Instructions for JEE Advanced 2018 exam, which is scheduled to be held on May 20 this year, have been set. JEE Advanced 2018 rules and guidelines have been set basis Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE). According to the initial proposal, JEE Advanced exam will be a Computer Based Test (CBT) for the first time this year.

Candidates will be allowed to occupy their respective seats 30-40 minutes before the start of the examination and will be allowed to log in to read instructions 20 minutes before the test begins. No candidate will be allowed to enter the exam hall after 9:30 AM for the morning session and 2:30 PM for the afternoon session. No candidates will be allowed to leave the seat before the exam ends.
