If I cant produce ews certificate then what will be the status of my candidature. What are the docoments required to upload at jossa registration. Is fresh registration required for Jee Mains 2020 April session, and if it mismatch with January 2020 then...

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 21st Oct, 2019


to claim ews reservation it is mandatory to submit asset and income certificate. many people has applied for ews certificate and still did not get it.

if at the time of counselling you do not have ews you may show the income and asset certificate. still instructions is not clear about this.

if your jee main January session goes bad, you may re appear in April session, and you need to separately apply for it.

if you want to apply in both session you have to mention it at the time of first time registration. between the two better score will be considered.

What is Jee main qualifying mark in 2020? for pwd candidate

_Abhishek_Vatsya Student Expert 20th Oct, 2019


Cuttoff score of any category depends upon level of paper.. Cuttoff can be predicted after analysing Jee mains paper  and JEE MAINS 2020 EXAMINATION will conduct on January..So patiently wait till EXAMINATION gets over..But you can take 40+ score as safe score for getting seats in NITs..

Ask if any query..

How many marks should i get to qualify in JEE mains 2020 Exam

Anupam Kumar Student Expert 20th Oct, 2019

Hey there

Cutoff can only be predicted after seeing the toughness of the question so at this time predicting the cutoff is of no use. Also do not think of just clearing the cutoff as if you'll just clear the cutoff then also you'll not get any good colleges. So try score atleast more than 130+ for good colleges.
