TwoTier Admission Process
The Joint Entrance Examination for admission to the undergraduate programmes in engineering is conducted in two parts:
JEE ADMISSION PROCEDURE
This two tier common test for IITs (Indian Institutes of Technology), NITs (National Institutes of Technology) and IIITs (Indian Institutes of Information Technology) has replaced earlier IITJEE and AIEEE from 2013. A composite score is calculated from JEEMain performance and your class XII (or equivalent exam) marks This score is considered for initial screening.
Weightage to Class XII Board Marks
Now, weightage is also given for the XII board or equivalent marks, though the percentage of weightage varies with the types of Institutes. The board marks are normalized on percentile basis through an appropriate formula.
Admission Process for IITs
For initial screening, a composite score is calculated with 40% weightage to class XII Board or equivalent marks and the remaining 60% weightage to JEE Main performance. Based on this composite score, a fixed number of candidates (1,50,000 candidates) are considered eligible for admission. These shortlisted candidates are then ranked in the order of merit entirely based on their performance in the JEE Advanced examination. It is essential for you to gfet 75% marks or figure in the top 20 percentile bracket of your respective Class XII Boards, whichever is lower.
Admission Process for Other Institutes
If you are aspiring to get admission to NITs and other institutes only, then you need to give only JEE Main exam. There is 40% weightage for performance in Class XII Board marks normalized on percentile basis and 60% weightage for performance in JEE Main

Chemistry is one such subject which can assure you guaranteed marks in IIT JEE if you have
prepared well. Most of the topics in chemistry are not very much twisted and get tested directly.
For example most of the students do not pay much attention to topics like: s, p, d blocks,
transition elements, surface chemistry, coordination compounds, gaseous state, nuclear chemistry,
chemical equilibrium and stereochemistry. These topics are not only easy but do get questions in
IIT JEE Chemistry papers every year and hence are very scoring but still students do neglect them.
Scoring in Chemistry is more about planning than about application and understanding of
Certain topics like organic chemistry are pretty much like mathematics and physics as far as IIT
JEE is concerned as it relies on testing of concepts and questions are always framed considering
multiple concepts together. Unlike organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry is directly opposite as
all questions asked are always direct and do not need much application. Topics like stoichiometry
are always difficult to handle and need lot of in depth knowledge about reactions and mole
It is very much advisable to solve past 10 years(Minimum) IIT JEE papers for chemistry. Most of
the questions are repeated in an indirect manner. This is true for inorganic and organic chemistry
than physical chemistry because in physical chemistry lot of concept testing is involved. When you
solve problems from past years IIT JEE papers of Chemistry, you would see a pattern in which
questions / concepts are tested. In fact with a proper planning you can make chemistry as the most
scoring subject out of all three in IIT JEE.
Physical Chemistry is the branch of chemistry which is quite like mathematics and physics in
developing underlying principles of chemistry. It observes and explains the physical and chemical
properties of matter. Physical chemistry at IIT JEE level starts from basics of mole concept,
quantities at atomic level and covers energy, thermodynamics and kinetics which forms the basis
of how reactions occur. Various topics covered in physical chemistry such as stoichiometry,
chemical equilibrium, concentration of solutions, atomic structure, thermodynamics or chemical
energetic form the backbone of chemistry at IIT JEE level and higher chemistry at graduate and
post graduate level.
Physical chemistry has at least 30 - 40% weightage in the IIT JEE chemistry paper and hence it is
most important of the trio – physical, organic and inorganic chemistry.
Topics covered under IIT JEE physical chemistry are:
(I) Mole Concept
(II) Redox Reactions
Gaseous and Liquid states
States of Matter
Solutions & collegative properties
Organic Chemistry is the branch of chemistry which deals mostly with the objects in life.
Though, it is not quite mathematical in nature, but the basics of Thermodynamics and
Kinetics are still the underlying principles. It observes and explains the chemistry in life.
Although Organic Chemistry in itself is quite vast but at IIT JEE level it deals with General
Organic Chemistry. It starts with the concept of Hybridization, IUPAC Nomenclature,
Isomerism, Resonance, Hyperconjugation, etc. Stereoisomerism is a critical part which
becomes a bottleneck for most of the students. These concepts are used in almost every
reaction mechanisms which are a part of topics like Hydrocarbons, Halides, Alcohols &
Phenols, Aldehydes & Ketones, Carboxylic acids and derivatives. Named Reactions are like
drivers direction for students and maximum come from the chapter of Aldehydes & Ketones,
which is no less than a climax of a movie.
Organic chemistry has at least 30 - 40% weightage in the IIT JEE chemistry paper. It is the
most critical part of chemistry where scoring is important to occupy a high berth in AIR of
Topics covered under IIT JEE Organic chemistry are:
Alkenes and alkynes
Reactions of benzene
Alcohols and ethers
Aldehydes and Ketones
Carboxylic acid and their derivatives
Carbohydrates, amino acids and peptides.
Uses of some important polymers.
Inorganic Chemistry is the branch of chemistry which deals with the chemical changes in
most primitive manner. It is not mathematical in nature and deals in elemental form of
nature. The Mendeleev’s Periodic Table becomes the basis of study as we divide the
elements according to their groups and then study them. These groups are regrouped as s-
block, pblock, dblock and fblock elements. In these pblock is not the bulkiest but also the
most important part. The order of importance is followed by sblock elements. The chapter of
Coordination Compounds is also important from the scoring point of view. The other
chapters of Analytical Chemistry and Extraction of Elements also fetch few questions which
are direct in nature.
Inorganic chemistry has at least 25 - 30% weightage in the IIT JEE chemistry paper.
However, if we talk about the effort to scoring ratio from IIT JEE perspective then it is the
least in this case. A good student cannot afford to ignore this section.
Topics covered under IIT JEE Inorganic chemistry are:
Extraction of elements
S and P Block Elements
d and fBlock elements
Coordination compounds & organometallics
