### IIT-JEE Exam:

- Joint Entrance Exam or JEE is an All India Common Entrance Exam for admission to various engineering colleges across India.
- It is conducted in two phases, namely: JEE Main and JEE Advanced.
- Around 14 Lakh students appear every year and only 20,000 get a rank in this exam.
- In 2016, over 12 lakh candidates had registered for this exam.
- The IITs and ISM grant admission depending on the results of JEE Advanced.
- The NITs, IIITs, and other central or state-funded institutes grant admission based on JEE Main.
- Students are eligible to write JEE Advanced only if they clear the cutoff marks in JEE Main.

### Changes in JEE Main 2017:

- While calculating the JEE Main score, the weightage of 12th board marks will not be considered from 2017 onwards.
- There is no minimum criteria for 12th percentage for appearing JEE Main 2017 exam.
- For the applicants to qualify for admission in IITs, NITs, IIITs & such other CFTIs whose admission are based on JEE ranks, they must have scored minimum 75% marks (65% for reserved categories) in higher secondary standard or be in the top 20 percentile in higher secondary exam.
