What is the eligibility for B.Tech/B.E. JEE Main exam 2020?
Candidates who have appeared and qualified intermediate examination (PCM) or equivalent exams in the year 2018 or 2019 along with those appearing in the said exams of the year 2020 are eligible to appear in B.Tech/B.E. However, those who have qualified the exams of 2017 or before are not eligible. Furthermore, there is no restriction based on age whatsoever.Who all can appear for B.Arch/B.Planning JEE Main exam 2020? With effect from the year 2020, NTA has started a separate test for B.Planning. B. Planning stands for Bachelor of Planning. From the preparation point of view, the official website provides sample papers. Coming back to the points of discussion—the one we were talking about—all those students who have qualified intermediate in any stream but have cleared Mathematics with 50 percent of marks in aggregate can apply. And this implies that commerce or Arts students—with Mathematics as a subject—can also appear for B.Planning, JEE Main 2020!
What will be the JEE Main paper pattern in 2020?
There would be three parts of the exam: Part 1 having PCM for engineering aspirants whereas Part 2 is for those preparing for Architecture or Bachelor of Planning. It has to be noted that there will be separate exams for Bachelor of Architecture and Bachelor of Planning in Part 2 of JEE Main. With NTA being the conducting body, a lot of things changed: The fee structure, the means of conducting the exam and finally, the pattern.
In JEE Main paper pattern in 2020 will have:

The next level: JEE Advanced 2020
Imagine you have qualified the JEE Main exam! But will you still be able to hit the nail; (which is securing a seat in a prestigious college)? No, you are still a step away. So, here's the key to qualify—JEE Advanced 2020. JEE Advanced is only for Engineering aspirants. For B.Arch and B.Planning there is a similar yet different test called JEE Advanced AAT (Architecture Aptitude Test). It is also conducted by IITs and it includes only the Aptitude test. JEE Advanced AAT will be conducted next year in June. Now coming back to JEE Advanced, you need to ponder over these features.
JEE Advanced 2020 important points to note:
JEE Advanced 2020 Date:
Since there hasn't been any official notification from the agency yet, every date is tentative. So, mentioned below are the tentative dates for JEE Advanced 2020:

As mentioned earlier, the top 2, 50,000 students who qualify JEE Main will be able to make it to this level. All those candidates who were born in Oct 1993 or after are eligible for taking this test. However, the number of attempts does matter here because one cannot appear for the test for the third consecutive year.
What will be the JEE Advanced syllabus 2020? This exam encapsulates three domains: Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics. IIT Delhi, which is the conducting body for JEE Advanced 2020, has not yet released the official syllabus for the exam. Just like JEE Mains, the pattern can be somewhat different but the syllabus will be more or less the same. So, it is advised that if you want to start preparing for it, just go through the previous year's syllabus. IIT Roorkee conducted the test last year and hence you can just follow their website to get the details. At present, the candidates just have to wait for the authorities to give away the dates and details.
What will be the JEE Advanced Pattern 2020?
Unlike JEE Main Exam, this does not have a clear format. There is no standard structure as of now. Like said earlier, with different conducting bodies, the patterns and syllabi change. For your convenience, we have arranged a few yet important pointers for JEE Advanced:
JEE Advanced Preparation Tips:
It is a stiff competition out there and you need to be thoroughly prepared to face it. If you think JEE Main is a hard nut to crack, oh God, this can become harder. But as they say, where there is a will, there is a way. You can do this given that you are fully dedicated. Just like JEE Main exam, you need to just focus on the pattern, syllabus, and timings of the exam.
According to the exam, these are some preparation tips:
Counseling and seat allotment:
It all starts with aspiration. If you want to be seated in one of the best Engineering colleges in India, you need to start with JEE Main Exam. Now, JEE Main exam's cutoff varies every year and the candidates get admission according to that. The top 2.5 Lac candidates get elevated to JEE Advanced. Those who have secured marks above than cutoff marks will make the qualifying rank which means they have cracked the exam. Now those cracking JEE Advanced get to have access to JoSAA (Joint Seat Allocation Authority) and thereby get to start with the counseling process. By registering on JoSAA, students can initiate the process. However, this is just the beginning and will be followed by choice filling, mock allotment and many more.
