Eligibility for Admission to Other Institutions
The above-mentioned policy could also be adopted by other Technical Institutions participating in counselling through JoSAA/CSAB. In case a State opts to admit students in the engineering Colleges affiliated to state Universities, the State may prepare separate rank list based on criteria decided by them.
Number of seats in various Institutions
The JEE (Main) secretariat/CBSE is only an examination conducting body. After the declaration of result, the data is handed over to SEAT ALLOCATION BOARD or the concerned state government/institute for Seat Allocation Process and admission procedure. The JEE (Main) secretariat does not collect the information regarding a total number of seats available in the institutions and reservation criteria followed by the institutions. For all admission related procedures/queries, the candidates are advised to refer the website of JoSAA, Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB) or the concerned state government/institute after a declaration of ranks of JEE (Main)– 2017.The letter/e-mails regarding admission related procedures/queries will not be entertained by JEE (Main) secretariat /CBSE.
Reservation of seats
As per Government of India rules candidates belonging to certain categories are admitted to seats reserved for them based on relaxed criteria.These categories are:
I. Other Backwards Classes (OBC) if they belong to Non-Creamy Layer (NCL)
II. Scheduled Castes (SC)
III. Scheduled Tribes (ST)
IV. Persons with Disability (PwD)with 40% or more disability
The benefit of reservation for admission to NITs/IIITs and CFTIs shall be given only to those classes/castes/tribes which are in the respective central list published by the Govt of India. For admission to State Engineering colleges who have opted for admission through JEE(Main)-2017, the reservation rules of that state shall apply.The letter/e-mails regarding reservation criteria will not be entertained by JEE (Main) secretariat/CBSE.
Seat Allocation Process and Admission Procedure
Candidates shall be offered admission based on their choices and All India Ranks of JEE (Main)-2017 through a Seat Allocation Process to be announced later.The candidates will be able to make their choices online for branches/programmes and institutes at an appropriate time.
The verification of documents would be done at the time of Seat Allocation Process/admission. The purpose would be to verify different records regarding identification, age, qualifying examination, the state of eligibility, category and disability (if any) of the candidate. On failing to produce any of the authentic documents, the candidate will not be considered for admission.
SC, ST, OBC and PwD candidates will be required to produce original certificate issued by the competent authority at the time of Seat Allocation Process as well as at the time of admission, failing which they will not be considered for admission.

How to Prepare for JEE Main?
- Students must give equal weight age to all the subjects, prepare a time table and follow it properly. Remember it is the quality of time spent and not the quantity alone.
- Hence, take short breaks of 5 to 10 minutes after every one or two hours of regular study.
- Relax completely when you take a break. The overnight study is not advised and one should sleep for at least five to six hours at night.
- Refer fewer books for theory, at present many preparation books are available in the market for JEE Main and cause a lot of confusion to students about which books should be chosen for preparation.
- It is advised to avoid the study material which is having repeated questions based on the same concept.
- Only solving NCERT books may not be sufficient to crack conceptual problems asked in the entrance exam but surely NCERT physics and chemistry books will give you the required basic concepts
- Focus on solving the problems on your own, do not look for the solutions without attempting a question. Start with conventional methods of solving, while gradually improving. In short, build your own shortcuts and ways for problem solving
- Practice of JEE level questions is necessary as it improves your reasoning and analytical ability
- Apart from studying books, students should also concentrate on the previous years question papers of JEE Main. It will help you to manage your time in the examination. By solving these papers, students will get an idea of exam pattern, question weightage
- JEE (Main) is not difficult, but tricky. Many students fail to score in actual JEE due to lack of planning on how to write the exam. Once the revision of all topics is done, students should schedule at least one mock exam per week. First 15 minutes of the exam need to be used for reading the instructions, question paper.
- For solving of questions from each subject restricted for 45 minutes, since subject-wise cut-off is not there in JEE main, spend last 30 minutes for the subject which is easy in that particular paper. Speed and accuracy are important aspects, this will come with extensive practice of mock papers
- The most important thing is clarity of concepts and regular practice in problem solving. Both speed and strike rate matter. You need to be quick and accurate to achieve high scores. High speed with less accuracy can actually ruin your results
- Try the shortest approach to MCQ/elimination method. Do not get tensed by comparing your performance with others, you need to compare your present performance with past performance.
