  1. I had filled the first exam of jee mains of january but i didn’t filled the exam of april so my ques is -there is any problem regarding this???

  2. Can I apply for jee advanced when I have 60 percentile in jeemains! Exactly how many Mark’s forme in jee main from out of 360? Please Jenny tell me???

    • Hi Pallavi, to take the JEE Advanced, you need to score the cutoff that has not been released yet. We will inform you as soon as it is made available.

    • Nahi, Zaroori nahi h. JEE Mains ke 2 exams jo January and April mein ho rhe hain, unmein se sirf 1 de saktey ho, ya fir dono de saktey ho. It is upto the candidate.

    • Yes, till now there is no change in the dates, therefore the JEE Main 2019 will be held on 8th 9th 10th 11th and 12th.

    • Yes, you can apply for jee main if you have taken the JEE Main before in 2017 or 2018. However, if you had already applied for JEE Main 2019 and have not got the admit card, then you cannot apply again for the January exam. You can apply for the April exam.

  3. My marks in class 12 exams were 75 in English, 89 in Alternative English, 72 in Maths, 71 in Chemistry, 62 in Physics. I am from Assam and belong OBC. Am I eligible for counselling if I clear JEE mains
    in 2019 ?

    • You should check top 20 percentile criteria of your respective board.if you sattisfie that condition then you are eligible for counseling .
      Because your total marks is less than 75%

  4. Is it compulsory to upload a scanned photo along with name and date bottom of photo? . I have uploaded only normal pic . Pls tell me

    • Yes, it is compulsory to upload the image with your name and date of taking the photograph on it as it will be required for verification. In case, you haven’t done so, you will be required to change the uploaded image during application form correction window. However, it is not confirmed as of now if the uploaded images can be changed or not. It is most likely that like previous years, this year NTA will allow change in the images uploaded but you must wait for final notice regarding the same.

    • No, it is not necessary to take both the exams. You can either appear for January or April session or appear for both the exams. The choice is yours.

  5. If a student want to give improvement in boards ,for jee mains in how many sub did he have to give improvement ,is this a rule to give improvement in all five subject for jee mains…

    • Hi, as of now you cannot select the date and time. NTA will assign the JEE Main 2019 Date and time. If there are any changes, we will update it here.
