The Joint Entrance Examination, JEE (Main) comprises two papers. Paper 1 is conducted for admission to Undergraduate Engineering Programs (B.E/B.Tech.) at NITs, IIITs, other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs), and Institutions/Universities funded/recognized by participating State Governments. JEE (Main) is also an eligibility test for JEE (Advanced), which is conducted for admission to IITs. Paper 2 is conducted for admission to B. Arch and B. Planning courses in the country. The JEE (Main) - 2024 is being conducted in 02 (two) sessions for admissions in the next academic session.


The candidates will thus benefit in the following ways:


  • This will give the candidates two opportunities to improve their scores in the examination if they are not able to give their best in the first attempt.
  • In the first attempt, the students will get a first-hand experience of taking an examination and will know their mistakes which they can improve while attempting for the second time.
  • This will reduce the chances of dropping a year and droppers would not have to waste an entire year.
  • If anyone misses the examination due to reasons beyond control (such as the Board examination), then he/she will not have to wait for one entire year.
  • A candidate need not appear in both Sessions. However, if a candidate appears in more than one Session then his/her best of the JEE (Main) - 2024 NTA Scores will be considered for preparation of the Merit List/ Ranking.
