What is The Difference Between JEE Main and JEE Advanced

Exam Tips JEE MAIN

JEE is very important because it will open up lot of career options for you.You will have a brand tag of IIT associated with you always throughout your life . So you will feel good about yourself.  are very good.they recruit faculty from IIT,NIT,IIM, and other reputed colleges to teach for the respective exams. Several government-funded technical institutions such as NITs and IITs conduct JEE-Main while JEE-Advanced is conducted by IITs. So, understandably, it’s important to take JEE-Advanced for admission to technical courses in IITs.

JEE-Main and Advanced are interrelated and different at the same time. Scores obtained by students in JEE-Main play an important role in seeking admission to 4 year science and engineering degree courses of institutions like NITs, IIITs and other national level colleges in India. Only candidates who qualify JEE-Main can take JEE-Advanced. Those successful in Advanced are then entitled to gain admission into first semester degree programs offered by IITs.

Major differences between JEE-Main and JEE-Advanced include:

**Topics Included in JEE Advanced and not in JEE Main





Thermal Physics – Newton’s law of cooling; Blackbody radiation; Absorptive and Emissive powers; Kirchoff’s law; Wein’s Displacement Law; Stefan’s Law.


Electrochemistry: Equivalent Conductivity

Nuclear Chemistry: Radioactivity; Properties of alpha, beta and gamma rays; Kinetics of radioactive decay (decay series excluded), carbon dating; Stability of nuclei with respect to proton-neutron ratio; Brief discussion on fission and fusion reactions.

**Topics Included in JEE Main and not in JEE Advanced





Electronic Devices – Semiconductors; semiconductor diode: I-V characteristics in forward and reverse bias; diodes as a rectifier; I-V characteristics of LED, photodiode, solar cell and diode; Zener diode as a voltage regulator. Junction transistor, transistor action, characteristics of a transistor; transistor as an amplifier (common emitter configuration) and Oscillator. Logic gates (OR, AND, NOT, NAND and NOR). The transistor as a switch.

Electromagnetic Waves – Electromagnetic waves; Characteristics of Electromagnetic Waves; Transverse nature of electromagnetic waves; Electromagnetic spectrum; Applications of Electromagnetic waves

Communication Systems – Electromagnetic waves’ propagation; Amplitude and Frequency Modulation; Bandwidth of signals & transmission medium; Basic elements of a Communication System (Block Diagram only).


Biomolecules: Vitamins – Classification and functions; Nucleic acids – Chemical constitution of DNA and RNA

Chemistry in Everyday Life: Chemicals in medicines – Analgesics, tranquilizers, antiseptics, disinfectants, antimicrobials, antifertility drugs, antibiotics, antacids, antihistamins – their meaning and common examples.

Chemicals in food – Preservatives, artificial sweetening agents – common examples.

Cleansing agents – Soaps and detergents, cleansing action


Sets, Relations and Functions: Sets and their representation; Union, intersection and complement of sets and their algebraic properties; power set; relation, Types of relations, equivalence relations

Statistics and Probability: Measures of Dispersion; calculation of mean, median. Mode of grouped and ungrouped data calculation of standard deviation, variance and mean deviation for grouped and ungrouped data.

Trigonometry: Heights and Distances

Mathematical Reasoning: Statements, logical operations and, or, implies, implied by, if and only if. Understanding of tautology, contradiction, converse and contra positive.

*Any candidate who meets eligibility criteria can take JEE-Main. However, only top 1.5 lakh candidates in JEE-Main can take JEE-Advanced.

*IITs and ISM Dhanbad pick up candidates on the basis of All India Rank (AIR) in JEE-Advanced. These candidates must feature in the top 20 percentile of Boards in respective categories.

*JEE-Main and Advanced are held in two parts—Paper 1and paper 2.

*The paper 1 of JEE Main has multiple choice questions in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics while the paper 1 of JEE-Advanced has objective type questions from the same subjects.

*Candidates can take the paper 1 of JEE-Main as a pen-paper test or an online test. However, JEE-Advanced does not offer any such option. Both the papers of JEE Advanced shall be paper based tests.

*paper 2 of JEE-Main is taken by students only for admission to B.Arch B.Plan program. While those interested in pursuing Architecture and Design courses in an IIT shall be required to sit for the Design Aptitude Test in a zonal IIT sometime later.

*A candidate can take JEE-Main only thrice in his/her lifetime.

*A candidate can attempt JEE-Advanced a maximum of two times in consecutive years.

These all differences can help you all to distinguish between JEE Main and JEE Advance so hope you secure good results in the exams.

best of luck for your exams……
