JEE Advanced 2025: Everything You Need to Know

The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Advanced is one of the most challenging and prestigious entrance exams in India, serving as a gateway for admission to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and a few other top engineering institutes. With each passing year, the exam evolves, incorporating changes to meet educational standards and requirements. This article provides an in-depth overview of JEE Advanced 2025, based on the structure and details outlined in the JEE Advanced 2024 notification.

Structure of JEE Advanced

Examination Format

The JEE Advanced 2025 will continue to follow the format set in previous years, comprising two papers, each of three hours duration. Both papers are compulsory and are designed to test the candidates’ comprehension, reasoning, and analytical abilities.

  • Paper 1: This will include sections on Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. The questions will be objective in nature, including multiple-choice questions (MCQs), numerical answer type (NAT) questions, and questions with multiple correct answers.
  • Paper 2: This paper will also cover Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics, but with a different set of questions to further evaluate the candidates’ depth of understanding and application skills.


The examination will be held on a single day, typically a Sunday, with Paper 1 conducted in the morning session and Paper 2 in the afternoon session. The specific dates and times for JEE Advanced 2025 will be announced on the official JEE Advanced website.

Mode of Examination

The examination will be conducted online as a Computer-Based Test (CBT). This mode ensures a more efficient and secure examination process.
