The students are granted admissions into IITs and ISM Dhanbad on the basis of scores obtained in JEE Advanced. Candidates could appear for JEE Advanced twice but only in consecutive years.

The overall pattern of JEE Advanced remains more or less the same every year but with minor changes. There are 2 papers in JEE Advanced (Paper 1 & Paper 2) and candidates have to appear for both the papers. The question paper consists of three parts: Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics.

Candidates are supposed to attempt both MCQs and numerical answer type questions. The JEE Advanced is designed to judge not just theoretical knowledge but also reasoning ability, comprehension skills and analytical power of the students.

For better preparation of examination, one should have a better understanding of the question paper. Knowing the JEE Advanced paper pattern allows the candidate to get a detailed instruction about number & type of questions, exam duration, and section wise marking scheme.

JEE Advanced comprises of two papers: Paper 1 and Paper 2. It is mandatory for all the candidates to take both the papers. Each paper comprises of three sections: Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry. Every year, we observe a slight change in the question paper pattern. In this article, we are going to discuss the JEE Advanced paper pattern 2019.

Knowing about the paper pattern could help you in improving your preparation level. It acquaints you with the number and types of questions.  It also gives a clear introspection about the negative marking system that helps you to reduce your errors. So, before even starting your IIT JEE preparations, it is advisable to have a look at the JEE Advanced paper pattern. It will help you to eliminate the basic errors which you could make during the examination due to the lack of information regarding the marking scheme.
