JEE main entrance exam pattern is thoroughly objective. It consists of two papers. Paper 1 for engineering aspirants and paper 2 for architecture applicants. Mode of examination for paper one will be online as well as offline whereas the mode of examination for paper two will be offline.
JEE Main Paper 2 for B.arch comprises of questions regarding architecture where students must be familiar with acclaimed national and international buildings. Candidates drawing skills will be tested in drawing test accounting to how well a candidate will be able to depict their surrounding observation through drawings.

Understand the concepts clearly before proceeding to next topic. Segregate your syllabus into weekly and monthly sectors. Make use of Engineering Drawing Note for 2D/3D questions preparation. To avoid tedious repetition, try to add variation in your daily study schedule (i.e. studying Drawing, Math’s and Aptitude related concepts).
- Time Management
Time Management is one of the key aspects for success. Time must be spared to each subject. Most of the IITians start preparing for exam one year before the examination.
