Once you get this link, enter your Roll number and Date of Birth and you can instantly see your result.
Via the Official Website
You can also check your result by visiting the official website for JEE Main. Here you can search for JEE Main 2019 Result link and click it. You will have to enter your Roll Number and Date of Birth in order to view your result. Until last year, CBSE was conducting the exam and the result page looked like this:
While the NTA has taken over this year, we expect the results page to be similar. Once you enter your details and click submit, you will be able to see your result. The result page shows the following details:
- Your Name
- Roll Number
- Date of Birth
- Father’s name
- Category, etc.
Apart from this personal information, you will be able to see your marks in each subject along with the total marks in JEE Main 2019. The page also displays the cut-off scores for eligibility for JEE Advanced. Here is a sample scorecard:
What if you cannot recall your Roll Number?
It can happen. Stress, anticipation, excitement – the reasons can be many. However, if you are trying to type your Roll Number and just can’t seem to recall it, then don’t panic. Here is what you can do:
- You can find your Roll number on the admit card. Therefore, get your Admit Card and type your roll number.
- Another thing you can do is take a picture of the Admit Card and store the image on your phone. This will ensure that you always have your Roll Number with you.
- Just in case you are unable to track the Admit Card as well as the photograph, you can visit nta.ac.in or jeemain.nic.in and download it again. However, you will need your Application number and password for the same. Now, we don’t expect you to remember the Application Number, but you don’t have to. When you had applied for the exam through the JEE Main login, you would have received an email with the Application Number in it.
- Worst case scenario – if you cannot locate the email either, then you can retrieve your application number and password by using the Forgot Application Number / Forgot Password option respectively.
