JEE Main Exam Dates Schedule – Revised Exam Dates (Out), Details

On 4th July 2020, HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal announced that the JEE Main 2020 April session will be conducted between 1st and 6th September 2020. The announcement was made while he was addressing the issues faced by the students during a live interaction on social media platform. The exam will be conducted in the CBT (Computer-based Test) mode. NTA has also reopened the application form correction facility for JEE Main till 31st July 2020 (11.50 PM).

Candidates have also been provided with an option to change their respective preference for the JEE Main center, so that they canΒ  opt for a nearby exam center. This will help the students who are relocated to different places due to the COVID-19 lockdown. It is expected that the NTA would soon announce the official dates for other events related to the JEE Main 2020 as well.

The JEE Main April exams were previously scheduled to commence from 18th July to 23rd July 2020 but with regards to the safety of candidates during the Covid 19 Pandemic, the exam officials have taken the all important decision of extending the exam dates. Due to such a long wait, the final announcement of JEE Main exam dates by the HRD minister has surely brought a sigh of relief to the aspiring candidates.

Important Update- NTA has released application correction guidelines for JEE Main 2020. As the dates for JEE Main 2020 and NDA exam are clashing this year (1st to 6th September), candidates are urged to tap on the ‘Yes option”, which signifies that they are appearing for the NDA exam as well. This would eliminate the possibility of clashing of dates for both the important exams.

Important Update- NTA releases the admit cards for the JEE Main April session 2020 (now September session). The admit cards were released on the official website of NTA from 19th August 2020 onwards.
