About JEE(Main) 2024

The Joint Entrance Examination, JEE (Main) comprises two papers. Paper 1 is conducted for admission to Undergraduate Engineering Programs (B.E/B.Tech.) at NITs, IIITs, other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs), and Institutions/Universities funded/recognized by participating State Governments. JEE (Main) is also an eligibility test for JEE (Advanced), which is conducted for admission to IITs. Paper 2 is conducted for admission to B. Arch and B. Planning courses in the country.

The JEE (Main) – 2024 will be conducted in 02 (two) sessions for admissions in the next academic session. The candidates will thus benefit in the following ways:

This will give two opportunities to the candidates to improve their scores in the examination if they are not able to give their best in one attempt.

In the first attempt, the students will get a first-hand experience of taking an examination and will know their mistakes which they can improve while attempting for the second time.

This will reduce the chances of dropping a year and droppers would not have to waste an entire year.

If anyone missed the examination due to reasons beyond control (such as the Board examination), then he/she will not have to wait for one entire year.

A candidate need not appear in both Sessions. However, if a candidate appears in more than one Session then his/her best of the JEE (Main) NTA Scores will be considered for preparation of the Merit List/ Ranking.

Eligibility Criteria

Age Criteria

For appearing in the JEE (Main) – 2024, there is no age limit for the candidates. The candidates who have passed the class 12/equivalent examination in 2021, 2022, 2023or appearing in 2024 irrespective of their age can appear in JEE (Main) – 2024 examination. However, the candidates may be required to fulfill the age criteria of the Institute(s) to which they are desirous of taking admission.

List of Qualifying Examinations (QE)

Intermediate or two-year Pre-University examination conducted by a recognized Board/ University.

Final examination of the two-year course of the Joint Services Wing of the National Defence Academy.

Senior Secondary School Examination conducted by the National Institute of Open Schooling with a minimum of five subjects.

In case the Class 12 Examination is not a public examination, the candidate must have passed at least one public (Board or Pre-University) examination earlier.

Year of Appearance in Qualifying Examination

Only those candidates who have passed the Class 12/equivalent examination in 2021, 2022, or those who are appearing in Class 12/equivalent examination in 2023, are eligible to appear in JEE (Main) – 2023.

Candidates who passed the Class 12/equivalent examination in 2020 or before as well as those who will appear in such examination in 2024 or later are not eligible to appear in JEE (Main) – 2023.

State of Eligibility

State code of eligibility means the code of the State from where the candidate has passed Class 12 (or equivalent) qualifying examination by virtue of which the candidate becomes eligible to appear in JEE (Main) – 2024. It is important to note that the State code of eligibility does NOT depend upon the native place or the place of residence of the candidate. For example, if a candidate appears for the Class 12 (or equivalent) qualifying examination from an Institution situated in New Delhi and is a resident of Noida, Uttar Pradesh,  then the candidate’s State code of eligibility will be that of Delhi and NOT that of Uttar Pradesh.

If a candidate has passed the Class 12 (or equivalent) qualifying examination from one State but appeared for improvement from another State, the candidate’s State code of eligibility will be from where the candidate first passed the Class 12 (or equivalent) examination and NOT the State from where the candidate has appeared for improvement.

Candidate passed/appearing for Class 12 from NIOS should select the State of Eligibility according to the State in which the study Centre is located.

For Indian nationals passing the Class 12 (or equivalent) examination from Nepal/Bhutan, the State code of eligibility will be determined based on a permanent address in India as given in the passport of the candidate.

The State code of eligibility of OCI passing Class 12 (or equivalent) examination in India is at par with Indian nationals. However, OCI passing the Class 12 (or equivalent) examination from an institution abroad are eligible for Other State quota seats or All India quota seats (but NOT for Home State quota seats) in all NITs, IIITs and Other-CFTIs.

The result of JEE (Main)-2024 will be uploaded on NTA website www.nta.ac.in / www.jeemain.nta.nic.in as per schedule. A scanned copy of the Final Scorecard of JEE (Main) – 2024 will be sent to the registered e-mail address of the Candidates.
