JEE Main 2020: National Testing Agency – NTA conducts JEE Main for admission to undergraduate engineering programs like B.E./B.Tech. and B.Arch/B. Planning programs at NITs, IIITs, other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTI), Institutions funded by participating State Governments. JEE Main is also the qualifying exam for JEE Advanced based on which admission is provided for B.E./B.Tech. programs offered in IITs. JEE Main 2020 is conducted in two sessions – January exam sessions followed by April. Candidates can appear in both exam sessions but best of the two exams scores of candidates to be considered for All India Rank. On an average each year nearly 9 lakh candidates registered for exam session of JEE Main. Last year, a total 8,74,469 candidates appeared in January while 8,81,096 candidates appeared in April session exam.
JEE Main 2020 is conducted for admission to nearly 25000 B.Tech/B.E. seats offered in 69 institutes including NITs, IIITs and GFTIs. Moreover, JEE Main result is also the basis for selecting top 2,45,000 for appearing in JEE Advanced for admission for nearly 11279 seats in 23 IITs. Apart from these, the JEE Main score is accepted by certain self-financed universities and institutions. Earlier, JEE Main was conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). From 2019 onward, the National Testing Agency (NTA), the newly formed body, will conduct the exam. Also, the exam will be conducted twice a year, in January and April, giving students an opportunity to improve their score without having to drop a year. Furthermore, JEE Main will be conducted online in computer-based mode. It is not mandatory to appear for the exam both the times (January and April). In case a student appears for the exam both the times, the better of the two scores will be considered for admission/counselling.
JEE Main is also the qualifying exam for JEE Advanced. IITs do not accept JEE Main score for B.Tech admission and, hence, students aspiring to get themselves enrolled in IITs will also have to appear for JEE Advanced. A student will be allowed to appear for JEE Advanced only if he clears the JEE Main cut off. A vast majority of students find JEE Main to be tough and difficult to crack. The number of students appearing for JEE Main increases each year, which also increases the competition. In order to crack JEE Main and get into India’s top colleges, a student requires determination, perseverance and smart preparation.
JEE Main is conducted for two papers: Paper 1 (B.Tech) and Paper 2 (B.Arch/ B.Plan). Students preparing for Engineering should opt for Paper 1 and those preparing for Architecture should opt for Paper 2. Online applications of JEE Main 2020 for January session will be likely to begin from September first week. The admit card will be released in the last week of December. The online exam will be held conducted in the second week of January and to results declared by the February first week.
States like Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Odisha, Uttarakhand, Haryana, Bihar and Nagaland as well many other private universities and institutes accept JEE Main rank for admission for B.Tech/B.E. or B.Arch/B. Planning programs. The admission criteria for these will be notified by the concerned authorities at time JEE Main notification.

JEE Main 2016 cut off
The JEE Main 2016 paper was easier than in 2015, which should increase the cut offs. However, since more students are going to be shortlisted (2 lac instead of 1.5 lac), the net cut offs will be lower than that of the previous year.
The pie charts for each of the subjects below show how certain chapters have been more important than others in this year’s exam. Moreover, by using Embibe’s Learn Digest Question Pack, students would have gained a leg up during preparation. Concepts and questions from 80% of the top 15 chapters in Mathematics were represented in the Digest, as were 66.7% of Physics chapters and 53.3% of Chemistry chapters.
