Careers360: Did you face any difficulties since the examination was conducted completely in computer based mode?

Dhruv: I did not face any problems because the computer based mode is very familiar to me.

Careers360: Was there a difference in the preparation strategy in the last months of JEE Main considering that the board exams are also coming up? How did you manage preparation for both?

Dhruv: No. The preparation for JEE Main and board exams are totally similar. There is no major difference other than JEE Main being objective and board exam being subjective.The syllabus and course are all the same.

Dhruv: More than mock tests, I practiced using previous year question papers. I feel that solving previous year question papers are the best way to prepare for the examination.

Careers360: Are there any special books that you feel have helped with your JEE Main preparation? Are the school text books adequate for preparing for JEE Main and Class XII?

Dhruv: NCERT books are more than enough for JEE Main. According to me, no other books are required.

hi Ive scored 93.4 in jee paper 2 can i get admissions at nit /iit?

Devraj choudhary Student Expert 20th Feb, 2020


The first thing. The admission in IITs are not done on the basis of jee main percentile.  Its just a qualifying exam, where you need to qualify.  For admission you need to get very high score for admission.

Now, for admission in Barch at IITs you need to appear for jee mains paper1 then qualify and jee advanced then qualify it and the AAT.

For admission in barch in NITs is enough.  But your percentile is insufficient.  One can get admission till 2000 rank in general Category.  But your rank will be more than 10k. So, better to reprepare for april main.

Hope it helps


What is the variation of rank in OBC-NCL and OPEN category in JEE ADVANCED?

Sharon Rose Student Expert 20th Feb, 2020


The category rank and open category rank cannot be determined until the total number of candidates appeared in the exam and number of candidates in candidates in each category are known.All such data will be available after the examination.But the category rank will be lower than the open category rank and it depends on the total number of candidates belonging to a particular category appeared in the exam.So the count always changes.
