Answer:

Diploma holders can appear for JEE Main Paper 1 only to qualify for JEE Advanced. They are however not eligible for admission through JEE Main Paper I.

Question: I have made a mistake in my JEE Main application. Shall I fill another form?

Answer:

NTA has also announced the dates for corrections in JEE Main 2020 application form. Dates for JEE Main application form correction are October 14 to 20.

Question: I forgot to mention my name and date below the photograph? Will I be able to write the exam?

Answer:

The candidates will not be penalised for uploading the photograph without name and date. Therefore, you will be able to attempt the examination. However, the candidates are requested to follow the proper guidelines.

Question: How many times in total can a candidate appear for the exam?

Answer:

 Each candidate can appear for JEE Main for three consecutive years. Since the new format has two attempts, candidates can appear for a total of six attempts going by the rule book.

Question: The scores will be on the basis of the candidate’s performance. But with multiple sessions, how will the score be equalized? What will ranks be awarded on?

Answer:

Normalization will be used to equalize the scores from multiple sessions. The formula has been explained in a detailed manner by NTA. It will be done for each session and for each subject.

Question: If I have failed in my class 12 in 2017 but passed in 2018, can I still appear for JEE Main 2020?

Answer:

No, as the first attempt is 2017 so you will not be eligible to apply for JEE Main 2020.

Question: What is the state of eligibility? Is it the same as domicile?

Answer:

The state of eligibility is the state where a candidate has studied his/her class 12 or equivalent. So it has got nothing to do with the domicile of the state to which the candidate belongs to.

Question: What is the state of eligibility for the Improvement Candidates /Institution Abroad/NIOS?

Answer:

The state of eligibility in case of improvement candidates will be the state in which they first attempted their class 12 and not the state in which improvement was written.

In case of candidates from institutions abroad, the state of eligibility will be based on the permanent address mentioned in the passport.

In case of NIOS candidates, the state in which the NIOS study centre is situated will be the state of eligibility.

The state of eligibility is not applicable for the candidates belonging to Nepal /Bhutan/Foreign/OCI/PIO.

the syllabus of physics & chemistry is same for jee mains & neet

prem meghani 7th Dec, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

The syllabus of both Jee and neet is based on class 11 and 12 th so the syllabus is comparatively same of both but the difference is in level of questions and pattern of questions. Neet have more questions as compared to Jee which need high accuracy to clear cutoff . whereas Jee has less questions but the level of jee question is somewhat high and it needs lot of practice to crack the particular problem.

Thanks

All the very best .
