NTA to Conduct JEE Mains 2019! What Has Changed And How Should You Cope?

Isn’t it strange? Half of the nation is immersed in intense discussions about JEE Mains 2019 right now. But why, you’d think. Let us explain . . .

Every year, around 11 lakh students appear for the JEE Mains exam. Now that the exam body for JEE Mains has changed from CBSE to NTA, all these 11 lakh students are talking about it. A change of this stature is often followed by confusions and speculations, so even their families, friends, relatives, school authorities, tuition teachers (and probably their pets too) are talking about it. Needless to mention how the media has gone gaga over a news like this. Everyone has an opinion, and no one is too shy to express it.

So, as an exam taker, who should you listen to? If you were even a tiny bit serious about cracking JEE Mains 2019, your preparations must have started ages back. What should you do now? Carry on with your studies, of course! But what if the syllabus changes? And is it true that the exam mode has changed? OK, at least tell me that the exam pattern will remain the same!

Tormenting thoughts like this can make you go insane with anxiety! Don’t let that happen.

Stay informed, stay focused! You will do great. . .

NTA to Hold JEE Mains? Is That True?

Well, it is. As announced by HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar, JEE Main 2019 will be conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA). The exams will be conducted in online mode twice a year from 2019 onwards. There have been no sudden or drastic updates about change in syllabus, question format, language or exam fees from either NTA or CBSE (the body that has been holding JEE Mains till the last year). It is safe to assume that no abrupt changes will be declared, as both CBSE and NTA are responsible exam bodies and won’t cause unnecessary inconvenience to the students appearing for JEE Main 2019. Nonetheless, if such changes are to be announced in the future, you can count on us to keep you updated.

So, JEE Mains To Be Held Twice A Year. Changes in Number of Attempts?

Until now, students appearing for JEE Mains could appear for 3 consecutive attempts to clear the exam. This meant students could appear for JEE Mains for 3 consecutive years. But now, NTA will be conducting exams twice a year. What does this necessarily mean? Will it affect the number of attempts that students will be allowed to take? If it does, then how exactly? Well, there has been no official notification about it, so far. But, for now, don’t you stress over this. Focus solely on preparations. It is safe to assume that students who appeared for JEE 2018, will be allowed to appear for both the attempts in 2019. We are expecting both CBSE and NTA to handle changes responsibly without causing inconvenience to the exam takers. And, we believe they won’t let us down.

What Are The Exam Dates For JEE Main 2019?

Now, this is where it gets a bit tricky. Remember what we said about exam being held twice a year? This also means that there will be two sets of exam dates, registration dates, form fill ups, admit cards and pretty much everything else. Let’s try not to get confused here.

Exams to Be Held Only In Online Mode. What Now?

There have been whispers that NTA will conduct JEE Main exams only in the online mode. Does that mean that 2019 onward there will be no offline exam for JEE Main? Possibly! Will that change question paper pattern? This, only time can tell. The idea to stay updated and follow official notifications closely. But here’s the upside, JEE Mains has been conducted in the online mode earlier also. In fact, every year candidates had the choice of selecting between the online and the offline mode. So, it’s not entirely new. To be on the safe side, take your time to get friendly with the online interface. Improve your relationship with the keypad and the mouse, if you think you need to. You can do this by taking more and more online mock test for JEE Main 2019. And, just so you know, conducting exams in the online mode will eradicate printing errors and eliminate chances of the paper leak. So, it’s not that bad, you see!

Will the syllabus change for JEE Main 2019?

Until now, since CBSE was the exam body for JEE Main 2019, the trick was to fall back on the CBSE prescribed NCERT Solutions. But will all that change now? Well, that’s a fair question. And unfortunately, there has been no official notification about this either. But, to tell you the truth, our experts are of the opinion that even if the syllabus is altered, the change will be minor. JEE Main is the entrance exam for engineering students, the purpose of which is to gauge the technical and conceptual expertise of the student. There is not much room for change here. Thankfully, the concepts and laws of science are will remain the same, even if the body conducting the exam changes. That’s good news, isn’t it? So, pay no heed to speculations, and focus only on your studies. If it’s not an official notification, it’s not worth pondering over.

Expert tip: Completing the JEE Main syllabus as soon as possible. When you have ample time left in hand, you need not to worry about a couple of additions to the syllabus, if there are any, later on.
