About JEE Main

The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is an All-India Common Entrance Exam for facilitating admissions into engineering colleges across India. It is conducted in two phases: the first being JEE Main and the second being JEE Advanced. While institutions like the NITs, IIITs and other Central or State Funded Institutes grant admissions based on the results of JEE Main, IITs and ISM, Dhanbad, grant admissions based on the results of JEE Advanced. Additionally, students are eligible to take JEE Advanced only if they clear the cut-off marks prescribed for JEE Main.

JEE Main is considered to be one of the toughest exams in the world. Every year, over 1.4 million students appear for this exam while only 20000 get a rank to qualify for JEE Advanced.

Computer Based Exam for JEE Main 2017

You can appear for JEE Main 2017 in both online and offline exams. The Computer Based Exam (online exam) is conducted using Local Area Network (LAN), instead of the internet, to make JEE Main 2017 safe, secure and uninterrupted. Candidates can apply for the computer based exam through the JEE Main website. The Computer-Based Test will be quite similar to the offline ones, except for the fact that candidates will be given an unlimited amount of rough sheets for calculations and other rough work.

Candidates can submit the required details such as expected scores, category etc. to calculate their estimated ranks. A personal profile is generated, through which applicants can shortlist the names of colleges that will offer them admission on the basis of their respective ranking. Applicants should note, however, that these estimated ranks may not be 100% accurate.

Till 2016, the rank calculation was done using a normalized score in which 60% weightage was given to the JEE Main score and 40% weightage was given to the 12th percentile. From year 2017 however, the All India Rank in JEE Main 2017 is purely calculated on the basis of the candidate’s JEE Main 2017 result.
