  1. What about attempts? I still don’t understand about them. For ex. If we take this year jee mains in January and April will it be counted as 1 attempt.

  2. Can you plz tell me about attempt? Will we have 6 chances now in total for jee mains. For ex. If we take jee mains exam in January and April will it be counted as 1 attempt.

  3. Sir,

    I have read the NTA First press release and have clarifications and suggestions on some of the points

    1) Need clarification on

    “The two tests (each for JEE (Main) & NEET (UG)) will be equated using
    psychometric methods, standardisation techniques and best of the
    equated scores will be used for the admissions. ”

    “Scores of different candidates
    in multiple sittings will also be equated using standardisation
    techniques. ”

    Means., a student can write 2 tests and the best scored mark will be taken into account. right?.

    2) Students are appearing for the Board Exams under heavy pressure and NTA conducts 2 tests before completion of board exams. If the results of the Tests are declared before the board exam, the students will loose their energy and mentally loose their confidence, mental agony in writing the Board Exams which results poor performance.

    Hence, it is requested not to release the Results before the Board Exam is completed in order to prepare for Board Exam peacefully.

  4. Sir i am citizen of Nepal and passed my 12 from India cbse 2017-18 .and i have not got adhar card so please guide me or let me know document required.
