The eligibility criteria for JEE Main 2020 includes educational qualification, age limit, number of attempts and state eligibility.
It has been recently announced that there will be a decrease in the number of questions of Physics, Chemistry and Maths. Students need to do their preparations according to the new structure of the exam.
The conducting body has also introduced a separate paper for B.Planning in JEE Main 2020, increasing the number of papers from two to three. Earlier, there used to be two papers. Paper 1 was for those students who wished to take admission in B.tech courses and paper 2 was for those who wished to get into B.Arch or B.Planning courses. The students appearing for JEE Main have the freedom to choose if they wish to take up all three papers, two papers or just one paper.
