Frequently Asked Question (FAQs) - NTA JEE Main 2020

Question: What is new in JEE Main 2020?

Answer:

NTA has announced that Paper 2 of JEE Main 2020 will be conducted separately for B.Arch and B.Plan. Instead of drawing section, B.Plan examination will have a section with questions on Planning. The application process has also been changed by the authorities and the fee can be paid only in online mode (net banking/credit card/debit card/UPI/PayTM). The application fee has also been changed for all categories. The number of exam centres has also decreased to 233 Indian cities and 9 foreign cities. In the previous year, the total number of Indian exam cities were 264.

Question: Is it mandatory to give the exam twice or can I give once? If I give the exam both the times, which score will be considered?

Answer:

This will be purely the candidate's choice. Whether he/she wishes to give one attempt or two is entirely up to them. In case they have attempted both the exams, the better of the two scores will be used for the purpose of ranking in the merit list.

Question: When will mock tests be available from? How to access them?

Answer:

JEE Main 2020 mock tests are available in online mode. The tests will also be downloadable by students who can work at their pace if they have a computer system. Students who do not have a computer may register and walk into any of the JEE Main 2020 practice centres that will be announced soon and will be able to practice every Saturday and Sunday.

Question: What should I concentrate more on - Class XII exams or JEE Main 2020?

Answer:

As the experts say, more emphasis should be given to class XII board exams. This is so because if a candidate fails to score well in class XII exams then he or she will not get a good college through JEE Main 2020. However, candidates can plan and prepare for JEE Main 2020 alongside board exams as the syllabus for both is quite similar.

Question: Will NCERT books be enough for JEE Main 2020 preparation or should I refer other books too?

Answer:

Only NCERT books will not be enough for JEE Main preparation. It does cover most of the exam syllabus, but it is advised to check other books too for better clarity and understanding of concepts.

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

hello,

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.

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.
