  • The paper will contain 100 multiple choice questions, each carrying 1 mark.
  • Candidates will lose ¼ marks for every incorrect response; no response will yield zero marks.
  • Two hours will be the maximum time given to attempt the question paper.
  • The question will differ for candidates on the basis of their last qualifying examination.
  • Students holding a diploma in engineering/technology are advised to prepare according to the diploma syllabus while B.Sc candidates have only Mathematics as their syllabus.

JELET 2018 is scheduled on June 11, 2018. JELET (Joint Entrance Examination for Lateral Entry) is an entrance exam for aspirants seeking admission into the 2nd year (3rd semester) of an engineering undergraduate course. The exam will be held only in offline mode. Candidates should make sure that they fulfil the eligibility criteria before applying for the examination.
