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.

I hope this helps.

will I get good recognition if I get more than 100 Marks in jee mains with approximate 80 percentile

Rakesh Sai 11th Dec, 2019
Yes it is a good score but not a descent score .
See it depends on the paper quality .Like if it is too easy
It is an easy mark but if it is too difficult it is a good mark. But independent of the quality based previous year results it isn't a good score or seat getting mark.
So work hard for a good score and aim for at least 150 and above.
Getting 150 + is easy if you plan well and practice more.
As there is still time prepare well and aim higher.
All the best.

by just studying ncert books approximately how many Marks will I be able to get in jee mains

Aditya Saini 11th Dec, 2019

Hi D.gautham,

Ncert books highly conceptive so you need to concentrate more to grab the concept by ncert .

If you have really understood NCERT books completely line by line, gone through each and every word of it including the tables and reactions, all solved examples and all questions of the exercises then it will be sufficient to score around 200–240 depending on your accuracy.

But you need to practice more and more from different numerical books which you have need.

Hope it helps

All the best
