INFORMATION BULLETIN
Introduction and Scheme of Examination
The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India (GOI) has established National
Testing Agency (NTA) as an independent autonomous and self-sustained premier testing organization under
Society Registration Act 1860 for conducting efficient, transparent and international standards tests in order to
assess the competency of candidates for admissions to premier higher education institutions.
The Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India has
entrusted the responsibility of conducting Joint Entrance Examination JEE(Main) to the NTA from 2019
onwards.
Admission criteria to Undergraduate Engineering Programs at NITs, IIITs, other Centrally Funded Technical
Institutions (CFTI), 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 (B. E. /B. Tech.) 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 programs offered by the IITs.
About JEE (Main) – 2019
The JEE (Main)-2019 will be conducted twice before admissions in the next academic session. The students will
have following benefits of the new pattern:
 This will give one more opportunity to the students to improve their scores in examination if they fail
to give their best in first attempt without wasting their whole academic year.
 In first attempt, the students will get a first-hand experience of taking an examination and to know
their mistakes which they can improve while attempting for the second time.
 This will reduce chances of dropping a year and droppers would not have to waste a full year.
 If anyone missed the examination due to reasons beyond control, then he/she won’t have to wait for
one full year.
 The student’s best of the two NTA scores will be considered for preparation of Merit List/ Ranking.
The first JEE (Main) – 2019 was held in January, 2019 whereas the second will be held in April, 2019.
Mode of Examination
JEE (Main)-2019 will be conducted in the following mode:
a) Paper-1 (B.E. /B. Tech.) in “Computer Based Test (CBT)” mode only.
b) Paper-2 (B. Arch/ B.Planning): Mathematics- Part I and Aptitude Test-Part II in “Computer Based
Test (CBT)” mode only and Drawing Test –Part III in “Pen & Paper Based” (offline) mode to be
attempted on drawing sheet.
Choice of Medium of Question Papers
The medium of Question Paper shall be in English, Hindi and Gujarati.
