This year, IITs have relaxed the class 12 marks criteria for admission. Earlier candidates needed to obtain 75 per cent marks in class 12 along with clearing JEE Advanced. However, since this year, different boards have adopted a different mode of assessment due to pandemic, the IITs have let go of minimum requirement. Candidates still have to pass class 12 though.
JEE (Advanced) 2020 will consist of two question papers: paper 1 and paper 2 of three hours duration each. Both papers are compulsory. Each question paper will consist of three separate sections – physics, chemistry, and mathematics. It will be held in a computer-based test (CBT) mode.
