What is the difference between JEE main and JEE advanced?



Here are some of the key differences between JEE main and JEE advanced :

  1. If you meet the eligibility for JEE main you can take it, however only the top 1.5 lakh students of JEE Main can appear for JEE advanced
  2. JEE Main is a multiple choice question paper where as JEE advanced has objective questions
  3. IITs and ISM Dhanbad pick up candidates on the basis of All India Rank (AIR) in JEE-Advanced. These candidates must feature in the top 20 percentile of Boards in respective categories.
  4. JEE main can be taken 3 times in a lifetime where as JEE advanced can only be taken twice in consecutive years.
  5. Several government funded institutions conduct JEE main where as JEE advanced is only conducted by the IITs
