    • Hi
      Attempts limit for an exam means the number of times a student can appear for the exam.
      For JEE Mains, NTA does not impose that limit. But it imposes a limit on the year of qualifying exam.
      Likewise, age limit is another criteria. Each exam has different eligibility criteria. For exams such as JEE Main, bodies such as NTA decide what it will be. For the JEE Advanced, the decisions are of the JAB.
