JEE (Main) – 2020

Admission criteria to Undergraduate Engineering Programs at NITs, IIITs, other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTI), Institutions funded by participating State Governments, and other Institutions shall include the performance in the class 12/equivalent qualifying Examination and in the Joint Entrance Examination, JEE (Main). The B. E. /B. Tech. of JEE (Main) will also be an eligibility test for the JEE (Advanced), which the candidate has to take if he/she is aspiring for admission to the undergraduate programs offered by the IITs

The JEE (Main)-2020 will be conducted twice before admissions in the next academic session. This will give one more opportunity to the students to improve their scores in examination if they fail to give their best in first attempt without wasting their whole academic year. In first attempt, the students will get a first-hand experience of taking an examination and to know their mistakes which they can improve while attempting for the second time. This will reduce chances of dropping a year and droppers would not have to waste a full year. If anyone missed the examination due to reasons beyond control, then he/she won’t have to wait for one full year. The student’s best of the two NTA scores will be considered for preparation of Merit List/ Ranking. The first JEE (Main) –2020 was held in January 2020 whereas the Second will be held in April 2020.
