JEE Main 2019: Exam Dates Released, Download Admit Card from March 20

The dates for the second round of JEE Main 2019 has been revised by the NTA, keeping in mind the upcoming General Elections which rolls off on April 11, 2019. The exam dates as released earlier on February 8, 2019, is scheduled from April 7 till 20. However, with the release of election dates on March 10, NTA had to get into a huddle to reschedule the JEE April 2019 so that the testing could be carried out smoothly. In the notification released on the official website, it has been clearly stated that JEE April 2019 will now be conducted between April 07, 2019 to April 12, 2019.

As evident from the above notification, Paper-2 (B.Arch. /B. Planning) of the JEE Main April 2019 under will be held on April 7 while Paper-1 (B.E. /B. Tech) will be conducted on April 8, 9, 10 and 12. Specific details regarding the Exam Centre, Date and Shift of Examination will be mentioned in the Admit Card of JEE Main exam. Candidates will be able to download their admit card from the official examination portal from March 20 onwards. Registered candidates can access their admit card using their application number and password or DOB.

The NTA has successfully conducted the first round of JEE Main during January 8 to 12, 2019 and the result of the same has been declared on January 19 (Paper-1) and January 31 (Paper–2). Candidates who have already appeared in the JEE Main January phase can re-appear in April phase to better their scores. Also, the candidates who could not appear in the January phase may appear in the upcoming April phase of the examination. Candidates who had appeared in the January phase of testing were not required to register again; instead, they had to directly apply for JEE Main April phase using their Application Number and Password. The application deadline for the JEE Main April 2019 is already over on March 7, and even the form correction window has been closed March 16 onwards.

NTA had instructed that all candidates of JEE Main January, as well as April session who falls within the EWS category, should make necessary changes in the category section of the respective online application. This correction facility was available between March 11 – 15, 2019 for including EWS category in the overall reservation structure of JEE Main as well as in other details in the form except for the choice of exam centre and choice of medium of examination.

The results for the JEE Main April 2019 is expected to be released by April 30 (Paper 1) and May 15 (Paper 2). The All India Rankings for the exam are likely to be announced by May 2019 after collating the percentile scores of all the sessions conducted over the two phases of testing. The better of the two scores of a candidate who has appeared in both phases will be considered for preparation of merit list for admission into UG programs in the NITs, IIITs and other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs), etc.

Incidentally, the candidates who took the JEE Main January 2019 test, found the papers quite similar in both question type and difficulty level with previous years’ question papers. Experts think that the cut-off scores for the current year’s admission by the JEE Main scores can be expected to remain unchanged from last year.

From 2019 onwards, the JEE Main Scores will be normalised to convert raw scores into percentiles for each candidate. Percentile score will depict a candidate’s relative performance with regards to other candidates. Candidates can calculate their percentile score by converting the scores into a scale of 100. Till 2018, the candidates were given ranks based on their raw score. Several private players in the field of JEE Coaching and allied services have their own JEE Main Rank Predictor. To use these unofficial rank predictors, candidates are required to submit the JEE Main Application Number, Date of Birth and expected JEE Main Raw Score. These Rank Predictors works on the fundamental equation that (100-JEE Main Percentile Score) X Total Number of Examinees /100. This formula will fetch an expected JEE Main Rank of the candidate in question.
