JEE Main Notification 2020


Table of Content

JEE Main Notification 2020 is out! It will be conducted by the JEE Apex Board to screen students for undergraduate engineering programmes at NITs, IITs, other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs) and institutions of the states participating in the exam system.

From last year, the states of Maharashtra, Odisha and Gujarat have also joined the examination system. Thus, JEE Main 2015 has replaced the state-level entrance exams, such as Maharashtra CET, Odisha JEE and GUJCET – for admission to the engineering institutes of these states too.

JEE Main is also the eligibility test for JEE Advanced, which leads to admission in the undergraduate programmes of the IITs or ISM Dhanbad.

JEE Main merit list or rank list gives 60% weightage to JEE Main scores and 40% weightage to the normalized marks of the 10+2 board examination

JEE Main 2020 Application Form

The JEE Mains notification specifically states that students can only apply for the 2020 exam online.  JEE Main 2020 will be held twice a year. For candidates wishing to apply for JEE Main (January 2020) needs to fill the forms in the month of September 2020. Whereas, candidates applying for JEE Main (April 2020), candidates can fill the application form in the month of February / March  2020. The online application process has been started from September 2nd, 2020. The last date for online application form submission for JEE Main will be September 30th, 2019.

Since the eligibility criteria for JEE Main and JEE Advanced are different, students should check whether they are eligible for both the exams or not – if they are targeting IITs.

To help JEE aspirants, JEE Main secretariat will set up facilitation centres all over India which will help students fill up online application form for free. The list of these facilitation centres can be found in the JEE Main information bulletin as well as on its official website.
