About JEE Main Examination:
JEE Main is a vital exam for candidates as it will pave the way for entrance in premier institutes such as IITs and NITs. JEE Main scores are used as the basis for admission into institutes with technical sources funded by the centre. Candidates who are successful in their JEE Mains are then eligible to take the JEE Advanced exam.
Over 10.2 lakh students appeared for the JEE-M at 1,781 centres in 109 cities across the country this year. JEE-M is conducted in two parts- Paper I and Paper II.
Paper-I (BE/B Tech) was conducted in both computer- based (online) and paper-pen (offline) mode while Paper II (B Arch/B Planning) will be conducted in pen-paper mode only.
According to the new HRD Ministry notification, there shall be no weightage for class 12 marks in calculating the ranks in the JEE (Main) examination. For the candidates to qualify for IITs/NITs/IIITs and such other CFTIs whose admissions are based on the JEE (Advanced) /JEE(Main) ranks, they should secure at least 75% marks in class 12 exams, or be in the top 20 percentile.
