JEE Main Exam 2020 - 21


Table of contents


Every year lakhs of students sit for the JEE entrance exams. These exams that are held biannually each year already saw 8, 74,469 students appear for the exams in the first lap of the January 2019 exams. The second phase of the JEE exams have kicked off in April and the number of aspiring students has only increased.

Ever since the National Testing Agency (NTA) has taken over the supervision from the CBSE board, a lot of flexibility and options have come in for the students applying to it from all over the world. Earlier these exams were held only once a year but now they are help twice a year and that too with flexible timings. There are 2 time slots that have been approved for the students. The first phase is from 9:30 am to 12:30 and the second time slot is from 2:30 to 5:30 pm.

From a whooping number of 9.4 lakh, the numbers have reached that of 1.61 crore for the April intake. To meet the requirement of the increasing numbers the numbers of centers have gone up to 470 in 267 cities, including 9 that are present abroad. Earlier these exams were held only once a year but now they are help twice a year and that too with flexible timings. There are 2 time slots that have been approved for the students.

In the wake of minimizing paper usage and also because of everything going online, NTA has also taken advanced measures. From now on all the papers will be available online and the students will have to appear online. The only paper format is that for the B.Arch. paper which consists of drawing work as well. For the April exams the dates have been set from 8th to 12th April, with the same two time slots. Another thing to be mindful about is the fact that only those students who clear the JEE main exams are eligible to sit for the JEE Advanced examination.  

Since there are a number of students who appear for this exam from overseas, they need to keep in mind that these timings are based on Indian Standard Timing (IST). This means that irrespective of the time zone that a student is already in, if they wish to sit for the JEE exams it will be as per the IST timing. To help student’s overseas askIITians has a number of centers where they can go for any further assistance. Our centers are present in the following locations:

  • UAE
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Qatar

What the students had to say after taking the April 2019 JEE exams:

The first reactions are out of the exam takers for the April 2019 lot, and this is what they have to say about the papers.

  • The overall paper was quite simple; however, the questions in the Mathematics section gave most of the students a tough time.
  • Some students who were reappearing after the January session, found the papers comparatively easier. Chemistry was easy but the physics section was the slightly tricky one.
  • The whole paper was easy to deal with and took less than 3 hours to complete. Out of physics, chemistry and math, chemistry seemed to be the toughest compared to the paper of physics and math.
  • Divyanshee felt that the overall difficulty level was easy since Physics had numerous numeric questions and Chemistry section was rather easy.
