Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is one of the most important entrance exams for engineering aspirants. There are two phases of JEE i.e., JEE Main and JEE Advanced.

JEE Main 2018 is scheduled to be held on April 8 in offline mode while the online exam will be conducted on April 15 and 16 under the supervision of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

This year Joint Admission Board (JAB) has decided to conduct JEE Advanced exam through online mode only. Earlier, students have to appear for JEE Advanced exam through offline mode which is also known as OMR based or pen-paper based.

According to most of the students offline mode of examination is better than online mode. In offline mode, students can go through the entire question paper and based on that they can decide how and when to attempt the questions as per their convenience. The only drawback of offline mode is that students can’t change their option as they have to darken the bubble on the OMR sheet using Black Ball Point pen.

After securing the rank among top 224000 students in JEE Main 2018, students can appear for JEE Advanced 2018 via online mode only. Now, it is very important for students to get familiar with the online mode before appearing for the actual exam.
