The Joint Entrance Examination, commonly known as JEE, is a nationwide engineering entrance exam held annually in India. It serves as a gateway for students to secure admission into various engineering colleges based on their rank in the exam.
JEE consists of two different tests: JEE Main and JEE Advanced. In the past, students had to take the AIEEE test for enrollment in India’s engineering colleges, but this has now been replaced by the JEE-Main exam. Similarly, the IIT-JEE has been replaced by the JEE-Advanced test.
Applicants who pass the JEE Main exam are eligible to take the JEE Advanced test.
Eligibility Criteria for JEE
To be eligible for this test, students must have obtained a minimum of 75% marks in their Class 12 board exams from CBSE, ISC, or other recognized boards. Alternatively, they must be among the top 20 percentile of students who appeared for the Class 12 exam conducted by their board.
For SC or ST applicants, the minimum requirement is to score at least 65% in their Class 12 board exams.
