# JEE syllabus and general description

**General Description**

The Joint entrance examination (JEE) is an all
India level examination conducted by the Indian Institute of Technology (IITs)
and the central board of secondary education (CBSE). The candidates aspiring to
secure admission to the prestigious and premier institutions in India such as
IIT, IISc, ISM and IIISER are required to clear the JEE-main entrance and
JEE-advanced entrance examination. Thre are two phases of examination for JEE.
