The 2020 JEE Advanced will be organised by IIT Delhi. Students who clear this examination will be eligible for admission in 23 IITs across the country. It will be conducted on Sunday, 17 May 2020. For the first time in history, the JEE will be held in the United States as well. The examination centre is to be set up in San Francisco.

Prof V Ramgopal Rao, Director of IIT Delhi said, ‘JEE Advanced is an examination conducted by IITs for admission to IITs. IITs have taken a conscious decision to encourage cultural diversity on their campuses. JEE exam is now conducted in five countries worldwide and we have added the USA to this list. The US has benefited significantly by the presence of a large number of IIT alumni there and there is considerable awareness in the US about IITs. Conducting JEE in the Bay Area is a logical thing to do.’

The IIT Joint Entrance Admission Board (JAB) has decided to shortlist 2.5 lakh students from JEE (Main) 2020 to appear for the Advanced entrance examination.

According to sources, the first paper of JEE Advanced will be conducted from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon (IST), and the second paper from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. (IST) on 17 May 2020.
