Frequently Asked Question (FAQs) - NTA JEE Main 2020

Question: What is new in JEE Main 2020?


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?


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?


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?


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?


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.

is 53 percentile in jee main good

Sourandhi saha Student Expert 26th May, 2020
As you got 53 percentile in Jee Main January session, your expected rank would be around 4.08 lakhs in CRL. Now if the number of candidates in April Session increases, your rank would also increase. With this rank, it is almost difficult to get into any decent engineering college even with State Quota. Even if you from anu reserved category, this is going to be difficult. You can appear for the April session and increase your chances for getting a better college. Also you can appear for University level entrance exams like SRMJEE, VITEEE, BITSAT etc.

Aditya Kumar Student Expert 26th May, 2020
Hi Sumit

One can give JEE Mains examination for 3 consecutive years starting from the year in which he or she appears for 12th board examination

Now, there are 2 situations in your case :-

  • If you had filled the board examination form this year in 2020 but didn't appear for it and will appear for board exam in 2021 then you will be eligible for only 2 years i.e for jee mains 2021 and 2022 and jee advance as well

  • If you hadn't filled then board examination form and will appear for your 12th examination in 2021 then you will be eligible for 3 years i.e for JEE mains 2021, jee mains 2022 and jee mains 2023 and you will be eligible for JEE advanced as well after qualifying JEE mains, but for jee advance you can appear only only twice

Thank you


Ayush 26th May, 2020

Hello ,

See , for JEE Mains every candidate has 3 attempts . One in year you are appearing for 12th exam and next  two consecutive year , if you don't appear in any of them due to any reason your one chance is gone , so now you have two chances left one next year and another next  to next year . Means you can give JEE Mains in 2021 and 2022 both .

But keep in mind JEE Advance only give you 2 chances so you was unable to appear  now this year you have only one chance left that is next year . So you can give JEE Advance in 2021 but not in 2022 .

Hope this will help you.

Thanks .
