JEE Mains 2016  Exam Pattern
Exam Paper Type : Both Online and Pen & Paper 
JEE Mains comprises of two papers:

The candidates seeking for the B.Tech/B.E must avail the paper 1 and the candidates seeking for the B.Arch/B.Planning must avail the paper 2.
JEE Mains paper 1:
 The Test Booklet consists of 90 questions. The maximum marks are 360.
 The JEE Mains is of 3 hours duration.
 There are three parts in the JEE Mains question paper A, B, C consisting of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics having 30 questions in each part of equal weightage. Each question is allotted 4 (four) marks for correct response.
 Candidates will be awarded marks for correct response of each question. 1⁄4 (onefourth) marks of the total marks allotted to the question (i.e. 1 mark) will be deducted for indicating incorrect response of each question.
 No deduction from the total score will be made if no response is indicated for an item in the answer sheet
