JEE Main 2023 has been scheduled to take place in the month of  January and April 2023. A new change has been introduced by NTA this year in the exam pattern of JEE Main 2023. As per the new pattern, the questions that have numerical value answers (for section B) will have a negative marking. 


As per the standardised JEE Main 2023 exam pattern, candidates had the option to appear for two papers. While Paper I is compulsory for everyone, for those aspiring to pursue a B.Arch degree, qualifying Paper II is a necessary requisite.


Understanding the JEE Main exam pattern is quite essential for successful preparation. So students willing to take the exam must understand the JEE Main exam pattern clearly. JEE Main 2023 will be held in two shifts– morning and evening. It will consist of three papers.

  • Paper 1: B.E/B.Tech

  • Paper 2A: B.Arch

  • Paper 2B: B.Planning


While the exam design was modified in 2019, the National Testing Agency (NTA) has made additional changes for the upcoming JEE Main exam in 2023.
