All About JEE Mains
Many of the students who are thinking of taking science as a career stream, or have taken Physics, chemistry, and maths as their core subjects, will sooner or later think about appearing for JEE exams. Here are a few things you should consider before appearing for the JEE examination.
First of all, ask yourselves, do you want to be an engineer? And why do you want to be an engineer?
And thank you and evaluate your answer, and if you are even slightly unsure about the answer, you should rethink your career stream. You have to secure a good rank in the JEE exam to get admission into a decent engineering college and let me tell you, JEE is not at all child's play. JEE is one of the toughest exams in India, requiring a lot of dedication and hard work to crack. Many students even drop a year to prepare for this exam.
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)
On top of the list are the IITs, they are the best colleges across the country for engineering. If you are preparing for JEE exams, your priority should be aiming for an IIT. There are 23 IITs all over India. Getting a stamp of IIT in your engineering degree can secure quite a promising placement for you.
National Institute of Technology (NIT)
The second in the line are NITs. Earlier until 2002, every state had their independent engineering colleges called Regional Engineering College (RECs). And to get admission in those, the students had to pass the state entrance examination.Later they were nationalized by the Indian government and brought the admission criteria under one single examination conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education.
Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIITs)
There are 25 IIITs across the country, funded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development. They are mainly focused on software engineering programs.
Other Centrally Funded Institutes (CFTIs)
After the IITs, NITs and IITs, there are other centrally funded institutes as well which include IISC and IISER. There are 19 other CFTIs across the country.
Private Engineering Colleges
There are 1000+ private engineering colleges across the country, some of the reputed names include the Delhi Technical University, Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology, Birla Institute of Technology and Science, etc
Undergraduate Courses After JEE
- B.Tech(Bachelor of Technology) -duration 4 years
- B.E.(Bachelor of Engineering)duration 4 years
- Dual Degree(B.Tech + M.Tech)duration 5 years
- B.S(Bachelor of Science)duration 4 years
Some of the famous streams take by the Students after JEE
- Aerospace Engineering
- Computer Science Engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Electronics and Communication Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Metallurgical Engineering
Apart from these, there are other streams as well, which are offered by colleges depending on their location, and the type of college.
Joint Entrance Examinations(JEE)
Earlier there were a lot of different entrance examinations, depending on the colleges. Every private college, IITs, NITs, BITs used to conduct their Entrance Exams. But later in 2012, the Indian Government had decided to bring all the different exams under the bracket of one single Entrance Examination which would be conducted Nationally.
JEE comprises of two stages, stage 1 and stage 2
JEE Main(stage 1)
Everybody has to appear for this first stage of JEE. Moreover, JEE also comprises of two papers, which include paper 1 and paper 2
PAPER 1: Paper 1 is the paper for getting into the engineering courses.
PAPER 2: Paper 2 is for those who want to go for architectural courses.
Syllabus Physics, Chemistry, and Maths(11th+ 12th standard). The Base of examination is the NCERT books followed in the C.B.S.E curriculum.

A step-by-step guide to JEE preparation
- Make sure you have the right motivation and believe in your ability to succeed.
JEE is all about mastering the concepts, the better chance you have on your concepts the better you will perform in the examination.
View the previous question papers, and try to understand the type and pattern of questions.
Give equal weightage to every subject, and allot equal time spans for studying each of the subjects every day.
First start mastering every NCERT book, then only start digging into the various concepts.
Note down as many concepts you can think of from each chapter.
After you are 3-4 months into the preparation, start trying sample question papers and practice sets.
Give your mind proper rest, take a 5-10 minutes break after studying for 1 hour. Studying continuously for long hours will only decrease the quality of the study.
Make a proper routine of study for every day.
And if you're an IIT aspirant, study at least 5-6 hours a day.
