Here are the ten reasons to appear for JEE Main 2020:
Reason #1 - Shake hands with Technology
The modern age is all about Technology. So, if you wish to survive in this era, you can’t run away from knowing and adopting the technical know-how. It is literally everywhere now from homes to offices to banks to hospitals, so sooner or later, you will have to face it and trust me, it will not eat you up, at least, not at one go! For those of you have Logizomechanophobia or the fear of computers in easy language, don’t think two times, it is now or never! JEE Main 2020 is a computer-based test and you be the future engineers. This is high time to overcome your fear of appearing in a computer-based exam, better, give it a go.
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
JEE Main 2020 was conducted from January 6 to 9 while April attempt will be conducted between September 1 to 6. NTA has released the mock test for preparation. Students can double up their preparation with the help of mock test.
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 appeared 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
NTA make sure that with exam going Computer Based totally, those with special needs should not be left behind.
The authorities conducts 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
Bigger FONT Text
Customized presentation colours
Reason #9 - Result be favourable
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

Questions related to JEE Main
I have got 28 in Mathematics, 72 in Physics, and 68 in chemistry. Is it possible for me to get admission in any engineering college if I perform well in JEE or UPSEE?
To appear for the jee exam there is no such percentage eligibility criteria, but once you qualify the exam and search for nit or iit colleges, you won't get admission there because to get the admission in nits or IITs the min. Percentage eligibility criteria is 75% and your pcm percentage is 56 only, but there are many private institutes where you can get admission in, so go for a private college.

Dear sir/Mam I am fill form of VITEEE 2020 but due to COVID-19 it has been cancelled and admission is on basis class 12th marks and Jan JEE mains percentile, but Im not giving jan JEE mains exam and my 12th percentage will be 55%(general) can I get admission......
Hey Ayush :)
Since Viteee is cancelled due to the situation of this pandemic and is based on the numbers of board results as well as on jee mains exams.
You need to get 60% marks in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics or Biology (PCM/PCB) in +2 (or its equivalent).
If you get minimum this much marks then only you are able to participate in viteee.
I feel that you should practice hard and appear in second attempt of jee mains which will be going to be held on 1-6 September 2020.
Or you can appear in improvement of board marks and then apply in next year. I feel with the hard work you will be able to get a good college.
If you wish to appear in this year only then you should also apply for other papers such as comedk, upsee, paper of Gla university etc.they contain many good colleges.
Many colleges also provides management quota such as abes,aktu etc(especially in upsee there is a liberty of 10% management quota ). you can go to this way also, these colleges does there own test and interview to get the admission for these 10% management quota seats. you can go to the website of upsee to look at the number of colleges and there management quota. wish that you will take fine and best step according to your will and ability.
I also recommend you to go to official sites of these colleges and have a look on the eligibility criteria. so as to get maximum opportunities.
These above steps should be taken after 2nd attempt of mains(in your case it is first).
You should practice hard for 2nd attempt of mains. you can go to online material providers which provides you the basic idea of the previous years mains question pattern.
I feel that 10 to 15 practice set of each subject is sufficient to anyone.
Plan strategically and work hard for your future.You are the best maker of your future.
I wish you get a very nice college in future.
Wish this answer is helpful to you.
Thanks and regards
