The JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) is an entrance exam for admission into various engineering colleges across the country. From 2019, it will be conducted twice a year, in January and April, by NTA (National Testing Agency). One of the most-challenging entrance exams in the country, the JEE is your gateway to the prestigious IITs, NITs, and Central Funded Technical Institutes (CFTIs). Only those students who qualify the JEE Main 2020 examination are eligible for the JEE Advanced examination which is the only entrance examination for the Bachelor's programs offered by the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology.

Institutes like the Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research (IISERs), Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology, and the Indian Institute of Science consider the marks obtained in JEE Advanced as one of the criteria for admission. However, these institutes are not a part of central IIT-JEE Advanced counseling.

JEE Advanced 2020: Exam Pattern

Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is an engineering entrance examination conducted for admission to various engineering colleges in India. It is constituted by two different examinations - JEE Main and the JEE Advanced. The JEE Main exam is totally objective examination and JEE Advanced consists of numerical and objective type questions. JEE Advanced is regarded as one of the most challenging undergraduate admission tests.

Every year around 15 lakh candidates appear for JEE Main, out of which around 2 lakh candidates are shortlisted to appear for JEE Advanced. And approximately 11,000 students make it to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), Indian Institute of Science (IISc), and a few other colleges. IIT Roorkee was the organizing institute for JEE Advanced 2019 exam and the exam was conducted on 27th May 2019. The computer based exam was conducted in two phases i.e. Paper - 1 (9 am to 12 pm) and Paper - 2 (2 pm to 5 pm) and the results of JEE Advanced will be announced on 14th June 2019. There is no such fixed pattern of the JEE Advanced exam as the organizing IIT is different each time and the students only come to know about the pattern and the marking scheme during the exam. Based on previous year analysis the JEE Advanced exam pattern and marking scheme of previous three years is discussed below so that the students may get a little bit of idea for the upcoming exam pattern the next year.

JEE Advanced 2020: Score Calculation Policy

The mechanism followed by authorities while calculating the scores of JEE Advanced 2019 is given below:

  • To be considered for rank allocation, candidates had to appear in both the papers of JEE Advanced - Paper 1 & 2 as scores obtained in them will be taken into account.
  • Marks obtained in Physics = Physics marks obtained in Paper 1 + Physics marks obtained in Paper 2.
  • Marks obtained in Mathematics = Mathematics marks obtained in Paper 1 + Mathematics marks obtained in Paper 2.
  • Marks obtained in Chemistry = Chemistry marks obtained in Paper 1 + Chemistry marks obtained in Paper 2.
  • The total marks calculated is the total of the scores calculated in Step 2, Step 3 and Step 4.
  • JEE Advanced 2020 rank list will be prepared based on the total marks of the candidates in the exam.

What will happen if two or more candidates score equal marks in JEE Advanced? In such a situation, the authorities will follow the same marks policy as that of JEE Advanced 2019, according to which the ranks will be allotted to candidates by using the method given below:

  • The candidate who will have more marks in Mathematics will be given a higher rank
  • If the tie still exists, then-candidate having more marks in Physics will be given a higher rank
  • If the tie still remains stagnant, then candidates will be given same ranks

JEE Advanced 2020: Rank List

These are the critera which were used to decide the inclusion of a candidate in the JEE Advanced 2019 Rank Lists-

Category Minimum Percentage of Marks in Each Subject Minimum Percentage of Total Marks

Step By Step Procedure for JoSAA Counselling:

Online Registration:

All candidates who have appeared for JEE MAIN are eligible to participate in seat allocation of the NIT+ system. All candidates who have qualified the JEE ADVANCED are eligible to register for seat allocation in all participating systems. Candidates have to log in using their JEE MAIN roll number and password. However for JEE Advanced qualified students, they have to use their JEE Advanced password.

Filling in of Choices:

Candidates after successful registration may begin the filling of choices of the program and the Institute in decreasing order of their preference. Candidates can fill as many choices as he/she may want.

Locking of choices:

Candidates MUST "lock" their choices after filling them. For candidates who do NOT lock their choices, their last saved choices will be locked automatically when the time-window for filling-in of choices closes.

Seat Allotment:

JoSAA will conduct many rounds for the allotment of seats. It will also conduct a mock round which will help student to know the possible chances of seat he is getting. Changes in order of preference are allowed after the mock round but not after the first round.

Downloading Allotment Letter and Seat acceptance:

Candidates allotted a seat must download the seat allotment letter and pay the seat acceptance fee (through SBI e-Challan/SBI NetBanking/SBI debit cards) and get the documents verified at any reporting center ( for provisional seat acceptance. The e-challan has to be downloaded and candidates have to pay Rs. 35,000 ( for general category candidates) and Rs. 15,000 ( for SC/ST/Gen-PwD/OBC-NCL-PwD/SC-PwD or ST-PwD).

Physical Reporting at the Centers:

Candidates who are allotted a seat need to visit the reporting center for document verification. They need to bring all the original and duplicate documents as listed on website of JoSAA and download and fill all the forms and submit it at reporting centers.

Participation in subsequent rounds:

A candidate is required to fill option for ‘freeze’, ‘slide’ or ‘float’ the choice of the academic program.

After each allotment of seat, candidates would have an option to freeze, float or slide.
Freeze: It means you want to continue with the option that is allotted to you.
Float: It means you have accepted the college but you want a better discipline in the same college
Slide: It means you have accepted the allotted seat but you are looking for betterment in the branch as well as college

If the candidate needs to change his selected option in any subsequent round he has to re-visit the reporting center and request option change among freeze, float or slide. Or else the option chosen him by in first round would be considered in all subsequent rounds.

Dual Reporting:

If in a subsequent round, a candidate’s allotment from NIT+ system changes to an IIT, the candidate MUST report ONCE AGAIN at an IIT reporting center, similarly if a candidate’s allotment from IIT changes to a NIT+ system, the candidate MUST report ONCE AGAIN at any NIT+ reporting centre, failure to do so will result in forfeiture of seats allocated in both NIT+ system and IIT.

Withdraw option:

A candidate, who has already accepted a seat, can withdraw the seat by reporting at a reporting center up to sixth round of seat allocation.

Important Instructions:


Candidates who do NOT register within the specified time window WILL NOT be able to seek admission for this academic year.

Filling-in of choices:

Candidates who do NOT fill-in choices within the specified time window WILL NOT be able to seek admission for this academic year.

Dual Reporting:

Two times reporting required in case of seat allotment changes from NIT+s system to IITs and vice versa. No modification of locked choices – once locked, choices CANNOT be modified.

The candidate must also check the course restrictions available on the website of JoSAA.
