JEE 2016 Entrance Exam

JEE (Main) 2016 Overview

The All India Engineering/ Architecture Entrance Examination (AIEEE) was held every year by CBSE on all India basis for admission to professional and technical programmes in India. But from 2013 onwards the JEE Mains replaced the AIEEE exam. Students are required to take the new Joint Entrance Exam (JEE Mains)  for admission to engineering courses in the esteemed IITs, NITs, IIITs, deemed universities and other centrally funded technical institutions.

JEE (Main) 2016 Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible to apply for the B.E./ B.Tech course, you should have studied Physics & Mathematics at 10+2 level with any one from Chemistry, Bio-Technology, Computer Science or Biology as optional subjects. For the B.Arch/ B.Planning course, students should have had Mathematics with 50% marks in aggregate at 10+2 level. The equivalent examinations of 10+2 are:

  • The +2 level examination in the 10 + 2 pattern of examination of any recognized Central/State Board Of Secondary Examination, Central Board of Secondary Examination, New Delhi and Council for Indian School certificate Examination, New Delhi.Intermediate or two-year Pre-University Examination conducted by a recognized Board/University.
  • Final examination of the two- year course of the joint services wing of National Defence Academy.
  • Any public School/Board/University Examination in India or in foreign countries recognised by the Association of Indian Universities as equivalent to 10 + 2 system.
  • H.S.C. Vocational Examination.
  • A Pass grade in the Senior secondary School Examination conducted by the National Open School with a minimum of five subjects.

JEE (Main) 2016 Exam Syllabus

The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE Main 2016) will be conducted by the JEE Apex Board for admission to undergraduate engineering programmes in NITs, IIITs, other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs), participating State Government Institutions etc.
For admission to NITs, CFTIs like IIITs etc. and other participating Institutions, the merit/rank list shall be prepared based on 40% weightage to school Boards marks in class 12th or equivalent examination and 60% weightage to IIT JEE (Main). The weightage to school Board/Equivalent examination marks shall be considered only after normalization.
The IIT JEE (Main) will also be the eligibility test for the JEE (Advanced), which the candidate has to take if he/she is aspiring for admission to the undergraduate programmes offered by the IITs/ ISM Dhanbad.
JEE Mains 2016 shall have two papers, Paper-1 (B. E./B. Tech.) and Paper-2 (B. Arch./B. Planning.). Depending upon the course(s) candidates are seeking admission, they may take Paper-1 (B. E./B. Tech.), or Paper-2 (B. Arch./B. Planning.), or both.
Number of Attempts
The number of attempts which a candidate can avail at JEE (Main) shall be limited to 03 (three).

Difference between B Tech and B.E

What is B.Tech. and B.E.?

What is B.Tech.?

Bachelor of Technology is an undergraduate academic degree conferred after the completion of a three or four year program of studies at an accredited university or accredited university-degree level college in the Commonwealth of Nations, Norway, Republic of Ireland, the United States, and other countries. The common abbreviation for Bachelor of Technology is B.Tech., or B.Tech.(Hons), if awarded with honours.

The degree is awarded to those who have undertaken a Bachelor of Science degree program supplemented by either occupational placements (e.g., supervised practical  or internships) or practice-based classroom courses. Due to the supplemental requirements, the degree normally takes at least four years.

In India, the Bachelor of Technology degree is used by the highly ranked and autonomous institutes such as Indian Institute of Technology (IITs), Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT formerly UDCT) for professional engineering programs. Most other institutions in India are affiliated to a university and thus use the Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) degree.

What is B.E.?

Bachelor of Engineering (commonly abbreviated as BE or BEng) is an undergraduate academic degree awarded to a student after three, four or five years of studying engineering at an accredited university in the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Finland, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Nigeria, China, India and Pakistan. It is a professional degree that involves a requirement for undertaking some engineering work. This is controlled by the national professional engineering society or institute that accredits the universities, usually regulated by law.

Some institutions award either a Bachelor of Science (BSc) or Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) degree to undergraduate students of engineering study. In some cases, Bachelor of Engineering degrees are given to students who take engineering courses as a majority of their course load. However, many universities in Canada only award the Bachelor of Applied Science degree for their accredited undergraduate engineering programs (never the Bachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Science degrees).

In India, the Bachelor of Engineering is a degree awarded by many universities. Bachelor of Engineering degree is awarded to a student who has completed four years course ( eight semesters ) in engineering. The entry to B.E is 10+2 years of schooling or completion of Pre University course( PUC ). Diploma holders in engineering are also eligible for entry into B.E. Diploma holders of engineering enter degree course, by lateral entry which gives some concessions in study of subjects. The B.E degree is awarded by the university in field of engineering in which student has studied for four years
