Change your answer– Since students can change their answers in the online mode, there are chances of them getting confused. They should not unnecessarily get worried and stick to their answers.

When the timer reaches zero, the examination will end by itself. Students should not be worried about saving or submitting the examination. Approximately 13 lakh students took the offline mode of JEE Mains on April 3 and about 1.5 lakh students are expected to take the online mode this weekend on April 9 and 10.
