FAQs related to JEE Main previous year question paper

Q. Is 210 in JEE mains a good score?

A. Previous years' statistics indicated that a high JEE Main percentile or score was required to enter JEE Advanced. According to the above information, aspirants must get at least 200 - 210 points (general category) in JEE Main to be qualified for the JEE Advanced exam.

Q. Does JEE Main include any questions that are repeated?

A. JEE main questions are not repeated. Sometimes the fundamental concept is the same. The same question, on the other hand, never repeats itself; nonetheless, there is a 1-2 percent possibility that the question will be asked again.

Q. How difficult is it to pass JEE Mains?

A. JEE Main is regarded as one of India's most difficult exams, requiring perseverance and dedication to succeed. Aspirants begin their preparations from class 11 to score better and best marks in the test.

Q. Is it possible to pass JEE by solving prior year's papers?

A. JEE Main aspirants who prepare previous year's papers, according to experts, have a good probability of passing the exam. Candidates can learn about the advantages of solving previous year papers for JEE Main 2021 in this post. On the official website, NTA will also offer the JEE Main 2021 sample examinations.

Q. Will prior-year papers suffice in the JEE mains?

A. NCERT (both 11th and 12th grades) and previous year JEE Mains papers are adequate to achieve a score of 200 or higher in MAINS. Solving previous IITJEE examinations is a significant plus because 3-4 problems with identical alternatives are guaranteed to be repeated every year.

Q. Is it enough to study previous year papers for JEE Advanced?

A. There are no previous year questions that are sufficient for JEE advanced. For JEE Advanced preparation, you must answer as many questions as possible, clear all of your fundamentals, and work through some solid coaching materials for extra math practise.

No all the deemed Universities don't ask for JEE marks they just need that you have appeared in JEE exams. They don't ask for marks for JEE. But some deemed Universities ask for JEE scores for admission in engineering field in any department.

Hello, The window will open and you will be able to correct some fields. To help you, I am attaching a link that will give you information in detail about various aspects of correction and correction window that is provided by NTA to applicants. https://www.shiksha.com/engineering/articles/jee-ma...Hello, The window will open and you will be able to correct some fields. To help you, I am attaching a link that will give you information in detail about various aspects of correction and correction window that is provided by NTA to applicants. https://www.shiksha.com/engineering/articles/jee-main-correction-blogId-19439
Some fields of data are not correctable but some are. When the window opens, NTA will invariably announce it via news items in different newspapers about the same. You then need to log in using your existing id/ pw and go ahead with correction. It's very simple and user-friendly utility and I am sure that you will be able to effect changes they you desire. Best wishes to you.
