New Delhi: The entrance examination to get into the coveted Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) has always been considered tough. Now with a revised syllabus for the Joint Entrance Examination (Advanced) or JEE (Advanced), admissions to the 23 IITs would get even tougher from the year 2023 onwards.
Only 41,862 candidates out of the 1,41,699 who appeared for both the papers of the JEE (Advanced) in 2021 had qualified as the results were announced in October.
The Joint Admission Body (JAB) decided to introduce a revised syllabus for the top entrance exam from 2023. The revised syllabus has been published for the students to start preparing.
JEE Advanced is one of the most difficult exams in India. About 2.5 lakh candidates who secure top ranks in JEE (Main), which is the common engineering entrance test, are qualified to write JEE (Advanced).
The authorities said that the syllabus of only the JEE (Advanced) has been revised. It is not applicable for the JEE-Mains. The application process of next year’s JEE (Main) is likely to begin in the first week of January 2022. The exam would be held in four phases.
