About Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main

The JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) is one of the most competitive engineering entrance exams conducted at the national level for admission to B.E./B.Tech & B.Arch courses. The exam is conducted in two stages, namely JEE (Main) and JEE (Advanced). The JEE Main exam is regulated by the NTA (National Testing Agency) twice a year to select candidates for admission into various government, centrally-funded and private engineering institutions.

By qualifying the JEE (Main) exam, students can get admission into the Undergraduate Engineering programmes in NIT’s (National Institute of Technology), IIIT’s (Indian Institute of Information Technology) and CFTI’s (Centrally Funded Technical Institutes). They can also appear for the JEE (Advanced) to get admission into the eminent IITs (Indian Institutes of Technology). Besides IITs, reputed institutions such as IISER (Indian Institution of Science Education and Research), Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology and the Indian Institute of Science also enrol students on the basis of their marks in JEE (Advanced).

About JEE Main 2020

The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has established NTA as an “independent autonomous and self-sustained premier testing organisation” for conducting “efficient, transparent and international standard tests in order to assess the competency of candidates for admissions to premier higher education institutions”. From 2019 onwards, the Department of High Education (DHE) has entrusted the responsibility of conducting the JEE Main exam to the National Testing Agency.

The JEE Main 2020 will be conducted twice (January and April) before admissions in the next academic session. The JEE Main January 2020 exam was conducted between 6th and 11th January. The April examination has been scheduled to be conducted in July due to novel Coronavirus disease. Here are some benefits students will make the most out of the new pattern –

  • Candidates will have one more opportunity to improve their scores. For instance, if some candidates fail to score big in the January session, they can bounce back and improve their scores in the April session, without wasting their whole academic year.
  • The best of the two JEE Main scores will be considered for ranking/ merit list.
  • For candidates appearing for the first time, they will get a first-hand experience of taking the entrance test. This will help them understand the process, know their mistakes and prepare accordingly while attempting for the second time.
  • Failing to appear the examination due to reasons beyond control won’t make you wait for one full year.

The examination will be held in both CBT and offline modes. B.E./ B.Tech./ B. Arch (Maths Part I)/ B.Planning (Maths Part I)/Aptitude Test (Part II)/ Planning Based Questions (Part II/I) will be conducted in the Computer Based Test.

JEE Main 2018 Cut Off

Top Preparation Tips and Highly-Recommended Books to Crack JEE Main

The Union Minister of Human Resource Development (MHRD) Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ announced that the JEE Main exam dates would be held from 01st September to 06th September 2020. With the extension of the exam commencement dates, eligible candidates avail themselves more preparation time. Considering only 40 days to go for the exam, good preparation is still possible to secure a good percentile and higher AIR rank.

You must have been well-versed with the syllabus of JEE Main April 2020. Either you are already well-prepared or well-prepared but gaps and loopholes or not quite prepared.

  • Well-Prepared candidates are eagerly waiting for the exam. These aspirants just need to maintain a high level of preparedness for the rest of the days. It can be challenging for them.
  • Well-Prepared But with Loopholes and Gaps: These types of candidates have managed it pretty well till now. With a few more days in hands, they are gearing up with more grace. They will leave no stone unturned to fix those loopholes and uplift their preparation level.
  • Still, a Long Way to Go: Such aspirants hit six on the last ball. They can wait (as they have a strong IQ level) and can catch up fast. Although they have a long way, they are confident enough to make the most of this lockdown period.

What to Keep in Mind while Preparing for JEE Main 2020?

  • Understand the JEE Main exam pattern and syllabus (NTA has introduced one more paper to the existing exam pattern. It will now conduct the exam in three papers. Talking about the syllabus, one must be well aware of all three important subjects Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry of Class 11th and 12th. It will be easier to prepare for the exam.)
  • You need to refer to good books. Some of the books recommended by experts are – Mathematics (Maths XI & XII by NCERT, Coordinate Geometry by S. L. Loney, Higher Algebra by Hall & Knight, Problems in Calculus of One Variable by I.A. Maron and Trigonometry by S. L. Loney), Physics (Fundamentals of Physics by Halliday, Problems in General Physics by I.E. Irodov, Resnick & Walker and Concepts of Physics Vol I and II by H.C. Verma) and Chemistry (Organic Chemistry by Paula Bruice Yurkanis, Inorganic Chemistry by J.D. Lee, Organic Chemistry by Morrison & Boyd and Numerical Chemistry by P. Bahadur)
  • It is time for revision. Students must remember that the questions can be tricky, thus clarity of concept and familiarity of question types is essential. Refer to good books, important notes and formulae, watch video lectures and attend online sessions.

Put more thoughts on Mathematics XI (Absolute Value, Logarithm, Straight Line, Quadratic Equation, Circle and trigonometric ration & identity) and XII (Vectors & 3D, Complex Numbers, Conic Section, Properties of Triangle, Definite integral, Application of derivatives, Permutation & Combination and Matrices).

While preparing for Physics, dedicate more time to these chapters – Atomic Structure, Thermodynamics and Radioactivity. Candidates may like to work more on Mechanics, Optics and Electrostatics. Most of the topics (Chemical reactions and Inorganic Chemistry) in Chemistry demand practice by writing for better memorisation. Topics like Environment Chemistry need to read several times.

  • Dedicating more time in the mock test will help you assess yourself for the examination. Appear in the computer-based mock test (All India Level), solve questions with your analytical skills and reasoning, stick to previous year question papers and develop a test-taking strategy – it will help you get acclimatised with the test environment.
