Reason #2 - Make way for transparency

With technology taking over the manual test paper checking and management, the whole system of JEE Main 2020 has gone transparent. This is for the betterment of candidates so that there will be no bias.

Fairness is a big deal when it comes to JEE Main since a lot many things are at stake including the future of our country which lies on the shoulder of upcoming engineers.

So, worry not, since transparency is not at risk this year and one can expect fair and square exam conduction and its outcome too.

Reason #3 - Level be clever

In JEE Main 2020, the subject matter experts and psychometricians will play an active role as they will test the data of each and every question that will be asked in the exam. They will analyze all the questions statistically ensuring that questions are neither too difficult nor too easy for candidates appearing.

The question papers of JEE Main 2020 will have a balance of easy, medium and difficult questions from the prescribed exam syllabus.

This will give candidates an opportunity to perform better and outscore the outcome of the previous years.

Reason #4 - AI in the play

Yes, the next level of technology will play a crucial role in JEE Main 2020 exam.

Candidates who will be appearing in JEE Main 2020 will have first-hand experience of Artificial Intelligence (AI), as the question papers will have questions chosen at random from the question banks that will be based on scientifically designed blueprint and algorithm of the paper.

These question banks are no ordinary as they will be created by using AI and computer software. Doesn’t that sound fascinating?

The reason that NTA states behind this super cool (for a science fanatic) approach is the generation of a large number of tests in a relatively short time period, since, the exam will be conducted twice.

Reason #5 - Testing the real way

JEE Main 2020 will be conducted to not test the ratification abilities of candidates but to put them to the real test of finding out their actual capabilities of conceptual understanding and applying them too.

We all have to eventually live and work in the real world where performance matters. Therefore, to prepare candidates for the same thing, they will be tested on certain skills and knowledge via JEE Main exam.

The APT purpose of an exam will come into the picture in JEE Main 2020 exam as to check which student is good in which skill and how can their knowledge of science and technology be put to better use.

The statisticians of NTA will pick questions on which two groups of candidates (in two different attempts) have showcased similar knowledge or skills perform differently in the test through a process known as Differential Item Functioning (DIF) based on the administration’s data of previous years. In case, one group of candidates perform better than another, then questions that would have appeared in the exam will be considered as unsatisfactory.

Reason #6 - Mock test for boards

JEE Main 2020 January attempt may be conducted on January 9, 10, 11 & 12 while April attempt may conducted from April 7 to 12 if one goes by last year trends. Students will have to double up as a mock test for class XII board exams, though, the pattern and difficulty level of both the exams will differ.

But, for candidates who will appear for the first attempt of JEE Main 2020 will be able to analyze their preparation for boards as the syllabus for both is same.

Wherever lacking, candidates will have the time to fix it till they appear in their class XII boards and also for the second attempt of JEE Main 2020 April which may be scheduled to be conducted between 6 to 20 of the month.

Reason #7 - First is always right

If the thought of human tendency and psychology, we are always more excited about doing something new for the first time.

For those of who will appear in JEE Main 2020 January may have high chances of scoring more marks as the enthusiasm and the adrenaline rush will be relatively and all the pumped-up energy will be reflected in the answers.

However, for April test takers only, they will be free from the burden of boards and might be in a more relaxed situation.

Well, exceptions are always there, so, whether appearing in January or April or both, performance is all that matters, not the number of attempts it took.

Reason #8 - JEE for all, all for JEE

Just like CBSE took care of students with special needs, NTA too will make sure that with exam going Computer Based totally, those with special needs should not be left behind.

The authorities will conduct the exam that will be inclusive for all.

All candidates will get a fair opportunity to put forward their learnings and move forward in life. During JEE Main 2020, candidates with special needs will get:

  • Additional time in test

  • Scribe

  • Bigger FONT Text

  • Customized presentation colours

Reason #9 - Result be favorable

After the exam will be conducted, it will be assembled and reviewed by all the specialists, committee members and experts.

Each of the reviewers will answer all the questions independently and will submit a list of correct answers to the developers. This list will be compared with the answer key of the NTA.

In a nutshell, while preparing the result of JEE Main 2020, an extensive methodology including Item Response Theory (IRT) will be followed making it more transparent for all involved.

Also, the better scores of two attempts (January & April) will be counted to make the final rank list giving candidates two complete chances to perform what they have learned.

Reason #10 - JEE Jaan Tak

JEE Main is the baap of all exams. Appear in it in style and come what may, you will see yourself prepared for all state level and university level exams.

what rank should i get in jee mains to join j.n.t.u

Ronak Gala Student Expert 16th Oct, 2019

To my knowledge JNTUH do not consider JEE ranks

Getting into JNTUH require you to appear in EAMCET and through counseling depending upon your rank you will get admission in either JNTUH or its affiliated colleges.

To join some best colleges of your own state, you need to be get a rank under 2500 and if you want a college from another state then you need to get a rank under 1,000 to be on safer side.

Best wishes. Thank you.
