IIT-JEE and AIEEE —the gateways to India’s top engineering colleges including the IITs and NITs— is all set to be replaced by a brand new test to be called as ISEET – Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test for admission into academic year 2013-2014. ISEET will have two papers JEE (Main) and JEE (Advance). Only the top1,50,000 candidates who qualify in Paper – I of JEE (Main) – are eligible to appear in JEE (Advanced).

In JEE (Advanced) – 2013, there will be two question papers Paper-I and Paper-II, each of three hours duration. The question papers will be bilingual (in English and Hindi). Each of the question papers will consist of three separate sections on Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. The questions will be of objective type, designed to test comprehension, reasoning and analytical ability of candidates. In some sections, incorrect answers will be awarded negative marks.
Distribution of top 1,50,000 candidates across various categories will be in the following manner:
Top 75750 (50.5 %) Common Merit List
Top 40500 (27%) Other Backward Classes-
