission based on the results of JEE Advanced. The NITs, IIITs and other central or state funded institutes grant admission based on JEE Main. Students are eligible to write JEE Advanced only if they clear the cut off marks in JEE Main. Also, IIT JEE is considered as one of the toughest exams in the world. Over 14 Lakh students appear every year and only 20,000 get a rank.
