The NTA would initially conduct those entrance examinations that are currently being conducted by the CBSE. Other examinations will be taken up gradually by the NTA. In this article, we will tell you what to expect this year in JEE Main 2019 with the new conducting body, NTA in the scene.

Newly formed examination authority, National Testing Agency or NTA will conduct JEE Main twice a year online from 2019 and the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has released schedule for both the editions yesterday. According to the schedule fixed by HRD ministry, the JEE Main 2019 examinations will be held in January and April.

NTA JEE Main is being held as an entrance examination for admission to engineering courses and as also a screening test for JEE Advanced, its scores have been used for admission in institutes like IITs and NITs.
Currently, the exam is held in both online and offline modes, giving students the chance to pick between the two as per their comfort. Now that the exam is expected to be conducted only in online mode, candidates need to start taking mock tests from early stages to get familiar with exam process. Another factor, i.e. the exam being conducted twice a year has its pros and cons. On one hand, a candidate now gets to rely on two attempts to score well.
The greatest confusion, however, is whether a student can or can’t appear for the exam twice in the same year. In case they can appear twice, then which of the two scorecards will be considered for admission- the better one or the latter one. Also, there will be concern over normalizing scores of candidates who appear in more than one session.
