JEE Main 2019 Offline Exam: Offline or Pen & Paper Based Examination is the written exam using pen and paper. The exam will be conducted tentatively in the second week of April 2019.


Why should you write JEE Main 2019 Offline Exam?

  • From the very beginning of your school life, you are familiar with the pen and paper exam. Giving written exams on paper using the pen is your habit. You have acquired a good reading and writing speed when it comes to the offline exam. This will save a lot of your time, which you can use while revising your answers.

  • You can carry your test booklet home after the exam. Thus, you can cross check your answers and estimate your score also.

  • There is no such problem of any technical glitch or connectivity issue (for example power failure) during the offline exam and thus, you will not face such kind of hurdle while taking the test.

  • In JEE Main 2019 Offline Exam, you can have a look at all the questions at a time and you can decide which questions to attempt first and which ones to answer later, as per your convenience. You don’t need to follow any order.

Why should you not write JEE Main 2019 Offline Mode?

  • Time is consumed to fill the bubbles. Taken together, this is a considerable amount of time that otherwise can be used for attempting more questions or revising the answers.

  • Answers given once cannot be edited or re- answered in the offline exam. Your OMR sheet is checked by a machine, so even if you try to change your marked response by erasing, the machine may not be able to read the newly marked response.

  • To check an answer given previously or on another page, you have to waste some time searching for it.

JEE Main 2019 Computer Based Test (Online): It is an exam which is attempted using a computer and a mouse. It will be conducted tentatively in the third week of April 2019.

 

Why should you write JEE Main 2019 Online Exam?

  • The biggest advantage of JEE Main 2019 Online Exam is that the answers can be given by click of the mouse, and it saves a lot of time. With this, you can speed up your exam and avoid wasting time.

  • Changing the answers in an online exam is easy. You can review and edit your answers at any point of the examination.

  • Answers can be marked for review for questions that are slightly doubtful so that you can come back during the examination to review and finalize the answer.

  • There is a panel on the computer screen that shows all questions in different coloured schemes indicative of Answered Questions, Unanswered Questions, Questions Marked for Review and Questions not Visited. With this, you can check the number of answers that you have attempted, not attempted, etc., all through the panel given on the screen.

  • The online exam will have time counter on the computer screen. You don’t need to keep looking at your watch to check the time left.

  • The online mode of exam also has environmental benefits such as reduced usage of paper. 

Why should you not write JEE Main 2019 Online Exam?

  • Certain technical problems may occur in the computer-based test.

  • There is no guarantee for safeguard against power cuts during the exam.

  • There will be no question paper given to you after the exam to cross check later.

  • If you are not familiar with reading on the computer screen, then it will be an issue for you as all the questions need to be answered by you on the computer screen only.
