Benefits Of Conducting The Entrance Test In “Multiple Sessions”

If the NTA engineering joint entrance exam is conducted in multiple sessions, then it benefits the candidates in the following ways-

  • It gives multiple opportunities to the candidates to improve their scores in the examination if they fail to give their best in the first attempt without wasting their whole academic year.
  • This also reduces the chances of dropping a year. Droppers don’t have to waste their full year.
  • In the first attempt, the students get a first-hand experience of taking an examination and will get to know their mistakes which they can improve next time.
  • If a student misses the exam due to certain reasons, then he/she do not have to wait for one year.
  • The best 2021 NTA Scores is considered for preparing the merit list and ranking.

      Have a Good Day

    • Hey Sameer,
      NTA has not made any official announcement regarding any changes in the exam pattern of JEE Main 2021. Hence, follow the previous year’s paper pattern.

    • The weightage of the Class 11th & 12th syllabus in JEE Main is nearly equal. Sometimes, more questions come from the 11th class syllabus in comparison to Class 12th syllabus. But, this changes every year. Hence, it is impossible to predict the 2021 session syllabus weightage.

    • JEE Main 2021 Notification will be released in September 2020. It’s too early to say something about the JEE Main 2021 Syllabus and exam pattern change or not.

    • Hello Kishwar,

      Also, in order to fill the application form, the candidates must have passed Class 12th or appearing that year. There is no age limit to apply for JEE Mains. For more detailed information, read the article.

      If you cannot download the admit card itself, then your application has been rejected. You can fill the application form for April Session.

    • Hi, you must be entering the wrong password which is the reason, you cannot login to pay the application fee/upload the scanned images. Please check the procedure given HERE to change/recover your registration password.

    • Yes, you are eligible to take the exam but you must enter your qualified exam as 12th Appearing in 2019. Because the year of passing class 12th should be 2017, 18 or appearing in 2019. Since you haven’t passed class 12th in 2018, you will be considered class 12th appearing candidate of 2019. You will be asked to enter your class 12th result score after all class 12th board exams of 2019 have been declared.

      • Since you have given JEE Main 2018 for the first time, you are now left with only two attempts that you can take in 2019 and 2020. In both these years, you can take the JEE Main twice which is in January and April.

    • As per the new scheme, the JEE Main 2019 exam will be conducted twice in a year. The Number of attempts for admission in a particular academic session will be treated as One. The age eligibility as prescribed for appearing JEE Main 2019 allows a
      candidate to appear in JEE (Main) for three consecutive years. You can give JEE Main 2 times in a year now (January and April) but it will be counted as 1 attempt.

      Till last year, there was a correction window where candidates could correct the uploaded photographs. This year NTA JEE Main for correction will start on 8th October. So, let us wait for NTA to release a notification about what all can be changed in the application form.

  11. Oh man who has written the preparation tips. You reminded me of sherlock now I’ll have to watch that a bit. Then gonna dig internet.

  12. 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

      5. Submit and review the application form

    • 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:

Such applicant may visit any Aadhaar enrolment centre (list available at uidai.gov.in) 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

    • 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.
