IIT JEE 2005
From the year 2000, a reform has been introduced in the existing scheme of the examination. IIT-JEE will henceforth be conducted in two phases. Only those who qualify in the first phase, aptly termed the Screening Test, will be allowed to appear for the subsequent Main Examination. It is mandatory for candidates desiring to join B.Arch. and B.Design to qualify in a two-hour aptitude test at the counseling institutes. Separate merit lists of candidates belonging to the General and SC/ST categories are prepared. No waiting or extended list is prepared. There are independent cut-offs for each subject and also for the aggregate. The choice of examination centers and the IIT zone in no way influence allotment of the Institute and the course to be pursued.
