Q1: What is the advantage of twice a year exam?

A: There are many. Here we are listing a few of them:

  • You will have two chances to perform.
  • You can appear in either exam if you are unable to appear in any one of them.
  • Also, if you feel you couldn’t do better on the first exam, you can learn from your mistakes and do well in the second one.

Q2: How will NTA Calculate the Result, given that there will be 8 sittings in both January and April Exam?

A: For the 8 sittings, NTA will use a standardised method to calculate the scores. This will eliminate any irregularity in difficulty level that may be existing in all the 8 sittings. Now, only one AIR will be published after both the exams. Candidates will be ranked on the basis of their best scores out the two exams.

Q3: Does the criteria of 75% marks in boards still valid?

A: Yes, it is still valid.

Q4: If the examinations are in online mode only, how will we attend the drawing questions in Paper 2?

A: Do not worry, like NATA, NTA might provide sheets to attempt the drawing questions.

Q5: I am giving JEE for the third time. So I wanted to know that, can I appear in both January and April exam? Or if I give January exam it will be counted as my third attempt?

A: See, logically speaking, you must be able to give both the exams. As the score of one will be used for AIR and admission, it seems that both the attempts will be counted as one and not two. But we think we should wait for the detailed information brochure.
