JCECE Exam Pattern 2019

Brief Structure

For all three groups, the JCECE 2019 will be conducted as an objective type test. Also, for all groups, each question will have four options from which the test-takers will have to choose one correct option. Each correct answer will bring one mark to the candidates and for every wrong answer, there will be negative marking of 1/4th. If a question does not have any option from the candidates, there will not be any deduction.

JCECE Exam Pattern

If a candidate has marked more than one option for a question, it will be considered wrong and 1/4th mark will be deducted for that particular question. The question paper will have questions in English and Hindi. In the case of any mismatch between these two languages for any question, the one in English will be considered as correct.

  • In the case of a tie even after this, the older candidate will be given higher rank
  • Finally, as per English alphabetic order, the first name will be considered for ranking.

For Other Courses

  • First preference for ranking will be given to candidates with higher marks in physics
