The primary need for conducting this examination is to make the best and deserving students get admitted into various under-graduate engineering and architecture courses. Candidates (Students) who perform well and secure a good AIEEE score get admissions into various educational institutions like NITs and few of the IIITs in India. The admission is purely based on merit (AIEEE score). Every student who appears for this exam is given an All India Rank (AIR) as well as the State Level Rank (SR).

AIEEE exam has two papers. One for the B.Tech stream and the second for the B.Arch. stream. A student can select a single paper as well as both the papers.

Paper1, the B.Tech paper has three sections. The three sections are Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. Each section has 30 multiple choice questions with negative marking. Please do note that the pattern is not the same exactly as stated here. The pattern is subjected to change and has been getting changed at regular intervals of time. Generally, a student is awarded 4 marks for a correct answer and one mark is deducted out of the total score if the answer is wrong. This paper usually opts when the candidate wants to get admission in the B.Tech/B.E courses in the participating institutions.

Paper 2, the B.Arch. the paper has three sections. The three sections in AIEEE Paper 2 are Mathematics, Drawing and Aptitude. Mathematics and Aptitude Sections contain multiple-choice questions whereas the Drawing section contains the questions related to Drawing. This paper usually opts if the candidate wants to get admitted in the B.Arch. courses in the participating institutions.

Please note that AIEEE is replaced by JEE MAINS in April 2013. However, the time duration for both the papers is 3hours. The following are some of the instructions that should be followed by the students who are looking forward to taking AIEEE or JEE MAINS.
