Things to keep in mind
Check the admit card carefully for your Name, Paper, Date of Birth, Gender, Test Centre Name, City, State Code of Eligibility and Category. If there is any discrepancy, communicate to JEE (Main) Secretariat/CBSE immediately for requisite action.
It may be noted that the admit Card is issued provisionally to the candidate subject to his/her satisfying the eligibility conditions.
They are advised to reach the venue at least two and half hours before the examination so as to complete the frisking and registration formalities before the examination time. Registration desk closes five minutes before the examination.
The candidate must show, on demand, the Admit Card for admission in the examination room/hall.
The Ministry of Human Resource Development has notified following changes in the JEE pattern from 2017:
1-There shall be no weightage for the 12th class marks in calculating the ranks in the JEE (Main) examination.
2-For the candidates to qualify for the admission in the IITs/NITs/IIITs and such other CFTIs whose admissions are based on the JEE (Advanced)/JEE(Main) ranks, they should have secured at least 75% marks in the 12th class examination, or be in the top 20 percentile in the 12th class examination conducted by the respective Boards. For SC/ST students the qualifying marks would be 65% in the 12th class examination.
The states of Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Uttrakhand, Nagaland, Odisha & some other institutions have joined JEE (Main) system, however, their admission criteria will be notified by the concerned authorities.
Therefore, the candidates seeking admission to the institutions in these states, which were earlier admitting based on their state level examination, are also advised to fill in the JEE (Main)–2018 application form online.
The Paper-1 (BE/BTech) of JEE (Main) will also be an eligibility test for the JEE (Advanced), which the candidate has to take if he/she is aspiring for admission to the undergraduate programmes offered by the IITs.
Since there is no weightage of class 12th marks in calculation of ranks in JEE (Main) – 2018, so, the roll number of class 12th is not verified this year by the CBSE, however, the candidates have to show the marksheet of class 12th (regular/improvement) with 75% marks at the reporting centres at the time of counselling/admission in IITs/NITs/IIITs and other CFTIs.
