The Joint Entrance Examination,JEE(Main) comprises two papers. Paper1 is conducted for admission to Undergraduate Engineering Programs (B.E/B.Tech.) at NITs, IIITs, other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions(CFTIs), and Institutions/Universities funded/recognized by participating State Governments. JEE (Main) is also an eligibility test for JEE (Advanced), which is conducted for admission to IITs. Paper 2 is conducted for admission to B. Arch and B. Planningcourses in the country.
JEE(Main)2023 will be conducted in the following modes:
Paper1(B.E./B.Tech.) in "Computer Based Test(CBT)" mode only.
Paper 2A (B. Arch): Mathematics (PartI) and Aptitude Test (PartII) in "Computer Based Test(CBT)" mode only and Drawing Test(PartIII) in pen and paper(offline) mode,to be attempted on drawing sheet of A4 size.
Paper 2B(B.Planning): Mathematics(PartI), Aptitude Test(PartII), and PlanningBased Questions(PartIII) in ComputerBased Test(CBT) mode only.
Subject combinations for each paper, type of questions in each paper,and mode of examination are given in the table below:

*Each Subject will have two sections. Section A will be of MultipleChoice Questions (MCQs) and Section B will contain Questions whose answers are to be filled in as a numerical value. In Section B, candidates have to attempt any 05 (five) questions out of 10. There will be negative marking for both Section A and Section B. For each question in Section B, a candidate has to enter the correct integer value of the answer using the mouse and the onscreen virtual numeric keypad in the place designated to enter the answer. For Section B, the answer should be rounded off to the nearest integer.

The details of the syllabus are given on the website: https://jeemain.nta.nic.in/.
Moreover, to cater to the decision of different Boards across the country regarding the reduction in the syllabus, the NTA has decided to provide a choice in one Section of each Subject of Paper 1 and Part I of Paper 2A and 2B. However, the total number of questions to be attempted will remain the same (Physics 25, Chemistry – 25, and Mathematics – 25), wherever applicable.
