The National Testing Agency (NTA) has made available the official JEE Main Syllabus for 2020. This year onwards, JEE Main will be held in 3 papers –

Paper 1 – Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics

Paper 2 – Mathematics, Aptitude, Drawing

Paper 3 – Mathematics, Aptitude Test and Planning Based Questions

Here are some more modifications which have been made this year onwards:

  • Number of questions: The number of questions per section has been reduced from 30 to 25. Also, 5 questions out of the 25 will be numerical with the rest 20 being multiple-choice.
  • Number of attempts per year: The candidates will be allowed to appear for the exam twice a year. The best of the two scores will be considered final.
  • B.Planning – For the very first time, B.Planning will be held separately. It will be conducted in three parts: Mathematics, Aptitude and Planning-based multiple-choice questions.

The National Testing Agency will be declaring the JEE Main Cutoff 2020 post the declaration of the JEE Main results. The cutoffs will be of two types- qualifying cutoff and admission cutoff.

Qualifying Cutoff is the minimum marks that a candidate must score in order to qualify for JEE Advanced. It will be released along with the declaration of JEE April Session result.

Admission Cutoff is the minimum rank a candidate must get in order to obtain admission into JEE Main participating institutes. It will be declared by the Joint Seat Allocation Authority also known as JoSAA. That’s all for now. Wish to know more? Visit BYJU’S.
