In India, the first step for students aspiring to become an engineer is to clear the Joint Entrance Examination Main (JEE Main 2022). Conducted by the autonomous testing organisation National Testing Agency (NTA), JEE Main helps in assessing candidates for admissions to renowned higher educational institutions including the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) in the country.

However, bagging a top score in national-level entrance examinations like JEE Main requires serious preparation. Most of the students come across hurdles of not getting access to all the information and resources for the preparation. And that’s why we have compiled all the necessary information one needs to know about JEE Main including some preparation tips that could come in handy. 

Following the changes introduced, the JEE (Main) is now turned into multiple sessions format. It is held in four sessions, that is, February, March, April, May 2022 to help candidates enrol in the next academic session. This format of examination has been created to give more opportunities to the candidates to improve their scores in the examination without wasting the academic year. After the conduction of all the exam sessions, candidates’ best scores will be picked to prepare a merit list.
