Even for year 2018, you can appear jee mains in 2020. It has 3 attempts which means 2018,2019 ,2020.
For current year, if you have a good score in jee mains then you can appear for jee advance. Merit list for Jee advance is released by NTA. Candidates mentioned in that list are only allowed to appear JEE advance.
You have to prepare yourself so that you can perform your best in both the exams.
Hope it helps!
Brother Yash Dev I am preparing for jeemain. I need to join in robotics in any govt Colleges If possible. I am SC CANDIDATE. Now let explain me clearly. I got 86 percentile in January. Not only yash dev brother anybody can give me the suggestion. Please dont regret my question.
First we need to calculate your Approximate all India rank for getting a probable idea about your chances ,ok so it will be calculated using the formula given below:
Approximate Rank= (100-your total score)*869010/100.
Here 869010 is the number of candidate appeared for the January session of exam, now your approximate rank with 86 percentile would be: 121661 it is your approximate common rank it will definitely change according to the fluctuation because it depends upon the number of candidate appeared for the exam, difficulty level of the exam, total seats available.
With your approximate rank your chances are very less to get a government college for robotics even for robotics branch you need to have a good rank near about under 10,000 -20,000 (excluding category relaxation) , and your percentile must be 95 + now it depends upon your category so you may consider some relaxation also, there are various government/private colleges which offers robotics branch in BTech you can see through the below link:
Now I would suggest you to appear for the July session of exam and improve your percentile and rank if you have registered for it then it's ok and if you haven't registered so you will have to wait for the next time because application window has been closed now.
for more predictions you can refer the link provided you below and can use the college predictor tool:
Best of luck.
