However, every year, candidates make few common mistakes, due to which the application form is not accepted. So, here are 5 common mistakes which you must avoid while filling JEE Main 2020 application form.

#3. Selecting Incorrect JEE Main Paper

- B.E / B.Tech
#4. Not checking eligibility criteria
At times, candidates fill the application form without checking the eligibility criteria. However, the admission is only granted to the eligible candidates. Hence, it is important for the candidates to ensure that they are eligible for the examination. The eligibility for JEE Main 2020 is as follows:
- Candidate should have passed 10+2 / equivalent in the year 2019, or 2018.
- Candidates appearing for class 12th examination in the year 2020 are also eligible.

#5. Missing the deadline
Once the deadline to submit JEE Main 2020 application form ends, the candidates cannot apply. Hence, it is very important for the candidates submit the form before the lapse of the deadline.
- Last date to apply for JEE Main 2020 – 06 March 2020.
- Last date to submit the application fee – 07 March 2020.
Also take care to review application form before final submission: Note that the application form must be thoroughly checked before the final submission. There are 2 times when NTA asks the candidates to reveiw their application form. First after filling the registration form and second after filling the application form. Thus candidates must review their forms both the times and then make payment of the application fee.
