JEE Main Paper Pattern:

JEE Main Exam has two papers - Paper I & Paper II.

JEE Main Exam Pattern for Paper – 1:

1. Online - Computer Based Test (CBT):

  • Facilitation Centres (in cities where the online exam will be conducted) will be operational in March 2015 to aid hands on practice for students who wish to familiarize themselves with the online Exam pattern.
  • The list of the facilitation Centres will be announced in March 2015 by CBSE.
  • The CBT will be covering questions from Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics with equal weightage to all subjects.
  • The JEE Main Exam will consist of three parts with equal weightage to all the three subjects.
  • The candidates will have to opt for the correct response for each question out of four responses given.
  • The exam will be for 3 hours in duration.
  • Each question will be allotted 4 marks.

  • Zero marks will be deducted for no answer

2. Offline - Pen & Paper Based:

  • The exam will be of 3 hours duration
  • 30 questions from each subject namely Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics will be asked making the total number of questions to be 90.
  • The JEE Main Exam will be of multiple choices with one correct answer from a choice of four answers for each question.
  • All subjects carry equal weightage with each question carrying 4 marks for a correct answer.
