The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) pattern is unique, and it is designed to assess a candidate’s knowledge about the subjects included in the exam. Candidates can check details about the JEE exam pattern, type of questions, and marking scheme given below.
Paper I: B.E./ B.Tech. in Computer Based Test (CBT) mode:  
1.  Subjectwise distribution of questions, total number of questions, and marks  Subject Mathematics Physics Chemistry  Section A 20* 20* 20*  Section B 10* 10* 10*  Marks 100 100 100 
Total  90  300  
*Every subject has 2 sections. Section A will have Multiple Choice Questions and Section B will have Numerical Value Questions. Applicants will have to answer 5 out of 10 questions in Section B, and there will be no negative marking.  
2.  Marking scheme for MCQs  Correct answer or the best answer Incorrect answer Unanswered/marked for review  Four marks (+4) Minus one mark (1) No mark (0)  
3.  Marking scheme for questions for which answer is a numerical value  Correct answer Incorrect answer Unanswered/marked for review  Four marks (+4) No mark (0) No mark (0)  
4.  Methods to determine the merit  Converting raw scores in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and total into NTA scores NTA scores of all shifts of all days will be merged to prepare the overall merit  
5.  Method to resolve ties  Tie between candidates obtaining equal total NTA scores in Paper 1: B.E./B.Tech will be resolved in the following descending order:
 
Candidates appearing in Paper 2A (B.Arch): Mathematics (Part – I) and Aptitude test (Part – II) in Computer Based Test (CBT) mode only. However, they will have to appear for the Drawing Test (Part – III) in pen and paper mode on a drawing sheet of A4 size.  
1.  Subject wise distribution of questions, total number of questions and marks  Subject Mathematics (Part I) Aptitude Test (Part II) Drawing Test (Part III)  No. of questions 20* 50 02  10*  Marks 100 200 100 
Total  82  400  
*Each subject paper will have 20 Multiple Choice Questions. Applicants have to answer 5 out of 10 Numerical Value questions, and there will be no negative marking.  
2.  (a) Marking scheme for MCQs  Correct answer or the most appropriate answer Incorrect answer/ multiple answer Unanswered/ Marked for review  Four marks (+4) Minus one mark (1) No mark (0)  
(b) Marking scheme for questions for which answer is a numerical value  Correct answer or the most appropriate answer Incorrect answer Unanswered/ Marked for review  Four marks (+4) No mark (0) No mark (0)  
(c) Marking scheme for Drawing Test (Part III)  Two questions to be evaluated out of 100 marks  
3.  Method to determine merit  Converting the raw score in Aptitude Test, Mathematics, and Drawing Test and total into NTA scores Overall merit will be prepared by merging NTA scores of all shift days  
4.  Methods to resolve ties  Tie between candidates obtaining equal total NTA scores in Paper 2A: B. Arch will be resolved in the following manner:
 
Paper 2B [B Planning] Part I: Mathematics, Part II: Aptitude Test and Part III: Planning based questions in Computer Based Test (CBT) mode only  
1.  Subject wise distribution of questions, total number of questions and marks  Subject Part I: Mathematics Part II: Aptitude test Part III: Planning based Objective type MCQs  No of questions 20* 50 25  10*  Marks 100 200 100 
Total  105 400  
*20 MCQs will be there. 5 out of 10 Numerical Value questions need to be answered. No negative marking.  
2.  Marking scheme for MCQs  Correct answer or the most appropriate answer Incorrect answer/ multiple answer Unanswered/ marked for review  Four marks (+4) Minus one mark (1) No mark (0)  
3.  Marking scheme for questions for which answer is numerical value  Correct answer or most appropriate answer Incorrect answer Unanswered / marked for review  Four marks (+4) No mark (0) No mark (0)  
4.  Method of determining the merit  Raw scores in Aptitude Test, Mathematics, Planning Based Test and total are converted into NTA scores NTA scores of all shifts of days will be merged to prepare overall merit  
5  Method of resolving ties  Tie between candidates obtaining equal total NTA scores in B. Planning will be resolved in the following manner:

Important Note for Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs)
Candidates have to choose only one correct answer or the most appropriate answer. However, during the process of challenges of key, a question is found to have more than one correct option, 4 marks will be given for multiple correct options. 1 mark will be deducted for any incorrect option marked, and there will be no marks given for an unanswered question.
