JEE Main and Advanced Exams

From 2013 onwards, there will be a single entrance test for the IITs, IIITs and the NITs in the country. Other institutes like government funded ones will also be using the test results to give admissions to students. This new entrance test will be held in two phases called the JEE main and the JEE advanced. In addition to these two tests, class XII th exam percentage will also be given consideration. 
The two papers will be conducted on different dates, with a gap of 3-4 weeks and the students who get selected in the JEE mains will be allowed to write the JEE advanced. The major shift from the earlier proposed test is that now a student aspiring for IITs would need to be in the top 20 percentile (top 20% scorers) in their respective boards, and secondly only the select top 1,50,000 would be appearing for the JEE Advanced test.
For admission to the NITs, students need not take the advanced test. Final admissions list will be prepared with 40% Class XII percent weightage and 60% of advanced test scores. JEE Main will be conducted by
CBSE, while JEE Advanced by the IITs. The time gap between the two exams has not been made public yet.
