JEE Advanced Exam Pattern 2023: Types Of Questions

Unlike JEE Main, which consists of Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) (with four options, one of them being correct) and Numerical Answer Type Questions, JEE Advanced questions are of different types. These are as follows:

  1. Questions with Single Correct Answer: These questions come with four options, one of which is correct.
  2. Questions with One or More Correct Answers: These questions have four options, out of which one or even more could be correct. These questions bear partial marks, provided you select one or more correct option(s) and no incorrect option(s).
  3. Questions with Single Digit Integer Answers: These questions do not provide any options. The answer is a single-digit integer number, i.e., positive or negative whole number of single-digit, which candidates have to enter with the virtual keyboard.
  4. Questions with Decimal Answers up to Two Decimal Places: As the name suggests, the answer to this type of question will have a decimal part.

JEE Matrix Match Type Questions

These types of questions come in the form of a matrix, as shown below:

JEE Advanced Exam Pattern

As you can see, there are two columns in this type of question. The contents of Column I are to be matched with that of Column II. These questions are quite difficult as making some errors in one of them can mean losing marks for all the others.

Linked Comprehension Type Questions

In this type, three or more questions can be based on a single problem. This means if you get the basic calculations wrong, you are likely to get all the questions wrong for a particular problem.
