A Complete Guide on Joint Entrance Examination (JEE)

New Delhi’s Ministry of Human Resource Development , Government of India, and Central Board of Secondary Education ( CBSE) introduced the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) at the national level for admission to various engineering colleges in India.

JEE Main examination was being conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) till 2018. The National Testing Agency (NTA) will be granted the authority to administer the JEE (Joint Entrance Examination) key test from 2019 onwards. The major development in JEE Main is the exam will be held twice a year for admission to Undergraduate Engineering Programmes in IITs, NIT’s, IIIT’s and other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions.

The Joint Entrance Exam takes place in two stages-JEE Main and JEE Advanced. JEE (Main) replaced the AIEEE entry review, and JEE (Advanced) replaced the IIT-JEE entry test. More than 25,000 seats in Engineering and Architecture are filled each year through the JEE Main score.

The goal of the popular entrance test was to alleviate the burden on students who have to appear for multiple entrance exams and offer greater importance to school education , in particular the board exams of Class 12.

National Testing Agency (NTA)

NTA was established as a leading, specialist, autonomous, and self-sustained testing organization to conduct admission / fellowship entrance examinations in higher education institutions. It is a newly formed body by the centre to conduct prestigious entrance examinations such as JEE Main and NEET UG. The Organization now has the power to administer the electronic style entrance exams from 2019 onwards with all rights.

Here are some of the changes in JEE Main examination after the introduction of NTA. 

  • Applicants will only have to appear in online mode for JEE Main from the year 2019 onwards, however for one issue an applicant would have Pen and Paper dependent mode to apply on the drawing pad.
  • Aspirants would have double the chance, more potential, twice a year NTA will be executing JEE Main.
  • Thanks to the versatility and availability of sittings from January 08 to January 20 and April 07 to April 20, candidates may choose suitable slots to appear in the test.
  • Students will have more time to prepare for their entrance exam because the exam will take place in the month of January and April.
  • The test centers were 258, which included 248 review centers in India and 9 centers abroad.
  • In case of students who have appeared in both exams, the best of the two scores will be taken into account for the result.
  • Around 3000 practise test centres for JEE aspirants to train them for computer-based examination, which will be functioning from August 2018. 
  • There should be a standardization method to get equal outcomes for measuring ratings.

How to Approach JEE Main Question Paper? Section-wise Ideal Attempts

With the increasing competition in JEE Main, it is a must for the candidates to set specific targets. Here are some section-wise tips which can assist you in finding the accurate paper attempting approach: 

  1. Mathematics: Mathematics level has been easy to moderate for 3 years and topics like Matrices, Vector 3D, Determinants are some of the high scoring topics. Questions from Height and Distance and Trigonometry have not been asked from these chapters in recent years.

A person is likely to score 45-50 marks if he/she attempts 20 questions in Mathematics with 60% accuracy provided the candidate attempts all integer questions(non-negative questions). More emphasis should be laid on attempting integer questions rather than single choice questions.

  1. Physics: For the last 5 years, Physics has been the toughest section of all which includes a lot of lengthy questions. The numerical part of the paper is generally asked from 11th standard whereas the conceptual part is mostly from 12th standard. One must concentrate more on the latter as it is a comparatively scoring part. 

With a 70% accuracy, if a candidate attempts 15 questions of the Physics section, he/she can score more than 30 marks.

  1. Chemistry: The Chemistry section is believed to be the easiest one where organic and inorganic questions are more of a conceptual type. These questions should be given more focus due to direct correspondence with respective options.

If a candidate is able to attempt 22 Chemistry questions with 80% accuracy, he/she can score more than 60 marks.

JEE Main 2020 Syllabus

JEE Main Syllabus is released by NTA on the official website i.e. jeemain.nta.nic.in/ nta.ac.in. Paper 1 Syllabus for JEE Main will cover topics from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics.

How to prepare for JEE Main 2020?

One of the biggest questions asked is how to make the JEE Main preparation plan. After segregating the topics, it’s vital to know the weightage. While all topics are equally important, some topics have importance as many questions are generally asked from there. Check the topper interviews, previous year papers to understand the weightage of the topics to make the plan.

Some guidelines while making the JEE Main 2020 Preparation Plan

  • Give equal weightage to all topics.
  • Distribute the time needed to study it. Give more time to difficult topics and less to the ones you just need to revise.
  • Ensure you have scheduled revision time in the plan.

Action Plan to Prepare for JEE Main 2020

  • Study a chapter and understand the concepts. NCERT books are good for this.
  • While studying, make sure to note important points and formulas. These short notes will be useful during revision.
  • After studying a chapter or topic, check how much you can recollect and to what extent you have understood the topic.
  • Then practice questions based on the topic studied. While practising do not go for the solution directly. Try to solve yourself, make mistakes and then correct it. This step will help you to know how to crack JEE Main.
  • Make sure to give a JEE Main mock test after completing the subject. Similarly ensure that you appear for as many mock tests as you can so that you can analyse your preparation levels, understand where you are making the mistakes
  • Use the analysis to know your weak areas and concentrate on improving while revising.
  • Be wise and Revise – Without revision, it is difficult to crack any exam especially one like JEE Main. You can only improve if you revise.
  • Clear all your concepts, doubts. Never leave a question unanswered in your mind.
  • Put the brake and take a break – While studying is good, it’s not wise to do it continuously. So take some time off to refresh your mind before you start again. You can listen to music, play games or do what eases your brain. Physical exercise for half an hour or an hour helps in boosting the memory. Eat right.

JEE Main 2020 – Last-Minute Tips

Last days before the exam can be very stressful in terms of strategizing for the exam day. Here are some last minute tips for test takers:

  • Candidates appearing for JEE Main must have certain strategies for time management, selection of questions and accuracy. 
  • All these factors are interdependent on each other and essential for a successful attempt. 
  • Candidates should have clarity on how many questions they aim to attempt. They should also have a rough picture on what topics they can or can not attempt.
  • Aiming to solve the entire paper will only lead to disruption of clarity therefore a sequence of attempting the question paper must be chosen as per one’s own convenience.
  • Attempting Chemistry first can be beneficial as the questions can be addressed quicker so aspirants can have more time to attempt Physics and Mathematics sections.
  • Candidates must try to attempt graph-based questions as they are easy in terms of attempting. They can be approached with different parameters like inserting values etc to eliminate wrong options.
