Aditi Amrendra Student Expert 30th Sep, 2019

As per JEE mains criteria, Candidates who have passed class 12 or any other equivalent exam in 2018 or 2019 or those who will be appearing in class 12 or any other equivalent examination in 2020 will be eligible to appear in JEE Main 2020. Those who have passed class 12 or equivalent examination in 2017 or before and those who will appear in 2021 or later will not be eligible to appear in JEE Main 2020. Aspirants who have appeared for their class 12 in 2017, failed in 2017 but have appeared again in 2018 and passed are not eligible for JEE Main 2020.

Hello there!


There's no hard checking or something for cbse improvement exam student, the answer sheet checking is pretty normal like regular students answer sheet as students who appear in the improvement exam has to face the same question paper as that of regular student's question paper and teachers has to follow the same marking scheme as prescribed by the cbde whether it'sthe answer sheet of regular or improvement student.

Ashish pal Student Expert 18th Sep, 2019

Hello Ankit.

Yes you have to give practical in your board exams of 2020 along with theory exam also.

If you are a regular scholar then no need to worry your college will arrange the things at your own college.

If you are a private student then CBSE will make a centre in your city for your practicals. You will get the information in notifications.

Ok good luck


At which place internal assessment for maths and English would be conducted for CBSE class 12th private candidates?

Ashish pal Student Expert 16th Sep, 2019

Hello dear aspirant

It is not exactly your headache actually your college will be looking into the Matter. Most probably these will be at your own college for regular students. And in case you are a private student then CBSE will make a centre for the same in your city itself.

Ok good luck
