National Testing Agency (NTA) has begun the application process for second JEE Main exam of the year. JEE Main (II) will be held between April 5 and April 7 and between April 9 and April 11. The results will be available by the end of April 2020.
The decision to conduct JEE Main exam twice was taken in 2018 and the exam was held twice for the first time in 2019. Both the tines, the exam followed the same pattern and adhered to the same difficulty level.
In 2020, in addition to the two exams, NTA introduced some other vital changes to the structure of the exam. Applicants need to be aware of the changes to not make any mistakes during the application process.
An important change which students need to know is that NTA has increased the number of papers for which JEE Main exam is conducted from 2 to 3.
From 2020 onward, NTA will hold JEE Main exam for an additional paper which is meant for students seeking admission in B.Planning programme. The rationale behind adding a separate paper is to cater to the different skills required for the course. Just like the paper II (for B.Arch. course) which has drawing based questions, paper III will have Planning based questions.
