what should be the best time table for the preparation of jeemains april n advance for 2020

RAJAT Chaple 24th Jan, 2020

Heyyy aspirant

According to me you should focus on all the easy concepts that you have your built on . Once you are thorough with those concepts then you should jump to those concepts that are lil tough and hard and you have practiced a lot earlier but you are not strong with them right now . You should try to solve all those questions which you have solved earlier.  DO NOT JUMP ON TO NEW QUESTIONS .

For the hard or lengthier concept you should try to solve more of the basics .

DO NOT INDULGE IN NEW CONCEPTS .

hope this helps .

my jee main mark 2020 is 71.9 what is my percentage?

Harsh Pandey 24th Jan, 2020
I would like you to once again go through the question you have asked and please correct it because i think you have provided the percentile score instead of marks because in JEE Mains you cannot get Marks in decimal numbers. And please be clear about what you want to ask. With percentile one cannot tell you about the percentage of marks because percentile score is evaluated in comparison with the toppers marks and percentile to marks ratio of each and every sessions (in 8 sessions of January Mains)  is different.
However by percentile score you can predict your overall ranking by following method:
Since your score is 71.9...
To get the percentage  of people ahead of you :
(100 - your percentile)
100-71.9= 28.1
And the number of candidates appeared for Jan exam were 869010
The formula to predict rank is-
(100 - your score) x 869010/100
28.18690.10 = 244191
So your rank would be about 244191.
Kindly provide error free questions to get clear answers..
Thank you..
