JEE Advanced Exam Pattern

Number of Papers: 2 (Paper-I and Paper-II)
Exam Mode: Computer-Based (Online)
Duration: 3 Hours each for Paper-I and Paper-II (4 hours for PwD candidates)
Shifts: 9 AM – 12 PM, 2:30 PM – 5:30 PM
Number Of Sections: 3 (Physics, Chemistry, Maths)
Number of Questions: Varies
Question Types: Multiple Choice Questions (with one or more correct options), Numerical based Questions, Matching List Questions
Question Paper Languages: English and Hindi

The exam is a computer-based online test and is conducted in two sessions. There are two papers Paper 1 and Paper 2 which contains three sections each. All sections have an equal distribution of questions from Physics, Chemistry, and Maths subjects. However, the examination pattern of JEE Advanced is different from JEE Mains exam where apart from single correct multiple-choice questions other different types of questions such as numerical based questions are asked.

On the other hand, the questions asked in IIT JEE exams are mostly based on the concepts discussed in class 11 and 12 Maths, Physics and Chemistry syllabus. Nonetheless, the exam pattern of JEE Advanced 2021 is an upgraded version where questions are generally a combination of different concepts and it might sometimes appear intimidating and complicated to students.

Types of Questions Asked in JEE Advanced

  • Section 1 comprises of multiple correct option type questions
  • Section 2 comprises of Numerical Value type questions
  • Section 3 comprises of Single Correct multiple-choice questions (Paper 1) and Matching list type questions (Paper 2)

The exam duration for each paper is 3 hours, the total marks allocated is 360 marks and it is conducted in English and Hindi. Also, it is mandatory for students to attempt both papers. Knowing the examination pattern is crucial for candidates as it reveals the structure of the question paper like the types of questions asked and its marking scheme. However, the most prominent feature of JEE Advanced is its unpredictable paper pattern. Practising more and more problems on concepts where students face difficulty is one of the best ways to tackle JEE Advanced.

JEE Advanced Paper 1

  • Section 1 – 6 multiple correct option type questions carrying 4 marks each
  • Section 2 – 8 Numerical Value type questions carrying 3 marks each
  • Section 3 – 4 Single Correct multiple choice questions carrying 3 marks each

JEE Advanced Paper 2

  • Section 1 – 6 multiple correct option type questions carrying 4 marks each

Calculation of JEE Advanced 2021 Score

As stated earlier it is mandatory for candidates to write both Paper 1 and Paper 2. The marks obtained by candidates in Chemistry, Maths and Physics in both Paper 1 and 2 will be added individually. Candidates have to note that the marks obtained in each subject will be added and the total marks will be determined. For example,

Marks obtained in Physics = Marks obtained in Paper 1 (Physics) + Marks obtained in Paper 2 (Physics)

Aggregate marks/scores of the candidates are then calculated by the exam authorities on the basis of marks secured by candidates in each subject. They will use a formula for the calculation of aggregate marks for JEE Advanced 2021. It is as follows:

Aggregate Marks/Scores obtained in JEE Advanced = Aggregate marks in (Physics + Mathematics + Chemistry)

The aggregate marks that is obtained by the students will be used for the preparation of the final rank list. Students are required to obtain the minimum prescribed marks in each subject and in aggregate for their names to be included in the rank list.

Tie Breaking Policy

Whenever, there is a tie between two or more candidates then the exam authority will use a tie breaker policy for determing the new ranks. The conditions are as follows;

  1. Candidates who have higher positive ranks are awarded a higher rank.
  2. Candidates that have higer marks in Mathematics will be given a higher rank.
  3. If the ties still persists then the candidate with higher marks in Physics will be given a higher rank.

JEE Advanced Counselling

Candidates have to note that IIT Kharagpur is not the authority that will conduct the counselling and allotment of seats for JEE Advanced. Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) is in charge of conducting the rest of the activities. Candidates who qualify JEE Advanced will have to first register with JoSAA. Then only they will be able to participate in the counselling process where candidates have to choose their preferred IITs and courses. Seat allotment is done considering the ranks that candidates secure and their preference along with the availability of seats. The application form of JoSAA 2021 should be released after the results are declared.

JEE Advanced Cutoff Marks

The cutoff marks for the entrance exam will be released along with the declaration of results. JEE Advanced cut off marks are the minimum marks required by the candidates for being eligible in the counselling process conducted by Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA). The students are shortlisted for admissions at IITs based on the cutoff marks and ranks secured in the examination.

What factors determine the cutoff marks for JEE Advanced?

  • Total candidates eligible for JEE Advanced
  • Seat Availability in different IITs
  • The difficulty level of Exam
  • Total candidates appeared
  • Last year’s cutoff trends
  • The overall performance of appearing candidates

How To Prepare Effectively For JEE Advanced?

JEE Advanced preparation demands a well-structured strategy along with possessing analytical, time management, and exam-taking skills. Therefore, students aspiring to strengthen their engineering career with eminent professors and Nobel laureates from India’s best engineering colleges are advised to plan their preparations carefully and put in the effort to study competently from the very beginning itself.

In any case, the preparation is quite challenging and it is mainly due to the uncertain paper pattern and the level of competition. To crack JEE Advanced, students should, therefore, learn and master all the concepts included in the syllabus. A doubt can weaken your foundational base, hence, get all your doubts cleared on a regular basis. Also, all your preparations are incomplete without proper revisions. Lack of revision is the biggest mistake committed by the IIT aspirants. Given below are few tips recommended by our experts to boost your JEE Advanced preparations in a significant manner.

Preparation tips for Physics: Physics is purely a conceptual subject. Hence, you need to get your basics strong to score well in this section. For better results, start your preparations from NCERT textbooks followed by reference from other core books. Mostly the questions are framed by the combination of two or more concepts. Therefore, memorize all the important physics formulas for JEE covered in the syllabus and have a strong conceptual base to answer the complex physics problems asked in the exam quite easily.

Preparation tips for Maths: This section asses the problem-solving and analytical skills of students. To excel in this subject the students are required to have a regular and rigorous practice of problems. It’s merely impossible to excel in maths by just screening and memorising. Focus more on chapters like vectors, 3D geometry, derivatives, trigonometry, quadratic equations, sequence-series, logarithms, etc. Try to interlink different concepts and create your own shortcut methods to have a better understanding of concepts.

Preparation tips for Chemistry: NCERT textbooks are one of the best books for chemistry preparation. All the chapters covered in the syllabus are explained in the simplest possible ways. Chemistry is more about theoretical concepts, chemical reactions, and equations. Therefore, instead of memorizing the concepts, focus more on understanding the mechanism behind them. Have a strong grip on the periodic table, name reactions, mechanisms, synthesis and chemical compositions as well.
