      Ravikiran,, You can appear for JEE Main in 2019 but not in JEE Advanced. Subject to other conditions, JEE Main permits three attempts , reckoned from the year in which you first appear for your 12th class. It does not matter whether appeared in any intervening year or not. Similarly, JEE Advanced eligibility conditions permit you to take the JEE Advanced two times, again reckoned from the year in which you appear in your 12th class. It does not matter if you skipped one or more year. Your last chance to take the JEE Advanced was 2018, which you have missed already. Don't lose heart. Focus on JEE Main and try to get into any top NIT or IIIT. These institutions are also very prestigious and you can make a very good career and can reach at top positions in your career globally.
