JEE Main serves as the first tear of Joint Entrance Examination. The score of the JEE Main will decide the admissions to the B.Tech, B.E or B.Arch courses in NITs, IIITs, CFTIs, and Institutions funded by the participating State Governments.

Although these two examinations are connected in a step format, these two are conducted by different examination authorities. Before 2019, the JEE Main was conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). Later on from 2019 onwards, the responsibility of conducting JEE Main was shifted to the newly formed NTA, the National Testing Agency. As usual, the JEE Advanced is being conducted under the supervision of the Joint Admission Board (JAB). It is done by one of the 7 zonal IITs every year on a rotational basis.

Now there are two papers in JEE Main for engineering (B.E/B.Tech) and architecture (B.Arch/B.Planning) courses respectively. That is Paper 1 for B.E or B.Tech and Paper 2 for B.Arch or B.Planning. Therefore, the students who wish to pursue Engineering or Architecture courses can appear in their respective papers.
