Though it is not impossible to crack IIT-JEE or for that matter any exam on the planet without a coaching class and many people do it, it is recommended to join a coaching class. I say this because, firstly, your knowledge about certain topics is limited and to work on it, you do need an external support which the coaching class provides. Also, you could trust the coaching class with your doubts, which can be immediately addressed. Also, when you have people studying around you, it helps. You tend to acquire skills from different people, which might help you to excel in the exam. But, having said that, if you are confident enough that you can crack the exam on your own, you can surely go ahead with it, but do join a decently good test series, to constantly test your level of preparation.
Joint Entrance Examination Main(JEE Main) is the joint national examination that is conducted every year by Central Board Of Secondary Education (CBSE). Every year, more than 10 lakh candidates appear for this examination and get admission to various NITs, IIITs and other private colleges. It is important to note that JEE Main is the qualifying exam for JEE Advanced. Only those candidates are eligible to register for IIT-JEE advanced who have qualified the JEE Main examination and are among the top 2,20,000 candidates of JEE Main. JEE Main can be given either offline or online. From 2013 to 2016, the marks obtained in the class XII school board examination were given a 40% weightage in deciding the JEE Main All India Ranks(AIRs). But in 2017, the 12th percentage was not accounted to calculate the JEE Main rank. Earlier, counselling for JEE Main was conducted through Central Seat Allocation Board(CSAB) but now officials have made changes in the counselling procedure. The JAB (Joint Admission Board), representing IITs and CSAB (Central Seat Allocation Board) are organizing a common counselling for the two exams of JEE. The joint counselling committee for these exams is known as the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA). The admissions to various NITs and IIITs are done through JoSAA counselling.

IIT JEE MAIN 2017 was of easy-moderate level. Many questions were quite straight forward and could be answered by anyone who has prepared well for the exam. But a crucial role was played by some tricky questions which turned out to be the deciding factors. In every paper 5-6 questions were framed differently but there was no ambiguity in any question.
Physics was overall good, and was on the easier side. It barely had any surprise elements which in itself was surprising. Almost all the topics were covered here. Mathematics paper was of moderate level of difficulty. It had a few lengthy question and a few easy questions also. It required conceptual understanding of all the chapters and was nearer to the JEE Advanced paper. Chemistry was of moderate difficulty level. It was equally balanced with questions coming from Physical Chemistry, Inorganic and Organic Chemistry. Here, the questions were again conceptual and only a few were memory based.
There are many reasons to it:
The portion is humongous. The question paper pattern is completely unpredictable and the cut-offs can reach heights. The acceptance rate is quite low at the IITs, thus lakhs of people take the exam but barely a few make it.
But a simple answer to this question is that a seat at an IIT gives you quite a rosy future. Top companies battle to hire you and possibly early angel investor is dying to hear your business plan. It’s a staircase to success, to simply put it.
The IIT JEE Main exam would be conducted in April 2018 and IIT JEE Advanced would be conducted in the month of May 2018.
It would be announced in the last week of May 2018.

The syllabus of JEE Main includes all the topics of Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics given in NCERT of Classes 11th and 12th along with some extra topics that are very important from the perspective of other competitive examinations also. Students must note that the overall syllabus for IIT-JEE advanced and JEE Main is more or less same. The key difference is that some topics are not included in JEE Main syllabus but are the part of JEE advanced and vice-versa.
