JEE Mains Paper Pattern

The NTA (National Testing Agency) has been conducting the JEE exams since 2019. The JEE is one of the toughest exams in India. It is conducted in two phases: JEE mains and JEE advance. The JEE mains ensure your admission to the top engineering colleges in India including IITs, NIITs, or other centrally aided colleges. 

Moreover, the passing of the JEE Mains allows you to appear for the advanced level. The JEE Advanced is for admission to the B.Arch., B.Planning, and IITs. A good score in both papers helps the aspirants to get admission to top-class colleges. However, the JEE is also conducted twice a year to help the student appear for exams twice.
