Sir I got 96.5 percentile in JEE jan 2020 i wish to improve my rank in April session .I got a chance in leading coaching centre for JEE advance .I am confused which is I focused JEE main or Advance

Subhodeep Biswas 28th Jan, 2020
Hey there hope you're doing well
Dear aspirant, congratulation on scoring a good percentile in the JEE MAIN examination. According to your percentile score in JEE MAIN your expected rank is about 30,415. With this rank you're likely to get into NITs. But it's good as you want to improve in your percentile and rank. As far as preparation is concerned since you have secured a decent rank in JEE MAIN a little effort would take you under 10k rank. For JEE ADVANCED you need to focus on analytical questions; problems that require in depth knowledge of subject matter. Joiningof coaching benefits you as they create a good competitive environment. Give full length test series a d practise more no. Of questions. Also absolve previous year JEE MAIN + ADVANCED problems.
Thank you hope this helps you!

JEE ADVANCE 2020 ELIGIBLE GENERAL CATEGORY JEE MAIN CUTOFF HOW MUCH?

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 28th Jan, 2020
Hello.
It is quite difficult to tell you the latest cutoff percentile to be qualified JEE mains for JEE advanced but yes by analysing the previous year records I can tell you that how much percentile probably you basically need to have, So for general category you need to have at least 85 percentile.
And remember the above percentile is on the basis of previous year record it may fluctuate with some factors.
Best of luck.
