mam how I will get a good rank in jee main . to complete my ncert and ncert textbook level question only .

prem meghani 28th Jan, 2020

Dear Aspirant,

If you have read ncert well then you can score good marks as it is analysed that most of questions in Jee exam are occurred from NCERT .But the thing is that to crack those questions you should have in depth knowledge of Ncert it means you have read line to line of ncert.After reading or completing ncert you must solve practice questions from a Good book .So for that you can prefer Universal Self Scorer.

total number of students appeared for jee mains paper 2 in 2020 January 6th evening shift?

prem meghani 28th Jan, 2020
Dear Aspirant

Total no of students in particular shift cannot be predicted but official data from national testing agency stated that There were 869010 students were apperared in January session .
So There were total of 869010 students apperared in Jee January session .So you can calculate your rank By the formula No of Candidates apperared in exam /100 *(100- Nta score ).
But if the no of Candidates in April session changes to 12 lakh then your rank will change accordingly.
All the very best

You need to do more hard work in upcoming attempt of jee mains to get a nit or iiit .

A formula is given by National Testing agency to calculate the rank .The formula is No of candidates apperared in exam/100 *(100- Nta score ).So the no of candidates appeared in January seasion was 869010 .So your rank will be 133740.

But if the no of candidates apperared in April exam will 12 lakh so your rank will vary accordingly to no of Candidates apperared
