Students whose date of birth falls on or after 1 October 1994 (for general and OBC candidates) are eligible to apply for JEE Main 2019. Students belonging to SC, ST and PWD are allowed a 5-year relaxation in the upper age limit. So, students who are born on or after 1 October 1989 can also appear for JEE Main 2019 if they have the reservation benefit. To see that the age criterion is met with, the council will only and only consider the date of birth provided in the secondary education board certificate.
Students who fall under this category are required to fill in the type and percentage of disability correctly in the JEE Main 2019 Application Form.

These students will be allowed to meet the scribe a day before the exam to verify suitability. But under no circumstances will students be allowed to bring their own scribe.
