JEE Main 2021 January Session Might Get Postponed Till February – Sources

The Joint Entrance Exam or JEE Main 2021 January session is expected to be shifted to February 2021. According to sources, a sudden surge in the number of COVID-19 cases and the ongoing admission process in engineering colleges are the prominent reasons why the authorities are contemplating rescheduling the exam. As per a senior official, the rescheduling of the exam would also benefit the students who are not satisfied with their allotted branch or their JEE Main score.

 A senior official in an interaction with PTI stated- 

“As the engineering admission is still underway, it is being considered that JEE-Main of 2021 be pushed to February. This will give a chance to students who were not satisfied with the choice of branch or their score”.

He also added- “Rising number of coronavirus cases is also a factor”.

Earlier, it was also hinted by the officials that the official notification for JEE Main 2021 (January) might be released by the end of November 2020 and the registration/application process might commence from the 1st week of December 2020. The formal announcement will soon be notified on the official website- jeemain.nta.nic.in.

JEE Main is conducted in 2 sessions in a single calendar year- January session and April session.
