So the first step candidates must do is to download the JEE Main question paper that is available in the candidate login. This means that they will have all the question Ids on hand. Then they must check the JEE Main provisional answer key for the questions and match them. In case of discrepancy, they must note the question ID and the answer ID to keep track of the same.

How to challenge the answer key?

Mode of Counselling: Online

There is no special counselling for JEE Main. Instead, it is held commonly through Joint Seat Allocation Authority ( JoSAA) along with the counselling for JEE Advanced. To participate in JoSAA counselling, candidates have to register in online mode. The counselling and seat allotment of JEE Main will be based on candidate’s merit, availability of seats and choice of institute and courses. JoSSA counselling will consist of two mock rounds followed by seven rounds.

JEE Main Counselling:

  • There is no registration or application fee for JEE Main counselling held through JoSAA. 
  • Registration is one time during counselling. This is valid for all rounds of the counselling.
  • Candidates must enter their options for courses and colleges.
  • Seat allotment of JEE Main will be on the basis of the options filled by the candidate, merit rank and seat availability
  • Thereafter for every round after the allotment, candidates who are allotted seats must download the provisional seat allotment letter, pay the part seat acceptance fee and report to the nearest reporting centre as specified for verification of documents.
  • Next they must take indicate their wishes with regard to the seat allotted:
    Freeze option if they wish to keep the seat and not participate further
    Float option if they wish to upgrade in the next rounds
    Slide if they like the institute but wish to upgrade to a better branch within the same institute
  • Withdraw if they wish to participate no further in the counselling process.

After the last round is completed, candidates must report to the institutes to complete their admission formalities by paying the balance fee and submitting the requisite documents to the allotted institute.

Yash Dev Student Expert 26th May, 2020
Hello student with 87 percentile being an OBC category student its difficult to get admission into any IIITS or NIT's as we all know that seats are very limited and admission is directly based on merit rank.

Cut off vary every year on various factors like the level of question in the entrance examination and total number of applicants in that examination.

Feel free to comment if you have any doubt
Good luck

I cant stand focusing on my studies. I am preparing for JEEMAIN 2020. I need to get atleast 200+Marks in jeemain exam. Are there any focusing tips for preparing for the exam? I am getting with the phone and as I was in the home how can I overcome all these?

Rehan Alam Student Expert 26th May, 2020
Dear Aspirant,
You must follow these simple steps:-
1. Check out the syllabus and structure your preparation, made a plan on how you're going to cover the syllabus.
The best thing to help you in this is coaching material from some good institute. They have their material prepared according to the need of the Exam.
2. When the plan is ready,make a schedule. Remember timetable matters a lot for this one year. Be ready to give at least 6 hours per day for the preparation.
3. Solve the questions from question banks and previous year JEE papers.
4. Repeat these steps. Follow --> Learn --> practice.
5. Also keep on revising the stuff every third week. It is also a very crucial step in your preparation.


Apart from this you can use the Pomodoro technique of study and it is very effective in manitaining the pace. All you have to do is take 50 minute study round and 10 minute break round. Do not do anything except studying in the first 50 minutes and do anything you want in the last 10 minutes. My advice would be to just take a small walk across the house.

Apart from these you can also disable notifications in your phone and that would help you in decreasing the number of checking the updates.

Thank you.
