What is the marking scheme in the JEE Advanced 2023?

The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Advanced is a competitive engineering entrance examination conducted annually in India. It is the second stage of the two-tier JEE examination, and it is conducted by the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) for admission to their undergraduate engineering programs.

The JEE Advanced marking scheme consists of two papers: Paper 1 and Paper 2. Each paper is three hours duration and consists of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) and numerical answer type (NAT) questions.

The marking scheme for the JEE Advanced examination is as follows:

  • For each correct MCQ, a candidate will be awarded 4 marks.
  • For each incorrect MCQ, 1 mark will be deducted.
  • For each correct NAT, a candidate will be awarded 4 marks.
  • There is no negative marking for incorrect NAT questions.

The total marks for each paper are thus, a maximum of 372 marks (186 questions x 4 marks each). The total marks for the JEE Advanced examination is therefore 744 marks (372 marks x 2 papers).
