JEE Main Eligibility Criteria 2021. The Joint Entrance Examinations (JEE) are conducted annually to select students for admission to various technical institutions across the country. They are held in 4 stages JEE main which is conducted by the NTA and JEE advanced which is held by a different IIT every year.
Eligibility: Candidates need to score at least 75 per cent in their class 12 board examinations or be in the top 20 percentile of their Boards to be eligible for JEE main or advanced.
For candidates of the SC and ST categories, this has been lowered to 65 per cent. JEE advanced further requires that the candidates score high in JEE main and rank among the top 2,24,000 candidates.
Eligibility criteria: The candidate must have been born on or after October 1, 1994. Candidates interested in applying need to be intermediate or class 12 pass from a recognised board and must have appeared and qualified in class 12th examination or should appear in the class 12 examination in the current year.
Admission criteria for IIT: The number of attempts for JEE Main is limited to 3. Admission criteria to undergraduate engineering Programs at NITs, IIITs, Other Centrally Funded technical institutions, institutions funded by participating state governments, and other Institutions shall include the performance in the class 12/equivalent qualifying Examination and in the Joint Entrance Examination, JEE (Main).
The Paper 1 (BE/BTech) of JEE (Main) will also be an eligibility test for the JEE (Advanced), which the candidate has to take if he/she is aspiring for admission to the undergraduate programmes offered by the IITs.
Aadhar mandatory: Moreover, NTA has made it mandatory to have an Aadhar card to apply for the exam. Candidates who already have an Aadhar card will have to enter their Aadhar number in their application form. Those who have applied for their Aadhar but have not received it yet will have to provide Aadhar enrolment id in the application form.
Exam fee: The exam fee ranges from Rs 1,000 for general category boys to 250 for the reserved category. For those appearing for both paper 1 and paper 2, the fee ranges from Rs 1,800 to Rs 650.

Exam pattern: Paper 1 is for candidates appearing for admission to BE and BTech courses. It will contain objective type questions (both online and offline) in physics, chemistry and mathematics. Paper 2 is conducted for students who wish to pursue BArch or BPlan. This paper will solely be conducted in the pen and paper mode and will include objective type questions in mathematics, an aptitude test and a drawing test.
Languages: The papers will be conducted in English and Hindi mediums, except in Gujarat, Daman&Diu and Dadra and Nagar Haveli where the paper will also be conducted in Gujarati.
JEE Main Exam Dates/Exam Schedule: The NTA would conduct the JEE main January exam in January first week and NTA would conduct the JEE main April exam in April first week
Application process: Candidates who wish to apply for the JEE main can do so from the official portal of the exam at jeemain.nic.in. A portal for the JEE advanced examination has also been opened and candidates can stay updated about the exams by visiting jeeadv.ac.in.
