A student gaining a rank amongst the top 1.5 lakh in the JEE-Main 2014 can give JEE-Advanced in the year 2014 and 2015, before having to retake the JEE Mains examination. The two-year validity of the JEE Main ranks gives an extra chance to IIT aspirants to secure admission in their desired college. If they do not clear JEE Advanced 2014, they can directly attempt JEE Advanced 2015. However, the two-year validity is applicable only for two consecutive years, according to which a candidate qualifying JEE Main 2014 cannot attempt JEE Advanced 2016 without retaking the JEE Main exam.
The JEE Advanced 2014 will be conducted on May 25, 2014. The exam consists of Multiple Choice Questions divided into three subjects : Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.
