Aspiring candidates can appear for both or either of the sessions. It is the most important exam for engineering aspirants and is the biggest entrance test for enrollment in undergraduate engineering courses. It is also one of the most important entrance exams for B.Arch and B.Plan aspirants.

JEE Main 2020 application form has been closed for the January session, and the exams are close. To crack the JEE Main, only hard work is not sufficient; you need to work smartly, too. For this, you must know the chapters and topics that are most important for the exam. You need to prioritize your studies accordingly. This will help you improve your score in the exam. First, you must prepare the entire syllabus, and then you must give additional focus to the important topics that hold more weightage in the JEE Main.
