Re-appearing in the JEE Main Exam or Not? – Deciding Factors

NTA has decided to conduct the JEE Main exam twice a year to save students from a gap year. The final merit list for the exam will be prepared after considering the better of two scores (January session and April session).

With JEE online registration to begin on 8th February, many candidates are still in the dilemma of re-appearing in the April session exam. Here are some things to consider before filling the application form.

Candidates who appear in the top 90 percentile and above in the January 2019 session must not worry about re-appearing in the exam. Experts suggest that candidates who have attained a raw score of 250 marks must not consider in appearing for the April session exam.

Compilation of JEE Main Result

Students should also consider the process of result compilation to decide whether they have to appear for the exam or not.

For the preparation of the final merit list, the best of both the scores will be considered. In case of a tie, the merit/rank will be awarded in the following order:

  • Higher score in Mathematics/Aptitude Test for Paper-2
  • Higher score in Physics/Drawing Test for Paper-2
  • Higher score in Chemistry (for Paper-I only)
  • Candidate older in age

If the candidates will tally on all the above parameters, the same rank will be awarded to the students.

Thus, calculate your raw score in the exam using the final answer key and is you see any scope of improving your score, fill the application form for the April session. The application process will continue for a month’s duration till 7th March 2019.
