JEE Main 2019: Exam date, eligibility, syllabus, application, fees, counselling details

JEE Main 2019: The exam will be held over many days and students will have the option to choose a date. Moreover, if a student appears for the exam twice, the best of his/ her two scores will be taken into account.

The Union Government’s most popular competitive exams, JEE (Main) and NEET will be held twice a year now by the National Testing Agency (NTA), said Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar last week. All these tests were earlier organised by the CBSE. The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main for undergraduate admission into various engineering colleges will be held in January and April.

In another significant change, these exams will be held over many days and students will have the option to choose a date. Moreover, if a student appears for the JEE (Main) and NEET twice, the best of his/ her two scores will be taken into account.

“The main feature is that students will not lose one year because there will be two examinations before admission. He/ she can appear in either of the two, or both. The best score will be taken into account for the result,” Javadekar later tweeted.

Eligibility Criteria

A score of at least 75 per cent in class 12 board exams or a place among the top 20 percentile of the Boards is required to be eligible for JEE main or advanced. For candidates of the SC and ST categories, this has been lowered to 65 per cent.
