JEE Main 2019: Rise in Number of Female Aspirants for January Session

JEE Main 2019 is all set to be conducted from January 06 to January 20 in online mode. JEE Main Registration for January session closed on September 30, 2018 and the numbers are slightly surprising. The number of applicants has dipped to 9.65 lakhs as compared to 11.5 lakhs last year. However, there is a positive rise in number of female applicants in JEE Mains this year.



Last year JEE Main saw 10.4 Lakh candidates appear in the exam. Only 24% among these candidates were female. The dip in number of overall registrations can be attributed to the fact that exam will be conducted twice this year and many aspirants are still in the final phase of preparation. Also the overlapping between JEE Main and Class 12 Board Practical exams is another decisive factor.

More applications are expected in the second session of JEE Main in April. But the rise in number of female applicants is a positive reaction for the Government and officials.
