Since JEE Main 2019 exam will be conducted twice – first on January 06 – 20, 2019 and then on April 06-20, 2019, CBSE is ensuring that the class 12 practical and board exam dates don’t clash with any of the two JEE Main 2019 exams. This is a very considerate move in the favor of the Class 12 board students.
Maximum of the class 12 board students appear in JEE Main exam each year, thus this move has to be made. CBSE will be releasing the class 10 and 12 board exam date sheets in the month of December 2018. This date sheet will be in harmony with the JEE Main 2019 January dates. The board may give a wider stretch for schools to conduct the Practical Examinations now, so that the window in which the JEE Main 2019 January exam is being conducted, is not a problem for the schools to conduct the board practical examinations.
National Testing Agency (NTA) the new conducting body of JEE Main from 2019 onwards is taking the exam in completely CBT mode and with a twice year exam scheme. Thus, now the engineering aspirants will be getting two attempts a year to crack the JEE Main exam. CBSE, on the other hand, was conducting the exam once a year in the month of April in both offline and online mode.
JEE Main 2019 application process is over and the registered candidates are now waiting for their admit card to be issued by NTA. The admit cards will be available in the online mode at jeemain.nic.in and at nta.ac.in from December 17, 2018. Candidates will be requiring to log in and download their admit card.
Recently, NTA has allotted the JEE Main 2019 exam date and centers to the registered candidates. The final allotment will be also mentioned on the respective admit card of the candidates.
The JEE Main 2019 Paper 1 for B.E./B.Tech admissions will be held in two shifts – 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m and 2.30 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. Candidates are required to carry their JEE Main 2019 Admit Card and a valid photo ID proof at the exam centers.
On the other hand, the JEE Main 2019 Paper 2 for B.Arch/B.Plan admissions will be held on January 08, 2019 only and in 2 shifts. JEE Main 2019 Paper 2 has 3 parts. Part 1 and Part 2 will be in online mode, whereas Part 3 (drawing) will be in offline mode.
With the last leg of preparation going on among the candidates, experts suggest that this is the peak time to practice as many JEE Main mock tests. Mock tests are a great source of preparation as they give the feel of the real exam pattern. To get used to the online interface, the mock test can be really helpful. Therefore, with one month left for JEE Main 2019 January exam, mock tests must be regularly taken.
