JEE Main 2021 – No Decision on Exam Dates Yet

On 15 December 2020, the National Testing Agency (NTA) released an official information brochure on the official website- jeemain.nta.nic.in. The brochure contained information regarding the JEE Main 2021 schedule and other essential information. However, the brochure was removed from the official website by 7 pm on the same day.

According to the official brochure (which was later taken down by NTA), the exams were scheduled to be held four times in four different sessions – February, March, April and May 2021. However, the brochure didn’t feature the exact dates of the examinations. The official brochure also suggested that the JEE Main 2021 registration process for February session was to commence from 15 December 2020, the deadline for which was set for January 15 2021. Additionally, the brochure contained some crucial information regarding the changes in the exam pattern of the JEE Main 2021. It mentioned that the exam would be conducted in as many as 13 regional languages.

As per the brochure, in view of the requests from students regarding the reduction of syllabus, NTA shall provide choices in section as well. However, the total number of questions to be attempted remained the same (Physics- 25, Chemistry- 25 and Mathematics- 25).

On the removal of the official brochure from NTA’s website, the Education Ministry later stated that “no decision has been taken on JEE Main dates yet” and that “NTA has denied the report”.

In the meanwhile, candidates are advised to wait for a final JEE Main 2021 official notification by the governing body of the exam and the Education Ministry to determine whether the changes mentioned in the scrapped brochure will be applicable or not. The details are expected to be released in the next few days.
