It has been decided to hold a Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) from the year 2013 for admission to the undergraduate programmes in Engineering in two parts, JEE-MAIN and JEE-ADVANCED. Only the top 150000 candidates based on performance in JEE MAIN will qualify to appear in the JEE ADVANCED examination.

Admissions to IITs will be based only on category-wise All India Rank (AIR) in JEE ADVANCED, subject to condition that such candidates are in the top 20 percentile (category wise) in their respective Boards/Qualifying Examinations.

Admission to NITs will be based on 40% weightage for performance in Class XII board/ equivalent examination marks (normalized) and the remainder 60% weightage would be given to performance in JEE Main and a combined All India Rank (AIR) would be decided accordingly.
The policy could also be adopted by other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs) and participating Institutions.

In case any State opts to admit students in the engineering Colleges affiliated to state Universities and requires separate merit list to be provided based on relative weightages adopted by the states, the merit list shall be prepared with such relative weightages as may be indicated by States. For such participating states, the examination will be conducted in the Regional Languages of the State(s) on request.
