What’s New in JEE Main 2019?

What’s new in JEE Main 2019? Let’s read further to find answer for this question. With the introduction of the National testing agency or NTA post 12th, two national level major exams will be conducted twice in a year. JEE Main and NEET. For these two-time exams, students can perform their best. JEE main for B.tech and B.E and NEET for MBBS and BDS course. 

  • Aadhaar card is not mandatory to fill the online application form of JEE Main 2019. The applicants can enter any valid government identity number in the online application form of JEE Main 2019.
  • JEE Main (undergraduate engineering exam) will be conducted twice in a year, to give more chance to the candidates.
  • NTA will conduct the exam (twice in a year) using psychometric methods, standardization techniques, and other best techniques which will equate the scores for admissions.
  • Conduct of exam twice in a year will also lead to less stress among the students, and will also decrease the pressure of exam (in case of single conduct of exam).
  • It must be noted that it is not necessary to sit in both the exams. Candidates can register themselves for the second exam if in case they have missed the dates for the first exam or have not qualified the first exam.
  • From now onwards, JEE Main will be purely a computer-based test.
  • As per their convenience and preference, applicants will also be able to choose dates for the exam as there will be multiple settings for this engineering entrance test.
  • Scores secured by the candidates in multiple sittings will be equated by NTA, using the standardization techniques.
  • NTA will use highly secured IT software and encryption, in order to ensure delivery of exam in described test time and to ensure no malpractices and leakage of the paper.
  • Candidates from rural areas will be able to practice at the computer centres, 4 months before the conduct of exam, to be established by NTA.
  • At the identified practice centres, any student will be able to use the facility free of any charge on Saturdays and Sundays.

What could be the impact of these implications?

  • Conduct of JEE Main twice a year will help candidates to only focus on their preparations, instead of getting stressful for the exam. As conduct of exam twice in the same academic year will give candidates two chances to appear for the exam and conquer themselves in JEE Main.
  • The sole responsibility of NTA will be to conduct all the other competitive exams along with JEE Main. This decision is taken by MHRD to make the process of conduction of exams smoother and less error-prone.
  • The major impact of this implication would be that it would reduce the paper leaking incidences.
  • Under the supervision of CBSE, there were frequent conceptual and typing mistakes in the exam. It is expected that under the supervision of NTA they may reduce.
  • Preparation and declaration of results will become smooth and prompt.
  • Candidates belonging to rural areas may suffer a bit due to less knowledge and exposure to computers. But to compensate this, NTA will be setting up mock test centres for the help of such students, which will be available on weekends free of any cost.

National Testing Agency (NTA)

    Approved by the Union Cabinet in November 2017, NTA is a newly formed examination authority. It will be a self-sustaining premier testing agency to take up the responsibility of conduction of various higher educational institutions examinations in India. In the terms of conduction of exams, NTA will be taking over the supervision from CBSE. Representatives from CBSE, UGC, NCERT, AICTE, HRD will be included in NTA. Rather than waiting for another year for the conduct of exam, under NTA the aspirants will get a choice to prepare for the exams as per their preference and convenience.
