JEE Main Exam

JEE Main 2022

The Joint Entrance Examination (Main), popularly known as JEE Main, is a national level entrance exam conducted by the NTA to offer admission to BE/BTech, BPlan and BArch courses offered by NITs (National Institute of Technology), IIITs (Indian Institute of Information Technology) and other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs) across the country. JEE Main is also the gateway for JEE Advanced. Only the top 2.5 lakh score holders in NTA JEE Mains 2021 will be eligible to apply for JEE Advanced for admission to various undergraduate engineering programmes offered by IITs in India.
The counselling cum seat allotment for all the IITs, NITs, IIITs and CFTIs will be organised and managed by the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA). Last year, 107 institutes participated in JoSAA Counselling. This year the number of participating institutes may go up as engineering admission in UP will also be based on JEE scores following the cancellation of UPSEEE.
