The Joint Entrance Examination is scheduled to be held twice from the year 2019. The National Testing Agency (NTA) will be the exam conducting authority from the year 2019. Till 2018, the exam was conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The exam will be conducted in January and April between 6th and 20th.
After appearing in the exam, candidates can predict their rank using the JEE Main Rank Predictor. The rank predictor helps in predicting your rank on the basis of previous years’ marks and rank trends. However, candidates are advised not to rely on the results of the predictor completely. There are possibilities that the actual rank may vary (move up or down) from the predicted rank.
Various engineering coaching institutes also provide online rank predictors. Candidates need to submit their details in the online tool and they get an idea about the rank and the college they might get on the basis of the rank. However, these tools just provide a rough idea of the possible ranks so these must not be treated as final result/ranks.
