While 12th standard marks do not matter for application and the examination, it will be considered during admissions. Only those candidates who secured minimum 75% marks (65% for SC/ST) in their 12th standard qualifying examination or are in the top 20 percentile of their board will be eligible for admissions into the participating institutes.
Diploma holders will be eligible to appear for JEE Main Paper I in order to advance for JEE Advanced examination. However, diploma holders will not be allotted seats on the basis of their JEE Main scores.
The state where the candidates have completed their 10+2 (or equivalent) qualifying examination will be their state of eligibility.

The number of questions have been reduced. Numerical questions have been introduced for all subjects except for aptitude and drawing in case of Paper 2. The total marks have also been changed to 300 for Paper 1 and 400 for Paper 2.
Numerical questions will have a numerical value as an answer and these will have to be generally accurate to the point of 4 decimals in most exams.

The ranks of JEE Main 2020 will be calculated on the basis of the final percentile that will be mentioned for each candidate. The best of the two scores will be used for candidates who have appeared in both the sessions while the score of the session appeared will be used for all others.
JoSAA will conduct a centralized counselling for JEE Main qualified candidates. To participate, the candidates will have to register and choose their preferred courses and colleges from the available list. Allotment will be done as per their merit in JEE Main, preferences and availability of seats. Total seven rounds of counselling will be held.
Yes. If the student works hard and is diligent with his/her studies, cracking JEE Main is not a tough thing.
see if you want to study computer science engineering in delhi technological university, you need to appear in jee main exam, and need to get more than 95 percentile. also need to have 60% marks in pcm in 12th course from a recognized board. however if you are interested for bsc in computer science you need to have more than 90 percentage marks in 12th exam, cutoff score changes every year , depends on number of participants, seat matrix, category of students etc.
You can edit your application if you have any mistakes in category,name,fathers name,mothers name,phd status,gender .. Since you want to change category remember these dates 08.03.20 to 12.03.29 . You can only change during these days. There won't be any changes further. Remember these dates and edit . Hope this is useful
There are chances of you getting NIT Trichiy as you've scored 94.42 percentile in JEE mains paper 2 examination and also because you're from OBC category.
You quota would play a major role in getting you admission in this college but still if you don't get your desired college there are many other good colleges that you get at this much percentile.
Best of luck !
The only disadvantage due to the low score in the 12th percentage is that you will not be eligible for admission in nits through the jee mains. But there are several other institutions that give more quality education, facility and placements and moreover good scholarships than the nits. It you consider that you are lucky and you can get admission in them very easily..
hope this information helps
all the best
The answer is NO, you don't need to give any other paper for getting into NDA. Other examinations have no relationship with NDA examination.
To get into NDA, you only need to give NDA examination. If you clear it you'll be called for SSB and physical test and if you're able to clear all these things you'll get into NDA.
