- One mark will be deducted for every wrong answer while for numerical-type questions there will be no negative marking.
- Aptitude test will be of 200 marks. In the drawing test for BArch which was 100 marks used to have three questions and will now have only 2 questions.
JEE Main 2020: Eligibility criteria
For BTech, a score of at least 75 percent in class 12 board exams or a place among the top 20 percentile of the Boards is required to be eligible for JEE main or advanced. For candidates of the SC and ST categories, this has been lowered to 65 percent.
Candidates should have mathematics as compulsory subject along with one of the Chemistry/Biotechnology/Biology/ Technical Vocational subject.
For BArch, candidates must have 50 percent marks in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics and also 50 percent marks in aggregate of the qualifying examination.
For B.Planning, the candidates should have passed the qualifying examination with 50 % marks in Mathematics and 50% marks in aggregate of the qualifying examination. This means candidates having commerce or Arts with Maths are also applicable to apply.
