As the JEE Main 2022 session will have four sessions i.e. February, March, April and May 2022, NTA has provided some benefits in terms of refunds etc.
JEE Main 2022 Eligibility is what decides if a candidate has all the required qualifications to take the JEE Main Exam. Unable to meet the criteria, your candidature can be cancelled at any moment before joining a college. To sum up, the JEE Main Eligibility Criteria is based on the following parameters-
Following is the Eligibility Criteria for the aspirants who wish to attempt the JEE Main exam in 2022:
|Criteria||Eligibility for Appearing in JEE Main||Relaxation (for reserved categories)|
|Age limit||Born on or After October 1, 1997||Born on or After October 1, 1992|
|Minimum qualifying marks (for admission in NITs, IIITs, IITs, and CFTIs)||75% marks in aggregate||65% marks in aggregate|
|Year of passing class 12||Passing after 2020, 2021 or appearing in 2022||–|
|Total number of attempts||3 (consecutive)||–|
This criterion does not limit a candidate from appearing in JEE Main 2022. The participating colleges of JEE Main want these bucket of subjects in class 12th-
With this under consideration, it is evident that now B.E/B.Tech course does not need Chemistry as the main subject. Although, colleges might still consider this under admission criteria.
NTA is going to release the JEE Main 2022 Admit Card about a week in advance from the JEE Main Exam dates. Candidates can download their admit card for JEE Main from the official website i.e. jeemain.nta.nic.in using Application Number and DOB.

To ace the JEE Main exam with good marks candidates should start preparing early and must follow a proper timetable. Some of the useful JEE Main 2022 Preparation Tips are mentioned below:-
As the JEE Main exam is coming closer, it is very important to know the JEE Main Important Topics that you must prepare thoroughly to provide a good base for a good score. We have provided a list of subject-wise topics that are important for the JEE Main Exam (Paper 1 only). It is advised to read the whole article about important topics to understand segregation more deeply.
Physics section of JEE Main includes more than 21 chapters and some of the most important chapters are given below-
|Important Topics||JEE Main 2022 Weightage|
|Oscillations And Waves||10%|
|Atoms And Nuclei||5%|
|Laws of Motion||5%|
|Magnetic effect of Current and Magnetism||9%|
Chemistry section of JEE Main comprises 30 chapters. These are further divided into three – Organic, Inorganic and Physical Chemistry. The number of chapters in Chemistry is very large which makes it comparatively harder to score. It is often seen that students attempt the easiest questions of Chemistry wrongly. Given below are some most important chapters of JEE Main Chemistry. Do note that segregation according to 3 subheads is not given-
|Important Topics||JEE Main 2022 Weightage|
|Transition Elements & Coordination Chemistry||9%|
|Carbohydrates, Amino Acids, and Polymers||7%|
|Periodic Table and Representative elements||6%|
|General Organic Chemistry||6%|
Mathematics section is probably the most scoring section of JEE Main. Students do not have to write the steps or solve the complete question as required in board exams. This requires conceptual knowledge along with good calculation skills. There are around 25 chapters in JEE Main Mathematics syllabus. Out of these, the most important ones are given below-
|Important Topics||JEE Main 2022 Weightage|
All topics of Calculus are deemed highly important for the JEE Main 2022. These topics create a base for further study of engineering and require a lot of dedication from students. Prepare all these topics with complete dedication.
The Physics section of JEE Main consists of both theory and numerical questions. A student must be prepared with both types of questions. This can be done only by learning topics conceptually. Although, mugging up the topics is not a good idea it is suggested for a few things such as formulae. Below is a table of books and it’s usage.
|Book And Author||Usage|
|Concepts of Physics (Vol. 1 and 2) by H.C Verma||Questions from all chapters. Topic-wise exercises.|

|Problems in General Physics by I E Irodov||Large number of questions for practice|
|Understanding Physics by Freedman and Young||Theoretical explanation of major topics|
Chemistry is often considered easy due to the limited number of practical questions and major topics on theoretical knowledge. But, if devised properly, questions from chemistry can be toughest of all the 3 sections. So, given below are books that will help in both theory as well as numericals of Chemistry section in JEE Main.

The centralized counselling process for JEE Main 2022 conducted for IITs and other engineering colleges. Seat Allocation in the institutes participating in the centralized process will be based on AIR and candidate preferences for branch and institute. JEE Main Counselling will be done at four levels in online mode:
Initially, the counselling for AIEEE (now JEE Main) was conducted by CCB or Central Counselling Board. With structure of exams changing from 2013, to JEE Main and JEE Advanced, CCB was also renamed CSAB (Central Seat Allocation Board).
More than 100 colleges take part in the counselling process of JEE Main. In order to score admission in top IIT courses, candidates need to clear JEE Advanced 2022 as well. But before that, candidates need to get a rank in the top 2,50,000 qualifiers of the JEE Main exam to be eligible for the JEE Advanced 2022.
Candidates are advised to check the JoSAA Counselling process to ensure that they do not commit any mistakes.
Now that the JEE Main 2022 is coming closer, students are getting prepared for admissions to top engineering colleges in India. Students still prefer engineering in higher education due to its vast scope in the global industry.
