GETTING STARTED WITH JEE MAIN
Joint Entrance Exam (Main) is conducted by CBSE, for admission in various Undergraduate Engineering Programs at NITs, IIITs, Other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions, Institutions funded by participating State Governments, and other Institutions. For engineering courses, candidates appear in Paper – I and for architecture courses, candidates appear in Paper – II. Also, JEE (Main) is an eligibility test for JEE (Advance), which is for admission in undergraduate programs offered by the IITs (Indian Institute of Technology) and ISM (Indian School of Mines) Dhanbad.
Candidates whose date of birth falls on or after October 01, 1992 are eligible for JEE (Main) 2017. However, upper age limit is relaxed by 5 years in the case of Scheduled Caste (SC), Scheduled Tribe (ST) and Persons with Disabilities (PwD) candidates, i.e. SC, ST and PwD candidates who are born on or after October 01, 1987 are eligible. Date of birth as recorded in the Secondary Education Board/University certificate will only be considered.
Only those candidates who have passed their Class 12th Exam or any equivalent qualifying examination in 2015 or 2016; or those who are appearing in their Class 12th Exam or any equivalent qualifying examination in 2017 are eligible to appear in JEE (Main) - 2017. Candidates who passed Class 12th/Qualifying examination in 2014 or before as well as those who will appear in such examination in 2018 or later are not eligible to appear in JEE (Main) – 2017. Candidates who appeared in class 12th/equivalent qualifying Examinations in 2014, did not pass in 2014, but passed in 2015 are also not eligible to appear in JEE (Main) 2017.
Candidates must have taken at least five subjects in class 12th/ qualifying examination in order to be eligible for writing JEE (Main) - 2017. The candidates who have taken four subjects are not permitted to write JEE (Main) 2017 and if such candidates appear in JEE (Main) 2016 by furnishing wrong information, their rank/result will not be declared.
The number of attempts for appearing in JEE Main is limited to 3.
Since the states of Madhya Pradesh, Nagaland and Odisha have joined JEE (Main) system from 2014. The age limit, for admission to institutions in these states which were earlier admitting candidates based on their state level examinations, will be as per their past practice only. The number of attempts in such cases will also remain same as per their past practice. This will however be obviously not applicable for admission to IITs/NITs/IIITs/CFTIs.
