Recently NTA has made a big change in the eligibility criteria for B. Planning. The criteria have been narrowed down to just mathematics in class XIIth. Now all those who will have mathematics as the subject in the 12th board can apply for JEE Main Exam for B. Planning Courses. This is among the several changes being introduced in the Joint Engineering Entrance Exam.
Another big change is in the JEE Main exam pattern. The number of questions has been reduced from 30 to 25 questions. Earlier there were 90 questions, each subject carries 30 questions with the total marks of 360 (90*4). All the questions were MCQ type. Each correct answer fetched 4 marks and the wrong answer lead to loss of 1 mark
But now the question has been reduced to 25 in which 20 questions will be MCQ type and 5 questions will be of subjective type. So taking three subjects in account leads to a total of 75 question with total marks of 300 (75*4). Subjective questions will not have a negative marking.
