JEE Main 2023 B.Arch Exam Pattern 

The National Testing Agency has changed how the JEE Main B.Arch paper is tested. It has a lot of information, like how long the test will be, how many questions it will have, how points will be given, etc. Before taking the exam, students are told to look at the JEE Main B.Arch exam pattern:

  • Exam Format: The JEE Main B.Arch exam has three parts: mathematics, general aptitude, and drawing. The drawing part will only be done with a pen and paper, not on a computer. But the math and aptitude tests will only be done online, which is called a “computer-based test.”
  • The question paper will have both Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) and Numerical Answer Type (NAT) questions.
  • Marking scheme: Students will get 4 points for each correct answer, and they will lose 1 point for each wrong answer.
  • Exam Length: The exam will last for three hours.
  • A total number of questions: The exam will have a total of 77 questions.

How to Crack JEE Main B.Arch Paper? 

In India, the competition for the JEE Main B.Arch Paper is very tough, and it takes a lot of hard work to get ready for it. Every year, lakhs of students try to get in by taking the entrance exam. Along with hard work, it also takes a lot of planning. Because of this, it’s important to learn tips and tricks that will help you write faster and more accurately. Here are some tips to help you do well on the JEE entrance exam.

  • Build a good study plan. Aspirants usually spend a lot of time planning their studies, but they don’t follow through with them. If they don’t follow the study plan, they end up with only half of the results they were hoping for. Planning is more than just making a study schedule. Instead, make a plan that will work and can be carried out successfully. If you don’t have the drive to do what you want to do, it’s not going to work.
  • Analyze your strengths and weaknesses. When you start to prepare, you find out what your strengths and weaknesses are. It gives you a chance to work on your weaknesses and show what you’re good at. Working to your fullest ability will help you get better scores on the test.
  • Practice Previous year question papers/sample papers: It’s always a good idea to practice a lot. Examiners will sometimes try to word questions in a way that makes it hard for students to understand what is being asked of them. There will be all kinds of tricks, and it’s important for you to learn how to see through them and get a clear idea of what the questions are asking.
  • Plan out how you will take the test. The most important thing to do before taking the JEE Main B.Arch Paper is to plan out how you will take the test. Since you don’t have to answer the questions in the order in which they are numbered. Attend the paper in such a way that you don’t waste time trying to figure out how to answer a question you’re having trouble with. You should start with the questions you know the most about.
  • Keep a positive attitude and a balanced mind: Those who want to take the JEE Main architecture exam should make sure they have a healthy mind before they take it. With a clear head, you’ll be able to focus and figure out how to answer the questions. Even if you have trouble with a question, you won’t lose your balance, which will help you avoid bad things.
