Another major change introduced for JEE Advanced 2020 is the increase in number of takers. Earlier, top 2,40,000 candidates from JEE Main were deemed eligible for appearing in the JEE Advanced exam. This number has been increased by 10,000, i.e. next year 2,50,000 students (including all categories) from JEE (Main) 2020 will be shortlisted to appear in JEE Advanced exam.
On May 17, 2020, the first paper of JEE (Advanced) will start at 9.00 a.m. and end at 12 noon (IST). The second paper will be conducted from 2.30 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. (IST).
For promoting IITs as global education destinations, the IIT Council has recently decided to exempt foreign students from taking the JEE mains exam, which is the screening exam for selection to JEE Advanced. With this foreign students may now appear for the JEE advanced directly.
The National Testing Agency (NTA) organises JEE (Main) while one of the IITs organises JEE (Advanced) under the guidance of IIT JAB.
