only two months are left for jee mains January attempt exam how should I prepare for it?

Apurv 19th Oct, 2019

Hello Mitali, the best way to prepare would be revise the topics that you already know and make that even stronger, so that you don't at least miss questions from that. Then, you should focus on Inorganic chemistry which has a weightage of about 35-35% in JEE Mains, so you can start memorizing in the last 2 months. You can prepare for some of the topics of 11th class, because those are easier.


can i easily get into NIT? I am pwd candidate taking jee coaching

Ronak Gala Student Expert 19th Oct, 2019

It means you are General Person with disabilities candidate and for you people 3% seats are reserved. And in practically it gives you great chance to get a seat in any government field (May be not in defence).

Cut off marks of last year JEE mains

Unreserved general category had eligibility cutoff as 74 marks in JEE mains where as GENERAL PWD had 19 marks as cutoff... So you need to score 80 and above.. To be on a stage to crack NIT.

See for Gen PwD it is just 19 marks means if you correct just 5,6 questions then you will clear JEE mains and for just Gen they need to correct at least around 30 questions to clear JEE mains. Hope you getting this difference. But i suggest you do not take it as advantage and study less.. Please study well and try to get such marks that you do not need any type of reservation to get any seat.

Best wishes. Thank you.

what about pwd candidate jee? If I had hearing aid. Couldnt understand teacher speech

Devraj choudhary Student Expert 19th Oct, 2019


Hearing problem is also counted under pwd quota. But in case you are completely deaf than, under reservation you can get the admission,  but you will not be able to follow the lecture. You will need to cover the whole sllybus by your own.

Hope it helps
