While filling the JEE-mains form I gave my passport sized picture and the other required stuff..the man who was filling the form told me that the photo must have a white background instead of black as it can create some problems…so is it true that the photo must have white background instead of any other dark colour? Because I haven’t heard about anything yet..

    • Yes, the photograph must have a light background instead of a dark one. according to the Information Brochure of JEE Main 2019 “The photograph should be coloured or black/white (but clear contrast) with name of the candidate and date of taking the photograph printed on it as shown. It should be without cap or goggles. Spectacles are allowed. Polaroid photos are not acceptable. Candidates with unclear photograph are liable to be rejected.”

      Therefore to avoid rejection, upload the photograph with light background.

    • It is better that you get it clicked from a photo studio as the photograph must be clear and have your name and date of taking the photo printed on it.

    • Hi, there is no percentage of marks required to appear in JEE Main 2019. You must have passed class 12th. However, Admission to NITs, IIITs and CFTIs participating though Central Seat Allocation Board will be based on All India Rank subject to the condition that the

    • NTA has not released any notification or updates regarding the percentage or marks required to qualify the JEE Main 2019 Exam. But as soon as NTA releases the cut off criteria we will update it here

    • NTA has released these details in the JEE Main 2019 Information Brochure:
      “Candidates not yet enrolled for Aadhaar, are hereby required to make application for Aadhaar enrolment in case he/she is entitled to obtain Aadhaar as per section 3 of Aadhaar Act. Such applicant may visit any Aadhaar enrolment centre (list available at to get enrolled for Aadhaar.”

    • There is no minimum percentage to qualify. Just give your best. But in case if you want to take JEE Advanced, you need to rank in top 200000 Candidates to qualify for JEE Advanced.

    • Hi,
      You must have passed class XII or qualifying exam to appear in JEE Main. Even if you are going to take class XII exam in 2019, you can take the JEE Main 2019.

    • No, it is not compulsory to appear for JEE Main Paper 1 and 2. if you want admission in engineering courses, then go for Paper 1 and if you want to take admission in architecture courses, then you have to appear in Paper 2.

    • Hi,
      you can now take the JEE Main twice in an academic session which means that for 3 consecutive years from 2019, you can take the exam 6 times.

    • Hi,
      Your age criteria allows you to take the JEE Main 2019. But since you have taken 1 attempt in 2016, you cannot take the 2019 JEE Main because 3 attempts are allowed in only 3 consecutive years.

  16. how many attempts will be allowed for a candidate appearing 1st time in jee main exams going to be held during Jan, 2019, whether appearing in Jan. & April exam will be counted as one attempt or two

    • If you are taking JEE Main 2019 for the first time then you will be eligible to take the JEE Main in 2020 and 2021. Both January and April session will be counted as one attempt.

    • Hi Arun,
      You must have scored a minimum aggregate of 75% marks (general category candidates) and 65% (in case of SC/ST/PWD category) in your 12th Board exams.

    • Nahi, JEE Main 2019 exam pattern pichli baar ki tarah same hai. We will inform you if there are any announcements made regarding the change in NTA JEE Main 2019 Exam patter.

    • Considering the previous years’ eligibility criteria where the number of maximum attempts was 3, you can take the JEE Main 2019 January and April exam as both taken together will be counted as one attempt.

        • Hey Aafan, NTA has stated in the information brochure that there is no age limit for JEE Main 2019 but you need to fulfill the criteria that you have passed Class 12th in 2017 or 2018 or you are currently studying in class 12th i.e in 2019.
          Therefore for 2017 candidates, the number of remaining attempts will be 2, for 2018 candidates the number of remaining attempts are 4 and for 2019 candidates there will be 6 attempts.
          Hope this solves your query.
