Inorganic Chemistry 29.7%

Experts consider Chemistry as the most scoring section in JEE Main and following the prescribed syllabus and regular practice of mock papers can ensure high score not only in the particular section but can also raise overall score and ranking. To obtain a good score in Chemistry, go for the sample papers and mock test after completing the syllabus from NCERT text books.

Check Best Books for JEE Main

Physical Chemistry section poses a lot of numerical problems primarily from Redox Reaction, Mole Concept and their equivalences, Solid States, Gas Theory, Thermochemistry, and Thermodynamics. Knowledge of proper formulae and/or logic is essential to solving questions from these topics on time.

JEE Main Counselling & Seat Allotment 2019: Schedule & Procedure

JEE Main Counselling 2019: Candidates securing qualifying marks in JEE Main will only be eligible to participate in the counselling process. The seat allotment process will take place in June 2019. There are 3 counselling processes in JEE Main – JoSAA, CSAB SFTI and CSAB NEUT. Around 100 institutes participate in JEE Main counselling and admission process.

JoSAA Counselling is held for JEE Main and JEE Advanced qualified candidates. Whereas CSAB SFTI is the separate counselling procedure held by Central Seat Allocation Board for 17 Self-Financed Technical Institutions. CSAB NEUT is conducted for supernumerary seats in North East and Union Territories. CSAB Counselling will take place after the JoSAA Counselling.
