1. Overview of JEE Advanced

Joint Entrance Examination – Advanced (JEE-Advanced), formerly the Indian Institutes of Technology-Joint Entrance Examination (IIT-JEE) is the toughest entrance examination in India for graduation in various disciplines in engineering. It is conducted by one of the seven zonal IITs across India (IIT Roorkee, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur, IIT Bombay, IIT Madras, and IIT Guwahati) under the guidance of the Joint Admission Board (JAB). It is used as the sole admission test by the 23 Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). Institutes other than IITs like Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISERs) and the premier Indian Institute of Science (IISc) also use the score obtained in JEE Advanced as the basis for admission. Any student who took admission to IITs cannot appear for the JEE-Advanced exam in the following year, but this is not the case with IISc, IISER, RGIPT and other institutes as these institutes only use JEE Advanced score for admission.
