Those who wish to excel their career in Engineering and looking forward for joining IIT, NIT and some other colleges required to participate in AIEEE 2018 examination. This examination is also known as JEE Main 2018. Interested candidates need to appear in the examination by filling the application form via official link and start with the preparation soon. Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is an engineering entrance examination conducted for admission to various engineering colleges in India. It is constituted by two different examinations – JEE Main and the JEE Advanced. The exams are of the objective pattern. In 2012, the government-run Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) that earlier conducted the AIEEE, announced the JEE that replaced the AIEEE and IIT-JEE. The JEE-Main, which replaces AIEEE, is for admission to the National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs), and some other colleges designated as “centrally funded technical institutes” (CFTIs) The JEE-Advanced, which replaces IIT-JEE, is for admission to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). Only the students selected in JEE Mains are eligible for appearing in JEE Advanced. About 220,000 students are selected each year. There are some institutes like the Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research (IISERs), Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology, and the Indian Institute of Science which use the score obtained in JEE Advanced as the basis for admission. These are not participating institutes of central IIT JEE Advanced counselling of which all IITs are members. Any student who takes admission to IITs cannot appear for the JEE-Advanced exam in the next year, but the same is not the case with IISc, IISER, RGIPT and other institutes as these institutes only use JEE Advanced score for admission.
Some changes in Year 2018: There are some changes in the AIEEE 2018-19 examination. Because this time,there will be 40% weightage that will give to board marks and 60% to the JEE main score. This is so for admission to NIT (National Institute of Technology). However, year 2018 has brought some changes which leads to the admission to NIT based on the main scores in JEE Main scores. Recently the government-appointed panel recommended for dividing of the weightage given to the marks attained in board exam.
