About JEE Main 2019

Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main is the national level undergraduate engineering entrance exam. The entrance exam is the gateway for the admission to various B.Tech/B.E. programmes offered by 31 NITs, 23 IIITs and 23 CFTIs. From 2019, JEE Main will be conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA), twice a year in computer-based mode only. Also, JEE Main is the qualifying test for JEE Advanced through which candidates can get admission to 23 IITs. JEE Main 2019 will be held for 2 papers where Paper-I is for B.Tech admissions and Paper-II for B.Arch admissions. States like Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Uttarakhand and Nagaland & some other institutions use JEE Main ranks for admissions; however, admission criteria for the mentioned states will be notified by the concerned state authorities only.

The new changes in JEE Main 2019 allow for candidates to appear twice for the entrance exam in a given year. The better of the two scores will be used for the purpose of ranking as per the regulations laid by the authorities.

JEE Main 2019 Result

JEE Main Paper 1

JEE Main 2019 result will be announced in online mode by the authorities. As Paper-I will be conducted in multi-shifts, raw marks obtained by the candidates in different sessions will be converted to NTA Score. 

The authorities will merge the calculated NTA scores for all the sessions and will announce the result of JEE Main 2019 for January attempt on January 31. This result will be comprised of four NTA scores for each of the three subjects- Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry along with the total marks obtained in Paper-1 of JEE Main2019 for the first attempt.
