This year the JEE Main exam was conducted first time biannually i.e twice a year. Union HRD Minister Prakash Javedekar last year announced that ” JEE Mains and NEET, the two National level engineering and medical entrance examinations will be held twice a year from 2019. The same student can take the exams both times a year and the best score will be counted.”
Previously, every year JEE Main was conducted only in April. This year, the 1st edition of the JEE Main exam was conducted during Jan 8- 12, 2019 and the result was declared on Jan 19th and Jan 31st for two papers respectively. The 2nd edition of exam was held from 7th-12th April, 2019. The result of the examination is yet to be declared.
It is to be noted that previously the JEE Main examination was being conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). This year onward the exam is going to be held by National Testing Agency (NTA).
