JEE Main 2018 – What the brochure does not tell you
1. No Verification is done for Voter ID number
One of the essential steps while filling the application form of JEE Main 2018 is submitting the Aadhaar Card number or as in the case of J&K, Assam and Meghalaya candidates, the Voter ID number/Passport number or any Government ID proof number has to be submitted. No verification is done by the authorities for Voter ID number and it has been noticed that the candidates can enter any number to go through to the next stage of application process.
2. Aadhaar Card ensures no multiple applications
Submission of Aadhaar card number may seem as a hassle, however, it has been introduced for a very good reason. Once the candidate’s Aadhaar card number is submitted, he/she will not be able to reapply for JEE Main 2018. This will ensure that there is no multiple applications and will lessen the margin of rejected application form in the later stages.
3. State of Eligibility will decide the number of exam centres to be selected
The number of exam centres that the candidates will be able to select depends upon their state of eligibility. For most states, the number of exam centres that can be selected is four. However, some states also have a limited number of exam centres that they will be allowed to select for the pen and paper based JEE Main 2018 examination. Only one exam centres can be selected by those candidates who select the computer based exam.
4. Does State of Eligibility also affect the available language of medium?
Yes. The available language for JEE Main 2018 exam will depend on the state of eligibility selected by the candidates. English and Hindi will remain a universal language for all centres but the availability of Gujarati language will depend upon the candidate’s selected state of eligibility.
5. What the 75% qualifying marks really mean
There is often a lot of confusion seen regarding the 75% qualifying marks mentioned in the brochure of JEE Main 2018. So what does the 75% qualifying marks really mean? The qualifying aggregate marks of 75% in 12th standard examination makes the candidate eligible for admissions into NITs, IIITs and CFTIs. If, the candidate has not secured 75% marks, he/she will still be able to attempt JEE Main exam, however, he/she will not be able to get allotted into the NITs, IIITs and CFTIs. With the JEE Main scores, the candidate can apply to various other institutes which accept the respective scores.
6. Slot Booking for Computer Based Test?
While filling the JEE Main 2018 application form, those candidates who opt for Computer Based Test will be able to book their slots after the payment of application fee is completed. Selection of exam slot has to be done according to their preference. If, by any chance, the candidates fail to book their slots, then they will be allotted accordingly by the concerned authorities.
7. Editing of Application Form before Payment
Before the payment process is completed, the candidates will have a chance to edit their filled application form. It is advised to all candidates that proper review should be done since the correction facility, which will be open later, will not be open for editing of all the details. It is important to remember that no editing can be done after the payment is done.
8. Verification of Mobile Number and Email ID
After reviewing and submitting the filled application form, the candidates will be required to verify their registered mobile number and email ID. This is a new step introduced by the CBSE authorities. The OTP number will be sent separately to the mobile number and email ID of the candidate. The verification will be done after the OTP is submitted. The candidates will be able to move forward in the application process only after the verification is successfully done.
9. Progress of Application Form Captured
A side menu to inform the candidates about their application filling progress will be available throughout. By using this side menu, the candidates will be able to navigate themselves while also keeping a constant check on their application progress.
