- The biggest and foremost change in conducting of JEE Mains exams is change in its cycle, earlier the exam was conducted only once a year in march-April, but now due to changes brought by National Testing Agency (NTA) JEE Mains will be held twice a year, once in January and second in April. Students will be allowed to appear for either one or both the sessions, and only their best score will be considered final.
- The number of questions to be asked in the JEE exam has been reduced from 30 to 25, and out of the 25 questions, 20 will be multiple-choice, and 5 will be numerical questions.
- Mathematics, physics and chemistry will be given equal score. Each question will be for four marks and for objective type questions, one mark will be deducted for every wrong answer while for numerical-type questions, there will be no negative marking.
- The drawing test for B. Arch, which is now for 100 marks, used to have three questions earlier. Henceforth, it will have only two questions. The B. Arch paper will carry 77 questions instead of 81.
- For the first time in the history of JEE mains, the B. Planning exam will be held separately. Its exam pattern is that it will also have three parts—I, II, III—that will be Mathematics (just like in B. Arch), the Aptitude test (also like B. Arch), and Planning based (multiple-choice) questions.
- This year onwards, having a lesser number of negative responses in the paper can help a candidate secure a good rank in case there is a tie.
