JEE (Advanced) 2022

1. INDIAN INSTITUTES OF TECHNOLOGY​

Admission into various undergraduate programs across IITs is carried out through the Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced) [JEE (Advanced)]. The Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced) 2022 [JEE (Advanced) 2022] and the subsequent process of admission to the IITs shall be governed by the some rules, read in conjunction with the Business Rules of the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA) 2022 (to be published separately).

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. The faculty and alumni of IITs occupy key positions in academia and industry throughout the world and continue to make considerable impact on all sections of the society. At present, there are twenty-three IITs across the country.
The primary objectives of IITs are as follows:

  • To create an environment that encourages freedom of thought and pursuit of excellence and inculcates the necessary vision and self-discipline to achieve excellence.
  • To build a solid foundation of scientific and technical knowledge and to prepare competent and motivated engineers and scientists.
  • To kindle an entrepreneurial spirit among the students.
  • To prepare the students to become outstanding professionals and contribute to nation-building.

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. In some of the IITs, students enrolled into the 4-year Bachelor’s program have the option to pursue B.Tech. (Honors) and/or B.Tech. with Minors. Dual Degree students may also pursue a Minor. Further, in some IITs B. Tech. students also have the option to pursue Interdisciplinary Dual Degree, with Bachelors in parent Department and Master’s in some other Department. All the above options require fulfilment of certain academic performance related criteria.

However, not all the listed programs and courses are available in all the institutes.

TYPE OF ACADEMIC PROGRAMS OFFERED AT IITs WITH THEIR MINIMUM DURATION*

* Only those academic programs for which admission is based on JEE (Advanced) examination are shown here. These Institutes also have other academic programs, viz., B.Des., M.Tech., M.Sc., Joint M.Sc.-Ph.D., Joint M.Tech.-Ph.D., M.Des., Ph.D., etc. with different admission procedure and criteria.

PREPARATORY COURSES

  • The seats reserved for $\mathrm{SC}$, $\mathrm{ST}$ and $\mathrm{PwD}$ candidates which remain vacant will be allotted to the candidates of respective categories for admission to a preparatory course of 1-year duration on the basis of relaxed admission criteria.
  • Admission is given to the candidates in the preparatory course provided (i) the seats reserved for the respective category are vacant, (ii) candidates satisfy minimum norms, and (iii) candidates have not accepted a seat in the preparatory course earlier.
  • Selected IITs will run preparatory courses of one-year duration for for $\mathrm{SC}$, $\mathrm{ST}$ and $\mathrm{PwD}$ candidates intended to prepare them to pursue the academic program (for Academic Year 2023-24) to which they have been allocated. At the end of this course, candidates are declared ‘pass’ or ‘fail’. The institute at which one-year preparatory course is run for a candidate may be different from the institute allocated to the candidate for their academic program.
  • On successful completion of the course, the candidates will be offered direct admission in 2023 (Academic Year 2023-24) to the already allotted undergraduate course at the originally allocated IIT.
  • Candidates admitted to the preparatory course are also eligible to appear for JEE (Advanced) 2023 subject to fulfilling other eligibility criteria.
  • Filling-in of choices for preparatory courses is to be completed through the JoSAA online portal.

  1. MODE OF EXAMINATION

The JEE (Advanced) 2022 examination will be conducted only in the Computer Based Test (CBT) mode. To attain familiarity with the CBT mode candidates are advised to take mock tests available on the website https://jeeadv.ac.in.

Each candidate will be allotted a computer terminal (node) at the test centre. The welcome login screen of the CBT will display the photograph of the candidate allotted to that particular computer. For login, the candidate will have to enter the JEE (Advanced) 2022 Roll number as login-id and enter the date of birth (in ddmmyyyy format) as password (e.g., if the candidate’s date of birth is 16th September 2002, the password needed to be entered would be 16092002).

After login, the candidate would be able to see the detailed instructions for the examination. Candidates are advised to go through the instructions very carefully regarding the type of questions and marking scheme. At the designated time of the beginning of the examination, the candidates will be able to proceed and see the questions on the computer screen. Candidates will have the option to choose (and also switch/toggle between) his/her preferred language (English or Hindi) during the entire period of the examination.

The keyboard attached to the computer, if any, will be disabled during the entire duration of the examination. Depending on the type of question, the answers to questions can be entered either by clicking on the virtual on-screen keyboard (numeric or otherwise) using the computer mouse or by clicking on the chosen option(s) using the computer mouse. Candidates will have the option to change/modify answers already entered anytime during the entire duration of the examination.

In case the computer/mouse allotted to any candidate malfunctions at any time during the test, the candidate will be immediately allotted another computer system and the time lost due to this will be automatically adjusted in the server so as to give the candidate the full allotted time of 3 hours (180 minutes) [4 hours (240 minutes) for PwD candidates who opted for compensatory time] to answer the questions in each paper.

Each test centre will have representatives of the technical partner administering the examination as well as representatives of one of the IITs. The candidates may approach these representatives, through the invigilator, in case of any difficulty during the examination.

  1. CHOICE OF MEDIUM OF QUESTION PAPER

The question papers will be in both English and Hindi languages. The candidates will have the option to choose (and also switch between) the preferred language anytime during the examination. The English version will prevail in the event of any difference of opinion.

  1. SCHEME OF EXAMINATION
  • JEE (Advanced) 2021 will consist of two question papers: Paper 1 and Paper 2 of three hours duration each. Appearing for both the papers is compulsory.
  • Each question paper will consist of three separate sections, viz., Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.
  • The question papers will consist of questions designed to test comprehension, reasoning, and analytical ability of candidates.
  • Negative marks may be awarded for incorrect answers for some of the questions. Details of the marking scheme will be provided in the “Instructions to Candidates” section at the time of examination.
  • The candidates must carefully read and adhere to the detailed instructions given in the question papers available at the time of examination.
  • Although sufficient care will be taken for the correctness of questions, in the event that a question(s) needs to be dropped, full marks for that question(s) will be awarded to ALL candidates.

  1. ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR INDIAN NATIONALS FOR APPEARING FOR JEE (ADVANCED) 2021

All the candidates must simultaneously fulfil each and every one of the following five criteria to appear for JEE (Advanced) 2022.

Criterion 1 – Performance in JEE (Main) 2022: Candidates should be among the top $2,50,000^{*}$ successful candidates (including all categories) in B.E./B.Tech. Paper of JEE (Main) 2022.

The percentages of various categories of candidates to be shortlisted are: $10 \%$ for $\mathrm{GEN}$ -$\mathrm{EWS}$, $27 \%$ for $\mathrm{OBC}$-$\mathrm{NCL}$, $15 \%$ for $\mathrm{SC}$, $7.5 \%$ for $\mathrm{ST}$ and the remaining $40.5 \%$ is OPEN for all. Within each of these five categories, $5 \%$ horizontal reservation is available for $\mathrm{PwD}$ candidates.

The following table shows the order to be followed while choosing top $2,50,000^{*}$ candidates in various categories based on the performance in B.E./B.Tech. Paper of JEE (Main) 2022.

Category-wise distribution of top $2,50,000^{*}$ candidates (Criterion 1)

* The total number of candidates may be slightly greater than 2,50,000 in the presence of “tied” ranks / scores in any category.

Criterion 2 – Age limit: Candidates should have been born on or after October 1, 1997. Five years age relaxation is given to $\mathrm{SC}$, $\mathrm{ST}$ and $\mathrm{PWD}$ candidates, i.e., these candidates should have been born on or after October 1, 1992.

Criterion 3 – Number of attempts: A candidate can attempt JEE (Advanced) maximum of two times in two consecutive years.

Criterion 4 – Appearance in Class XII (or equivalent) examination*: A candidate should have appeared for the Class XII (or equivalent) examination for the first time in either 2021 or 2022 with the subjects Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Candidates who had appeared in Class XII (or equivalent) examination, for the first time in 2020 or earlier, are NOT eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2022.

* By appearance in Class XII (or equivalent) examination, it is meant that the board concerned declared the result of a particular candidate for that year irrespective of whether or not an examination was conducted. It will be considered as an appearance even if the result of a particular candidate got withheld.

However, if the examination Board of Class XII (or equivalent) declared the results for the academic year 2019-20 after June 2020, then the candidates of that board who appeared for their Class XII exam in 2020 are also eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2022, provided they meet all the other eligibility criteria. In case, the examination Board of Class XII (or equivalent) declared the results for the academic year 2019-20 before June 2020 but the result of a particular candidate was withheld, then the candidate will not be eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced) 2022.

Relaxation of Criteria 1 to 4 as a special case for JEE (Advanced) 2022:

RESERVATION OF SEATS

Indian nationals belonging to certain categories are admitted under the seats reserved for them in accordance with the rules prescribed by the Government of India. The categories and the extent of reservation are as follows:

– General Category belonging to Economically Weaker Section ($\mathrm{GEN}$ -$\mathrm{EWS}$) – $10 \%$ of seats in every course. The benefit of reservation will be given only to those General category candidates who satisfy the condition given in the OM No. 20013/01/2018-BC-II dated January 17, 2019 issued by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment.

– Other Backward Classes belonging to the Non-Creamy Layer ($\mathrm{OBC}$-$\mathrm{NCL}$) – $27 \%$ of seats in every course. $\mathrm{OBCs}$ should be listed in the current updated central list of $\mathrm{OBC}$s (http://www.ncbc.nic.in). OBCs present in the state list but not covered in the central list of $\mathrm{OBCs}$ (as per the list in http://www.ncbc.nic.in) are not eligible to claim the reservation. The criteria for Non-Creamy Layer ($\mathrm{OBC}$-$\mathrm{NCL}$) will be as per the notification of Government of India.

Candidates belonging to the creamy layer of $\mathrm{OBC}$ are NOT entitled for reservation. Such candidates are treated as belonging to the general ($\mathrm{GEN}), i.e. unreserved category, and they will be eligible only for the $\mathrm{OPEN} seats – the seats for which all candidates are eligible.

– Scheduled Caste ($\mathrm{SC}$) – $15 \%$ of seats in every course.

– Scheduled Tribe ($\mathrm{ST}$) – $7.5 \%$ of seats in every course.

The benefit of reservation will be given only to those castes and tribes that are mentioned in the respective central list of corresponding states published by the Government of India (websites: http://socialjustice.nic.in and https://ncst.nic.in).

– Persons with Disability ($\mathrm{PwD}$) – $5 \%$ seats in each of $\mathrm{OPEN}$, $\mathrm{GEN}$-$\mathrm{EWS}$, $\mathrm{OBC}$-$\mathrm{NCL}$, $\mathrm{SC}$ and $\mathrm{ST}$ category seats.

Candidates with at least $40 \%$ impairment irrespective of the type of disability i.e., locomotor, visual or SEVERE dyslexic shall be eligible for the benefits of $\mathrm{PwD}$ sub-category.

Leprosy-cured candidates who are otherwise fit to pursue the courses are also included in this sub-category.

Candidates belonging to the $\mathrm{GEN}$-$\mathrm{EWS}$, $\mathrm{OBC}$-$\mathrm{NCL}$, $\mathrm{SC}$, $\mathrm{ST}$ and $\mathrm{PwD}$ categories/sub-categories will be declared as qualified on the basis of a relaxed criterion.

Unfilled seats, if any, reserved under $\mathrm{GEN}$-$\mathrm{EWS}$ and $\mathrm{OBC}$-$\mathrm{NCL}$ category will be dereserved to OPEN category seats, subject to availability of further rounds of counselling. However, seats remaining vacant under the $\mathrm{SC}$ and $\mathrm{ST}$ categories shall NOT be de-reserved to any other category. The reservation for $\mathrm{PwD}$ candidates is horizontal and hence, unfilled seats if any, will be de-reserved to the respective categories i.e., unfilled $\mathrm{SC}$-$\mathrm{PwD}$ seats will be converted to the $\mathrm{SC}$ category seats and so on. This will again be subject to availability of further rounds of counselling.

The category of a candidate as entered in the database, which will be made available by the JEE Apex Board (which conducts JEE (Main) 2022 examination), will be final and shall remain same in JEE (Advanced) 2022 examination and requests for change of category will NOT be entertained.

Candidates must note that the benefit of reservation will be given to them subject to verification of documents. If it is discovered at any stage that a candidate has used a false / fake / incorrect document, or has furnished false, incorrect or incomplete information, in order to avail the benefit of reservation, then such a candidate shall be excluded from all admission processes. In case such a candidate has already been given admission, the admission shall stand cancelled.

DEFENCE SERVICE CANDIDATES

Defence Service (DS) candidates are children of defence / paramilitary personnel killed or permanently disabled in action during war or peacetime operations. Two seats are available for preferential allotment in each Institute for DS candidates. To avail this preferential allotment, a DS candidate must be in the Common Rank List of JEE (Advanced) 2022.

FOREIGN NATIONALS

Candidates who are NOT citizens of India (by birth or naturalized) and/or are OCI/PIO card holders are treated as foreign nationals [Reference: (The Gazette of India) No. CG-DL-E04032021-225647, dated: $4^{\text {th }}$ March, 2021 [S.O. 1050(E)]]. Seats allotted to such foreign national candidates are supernumerary with a cap of $10 \%$ of total number of seats in every course. These candidates are outside the ambit of reservation of seats under the $\mathrm{GEN}$-$\mathrm{EWS}$, $\mathrm{OBC}$-$\mathrm{NCL}$, $\mathrm{SC}$, $\mathrm{ST}$ and $\mathrm{PwD}$ categories / sub-categories as specified herein.

The foreign national candidates who have studied or are studying abroad at 10 level or equivalent at the time of registering for JEE (Advanced) 2022 are NOT required to write JEE (Main) 2022 and may register for JEE (Advanced) 2022 directly subject to fulfilment of other eligibility criteria (for details refer to https://jeeadv.ac.in/foreign.php).

Following the directions of the Ministry of Education, Government of India (Reference: F.No.35-8/2017-TS.III dated $30^{\text {th }}$ October, 2017), and the decision taken by IIT Council, supernumerary seats have been created for female candidates for improving the gender balance in the undergraduate programs in IITs. These supernumerary seats will be offered (a) to only those female candidates who are declared qualified in JEE (Advanced) 2022, and, (b) strictly based on the performance in JEE (Advanced) 2022.
