How to Crack JEE Main 2020 during Lockdown: Tips by Pramod Maheshwari, MD, Career Point
JEE Main is one of the biggest competitive engineering entrance exams in the country. Every year, lakhs of students aiming for admissions into NITS, IIITs and GFTis appear for JEE Main. Since it is a first step towards IIT admissions, the number of applicants for JEE Main is large. However, for this year there have been a lot of changes in the conduct of JEE Main due to the ongoing unavoidable situation of Coronavirus or also known as COVID-19. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the nation is under lockdown, which has been extended till May 3. The second session of JEE Main 2020 (April Session) has been postponed until further notice. With plenty of extra time handed over to the students before the examination, how can they prepare to crack the examination? Pramod Maheshwari, Managing Director & CEO, Career Point Limited gaves some exclusive tips on how to crack JEE Main 2020 during lockdown to Careers360. Here are some of the most important points that will help students crack the JEE Main exam in the first attempt:
Alternative options of e-education
A crisis is also a great opportunity to learn and develop new forms of learning. Online learning applications and platforms are available that provide a virtual classroom ambience with complete notes, expert opinions, online classes, mock tests, etc for best student preparation. Online portals help ensure academic continuity and put in place technology enabled interactive platforms, to engage with students. The online infrastructure makes it accessible through the internet from mobile smart phones, computers and laptops / desktops too. This allows students to learn by staying in the safety and security of their homes and ensure better learning outcomes, save time and increase the effective utilisation of time.
Learning as against mugging
Refer to JEE Main syllabus as most of the questions asked in exam are based on the same. Check out JEE Main sample papers to know the exam pattern and marking scheme. Refer to previous years' question papers, mock tests, etc for practice. Learning as against mugging and then focused revision to get a strong hold on topics and subjects which stay in memory for a longer period is the rule of the game.
Get concepts right first
The idea is to strengthen the concepts and their application by solving mock tests and past years’ papers. It is important to read thoroughly and conceptually apply formulae in JEE Main type questions even at the time of revision. This will help students in solving the questions within a short time in the exam as most of the questions in Physics/Mathematics will be based on conceptual application of formulae.This phase should be effectively used for quick run through short notes and formulae and concepts at a glance of all chapters of the three subjects in a phased planned manner with equal time to each subject.
Attempt regular mock tests
To test and analyse preparation, students are advised to take regular mock tests to know their strengths and weaknesses. JEE Main mock tests play an important role in making familiar with strong and weak areas. Attempt a few online mock tests as JEE Main will be held online in Computer-Based Test Mode (CBT mode). Online mock tests will help students gain experience of attempting online papers on a real-time basis.
Stay calm and focused
Do not sit for long hours at a stretch, but instead take small and frequent breaks. These intervals are essential for the brain to assimilate, retrieve information and revive the energy. There may be many distractions and thoughts running concurrently. Maintain calm and stay focused with determination. Students should enjoy the exam and its preparation positively.

Hope this help you
Best of luck
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?
So in total you have scored 168 out of 360. This is a decent score, you are in a much better position than most students. i can assure you that you can get a decent college by this score. You should try for JAC counselling for admission in NSIT, DTU and IIIT Delhi. Also apply for other universities like Thapar, GGSIPU and CU.
For UPSEE, you need to score well enough and then you may be able to get admission in HBTI Kanpur or prominent colleges of Lucknow.
Feel Free to ask any other query. Thanks!

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
