What You Need To Do After Taking JEE Main 2018

Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), which took place on Sunday, i.e., Apr 8, has opened the gates for other entrance examinations in the country. Over 10 lakh candidates appeared for the sixth edition of JEE Main, including abroad examination centres, out of which only 2.2 lakh candidates will be shortlisted for the next round of the selection process, JEE Advanced.

There is a mixed reaction from the students who appeared for JEE Main. A few students felt that the mathematics paper was neither easy nor tough. However, many students felt that the physics section was very tough; they complained that time was not sufficient to attempt all the questions.


Aspirants from all over the country have expressed one common opinion - the calculation part in physics section consumed a lot of time. After JEE Main, students should immediately start assessing the different possible ways they can go now that the exam is done.
