january jee main2020 registration me by mistake invalid obc ncl upload kare ,exam bhi diye ,phir yesterday usi me april ke liye login kare ab age kya kerna? login kerne ke bad, fresh candidate ke liye register ker sakte kya?valid obc ncl certificate ke sath please help me

Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 24th Feb, 2020

Yes, you should apply as a fresh candidate because you have already given the exam and if you will use score of the JEE mains january session then you will have to show the valid document and since you obc ncl certificate was invalid, you must apply as fresh candidate.

I hope this helps

I have filled general category in my january jee mains 2020 . Can i change it to General EWS in jee main april. If yes if I get higher marks in January than April then which will be considered?

sheba chani 24th Feb, 2020


If you have valid documents to prove that you belong to EWS category, you can change your Category to EWS for JEE Mains April application.

EWS reservation is for Candidates who belong to General Category and whose annual income from all sources is less than 8 lakhs. If you fulfil the criteria you can apply under the General EWS category.

The better of the two scores is considered. So , if you get higher marks in the January paper then, that is the one that will be considered.

Hope this helps.
