I passed 12 th in 2019, can I pass 12 th in again 2022 and sit in jee advanced
If you want to study class 11th and 12th again and if you have already passed once then you will have to do it from a different board and probably a state board.I believe this is not a good option because this will waste your 2 years. Instead you should give improvement exam and and enhance your marks.
Again the decision is yours, take wisely.
Minimum marks score in each subject in jee mains quality.
JEE Mains total marks is 300. Mathematics 100, physics 100 and chemistry 100. You have to secure 100 marks in total to qualified. But if you want to know minimum marks each subject then it should be 35 . You have to score 35 marks in each subject then you will qualified in JEE Mains examination. But you have to target more marks then you can achieve good marks and your rank will be better. So study hard dear.
All the best.
