JEE Main Increase in Attempts

JEE Main Increase in Attempts - Impact on Cut off and Admissions

The score of JEE Main 2022 will be valid for the current year only. This means in case a candidate appears for JEE Main 2021, he/she is eligible for admission in the institute only for the academic year 2021-22 only. With a decision to conduct JEE Main 2021 four times, it will result in increasing the competition level. There will be a huge surge in the overall cutoff due to the higher JEE Main Attempts Limit. Almost all toppers who do wonderful in their first attempt also appear in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th attempts, which gradually will increase their scores resulting in higher cut-off and more challenging admission process.

Check JEE Main Cut Off

JEE Main Attempts Increased - How does it benefit me? 

  • With an increase in JEE Main attempts, candidates will get more opportunity to give the exam with greater proficiency each time, which in turn will increase the competition level.
  • Candidates will get more chances to succeed; in case they fail in the first attempt, they still have the remaining 3 attempts.
  • Also, candidates will get less time to revise and study up concepts, as they will try to give all the JEE Main attempts.
  • Candidates will face more pressure due to higher JEE Main Attempts 2022 which makes it difficult for them to concentrate on their studies. The mental burden of getting the drive up to perform good in all 4 exams is an unnecessary burden on all the JEE Main aspirants.
  • So, the impact won't be that good, unless JEE Main attempts get restricted to the previous limit of 2 only, in a year.
