About JEE Main 2020
JEE Main 2020 - To be held by the National Testing Agency (NTA), Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main is the national level undergraduate engineering entrance exam and the gateway for the admission to various B.Tech/B.E. programmes offered by 31 NITs, 25 IIITs and 28 CFTIs. From 2019, JEE Main is being conducted by NTA twice a year (January and April) 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 2020 will be held for 2 papers where Paper-I is for B.Tech admissions and Paper-II for B.Arch admissions. Applications of JEE Main 2020 for January session will be tentatively available from September 1 in online mode. The admit card will be released in the last week of December. The exam will be held tentatively in the second week of January with results declared by the end of January.
Candidates can appear twice for JEE Main 2020 -January and April. The better of the two scores will be used for the purpose of ranking as per the regulations laid by the authorities. States like Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Jharkhand and Nagaland as well many other private universities and institutes use JEE Main ranks for admissions; however, admission criteria for these will be notified by the concerned authorities only.
