Jee Main

Joint Entrance Examination (Main)

The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE Main) comprises of two papers. The Paper1 is conducted for admission to Undergraduate Engineering Programs (B.E/B. Tech) at NITs, IIITs, other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs), Institutions/Universities funded/recognized by participating State Governments, as well as an eligibility test for JEE (Advanced), which is conducted for admission to IITs. Candidates of UPSEE (2021) will take JEE (Main) 2021. The Paper 2 is conducted for admission to B. Arch and B. Planning courses in the Country. From this year, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU), Lucknow will also use the score sheet of JEE (Main) – 2021 for admission to the B.Tech / M.Tech (Integrated)/B.Arch. Courses in its affiliated colleges across the State.

The JEE (Main) 2021 will be conducted in multiple sessions for admissions in the next academic session. The candidates will thus benefit in the following ways:
▪ This will give multiple opportunities to the candidates to improve their scores in the examination if they are not able to give their best in one attempt.
▪ In first attempt, the students will get a first-hand experience of taking an examination and will know their mistakes which they can improve while attempting for the next time.
▪ This will reduce the chances of dropping a year and droppers would not have to waste a full year.
▪ If anyone missed the examination due to reasons beyond control (such as Board examination), then he/she will not have to wait for one full year.
▪ A candidate need not appear in all the four Sessions. However, if candidate appears in more than one Session then his/her best of the 2021 NTA Scores will be considered for preparation of Merit List/ Ranking.

1. The Paper 1 of JEE (Main) 2021 will be held in February 2021 followed by next three Sessions in March, April, and May 2021. This is being done to ensure that the JEE (Main) 2021 does not interfere with the Board examinations, which may be held at different times across the States/UTs. Paper 2A & Paper 2B (B. Arch & B. Planning) will be held only twice a year (February & May 2021)
2. The NTA has decided to provide choices in one section to cater to the decision of different Boards across the country regarding the reduction of syllabus. However, the total number of questions to be attempted will remain the same (Physics – 25,

Chemistry – 25 and Mathematics – 25), wherever applicable.

Mode of Examination
JEE (Main)-2021 will be conducted in the following modes:
a) Paper 1 (B.E. /B. Tech.) in “Computer Based Test (CBT)” mode only.

No correspondence in this regard shall be entertained.
4 Only the All India Rank (AIR) is used for admissions through Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB)/Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) to NITs/ IIITs/ CFTIs/ SFIs/ Others.
5 All participating Institutions that do not use the Centralized Seat Allocation Process will prepare their own ranking based on the performance in JEE (Main) 2021 and other criteria as decided by them.
6 The National Testing Agency (NTA) is an examination conducting body and not an admission giving authority. Therefore, NTA does not collect the information regarding the total number of seats available in the institutions, or the eligibility and reservation criteria followed by the institutions.
21 “No candidate shall be admitted to Architecture course unless she/he has passed an examination at the end of the qualifying examination with 50% marks in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics and also 50% marks in aggregate of the qualifying examination”.
For B. Planning, the candidates should have passed the qualifying examination with 50 % marks in Mathematics and 50% marks in aggregate of the qualifying examination. Subject combinations required in the qualifying examination for admission to B.E./B.Tech, B. Arch, and B. Planning Courses in NITs, IIITs, and other CFTIs shall be as under.
Course Required Criteria based on Class 12th / Equivalent qualifying Examination

Passed qualifying examination with Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry B.Planning Passed qualifying examination with Mathematics The Admission Policy, as announced by the Competent Authority of the admitting institutes shall be followed at the time of admission. The Candidates are advised to satisfy themselves about their Eligibility for Admission from the respective websites of admitting authorities.

Computer Based Test (CBT)

The major examinations being conducted by NTA are Computer Based Test (CBT). A CBT requires candidates to sit in front of a computer terminal (node) allocated to them against their Roll number and Admit card. After logging the candidate will get detailed instructions for the examinations. At the designated time of start of examination, the candidates will be able to proceed and see the questions on the computer screen using the computer mouse. Candidates will have the option to change / modify/ edit / answers already entered any time during the examination.
Procedure for appearing in Computer Based Test (CBT):
(Sample/mock test will be available on NTA website: www.nta.ac.in for hands on practice)
(a) A computer terminal (node) indicating Roll Number will be allocated to each candidate. Candidates should find and sit on their allocated computers only. Any candidate found to have changed room/hall or the computer on their own other than the one allotted would lead to cancellation of candidature and no plea in this regard would be entertained.
(b) For login, the candidate will have to enter login-ID and password. The computer terminal allotted to the candidate will display WELCOME login screen, Candidate’s photograph and NET subject opted by the candidate.

Procedure to be adopted for compilation of NTA scores for multi session Papers (Normalization procedure based on PERCENTILE SCORE)
NTA may conduct examinations on multiple dates, generally in two sessions per day. The candidates will be given different sets of questions per session and it is quite possible that in spite of all efforts of maintaining equivalence among various question papers, the difficulty level of these question papers administered in different sessions may not be exactly the same. Some of the candidates may end up attempting a relatively tougher set of questions when compared to other sets. The candidates who attempt the comparatively tougher examination are likely to get lower marks as compared to those who attempt the easier one. In order to overcome such a situation, “Normalization procedure based on Percentile Score” will be used for ensuring that candidates are neither benefitted nor disadvantaged due to the difficulty level of the examination. With the objective of ensuring that a candidate’s true merit is identified, and that a level playing field is created in the above context, the Normalization Procedure, set out below shall be adopted, for compiling the NTA scores for multi session papers.
The process of Normalization is an established practice for comparing candidate scores across multi session papers and is similar to those being adopted in other large educational selection tests conducted in India. For normalization across sections, NTA shall use the percentile equivalence.
Percentile Scores:
Percentile scores are scores based on the relative performance of all those who appear for the examination. Basically the marks obtained are transformed into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each session of examinees.
The Percentile Score indicates the percentage of candidates that have scored EQUAL TO OR BELOW (same or lower raw scores) that particular Percentile in that examination. Therefore the topper (highest score) of each session will get the same Percentile of 100 which is desirable. The marks obtained in between the highest and lowest scores are also converted to appropriate Percentiles.
The Percentile score will be the Normalized Score for the examination
(instead of the raw marks of the candidate) and shall be used for preparation of the merit lists.
The Percentile Scores will be calculated up to 7 decimal places to avoid bunching effect and reduce ties.
The Percentile score of a Candidate is calculated as follows:
100 X Number of candidates appeared in the „Session‟ with raw score EQUAL TO OR LESS than the candidate Total number of the candidates appeared in the ‟Session‟
Note:
The Percentile of the Total shall NOT be an aggregate or average of the Percentile of individual subject. Percentile score is not the same as percentage of marks obtained.
