Format for JEE (advanced) may change in 2014
MUMBAI: The Joint Entrance Exam (JEE)-Advanced may change once again in 2014, a fresh document has hinted. JEE, a two-stage exam, is the entrance criterion for the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and will be conducted, for the first time, next year. The top 1.5 lakh candidates from the first stage, the JEE-Main, will be eligible to appear for the JEE-Advanced.
The latest document answering frequently asked questions in view of the JEE reforms has been put up by the IITs. The 2013 format for the Advanced Exam will be based on two three-hour papers (similar to the JEE so far), with multiplechoice questions. However, it is not clear if this will remain as the format in subsequent years.
In response to the question on the IIT Bombay website, “will the examination structure remain the same in 2014”, the answer says, “No. The examination structure for JEE (Advanced) – 2014 and beyond may change. Details regarding this will be made available at a later date.”
