The National Testing Agency, or NTA, has started the JEE Main 2020 from today onwards at 660 exam centers across India.

The National Testing Agency has said that reports and social media posts claiming JEE Main 2020 was not conducted at 2 centers of Uttar Pradesh are fake.


Part 1 of the Mathematics paper was held for a total of 100 marks. It had 25 questions with four marks each. The first section of the BArch Mathematics paper had 20 multiple choice questions and the second section had five numerical-based questions. For every wrong answer marked, a negative mark of 1 is to be deducted. Students, as per the JEE Main analysis, said that Numerical based questions were lengthy compared to the January session of the same paper as questions involved calculations. All the chapters were covered in calculus and coordinate geometry.

The questions in Mathematics were easy to moderate.

Part 2 of the Aptitude Section had a total of 50 multiple-choice questions. The marking system for the JEE Main Aptitude section is similar to the Mathematics section, four marks for every correct answer, and a negative mark of one for wrong answers marked. As per the students’ reaction to the level of questions asked, Aptitude had easy questions.

The Drawing Section, or Part 3, had two questions each of 50 marks. The total marks of this section were 100. One question involved drawing an aesthetic composition using rectangles and the other was any one of a “highway scene” or “portrait of your favorite teacher”. As per the students’ reaction to the level of questions asked, the Drawing section was easy.

The Joint Entrance Examination Main (JEE Main) has started today for over 1 lakh BArch candidates. The paper carried a total of 400 marks. According to experts, the BArch paper had an “easy to moderate level” difficulty.

In view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, NTA has taken extra precautions to ensure the safety of students. JEE Main candidates are allowed to enter and exit the examination venue in a phased manner. Masks are provided before entering the venue and the exam hall is disinfected at the end of each shift.


Candidates appearing for JEE Main examination in West Bengal had a difficult time reaching their test centers on Tuesday morning owing to heavy rain and lack of transport.

The government had asked all state transport utilities to commence bus services from 5 am in view of the exam, but several candidates in North 24 Parganas, Berhampur, Malda, and Siliguri claimed that they had to wait for hours, braving downpour, to get a bus to reach their test centers. Suspension of local train services due to the COVID-19 pandemic added to the woes of the candidates.

“Candidates were allowed inside after thermal screening. Not more than 12 were accommodated in a room. The entire campus has been sanitized for the purpose,” he said. Several kilometers away, at DPS Ruby Park in south Kolkata, another center earmarked for JEE (Main) exam, the drill was more or less the same, with students maintaining social distancing norms while entering the hall.


Several media reports and Tweets have alleged that on the first day, exams were not conducted in Jankipuram Extension and Krishna Nagar centres, causing confusion among students.

However, NTA, through its official Twitter account has clarified that no exam was scheduled in the two reported centres.

“This is false information. There are no exams scheduled in Krishna Nagar and Jankipuram Extension centres today,” NTA said on social media.

“Exams have been and are being organised as planned in other centres of Lucknow,” NTA added.
