The most important part of targeting your IIT JEE Entrance is to understand the scheme and syllabus of the Examination. Though it goes through a common Entrance process, targeting JEE is relatively straight forward and simple, but admission to IITs need specific strategies based on the scheme of examination and regular practice of specific type of questions based on syllabus.
Scheme of JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced):
JEE (Main): The Paper-1 (B.E./B. Tech.) of JEE (Main) will be conducted in two separate modes - Offline (Pen and Paper Based Examination) mode and Online (Computer Based Examination) mode. The Paper-2 (B. Arch./B. Planning.) of JEE (Main) will be conducted only in Pen and Paper based examination mode. A candidate will opt for either Pen and Paper Based or Computer Based examination modes for Paper-1 only. Paper 1 consists of Objective type Multiple Choice Questions with equal weightage to Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics. Paper 2 consists of Objective type questions from Mathematics (Part I) & Aptitude Test (Part II) and a Drawing Test (Part III) which tests Drawing aptitude.
JEE (Advanced): Only the top 2,20,000 candidates (including all categories) scoring positive marks in Paper-1 of JEE (Main) 2017 are eligible to write JEE (Advanced) consisting of two papers (Paper 1 and Paper 2) each of three hours duration. Questions are more complex and analytical involving concepts from more than one chapter, This requires a deeper understanding of the concepts from every chapter.
