JEE Advanced Exam Pattern (2018)

Exam pattern for JEE Advanced 2018 will be conducted for 2 papers – Paper I and Paper II. It is mandatory for candidates to appear in both the papers. Both Paper I and Paper II contains questions from Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. It is a computer-based test, where students will be allotted 3 hours each papers. The marks are awarded on the basis of full, partial, zero and negative marks. The questions will be multiple choice, objective type and numerical in nature. During the exam, candidates are required to darken the bubbles corresponding to the correct answers given in the options in the answer booklet.
