About JEE Advanced

The Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) is an All-India Common Entrance Examination for admission to the top engineering colleges across India. It is conducted in two phases - JEE Main and JEE Advanced. Students are eligible to take JEE Advanced only if they clear the cut-off for JEE Main. The IITs and ISM then grant admission to these candidates on the basis of the JEE Advanced results.

JEE Advanced is widely considered to be one of the toughest exams in the world. Over 14 lakh students take it every year with only 20,000 getting a rank.

JEE Advanced 2017 was conducted by the seven zonal Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) under the guidance of Joint Admission Board (JAB). The performance of a candidate in this examination will form the basis for admission to various bachelor’s degree programmes in 23 IITs which include Indian School of Mines (ISM), Dhanbad along with other reputed engineering institutes.


Eligibility for JEE Advanced 2017 entails several criteria, all of which need to be satisfied by candidates. Read on to see if you do!

Performance in JEE Main 2017

The candidate should be among the top 2,20,000 (all categories included) in JEE Main 2017. From this pool, 50.5% candidates are selected from the General category (from common rank list), 27% from OBC - NCL, 15% from SC and 7.5% from ST. Within each of these four categories, 3% horizontal reservation is available for the PwD category, which includes candidates with locomotor and visual impairments as well as those with severe dyslexia.

Age Limit

  • Students should have been born on or after 1st October, 1992, (for candidates in the General category) and 1st October, 1987, (for those in SC, ST and PwD categories).

Appearance in Class XII (Or Equivalent) Examination

  • The candidate should have appeared for Class XII (or equivalent) examination for the first time - in all the subjects - in either 2016 or 2017. Candidates who appeared for their Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2016 and wish to re-appear for the same in 2017 (either for improvement or because they failed in one or more subjects) will have to re-appear in all the subjects in 2017. Those who appeared for their Class XII (or equivalent examination) for the first time in 2015 or earlier, are not eligible.
  • Candidates whose Class XII (or equivalent) examination results for the academic year 2014-15 were declared after June 2015 are eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2017.

Number of Attempts

A candidate can attempt JEE Advanced a maximum of two times in consecutive years. Therefore, JEE Advanced 2017 should either be the candidate’s first or second consecutive attempt.

Earlier Admission at IITs or ISM

The candidate should not have taken admission (irrespective of whether or not he or she continued in the program) or even accepted admission by paying the fees at any of the IITs or ISM in the past. Candidates whose admission was cancelled are also ineligible. However, candidates who have been admitted to a preparatory course in any of the IITs in 2016 can appear for JEE Advanced 2017.


Candidates should first register themselves for appearing in JEE Advanced 2017, which can only be done online.

Exam Pattern

Candidates can check previous years’ papers for salient features of the JEE Advanced 2017 exam pattern, along with details of previous year’s question papers in order to get a fair idea about the actual exam. This is to be done as the paper pattern is different every year with a different marking scheme, and hence students should read the instructions carefully.

  • The question papers will consist of objective type (multiple choice) and numerical answer type questions designed to test comprehension, reasoning and analytical ability of candidates.
  • Incorrect answers to some of the questions will result in a deduction of marks.
  • The question paper will be in either English or Hindi. Candidates must exercise their choice of question paper language while registering for JEE Advanced 2017. Change of question paper language will not be entertained after registrations.


  • Focus: Focus more on understanding topics rather than just formulae. This way, you can ensure that you imbibe the method used to arrive at the formulae. Doing so will also ensure that those formulae are always at your fingertips.
  • Organise your time: Watch the time taken to solve questions. Subject-wise allocation of time will help you attempt the JEE Advanced paper within the given time constraint. This will also help in exam-simulation. While in the exam, you should be able to filter out the easy questions from the difficult ones, so you know the amount of time you need to allot to them.
  • Keep taking breaks: Burnout should be avoided at all costs. Keep taking periodic breaks to refresh yourself. Talk to friends once in a while, and don’t bury your social life entirely.
  • Fulfil targets on a daily basis: Your daily study plan must include learning and revision. So assign daily goals for you and fulfil them. This will boost your confidence and avoid time wastage.
  • Practice solving sample papers: Once you are thorough with a concept or chapter, solve previous years’ papers (for the last 8-10 years at least). This will guide you through the transitions in question patterns and will prepare you to anticipate them. Sample papers from other sources, such as All India Test Series, will also help you in formulating strategies and eliminating weaknesses.
  • Subject-wise planning: Based on your preference, select subject-wise topics and cover them each day. Remember, your weakness may be someone else’s strength so never ignore a less favourite topic. Refer the latest JEE Advanced syllabus for your study plan.
  • Clarity in concepts: Develop a clear thinking process so that the moment you see a question, you know the correct theory or formula to be used.
  • From basics to classics: Always start from the fundamentals and then gradually move up further. In this way, you can tackle even a difficult problem as you are well-versed with the concept. Jumping straightaway to an advanced problem is not a good idea.
  • Numericals are crucial: Solving enough numericals is crucial to crack JEE Advanced. Practise at least 40-50 numericals for each day of your JEE Advanced preparations. With subjects like Maths, Physics and Chemistry, there is no dearth of numerical problems. Toppr brings you a huge question bank, with quality questions to test yourself and solutions to keep learning simultaneously.
  • Save your best for last: Study more crucial sections of the syllabus in the beginning and push easier ones for later. Mark difficult portions in your notes so that revision towards the end becomes easier.
  • Discuss with your peers: Discussing and clearing doubts with fellow aspirants and mentors can help you overcome your weaknesses. Interact with them without any hesitation to devise an efficient study plan for yourself.
