The IIT Kharagpur will release the JEE Advanced exam pattern 2021. Those who are preparing for the JEE Advanced 2021 must be well aware of the test pattern of the exam. Each year’s pattern of exam pattern is revised. Through the JEE Advanced Test Pattern 2021, students will give an idea about the no. of questions, marking scheme, etc. The exam will take place in an online mode for the two papers i.e Paper I and Paper-II. Both papers are compulsory. Each paper will take place for 3 hrs duration on the same day. Paper, I will be conducted from 9 am to 12 pm & Paper-2 will take place from 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm. Three subjects are taken into account for the exam i.e Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics. There is a provision of the negative marking for the wrong answer.
