JEE Main Answer Key: Steps to raise objections, important instructions
To check your answer key, responses and question paper, go to jeemain.nic.in and click on the activated link. A new window would open. Students can login with their Application Number and password or Date of Birth.
Once logged in to your account, click on ‘Challenge(s) regarding Answer Key’. 90 Question IDs relating to Physics/Chemistry/Mathematics for Paper I and 80 Questions (Mathematics/Aptitude) IDs for Paper II would be displayed on the screen in sequential order.
Your recorded responses and the correct answer is provided on the same page. The correct ID or ‘answer key’ is placed under the column ‘Correct Option’ which would be used by NTA.
To compute your JEE Main II 2020 January result, simply add all the answers marked by you that tally with the ‘correct option’ and the number of answers which do not tally with the answer key provided. Your raw score would be calculated as 4 X Number of Correct Answers – Number of Incorrect questions.
If you wish to challenge the option, select the option ID (or IDs) given in the next four columns. Once done, scroll down and ‘Save your Claim’.
On the next window that opens, you would be able to see the list of all the question IDs you have raised an objection against. This is also the screen wherein the candidate is required to upload documentary proof in favour of the objections raised. Remember, you are required to upload a single PDF file.
Once uploaded, click on ‘Save your Claim Finally’. The system would then prompt you to fee payment. Fee of Rs.1,000/- for each question challenged is applicable. Select the mode of payment and make the fee.
Objections raised without fee payments would not be considered. Also, there is no refund of the fee if your challenge is found to be incorrect. Only if your challenge for a particular question is found correct would the fee be refunded – for that question. For example, you raise objections against 5 answers but only 2 are found to be correct. In the scenario, Rs. 2000 would be refunded.
Remember, NTA would be considering the objections raised and releasing the final answer keys. It would also be releasing the JEE Main 2020 January exam result as well as the JEE Main 2020 final result and rank.
Also, the result calculated on the basis of the answer key is the Raw Score. Remember, this is subject to change based on the challenges received by NTA.
NTA would be calculating apart from the raw score the NTA score of the candidates. This score would then be used to declare the JEE Main Result 2020 and JEE Main 2020 Rank. Status of whether or not you have qualified for JEE Advanced 2020 would also be released by NTA along with the rank and result.
