Should I drop 1 Year for JEE Main 2021? Check Study Plan for Repeaters
Should I drop 1 Year for JEE Main - One of the big questions coming from students after JEE Main results is should I drop one year for JEE? Is it wise or not to drop one year for JEE Main and prepare well such that an IIIT or NIT seat is secured the next year? Worry not. Many students are in this quandary and wish for another attempt considering that the competition is high and they have battled with class 12 and JEE Main exams. But is it really wise to drop one year for JEE Main and see if this dream can be achieved? Careers 360 takes a look at the pros and cons to help students make a wise choice about whether to take a drop of 1 year for JEE Main or not. Before talking about the advantages or disadvantages of dropping 1 year for JEE Main, it is advisable to see which category you belong to. Are you in class 12 or are you planning to repeat JEE Main after a not so successful attempt at securing an NIT seat etc?
Studying in Class 12? Should if I drop 1 year for JEE Main as I want to concentrate on board exams?
Actually studying for both class 12 boards and JEE Main is pretty much possible with good results. Most students who write JEE Main are in this category and therefore, you can easily crack the exam if you plan and prepare well. Many students do prepare for class 12 and JEE Main together as the topics and syllabus are pretty much the same. so gear up and strategize well to prepare for JEE Main and your board exams.
Tips to crack JEE Main - Segregate the JEE Main syllabus into common for class 12 and JEE Main. Study for both, practice the exercises after the chapter is done. Solve previous years question papers and use NCERT BOOKS to cement your concepts and fundamentals.
Appeared in JEE Main January or April and haven't scored that well?
If you have appeared earlier and now wish to drop one year for JEE Main, it may not be the ideal solution. Well, dropping one year is a waste of 12 months that could be used to complete one year of the four years that comprise B.Tech. NITs and IIITs or the IITs are not just the only good places to study. There are plenty of good institutes and universities which take through JEE Main and have a good ranking. Its better to apply for admission to these and complete your under graduation as JEE Main marks or rank won't matter after the admission. In such a case, try for a good performance in your under graduation such that you stand a better chance of placements.
Some colleges and Universities that consider JEE Main scores are
SRM University - it considers JEE main scores apart from its entrance exam
Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham - The university also considers JEE main scores apart from AEEE scores
States like Haryana, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Nagaland, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan etc also take through JEE Main.
With so many options, its best not to take a drop. Instead, it's wise to complete B.Tech and try for an M.Tech or an MBA seat in one of the IITs or NITs.-->
Should I drop 1 year for JEE Main - I appeared for both January and April but haven't scored such good marks?
The answer still would be to look for a college that takes admissions either through JEE Main or class 12. The above list is just an indicator about the large number of options available to you wherein you can compete your under graduation from a good university or college and then get well placed.
Should I drop 1 year for JEE Main as I have not appeared for JEE Main at all?
Try for colleges and universities which take through class 12. Not all colleges and universities ask for JEE Main scores. Many have their own entrance tests which are conducted after JEE Main. You could apply for these. Also you could look at admissions into colleges that take through class 12. Some examples for this would be
- Sastra University also takes through class 12 marks.
- Tamilnadu offers a few seats to other state students on the basis of class 12 marks
- Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Punjab are states that take through class 12 marks and 15% of the seats are for outside state students.
Statistics from previous years have shown that taking a drop is not an advisable idea as the number of students who have successfully cracked JEE Main after taking a drop of 1 year is less than 5%. The reason is fatigue on account of studying the same thing all over again and carrying the additional stress of having to do or die. So it's advisable to look for good options and build a good career than wasting one year.
In spite of all, if you still wish to take a drop of one year for JEE Main, then the decision should be taken after careful consideration and consultation with parents and teachers.

If you're from BC-D category and going to write for JEE mains despite your weak economical background, yes, there's facility of fee reimbursement. Fee reimbursement or tuition fee waiver facility will only work only if you secure more or equivalent to minimum qualifying rank and also have all the necessary documents to show your weak financial background, then you will be eligible for fee reimbursement, So as per the central caste list, you will be categorized as EWS or economically weaker section.
