JEE Main 2022:

Joint Entrance Exam Main is the engineering entrance exam conducted by NTA for admissions to various undergraduate engineering programs of the country. It consists of two papers, paper 1 is conducted for admission in B.E./ B.Tech programs of IIITs, NITs, CFTI (Centrally Funded Technical Institutions), Institutions/Universities funded/recognized by participating State Governments. It is also the prerequisite eligibility test for JEE Advanced which is conducted to grant admissions to IITs. Paper 2 is commenced for admission to B. Arch and B. Planning courses in the Country.

As per NTA, this year the JEE Main exam will be held in two sessions, which means a candidate will have two attempts to clear JEE Main 2022.

Benefits of two attempts for JEE Main 2022:

  • To attempt means that if candidates are unable to perform well in one attempt, they will be given a second chance to enhance their exam marks.
  • With the first attempt, the students will gain first-hand experience of taking an examination and will become aware of their mistakes, which can be rectified on the second attempt.
  • The chances of dropping a year would be reduced. Droppers will not have to waste an entire year with a second attempt.
  • If a candidate misses the exam due to circumstances out of their control (such as the Board exams), they will not have to wait an entire year.
  • It is not mandatory for a candidate to attend both sessions. If a candidate appears in more than one session, the best of their JEE (Main) – 2022 scores will be taken into account when preparing the Merit List/Ranking.
