Saurabh Kumar: This is not the time to learn anything new but to consolidate what one has already learnt. Focus on revision of important formula steps, assumptions, should be on top of the mind of the aspirant. It becomes essential that the student, basis his own analysis and experience, develops a mindset and confidence of deciding which subject to start with in order to get maximum right answers. They should eat healthy and practise meditation to manage stress and maintain calmness.

in jee main class 12 Marks details I have given chemistry Marks instead of computer science Marks though I got higher Marks in computer science .will it create any problem?

Aditya kumar Student Expert 22nd Oct, 2019
Hello there!

Greetings !

To calculate percentage in 12th board for filling jee mains application form you need to consider the marks scored in five subjects - (1) Physics, (2) Chemistry, (3) Mathematics, (4) A language and (5) Any subject other than the above four, is taken into account. So, it's good that you don't replaced chemistry marks by cs marks. Also, you don't need to worry at all, you will not face any problem as there's no percentage barrier to be eligible for jee mains. The criteria to be eligible for jee mains is that candidate should have passed class 12 or qualifying the exam in 2018 or 2019 or should be appearing in 2020 for it with Physics,Mathematics, and any one of (Chemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Technical Vocational Subject).

The percentage barrier comes while taking admission in NIT,IIT and GFTI for which candidates should have obtained a minimum of 75% marks in class 12 or equivalent exam or they must be in the top 20 percentile in their class 12 examination. For SC/ ST, the eligibility is to obtain a minimum of 65% marks in class 12 or equivalent.


hi, will it be asked during placement if I am dropping two years for jee mains? i passed in 2018 12th, i am studying in a college 1st year in 2019, and if i give jee mains 2020, will it be considered two years drop? or one year drop? since im doing college as well as preparing.

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 21st Oct, 2019
as you said that you did a partial drop and you had completed your class 12th in 2018 so if you will give JEE mains in 2020 then definitely there will be your two year drop considered, for that you will have to submit the reason for this drop when you will take admission in any college after selection, and if you give JEE mains in 2019 then your one year drop will be considered.
Best of luck.

How to score 90 percentilein JEE mains

Ashish pal Student Expert 21st Oct, 2019

Hello dear aspirant.

I think you will be well aware of the fact that from this year onwards there is slight change in JEE mains examination pattern. Scoring 90 percentile is not very tough still . You have to study regular and solve at least one practice paper daily and join test serieses to evaluate yourself.

It will surely help you.

Good luck
