There are two question papers (1st paper 1 and 2nd paper) for JEE (Advanced), with three hours of duration for each paper. The question papers for both the papers are in Hindi as well as in English language. (The choice of language must be mentioned during the time of registration). There are three sections of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics in both the question papers.

The candidate's analytical ability, reasoning and comprehension are checked through objective type questions. Incorrect answers result in negative marking in some sections. The candidates are required to mark the on a separate carbon paper of two sheets. It is to be noted that, the candidates must not separate the alignment of both the sheets (upper and lower) during the examination. They must use a black ball pen to mark the answers on the upper sheet (ORS or Optical Response Sheet) and should mark in such a manner that its impression is seen on the lower sheet. Hence, after the exam the candidates can take away the lower sheet with them.
