What is JEE Main and JEE Advanced?
Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is an all India common entrance examination which is conducted for admission in various engineering courses. In 2012, CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) has announced this common examination in place of AIEEE and IIT-JEE. JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) is being conducted into two parts, JEE-Main and JEE-Advanced. JEE-Main exam is to admission in IIITs (Indian Institutes of Information Technology), National Institutes of Technology, CFTIs (Central Funded Technical Institute), etc. and JEE-Advanced is for admission in Indian Institutes of Technology and the Indian School of Mines (ISM), Dhanbad.
As IIT's and ISM are the most premier and prestigious engineering colleges in India, the candidates have to clear the second level of exam JEE-Advanced for securing admission in them. Only top candidates of JEE-Main are eligible to appear for JEE-Advanced exam. The candidates who clear JEE-Advanced exam have the opportunity to join either of the IIT's or ISM.
The candidates who clear JEE-Main but are not eligible for JEE-Advanced can seek admission in other prestigious engineering colleges like Indian Institute of Information Technology, National Institute of Technology and followed by other government and private engineering colleges.
