JEE Main 2019 Question Paper Analysis

JEE Main 2019 was conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA). The examination was conducted online. In short, it was a Computer Based Test (CBT). This year NTT decided to conduct the examination twice in a year, one was conducted between 8th January and 12th January whereas another was conducted between April 07, 2019 and April 20, 2019. It was the first time ever that the JEE Main is being conducted twice in a year for engineering aspirants. 


The motive behind conducting the JEE Main 2022 exam twice in a year is that students, who fail to give their best in the first attempt, can get a second opportunity to perform better in the second attempt in April. The final merit list or ranking was calculated by considering the student’s best score of the two JEE Main examinations.


JEE Main is considered to be one of the most challenging entrance examinations for engineering at the undergraduate level. Based on their scores obtained in JEE Main, the candidates are eligible for JEE Advanced examination.

JEE Main 2019 Overview (January & April)

JEE Main 2019 overview for both papers is given in the table below. A total of 90 questions were asked in the examination with 4 marks for each question based on the syllabus prescribed by the National Testing Agency.
