JEE Mains vs JEE Advanced
JEE Mains vs JEE Advanced – What is the difference??

JEE Mains vs JEE Advanced come to every aspirant’s mind when he/she starts preparing for JEE. Everyone want to know what is the difference between JEE Mains and Advanced? Why two separate exams are conducted?? And so on..

Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is an engineering entrance examination, held at national level in India every year. JEE is further divided into phases – JEE Mains and the JEE Advanced. Both these exams are interrelated, but are also different at the same time. Interrelated because only those candidates who clear JEE Mains are allowed to take the JEE Advanced Exam. But how are JEE Advanced and JEE Main different from each other have a lot many points to be discussed.

Thus, in this article we will be jotting down major differences between JEE Mains and JEE Advanced:


JEE Mains vs JEE Advanced – Admission

JEE Mains, if qualified, ensures admission in the National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs), and colleges designated as “Government funded technical institutes” (GFTIs) and some other private institutes participating in JEE Mains Counselling depending on the scores secured. Whereas, candidates seeking admission to the various Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and Indian School of Mines (ISM), Dhanbad need to qualify JEE Advanced. However, as mentioned above only the students selected in JEE Mains are eligible for appearing in JEE Advanced.


JEE Mains vs JEE Advanced – Difficulty level

When we talk about difficulty level, it is a well-known fact that JEE Advanced is far more difficult than JEE Mains. While the aim of JEE Mains is to make sure that the students comprehend their class 11th and 12th syllabus properly. On the other hand JEE-Advanced has a more logical approach it emphasizes more on practical application of the concepts and problem-solving skills of the students.


JEE Mains vs JEE Advanced – No. of Papers

JEE Mains and JEE Advanced both have two papers but, it is not compulsory for all the candidates to take both the papers in JEE Mains whereas, in JEE Advanced it is compulsory to give both the papers. In JEE Mains Paper 1 is for those who want admission in B.E. and B.Tech courses and Paper 2 is for those who want admission in B.Arch and B.Planning courses. On the In JEE Advanced candidates must sit for both Paper 1 and Paper 2 in this exam to get admission into engineering courses. For the candidates who wish to be admitted into architectural courses that IITs offer, the student must clear both Paper 1 and Paper 2 in the exam and then sit for the Architecture Aptitude Test (AAT).


JEE Mains vs JEE Advanced – No. of Attempts

Candidates can’t appear in the exam as many times as they wish. The exam authorities have set a rule for the number of attempts. For JEE Mains, according to a notification by CBSE, the maximum number of attempts are limited to 3. Whereas, for JEE Advanced a candidate can attempt the exam maximum two times and that too in consecutive years.


JEE Mains vs JEE Advanced – Syllabus

There is a slight difference in the syllabus of both the exams (JEE Mains – Paper 1 and JEE Advanced – Paper 1 & 2). Some topics covered in JEE Mains are not in the syllabus of JEE Advanced and vice versa.

Here is a list of such topics for all the three subjects:

Subjects Topics in Advanced but not in Mains Topics in Mains but not in Advanced
  • Thermal Physics
  • Electronic Devices
  • Electromagnetic Waves
  • Communication Systems
  • Electrochemistry: Equivalent Conductivity
  • Nuclear Chemistry
  • Biomolecules
  • Chemistry in Everyday Life
  • Sets, Relations and Functions
  • Statistics
  • Trigonometry (some topics)
  • Mathematical Reasoning

JEE Mains vs JEE Advanced – Exam Pattern

The question paper pattern is fixed for JEE Mains whereas it slightly changes every year for JEE Advanced. The No. of Questions, Marks Distribution and even the Type of Questions asked in JEE Mains Exam are all fixed. On the other hand all these factors keep on changing in the JEE Advanced Exam.

JEE Mains JEE Advanced
No. of Questions No. of Questions
120 (30 for each Subject) 120 (30 for each Subject)
Total Marks Total Marks
360 (equally divided in all the three Subjects) Varies
Type of Questions Type of Questions
Fixed – MCQ’s (Single Correct Option)

MCQ’s (Single Correct Option)

MCQ’s (Multiple Correct Option)

Single Integer Type

Matrix Matching

Comprehension Based

Marking System Marking System
Fixed – 4 Marks for correct answer and -1 for incorrect answer. Varies

These were a few major differences between JEE Mains and JEE Advanced which distinguish them from each other. Moreover it is a fact that everything seems difficult if don’t prepare for it properly.

We have tried best to write all major differences between the two exams. If you still have any doubt or confusion regarding the same please feel free to contact us via [email protected]
