Latest Trend of IIT JEE Exams
Currently, many state boards and institutions, including IITs conduct at least 150 entrance exams every year.

“A senior IIT official said having a subjective test for IITs’ entrance exam will require more time to evaluate the answer sheets and it may lead to delay in the academic session across IITs.” So they decided that in order to conduct a subjective test for JEE-Advanced, the center will have to conduct the JEE-Main exam. The aspirant who clears this exam will be called for the JEE advanced exam.
As per the new pattern, IIT-JEE would be based on the aptitude based test, including questions based on reasoning and the subject questions. In the process of JEE preparation students should study all the subjects at their schooling level like Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry. The students will have to crack this aptitude test to get their eligibility for the JEE advanced exams.

A source said that the IIT Joint Admission Board (JAB) maintained the status quo as the issue was being legally challenged.
