The National Testing Agency (NTA) has released the final answer key for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main held in March at its official website nta.ac.in and jeemain.nta.nic.in. The result will be based on the final answer key. Students who have appeared for the exam can calculate an estimated score based on the answer key.
Students need to keep their response sheet with them and the final answer key and then award themselves +4 for every answer key that matches with the response sheet and deduct one mark for a wrong attempt. For the question which a student has not attempted, they can give 0 marks – no addition or deduction. This should give students an estimate of their score.
Based on the initial feedback received from students and experts, the March attempt was comparatively tougher than that of the February session. Most students found the mathematics section to be comparatively tricky. Experts too had believed that the number of conceptual questions was higher in the March session which might make it tougher for some students
