Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are institutions of national importance established through Acts of Parliament for fostering excellence in education. Over the years, IITs have created a world-class educational platform that is dynamically sustained through quality teaching and internationally acclaimed research with excellent infrastructure and the best available minds. Through JEE Advanced, IITs offer admission into undergraduate courses leading to a Bachelor’s, Integrated Master’s or Bachelor-Master Dual Degree in Engineering, Sciences or Architecture. Both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees are awarded to candidates enrolled in the dual degree programs upon successful completion of the course curriculum. Candidates who wish to pursue Engineering at IIT have to appear in JEE Advanced which is hosted every year. Interested candidates can check all the details regarding JEE Advanced from this page below.
Exam is held as a computer-based test . Important dates of JEE Advanced are as follows.

How to prepare for JEE Advanced?
Preparation for JEE Main and JEE Advanced go hand in hand. A more detailed guide can be read here for JEE Advanced Preparation.
Key points to keep in mind are:
- You should have strong calculating powers.
- Focus on improving your speed and accuracy.
- Take mock tests, solve previous year question papers (solve at least past 10-year papers), solve sample papers.
- Do not fear the exam.
Most importantly: The last lap of preparation should be more about revision, strength building, gap filling (studying to get some idea of topics which have been left untouched until now).

JEE Advanced Exam Pattern
Only two things in JEE Advanced are certain: online mode and 3 hours each for paper 1 and paper 2.
Those who get services of a scribe get one hour extra.
There are two papers namely paper 1 and paper 2 in JEE Advanced; both are compulsory. Their exam pattern is not revealed before the exam actually takes place. Hence candidates can only look at past year papers and prepare with the mindset that anything may come in exam.
Here is an analysis of past three years of JEE Advanced.
Each year there were three parts of each paper.
Further, there were three sections in each part.
Each section had a different type of question. Types of the questions and their marking scheme were as follows.
Seats In IITs
The rank obtained in JEE Advanced examination forms the basis for admission in twenty-three IITs in India. In addition, there are some other institutes also which use the score for admissions.
As per JoSAA seat matrix of IITs (since JoSAA counselling is the gateway for admissions to IITs as well as NITs, IIITs, CFTIs), the total number of seats in IITs is 10,988 which are offered on an all-India basis.
A break up of the seats is as follows.
|S.No.||Name of IIT||Number of seats|
|14||IIT (ISM) Dhanbad||912|
|16||IIT (BHU) Varanasi||1090|
