Since the exam is taking place on different days – 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 January – therefore students of upcoming exam dates are eagerly looking for question papers of exams that have concluded. Several institutes and individuals are sharing memory based questions which are compiled at JEE Main 2019 Question Paper. One by one, their answers are also being updated.

In JEE Main 2019 exam the candidates can opt between two papers. The paper I has 90 questions of 360 marks, i.e. each correct answer will give 04 marks. The questions are asked from Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics. The paper II of JEE main has questions from Maths, General Aptitude, and Drawing questions (Non-MCQ Based). The objective questions are of 04 marks and for Drawing questions the assigned marks are more than an MCQ one. Paper II is of 390 marks. Candidates were advised to practice an ample number of mocktests to get a vivid idea.

The candidates have to complete each paper 03 hours. There is negative marking in each paper of JEE Main, each occurrence of the wrong answer will deduct 1 mark. There will be no marks for unattempted questions. With the help of this marking scheme and the answer key, a candidate can estimate their scores.

Students can check their ranks of JEE Main 2019 by using various rank predictors available online. These rank predictors generally indicate the rank against JEE Main scores. There are few coaching institutes which provide rank predictors, for instance, Aaksh, Bansal, Career Joint, Allen. The importance of the rank predictors is to get a roundabout idea of the performance of the candidates in JEE Main 2019. However, candidates must not rely totally on the rank predictors as the rank predicted in the JEE Main Rank Predictor goes a notch up or down after the declaration of result.

Last year Maximum and minimum cut off marks for the general category candidates were 350 and 74 respectively. The maximum cut off marks for the candidates belonging to the OBC NCL, SC, ST, and PWD category was the same i.e. 73 and the minimum cut off marks for OBC NCL, SC, ST, and PWD category was 45, 29, 24 and -35 respectively. Total 111275, 65313, 34425, 17256 and 2765 candidates belonging to general, OBC NCL, SC, ST, and PWD category have last year qualified the JEE Main entrance test respectively.
