JEE Main January 2019
JEE Main will now be conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA), instead of CBSE. The exam has also been shifted to computer-based mode. Until last year JEE Main was conducted in both computer-based and offline mode but starting 2019, JEE Main will be conducted only in computer-based mode.
Earlier, when the exam was being conducted in offline mode too, more candidates appeared for the offline exam in comparison to the computer-based test.
In 2018, out of over 12 lakh students who had appeared for the JEE Main exam, more than 10 lakh had appeared for the exam in offline mode and about 2.19 lakh students had appeared for the exam in computer-based mode.
Mock test in computer-based mode was conducted by National Testing Agency by establishing a countrywide network of Test Practice Centers (TPCs).
