JEE Main (Joint Entrance Examination – Main) is one of the most popular common engineering entrance examinations. It is a national – level competitive examination meant for admission in undergraduate level engineering and architecture programs. JEE Main is widely well – known as an engineering common entrance examination. However, it plays an equally significant role in admission in bachelor’s level architecture degree programs in several colleges. Now, let’s talk about JEE Main 2020.
JEE Main 2020, also known as AIEEE (All India Engineering Entrance Examination) 2020, will be organised by the NTA (National Testing Agency). Earlier JEE Main used to be organised by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). But from 2019, it is organised by the NTA. JEE Main 2020 will be held as an online exam, which until 2019 was held through both online and offline media. Apart from this, JEE Main 2020 will be conducted twice, i.e., once in the January month of the year 2020 and once in the April month of the year 2020. However, until 2018, JEE Main was conducted only once in a year; but the rules changed from 2019.
JEE Main 2020’s score will be considered valid for admission in the NIT (National Institute of Technology) colleges, IIIT (Indian Institute of Information Technology) colleges and other centrally – funded technical institutes and colleges.
JEE Main 2020 Paper Pattern
At this point of time, when the JEE Main 2020 exam is already approaching, many students must be struggling in figuring out the JEE Main 2020 paper pattern. This is because the paper patterns of almost all competitive exams generally undergo several changes every year. But this is not the same in case with the JEE Main 2020 paper pattern. There exist a common JEE Main paper pattern which is being followed every year. The JEE Main 2020 paper pattern will to a great extent be based upon the last year’s JEE Main paper pattern. However, there have been a few tremendous changes that are going to be visible in the JEE Main paper pattern of the year 2020. So, let’s shed some light on the JEE Main 2020 paper pattern.
The JEE Main 2020 paper pattern will be consisting of three separate papers this time, namely, Paper I, Paper II and Paper III. The JEE Main paper I is meant for those seeking admission in B. Tech / B.E. (Bachelor of Technology / Bachelor of Engineering) programs. On the other hand, the JEE Main paper II is meant for those seeking admission in B. Arch (Bachelor of Architecture) programs, and the JEE Main paper III is meant for those seeking admission in B. Planning (Bachelor of Planning) programs. However, in the previous years, there were only two known JEE Main papers, i.e., Paper I and Paper II. Earlier, the JEE Main paper II was meant for those seeking admission in either B. Arch or B. Planning programs. But now from the year 2020, the whole style of Paper II has changed; and, from now onwards, there will be separate papers for B. Arch and B. Planning. Those appearing for JEE Main 2020 will be having an option to opt for any one or two or three of the JEE Main 2020 papers.
Have a look at the table given below to get a general idea about the JEE Main 2020 paper pattern of Paper I, Paper II and Paper III.
