History of JEE and current situation

From 2017 onwards, the examination has been opened to the international audience as well, allowing students from across the globe to participate and make use of the opportunity. Since 2006 onwards 8 new IITs have been operational making the total number of IITs to 23, the challenge is open to all. Known for their difficulty level, JEE is divided into two parts: JEE Main (formerly known as AIEEE) and JEE Advanced (formerly known as IIT-JEE). While a number of colleges across India accept the JEE Mains score, JEE Advanced score is accepted by IITs, RGIPT (Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology), IISER (Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research) and IISc (Indian Institute of Science). One of the main eligibility criteria of JEE Advanced is the performance in JEE Mains. In other words, only the aspirants who have qualified JEE Mains can appear for JEE Advanced.

Aadhar card is mandatory to enroll in this examination.
