It was not always the entrance to IITs in the country. IIT KGP held its own entrance tests till 1959, as it was the only IIT in the country.
JEE is known for its high security and fairness, but did you know the paper was leaked once? In 1997, IITs had to conduct entrance twice because the paper got leaked in some centers.
From 1960 onwards all the sister IITs conducted their entrance tests together. It had four subjects including English Language!
The Main and Advanced concept isn’t new. IITs used to screen 20,000 students out to 450,000, from 2000-2005. For other engineering colleges there were AIEEE and state PETs.
Joint Entrance Exam was not always called that. In its early days it was called Common Entrance Exam aka CEE.
JEE has sired a 10Cr coaching industry and single handedly turned Kota from a site of a nuclear factory to one of biggest and certainly earliest coaching hubs.
Till 2005, JEE was a mix of subjective and objective. It was revamped as a single objective type test in 2006. Additional changes included were the class 12 marks criteria, whereby a general candidate had to score 60% and SC/ST/PwD had to score 55%.

The number of women taking admission in the IITs through Joint Entrance Exam dipped by 2% in 2016. This prompted the government to create supernumerary seats for girls. Supernumerary means seats apart from the existing ones therefore not hitting the general category boys.
The current admission rate through JEE has fallen from 1.95% in 2012 to 0.92% in 2017. The whole pattern of engineering tests were dismantled and the new system of mains and advance came to being in 2013.
