The JEE is conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for admission to premier institutes such as IIT/NITs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

“Out of 11653 Navodaya students appeared in JEE Main this year, 4360 have qualified to appear in Advance Examination to be held on May 20, 2018,” an official statement said, adding, “Last year, 9757 JNV students appeared in JEE Main examination and 3563 qualified for JEE Advance examination.”
