IIT-JEE Preparation :
IIT-JEE Mains, previously known as AIEEE (All India Engineering Entrance Examination) is an All India level exam conducted for admissions into IITs, NITs and other centrally funded institutions. The decision to club AIEEE and IIT-JEE ,that were conducted independently, to a single exam IIT-JEE (Mains and Advanced) was made by CBSE in 2012. Therefore, IIT-JEE mains is now also the qualifying exam for IIT-JEE Advanced conducted for admissions into various IIT-JEE and ISM Dhanbad (to be converted into IIT).
With approximately 13 lakh applicants in the year 2016,IIT- JEE Mains is the largest examination in the country. It consists of two papers-
- Paper I for admission into B.E/B.Tech
- Paper II for admissions into B.Arch/B.planning.
Of these, Paper I is available in both online (Computer based) and Offline (Pen & paper based) modes while Paper II can be taken only in offline mode (Pen & Paper based) . Candidates can choose to appear for either or both of these papers.
IIT-JEE Main Paper I consists of sections for Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics with 30 questions each, making a total of 90 questions. 4 marks are awarded for every correct answer whereas one-fourth marks is deducted for an incorrect response. Only one response is correct for each question and the paper consists of a total of 360 marks.
