जेईई मेन 2020 डमिट कार्ड (जारी), परीक्षा तिथियां, परिणाम और क्या 2021 जनवरी में होगी जेईई मेन की परीक्षा?

Last updated on August 24th, 2020 at 12:04 pm

जेईई मेन परीक्षा की तैयारी कर रहे हजारों छात्रों का इंतजार अब खत्म हो गया है। सुप्रीम कोर्ट से मिली हरी झंडी के बाद नेशनल टेस्टिंग एजेंसी यानी एनटीए ने JEE Main 2020 के लिए एडमिट कार्ड जारी कर दिए हैं। ये एडमिट कार्ड जेईई एनटीए की आधिकारिक वेबसाइट पर जारी किए दए हैं। इसके लिए छात्र jeemain.nta.nic.in पर जाकर अपना एडमिट कार्ड डाउनलोड कर सकते हैं। ध्यान देने वाली बात है कि 3 जुलाई, 2020 को मानव संसाधन विकास मंत्री रमेश पोखरियाल ने जेईई मेन 2020 के लिए तारीख और समय निर्धारित किया था। साथ ही बताया गया था कि उम्मीदवारों को जेईई परीक्षा परीक्षा केंद्र में प्रवेश के लिए एडमिट कार्ड के साथ एक मूल पहचान प्रमाण लाना अनिवार्य होगा।

क्या है परीक्षा का शेड्यूल?

निर्धारित समय के अनुसार JEE Main 2020 की परीक्षाएं 1 से 6 सितंबर 2020 के बीच होगी। एनटीए के मुताबिक परीक्षा को शिफ्ट में बांटा गया है। इसके आधार पर पहली शिफ्ट में परीक्षा सुबह 9 बजे से लेकर 12 बजे तक होगी तो वहीं दूसरी शिफ्ट की परीक्षा दोपहर 3 बजे से लेकर शाम 6 के बीच पूरी की जाएगी। गौरतलब है कि कुछ दिन पहले तक परीक्षा को लेकर दुविधा की स्थिति बनी हुई थी। वो इसलिए, क्योंकि देशभर में कोविड-19 महामारी के चलते कई बड़ी परीक्षाओं की तारीख आगे बढ़ा दी गई तो कई परीक्षाएं रद्द भी की गई हैं। इसी को लेकर छात्रों ने सुप्रीम कोर्ट में एक याचिका दर्ज कर परीक्षा को तय समय पर करवाने की मांग की थी। इस पर सुप्रीम कोर्ट ने सुनवाई करते हुए JEE Main 2020 को समय के अनुरूप कराने का आदेश दिया। कोर्ट ने अपने आदेश में कहा कि छात्रों का साल बर्बाद नहीं कर सकते लिहाजा परीक्षा को समय पर पूरा किया जाए। इसके बाद ही एनटीए ने छात्रों के एडमिट कार्ड जारी किए हैं।

जेईई मेन 2020 का गणित सिलेबस

प्रभावी तैयारी के लिए उम्मीदवारों को गणित के पाठ्यक्रम की गहन समझ होनी चाहिए। प्रत्येक सही उत्तर के लिए 4 अंक दिए जाएंगे और प्रत्येक गलत उत्तर के लिए 1 अंक काटे जाएंगे। गणित के लिए पाठ्यक्रम अपेक्षाकृत आसान और कठिन विषयों का एक संयोजन है। जेईई मेन परीक्षा के सबसे महत्वपूर्ण खंड की ओर विषय वेटेज के अनुसार व्यवस्थित दृष्टिकोण, देश के शीर्ष इंजीनियरिंग संस्थानों में पढ़ने का मौका दे सकता है।

अधिकांश परीक्षार्थियों के अनुसार 25% प्रश्न आसान, 25% कठिन और बाकी 50% मध्यम कठिनाई स्तर के होते हैं। जेईई मेन गणित के सिलेबस से निपटने के दौरान हमने उम्मीदवारों की सहायता के लिए कई पहलुओं को कवर किया है। गणित के यूनिट वार सिलेबस, विषयवार वेटेज, गणित स्कोर अधिकतम करने और प्रश्न हल करने के टिप्स के लिए लेख पढ़ें।

बीजगणित (Algebra) को प्राथमिकता दें: चूंकि ये दो विषय जेईई मुख्य प्रश्न पत्र के एक प्रमुख हिस्से में योगदान करते हैं, इसलिए उम्मीदवारों को अभ्यास और किसी भी प्रकार के संदेह स्पष्टीकरण के माध्यम से उनके साथ होना चाहिए।

बीजगणित जेईई मुख्य गणित के पाठ्यक्रम का सबसे आसान और सबसे स्कोरिंग बिट में से एक है। इस सेक्शन से निपटने के लिए सभी उम्मीदवारों को मूल बातें और एक कम्प्यूटेशनल गति पर स्पष्टता की आवश्यकता है। बीजगणित के प्रश्नों को अधिकतर अन्य इकाइयों के साथ जोड़ा जाता है और इसलिए बीजगणित को कवर करना बाकी की तैयारी में सहायता करेगा।

गणना आधुनिक गणित के सबसे बड़े वर्गों में से एक है, इसके दो मुख्य खंड या सेक्शन हैं – विभेदक और अभिन्न कलन (Differential and Integral Calculus)। प्रश्न दोनों तरीकों से पूछे जा सकते हैं अर्थात् सिद्धांत और अनुप्रयोगों पर आधारित (theory and applications)।

टैकलिंग कोऑर्डिनेट ज्योमेट्री: यह देखते हुए कि इस विषय के अधिकांश प्रश्न फॉर्मूला आधारित हैं, यह कुछ के लिए सबसे आसान सेक्शन के रूप में सामने आ सकता है। हालांकि, किसी को इस अनुभाग को हल्के में नहीं लेना चाहिए, इस विषय में मूर्खतापूर्ण गलतियों से बचने के लिए बहुत अभ्यास की आवश्यकता है।

सभी फॉर्मूलों का अध्ययन करें और एक सूची तैयार करें: गणित में फॉर्मूलों पर एक मजबूत पकड़ परीक्षा में एक बड़ा फायदा है। उम्मीदवारों को यह सुनिश्चित करना चाहिए कि उनके पास ज्यामिति, त्रिकोणमिति, प्रायिकता और निश्चित रूप से कैलकुलस के सभी फॉर्मूलों पर स्पष्टता है। तैयारी की अवधि के दौरान, वे संशोधन के समय के लिए सूत्रों की एक सूची बना सकते हैं।

अवधारणाओं का अनुप्रयोग: उम्मीदवारों को ज्यामिति और अंतर समीकरणों के अनुप्रयोगों को संशोधित करना चाहिए। यह निश्चित अभिन्न के गुणों और शंकु के गुणों के बीजीय गणना के परिणामों के लिए लागू होता है। इन आवेदनों का पूरी तरह से संशोधन जेईई मेन परीक्षा के दिन से पहले किया जाना चाहिए।

पिछले वर्ष के प्रश्न पत्र और मॉक टेस्ट: इससे पहले कि आप अपनी तैयारी की योजना बनाएं, पिछले वर्ष के प्रश्न पत्रों और मॉक टेस्ट पर एक नज़र डालें जिससे आपकी योजना सही दिशा में आगे बढ़ सके।

सटीक संदर्भ सामग्री: अपनी तैयारी शुरू करने से पहले, सुनिश्चित करें कि आप जिस संदर्भ सामग्री का उपयोग कर रहे हैं वह सटीक है। सभी पुस्तकों को कवर करने पर ध्यान केंद्रित न करें, आपके पास अवधारणाओं और अभ्यास के स्पष्टीकरण के लिए पर्याप्त सामग्री होनी चाहिए।

जल्दी से जल्दी रिवीजन : ज्यादातर अक्सर उम्मीदवार पूरे पाठ्यक्रम को कवर करने के लिए इंतजार नहीं करते हैं और फिर संशोधित करना शुरू करते हैं। हालांकि, गणित जैसे विषय के साथ, अवधारणाओं पर अपनी पकड़ बनाए रखने के लिए, आपको नियमित अंतराल पर संशोधन करना होगा। यह आपके समय को भी बचाएगा जब आप संशोधन के पूर्ण दौर के लिए बैठते हैं। इसलिए तैयारी योजना बनाते समय उम्मीदवारों को संशोधन के लिए पर्याप्त समय की अनुमति देनी चाहिए।

JEE मेन 2020 कटऑफ को क्लियर करने के टिप्स

जेईई मेन में बढ़ती प्रतिस्पर्धा के साथ, उम्मीदवारों के लिए विशिष्ट लक्ष्य निर्धारित करना आवश्यक है। यहां कुछ अनुभाग-युक्त युक्तियां दी गई हैं, जो सटीक पेपर प्रयास दृष्टिकोण प्राप्त करने में आपकी सहायता कर सकती हैं:

गणित: गणित का स्तर 3 साल से मध्यम रहा है और मैट्रिसेस, वेक्टर 3 डी, निर्धारक जैसे विषय कुछ उच्च स्कोरिंग विषय हैं। हाल के वर्षों में इन अध्यायों से ऊँचाई और दूरी और त्रिकोणमिति के प्रश्न नहीं पूछे गए हैं। यदि परीक्षा के दौरान गणित में 20 प्रश्नों का प्रयास किया जाता है, तो 60-50 सटीकता के साथ एक व्यक्ति 45-50 अंक प्राप्त करने की संभावना रखता है, बशर्ते उम्मीदवार सभी पूर्णांक प्रश्नों (गैर-नकारात्मक प्रश्न) का प्रयास करता है। एकल विकल्प प्रश्नों के बजाय पूर्णांक प्रश्नों का प्रयास करने पर अधिक जोर दिया जाना चाहिए।

भौतिकी: पिछले 5 वर्षों से, भौतिकी सभी का सबसे कठिन खंड रहा है जिसमें बहुत से लम्बे प्रश्न शामिल हैं। पेपर का संख्यात्मक भाग आम तौर पर 11 वीं कक्षा से पूछा जाता है, जबकि वैचारिक भाग ज्यादातर 12 वीं कक्षा से होता है। एक बाद वाले पर अधिक ध्यान केंद्रित करना चाहिए क्योंकि यह तुलनात्मक रूप से स्कोरिंग हिस्सा है। 70% सटीकता के साथ, यदि कोई उम्मीदवार भौतिकी खंड के 15 प्रश्नों का प्रयास करता है, तो वह 30 से अधिक अंक प्राप्त कर सकता है।

केमिस्ट्री: केमिस्ट्री सेक्शन को सबसे आसान माना जाता है, जहां ऑर्गेनिक और इनऑर्गेनिक प्रश्न वैचारिक प्रकार के होते हैं। संबंधित विकल्पों के साथ सीधे पत्राचार के कारण इन सवालों पर अधिक ध्यान दिया जाना चाहिए। यदि कोई उम्मीदवार 80% सटीकता के साथ 22 रसायन विज्ञान के प्रश्नों का प्रयास करने में सक्षम है, तो वह 60 से अधिक अंक प्राप्त कर सकता है।

जेईई मेन कट ऑफ को प्रभावित करने वाले कारक

जेईई मेन कटऑफ की गणना कई कारकों के आधार पर की जाती है। यहां सबसे महत्वपूर्ण कारक हैं जो प्रत्येक वर्ष जेईई मेन कट को प्राप्त करने में मदद करते हैं:

  • परीक्षा में कुल परीक्षार्थी उपस्थित हुए
  • परीक्षा की कठिनाई का स्तर
  • उपलब्ध सीटों की संख्या
  • कुल मिलाकर उम्मीदवार का प्रदर्शन

क्या JEE Main 2021 जनवरी की परीक्षा में कोई देरी होगी?

क्या जेईई मेन और एडवांस 2020 के स्थगित होने का प्रभाव 2021 में होने वाली परीक्षा पर होगा? मतलब क्या JEE 2021 परीक्षा प्रभावित होगी ये बड़ा सवाल है? राष्ट्रीय परीक्षण एजेंसी (NTA) ने COVID-19 के कारण JEE Main 2020 अप्रैल सत्र की परीक्षा को पहले 18 से 23 जुलाई तक के लिए स्थगित किया जिसके बाद अब ये परीक्षा सुप्रीम कोर्ट के फैसले के बाद सितंबर में आयोजित होगी। लेकिन परीक्षा के स्थगित या देरी से होने के कारण, जो छात्र JEE Main 2021 जनवरी सत्र की परीक्षा में शामिल होना चाहते हैं, उनके पास बहुत सारे प्रश्न और प्रश्न हैं। सवाल ये है कि क्या जेईई मेन 2021 की परीक्षा अपने सही समय पर होगी या नहीं। या जेईई मेन 2021 को भी स्थगित किया जाएगा ?; क्या परीक्षा सामान्य अनुसूची के अनुसार जनवरी में आयोजित की जाएगी? और बहुत सारे सवाल।

जेईई मेन 2021 जनवरी सत्र से संबंधित इन सभी प्रश्नों का उत्तर जानने के लिए जब हमनें अहम जानकारी इकट्ठा की। इसमें हमने पाया कि एनटीए सामान्य शेड्यूल के अनुसार जनवरी में जेईई मेन 2021 परीक्षा आयोजित करना चाहता है। लेकिन यह वास्तव में COVID-19 स्थिति पर निर्भर करेगा कि परीक्षा अपने सही यानी निर्धारित समय पर होगी या नहीं। दरअसल कोरोना महामारी को देखते हुए वर्तमान में, यह गारंटी नहीं दी जा सकती है कि परीक्षा केवल जनवरी में आयोजित की जाएगी। एनटीए के अधिकारियों के मुताबिक जनवरी में जेईई मेन परीक्षा आयोजित करते हैं क्योंकि बोर्ड परीक्षाएं मार्च में आयोजित की जाती हैं और छात्रों को अपनी बोर्ड परीक्षाओं की तैयारी के लिए भी समय मिलता है। इसलिए, यदि COVID-19 के कारण स्थितियां और खराब हो जाती हैं और बोर्ड परीक्षा भी स्थानांतरित कर दी जाती है, तो निश्चित रूप से JEE Main 2021 जनवरी सत्र की परीक्षा भी स्थगित हो जाएगी। वर्तमान में, सब कुछ जेईई मेन 2020 परीक्षा के सफल संचालन पर निर्भर करेगा।

जेईई मेन 2021 का सिलेबस को कम किया जाएगा?

एनटीए के अधिकारियों की माने तो JEE Main 2021 के सिलेबस पर चर्चा चल रही है क्योंकि HRD मंत्री पहले ही CBSE सिलेबस को कम करने की घोषणा कर चुके हैं। हम सभी बोर्डों से परामर्श करेंगे और फिर परीक्षा के सिलेबस को कम करने का निर्णय लेंगे। उम्मीदवारों को परीक्षा के लिए पाठ्यक्रम की चिंता नहीं करनी चाहिए क्योंकि सभी बदलाव स्थिति को देखते हुए किए जाएंगे और हम छात्रों को किसी भी मुश्किल स्थिति में नहीं डालेंगे।

कुल मिलाकर देखा जाए तो फिलहाल स्कूल और कॉलेज सभी बंद हैं और इंजीनियरिंग और मेडिकल प्रवेश परीक्षा को कोरोना वायरस महामारी के कारण स्थगित कर दिया है। इसलिए जेईई मेन 2021 परीक्षा के लिए छात्रों में भ्रम की स्थिति अभी भी बनी हुई है। ग़ौरतलब है कि हर साल जेईई मेन परीक्षा दो चरणों में आयोजित की जाता है: जनवरी और अप्रैल। लेकिन इस साल कोविड-19 संक्रमण के चलते अप्रैल 2020 में होने वाली परीक्षा को पहले ही दो बार स्थगित किया गया था और अब लॉकडाउन के कारण सितंबर के पहले हफ्ते में परीक्षा को आयोजित किया जाना है। हालांकि सवाल जेईई मेन जनवरी 2021 का है इसलिए नेशनल टेस्टिंग एजेंसी (NTA) स्कूलों और कॉलेजों के फिर से शुरू होने के बाद JEE main 2021 परीक्षा की समीक्षा कर निर्धारित समय को लेकर फैसला करेगा।

जेईई मेन 2021 की तैयारी के टिप्स

अब, जब आप जेईई मेन 2021 परीक्षा के पाठ्यक्रम के बारे में नहीं जानते हैं; यह नहीं जानते कि यह सामान्य कार्यक्रम के अनुसार आयोजित किया जाएगा या नहीं, परीक्षा की तैयारी और भी कठिन हो जाती है। यहां, हम कुछ JEE Main 2021 की तैयारी के टिप्स प्रदान कर रहे हैं जो आपको परीक्षा के लिए तैयार रहने में मदद करेंगे जो भी परिस्थितियां हों।

महत्वपूर्ण विषयों को चुने– हालांकि आप सटीक जेईई मेन 2021 के पाठ्यक्रम के बारे में नहीं जानते हैं, आप परीक्षा के महत्वपूर्ण विषयों की तैयारी शुरू कर सकते हैं। जिन विषयों में पिछली परीक्षाओं में अधिक वेटेज देखा गया है, उन्हें लिया जाना चाहिए और उनका अध्ययन किया जाना चाहिए।

B.Tech in Aeronautical Engineering This is not a core engineering course. The scope of education spans from aircraft, satellites, spacecraft etc. Vast job opportunities in the public and private sector are present due to low competition. 
Diploma in Nautical Science This one year course on Nautical Science can help you get admission in Indian Naval Institute work in the field of Naval Science, Port Operations, Weather Forecasting etc.
Bachelor of Design (Product) This course is for you if you are interested in art. Product Designing is not just limited to designing an outfit or dress. It could be about designing software or hardware or any particular industry product. Average packages for freshers range from 4 to 6 lacs!
Bachelors of Business Administration (BBA) This course is something which is mostly considered by Commerce graduates. But there are no such criteria which limit this to Commerce students only. Product Managers, Business Analysts, Human Resource Managers are few posts which can be bagged by a BBA degree holder.
Bachelor of Fashion Technology This course might seem not as lucrative due to the low starting salaries. But once the experience in this particular industry grows, there is a good appraisal. A job Fashion Technology requires knowledge of good designing software.
Ethical Hacking This course is generally pursued by students of B.E/B.Tech in Computer Science or related fields. Ethical Hackers are required in top government agencies and private organisations to think outside the box and find flaws in security systems. This course does require programming knowledge but is not specific to only software engineers. Even a commerce graduate can become an Ethical Hacker with the right knowledge.
Bachelor of Science (Honors) A B.Sc Honors course can be pursued in various domains such as Physics, Chemistry, Economics, Maths, Forensic Sciences and even Computer Science. Depending on the domain, graduates have opportunities in the respective field. For example, a B.Sc in Economics graduate can easily make a career in Data Analytics or Data Science.
Merchant Navy As the name suggests, Merchant Navy is a field for administration of international trade via Sea routes, ports etc. A merchant navy officer is responsible for managing various activities which could range from administrative roles at a large cargo ship to an international trade port. The only downside of this job is less to no contact for several days with your family.
Diploma in Aviation Aviation is still a growing field in India. Due to low per capita income of the country multiple aviation companies have fallen into bankruptcy. But the jobs in the aviation field are growing at a large pace. With expansion of airports in the country, the aviation industry is growing. Commercial Pilots are required for airlines and cargo planes. They also need a separate licence to fly an airplane.

Do consider the courses mentioned above. Maybe you are interested in such courses and are completely unaware of this. But it’s never too late! Students often have a large gap after their 12th graduation to take an admission into a college course. You still have time to consider what is the right career path for you. Consult a career counsellor or take an online test which can help you find what is the right path for you!
