AKTU to cancel UPSEE from 2021; Admissions to be based on the JEE Main score:

This year is the last time when AKTU will conduct its entrance test Uttar Pradesh State Entrance Exam (UPSEE). AKTU will consider JEE Main score from 2021 for admission to colleges in the state.

From next year, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU), Lucknow, will not conduct the Uttar Pradesh State Entrance Examination (UPSEE) for BTech aspirants. Instead, the exam authority will use the scores of the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA).

The marks scored by the candidates in the JEE Main will be considered to fill approximately 1.40 lakh seats in around 750 colleges across the state. At present, UP students are meant to appear individually for two different exams i.e. JEE Main and UPSEE. It will help candidates not to prepare separately for the two exams.

Time-saving step

This year UPSEE is likely to take place on May 10 while admission form will be tentatively made available from the last week of January. It will not be implemented for the year 2020 as the State Government wants students to have some time for preparing better for the JEE Main in 2021.

Students looking to get admission in India’s primary engineering colleges including IITs, NITs, IIITs need to appear for JEE Main. The JEE exam takes place at two levels, JEE Main which is conducted twice in a year (January and April) and JEE Advanced. JEE Main for January attempt has been successfully conducted between January 6-9, 2020. The two exams in a year help students who did not fare well in the January examination and get another chance to improve their marks.

Few states and colleges across India already consider the JEE Main score to fill their engineering seats. Presently, the JEE Main is conducted to determine the eligibility of candidates for admission to National Institutes for Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes for Technology (IITs) and other centrally-funded technical institutions.

JEE Advanced Important Dates and Syllabus

About JEE Advanced

Joint Entrance Examination – Advanced (JEE-Advanced), formerly the Indian Institutes of Technology-Joint Entrance Examination (IIT-JEE), is an academic examination held annually in India. It is conducted by one of the seven zonal IITs (IIT Roorkee, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur, IIT Bombay, IIT Madras, and IIT Guwahati) under guidance of the Joint Admission Board (JAB). It is the sole prerequisite for admission in the Indian Institutes of Technology. Other universities like the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISERs), and the Indian Institute of Science also uses the score obtained in JEE Advanced as the basis for admission. Any student who was admitted to IIT cannot appear for the JEE-Advanced, but the same is not the case with IISc, IISER, RGIPT and other institutes, because these institutes only use JEE-Advanced scores as a criterion for admission. The examination is organised each year by one of the IIT, on a round robin rotation pattern. It has a very low qualification rate (about 9,369 in 479,651 in 2012; ~1.95%) The qualification rate of the JEE-Advanced in 2017 was approximately 0.92% (about 11,000 out of 1,200,000 who applied for JEE Main).


In 2013 the examination, originally called the IIT-JEE, was renamed as JEE (Advanced), and the AIEEE was renamed JEE (Main). From 2017, IIT began conducting JEE internationally for the admission of foreign residents.


About JEE Advanced 2020

JEE Advanced 2020 Exam Date has been released. The examination will be conducted on 17th May 2020 by IIT, Delhi.


New Changes Introduced This Year:

·       The exam will be held in five countries & USA is added in this list.

·       Paper timings has been changed. Paper 1 will be conducted from 9:00 AM to 12:00 Noon and Paper 2 will be conducted from 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM.
