Is It Worth to Reappear in JEE Main April?

Since candidates who appear in both the session, their better of the two score is considered while formulating the final merit list. Hence, most candidates including the toppers prefer to appear in both the sessions to improve their ranks.

Shubhankar Gambhir, a 100 percentile scorer from Rajasthan, said “It is a good idea to appear for April exam too as it will be held right after the boards and would act as a full syllabus preparation test. If I happen to get a better score in the subjects in the second attempt, it would only act in favour of me”.

JEE Main Paper-II topper, Gullapudi N Lakshmi Narayanan said “I am happy with my score but I will try to secure a better rank by reappearing in the exam again. Since only the better of the two will be counted, it might help me increase my rank and give me better chances to getting in IITs”

In JEE Main January session, 8,74,469 candidates appeared for Paper 1 and 1,45,386 candidates appeared for paper 2. Candidates don’t see any harm in reappearing for the April Session. However, experts believe that students should focus on their Board exams first rather than preparing for JEE Main April Session.
