Those aspiring to study in premier engineering institutes like the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) and National Institute of Technology (NIT) will have to shell out more for appearing in the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE)-2013 as JEE Mains and JEE Advance forms will have to be to filled up separately. This would mean spending more money than last year when only one form was filled. From 2013, the JEE will be held in two parts, Mains and Advance and only those who qualify the Mains will be allowed to appear in the Advance exam.

Candidates of the General and OBC categories will have to spend Rs 800 for the Mains form while Schedule Caste/Schedule Tribe (SC/ST) candidates will have to pay Rs 400 for the same purpose.

The JEE Advance forms will be available for Rs 1,800 for General and OBC category students and SC/ST students will have to pay Rs 1,000. Registration by girl candidates would be completely free. After filling the form online, candidates can get a print-out, attach a demand draft of Rs 800/400 and send it to CBSE Head Office In Delhi.

According to the IIT-Kanpur authorities, the JEE Mains form will be available from November 8 to be filled online. The process will continue till December 15.

Earlier, the forms had to be filled from November 1 but as preparations for the same were not complete, the date was postponed for a week.

The JEE Mains will be held for the first time. Therefore, the facility of filling exam form online has been provided to the candidates. The JEE Mains is being conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in 2013. The draft has to be in the name of Secretary, CBSE New Delhi. JEE Mains would be held on April 7 and results declared in May. The top 1.5 lakh students qualifying the JEE Mains will only be able to appear in JEE Advance. Only successful candidates will be required to fill JEE Advance form. The exam would be conducted by all IITs and spearheaded by IIT-Delhi.

JEE Mains Form Available From November 8, To Be Filled Online

General candidates will have to be in the top 75,750 candidates in the Joint Entrance Exam-Main (JEE-Main) overall merit list to make it for the second-stage exam for entry to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) next year. The remaining candidates will be drawn from reserved category merit lists. A new notification has been issued by the IITs. 
Totally, 1.5 lakh candidates who crack the JEE-Main will be able to sit for the JEE-Advanced; the two-step format introduced from 2013. The top 75,750 (which may include reserved candidates) will be eligible for the next exam.
Of the rest, 40,500 will be the top OBC (Non Creamy layer) candidates, 22,500 Scheduled Caste and 11,250 Scheduled Tribe candidates. "The logical thing to do was to shortlist candidates in proportion to seats allotted at the IITs."
