JEE will have two parts — main and advance. But admission to engineering courses in state-affiliated colleges would be granted only on the basis of marks obtained in the mains.

While deciding the weightage of the standard 12 exam score,only marks obtained in physics-chemistry- mathematics would be considered,though a student must secure 50 per cent aggregate.

State officials said the advantage of becoming a part of the JEE admission system was that students would have to take only one entrance for IITs too. This would particularly help students in rural areas,they said.
