JEE Main 2019: Toppers share their plans for re-appearing in April exam and JEE Advanced 2019 prep strategy
NTA would be conducting JEE Main 2019 II in April. Based on the better of two scores, JEE Main 2019 Rank would be calculated for which JEE Advanced 2019 shortlist would be prepared. Here is what toppers say.
New Delhi: Joint Entrance Examination, JEE Main 2019 January examination is over. The next step for most of the students who appeared for the engineering entrance test is to determine whether or not they would be appearing for the JEE Main 2019 April examination. Between many suggestions and advice, here is what JEE Main 2019 January toppers (students who have scored 100 percentile scores) have to say about their plans for re-appearing for April exam, JEE Advanced 2019 prep plan and strategy.
Sambit Behera, a student from Kota who scored 100 percentile is not too keen on appearing for the JEE Main 2019 April examination. When speaking about the same, Sambit said, “I would rather focus my time and energy on JEE Advanced which would be happening in May.” As to the concerns about perhaps losing the JEE Main rank, Sambit noted that ranks don’t matter. “I am not too bothered about the rank. JEE Main is only the first step, it is all about JEE Advanced.”
Jayesh Singla, another JEE Main 2019 topper, however, was not too decided about appearing or not in the JEE Main 2019 April examination. “Though I have no plans yet,” said Jayesh, “ I might just appear for the JEE Main April examination like a practice session for JEE Advanced 2019 which is in May.” While both may differ about the exam in April, the end goal for both Sambit and Jayesh is IIT and IIT Bombay being the first choice.
As to the raw scores, Both Sambit and Jayesh have scored a perfect score in Physics and Mathematics and lost their marks in the Chemistry paper. Ironically, across the 8 batches of JEE Main 2019 examination, Chemistry was said to be the easiest of the papers and based largely from NCERT.
Speaking on the cut off on which students must consider appearing for JEE Main 2019 April examinations, experts suggest that there is no empirical formula. The better of the two NTA scores would be finally considered for the JEE Main 2019 Rank which would be announced in April. IIT Roorkee, however, has yet not shared the exact number of students that would be short-listed for the JEE Advanced examination.
JEE Advanced 2019 is scheduled to be conducted on May 19, 2019. As many as 2.5 lakh students (or probably more) are expected to be shortlisted for the examination based on their JEE Main 2019 Rank. Since the rank would be based on the percentile score, it can be suggested that students who are within the 75 to 80 percentile score range would be short-listed for the IIT JEE examination.
