JEE Advanced is used as the basis for admission into Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad (which is now getting converted into an IIT). Only candidates who are within the top 1, 50, 000 ranks of the JEE Main are allowed to write the JEE Advanced. Candidates who clear the JEE Advanced are accepted into IITs. Colleges such as Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research (IISERs), Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology (RGIPT), Indian Institute of Science (IISC), Bangalore etc use the scores of JEE Advanced for admission into them. However, none of these institutions are part of the central counselling for IIT JEE Advanced.

Rules and regulations

Students who take admission in the IITs are not eligible to appear for the JEE Advanced in the next year but this is not applicable to institutions such as IISER, RGIPT and other institutions that are not part of the central counselling for IITs. Students who have already received the All India Ranks (AIRs) and wish to pursue Architecture or Design need to appear for an Architecture Aptitude Test (AAT) and qualify for admission into institutions.

Extra note

JEE Advanced is considered to be one of the toughest exams in the engineering world. It tests not just the textbook knowledge of a student, but the concept clarity through engaging and application based questions. It also checks the ability of the student to be able to draw connections between different theories and concepts and use them to solve the given questions. Hence, a student must focus on understanding the material well as well as the practical aspect of it.
