Formerly, JEE MAIN Exam was called as AIEEE and JEE ADVANCED Exam as IIT. The number of students appearing for the JEE Main exam has considerably increased over the years. This examination allows students to get enrolled in India's most renowned & prestigious engineering institutes. Since 2013, JEE Main has shown record number of applicants approx. 13 lakhs which is the single day largest exam in the world.
JEE MAIN is for getting admission into NITs, IITs & CFTIs. Admission to NITs and IIT’s depends on 40 % weightage for total marks scored in Class XII board/ equivalent exam and 60 % weightage to performance in JEE Main.
