The National Testing Agency (NTA) has started the registration process for Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2022. The registration portal is live from March 1 and will be open till March 31, 5 p.m. The students can register themselves on the official website. The last date to pay the fee is also March 31. This year, the NTA has introduced a 3-step registration process, along with many changes with respect to last year's exam.
Since the JEE Main 2022 will be conducted in two sessions – April and May, the NTA has provided the examination application forms separately for all sessions. According to the official notification, NTA has also released the exam dates, eligibility, pattern, syllabus and other details on its official website. Session 1 of JEE Main 2022 is scheduled for April 16 to 21 and session 2 will be conducted from May 24 to 29, 2022.
No facility of form correction for JEE Main 2022 applications, as per NTA’s notification. Therefore, students must fill out their JEE Main 2022 application forms very carefully.
The test will be conducted in two sessions, instead of four. So, during registration, first only session 1 (April) will be visible. The window for Session 2 (May) registration will open again briefly before the test.
The registration process is divided into 3-steps. In stage 1, candidates need to register to get their application number and password. In stage 2, they need to fill out their personal details, apply for the session, upload a photo, etc. In the last stage, they need to pay the fee.
Candidates will get to choose the exam cities based on the permanent and present addresses they have provided in the application forms.
JEE Main 2022 will have negative marking in both Section A (MCQs) and section B (numerical). Earlier there was no negative marking for section B. Also, candidates will be required to attempt any 5 questions out of 10 in section B.
Scribes will be provided to physically handicapped candidates by the NTA only.
